‘Superstar’ Sanchez the right fit for ManUtd, says Giggs

first_imgThe 29-year-old Chile striker, who came close to joining Manchester City last summer, has signed what is believed to be a four-and-a-half-year contract that will make him the highest-paid player in the Premier League.It has been widely reported that Sanchez will earn a pre-tax salary of £500,000 ($697,000, 569,000 euros) a week at Old Trafford.“Manchester United signing Alexis Sanchez is similar to Robin van Persie in the sense that they’re getting a ready-made superstar and you’re seeing the contribution already with Anthony Martial upping his performances,” new Wales manager Giggs said on skysports.com.“That can happen when top players come in, those around them lift their levels, and there will be some difficult selection decisions for Jose Mourinho.“However, Sanchez can also play on the right, as he did at Barcelona, so if Martial is flying then he may have to play in a different position, but those sort of decisions are positive for a manager to have to make.”– Attacking riches –United boss Mourinho said Sanchez would “complete our very young and talented group of attacking players” alongside the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, in-form Jesse Lingard and Martial, who has scored three goals in his past three Premier League games.Giggs, United’s most-decorated player, said it was an extra bonus that the former Arsenal man would be able to play in the Champions League — United play Sevilla in the first leg of their last-16 tie on February 21.“To have somebody like that, who won’t be fazed by playing in the big games, makes the squad look really strong,” he wrote.United, who have not won the Premier League title since 2013, are second in the table but trail Manchester City by 12 points — a gap that looks impossible to breach even with four months of the season to run.Sanchez took a parting shot in an Instagram post at ex-Arsenal players who have criticised his attitude.“There are people (former club players) who have spoken with no knowledge of what happens inside the club and cause damage,” Sanchez wrote.“I must say I always gave 100%, until the last day, when I asked to the Mister (Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger) to be in the team, because I wanted to be a contribution.”Armenia international winger Mkhitaryan, also 29, fell out of favour with United manager Mourinho after just 18 months at Old Trafford.The Sanchez-Mkhitaryan deal is the latest move of a busy January transfer window during which Liverpool sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for 160 million euros and signed central defender Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton for £75 million.Reports in Germany say striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be on his way to Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Alexis Sanchez will reportedly earn a pre-tax salary of £500,000 ($697,000, 569,000 euros) a week at Old Trafford © AFP/File / Alexander NEMENOVLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 23 – Ryan Giggs says Alexis Sanchez is a ready-made “superstar” who can give Manchester United a lift as they bid to chase down Premier League rivals Manchester City.Sanchez on Monday sealed a move to United from Arsenal in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, saying he was “thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world”.last_img read more

AFCON snub has motivated me, says Jesse

first_img0Shares0000Harambee Stars forward Jesse Were during a training session at the Kasarani Stadium on September 5, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 5 – Zesco United forward Jesse Were was one of the major exclusions when immediate former Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne named his squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.Were, banging goals left right and centre in Zambia with Zesco was overlooked despite his form, and never made it even to the initial list of 35 called up to start training in Nairobi before the team eventually travelled for a camp in France. Though he is diplomatic about just how much hurt that snub stung in his heart, Were says it motivated him to work harder and ensure a return to the team.“Of course I felt bad missing out because it is everyone’s dream to play at the AFCON with their country but again, I am happy that those who were selected experienced it. The coach had his decisions to make and we have a huge squad. He went with the team he felt was the best at the moment and there are no hard feelings for me,” Were said after the team’s training session on Thursday.Harambee Stars forward Jesse Were chats with head coach Francis Kimanzi during a training session at the Kasarani Stadium on September 5, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNow back in the team after new boss Francis Kimanzi recalled him, Were hopes he can prove his doubters wrong and make a mark for the national team.“I feel privileged to be back here. Missing out on the AFCON was a huge motivator for me because I always worked hard wanting to win my place back in the team. Now that I am here, I want to give my best and help the country in whatever way I can be it scoring or assisting,” he notes.Despite making a return to the team, Were might not play part in Sunday’s friendly match against Uganda Cranes in Nairobi after picking up a hamstring strain during last weekend’s Zambian league opener for his Zesco side against Zanaco.“I have been working with the physios to see if I can be able to be fit for Sunday. We will look at the next two days and see how it feels,” Were noted.Harambee Stars forward Jesse Were sat out of the training session at the Kasarani Stadium on September 5, 2019 due to injury. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluCoach Kimanzi said they had already sent out an invite to the forward before he got the injury and they asked him to travel so that the national team medical team can also assess him and help him a bit with the recovery process.Were is yet to score for the national team but he says he is optimistic he will break that duck soon with his eyes pegged on the qualifiers for the 2021 Cup of Nations where he hopes he can guide Kenya and make his first ever appearance at the continental championship.“I believe if we work hard and do our bit, then we can achieve that target. All teams in our group are beatable,” Were noted.0Shares0000(Visited 38 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Roberto Martinez laments poor Everton defending as Toffees crash out of Europa League

first_img1 Everton manager Roberto Martinez bemoaned his sides poor defending, but was keen to point to Dynamo Kiev’s “incredible finishing” after Everton bowed out of the Europa League at the hands of the Ukrainians.The Toffees couldn’t contain the ruthless Kiev attack, going down 5-2 on the night and 6-4 on aggregate to end the Premier League’s representation in European competition this season.Goals from Andriy Yarmolenko, Lukasz Teodorczyk, Miguel Veloso, Oleg Gusev and Vitorino Antunes sent the hosts through to the quarter-finals, with Romelu Lukaku and Phil Jagielka’s strikes merely consolations.“I think it is a case of the whole team not defending well enough,” said Martinez.“The defence have been very strong in the last two games and I felt the communication and experience between them would be important today.”The Spaniard was quick to acknowledge the quality of some of Kiev’s goals, particularly either side of half time from Yarmolenko and Antunes, and declared it was rare to see strikes of that standard in the same game.The 41-year-old said: “A couple of times we made some defensive mistakes, but there was also some incredible finishing. I think we have to highlight the quality of the finishing of the opposition.“With some of the goals, it would be very difficult to see them again in the same game. Everything Dynamo tried ended up the back of the net. It became very difficult, but we never gave up.” Roberto Martinez last_img read more

Prepare for holidays, vacations in advance

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEW YORK – Small-business owners are starting to deal with an annual headache: Everyone wants the day after Thanksgiving off. And the week after Christmas. Any owner who’s suffering through the annual holiday vacation crunch – which can mean either too few staffers on hand or a business populated by disgruntled workers – needs to rethink the company’s policy on time off. Or, if there isn’t a policy, create one. The vacation problem is often twofold, a lack of planning on the owner’s part, and a lack of communication with employees. “More often than not, we think of it when we are right up against the holidays,” said Mary Massad, director of corporate recruiting services for Administaff, a Houston-based human-resources firm. “Most employees have already started thinking about their plans long ago.” The best way to keep disappointment and strife to a minimum is to formulate a vacation policy, detailing how much time off each staffer gets, how far in advance they need to request it and how conflicts will be resolved – for example, by seniority, or first come, first served. Another very important issue: What happens to time off that isn’t used during the year. You’ll also want to include the holidays on which the company will be closed. There’s much at stake in creating a vacation policy. You need to be sure you have enough staffers to get the work done. And a lack of planning can lead to a lot of hard feelings among co-workers, and hurt morale in general – no one wants to find out at the last minute that he or she won’t be able to go home for the holidays, and no one (that is, the ones who got the time off) wants to feel the resentment of their angry colleagues. But planning for vacations or creating a time-off policy tends to be one of those tasks that gets put aside once the crisis has passed. “They get through the hectic time, they swear they’re never going to do it again and they find themselves back there” the next year, Massad said. If that sounds like your modus operandi, be forewarned: You’ll likely face a similar crunch well before the 2006 holiday season. For example, July 4 falls on a Tuesday next year, and you can bet right now that most of your staff will want Monday, July 3, off as well. Massad said many business owners don’t deal with the time-off issue because they don’t want to have to tell a staffer “no.” But the fact is, if you set expectations well in advance, your employees will be prepared. You might also find that they’re willing to negotiate among themselves – someone who was off last Christmas week might be willing to forgo the week off this year. “If you appeal to their sense of teamwork, some employees will think about it and say, You know, I don’t have to do that,” said Leigh Branham, a human-resources consultant in Overland Park, Kan. If you’re planning to put a vacation policy together, you can find plenty of resources online or in the business section of bookstores or libraries. Talking to other business owners can help you decide what policy works for you. Another resource is SCORE, the organization of retired business executives, which gives free counseling to small-business owners. You can reach SCORE on the Internet at www.score.org, or call (800) 634-0245. But even if you don’t formulate a written policy, you can avoid the angst of the holiday season by communicating with employees. You can start by posting a vacation sign-up sheet in January – and letting the staff know how many people are allowed to be off on the same days – but you also need to discuss vacations as the year progresses. Branham suggested reminding employees quarterly that they need to let you know their vacation plans. One reason why it’s important to monitor your employees’ vacation is so you can be sure they’re taking their allotted time off. Massad noted that employees need to take a break; having some time off helps them do their work better. It might be tempting to let an employee just keep working, since less vacation time means fewer disruptions in the company routine. But don’t fall victim to that idea – and while we’re on the topic, be sure you take some time off yourself.last_img read more

A real find in the Valley

first_imgLadies and gentlemen, get your paddles ready. Bidding will start just after noon, at 12:05 today, on a rarity in this hot real estate market: A three-bedroom, two-bathroom house in affluent Woodland Hills up for auction with no minimum price. In the past week, the 1960s-era ranch house at 22142 Tiara St. has attracted hundreds of wannabe homeowners – secretaries, police officers, young professionals – who think the auction might be their one shot at affording a house in Woodland Hills. And in a neighborhood where homes sell for $750,000 to $800,000, dozens of potential buyers hoping for a good deal have registered for the sale. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals So, let the bidding begin. Who’s ready at $399,000? Who’s gonna go $550,000? $600,000? Premiere Estates Chief Auctioneer Todd Wohl wouldn’t say what he thinks the price will be when his gavel falls and he yells “Sold,” but he’s expected to start the bidding under $400,000, a price not seen since 2002. Frustrated with the real estate market, in which the median price for a San Fernando Valley house is $600,000 and homes often sell for far more than the asking price, some shoppers are forgoing open houses in favor of auctions. “You might get a little better price,” said Viren Jain, who was checking out the Tiara Street property with his wife and baby during an open house Friday. He’s been house-hunting for five months. “I’m trying the traditional ways, but maybe I can get a fair price at auction if not too many people show up.” What would be a fair price? Probably $500,000 or below, Jain said. Real estate auctions are common in the Northeast and South, but Californians tend to rely on agents to negotiate a price. San Francisco Realtor Vince Malta, president of the California Association of Realtors, said shoppers turn to auctions when they feel they can get a better deal. “If the market is a very hot-paced market, then you’re going to see more and more auctions. If the market is a slow market, then there’s no reason a property may sell for less than a property sold the traditional way.” Auction proponents, such as Wohl, believe buyers might find that the auction process presents less guesswork and less stress, especially in the current market when properties rack up many offers and sell for more than the listed price. “So many people are frustrated with the listing process today. You have offers taken and made and sold in the first couple of hours,” Wohl said. “In the auction process, everybody knows how everyone else is bidding. Everything is completely out in the open. They know exactly what’s going on and how much they have to bid.” But some in the business warn that auctions rarely mean rock-bottom prices. “We’re at an auction. Are you going to let me buy it for half-price? Am I going to let you buy it for three-quarters of the price?” said Chuck McAtee, president of Pacific Auction Exchange Inc. Add in the emotional aspect of buying a house with the adrenaline of a fast-paced bidding war, and buyers often push up the price. McAtee recently auctioned a house in Ontario for $720,000 – $45,000 more than the seller anticipated. That’s why Mike Krause, a kitchen remodeler and real estate investor, is sitting this auction out. “You’re going to get Joe Homeowners out and they’ll drive up the selling price.” That’ll make it too expensive for an investor, like himself, who would remodel the house and resell. After checking out the Tiara Street house this week, he figured it will sell for around $600,000 at auction. Then the buyer must pay a 5 percent premium to the auction company, so add on $30,000 if the winning bid is $600,000. Even if he built a new kitchen and new bathrooms and landscaped the yards, he could probably only sell it for $725,000 – not a big enough margin for an investor. Wohl agreed. “This is not a home with granite countertops or Jacuzzi tubs. This is a home with a lot of potential. It’s an opportunity to get into the market, to live in the home and fix it along the way.” Kerry Cavanaugh, (818) 713-3746 kerry.cavanaugh@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BRICS urge G20 to push for fair trade

first_img23 April 2012The BRICS grouping of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa has called on the G20 to strengthen its coordination and find ways to improve the multilateral trading system in order to address current global economic uncertainties.The call was made at a G20 ministerial meeting in Mexico over the weekend.South African Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies said the BRICS trade ministers had called upon their fellow G20 trade ministers to identify ways to improve the multilateral trading system.“We have made this call, so that all economies may pursue a sustainable and ‘development-friendly’ integration in global trade, including adjustment strategies for their industries and workforce, as well as the appropriate social and sectoral policies to respond to existing structural vulnerabilities,” Davies said in a statement released on Monday.Conclusion of Doha Round ‘vital’The BRICS ministers had re-emphased their commitment to the Doha Development Round, saying the conclusion of the Doha would be a significant step in this direction and urging the G20 to work towards this.According to BRICS ministers, while global value chains were playing an increasing role in trade, many sectors, industries and even countries were not participating in global value chains as fully as others.“In order for global value chains to serve as instruments of growth and development, it would be important to develop a deeper understanding of their developmental impact and the conditions under which they can be used to achieve long term socio-economic gains,” Davies said.At the same time, Davies cautioned that obstacles should not be placed in the way of the development and effective functioning of global value chains “for protectionist reasons”.“In this context, it would be useful to have a member-driven process, in the WTO, Unctad and other intergovernmental agencies, to examine this issue, including the identification of more accurate statistical methods to assess value addition.”SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
