Juan Mata insists Fernandes, Ighalo have the magic to take Man Utd to Europe

first_img Fernandes secured a £68million move to Manchester United after agreeing on a five-and-a-half-year deal last month, but not after months of speculation. Read Also:Be creative, Mata tells Ighalo, others United will pay £46.6million up-front, with a further £8.5m dependent on Champions League qualification and appearances by the player. The final bill could rise by a further £12.7million based on a number of further clauses based on Fernandes’ achievements over the long term. The Portuguese star has made a really positive start to life in a United shirt and Jaap Stam listed five reasons why he draws comparisons with a certain United legend following Monday night’s win at Chelsea. Ighalo, meanwhile, has arrived on a six-month loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua but has already been told by OleGunnar Solskjaer he can make the move permanent should he impress. And Mata has fully backed the Red Devils’ decision to sign the duo and reckons both can prove excellent additions to the squad. Juan Mata is confident that  Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo could hand Manchester United the expected impetus to boost the club’s quest for a top-four finish in the Premier League. Speaking to United Review, Mata said: “We welcomed them both. Bruno is a very good player, we all know that, and a very nice guy also. “We have been in contact a lot. He speaks Spanish mixed with Portuguese which is not very different. So he’s a good guy and I think he’s settling in very well. “He’s found his place in Manchester [to live] and also with the help of Fred, Andreas and Diogo [Dalot] he’s enjoying it. They’ve helped him a lot. “Hopefully he can help us in this second part of the season and I’m sure he will because he’s a quality player.” Ighalo, meanwhile, will come up against his former club in Watford on Sunday afternoon and will hope for a further chance to impress after two substitute appearances so far. And Mata reckons his past experiences in the Premier League will make him a solid acquisition for United in the closing months of the season. “Odion has experience of playing in the Premier League and hopefully he will score many goals for us from now until the end of the season,” Mata added. “As the manager said, he’s a good character as well and he’s got a good personality which has fitted straight into the dressing room. “The better he does, then the better for us – and I wish him all the best.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Promoted Content8 Most Beautiful Chinese Women6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually True9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooWhat Happens To Your Brain When You Play Too Much Video Games?7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The Universe10 Stargazing Locations To ‘Connect With Nature’The Adorable Model For Simba In The Lion King RemakeBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksWhat Is A Black Hole And Is It Dangerous For Us All?last_img read more

FIFA World Cup 2022: Qatar on track to welcome the world

first_img The compact nature of the first FIFA World Cup  in the Middle East and Arab world will ensure that fans of all 32 teams are always within reach of the eight stunning stadiums, the FIFA Fan Fest, some world-class museums, Qatar’s desert dunes and, most importantly, each other. While the eagerly awaited tournament might still feel a long way off for fans, 136 out of 900 qualifying matches have already been played, and the tournament infrastructure can be seen rapidly evolving in and around Doha. Two stadiums are fully operational: Khalifa International and Al Janoub. Three more venues – Education City, Al Rayyan and Al Bayt – will be inaugurated this year, with the remaining three set to be launched well in advance of the tournament. When it comes to tournament preparations, Qatar and FIFA have been scrutinising the lessons learned from the FIFA Club World Cup, held in December last year, and which will return to the country later in 2020. According to the local authorities, the tournament brought over 50,000 international fans into the country. The event’s official fan zone welcomed 43,000 visitors over the course of the tournament. “Test events give us a great opportunity to assess new stadiums, work with authorities, integrate and train the teams. That all provides us with an important insight into planning for the World Cup. And as we move closer, planning becomes more operational. The joint venture team we have in Qatar is increasing in size, several teams have already visited Qatar to inspect training facilities, and we are bringing stakeholders closer – our Commercial Affiliates were in Doha last year, and the main broadcasters earlier this year,” said FIFA’s Chief Tournaments & Events Officer and FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 LLC (Q22) Managing Director, Colin Smith. FIFA World Cup 2022 hosts, Qatar are set to welcome the world, as they intensified in their preparations for the biggest show on Earth with  exactly  1,000 days to go.

We are determined to ensure that the first World Cup in the Middle East and Arab world will set a benchmark in the history of hosting major sporting events.” Brand-new metro lines have also been delivered and successfully transported over 50,000 fans across three games during the FIFA Club World Cup. New roads and training sites are being completed, the airport expanded and permanent and temporary accommodation will be delivered with the aim of coping with demand while also considering post-event use. “With 1,000 days to go, Qatar stands where no other host did before. Qatar wants to amaze the world and is on track to achieve it,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino. “The FIFA World Cup 2022 will be a breakthrough from a social and cultural perspective.

Mashl dominates Hall of Fame Night feature

first_imgBy Tom WagnerLUXEMBURG, Wis. (July 31) – Friday was Hall of Fame night at Luxemburg Speedway and perfect night for one of the track’s stars of the past to shine again.Mike Mashl, a Luxemburg Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified champion nearly two decades ago, powered away to his first feature win of the season on a night that included the induction of three new members into the Speedway’s Hall of Fame.When he ran the circuits full time, Mashl was one of the top IMCA Modified competitors in the area, with a resume that included the 1997 Luxemburg championship.  Back behind the wheel on a limited basis now, he was making only his second run at Luxemburg this season.The early feature pace was set by a guy working on his fourth decade of competition, Dave Zeit­ler, who led the first two laps before a slip high on the second turn of the third lap allowed Mashl to shoot by on the low line and take command.For the most part, that was the last challenge he faced on the way to his first Luxemburg feature win of the year.  Focus shifted back in the field as title contenders Shawn Kilgore and Josh Long began to work forward.It was a steady march for Kilgore, taking fourth on the ninth lap, then third one lap later. He passed Zeitler for runner-up honors with four to go but without the aid of a caution to erase Mashl’s margin, he had no chance to mount a serious challenge for the win.Long passed Zeitler with two laps to go to take third.Also taking home trophies on the night were Barry Van Straten in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Todd Wiese in the Karl Chevrolet Northern Sport Mods and Cody Junio in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.The three new Hall members were inducted by promoter Gene Mathu at intermission. The 2015 class includes Ken Tebon, Joe Verdegan and Mike Rohr.last_img read more

Thousands of Floridians File Damage Claims from Hurricane Dorian

first_imgHundreds of South Floridians joined thousands of others across the state in filing insurance claims for damage from Hurricane Dorian, even though the storm did not make landfall here.According to the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation, about 4,000 claims had been submitted statewide through September 16. Of that number, 908, or 23 percent, were filed in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties.Michael Peltier, spokesman of the state-owned Citizens Property Insurance Corp., says, “Most of the damage we are seeing is from downed limbs and that sort of thing. Generally speaking, if something [tree limb, fence, etc.] was already weak, it could sustain damage under Dorian conditions.”The information released by the state does not offer any details on the type or severity of the claims.Dorian remained about 100 miles offshore and brought wind gusts up to 41 mph through South Florida, and 44 mph around Jacksonville and Daytona Beach.Peltier explains that although sustained winds were lower along the coast when Dorian was near, a gust of wind is all it takes to break a tree limb over a house.More than half of the insurance claims filed – 2,288 of 3,961 – were for residential damage, while 156 were for commercial property damage.Another 1,500 were for miscellaneous coverage, which includes fire, marine, auto, aircraft, industrial, crop and surplus lines.last_img read more

Convicted Rapist Harvey Weinstein Is Still NOT in Jail

first_imgConvicted sex offender, Harvey Weinstein, remains hospitalized at New York’s Bellevue Hospital after being convicted of rape in the third degree and committing a criminal sexual act in the first degree, the Guardian reported on Friday.Prior to being sent to the hospital by New York City Department of Corrections officials, Weinstein was set to be held at Rikers Island in New York until his March 11 sentencing.Weinstein was hospitalized after experiencing high blood pressure and heart palpitations, CNN reported earlier this week. His lawyer Donna Rotunno previously claimed Weinstein had “significant medical issues”—including a need to use a walker because of an unsuccessful back operation following a car accident last year, as his attorneys said in court.“He’s under the care of five doctors currently. He’s dealing with the remnants of his back operation, which was not successful. He’s in need of the walker,” the defense team said this week, adding, “He takes a list of different medicines. Judge, he’s currently receiving shots in his eyes so he does not go blind.”Weinstein will serve anywhere from 5 to 29 years in prison following the jury’s ruling this week. (Criminal sexual act in the first degree carries with it a minimum prison term of 5 years and a maximum of 25 years; rape in the third degree does not have a minimum sentence associated with a conviction, but includes a maximum prison term of four years.)On Thursday, Weinstein’s lawyer Arthur Aidala told the Hollywood Reporter that his client was focused on appealing the verdict and had provided Aidala with some guidance while at the hospital. “He was the Harvey that I know,” Aidala said of the convicted rapist. “He asked a lot of relevant questions about what’s happening, what the next steps are. He gave some directions about how to proceed. I needed some directions on how to proceed. He just was looking forward to my visit [on Friday] so we can go over things face-to-face in more detail.”After Weinstein was accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women (claims he has long denied), his conviction was hailed as a significant legal victory for the #MeToo movement.last_img read more

We won’t underestimate that,” added Labbadia, who was appointed Hertha boss in April when Jurgen Klinsmann quit after just a few months in charge.Tousart, who was reportedly also being courted by Tottenham Hotspur, RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, was one of four signings Hertha made when they spent around €80 million in January.Poland forward Krzysztof Piatek, who scored in Saturday’s defeat to Frankfurt, came from AC Milan, Brazil under-23 striker Matheus Cunha from Leipzig and Argentina midfielder Santiago Ascacibar from Stuttgart.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Hertha Berlin coach Bruno Labbadia has said that they are in no hurry to give a Bundesliga debut to new recruit Lucas Tousart, who has barely played since scoring for Lyon against Juventus in the Champions League in February.“We must not forget that he hasn’t played a game for well over two and a half months,” said Labbadia, who met with Tousart in Berlin on Sunday.Tousart, who joined Hertha from Lyon in January and was loaned back to the French club, scored the winner in a shock 1-0 win over Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus in the last 16, first-leg of the Champions Leaguelast_img read more
