Dembeles agent denies any indiscipline at Barcelona


first_imgWith all the negative press that Ousmane Dembele has been getting these past few days in Barcelona, his agent had to come out and defend him.The situation with French winger Ousmane Dembele in Barcelona has reached an important boiling point, there have been several reports of his complete indifference towards his club’s main cause and it has been proven through his late showings to games and training sessions.Just this Monday, the player got a whole new dig from his France manager and confirmed that Dembele does arrive late regularly but he always has an excuse to justify his actions.This really seems to be getting out of control for the player, who hadn’t gotten any type of defense from anybody in the most recent hours until his agent came out to defend him during an interview for RMC Sports.Moussa Sissoko, the former player who turned agent and now manages the careers of several players from his country, was asked about the situation with Dembele this Monday and his response hinted at a possible health-related problem that the player has been going through lately.The main reaction from Sissoko was to confirm that everything that’s being said about Ousmane is fake news, and he even went further.🔉Moussa Sissoko(Dembele’s agent): The criticism of Ousmane Dembele is overblown””All these criticisms make me laugh. “It had already begun with a so-called delay at the meeting before the Champions League match against Inter. pic.twitter.com/ALITdj3wbL— Blaugrana Nation (@Blaugranarealm) November 12, 2018The young star’s agent said that he has been in direct contact with several members of the club to assess the situation with his player, he revealed that the people at the club are very happy with him and there is no truth to everything that’s being said about the kid.“Ousmane is still working hard in a great club, the manager appreciates him, just like Deschamps does in the French National Team,” said Sissoko during the interview.“I also know that Abidal is very happy with everything he’s doing, he knows that he is training very well.”“All the criticism he is getting has a reason, we all know that he needs to improve on several things, but that is completely normal at his age.”“There is a lot of people who are on his toes, there was a rumor about him coming in late before a match, but the manager already clarified this situation. Now, he is suffering from gastroenteritis.”David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.“Although it’s true that he called the club late for that, he did it because he was very sick. The lad is only 20 years old and he plays for Barcelona, which is one of the biggest clubs in the world. Dembele had a great start of the season.”“People want to create controversy where there is none, but Dembele has the capacity to navigate through anything,” he added.🎙 [RMCSport] | Sissoko (Dembélés agent): “Barcelona is very happy with Ousmane, Valverde appreciates him and Abidal is also happy of how Dembélé is performing and training.” pic.twitter.com/TPujrlo7Bu— BarcaTimes (@BarcaTimes) November 12, 2018As of right now, Ousmane Dembele is part of the France squad for the last international break of 2018 where Les Bleus will play against The Netherlands and Uruguay.Dembele is considered an essential part of the squad that manager Didier Deschamps took to the World Cup final last summer, the Barcelona player wasn’t a prominent part of that squad and his intention is to change the manager’s mind in order to claim his position alongside other great players such as Antoine Griezmann or Kylian Mbappé.There is a massive contrast between the type of indiscipline that the PSG winger is showing, to the one that Dembele has been accused of lately.Having an important level of activity for France during the next couple of weeks, should be a good enough motivation for him to return to Barcelona with the objective of winning back the trust of all his teammates and the manager.The most worrisome part of all this, is that Dembele wasn’t cheap and losing a talent like him would be one of the Catalan club’s biggest mistakes.After all, we are talking about the most expensive player that has ever arrived in Barcelona.Rassemblés à Clairefontaine depuis ce midi, les Bleus ont effectué une séance légère en début de soirée. pic.twitter.com/WI8vWZV6Kr— Equipe de France ⭐⭐ (@equipedefrance) November 12, 2018What do you think Ousmane Dembele should do in order to gain back the trust from his club and country?

Giroud Higuains arrival darkens my Chelsea future


first_imgChelsea striker Olivier Giroud revealed that Gonzalo Higuain’s arrival certainly darkens his future and opened the door towards a potential return to France.The French World Cup winner left his homeland in 2012 for Arsenal after helping Montpellier beat Paris Saint-Germain to the Ligue 1 title.Last year then saw Giroud make a controversial switch to Arsenal’s London rivals Chelsea after a lack of game time at the Emirates Stadium.However, under coach Maurizio Sarri, Giroud has fared little better with just six starts in the Premier League this season.This has led to reports linking Giroud with a return to France with both Marseille and Lyon.Speaking to CANAL Foot Club, prior to Higuain’s arrival last week, Giroud indicated a return to Ligue 1 could happen even if his priority is to remain in England.“I will never make people unanimously satisfied with me,” admitted Giroud.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“There is a little part of regret and frustration. The public expects a goalscorer to score goals. I’m the fourth best goalscorer of French football and nobody can take that away from me.“The coach makes [Eden] Hazard play nine which is detrimental to strikers. But he is the best player I’ve ever played with.“If the club decides to get another striker, like Higuain, it will certainly darken my future at Chelsea.“I’ve never said no to a return to France. Lyon and Marseille are two great clubs. My priority is to stay in the Premier League though.”Higuain made his Chelsea debut on Sunday in their 3-0 FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday at Stamford Bridge and was replaced by Giroud in the 82nd-minute of the fourth-round clash.The Blues will next take a trip to the Vitality Stadium where they will face Bournemouth in a Premier League match on Wednesday with kick-off set for 20:45 (CET).last_img read more

When Should You Call 911 About A Bear Sighting


first_imgJeff Selinger, Kenai Peninsula Area Biologist:  “Bears are out moving around so you know pick up the garbage and the trash around the houses and minimize the potential of having a negative encounter with bears by being aware when you’re out in the woods.” Police say if people see a brown bear in town, they still should call 911 since that is more rare. Police say most bear sightings don’t need to be called in to 911. But police do want to hear about bears that are aggressive, sick, injured, orphaned or rummaging through trash. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department Game and Fish wants to warn the public that bears are on the move and to be “Bear Aware”. However, Police are urging people to stop calling emergency lines to report non-emergency bear sightings.

Tradeshows Post Moderate Growth in 2014


first_img “We are optimistic for the performance of the industry overall this year. Economic and job growth should continue to drive expansion in exhibitions,” says Allen Shaw, CEIR economist and chief economist for Global Economic Consulting Associates, Inc. The tradeshow industry continued its steady recovery following the market collapse in the late 2000s, according to the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR). The CEIR Index, a composite figure that accounts for net square footage (NSF), number of exhibitors, attendance and revenue of all major U.S. tradeshows, was up 1.8 percent last year. While the growth is slightly off the projected 2.0-percent return, it marks the fourth-consecutive year of positive gains. The group is forecasting continued improvement over the next three years, as well. Projections show 2.8-percent growth this year, followed by 2.4- and 2.0-percent gains in 2016 and 2017, respectively. Market-by-market performance varied considerably in 2014. Up 5.2 percent, financial, legal and real estate shows were at the top of the industry, followed by building, construction, home and repair (5.1 percent) and food (4.4 percent).

Amazon Prime Air gets more planes to boost oneday shipping to you


first_img 50 surprising things people are buying on Amazon right now 50 Photos Tags Share your voice 0 Amazon’s drones and robots want to take over your deliveries In April, Amazon said it was spending $800 million this quarter to bolster its shipping infrastructure to support the change. Last month, CEO Jeff Bezos attended a groundbreaking ceremony for Amazon’s new $1.5 billion air transportation hub in Hebron, Kentucky. Amazon has also built out a network of 10,000 truck trailers.Still, this work has come with new challenges for the company. Pilots working for Prime Air have regularly complained about poor pay and lousy working conditions. Also, FedEx this month decided not to renew its Express air shipping contract with Amazon, a move widely seen as a reaction to Amazon expanding its own shipping network. 1:32 Post a comment Before that Amazon Prime shipment gets to you, it’ll probably hitch a ride in a plane like this one. Amazon Amazon on Tuesday said it agreed to lease 15 more Boeing cargo planes from GE Capital Aviation Services, helping the e-commerce titan continue growing its air fleet so it can speed up Prime deliveries.The 15 Boeing 737-800 planes are in addition to the five planes Amazon already agreed to lease from GECAS earlier this year. The company has 42 planes flying today, and by 2021 it will operate 70 planes.Amazon expanded its fleet as part of its expensive effort to transition its Prime two-day shipping program to one day in the US.

MS Dhonis number 7 jersey to be retired Indian players might not


first_imgIn the upcoming Test championship, players will sport their numbers and name on the back of their white shirt. However, when it comes to the Indian team, it will not see two numbers – 10 and 7. While number 10, which is Sachin Tendulkar’s jersey, has been unofficially retired by the BCCI, MS Dhoni’s number 7 jersey might also not be opted for by the players.It is now learnt that most of the Indian players will opt for their limited-overs jersey numbers.”Virat is expected to wear 18 while Rohit wears 45. Most of the players will wear their respective ODI and T20 numbers. Since MS is no longer playing Test cricket, jersey No.7 is available but there is very little chance that any of the players will wear it,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on condition of anonymity.’BCCI’s gesture to pay tribute to Dhoni’ MS DhoniHannah Peters/Getty Images”People relate jersey No 7 with MS. The consignment of numbered jerseys will only arrive in the Caribbean only after ODI series,” he further added.It should be mentioned here, that a jersey cannot be officially retired, but the BCCI could opt for a move which pays respect to a player of MS Dhoni’s stature in Indian cricket. As far as his international career is concerned, the former Indian captain is not part of India’s limited-overs squads for the West Indies tour. There are speculations over his retirement, but statements by few BCCI officials have suggested that the wicket-keeper is not yet keen to move on.Former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin too said that communication between the selectors and Dhoni will be vital as he enters the final lap of his career.”About big player, the player is also taken into confidence and spoken to. I feel some decision will come. Otherwise, people will keep writing that (he) should retire, not retire. Because, no statement has come from Dhoni,” Azhar said. File photo of MS DhoniSydney Seshibedi/Gallo Images/Getty ImagesHe also said that if the wicket-keeper batsman is fit and wants to continue playing, he should be backed to come good.”My opinion is that if he is fit and playing well, he should play. If he is fit and performance is good, he can play. Sometimes what happens is, interest is lost after playing so much cricket. If his interest is still 100 per cent, I feel, he is good player and he should play,” he further added.Even as the Indian team travels to West Indies, Dhoni has opted to train with the Territorial Army battalion of the parachute regiment and this request has been approved by Indian Army chief Bipin Rawat.last_img read more


Babies And Baseball A Dad Plants The Seeds For A Shared Love


first_imgPhoto illustration by Claire Harbage/NPR and Paige Vickers for NPRPete Van Vleet plays with his daughter, Madeline, 6, and his son, Jack, 9 months. Van Vleet is a baseball superfan; his favorite team is the Houston Astros. Madeline’s is the Detroit Tigers because she generally likes the teams with animal mascots.Pete Van Vleet of Ashland, Va., is a Houston Astros fan – and was well before the team’s World Series win this year. They were his team back when they were bad. As part of Morning Edition‘s exploration of how fandoms help shape identity, Van Vleet explains how his love for the Astros has been a big part of him since childhood. Even today, if he needs a mood boost, he listens to game highlights from his youth. Can a passion be inherited? Now a father, he’s excited at the idea of sharing his love of baseball with his two young children, Jack, an infant, and Madeline, his 6-year-old daughter and budding Detroit Tigers fan. Here, in his own words, Van Vleet talks about how his fandom has roots that are deeply connected to his parenting of Jack and Madeline.This has been lightly edited for clarity.A team a person roots for says a lot about that person. When I was growing up, there was no team around us, so it was up to me to pick my own team. And the Astros had the coolest uniforms. They played in the Astrodome, which was just fantastic. And they suffered.Claire Harbage/NPRJack, 9 months, sucks on a baseball that was sent by the New York Mets.I will tell this quick story: I used to play baseball by myself in the backyard. I would pretend I was the Astros, and the team would lose. Even in my own imagination the team would lose.Soon after Jack was born I decided to write a letter to every team to ask them, “Why should my son choose you to be a fan?”Claire Harbage/NPRTeams sent souvenirs to Jack, some of which he still needs to grow into. Dirt from Fenway, batting gloves from the Rays, a truck from the Mets and a cap from the Nationals.Eighteen major league teams sent us back letters or emails or packages, and it might include a onesie or a hat or a nice little toy and stickers.I just want him to pick the team that in his heart is going to grab his heart, going to capture his imagination and just going to steal him away for life.Claire Harbage/NPRVan Vleet helps Madeline put on her Detroit Tigers ball cap.I took Madeline to Baltimore to see the Tigers play. We went to two games. The first game was a night game. And around the fifth inning she just kind of crawled into my lap, and I just kind of had to tell myself, “Remember this now. Remember this feeling and this moment now because five years from now, maybe less, she’s not going to do this.” And I know that’s part of growing up, but at least we’ll have that together now.Claire Harbage/NPRVan Vleet kisses Jack as they head inside the house.What I think drives people to fandom, I think there’s some escapism to it. Whatever is going on in my life now, or Madeline’s life, that all kind of lifts off from your shoulder when you enter this cathedral of a ballpark. And for maybe a couple of hours on a summer night, the problems aren’t as big, your worries aren’t as burdensome. You can just enjoy life for that little bit.Dave Blanchard (@blanchardd) is a producer with Morning Edition.
