I am not sure Daniel Levy will have that in any way shape or form.”With Chelsea manager Frank Lampard unable to make summer signings due to a transfer embargo at the start of the season, former team-mate Willian has became a regular starter, since scoring seven goals in 37 games.But despite several European suitors interested in the potential free signing, Mills reckons the playmaker may have to accept a role on the bench wherever he ends up next season.He said: “Willian is a brilliant player.

The day David Silva rejected Real Madrid

first_imgHELIOS DE LA RUBIA & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Silva with his father and the president of Arguineguín the day he did the tests with Real Madrid.HELIOS DE LA RUBIA (DAILY AS) After David Silva’s refusal was the Valencia The one who appeared on the scene. This was revealed by Sixto Alonso, scout of the Real Madrid factory expert in the Canary quarry: “I recommended David Silva to Real Madrid twice. The club did some tests in a month of May. He liked it, but he did not convince. He returned in September to play a tournament where Valencia also participated. When Valencia learned that Real Madrid did not want it for the second time, he called immediately to incorporate it into his youth. They are things that can happen. When you have to make 100 decisions a year, it is normal that one is wrong, but many others are correct. “Edu Álvarez, a physiotherapist from Manchester City and a close friend of David Silva, also explains why the Canary chose to go to the Premier after leaving Valencia: “In clubs like Real Madrid or Barcelona, ​​the media and fans can be really intrusive. Footballers in England are more respected, people are only interested in what they do in the field.”The player lived a very intense 2010 year. Before being world champion with the Spanish National Team in the World Cup in South Africa He was close to signing again for Real Madrid. He was chosen by the white team for the midfield. However, Manchester City raised the white offer and took the player from Valencia for € 33M during the World Cup competition.

At that time, the former Spanish coach was working in the Real Madrid quarry: “Del Bosque saw him. He told me, when he talked about him, that he had quality and vision of the game. And he told me that the boy was very small.”By cons, Silva’s father was clear in his position from the start: “I told him that the boy did not take him there to stay. He took him out of engagement with a friend. I told them that if they thought he was an interesting player, he would go to his village and be followed.” Vicente Miranda, President of the Arguineguin, accompanied David Silva to Silva’s tests with Real Madrid. He remembered in AS how those days were: “We took him because he had incredible conditions for a boy his age and we were convinced he would stay.” Even, he says, he surprised Míchel: “He was looking at his son and he looked at us with a look of amazement every time David touched the ball.” He stays safe, “he told us. In the end they did not stay in Madrid because they thought it was very short, “he concluded. Football are moments and decisions. Many decisions. Clubs like Real Madrid have to take many throughout the season and even more if it’s the situation of their quarry players. There was a day, not far away, in which David Silva could play at Real Madrid.The Canarian midfielder has had a successful career in soccer elite and It has been a key piece in one of the best templates in the history of Valencia and Manchester City, club that will leave at the end of this season. However, during his base football player stage He was tempted several times by Real Madrid.

The talented soccer player was invited with 12 years to pass some tests with the white club. Silva did not stay in Madrid and The two sides agreed to follow-up in order to repeat the tests the following summer. Nevertheless, Silva revealed in ‘Made In Gran Canaria’, documentary made by Manchester City, white interest and its rejection: “They called me every year, but we decided not to go.

KC too good for C’down

first_img Maintaining record Many-time ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup winners Kingston College are still unbeaten in this year’s competition. Yesterday, they completed their preliminary-round fixtures with a 2-0 run over Camperdown High at the Stadium East. The win lifted KC to 22 points from eight games in Group G. The second round and FLOW Super Cup qualifiers are ten points clear of Camperdown, who remain second in the group on 12 points, two ahead of Jose Marti High. Both schools have played seven matches. Dashawn Donaldson and Ericardo McNish were the scorers for KC yesterday, and coach Ludlow Bernard, who said he rested three key players, was happy with what he described as the same quality output from his team. “Our motivation today was to maintain our unbeaten record. That was the real motivation today, and although I would have switched up some of our players, it didn’t really make a difference. They knew what they had to do to win,” he assessed. With rumours swirling among the KC supporters that coach Christopher Bender’s job is on the line for poor results this season, Camperdown’s assistant coach, Stanford Patrick, told The Sunday Gleaner they had no fear for their jobs. “We are here, we are doing our best. Sometimes, you have spectators saying this and past students saying that, but no fear from us for our jobs. Whatever happens, you will see in 2016,” he said. Elsewhere, defending Manning and FLOW Super Cup champions Jamaica College cemented their place in the next round with an easy 3-0 rout of St Catherine High in Group A.

Key Shiite leader travels to U.S. for medical care

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BAGHDAD – The leader of the most powerful Shiite party in Iraq has flown to the United States for further tests to determine if he is suffering from lung cancer, members of his staff said Saturday. Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim traveled to the United States on Wednesday after U.S. military doctors advised him to undergo further tests, according to staff members who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the issue to the media. Al-Hakim is a key player in Iraqi politics and despite his close ties to Iran, he has been a major partner in U.S. efforts to build a democratic system after the collapse of Saddam Hussein’s regime in 2003. American efforts to push through major reforms such as a new oil law and expanded opportunities for Sunnis in government would face even more hurdles without al-Hakim’s active support. Iraqi President Jalal Talabani also was traveling to the United States for a medical checkup at the Mayo Clinic, a senior Kurdish politician close to the Iraqi leader said Saturday. The 73-year-old Sunni Kurd was hospitalized in Jordan for about two weeks.last_img read more

Mourinho refuses to slam Smalling over costly dive

first_img0Shares0000Newcastle United’s midfielder Matt Ritchie (2ndL) celebrates after scoring on February 11, 2018 © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYNEWCASTLE, United Kingdom, Feb 12 – Jose Mourinho has refused to criticise Chris Smalling for a dive which led to the decisive goal in Manchester United’s shock 1-0 defeat at Newcastle.Mourinho was scathing about United’s defending as Matt Ritchie scored from the 65th minute free-kick awarded after Smalling threw himself to the ground before he was tackled by Jonjo Shelvey. The Manchester United defender’s yellow card was followed by further punishment as Shelvey’s free-kick was headed down by Florian Lejeune before Dwight Gayle touched it into the path of Ritchie.But he didn’t turn his guns on England international Smalling.“I’ve no complaints. I don’t like to complain about referees in this kind of situation, but I was disappointed with our defending,” Mourinho said.“I don’t know if it was a free-kick, but I know we missed a challenge in the air.“I remember a Newcastle player jumping while two of my men were looking at him and staying on the floor, then we missed the second ball.“We try to work on organisation. They have their jobs and know their responsibility.”It was the closest Mourinho came to criticising his players in a surprisingly composed assessment of one of their worst performances of the season.His comments to his players in the privacy of the dressing room are likely to possess a far sharper edge after they fell 16 points behind leaders Manchester City.Paul Pogba, in particular, can expect to be a target for harsh words from the manager.The United midfielder drifted through the match and was substituted shortly after he failed to compete with Lejeune when the defender set up the decisive goal.Asked about Pogba’s failure to influence the game, Mourinho said: “It’s very difficult to put me in a position where I have to criticise my players.”However, Mourinho was far more eager to give his verdict on Newcastle’s players and left nobody in any doubt he was impressed by their response to dropping into the bottom three in the wake of good results for their relegation rivals.– ‘Fought like animals’ –“Newcastle’s players gave what they have and what they don’t have – and that’s a beautiful thing in football. They fought like animals,” he said.“They came here to fight for a point, then found themselves in a position of being 1-0 up.“In that moment, they went to the limits of their effort and sacrifice and everything a manager likes to see in their team.“I saw it in my team after we went behind. I saw that desire to try to the last second.“I imagine that Rafa Benitez is more than pleased with the efforts of his players.“Were they lucky? Yes, they were, but sometimes you attract that luck with your state of mind.“I think we did more than enough to leave without a defeat.”Newcastle boss Benitez shared Mourinho’s assessment of the Magpies players.“Every player gave everything, which was fantastic,” he said.“We have been so close to winning so many games, but today we did it and it’s even better. It’s a boost for everyone.”Newcastle were indebted to goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, who made two fine saves in an assured debut.“He did well for his first game. A clean sheet against Manchester United is fantastic, but everybody was working hard to defend,” Benitez said.“There was passion and commitment from everyone. These players don’t give up.“We have some limitations and problems, but you could see they were giving everything.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

IT’S THE MICHAEL MURPHY SHOW AS GLENSWILLY CROWNED 2013 COUNTY CHAMPIONS

first_imgJust champion!BREAKING NEWS: GLENSWILLY are 2013 Senior County Football Champions.They easily saw off Killybegs in the final at MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey this afternoon with their county stars – and in particular Michael Murphy – proving the massive difference.Both Neil Gallagher and Michael Murphy found the net in a superb 16-point win for the 2011 champions who are taking the Dr Maguire Cup back to the Glen this evening after a winning scoreline of 3-19 to 2-06. Glenswilly had led by just a point at half time – 1-07 to 2-03 in a goal-dominated first half in which Murphy was superb.But Man of the Match Murphy was even better in the second half, setting up the Gallagher goal early on before back-heeling a ball which new county team mate Ciaran Bonner converted.The Ireland International Rules captain showed no hangover from yesterday’s game against Australia to score after just 15 seconds with a superb point.And he added a second a few minutes later after winning the ball and taking a foul in the process – sticking the free over the bar. Murphy was going for a hat-trick of scores a short time later but ended up on the ground clutching his ankle.Killybegs finally responded – with a fortunate goal.Christopher Murrin sent in a high ball, O’Donnell misjudged and the ball ended up in the back of the net.Murphy did get his hat-trick a short time later – from the penalty spot, sticking the ball away.Killybegs went ahead again however; this time Hugh McFadden fisting to the back of the net – 2-0 to to Murphy’s 1-02. Murphy was on the end of some heavy challenges, and ended up being yellow carded himself as the game became scrappy and the half-time whistle went on a scoreline of 1-07 to 2-03 to Glenswilly.But the second half saw Glenswilly’s experience tell and they went on to see off the game with a superb performance.Murphy set up county team mate Gallagher for his side’s second goal and when Jason Noctor was sent off for another yellow card offence – and another foul on Murphy – the game was over as a contest.Then the Donegal captain cheekily back-heeled the ball Keelan McFadden who squared for Bonner to add the third goal. The points were raining in too throughout the second half with Gary McFadden hitting some superb points.Final score Glenswilly 3-19, Killybegs 2-06.Glenswilly manager Gary McDaid said afterwards: “It’s an incredible day and we have now won our second senior title.” IT’S THE MICHAEL MURPHY SHOW AS GLENSWILLY CROWNED 2013 COUNTY CHAMPIONS was last modified: October 20th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:county finalglenswillyKillybegslast_img read more

McCONALOGUE FEARS DONEGAL SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS WILL STRIKE OVER JUNIOR CERT REFORM

first_imgCharlie McConalogue TDFianna Fáil’s Education spokesperson Charlie McConalogue TD has called on the Education Minister to engage meaningfully with teachers unions to find a solution to the ongoing industrial unrest over the Junior Cert reform.His comments come after 84% of ASTI members voted overwhelmingly to extend their industrial action because of a lack of progress on the issue. The Donegal TD said: “Minister O’Sullivan’s handling of the planned reform of the Junior Cert has been extremely disappointing. She has continued to press ahead with the flawed and contentious approach adopted by her predecessor and has shown no intention of taking the concerns of teachers and parents on board. “The Minister’s insistence on implementing the new English cycle this September has been met with fierce resistance from teachers who are worried about the abolition of independent assessment, a measure they claim will make the new cycle “educationally unsound”. Members of the ASTI have indicated through this ballot that they are prepared to stage a one-day strike to emphasise their concerns. The Minister’s botched management of this issue could now see students directly impacted by the fallout from this industrial relations dispute.“Fianna Fáil recognises the need for reform of the Junior Cert; however it cannot be rushed through in a bullish manner without the support of educators and parents. Minister Quinn, and now Minister O’Sullivan have ignored the independent advice of the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, which recommended a mix of school based and State assessment, and have instead ploughed ahead with their own divisive measures.“I believe it was a mistake for the Minister to begin the roll out of the controversial Junior Cycle reforms this September without all party agreement. The Minister must begin a process of real engagement with teachers in order to deliver the best possible education to second level students. If Minister O’Sullivan continues with her current approach to the reform process, it will be marred by continued industrial unrest”.  McCONALOGUE FEARS DONEGAL SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS WILL STRIKE OVER JUNIOR CERT REFORM was last modified: October 7th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalstriketeacherslast_img read more
