Weekend Reads Waldhof coach urges better exploitation of chances
Alberta RCMP investigating after far-right groups confront anti-racism rally-goers
RED DEER, Alta. — RCMP in Alberta say they are investigating after an anti-racism rally in Red Deer turned violent on the weekend. News footage from CityTV Edmonton shows counter-protesters shoving demonstrators who had gathered to denounce racism, but no RCMP officers are seen intervening. Alberta Justice Minister Kaycee Madu says violence and threats of violence are unacceptable and he has urged the RCMP's commanding officer in Alberta to get to the bottom of what happened. Madu says the Mounties have told him they weren't there for the initial confrontation because protest organizers changed the location of the rally at the last minute.

"You have strengths on the offensive," explained the Mannheim coach, who was able to rely on Jesper Verlaat again in training. The defender is not yet an option for the game against Munich. Up to 3754 spectators can watch the game in the Carl Benz Stadium.
