Sterling, to AS: “The Zidane thing is not flower, but formula”

first_img“I do not want to be favorites in the European Championship. Spain a team that is always a challenge” 10 England has a great team for the European Championship this summer. Does the tournament arrive at your best personal moment?It is a good opportunity for us. In general, watching our players, but especially in the lead: Sancho, Rashford, Kane … They are players who are playing very well, but not only that, they are also leading their teams as examples. That’s why it’s a good time for England, but we also need to prove it in a great tournament. The World Cup went well, but I think we have improved since that much, especially in the attack, which is now more talented. Now we need to make a name for ourselves and the European Championship is a giant dream for me and my country, so it is something I am fully prepared for, as for any other tournament.In which position of favorites would you put England?I do not want as favorites. I hope nobody puts us as favorites, but when the day comes we are there.And to Spain?In summer you can not leave the ball too much because it seems that they will never lose it and you do not want to go home soon and start the preseason. They always have a good team and good players continue to appear over the years. It is a team that is always a challenge. According to Transfermarkt, he is the second most expensive player in the world (€ 160M), tied with Neymar and only surpassed by Mbappé (€ 200M). What is missing to be at least on the podium of the Golden Ball or win the Player of The Year in England?Especially last year, he speaks for himself that we won poker in England and then no player of ours will take the Player of the Year. It was given to a Liverpool player that I think he had a fantastic season, but … It happened in previous seasons, when Touré participated in 20 goals as a midfielder. Or with Agüero, who has been here since 2011, scores incredible goals and has never won. I think these players are not treated the same as those of the other teams in England and the world. De Bruyne was amazing the first year we won the Premier. Whenever we win something they give it to the rival team. It is the kind of thing that does not depend on us, but still we continue.JAVIER GANDUL & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Sterling poses with Real Madrid and Manchester City shirts for AS in Manchester.JAVIER GANDUL (DAILY AS) Is it something you think about?Everyone can see it. It is impossible that we win the Premier four or five times without the Player of the Year. This year Liverpool will win and surely the MVP will be some player of his. We are not treated with the same respect.Madrid loved him and there are still rumors about it. How do you receive them?It’s something you can see all the time, but I’m a City player and I’m enjoying the moment, even if things have not gone as planned in the Premier. We have a great opportunity in the Champions League, although I still say that Madrid is a fantastic club, in a country with incredible weather. But I repeat: I am very happy in the City. Would he be in his eleven?Insurance. 100%And you, by level, in Real Madrid?(Laughs). It’s one of those things … Now I’m in the City and I’m very happy, but I also say that Madrid is a fantastic club. When you see the white shirt you know exactly what the club represents, it’s huge. Although I have to say that I have a great contract with the City (until 2023) and I have to respect it. But it is a fantastic club. Accompanied by two members of your agency, Colossal Sports Management, Raheem Sterling (Jamaica, 25 years old) receives AS at the luxurious Lowry Hotel, the same one in which Mourinho lived in his stage in Manchester. Until his injury, Raheem was the top goal generator (20 goals and 6 assists) of his club, which prohibits this newspaper from questions about the UEFA sanction. Risueño and confident of arriving at the Bernabéu, analyzes the tie, among other topics, during a talk of about an hour. This is the first part… Where was he during the draw?We had gathered at the training center to watch the raffle, something we always do and it’s a lot of fun. We reacted well when we knew it was Madrid. You know it’s a great club, but also a challenge and, so I’m sorry in the Champions League, if you want to do it right, it’s best to play against the best teams. And there is no better challenge than Madrid.That Madrid was worse than today. Have you followed its evolution?Yes, but I say from the heart that both then and now, always, will be a difficult game, regardless of whether they are in good or bad time. Just for the atmosphere, the historic Bernabéu … And especially now that they are doing very well. But I also have total confidence in our team. And, if we have the day, I think we can win.Zidane has been key in the improvement, but I don’t know if he knows there are those who say he is basically lucky. They call it ‘The flower of Zidane’. How do you see it?I think winning the Champions League many times, especially in a row, is very difficult. Flower? I don’t think it’s luck, but definitely formula. Some people have that winning mentality and he wins anyway. I would say that it is something that he has probably developed in his great career as a player and now as a coach, so he keeps this winning touch. I do not think that when you win it is luck, but a winning mentality. The goals are good at the end. Are you aware that Madrid too?Yes, we know how difficult it will be. It is probably one of the most important tests of our careers. I think it is a great year for us in the Champions League because the Premier has not gone as planned. This is our chance to go out and show what we are made of. Today there are not many teams that can stop us.Which Madrid player would sign if he had a team?To Modric. I’ve played against him a couple of times, especially with Croatia, and I don’t know, just the way he floats … It’s very nice to look at. 7 He said in the past that “anyone’s dream of growing up is to look at the shirt of an outside team in a sunny country.” Would you like to play in Madrid one day?(Laughs). How do I answer this question? Is the camera recording live or just taking pictures? No one knows what awaits him in the future. I am a player who is always open to challenges, but he is currently in the City.He had a problem in Spain-England of 2018 with Ramos, who said he had not stepped on it. Did they talk or apologize after the game?It was a match and we both tried to win for our countries. He knows he stepped on me, but he is one of those who … He didn’t think it was missing and I do, things that happen sometimes. Love was not lost. He is a player whom I admire for everything he does. He is a true role model and an icon, someone you listen to when he speaks. At the end of the game everything was fine, with love. “Playing in Madrid? No one knows what awaits him in the future. I am a player who is always open to challenges, but he is now in the City” In addition to Brahim, is it related to any Real Madrid player?No, but I have seen Isco or Marcelo a couple of times on vacation. If I see Brahim putting something good on Instagram I say “keep it up” or “good luck”, but not continuously.last_img read more

Martinez on Everton takeover reports: ‘The future will be very, very bright for the club’

first_imgEverton manager Roberto Martinez told talkSPORT ‘there is nothing to mention’ regarding reports of £200million takeover bid, but insisted ‘the future will be very, very bright’ for the club.Speculation on Tuesday claimed an American consortium, led by Jay Moores – former owner of NLF side San Diego Padres – and entrepreneur Charles Noell – had tabled the offer following months of discussions with Toffees chairman Bill Kenwright.It could be the end of a long process from the Everton chief, who has apparently been searching for big investment in the club for the last decade.Kenwright purchased the Merseyside club from local businessman Peter Johnson for £20m in 1999 and admitted back in November 2007: “If the right person stands in front of me and wants to take this club forward, I will sell.”Martinez, a guest on Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show, was hesitant to talk about the developments when questioned, but did give his backing to Kenwright – who has faced a backlash from fans in recent months – and ‘guaranteed’ that whatever decision was made would be in the best interests of the club’s development.He told talkSPORT: “I’ve been a bit surprised that there’s been a lot of talk about this. There’s nothing to mention.“But what I could add is something that every Evertonian and fan needs to know, which is that our chairman loves Everton.“He grew up at Goodison and I don’t think you get many owners who have this attachment to a football club.“I can guarantee you that anything that is going to happen will be good for the club.“We have a chairman who I don’t think has got the credit he deserves at times, he has been running the club under very difficult circumstances.“So now I can guarantee you that, whatever is going to happen, the future will be very, very bright for Everton.“I don’t think at Everton you’ll ever see a takeover based on finances. If anything happens it will to allow the club to go to the next level, to fulfil the big projects and big aspirations we have.“At the moment all I would love if to see our chairman stay at the club for another 100 years, because nobody has the same passion and understanding of Everton as a club.”last_img read more

BRAVE LETTERKENNY ROVERS BOW OUT OF FAI YOUTH CUP IN CORK

first_imgFOOTBALL: Letterkenny Rovers Youths have bowed out of the FAI Youth Cup following a brave display away to Ballincollig FC in Cork this morning.Anthony Gorman’s side have performed superbly to reach the last eight of the prestigious youth competition. The side was decimated earlier in the season with a raft of players joining Finn Harps and Derry City to play in the League of Ireland U17 and U19 leagues.So, to reach the last eight of the competition with a very young side was a magnificent achievement.Ballincollig were tipped as one of the favourites to win the competition right from the outset of the FAI Youth Cup.The Cork side have consistently produced top-class young talent and regularly compete in the knockout stages at a national level. So, an away trip to Ballincollig was a daunting task for Gorman’s young charges.However, Rovers weren’t fazed and they stunned the hosts when they took the lead when Ruairi Friel fired home on 35 minutes.Unfortunately that lead only lasted two minutes and Ballincollig struck back through Matthew Whelan.That’s how it stayed until the interval, and the game was evenly posed for the second-half.However, Whelan struck again on 63 minutes before O’Donovan made the game safe with twenty minutes to go.A brave, brave effort from Letterkenny who gave an excellent account of themselves. Ballincollig march onto the last four of the FAI Youth Cup.BRAVE LETTERKENNY ROVERS BOW OUT OF FAI YOUTH CUP IN CORK was last modified: March 13th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Ballincolligfai cupFootballLetterkenny RoversSportyouthlast_img read more

SEX ABUSE SCANDAL: PAEDOPHILE VICTIM – ‘I SAW FR GREENE AT ARDSCOIL MHUIRE WITH MICHAEL FERRY’

first_imgThe first victim of evil paedophile Michael Ferry has revealed how priest Fr Eugene Greene regularly called to see the caretaker at Donegal’s school of horrors.Fr Greene was jailed for 12 years after being found guilty of sexually abusing 26 boys in Donegal between 1962 and 1985.Now Michael Ferry’s first victim has revealed how he regularly saw Fr Greene call to Ard Scoil Mhuire in Gaoth Dobhair in the mid 1980s. The man, who asked not to be named, bravely gave evidence against Ferry in 2002.However Ferry only received a six month suspended sentence and was back abusing boys just weeks later at Colaiste Cholmcille in Gaoth Dobhair.Last night Ferry’s first victim gave sickening evidence of why he believes Ferry was part of a paedophile ring operating the West Donegal region.“I remember seeing Fr Eugene Greene going into Ferry’s room on a number of occasions at Ard Scoile Mhuire. “I was never abused by Greene but I have no doubt other boys were. We were all told to leave and to get out.“I have no question they were operating together and abusing boys. I just know they were. What other reason would Greene have had for being there?” he asked.The victim, who twice tried to take his own life after being abused by Ferry, revealed how his nightmare began when Ferry offered to teach him martial arts.They first met when the victim moved into the area from another county and joined the local Foroige Club which Ferry was involved in.“He was cool and I was fifteen and a little bit rebellious and wanted to get out of my house. “It was cool to hang around with him and he would offer us fags and a couple of quid. He never offered me drink.“He offered to teach me a bit of martial arts and the abuse first started when he got me down in a hold and I couldn’t move. That was the first time he put his hands down my trousers.“I have to say he never raped me but he did abuse me over two years. It could have been anything from 30 times upwards but I can’t remember now,” he said.The victim, who has now moved out of Donegal and lives in the south of the country, is happily married with children. He only heard about Ferry’s recent court case just a few days before it was due to take place.He spoke to the Gardai and got permission to go to Dublin to attend Ferry’s sentencing.However he admits he still feels guilty and partially blames himself for what happened to Derek Mulligan, the three other victims in the case and the many other victims he believes are across Donegal.“I shook hands with the lads and told them the worst of it was over now. I felt some kind of relief that Ferry was going to go to prison at last.“But I felt guilty that he hadn’t gone to prison for what he had done to me and that he was able to go on and abuse these lads.“That will live with me forever but I will learn to live with it and move on,” he said.The brave victim also appealed to anybody who thinks they have been abused to come forward and speak to the authorities.“I take my hat off to the lads and especially to Derek Mulligan who has come out. They have been so brave.“They have opened the gates for all the other victims out there to come out and release themselves from this thing that hangs over them.“If they are scared they should go and speak with Derek Mulligan and he will help them. They don’t have to come out publicly but they have to come out – just to help themselves move on and to get counseling.“This is only the beginning for them but it will get easier with time. It has for me,” he said.EndsSEX ABUSE SCANDAL: PAEDOPHILE VICTIM – ‘I SAW FR GREENE AT ARDSCOIL MHUIRE WITH MICHAEL FERRY’ was last modified: July 23rd, 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)last_img read more

LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL CRISIS: ANGER DEEPENS OVER MINISTER’S CLAIMS

first_imgANGER is deepening over claims that Letterkenny General Hospital’s emergency department is performing well.Under-staffed and clearly not fit for purpose, a local TD has questioned the government’s commitment to open the new medical block on the site within the next six months.But today hospital manager Sean Murphy told the Shaun Doherty Show on Highland Radio that as far as he was concerned there was no guarantee it would be opened this year – next mind by the summer. Mr Murphy told the programme: “I cannot seriously guarantee that it will open this year.“Every effort that the hospital can make, by the clinical team and the management team, to get this unit open will be made.”No wonder then that Donegal North East Sinn Féin TD, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn ‘cautiously welcomed’ a Government commitment to open the new medical block at Letterkenny General Hospital within six months.The new medical block incorporates an Accident and Emergency Department with 19 bays, an acute assessment unit with 11 bays and three 24 bed wards covering three floors. Deputy Mac Lochlainn said: “Both myself and Deputy Pearse Doherty have vigorously pursued the completion of this vital new medical block with the HSE and in the Dáil. Following the overcrowding in the existing Accident and Emergency Department, we decided to again bring this issue to the fore in the Dáil.“Yesterday evening, under our “topical issues” debate, the Minister of State, Kathleen Lynch confirmed that the block will be open within six months. While this is welcome, Sinn Féin is determined to see it open before then”“Next Wednesday 25th, a Sinn Féin delegation of myself, Mayor of Letterkenny, Cllr Gerry McMonagle, and Cllr Mick Quinn will meet with the Regional Director of HSE West, John Hennessy and the HSE Regional Manager, John Hayes in Dublin. We will again demand that the HSE provides the necessary financial and personnel resources to the Management of Letterkenny General Hospital to ensure that this new block is opened as soon as possible”“Unfortunately, the opening of the new block is only the start of a long fight ahead to defend the existing services and specialities at Letterkenny General Hospital. It is clear from last year’s 8 million euro overspend that our local Hospital, which is officially one of the most efficient in the state, has been systematically underfunded”Our previous story on this issue is here: https://www.donegaldaily.com/2012/01/17/you-couldnt-make-it-up-letterkenny-ae-not-overcrowded-says-government/And judging by the comments (some from staff whose identities we have protected) the Government isn’t telling the whole yarn.LEAVE YOU COMMENTS BELOW:LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL CRISIS: ANGER DEEPENS OVER MINISTER’S CLAIMS was last modified: January 18th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:ANGER is deepening over claims that Letterkenny General Hospital’s emergency department is performing well.last_img read more

DONEGAL HOTELIER SLAMS THE GATHERING AS ‘HOT AIR’

first_imgA leading Donegal hotelier and former councillor has slammed the Government for not backing The Gathering.Businessman Terry McEniff of the Mount Errigal Hotel described the initiative as “a lot of hot air from Dublin.”“I just haven’t seen the seeds being sewn from national level and we need more funding. “It’s a lot of hot air from Dublin that is not being backed up on the ground,” he said.Mr McEniff told the Shaun Doherty Show on Highland Radio that people like Paddy Harte, the chairman of The Gathering in Donegal, were doing their best.But he said they are not getting the support form national level.“But the problem is that Paddy Harte and his team can only do so much with limited resources. “I would call on the Government to put up more resources.“There is simply no sign of The Gathering growing on the ground and this is what needs to happen,” he said.He said he was still hopeful things will change and the event can be saved.“I’m hopeful things will happen but I don’t buy into it yet. I would call on people in central Government to give more money.“I think it is a great initiative but I think it needs a lot more money. “Two million euro would go a long way and would return in ten-fold,” he said.DONEGAL HOTELIER SLAMS THE GATHERING AS ‘HOT AIR’ was last modified: January 24th, 2013 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:Terry McEniffThe Gatheringlast_img read more
