Zidane refuses to rule out managing Juve

first_imgAhead of the quarter-final clash between Juventus and Real Madrid, Zidane also shared his thoughts on their rival, their level and his own future.Looking back on the past, Zinedine Zidane has won two Serie A titles as a player, back while he was playing at Juve between 1996 and 2001. This is why he does not exclude the chance to come back one day, only this time as a coach.Now, even though he signed a new contract to stay at Real Madrid in September, his future as a Los Blancos coach is far from certain, considering the many failures all across the tournaments they have made this season.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“Manager of Juventus one day? Never say never, but I’m happy where I am now,”  Zidane shared, according to BBC.“We’re not going to think about what happened 10 months ago, what counts is what happens tomorrow,” the Real Madrid manager went on to add.last_img read more

For Cardiffs boss there are two EPL leagues

first_imgAccording to him, the English Premier League is divided into the Top Six and the rest of the competitionFor newly-promoted Cardiff City, this has been a rough start of the season.The club is in 19th position, out of 20 teams, with only two points after two draws and four defeats.Part of these losses came against teams like Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City.And for its manager Neil Warnock, this is one of the reasons the league is divided among two.“There are two leagues. It’s the top six playing against each other and the rest of them fighting for their places. In our first 10 games, we’re going to play against the top seven from last year, it’s a horrific fixture list really,” Warnock told Sky Sports.“I’m pleased with how they’ve adapted. I’m disappointed we haven’t got more points on the board, if we’d have had nine or 10 points I think we’d have deserved it.”“We’ve just got to get on with it, and this game is one of the games outside of the top six, and I’m sure Sean is thinking exactly the same: ‘Thank goodness we’re going to Cardiff, the way they’re playing!’” he added.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.The Welsh side will play against Burnley today.“It’s a game we could get something out of, and that’s what we’re trying to do.”“But I still think we can put a performance on to get results, and we’ve got to get results.

Dybala wants Scaloni as the permanent Argentina boss

first_imgJuventus star Paul Dybala, came out in Lionel Scaloni’s defense and asked the Argentina Football Federation to keep him as the permanent manager.After the painful World Cup elimination against France, the Argentina National Tem quickly started looking for a new manager as they appointed Lionel Scaloni as the interim boss but players like Paulo Dybala seem to like his methods so far.During the process of five matches with him as the coach, Argentina has won three matches against Guatemala, Irak, and Mexico.Those three games can be considered slightly less competitive, but the ones against Colombia and Brazil weren’t and they didn’t exactly get a good result in either of them.The first one against the ‘Cafeteros’ ended with a goalless draw, whereas the other one against Brazil finished with a tight 1-0 defeat that proved this squad filled with inexperienced players wants to stay and prove that they can replace the older generation that just retired.But in order to keep delivering results, Argentina first needs to have a certain balance and not knowing who their permanent manager is could set them back quite a bit.After last Friday’s victory against Mexico, some players sent AFA a direct message about Lionel Scaloni.#SelecciónMayor 🎙 @PauDybala_JR: “Traté de moverme en base a cómo estaban parados los rivales. Estamos trabajando bien. El grupo es muy lindo y estamos todos a disposición del DT”. pic.twitter.com/LxnIsbMQ92— Selección Argentina 🇦🇷 (@Argentina) November 17, 2018The interim manager may not have gotten all the positive results he wanted, but he did earn the respect of all the players and he got reinforced by Paulo Dybala’s public support to keep his job on a permanent basis.The Juventus star is having a leading role inside the squad, he is practically playing the same position that Lionel Messi plays and he has developed a special connection with the boss.The former Argentina player has a technical staff that is filled with other former players such as Pablo Aimar or Walter Samuel, all of them share a deep love for the national team and everyone is looking for better results for the squad.This hard work has translated well to all the players, Scaloni has even made a positive connection with Lionel Messi when they both discussed the best ways to give the Barcelona star some rest before he decides to come back to the team for a proper final chapter of his time in the national team.It’s evident that Scaloni could be a good choice for the squad, but AFA seems to still want a manager with greater experience before making that decision.FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).#SelecciónMayor Tras el partido, los futbolistas de @Argentina atendieron a los medios de comunicación en zona mixta. pic.twitter.com/fC3XuS029o— Selección Argentina 🇦🇷 (@Argentina) November 17, 2018As time keeps going by and Scaloni gets more practice hours with the players, he is steadily winning the hearts of everybody in camp and they might soon all be willing to publicly acknowledge that he is the better choice for such a young group of players.The option of Cesar Luis Menotti seems to be the better one for Argentina, but bringing ‘Flaco’ back from retirement will be impossible for AFA right now and there are other options that aren’t a certain thing either.Meanwhile, Paulo Dybala gave his two cents on the matter: “We are working very well with him (Lionel Scaloni) and his technical staff supports all of us,” said Dybala to the AFA official website.“We obviously want him to continue but we also know that it’s not our decision to make. He gives us all the freedom and makes us work in a great manner.”“This is an amazing group where everybody is pulling forward and I believe that with his help, we can keep going this way.”“Obviously in my position, any player would want to score goals but I can’t be selfish in that aspect.”“Today I got to assist a teammate and I have to be happy because the team won, but I’m not nervous because I didn’t get a chance to score,” he concluded.#SelecciónMayor El equipo de @lioscaloni trabaja luego del triunfo de ayer ante @miseleccionmx. pic.twitter.com/OO0ok4CluD— Selección Argentina 🇦🇷 (@Argentina) November 17, 2018Do you think Scaloni is the best option to remain as the Argentina manager or who else would you pick?

Obiang welcomes competition for places

first_imgWest Ham midfielder Pedro Obiang believes competition for starting places in the squad motivates players to improve their games.West Ham secured their fourth consecutive Premier League win on Saturday with a 2-0 victory against Fulham, and Obiang says competition in the Hammers squad is responsible for their recent run of form.“I think competition is the most important thing,” Obiang told the club’s website.“In every big squad, you have to have plenty of players ready to help the team, and we are doing that. It is a good thing. We are all good teammates too, which makes a difference.“Our good players made the difference against Fulham. I’ve said, if we score our chances, we have the possibility of doing anything. We want to continue doing that.”What we learned from day 2 of the Premier League? Taimoor Khan – August 20, 2019 The new Premier League season is only two weeks old but it has already taught us a few things that could define the campaign….Obiang has been in and out of the starting lineup this season, but he says it will serve as a motivation for him to step up his game.“I don’t feel the pressure. I feel happy. It’s always better when we win, rather than when we lose.” he said.“Mark and Declan keep playing well and that means I have to train better and improve, which is only a good thing.”last_img read more

There are 98 comments posted about the picturesque spot which is most impressive due to three elements mainly it seems: the donkeys, the zip lining and the amazing view. Nonetheless, residents and officials agree that it is time for the Grand Turk Lighthouse to be spruced up, significantly. It is believed that it will take more than is currently allotted to create the kind of historic attraction that is the Lighthouse roadway and Lighthouse landmark in Grand Turk. The Cabinet agreed to increase the redevelopment by $30,000, subject to Carnival Cruise Lines approval as a part of the Infrastructure Fund. The minutes from the meeting explained that the money would be needed to facilitate the implementation of the consultancy to provide design and technical documentation suitable to tender for the reconstruction and upgrading of Lighthouse Road in Grand Turk. In 2013, it was said some $2 million dollars was assigned for the Carnival Infrastructure Fund; $650,000 of that is to be provided by TCIG.last_img read more

Governor makes statement on recent crime in TCI

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, February 7, 2017 -His Excellency the Governor,  Dr John Freeman, who, like the Premier, is currently on official business in London, made the following statement earlier today:   “I have learned with much concern of reported crime which has taken place in TCI over the past few days. I am in regular contact with the Commissioner of Police who has reported to me on the ongoing investigations being conducted by the RTCIPF. Understandably these crimes have given rise to considerable public anxiety. The right response to criminal acts is the identification and early arrest of those assessed to be responsible; that is what the officers of the RTCIPF are actively engaged upon now. “That is the right immediate response, but the fight against crime in TCI requires a whole of government and whole of community response sustained over time. This has been recognized by the National Security Council chaired by me and the Premier. The need for additional resources by which to fight and defeat the criminals is one aspect of the longer term response, and provision of additional resources for the Police and other government ministries and agencies is currently under discussion in Cabinet as part of the budget development process for 2017/18. More broadly still, it is my intention to ensure that best use will be made of the upcoming  (UK financed) Security Needs Assessment to be carried out in TCI later this month. I will be meeting the team who will carry out that assessment tomorrow, 8 February, while I am in London.

The ads will appear on billboards, posters, bus stop displays and on the radio.“We need to make the public aware on how traffickers operate,” San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan said. “Since January is human trafficking awareness month, this is a perfect opportunity to educate the parents about the many ways sex dealers approach our children, including through their mobile devices or at school.”One ad reads “Sex Traffickers Love Technology Too” and depicts a teen using her phone alongside the text, “Traffickers use social media to befriend kids and gain their trust. Victims fall into a life of violence, drugs and sex slavery.”The FBI lists San Diego as one of the top 13 highest sex trafficking areas in the country. Each year, thousands of people in the region are estimated to be victims of trafficking.Officials at 90 percent of 20 San Diego high schools surveyed by researchers said sex trafficking victimization had happened at their schools, according to a 2016 Point Loma Nazarene University/University of San Diego study.Sex trafficking is second only to drug trafficking among the largest underground economies in the region, according to the study.The San Diego City Council on Tuesday voted to declare January as human trafficking awareness month.To report suspected human trafficking, call (888) 3737-888 or text “Help” or “Info” to 233733. last_img read more
