Sacked Mourinho not planning a break

first_imgBy John O’BrienSacked Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will not be taking a sabbatical and remains proud of his two spells in charge at the west London club, a statement released by his sports management representatives said on Saturday.The 52-year-old Portuguese was fired by Chelsea just seven months after winning the Premier League title on Thursday following a dismal start to the campaign and a statement released by CAA Sports Management suggests he will be back in the dugout soon.“He will not be taking a sabbatical, he isn’t tired, he doesn’t need it, he is very positive, and is already looking forward,” the statement said.“Because of his love of football, you will see Jose at football grounds working and supporting friends. He will not be attending any high-profile games because he wants to discourage any speculation about his future.”Despite his dismissal, Mourinho was said to be happy about his decision to return to a club where he has won three Premier League titles over two spells in charge.“Jose Mourinho is pleased that he returned to Chelsea Football Club because he was able to give the fans another Premier League title, which they had not won for many years,” the statement continued.“He is immensely proud of his eight trophies at Chelsea (he also won one FA Cup, three League Cups and one Community Shield), and thanks the fans for all their support throughout his two spells at the club.“During his career, Jose has sometimes chosen to leave a club, but only at Chelsea has the club decided that he should leave.”The statement concluded that Mourinho would continue to live in London but had no plans to comment on his “current situation for the foreseeable future”.last_img read more

Federer calls medical timeout ‘precaution’; del Potro next

first_imgNEW YORK (AP): The only bit of trouble for Roger Federer in his fourth-round match at the US Open was when he felt the tightening of a muscle at the back of the top of his left leg. Federer asked for a medical timeout after the second set against No. 33 seed Philipp Kohlschreiber, briefly left the court in Arthur Ashe Stadium to get a quick massage from a trainer, and soon was right back at it, finishing off his 6-4, 6-2, 7-5 victory Monday night. “It was more precaution. It’s all good. No problems there,” said Federer, who did not face a break point. “I’m not worried about it.” The state of the 36-year-old Federer’s physical condition has been a talking point throughout the tournament, because he tweaked his back during a match in August, interrupting his preparation for Flushing Meadows. Federer said he was worried about his movement in his first-round match against 19-year-old American Frances Tiafoe, then had timing issues in his second-rounder against 35-year-old Russian Mikhail Youzhny and both of those contests went five sets. On the bright side, the 19-time major champion also spent some time drawing a crowd by hitting in Central Park and has put together two straight-set wins in a row against opponents in their 30s. “I went from Tiafoe, then to the oldies, so that was good,” Federer joked. “Yeah, back to the ’80s.” In the quarterfinals, he’ll face someone who turns 29 this month and whose presence does not conjure good memories for Federer at the US Open: Juan Martin del Potro. Five consecutive wins Federer is a combined 44-0 against the first four men he’s played, and he is 16-5 against del Potro. But one of those defeats came in five sets in the 2009 final at Flushing Meadows, when del Potro won his only Grand Slam title and ended Federer’s streak of five consecutive championships in New York. “Probably feels like one of those matches I would like to play over again. Feel like I would probably win it somehow,” Federer said. Del Potro has gone through plenty of health problems since then, including three operations on his left wrist that forced him to miss two years’ worth of Grand Slam tournaments until Wimbledon in 2016. That has had an effect on his two-handed backhand, to be sure, but the righty swing that produces massive forehands and serves is still intact as Federer himself noted at his news conference and on Twitter. That was clear as del Potro shook off the effects of a fever and erased two set points while coming back from a big deficit to eliminated No. 6 Dominic Thiem 1-6, 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (1), 6-4. When a reporter relayed to del Potro that Federer had spoken glowingly about him, del Potro responded: “Well, of course, I admire him, too. Everybody loves him.”last_img read more

Fuel Theft At EU Compound

first_imgFour persons, including three private security guards held in connection with the disappearance of 55 gallons of diesel fuel worth US$569 from the Mamba Point Compound of the European Union (EU), were yesterday sent to the Monrovia Central Prison to await prosecution.At yesterday’s hearing, the Monrovia City Court at the Temple of Justice was compelled to send the defendants back to jail where they have been since they were arrested on July 6 after their lawyers failed to secure a bond for their temporary release while they awaited trial.Defendants George Flomo of APEX Security Service, Francis Ndebeh of the Trust Guard Service, Tom Yarkpazuo of INSECOM Security Guards, and Jerry Kpoklah, generator operator at the EU compound, were charged with theft of property, criminal conspiracy and facilitation.The three guards were arrested after one of the defendants, Kpoklah implicated them.According to their charge sheet, Kpoklah was caught while reportedly stealing the fuel on the night of July 1 by another security officer from the Trust Guard Service, identified as Dopolous Tamba,.Police quoted an executive of the European Union, who was only identified as “EU delegation” in the court document who said, “We have been experiencing fuel theft for a very long time even before this one and in order to avoid any recurrence of similar incidents we have to take this action.”The court record further quoted the EU delegation as saying that “during a meeting with the defendant on July 6, Kpoklah admitted that he was caught with the stolen fuel, but accused other people from the security services assigned at the compound of being connected to the deal,” adding, “he openly apologized for his action and said the act was an organized crime which involved a few personnel at the EU compound.”According to police Dopolous Tamba, the guard who apprehended defendant Kpoklah claimed that at about 2 a.m. on July 1, he decided to patrol the compound including the generator room. He said when he visited the generator room during the routine patrol he observed that fuel oil was wasting all around.Tamba contended that he raised suspicion and decided to call defendant Ndebeh and the other guard, who is now on the run. Unfortunately, he alleged, they did not say anything.“I later extended my patrol and it was while on my routine beat around the compound that I saw 13 containers of various sizes filled with diesel fuel and I saw the generator operator, Kpoklah, standing without a shirt near the containers smelling with fuel,” Tamba further alleged.He said when they tried to arrest defendant Kpoklah, he escaped but was later picked up by officers of the Liberian National Police (LNP).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

ExxonMobil donates $10M to Guyana’s hurricane relief efforts

first_imgSupport from corporate Guyana continues to swell, with oil giant ExxonMobil stepping up with a donation to the country’s hurricane relief efforts for its Caribbean neighbours that were devastated by the storms in recent months.At the handing over Tuesday morning, President David Granger said that the Government of Guyana welcomed the million donation from ExxonMobil and its partners, Hess and CNOOC Nexen, which he said would go a long way in helping the affected countries and their citizens to recover from the devastation experienced during the current hurricane season, which ends on November 30.The donation was handed over to Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, who holds responsibility for the Civil Defence Commission (CDC), just before the start of this week’s Cabinet meeting at the Ministry of the Presidency.ExxonMobil Guyana officials Carlton James and Kimberly Johnson-Brasington look on as Country Manager Rod Henson hands over the $10 million cheque to Minister of State, Joseph Harmon and CDC Director General, Colonel (retired) Chabilall Ramsarup. Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman also witnessed the presentation at the Ministry of the Presidency on Tuesday morningMinister Harmon, in brief remarks after receiving the cheque, expressed appreciation on behalf of Government to all members of the Private Sector, including ExxonMobil, that have made resources available to the CDC to support the relief efforts.“On behalf of the CDC and the Government of Guyana, we would like to thank ExxonMobil for giving so generously and contributing to the disaster relief efforts of the Civil Defence Commission. We are all aware of the damage, which was done by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, and we believe that this is an excellent demonstration of your social corporate responsibility and corporate consciousness that you have come forward without even prodding to give this generous donation,” he said.Meanwhile, ExxonMobil Guyana’s Country Manager, Rod Henson, said that the company considered its community relationships an essential element of its business and added that in times of crisis, it is important that resources are combined.“We have worked with the CDC before. They do a fantastic job and so we are happy to help in this effort, [which will go a long way in helping thousands of persons who have been left affected by the hurricanes],” he noted.Additionally, Senior Director, Public and Government Affairs at ExxonMobil Guyana, Kimberly Brasington added that the United States-based oil giant remained supportive of efforts, which could improve the lives of persons, particularly those who have been left in vulnerable positions.“We are committed to providing support and assistance for disaster relief and recovery efforts to affected Guyanese. We want to do our part to help ensure storm victims have the support to recover and rebuild,” she said.CDC Director General, Colonel (retired) Chabilall Ramsarup was also present for the handing over of the cheque.Earlier this year, the company supported the CDC’s work in post-flood relief and recovery efforts in Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) and Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni) to the tune of $5 million.The more recent contribution is made in support of the Natural Resources Ministry in line with the company’s and their partners’ commitment to a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programme, from which the funds are being allocated.Tuesday’s donation from ExxonMobil brings the total donation from corporate Guyana to the cause to $25 million.The effort will be further boosted by a Hurricane Relief Concert, which will be held this Saturday at D’Urban Park. The concert will feature a line-up of popular Trinidadian artistes, including Patrice Roberts, Ola Tungi, and Orlando Octave alongside several of Guyana’s best performers.last_img read more

Liverpool transfer news: Attacker arrives at Anfield! ‘Best business Brendan has done!’

first_imgLiverpool have recalled 19-year-old attacker Jordan Ibe from his successful loan spell at Derby County, prompting excited tweets from Kopites around the world.He joined the Rams last August and netted five goals in 20 games to help lift Steve McClaren’s side into second in the Championship table.Now Ibe has a chance to impress Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and potentially force his way into the first team at Anfield.In the absence of Daniel Sturridge, and since the sale of Luis Suarez, Liverpool have struggled to recapture the attacking verve that took them to the brink of the title in 2014.But there have been signs of improvement in recent weeks, as new signings like Adam Lallana and Lazar Markovic have found their feet.Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert have yet to find their form, though, leading to the possibility that Ibe could jump the queue in Liverpool’s pecking order.Here’s what Liverpool fans had to say about his return… 1 Jordan Ibe last_img read more

MICHAEL PUTS THE ‘FREEZE’ ON A WHITE WINTER AND ARCTIC-LIKE CONDITIONS

first_imgIreland’s most famous amateur weatherman has said there is ‘SNOW WAY’ Donegal is going to be plunged into artic-like conditions this winter.Postman Michael Gallagher has successfully predicted snowfalls for the last number of years from his base in the hills of Donegal.But Michael, from Glenfin, says he simply can’t understand why everyone is saying the country is going to be covered in snow and freezing conditions for months on end. “I simply don’t know where these forecasts are coming form. I can see no signs of it.“We might have a little snow but I don’t think it’s going to be as bad as the past couple of years.“I can see us getting plenty of rain and frost but I can’t see the huge falls of snow and freezing temperatures which everyone seems to be predicting,” he said.Michael, who famously forced bookmaker Paddy Power to pay out €70,000 in early bets after predicting a white Christmas two years ago, says there will be plenty of storms. Only recently he was approached by a customer while doing his rounds who had found a frog behind a flowerpot.“When we lifted the flowerpot the frog just wouldn’t move. I just knew that was a bad sign.“A couple of days later we had those bad storms. The frog knew it was going to be bad and didn’t plan on moving anywhere,” said Michael.Apart from Michael, another hugely-respected weatherman who does not think we are going to shiver too much this winter is Peter O’Donnell from www.irishweatheronline.com.He said January next could be the coldest month but it is unlikely to be as bad as last year. “In general, this is not expected to be as dramatic as last year, and the severe cold is not expected to continue through most of December.“There may be roughly equal spells of mild and cold weather with strong winds, some heavy rainfalls and some snow or ice.”REAL NEWS – REAL PEOPLEDONEGALDAILY.COM – DONEGAL’S BIGGEST NEWS WEBSITE ADVERTISE FOR JUST €3..click www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comMICHAEL PUTS THE ‘FREEZE’ ON A WHITE WINTER AND ARCTIC-LIKE CONDITIONS was last modified: October 20th, 2011 by StephenShare 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:CHristmasforecastMichael Gallaghersnowweathermanlast_img read more
