Lopetegui doesnt regret signing for Real Madrid

first_imgIn an interview this Monday for Onda Cero, Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui confirmed that he regrets nothing about his Spain fiasco.Looking more in detail to the way things went down when Julen Lopetegui got sacked from the Spanish National Team just days before the World Cup after signing for Real Madrid, there are many ways in which one can judge what happened but things were pretty clear from the outside. Julen Lopetegui went behind Spanish Federation president Luis Rubiales’ back, and agree to become the new Real Madrid manager with Florentino Perez. This angered the chairman and he decided to not think about Spain’s best interest but his own, so he decided to sack Julen Lopetegui without thinking of the effect that this decision could have on the national team during the World Cup. The tournament was a disaster for Spain because of this, and Lopetegui was presented as the Real Madrid manager just days after the news first broke around the world.▶️?️ ¿Siente Julen Lopetegui rencor por lo sucedido en la @SeFutbol ? Nos lo cuenta en @ElTransistorOC #LopeteguienElTransistor pic.twitter.com/4TyiJ6cqK7— El Transistor (@ElTransistorOC) September 3, 2018Now that a little time has passed and Julan Lopetegui is doing great at Real Madrid, it was time for him to talk more openly about the whole situation but he still refused to go into many more details. All Lopetegui will agree on is that he did nothing wrong, he is convinced that he never went on Rubiales’ back and this was just a possing contest that the federation president didn’t want to lose against Florentino. Sadly for the manager, he was caught right in the middle of everything and he was the one who went through the worst moments of the whole situation. This Monday night, the Real Madrid manager sat down with renowned journalist Jose Ramon de la Morena from the radio show better known as El Transistor, which is a program for Spanish news outlet Onda Cero. The interviews De La Morena usually conducts are usually pretty serious and can get a little controversial, mainly because the journalist engages the subjects with a hard line of questioning.▶️?️ El entrenador del @realmadrid , Julen Lopetegui nos cuenta su opinión sobre lo sucedido con la @SeFutbol #LopeteguienElTransistor pic.twitter.com/2J09vUP9yV— El Transistor (@ElTransistorOC) September 3, 2018Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.For De la Morena the most obvious question was related to what really happened between Luis Rubiales and Julen Lopetegui, but the Real Madrid manager was limited in his answers because he clearly doesn’t want to create any more problems with this. However, Lopetegui did seem a bit eager to finally speak about the subject publicly and decided to let out a couple of gems that made the headlines throughout Spain and the rest of the world. The manager started with the most obvious answer he was going to give the journalist: “I regret nothing, I did everything in an honest manner and I would make the same decision if I had to do it again. We did what we had to do by saying yes to Real Madrid. We were always responsible because we considered that was the path we had to take for the benefit of all the national team players,” said Julen at first before he started going a little bit more into detail.▶️?️ ¿Qué sintió Julen Lopetegui al ver los partidos de la @SeFutbol del Mundial 2018?

I don’t stop to think about it, what’s done is done and I would do it all over again because I feel like I did it the right way. But that is old news now, not only in the way it happened but also inside my head. I don’t feel the need to reminisce about the past, I’m relaxed and happy because I am the Real Madrid manager. What I did was to say yes to Real Madrid without changing my commitment to the national team and always thinking about the objectives we had at the moment. The farewell with all the players was very emotional, but that will remain between us. Now being Real Madrid’s manager is a huge challenge and it makes me very happy. I feel very grateful to all the football players and to the Federation as well. But what happened cannot be changed back though,” he finished without mentioning Rubiales by name during his whole statement about the subject.? #ENDIRECTO comienza @ElTransistorOC con @jrdelamorena https://t.co/TSlNXkmTPS pic.twitter.com/jSBon4JuvD— Onda Cero (@OndaCero_es) September 3, 2018Who do you think was wrong in all this mess between Julen Lopetegui, Luis Rubiales, and Florentino Perez?

Video Paul Scholes questions Ander Herreras quality

first_imgManchester United legend Paul Scholes wasn’t impressed with what he saw from Ander Herrera after the club’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday nightJose Mourinho’s side came back twice from a goal down at Old Trafford to secure a draw with Arsenal after goals from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.But the result left United down in eight-place in the Premier League and eight points adrift of a top-four spot – which has become their main objective this season.However, for Scholes, the most frustrating thing about their home draw against Arsenal was Herrera.The Spanish midfielder’s struggle to play the ball to team-mate Paul Pogba left Scholes baffled afterwards.“You have to question the quality of the player,” Scholes said on BT Sport via Twitter.“Rio asked the question there when he said: ‘Is Ander Herrera capable of playing that ball to Pogba?’“Now, he’s in 15-20 yards of space, it’s probably a 30-yard ball – a simple ball – if he’s not good enough to play that ball then he shouldn’t be at this club.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.Scholes’ former United team-mate Rio Ferdinand did suggest, however, that a lack of confidence may have been at fault.“It is an easy ball and when you hear Paul Scholes say that… he was a player who could put the ball on a sixpence from anywhere on the pitch, but when you look at that pass it’s not a difficult ball to play – I think it’s confidence,” said Ferdinand.“When you’re not confident, a five or 10-yard ball to the right-back from the centre-half position can be an awkward ball at times because you think: ‘I don’t want it to go out, the fans are going to get on my back, it’s live on TV – I’m going to play it back to the goalkeeper’.”• Pogba in space• Herrera 30 yards away”If he can’t play a simple ball, he shouldn’t be at this club!” 😬Paul Scholes questions the quality of some of Man Utd’s players… pic.twitter.com/GlJgGnSrZt— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) December 5, 2018last_img read more

Laurent Koscielny insists injury made him a better man

We will take a…“I talked to a lot of people who had been injured like me, or in their knees, so it’s like six months [out], and they told me that you miss football a lot and when you come back you are so hungry. You want to eat everything and grow on the pitch and just enjoy and be happy with what you can do on the pitch.““These are real things that I have in me. I’m hungry to play football again and to play with my teammates, so I don’t think people will say ‘you have been injured and will be less stronger than before’. I think you are mentally stronger than any people who didn’t have an injury like you’ve had.”“A lot of people said, ‘OK, he went to Saint-Raphael in the south of France and it was sunny and he’s enjoying his holiday’, but for me it wasn’t a holiday. Every week I trained with two sessions and they made it quick enough so that I could enjoy my time with my family at the weekend.

Dwight does well, he’s still growing into the game, still getting used to what it’s like, he fires one across and Woody is looking like he’s coming back to where he wants to be.”“He’s driving across the box, really sharp, and him and Barnesy were a handful.”Burnley FC v Manchester City - Premier LeagueMatch Preview: Burnley vs Liverpool Boro Tanchev – August 30, 2019 Premier League leaders Liverpool travel to Burnley for the Matchday 4 of the 2019-20 Premier League campaign.“It felt like it at the time, but credit to Huddersfield, however you look at it, they’ve got a goal, a good one from their point of view and a soft one from ours.”“We’re getting tighter with that, to be fair, I don’t think we gave too much away tonight.”“I think, on the balance of play early on, after the first seven or eight minutes, we got a real foothold, and we started to keep the ball, mix it well, and when we do that, we are a side that can cause trouble.”“We were causing trouble. We were calm after the first goal, and then we score, and it changes with the sending off.”“But then that’s difficult, and credit to Huddersfield, they kept working, stayed diligent and stayed in their shape, so we had to keep probing, until we found the chance.”“There were other chances, but it was a really good goal and a really good finish from Barnesy and we deserved to win the game from there.”last_img read more

Bahamas Ministry of Finance responds to Moodys review

In a statement, the ministry says it is “moving expeditiously to address the fiscal situation”. The ministry outlined plans that include “fiscal responsibility legislation, procurement regulations, and public expenditure review” as some policies it intends to roll out.Describing the review as an “unfortunate development”, the ministry says “Government’s efforts to strengthen revenue administration are receiving renewed focus, especially in the areas of real property taxes, customs, VAT and Business License administration and enforcement”. However, it adds this is dependent on Government’s plan to introduce a Revenue Administration Bill, as a way of dealing with tax delinquencies.Other solutions to tackling the downgrade include moving quickly to improve the ease of doing business in The Bahamas, addressing structural impediments to growth and attracting foreign direct investment.Moody’s review was prompted after government’s budget statement, and a further increase in debt through planned borrowing. The credit rating agency has called for more policies to be put in place if The Bahamas is to prevent the further downgrade.last_img read more
