The 36-year-old arrived in Limerick in March 2015 and had, for a time, been living in a makeshift camp along the banks of the River Shannon.In the last three years, Vedran and his faithful companion have been homeless in France, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia, Italy and Bosnia and Herzegovina.Since arriving in Limerick, he claims that none of Limerick’s homeless shelters would accommodate his pet, which he refers to as a therapy dog to help him deal with his mental health issues. He told the Limerick Post that he has been attacked and had his tent burnt down during his time in the city, which lead to a breakdown and a period in hospital.“I was doing my best to keep myself healthy, mentally and physically. I feel I have been completely left behind by some public services, especially when I was dealing with the council’s homeless team,” Vedran said.“I am now emotionally exhausted and probably in need of another recovery period in hospital. I only managed to get a little bit of work since March, mostly because nobody would employ me with my current situation. I have had to borrow money from family and friends and I have been living for at least six months with less than €5 a day in my pocket.”Earlier this year, Vedran had his passport and other documents and valuables including a laptop stolen while travelling by train from Galway to Dublin. He now feels desperate, is in need of support, and does not know where to turn.“I am grateful for all the help I have received from people in Limerick but what I really need is to be treated fairly by public services such as the social welfare office,” he concluded.

Arteta was alongside Pep Guardiola for Man City’s 3-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday (AFP via Getty Images)‘There’s no responsibility in terms of going with runners defending.‘There are no tackles until they get way back on the edge of their own box which is too late then.‘So I can see Arteta going into Arsenal and going, ‘you know what, in terms of build-up possession, keeping the ball, we’ve got players who can do that. All I need to teach this team is attitude to defend and win the ball back between five and eight seconds, which is what Man City do’. That’s his philosophy.‘I think he can can instil that at Arsenal, he can tweak Arsenal in terms of defenders, which I think they definitely need.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘Defenders are dropping too deep, they are not going and pressing it, they are not mobile and athletic enough to play the way he’ll probably want to play.‘He could change that a little bit but he can also change that in the transfer market.‘I just think Arsenal are further ahead than Everton are and Arteta knows Arsenal, he’s got an affinity with Arsenal, it’s a little bit like Frank [Lampard] going to Chelsea, he knows Chelsea, it’s working, he knows the kids there.‘And with that front line I’d me going, ‘I’d love to work with that front line, just throw them a ball they’ll score goals, now behind that I need to [address it].’ Arteta has been Guardiola’s assistant at Man City since 2016 (EPA)‘You think that would be anti-Manchester City but Manchester City only win the league because of their raised defence, because when they are attacking they defend.‘And they are not winning games in the present moment because they are not doing that consistently enough and they’re getting caught.‘Arsenal are not doing that at all. That’s why Man City scored three easy goals on transition counter-attacks, their team is like that [open] instead of being compact.‘So he [Arteta] just needs to tweak a few things, work on the training ground, get the players around him, change the attitude, get them working harder off the ball and recovering the ball quicker and Arsenal can be better than what they are.’AdvertisementAdvertisementMore: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

The Daily Orange regrets this error. UPDATED: Oct. 15, 2012, 7:12 p.m.A man was stabbed on the concourse of the Carrier Dome on Friday night at Syracuse University’s Orange Madness event.The stabbing occurred at 9:30 p.m. The victim was stabbed in the upper shoulder area, according to a notice sent to students by the Department of Public Safety early Saturday morning.The victim, a 25-year-old male, was transported to Upstate University Hospital, said Sgt. Tom Connellan of the Syracuse Police Department. The victim is not an SU student and no SU students were involved, Connellan said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textConnellan later identified the victim as Shoquinn Benton. As of Sunday morning, Connellan said he didn’t know Benton’s current condition but that Benton’s injury was non-life threatening. A nursing supervisor at University Hospital said the hospital had no one currently admitted by that name.SPD received multiple reports of fights breaking out in the concourse areas near the concession stands prior to receiving a report of the stabbing, Connellan said. No students are believed to have been involved in any of the fights, he said.SPD currently has no suspects and no one in custody. Because the stabbing is a criminal investigation, Connellan said, SPD will handle all aspects of the case.It is not yet known whether the stabbing or any of the fights were gang-related, Connellan said.“We don’t know at this point because the victim is not cooperating,” he said.Due to “continuing disturbances” in the crowd, the event ended 30 minutes early, Connellan said.“That was done in the interest of public safety, to get everyone out of here in an orderly fashion,” he said.Orange Madness, an event to kick off the SU men’s and women’s basketball teams’ seasons, began at 8 p.m. in the Dome. More than 15,000 people attended. General admission for the event was free and open to the public.This was the fourth year in a row that the event was held in the Carrier Dome after moving from Manley Field House. While it has been free and open to the public in past years, this is the first time a problem of this nature has come about, Connellan said.Chancellor Nancy Cantor and Athletic Director Daryl Gross released a joint statement early Saturday morning addressing the stabbing.“We were saddened to learn of the incident at the Dome last night,” Cantor and Gross said in the statement. “There is no place and no tolerance for anything like this, and future Orange Madness events will be designed to prevent incidents such as this.”The incident may spur changes to future events like Orange Madness, according to the DPS notice.“The University has already begun to carefully review the ticketing, seating and overall plan for future Orange Madness events,” according to the notice.Multiple police units helped facilitate the early exit and no additional problems occurred, Connellan said.“We want to assure everyone that the Dome is safe,” he said. “This is a very rare event to have something like this happen inside the Dome.”Devon Balk, a sophomore information and technology major who attended the event, said she noticed the event was shorter, but was unsure why.“They didn’t make a big deal out of it, but you could tell something was going on,” she said. “Everyone’s head turned and I saw security guards chasing people. I just thought it was a fight.”Balk said she saw police cars outside, but didn’t think anything of it, and that she didn’t notice anyone panicking.Kelsey Francella, a sophomore communications design major who also attended the event, said the incident was “bizarre” and that attendees were “packed like sardines” as they left the Dome.“We saw the security guards in the yellow jackets getting people out of their seats,” she said. “I don’t think anyone knew (about the incident), at least students, until after.”—Editor in Chief Mark Cooper and Asst.
