first_img5 Daniel Levy has taken a huge gamble replacing Mauricio Pochettino with Jose MourinhoCredit: Getty – Contributor5 Spurs supremo Daniel Levy surprised many with his axing of Mauricio Pochettino and immediate appointment of Jose MourinhoCredit: Getty – Contributor“Maybe to have a manager with my experience is also part of the vision.“But if we win a title, it doesn’t matter during my period it will not be because of myself. It is just the natural consequence of a vision and a plan.“That is why I have to speak about Mauricio, to congratulate him for the work and say this club will always be his home, this training ground will always be his training ground. The door is always open for him.”There was a freshness and vitality about the latest incarnation of Mourinho.Without, for now, the brashness, the arrogant bravado he wore as a badge of honour when he arrived, ready to slay all the dragons — real and perceived — he saw ranged against him at Chelsea.’HUGE PILLOWS’But unlike in his second spell at Stamford Bridge from 2013, when even his claims of “happiness” seemed an effort to convince himself, more than a true reality, with that same, long-discarded, lightness of touch.After spending 2½ years in The Lowry Hotel in Manchester, there was a joke about the comforts of the “six-star” luxury of the Lodge built at Hotspur Way, where he and his coaching staff were billeted overnight.“Huge pillows” but not, this time, the same huge ego.Instead, a man who claimed to have come to terms with himself, able to recognise how and why it had gone so wrong at Manchester United.He added: “I believe I am better. I have to believe so, to show these 11 months were not a waste of time.“I have learned to think about many things, to prepare and anticipate. So I am humble, humble enough to try to analyse my career, Manchester, the problems and the solutions.5 Ex-Chelsea chief Jose Mourinho feels he will learn from his struggle at Man UtdCredit: Getty – Contributor“From an emotional point of view I’m relaxed, I’m motivated, I’m ready to support the players.“This is not about me. In your career, your life, you go through moments and periods and I am in a period where it’s not about myself at all.“It’s about my club, my club’s fans, my players, it’s not about me. I’m just here to try to help everyone.“You never lose your DNA, you never lose your identity, what you are.“Don’t ask me what are the mistakes but I realise I made them. I am not going to make the same mistakes, I am going to make new mistakes.”Humility and Mourinho have rarely been seen in the same room, of course, which led to an obvious question, dealt with in the same way.most read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticMourinho smiled, not for the first time and said: “No. I was always humble.“The problem is that you did not understand that.

Basking in the acclamation of a crowded media theatre at Tottenham’s high-tech Enfield training complex, the TV cameras filling every crevice of the room as the world’s media played a version of sardines for grown-ups.Jose Mourinho, where he loves to be. At the centre of everything.Smiling for real, not for show.Mourinho knows the Spurs fans still need to be convinced he is the right man for the job.Many harbour doubts over what his football is all about.Others will contend that sacking Mauricio Pochettino was the most heartless act the club has ever made.Yet if Mourinho wanted to go out of his way to reassure the supporters he has changed, for the better, he could hardly have poured on the charm more readily.’A PACKAGE AND A VISION’A man whose previous arrivals have always been about throwing a great big bucket of dung over his predecessors went out of his way to praise Pochettino as his first act.Indeed, suggested the Portuguese, if he does realise Tottenham’s hopes and dreams, he will be merely the captain who completed the journey, not the helmsman who deserves credit for the crossing.Laying it on thick — chairman Daniel Levy would have been smiling too — Mourinho said: “If we win titles it will not be the consequence of me but the consequence of the club’s work.“This is a package and a vision. Everything starts with a vision.“The stadium is part of the vision. The training ground is part of the vision. The academy is part of the vision.“To try to keep all the best players and refuse to let the best players to go away is part of the vision too.last_img read more

first_imgAnd, in that sense, in what situation is Levante?In the end, I will be in Levante for two years. We all hoped that there would be one and this is my second year. I think we are in the same situation as last summer. The reality is that I will no longer belong to Levante, but there are options. As you all know and I always say, I am happy here, in Valencia and with the club in general for how they have behaved with me from the first moment. It was not easy for me to be here and it has been two years in a row that I have been. Of course there are options to follow, but the reality is that it is not only up to me. When I return to Real Madrid I only have one year left on my contract and not like in previous seasons.They will request an important transfer despite subtracting a year from his contract.Well I do not know. I don’t know, really, hopefully. That would be a good sign for me. I am young, I know I have a lot of potential to give yet. In the end if a player has a high cost it is because he is good and because they love him. But in the end it is as I have told you before, it not only depends on me, it also depends on Real Madrid and what you want to do with me. Then we’ll see what happens.Would you like to continue in Orriols?I don’t think much about the future. I plan to end the season well, individually and collectively, and when I arrive, Real Madrid, my representative, my family and I will sit down to make a decision. But, well, it is not only up to me because in the end I belong to Real Madrid.Changing the subject, what is certain is that he runs out of the Olympic Games. One of his dreams. At least this year … Do you trust them to respect your generation?You could see that they were going to be suspended for everything that is dragging on this. Yes, it is true that I recently read an article that said that I hope they can respect the generation of ’97 who, as you have said, have been champions of the European Under-19 and Under-21 championships last summer. The truth that these Games make us very excited. I personally would love to participate in an Olympic Games, which is the closest thing to a World Cup and always representing your country in these events is special. Let’s see what happens. Hopefully they respect the ages because I think it would be a little unfair. In the end we were the ones who qualified and those who could play these Games. In the end they are going to play next year and I don’t know if they will respect the age of the generation of 97. I hope so.Finally, what do you think of the campaign to collect funds for toilets that have been launched from the Granota club?Well, it is the campaign that we have launched to help buy medical supplies and also to help the homes that take care of our elders. From there we can help a lot and when the president and the captains contacted us, we did not hesitate to contribute our grain of sand. Whenever we can we help and this is the campaign that we have launched from the club. Borja Foreman He is aware that this summer will mark a before and after in his career. With just one more year of contract in the Real Madrid, understands that “this summer a different decision will be made regarding me.” At the moment, the white team has not contacted him to renew. Meanwhile, the I raised awaits your opportunity. The Parla forward analyzes his future for AS.From the protagonist’s point of view, does an interview change much in these circumstances?No, not really. It’s different, but I don’t care if I do it over the phone or in person, really.How is confinement happening?Well, they are different days. But I also take the opportunity to do things that I did not do before, such as practicing yoga. I watch many series with my girlfriend and I try to take advantage of the time to talk a lot with mine, with my family and my friends. In short, I try to take advantage of time.I understand that you are especially concerned about what is happening in Madrid.Yes, there is some concern. Because in the end I have many friends and my whole family is from there. I am constantly in contact with them to ask how they are, also with my grandparents, who we know are risk factors, and I try to speak with them almost every day.Has Real Madrid contacted you these days?No, you have not contacted me.I imagine they would breathe when they all tested negative for the coronavirus.Yes, because in the end everything we read and heard from all the people who were infected … We were tested and thank God we all tested negative.Now that you have so much time to think, have you reflected on your future?No, I try to focus on the present. There are still matches and hopefully the competition will resume. Now I think about finishing LaLiga in the best possible way. Then there will be time to think about the following.The reality is that it faces a key summer: with a contract until 2021 and already, it seems, a definitive sale. How do you live it?All right. In the best way. In the end I am calm because I have one year left with Real Madrid, until 2021. They have been at Levante for two years and it is true that this summer I think a different decision will be made regarding me. But, as I say, I face it in the best possible way, with all the illusion. What comes will come. I really am happy, happy and above all calm, which is what is important.Has Real Madrid transferred interest to you to renew your contract?No, I personally have not been contacted. That is taken more by my representative, but I think they have not contacted. I also think that when this happens everything will return to normal and there will be more conversations for my future. Now the important thing is that all this happens, that LaLiga ends in the best way and then we will see.last_img read more

first_imgPORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):Reigning champions Trinidad and Tobago Red Force stormed into the final of the Regional Super50 when they produced a clinical bowling performance to whip Guyana Jaguars by 54 runs in the semi-final here Wednesday night.In a repeat of last year’s final, Red Force raised a competitive 259 for nine off their 50 overs and then used their spin attack on a turning Queen’s Park Oval track, to bundle out Jaguars for a disappointing 205 off 48.3 overs.Left-hander Darren Bravo missed out on a sixth regional one-day hundred when he fell for 95 while West Indies teammate Denesh Ramdin weighed in with an attacking 43 off 44 balls and Kjorn Ottley, a well-played 33 off 62 deliveries.Left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul was the leading bowler with three for 56 while off-spinner Steven Jacobs (2-12) and seamer Paul Wintz (2-67) picked up two wickets apiece.In reply, Jaguars suffered from a sluggish start before losing wickets steadily as the Red Force spinners crippled the innings.Wicketkeeper Anthony Bramble resisted with a cameo 51 while Paul Wintz struck 26. Chris Barnwell got 22 and captain Leon Johnson and opener Vishaul Singh both scored 20.The damage was done by Jon-Russ Jaggesar who claimed three for 36 while fellow off-spinner Narsingh Deonarine (2-35) and left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein (2-42) picked up two wickets apiece.Red Force will now await the winners of last night’s second semi-final between Barbados Pride and Windward Islands Volcanoes, to know their opponents in tomorrow’s final.last_img read more

first_imgDear Editor,I have been a very regular visitor to your country, in excess of 30 years; and have had truly wonderful times experiencing all aspects of this land: people, flora and fauna.But all is never perfect. On three occasions within the last 14 years, I have witnessed instances in which Policemen, representing the state, demanded bribes from registered taxi drivers, all for spurious misdemeanours.One that really raised my ire occurred on May 8th, during a 5-minute drive before Parika Stelling. The officer (name and regulation number stated), without any densitometer or other means of verification, deemed the car in which I was a passenger as having a tinted glass that was not legally acceptable. He then instructed the driver to meet him at Lance Bar in Parika, where the issue would be resolved.We did, in fact, wait at the stated bar, but left to return to Georgetown 25 minutes after. This officer was still on duty, proudly dressed in national wear.This man, and others like him, are a national disgrace and should be penalised immediately. An example needs to be made of his type. Enough is enough.Yours truly,Concerned commuterlast_img read more

first_imgThe Huskies perfect season continues after an exciting 4-3 victory over Dawson Creek.Luke McInerney scored the game winning goal with 57 seconds remaining to win the game in dramatic fashion for the pups. The Huskies started out fast and it was their new acquisition, Jackson Glass, who made his presence felt early. He scored the first goal on the power play just over a minute into the first toigive the Huskies a 1-0 lead. Dawson Creek responded quickly to knot the game 1-1 and that is how things stood leaing into the first intermission. Kole Norris scored the second goal for the Huskies in the second, but once again Dawson Creek responded with a quick goal to tie the game 2-2. The Huskies managed to pull ahead 3-2 shortly before the end of the period on a beautiful goal by Robbie Sidhu.- Advertisement -Dawson Creek once again responded to match the pups 3-3 midway through the third. The game was very physical with the Huskies laying a lot of big hits on the Jr. Canucks. It looked like the game might be headed to overtime, until McInerney scored the game winner on a goal that Dawson Creek goalie Tyson York certainly wishes he could have back. Ty Gullickson made a key save late in the game to preserve the lead and the pups walked away for the victory. Gullickson was named player of the game for the Huskies and had a very solid night between the pipes. Next up for the Huskies is back to back games against Whitecourt. Game starts at 8pm on Saturday and 2pm on Sunday. Head down to North Peace Arena to cheer on the Huskies.last_img read more

first_imgThe Santa Fe High School senior fought back from a disappointing loss on Friday to score a fourth-place finish on Saturday at the CIF State Wrestling Championships at Rabobank Arena. The heavyweight, who was 6-2 for the weekend, was joined on the medal stand by teammate Marcus Orona, who placed fifth at 119 pounds, and Schurr’s Julian Zuniga, seventh at 215. “I just know how to battle back,” said Romero, who was 3-1 on Saturday with wins over Bakersfield Buchanan’s Austin Garza, Vista’s Kasey Cowan and Rosemead’s Anthony Gonzalez. “Everyone else (when they lose here), they just give up. I know not to give up, because there’s too much to lose. I don’t want to live life with a regret. “It’s pretty tough to battle back, but I’ve been doing it all year. I know losing is just a learning experience.” It wasn’t an easy road for Romero, who had to battle in all of his four matches on Saturday. He held on to beat Garza 3-2 in the morning, then advanced to the third-place semifinals with another 3-2 win over Cowan before winning by fall over Gonzalez, who was coming off a class title at last weekend’s CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet. • Audio: Lenny Romero – Santa Fe HS BAKERSFIELD – Lenny Romero could have pouted. He instead turned a negative into a positive. center_img “(Romero) came back a long way,” Santa Fe coach Sal Garcia said. “He lost to a good guy (Clovis’ Jonathen Zamora) on Friday. He had the option to give up, or battle back. And he battled back. He wrestled really well.” Romero’s string of wins ended with a loss to Hesperia’s Ryan Hoover, who overcame an early lead to score a fall over Romero late in the third-place match. “It feels good (to place fourth),” Romero said. “I just wish I could have given (Hoover) a better match. “But Ryan Hoover’s tough. He should have been in the finals, but because of the luck of the draw, he didn’t. He’s a tough kid. I just tried to go out there and do something, but he got me.” Orona began the day with a quest to become Santa Fe’s first state champion since Angel Wong in 2002. But he lost by fall to top-ranked Nikko Triggas in the semifinals. Orona then dropped a tough 6-1 decision to Silver Creek’s Andre Gonzalez in the third-place semifinals before scoring a 5-2 win over Poway’s Mike Hernandez in the fifth-place match. “It feels good to place (here) for the first time” said Orona, whose fifth-place finish followed individual titles at the CIF-SS divisional and Masters meets. “I had some tough losses. I wish I could have done better, but finishing fifth is a pretty good accomplishment.” The odds were stacked against Orona in the semifinals against Campolindo’s Triggas, who is ranked No. 1 in the country after winning at 112 last season. Orona fought back from a 3-0 deficit in the first period to make it 3-2 early in the second with a takedown. But Triggas quickly responded with a reversal and pinned Orona at 3:49. “He’s the No. 1 wrestler in the nation,” Garcia said of Triggas. “What are you going to do? Marcus just went out there and wrestled. He took him down and gave what he had.” Orona then followed up his loss to Gonzalez in the third-place semifinals with a solid performance in the fifth-place match. He used a takedown to take a 2-0 lead in the first period before earning the win with another takedown late in the match to win 5-2. “Marcus is one of the better wrestlers in the state,” Garcia said. “It’s a great honor to have him on the team and for next year as well.” Zuniga also battled back from a tough loss to score a seventh-place finish. He went 2-1 on Saturday. He beat Oak Grove’s Davonte Carr in the consolation fifth round but then dropped a 9-2 decision to Sultana’s Zac Sweeney in the third-place quarterfinals before winning by fall over Oxnard Pacifica’s John Hernandez. Hernandez, who beat Zuniga at last weekend’s Masters meet, took an early 2-0 lead following a takedown with 36 seconds left in the first period. But Zuniga, armed with some valuable experience from last weekend’s loss to Hernandez, countered with an escape early in the second before pinning him just 10 seconds into the second period. “He took me out at Masters, so I was determined to beat him,” Zuniga said. “It was a tough match. He’s strong and powerful. I knew I had to be patient with him. “I wasn’t patient the first time I wrestled him. I just looked for my shot and I got it.” Santa Fe, with Romero and Orona, also had two wrestlers place at the state for the first time since 2000, when Zeke Trevino (112) and Ricky Garcia (130) finished among the top eight. “This is one of the best finishes for us in a while,” said Garcia, whose team finished among the top 20 teams with 39 points. “To have two individuals place is huge. It’s a big accomplishment.” steve.ramirez@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3061 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgTEHRAN, Iran – Vladimir Putin issued a veiled warning Tuesday against any attack on Iran as he began the first visit by a Kremlin leader to Tehran in six decades – a mission reflecting Russian-Iranian efforts to curb U.S. influence. The Russian president also suggested Moscow and Tehran should have a veto on Western plans for new pipelines to carry oil and natural gas from the Caspian Sea, using routes that would bypass Russian soil and break the Kremlin’s monopoly on energy deliveries from the region. Putin came to Tehran for a summit of the five nations bordering the Caspian, but his visit was aimed more at strengthening efforts to blunt U.S. economic and military ties in the area. Yet he also refused to set a date for completing Iran’s first nuclear reactor, trying to avoid an outright show of support for Iran’s defiance over its nuclear program. Putin strongly warned outside powers against use of force in the region, a clear reference to the United States, which many in Iran fear will attack over the West’s suspicions that the Iranians are secretly trying to develop nuclear weapons. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made similar comments. “We are saying that no (Caspian) nations should offer their territory to outside powers for aggression or any military action against any of the Caspian states,” Putin said. The five national leaders at the summit later signed a declaration that included a similar statement – an apparent reflection of Iranian fears that the United States could use Azerbaijan’s territory as a staging ground for military strikes in Iran. Putin has warned against such attacks previously, but reiterating them in Tehran gave them greater resonance – particularly at a summit for a region where Moscow deeply resents U.S. and European attempts at greater influence. The Russian leader also used the occasion to make a nod to Iran’s national pride – describing it as a “world power” and referring to the might of the ancient Persian empire. In Iran’s confrontation with the West, Russia has tread a fine line, warning against heavy pressure on Iran and protecting it – for now – from a third round of U.N. sanctions, while urging Tehran to heed the Security Council’s demand that it halt uranium enrichment. Putin’s careful stance on completing the Russian-built Bushehr nuclear power plant in Iran suggested the Kremlin is seeking to preserve solid ties with Tehran without angering the West. “Russia is trying to sit in two chairs at the same time,” Fyodor Lukyanov, editor of Russia in Global Affairs magazine, told The Associated Press. A pledge to quickly complete the plant would send a “strong signal to the West that Russia is with Iran,” he said. Putin showed he wouldn’t be pressed into speeding up completion of the $1 billion contract to build Bushehr. “I only gave promises to my mom when I was a small boy,” he snapped when Iranian reporters prodded him to promise a quick launch. At the same time, Putin – on the first trip to Iran by a Kremlin leader since Josef Stalin visited in 1943 for talks with Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt during World War II – said Moscow wouldn’t back down on its obligation to finish the plant. “Russia has clearly stated that it’s going to complete this work,” Putin said. “We are not renouncing this obligation.” Russia has warned that the Bushehr plant would not go on line this fall as originally planned, saying Iran was slow in making payments. Iranian officials have angrily denied being behind in its payments and accuse the Kremlin of caving in to Western pressure. Moscow also has ignored Iranian demands to ship nuclear reactor fuel for the plant, saying it would be delivered only six months before the Bushehr plant begins operation. The launch date has been delayed indefinitely amid the payment dispute. Putin said the two sides were negotiating revisions to the Bushehr contract, and once agreed a decision on fuel can be made. The Caspian leaders offered a degree of support for the Iranian nuclear program, stressing in their joint statement that any country like Iran which has signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty has the right to “carry out research and can use nuclear energy for peaceful means without discrimination.” Putin underlined his disagreements with Washington on Iran last week, saying he had seen no “objective data” showing Tehran is trying to construct nuclear weapons. Iran says it need enriched uranium to fuel nuclear reactors that will generate electricity. The main issue before the summit was the Caspian Sea itself. Divvying up territory in and around the inland sea – believed to contain the world’s third-largest reserves of oil and natural gas – has been a divisive issue among the five nations, and the leaders showed no signs of progress toward resolving the dispute. The Caspian’s offshore borders have been in limbo since the 1991 Soviet collapse. The lack of agreement has led to tensions and conflicts over oil deposits, but Putin and Ahmadinejad strongly warned outside powers to stay away from the region. “All issues related to the Caspian should be settled exclusively by littoral nations,” Ahmadinejad said. Moscow strongly opposes U.S.- and European-backed efforts to build pipelines to deliver Central Asian and Caspian oil and gas to the West by bypassing Russia, through which all the region’s pipelines now flow. Russia has pushed for new pipelines to cross its territory as well. Putin argued that all pipeline projects in the region should require the approval by all five Caspian nations to take effect, a view that would give each capital a veto. “Projects which may inflict a serious damage to the Caspian environment can’t be and mustn’t be implemented without a preliminary discussion by the Caspian five and making a consensus decision in the interests of our common sea,” Putin said. But the idea was barely mentioned in comments by the leaders of the former Soviet republics of Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, which are striving to balance their relations with Russia, the West and Asia. In Baku, Azerbaijan’s capital, political analyst Ilgar Mamedov said the veto idea was only “Putin’s opinion.” Caspian nations “are independent and act in accordance with their own interests,” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
