first_imgHow do you carry the confinement ?: “We handle the situation as best we can, trying to physically support ourselves as much as possible. I get along well, I am quite a home person and I think it is not a great effort that we are being asked to stay home. I am strictly adhering to it. I am with my partner and I try to have a daily routine that is not far from what my life was. Get up early, have breakfast, do exercises to keep fit and then spend time with chores around the house, reading, watching series, movies … “.What message does the club transmit to them ?: “The club transmits tranquility and patience to us and that we do not lower our arms because at any moment we can return. You have to keep fit and prepared for the decisions that may come. ”How do you think this situation will be resolved ?: “I think it will be played, I do not know in what periods or when. The fairest thing would be to finish. What I am in favor of is that health comes first and when everything is well secured, the secondary can start walking. ”Workforce salary reduction: “We have been talking, in communication. It is true that the club is the one that has to take the measures and do the corresponding studies. Each club has a totally different situation and the players have always been willing to listen and help the club from day one. Ours is a different situation than the rest because of everything we have been experiencing since the beginning of the year. Now the administrator has to take the necessary measures. All the employees and the players have been willing to listen. We are not clear about anything, studies are being done and when everything is clear we will be notified and an agreement will be reached in every way. ”The club has a huge pay gap: “The numbers that come out are worrying. We decided to be isolated from everything. The situation is worrying from the beginning of the season. The players decided to isolate ourselves from all this because we do not know how true the news that comes to us is. We live day by day and each one, from their situation, tries to help as much as possible ”.Shaheen’s moves: “Everything we have experienced since the beginning of the season is unreal. We must dedicate ourselves to minimize problems and play. People will be deceived by the press conference that he gave, which was a bit unrealistic because of the numbers he gave and because of the sports city. We live in a very uncomfortable situation at the beginning of the season ”. Renewal: “They have told me that they are happy with me, but they have not spoken because of the uncertainty the club is experiencing. I have always shown that I am happy at Malaga. We do not know what will happen or how the club will be, neither tomorrow nor the day after. I am at ease, I have been treated spectacularly from the first day. I am happy, I belong to a very large club and I would like to help as much as possible to return it where it deserves ”.He has had to experience the worst moments of Malaga in recent years: “Football gives you many things, not just results, and Malaga has given me a lot. It is a big powerlessness not to be able to see Malaga where it deserves and where it should be as a club, but I do not think it will give up. I will continue working for it. The possibilities that Málaga has as a club, until you know them, you don’t know them. I do not regret having made this decision at all. Málaga, I do not know how long, but it will return to where it has to be. One of the great powers that the club has is that there are very few players who do not want to play for Malaga. That is always going to be able to take advantage of this club. Málaga is a big club and it has many possibilities ”.Preseason before playing again: “Soccer cannot be trained anywhere that is not a soccer field. Today we would need an adaptation period, but I don’t know if a week or 15 days. The important thing is to play again and that this is over as soon as possible ”.Where could Málaga go in this season finale ?: “I do not know. Let’s see if we compete again and then we’ll see. Our goal is to win every game, we cannot think of anything other than day to day. With the situation that Malaga is experiencing day by day, thinking about the future is impossible ”.Play behind closed doors: “It is a shame, but not for us, but for depriving people of the essence of soccer, enjoying it and living it on the field. We want to play in any way and doing it behind closed doors is not going to be an impediment. It will be worse for people who cannot attend the field than for us. Play every 48 hours? Playing 11 games 48 hours apart I don’t know if the teams are going to be ready. I don’t know how it will be done, but the more hours that pass between games, the better. ”Sequelae of coronavirus: “There will surely be a before and an after. The country will suffer a lot, the recovery will be slow in every way. But I want to see the positive things. As human beings it will make us better, feeling vulnerable and weak will make us leave selfishness aside and be more supportive and it will make us stronger. That will improve the human being ”.last_img read more

It really was more just unfortunate timing and he wasn’t aware Georgia’s mascot was there. It had nothing to do with the dog.”Texas athletics spokesman John Bianco said “all established safety and security measures were in place for Bevo” at the Sugar Bowl, including two halters, two chains and six handlers to hold him.ADVERTISEMENT South Korea counting on red-hot Son Heung-min to shine on Asian Cup quest Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption LATEST STORIES No.13 lucky for Orlando Bloom View commentslast_img read more

first_imgManchester United manager Louis van Gaal believes Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Aston Villa could end up costing his side a shot at the Premier League title.The Red Devils managed to recover from their shocking start to the campaign and go on a remarkable winning run in recent weeks, recording six straight victories to lift them to third in the table.But Van Gaal believes their slip at Villa Park could threaten to undo all their hard work, having reduced the gap on league leaders Chelsea to eight points ahead of the weekend’s fixtures.United were forced to come from behind to seal a point, on-loan hitman Radamel Falcao cancelling out Christian Benteke’s opener, but the 20-time champions had plenty of chances to snatch all three in the closing stages after Gabby Agbonlahor’s harsh sending off.The draw means Chelsea can extend their lead at the top with victory over Stoke on Monday, and the Dutch boss was left to rue his side’s missed opportunity.“Yes, that’s what I mean,” he said, when asked if he feels the result cost his side their chance for title 21 this season.“We dropped two points. We were the better team and that’s frustrating when you’re the better team and you don’t win these kind of games. When you want to be a part of the title race you have to win these games.“I have seen Manchester City in the first half against Crystal Palace and they could have been behind in the first five or ten minutes. They struggled until half time but at the end it is 3-0, that’s the difference.“We weren’t so aggressive in the first half as we are usually. We kept the ball much better but didn’t create so much because we were not looking for the forwards.“It was not good enough to catch the victory here. We were not creative enough in the second half but we had more aggression so that was the plus.“We have a draw and that’s why I’m a little frustrated because you could have won the game in my opinion. We didn’t do it but we were responsible for that.”Falcao scored just his second goal for United, heading in Ashley Young’s second-half cross, and, having previously called for the striker to prove himself in a red shirt, Van Gaal was pleased with the Colombian’s impact.“It was a beautiful goal, I liked him today. I am very happy for him and I am always happy when Manchester United score,” the manager added.“I have to compare players every week, there’s always a question for every player, not only for Falcao.”last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Jose Mourinho on his first day at Spurs training. PHOTO/Spurs/TwitterLONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 20 – Jose Mourinho promised “real passion” following his appointment as Tottenham Hotspur boss on Wednesday after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked by the struggling Premier League club.The former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United manager was announced as the new boss at White Hart Lane hours after the Argentine was dismissed on Tuesday evening. “I couldn’t be happier and look forward to the challenge,” Mourinho told Tottenham’s official website.“What can I promise? Passion, real passion. Passion for my job, but also passion for my club, that’s the way I have been all my career.”The 56-year-old, who had been out of work since leaving United last December, signed a contract until the end of the 2022-23 season after Spurs acted to halt their slide down the table.The club reached the Champions League final last season but are languishing in 14th spot in the Premier League after picking up just three wins from 12 games. They are 11 points off the top four positions which allow qualification to European club football’s top competition.Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen arrives for training after Jose Mourinho was announced as the club’s new manager © AFP / Isabel Infantes“I want to try, obviously, everything to bring happiness to everyone who loves the club,” added the new manager, who has won domestic league titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain.Mourinho was due to take training on Wednesday before his first press conference on Thursday. His first game in charge is at West Ham on Saturday.His glittering CV includes Champions League titles with Porto and Inter Milan.He also won three Premier League titles over two spells in charge of Chelsea, and returned to England to manage Manchester United in 2016, where he won the Europa League and the League Cup.“In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football,” said Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. “He has a wealth of experience, can inspire teams and is a great tactician.“He has won honours at every club he has coached. We believe he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room.”Tottenham Hotspur sacked manager Mauricio Pochettino almost six months after the club reached the Champions League final © AFP/File / Ian KINGTONMourinho was sacked by United last December and has been without a club since, most recently working as a TV pundit.Despite his troubles in the latter stages of his tenure at Old Trafford he remains a big name, but is a divisive figure and there will be questions over whether his pragmatic style can mesh with Tottenham’s tradition of attacking football.– Spurs slide –Pochettino had transformed Spurs’ fortunes since arriving in 2014, qualifying for the Champions League four times.Although he failed to win a trophy, Tottenham made a dramatic run to the European Cup final for the first time in their history in June, losing 2-0 to Liverpool in Madrid.But that masked a worrying dip in domestic form in the second half of last season and Pochettino was unable to reverse the slide in this campaign.Jose Mourinho (left) has replaced Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham manager © AFP/File / Ben STANSALLThey were also bundled out of the League Cup by fourth-tier Colchester United and suffered an embarrassing 7-2 defeat at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp told the BBC that poor results had forced the club’s hand.“The same voice after six years starts to wear a little thin, a new man can find another 10 percent, they will find a spring in their step for Jose’s first game,” he said.Mourinho has a tough task on his hands. No team with as low a tally as Spurs have after 12 games — 14 points — has ever gone on to record a top-four finish.– Tributes –Pochettino, operating on a tight budget in comparison with his rivals, nurtured a squad of young players to become household names including Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.A series of Spurs players paid warm tribute to their departing manager.Tottenham and England forward Kane tweeted: “Gaffer. I’ll be forever thankful to you for helping me achieve my dreams.”South Korean forward Son Heung-min said in an Instagram post that “words are powerless to express my gratitude”.The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust released a statement expressing “concerns” and seeking clarity over how the new boss and the board would work together.The group asked: “Is the manager solely accountable? How much has the board’s line on wages and transfers contributed to player unrest and disaffection?”0Shares0000(Visited 194 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgA JUDGE has adjourned sentencing of a man who admitted loading a generator into the boot of his car when he stopped off at a shop to get phone credit.Stephen Crerand (32) of Strath Aoibhinn, Stranorlar, admitted a charge of larceny among a series of offences when he appeared at Letterkenny District Court.Inspector Michael Harrison said Killygordon shop owner Barry Bradley reported the theft of the generator on September 7, 2012, saying the €400 item had never been recovered. He said Mr Bradley had reported it had been taken the evening before.Inspector Harrison said gardai had examined CCTV footage at the shop and identified Crerand and another man in the shop buying phone credit.They had left the shop and Crerand could be seen in the footage loading the generator into the boot of his car before he and the other man had driven off.He said Crerand was arrested on October 1, 2012, and had admitted his role in the theft.The defendant also admitted driving whilst disqualified in May 2012 in Castlefin and public order offences a few days later when he was asked to produce his license by gardai.Inspector Harrison said when Crerand’s Vauxhall car was seized he had been extremely threatening towards gardai.There was a similar incident on June 20, 2012; this time involving a green BMW.Judge Paul Kelly adjourned the case to allow for a community service report.MAN ADMITS THEFT OF GENERATOR FROM KILLYGORDON SHOP was last modified: April 19th, 2016 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:hoodKillygordonStephen Crerandthieflast_img read more

The HSE will no longer publicly give details on the condition of patients in their care.However we do know that four other people were also injured in the crash and that the little girl and adult are making a recovery.And one local source told us last night: “The whole parish has been praying and it now seems the girl has made some progress and is no longer on the critical list.“People from all over the county have been praying for all those hurt in the accident and it looks as though those prayers have been answered.” Gardai are continuing to investigate the accident.Garda forensics officers spent most of Monday at the scene of the crash at Rasheney.They are trying to establish the cause of the crash which happened between a jeep and a Volkswagen Passat.The location is less than four miles from last year’s horrific road crash which killed eight people on the Clonmany to Buncrana Road on July 12th.RELIEF AS CAR CRASH TODDLER TAKEN OFF CRITICAL LIST was last modified: May 20th, 2011 by gregShare 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)last_img read more

first_imgSinn Féin TD Pearse Doherty says the ongoing closure of the short stay ward at Letterkenny University Hospital is ‘absolute absurdity’.Donegal Sinn Fein this morning launched a campaign demanding the reopening of the 19-bed short stay ward at LUH.Deputy Doherty was joined by Senator Padraig MacLochlainn and local Sinn Féin councillors as they rolled out a petition and announced a cross-platform media campaign to re-open the ward. “It is a huge crisis and has been massive chaos having so many patients without a bed and having to sleep on a trolley,” Deputy Doherty said.“Over the last year, we have seen nearly 5,000 patients on trollies, in accident and emergency and right throughout this hospital.“During that time, we see a ward closed down. Last year, an average of 19 patients lay on trollies every day here and at the same time, mere metres away, we have 19  beds that have been laying empty. It is absolute absurdity.”Management at LUH have applied for €1.8million in funding which would fund the staff to reopen the short stay ward. Sean Murphy, the hospital’s General Manager, last year explained that the 19-bed ward closed due to the commissioning of two newly refurbished wards – the eight-bed coronary care unit and 11-bed haematology/oncology wards.Last year, LUH tabled a proposal to Saolta under the Critical Unmet Need and Winter Surge initiative to reopen the ward, but it remains shut.Deputy Doherty said: “We are calling on the Government to make the necessary investment of €1.8million that has been requested by the hospital management to make sure that these 19 beds are opened.“It would relieve the pressure on the accident and emergency ward, relieve the pressure on consultants and staff and enable them to treat the patients.“We have to make the demand to Government very clear. We want action and we want the short stay ward to open.” It is estimated that the short stay ward could be reopened within a month post-approval if the bid were successful.Senator Mac Lochlainn said: “It’s the sixth largest hospital in this state withy an average of 23,000 inpatients going through the hospital each year. It has been neglected over the years.“We demonstrated in a document last year the need to invest. The major hospitals in Dublin were receiving three or four times more funding than Letterkenny.“You can understand because they deal with more complex difficulties that there would be a difference – but three or four times more? That’s not acceptable. “This campaign is focussed on a very simple issue. We have 19 people on average on trollies – elderly, distressed people – and that isn’t what the staff or anyone here wants to see.”‘Absolute absurdity’ – Doherty blasts ongoing closure of 19-bed ward was last modified: July 3rd, 2018 by Chris McNultyShare 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:Letterkenny University HospitalluhPADRAIG MACLOCHLAINNPearse DohertySean Murphyshort stay wardSinn Feinlast_img read more
