Mino Raiola is no longer an obstacle for Madrid

first_imgThere are two players who depend on Raiola and who can be fundamental for Real Madrid’s short-term future. The first and most important is Haaland, The 19-year-old Norwegian forward has been uncovered at 19 after signing for Borussia and, at the moment, if he does not change his contract, It has a cancellation clause of 75 million euros from the winter market of 2020-21. The other is Pogba, this, more Zidane’s personal wish. United wants to renew him but the footballer prefers to change his air. A great opportunity. That Raiola’s relationship with Florentino Pérez is not the best possible is an open secret in the world of soccer. The president of Real Madrid is not in favor of negotiating methods, always tough and aggressive, of one of them now fashion representatives of Spanish football. Both collided, fundamentally, in the summer of 2016, just when Madrid was testing the signing of Pogba at Zidane’s request. Raiola’s high claims, who shot his commission, were one of the causes of the operation not being carried out. But the agent, as AS knew then, He was also very upset because he understood that the president of Madrid had not thrown the rest for his player … And it did not cover, Madrid, the salary claims of the midfielder. Today it is better that the relationship with Raiola flow. The representatives are gaining more and more strength in the world of soccer and the Italian agent is part of the shortlist that dominates the soccer business together with Barnett and JOrge Mendes. In addition to Pogba Y Haaland, Raiola leads players like Donnarumma, Balotelli, Ibrahimovic, Mkhytariam, Justin Kluivert, Irving Lozano, Manolas, Romagnoli, Insigne or Verratti.center_img But four years have passed and, as the saying goes, Mr money is a powerful gentleman. The relationship between Florentino and Raiola remains tense, but at least the communication between the agent and Real Madrid yes it is fluid because between Raiola and José Ángel Sánchez the bond itself is extraordinary. “But that doesn’t mean they always agree.” A source very close to both tells this newspaper. Areola’s stay in the white squad, also represented by Raiola, has served, they tell us, also to improve that relationship.last_img read more

Gerrard not concerned with shadow cast by Celtic

first_img0Shares0000Rangers manager Steven Gerrard says he won’t obsess about Celtic © AFP / ANDY BUCHANANGLASGOW, United Kingdom, Jun 15 – New Rangers manager Steven Gerrard says he will not be preoccupied by Celtic as he concentrates on making Rangers a force to be reckoned with.“I think for me it is important not to be obsessed with Celtic. I have to sort Rangers out,” the former Liverpool and England skipper told Britain’s Press Association Sport as he oversaw the start of pre-season training. His priority is to get them fit for his debut Scottish Premiership campaign and he said that, and not closing last season’s 12-point gap to their Old Firm rivals, was his focus.“There are things we need to improve on and my focus is on Rangers,” said Gerrard, who will be up against former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, now in the Celtic hotseat, next season as he looks to alter the balance of power in Glasgow.Gerrard said the pair have already exchanged several messages but he said his duty was to focus on the league as a whole, not just the threat from Celtic Park.“There are some good teams in the league but for me I wouldn’t be doing my job properly if I was focusing on the other teams.”Rangers will start off at Aberdeen with Celtic their opposition in their fourth match of the campaign.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more


Mourinho demands apology over Costa treatment as he slams ‘criminal’ Barnes tackle

first_imgChelsea manager Jose Mourinho launched a lengthy attack on referees and media coverage of his team during an appearance on Sky Sports.The Blues boss refused to comment on his issues with officials following his side’s 1-1 draw with Premier League strugglers Burnley on Saturday, but was more forthcoming on the network’s Goals on Sunday show, where he branded Ashley Barnes’ tackle on Nemanja Matic as “criminal”.Matic was sent off for his reaction to Barnes’ tackle in the 70th minute at Stamford Bridge, but the Burnley player went remarkably unpunished despite a shocking challenge.But that wasn’t all Mourinho had to say to the broadcaster he had strongly criticised for their coverage of Diego Costa’s stamp on Liverpool’s Emre Can last month, when replays of the incident carried the caption ‘Costa’s crimes’.Costa was later handed a retrospective three-match ban, and, taking the opportunity to turn the tables, Mourinho used a question about Barnes’ tackle to repeat his complaint.“When I finished at the game against Liverpool, I went to the dressing room and the first thing I saw on the big screen, reading non-stop – ‘Diego Costa crimes’,” he said.“I would like to know how to you, Sky Sports, describe the actions of the Burnley player yesterday? My English is not good enough to find a word.“When you think ‘Diego crimes’ after he puts his boot on a hand, when this is ‘Diego crimes’, the minimum you have to say is ‘criminal tackle’.“Did you apologise to Chelsea, to Diego or myself? You didn’t. As an institution, Sky is so important in the Premier League, you never apologise.“When Diego Costa has a three-match ban, probably three matches to Matic… tell me how many matches this player deserves?”Mourinho was fined £25,000 by the Football Association in January for claiming there was a “campaign” in the media against Chelsea, but maintained his attack on coverage.“I don’t like the fact you start immediately, in that moment, the public judgement of the player,” he added with regard to the Costa coverage. “You gave no space to the people that have to decide, the pressure was so much.“You don’t do this with every club, with every player. Last year, Yaya Toure against Norwich, you didn’t have the same approach; [Robin] van Persie against West Ham, you didn’t have the same approach.“This one [on Saturday] was even worse. This can be end of career. Matic is a very lucky guy.” Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho 1last_img read more

Lakers notes: Jackson speaks out in favor of league’s dress code

first_img “The players have been dressing in prison garb the last five or six years,” Jackson said before Monday’s exhibition. “All the stuff that goes on, it’s like gangster, thuggery stuff. It’s time. It’s been time to do that. “But one must remember where one came from. I was wearing bib overalls when I was a player one time. But I wasn’t going to the games or events in them.’ Brown, the center of attention facing his former team, sank two free throws and Kobe Bryant stole the subsequent inbounds pass to clinch things. Brown finished with 19 points, seven rebounds and no incidents with Washington’s Gilbert Arenas (Grant High of Van Nuys). “There was no bad blood,” Brown said. “We just went out, played hard and competed.” Bryant had a game-high 28 points but missed his last five shots, nearly all of which were of the turnaround, fadeaway variety, and was questioned by Jackson about it afterward. The Wizards led by as many as nine points in the fourth quarter but kept their second team on the floor, led by former Lakers Caron Butler and Chucky Atkins. Forward Devean George provided some much-needed scoring off the bench for the Lakers, totaling 22 points and hitting 10 of 12 shots. Arenas (Grant High of Van Nuys) led the Wizards with 27 points. Also: The Lakers waived guard Will Conroy and learned that forward Corie Blount has a sprained left foot. Blount will be re-evaluated in a week and did not make the trip for Monday’s game.

Inactive players on the bench will have to wear sport coats. Players also can’t wear baseball caps or oversized jewelry when engaged in team-related activities. “To a majority of these young men,” Jackson said, “the rap stars, hip-hop guys are really kind of like heroes or colleagues . . . We even have some that are owners in the league. And it’s not the same audience. Our audience is corporate businessmen and businesswomen and kids.” Jackson acknowledged that enforcing the code will be difficult and there will be many fines issued. “It’s just too bad that we couldn’t do a better job at representing ourselves,” forward Lamar Odom said, “that they feel like they’ve got to enforce a dress code.” Working overtime: The Lakers took the good with the bad in a 111-108 overtime victory over the Washington Wizards at Rabobank Arena, appropriately ending with forward Kwame Brown securing a critical rebound with 1.9 seconds left. center_img BAKERSFIELD – On the issue of the NBA’s new dress code, which covers sport coats but not soul patches on the bench, Allen Iverson and Phil Jackson apparently are going to have to agree to disagree.

Don’t be judgmental.’ “She wanted us to understand other people’s feelings. She had compassion for humanity.” Guth primarily worked as a secretary-bookkeeper, managing the refrigeration and heating business owned by her first husband, Robert Gilliland.

She also loved watching the waves at the beach and traveling in her motor home in her later years. She often combined her passions when she and her husband vacationed at Rincon State Beach north of Ventura. Guth enjoyed collecting salt-and-pepper shakers and souvenir spoons from places she visited in the United States.

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: We are in week 3 of 2015.By now, the New Year’s resolutions are in full swing.Gyms will be buzzing with people who are fully committed to making this year the year they absolutely achieve their goals. It is also around the 3rd week of the year that the shine starts to come off of the good intentions that some people had for their goals.You will naturally have a bit of a fall off around this time and it increases every week until only the most dedicated are left.So why is it that only 8% of people who make resolutions are able to stick to them?We have to look at the way people are setting out goals for themselves. When you are setting out and making your goals, you can’t just concentrate on what you want.If you only concentrate on what you want, you might never actually get started.Your goal could seem too big.You could find reasons as to why you wouldn’t be able to achieve them and if you managed to achieve them, you might not be able to keep them, so it’s probably best not to even start.Sound familiar? So what can we do?What is it that we have to change in order to keep on track with our goals?We have to change the way we plan out our goals.We have to stop always looking at what we want and start setting out steps to help us actually get what we want. It is easy to say ‘I want to lose 10lbs’, but if all you do is say I want, and you never change anything in order to get there, nothing will change. 

Instead of saying I WANT, ask yourself;WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THIS? 

WHAT DO I HAVE TO CHANGE IN MY LIFE TO REACH MY GOAL?It doesn’t have to be major changes either.Andrea Bonior, Ph.D., a psychologist in private practice in Washington, DC, and author of the “Baggage Check” column for the Washington Post Express says;“Since your supply of self-control is finite, make resolutions that require small acts of will, not weeks of vigilance.”‘Lose 10 pounds’ sounds specific, but it’s less likely to work than behavioural goals like
’This week I’ll try to go to the gym three times, take the stairs at work at least twice, and bring a healthy lunch every day,’ “.“You’ll feel good when you accomplish each goal, and your success will help bolster your resolve: The better you are at making small changes, the easier it will be for you to keep going.”

Small steps like these are a great way to self-motivate and these small goals can help you reach your major ones.When choosing your goals, try not to pick too many.Doing this can quite often dilute your motivation and leave you goalless come February.“Once you understand that you have only a limited amount of willpower, it’s easy to understand why multiple resolutions aren’t likely to work”, says Ian Newby-Clark, Ph.D., a psychologist at the University of Guelph in Canada.Most resolutions actually require many behaviour changes. Sure, some are straightforward, like remembering to take a calcium pill every day — but a successful weight-loss program, for example, calls for more than just a decision to eat less.You have to shop and cook differently, start or ramp up an exercise routine, maybe even ditch certain social or family events. “Thinking through these sub strategies boosts success rates,” says Newby-Clark.”The last tip I’ll leave you with when trying to stick to your resolutions is this;Avoid making 100% resolutions.Don’t say to yourself that you are ‘giving up everything and that’s final.’Let’s face it it’s never going to work.Instead aim for 90%, this will allow for some leeway if you get stuck or caught out or end up at a family event.One meal never ruined anyone’s goals.
