Bird denies getting $10 million COVID-19 loan

“Bird was erroneously listed as a company that filed for a PPP Loan. We did not apply for nor did we receive a PPP Loan. We decided as a company not to file an application as we did not want to divert critical funding from small and local businesses.” – Bird

Aina’s signing follows the capture of midfielder Harrison Reed, goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, right back Kenny Tete and relevant internet page midfielder Mario Lemina and left back Antonee Robinson while winger Anthony Knockaert’s loan move was made permanent.

Leeds, making their return to the top flight after a 16-year absence, fought back from behind three times and played the brand of intense, attacking football that their Argentine manager Marcelo Bielsa established during their promotion campaign last season.

According to VanderZanden, Bird had begun an application with Citi “early on,” but decided not to go through with it on April 23. “It looks like Citi started an application while they waited for our decision on whether to formally apply…They confirmed that the temp app. was cancelled that evening and never submitted.”

The filing indicated the company has $1.4 billion of cash on hand, though revenue plunged 67% in the second quarter. If there’s a smidge of a silver lining, Hertz did say demand has slowly started to recover each month, but it’s nowhere near pre-COVID-19 levels. Still, the firm plans to offload another 182,000 cars in its rental fleet. According to the report, Hertz already sold off 100,000 cars as it reached a deal to forgo lease payments on the vehicles’ master lease to save money amid bankruptcy.

Bird has denied it received a loan from the US government to help it through COVID-19. Its statements follow reports Monday that the electric scooter company received between $5 million and $10 million under the government’s Paycheck Protection Program in April. Both CNBC and The Verge found Bird in the data released Monday by the Trump administration as part of its coronavirus economic stimulus package under the CARES Act, but Bird says it didn’t go through with its loan application.

Bale has another two years on his contract with Real, who seem desperate to offload him. Reports this week suggested the Spanish champions will pay half of Bale’s £600,000-a-week wage if someone takes him.

According to a Bloomberg report on Tuesday, Hertz filed for debtor-in-possession financing, indicating choppy waters ahead. DIP financing comes from creditors who believe a company has a solid recovery plan to execute as it works to restructure. But as a rental car companies are reliant on travelers, the industry’s likely in for a gloomy outlook considering the coronavirus pandemic continues unchecked in numerous parts of the world.

But Leeds showed their resolve again with Patrick Bamford slotting home after Van Dijk had uncharacteristically failed to deal with a ball over the top, his casual attempt to control the ball finding the Leeds striker with keeper Alisson out of position.

But eight minutes later Jack Harrison, on loan from Manchester City, brought Leeds level with a fine solo goal, picking the ball up on the left-flank and cutting inside, skipping past Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez, before drilling into the bottom corner.

Watford were the more vibrant side before half-time before retreating after the break.
Middlesbrough saw chances come and go, with Britt Assombalonga their most dangerous player, but Watford showed a resoluteness often missing last season.

He added: ‘At other clubs, they would be building a statue outside the ground to celebrate him but he has been treated with disrespect by Real Madrid for a long time now and clearly he needs to find a way to get out of there because he has not played enough football in recent months.’

A season beginning with fans still barred from the grounds due to COVID-19 restrictions needed a start to spark some excitement among frustrated fans and this high-energy, incident-packed encounter certainly delivered.

It’s early days of course and the remaining weeks of the transfer window will bring further upheaval, but Watford proved just about superior to a Middlesbrough team who you sense would be more than content with mid-table anonymity.
