Lewandowski: “Cristiano and Ramos wanted me at Real Madrid”

May 14, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: fofabvlic.

first_imgPrecisely regarding his desire and motivation, the Pole has confessed his continued hunger. “I spend the game asking for or wanting the ball. If I have scored a goal, I want another. If I have three, I must do the fourth. Sometimes colleagues say to me: ‘Don’t you realize that we have another game in two or three days?’ But for me, if you’re having a good time, if you love sports, if you love scoring goals, it’s never enough. “ Asked if it is true that three years ago, after playing against Madrid with Bayern, Cristiano and Ramos told him that he had to play with them, Lewandowski confirmed: “Yes. You can go to the Spanish League or to any other country, another great club, but for me it is not the most important thing. Where I am I have been able to reach my maximum level and I still want to continue doing well. “ Robert Lewandowski (31 years old) has given an interview to Sport in which he talks, among other things, about one of the several attempts by Real Madrid to sign him. The Bayern Munich forward offers details in this regard, with the participation of players from the white club. 9 Lewandowski has also been very clear about his future: “I am in one of the best clubs in the world, I know I can be happy here. What we have is of a very high level, from the squad to the sports city. Everything is easier playing in a club like this. “last_img read more

Poor Campaign Start in Bong

January 18, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: fofabvlic.

first_imgIn keeping with the National Elections Commission’s (NEC) pronouncement for the commencement, on Thursday November 20, of political campaign activities for the special senatorial election, campaign activities began with poor activities in Gbarnga, Bong County.Only the Congress for Democratic Change vehicle plied the streets of Gbarnga.The special senatorial election, which was to be conducted on October 14, was delayed due to the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease that is claiming lives in the country.   With just barely three weeks to election, many residents in Gbarnga had anticipated crowded campaign activities in the politically charged county,   with 13 senatorial candidates for the lone post.Many of the residents, who spoke with the Daily Observer in Gbarnga on Thursday November 20, 2014 said they expected crowded campaign happenings owing to the fact of the limited time for campaigning and the crowded field of candidates in the county.“I expected packed campaign events calculating the short period of time but I am confused with the poor start. This is a clear manifestation that there will be a poor turnout on December 16,” remarked Mr. David Kolliesuah, a student of Administration at the Cuttington University.   Another resident, Peter K. Menekermue, told this newspaper that in the 2011 general and presidential elections, there were more campaign activities in Gbarnga as compared to this special senatorial election.Some of the residents, who spoke with this newspaper suggested that with the entrenched culture of Liberians for last minute rush, the candidates are waiting for the last week in the campaign to commence their activities;  while others are attributing the poor start to the outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever in the country.The residents also credited the poor commencement of the campaign activities in the county to the economic  hardship confronting local residents as a result of the invasion of the Ebola virus disease in the country.Investigation conducted by this newspaper established that with the presence of the disease in the county, it is expected that there will be a poor turnout on December 16 if the prevalence of the disease remains.Currently, two communities in Bong County are quarantined as the result of the new outbreak of the Ebola virus disease in the county.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Manickchand scolds Govt over its “inaccessibility”

January 17, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: fofabvlic.

first_imgPPP/C MP and former Education Minister Priya ManickchandGovernment has come in for some harsh flogging by People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Member of Parliament (MP) Priya Manickchand who last Thursday criticised it for backpedalling on its promise of inclusive governance and its continued “inaccessibility”.Her criticism came in light of the recent revelation regarding the change of format of the examination paper for students scheduled to sit the National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA) this month-end. The former Education Minister has concerns with the students now having to write their names on the exam paper, and also condemned Government for not reaching out to the people and members of the Opposition.“This is the same Government which said that it was going to be inclusive in its governance. Never told, never asked as a parent, as a person who has been in that seat for a couple of years, as a citizen, as a Member of Parliament and the Opposition’s representative to say on particular issues,” she complained, noting that her stint at the Education Ministry was very much different to what is taking place now.“We were always accessible. We could have been reached. Ask us questions on social media, meet us in the market, call us, etc. This Government is running this country out of their offices and comfort of the homes of their supporters. This is not happening the way it should be happening.  The Government has dozens of Ministers and advisers, but is not touching people. They are going by planes, because they are travelling frequently,” she told Journalists.According to her, when she was Education Minister, she would meet with the Shadow Ministers of both the then Opposition A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance For Change (AFC) at her invitation.“We never announced anything big under my watch in the newspapers. They were told about it first and had an input in it,” she said.Manickchand reminded that when a decision was made to change the age of entry into nursery school and begin the distribution of the cash grant, Shadow Ministers were first informed.She said since she left the office, she has never been invited to the Ministry as the now Shadow Minister of Education to have any discussion on any matter.The former Education Minister said this was among the many reasons the Opposition would not be participating in the education Commission of Inquiry (CoI).“There is no consistent engagement with the people who have standing in the country. While we represent the whole country, if you are talking specifically to the number of votes, then that is something different,” Manickchand said, continuing that good governance requires that all be involved and Government makes itself accessible. Changes, she said, should not be made without proper public consultation.She added that women of the PPP were not even invited to any of the Women Affairs programme.“It’s like the PPP does not have women or none of the PPP women have never contributed to the development of women in this country,” Manickchand stated.last_img read more

‘It’s a surprise’: Klopp wowed by Liverpool’s hot start

January 6, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: fofabvlic.

first_imgThe victory marked Liverpool’s best start to a season since they won eight league games in a row in 1990-91.Klopp’s red-hot men have now won seven successive matches in all competitions this term.Southampton manager Mark Hughes, now without a league win in 12 visits to Anfield with six different teams, admitted the second half was simply “damage limitation” for the Saints.And Klopp was happy to welcome another unexpected milestone on his team’s journey.“I lost seven games in a row once, that felt different! But then we won game number eight 5-0, very cool,” he said.“It’s a surprise, but all the performances we showed so far were good enough to win the games.“Different challenges, different styles of opponent, the boys were there, really in the situation and in the game.”Klopp was also able to offer good news on the only possible downsides on the day for Liverpool, the half time removal of Xherdan Shaqiri and the second half substitution of Virgil van Dijk, who left the pitch clutching his ribs.Klopp revealed Shaqiri’s early substitution in his first Liverpool start was purely tactical despite his involvement in the build up to the first goal – his shot hit Shane Long before going in off Hoedt – and his superb 25 yard free-kick against the bar which led to Salah’s tap-in for the third.“I said to Shaq at half time that I’d never taken a player off at half time after such an influential half,” Klopp said.“He was not injured, but I wanted to control the game, go back to our normal formation, and that helped us.”The Swiss international understood the decision, according to his manager.“He’s a fantastic boy so there was no problem. I explained it to him, usually I don’t explain substitutions but I thought today it made a bit of sense,” Klopp added.“It’s just good to have him. You saw the free kick, it was outstanding. What a ball!”– Cutting edge –Van Dijk, said Klopp, aggravated bruised ribs which he carried into the PSG game in midweek.“He had already before the PSG game kind of a bruised rib, which is very uncomfortable, and today he got another hit there,” he said.“It’s not cool, but should not be too serious.“He said he couldn’t shout any more, so that’s obviously 60 per cent less of his level!”Klopp’s 600th competitive game as a manager saw Liverpool extend an impressive home league record, unbeaten now in 18 games and 17 months at Anfield.No opposing player has even scored here in the league since February, with Liverpool scoring 23 in the same period.While the Saints enjoyed some promising moments they could not find the cutting edge to worry their opponents.The second half was rather a non-event with Salah’s disallowed finish after James Milner’s shot was cleared off the line the closest Liverpool came to adding gloss to the scoreline.Hughes thought 3-0 was harsh on his side but added: “We faced a quality side today. We’re not the first and won’t be the last not to cope with their attacking threat.“We didn’t really give ourselves a chance in the opening period, we were too easy to create chances against though we were unfortunate with the opening goal.”The victory ended a positive week for Liverpool with a third win after a statement victory against top four rivals Spurs at Wembley last weekend and the breathless, late victory against Paris St Germain in the Champions League.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mohamed Salah was on target in Liverpool’s win over Southampton © AFP / Paul ELLISLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Sep 22 – Jurgen Klopp admitted Liverpool’s flying start has surprised him as they won their sixth successive Premier League game to return to the top of the table.The comfortable 3-0 victory over Southampton at Anfield was wrapped up by half-time on Saturday courtesy of an own goal from Wesley Hoedt, Joel Matip’s header and Mohamed Salah’s simple finish.last_img read more

‘100 per cent’ fit Bryan Oviedo ready for Everton action

January 3, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: fofabvlic.

first_img Everton defender Bryan Oviedo 1 Everton midfielder Bryan Oviedo wants a run of games to finally prove his form and fitness to manager Roberto Martinez.The Costa Rican midfielder has spent three seasons at Goodison, after joining from Kobenhavn in 2012, but has started just 11 Premier League games.The 25-year-old has endured a miserable run of injuries during that time, most painful a broken leg he suffered in 2014 and the most recent a broken foot, but he wants to finally get his career on Merseyside going after playing the final 23 minutes against Watford at the weekend.“The most important thing for me is to continue playing minutes to continue progressing,” Oviedo told Everton’s website. “I think its important to play but I need to be careful with my fitness.“I think it’s a good moment for me to start playing games but at the moment I need to concentrate and focus on staying 100 per cent fit.“My foot and my fitness are 100 per cent now, so I’m training with the team normally and working hard to get a place in the first team.“I need to train hard and do everything well to show the manager that I am ready to play.”last_img read more
