De Bruyne: Rodri a perfect fit for City

first_imgKevin De Bruyne believes Manchester City new boy Rodri is the “perfect fit” for Pep Guardiola’s defending Premier League champions.Spain international Rodri became City’s record signing when he joined from Atletico Madrid in July.He made his competitive debut as City retained the Community Shield with a penalty shoot-out triumph over Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday, turning in an assured display. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Guardiola has been searching for a long-term heir to Fernandinho to operate at the base of his midfield for some time, with interest in Fred, Jorginho and Frenkie de Jong ultimately failing to bear fruit.But De Bruyne feels Rodri has acclimatised impressively to a pivotal position within City’s tactical setup and, at 23, aligns with the broader long-term plan of the club’s transfer policy.”He’s a perfect fit for us. I think the way that we did transfers the last years add up,” he said, with Guardiola’s men now preparing for the start of their Premier League title defence at West Ham on Saturday.”You see a lot of young talent coming in willing to play our style. I think that’s what they’re looking for and he’s a perfect fit for us.”A composed competitive debut so far from Rodri  1-0   #mancity pic.twitter.com/25wT2QFcxb — Manchester City (@ManCity) August 4, 2019 At Wembley, Rodri attempted more passes than any of his City team-mates, with 62 at a 91.9 per cent completion rate, and was level with defensive duo Nicolas Otamendi and Oleksandr Zinchenko for the most touches (74).At almost 6ft 3ins, the former Villarreal man is an obvious asset to a largely diminutive side Guardiola famously claimed has to “go to the church to pray” when they concede a set piece .He won all of his aerial duels against Liverpool and gained possession nine times – again the highest figure in that metric.”I think he’s the perfect [defensive midfielder] for the way we want to play,” De Bruyne continued.”Our DM is a really difficult position. You need certain players for it and there’s not a lot of people who can do both sides of it.”Obviously we’re very good on the ball. You can’t just be defensive, you have to be offensive also.”One down!   pic.twitter.com/rEqJvukpu7 — Kevin De Bruyne (@DeBruyneKev) August 4, 2019 Working well in tandem with Rodri, De Bruyne turned in an all-action display as City were the better side in the first-half, taking a 12th-minute lead through Raheem Sterling.It was enough for the Belgium international to be named man of the match and, although he credited Rodri’s influence, he also cited operating somewhere close to full fitness being a factor, after two medial knee ligament injuries limited his impact during his club’s treble-winning season.”It wouldn’t be different with Fernandinho there,” he added. “It’s maybe a difference with last year because I’m feeling physically better than I did last year. I needed more time.”I think the way he’s performed in pre-season and in training has been phenomenal. To be the new guy and still be on this level is a good sign.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

On the Front Line | Books

first_imgOn the Front Line | BooksAn account of the author’s time in the army, the book is strewn with his hunger for diversity in all its forms.advertisement Saeed Naqvi New Delhi January 11, 2019 ISSUE DATE: January 21, 2019UPDATED: January 11, 2019 18:05 IST The Sarkari Mussalman: The Life and Travails of a Soldier-Educationist The memoirs of Lt. Gen. Zameer Uddin Shah; Konark Publishers Rs 699; 220 pages.I was reading Lt. Gen. Zameer Uddin Shah’s memoirs, The Sarkari Mussalman, when the controversy about his brother, actor Naseeruddin Shah’s allegedly anti-national utterances erupted.The irony was stark. Here was the elder brother giving glorious accounts of his regiment in the celebrated battle of Longewala in the Jaisalmer sector duringI was reading Lt. Gen. Zameer Uddin Shah’s memoirs, The Sarkari Mussalman, when the controversy about his brother, actor Naseeruddin Shah’s allegedly anti-national utterances erupted.The irony was stark. Here was the elder brother giving glorious accounts of his regiment in the celebrated battle of Longewala in the Jaisalmer sector during the 1971 war with Pakistan and the younger brother was being taken to task for the simple reason that those utterances were by someone who carries a Muslim name. The scale of Indian victory in Longewala is obvious from the number of soldiers killed: two Indians and 200 Pakistanis.Well, Naseer’s statement was not about soldiers but about a police officer shot dead by a mob outside the Bulandshahr police station. His point that more is made these days of a dead cow than a dead police officer incurred the wrath of the troll mob.Naseer’s other anxiety concerns people who are accepting mixed marriages as a norm. Though still a tiny minority, numbers in the metropolitan centres are growing. The affection with which Zameer, whose own marriage is conventional, mentions his sister-in-law Ratna Pathak Shah, confirms my impression of him as being quite as open-minded as Naseer.I know I must appear to have deviated from the book, but I have not because the book is strewn with Zameer’s hunger for diversity in all its forms.The man’s love for cricket, hockey, tennis, golf, angling and water sports qualifies him to be encapsulated in a quip: “Was everything by starts and nothing long.”advertisementBut that demeans his personality. It is a satirical way of describing a man of many parts. He writes with deep regret on how his switch from the cavalry to the camel regiment robbed him of his chance to play polo.Accidental insights are scattered throughout. As defence attaché in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, Zameer travelled to several regional countries, including Yemen. During a visit to Najran, on the Saudi-Yemen border, he was intrigued to find a Pakistani garrison in division strength. It turned out they were posted near the Red Sea, during the US’s Operation Desert Storm in 1991. The garrison’s apparent reluctance to participate in offensive operations against Iraq was cause for suspicion in Riyadh. In 1997, the garrison was withdrawn. Zameer then mentions the return of Pakistani troops to Saudi Arabia. This probably refers to Gen. Raheel Sharif, who retired as army chief in 2016. In their desperation, the Saudis had sought military help from Pakistan for action in Yemen in 2015, but the request was rejected by Pakistan’s Parliament. An official military participation would have recoiled on Pakistan diplomatically and they would have been quite as isolated in the world as the Saudis are. However, relentless pressure from Riyadh forced them to find an ingenious route to help the Saudis. Gen. (retd) Sharif now serves as chief of the Islamic Military Alliance the Saudis have forged for their military adventures.Zameer had a colourful innings in the army. His administrative experience stood him in good stead when he was elevated as vice chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University, with which his family had long associations.It is difficult to say whether he prides himself more in having led the army to halt the Gujarat pogrom of 2002, or in his role at the university. All one can say with a degree of certainty is this: he had a ball in life commensurate with the hard work he put into whatever he was tasked with.Part of The Sarkari Mussalman’s narrative echoes through his brother’s recent travails. Sensitivity on that score lurks in the pages, even in the communal outburst of colleagues who have momentarily forgotten that Zameer is present, but none of it allows the book to lapse into bad taste.You’ve reached your article limitSign in to keep reading India TodaySign inSign up NOW to get:Premium content on Aaj Tak HD ChannelUnrestricted access to India Today magazine contentGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Mrs. Cox said once the Green Paper is tabled in Parliament, “then we will go big on communication… both in the private and public sectors”.The National Investment Policy aims to establish a comprehensive policy framework that will guide the development, administration and monitoring of the investment community, to ensure cohesion among all related initiatives, programmes, incentives regime and stakeholder contributions. Vice President of JAMPRO, Shullette Cox, said this is aimed at updating the document for presentation to the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, which has portfolio responsibility for JAMPRO.last_img read more

Home prices continue to climb in BC despite dramatic sales decline BCREA

first_imgVANCOUVER – Home sales in British Columbia plummeted last month compared with March of last year, but the B.C. Real Estate Association says the decline was not reflected in prices.Sales figures released by the association for March show 7,409 homes changed hands last month, a decline of 24.6 per cent over March 2017, while average property prices climbed 5.3 per cent over the same period.A news release from the association says the average home sold for $726,930 last month and it blames persistently high prices on the lack of properties available for sale.It says total active listings have changed very little since March of 2017, nudging a 12-year low across B.C.Association chief economist Cameron Muir forecasts prices will continue to climb as long as the trend continues.He is also critical of what he calls the “burdensome” mortgage qualification rules that took effect in January, saying they have had the “predictable effect of swiftly curbing housing demand.”“You simply cannot pull as much as 20 per cent of the purchasing power away from conventional mortgage borrowers and not create a downturn in consumer demand,” Muir says in the release.B.C. home sales in March tallied $5.39 billion, a 20.6 per cent tumble compared with March 2017, while the association says sales dollar volumes since January slipped 1.7 per cent to $13.9 billion, compared with the first quarter of last year.Residential sales also fell 9.4 per cent during the first three months of this year, while the association reports the average price of a home increased 8.5 per cent to just over $732,000 during the same period.last_img read more

Ohio State mens tennis wins 7th straight against a ranked opponent beats

Senior Peter Kobelt returns the ball during a match against Texas A&M Feb. 9 at the Varsity Tennis Center. OSU won, 4-3.Credit: Alice Bacani / News director at BuckeyeTVAfter a whirlwind week that saw it defeat four top 15-ranked opponents in four days and rise to No. 1 in the ITA team rankings, the Ohio State men’s tennis team returned to action this weekend in another highly anticipated match at No. 10 Notre Dame.Playing in their first match after winning the ITA Indoor National Championship Feb. 17, the top ranked Buckeyes (14-0, 0-0) traveled to South Bend, Ind., Saturday to take on the Fighting Irish (10-3, 0-1).There might have been a bit of a hangover from the previous week’s success as the Buckeyes started out flat in doubles play.Redshirt-sophomore Chris Diaz and redshirt-freshman Ralf Steinbach were off first, losing to the Irish duo of senior Ryan Bandy and sophomore Eric Schnurrenberger 7-5.The Buckeyes’ No. 2-ranked duo of senior Peter Kobelt and redshirt-junior Kevin Metka evened things up with a 9-7 win over the No. 17 ranked team of senior Greg Andrews and sophomore Alex Lawson. The Irish captured the point shortly after though, as senior Billy Pecor and freshman Josh Hagar beat OSU’s redshirt-junior Hunter Callahan and freshman Herkko Pollanen, 8-6.After riding the doubles teams hard last weekend, and only having lost the doubles point twice in their previous 13 matches, the Buckeyes knew they had to shore up a few things up in singles play.OSU got the message, winning the first set in four of their matches. Steinbach fell quickly to Bandy, 6-3, 6-3, to give the Irish a 2-0 lead, but it was all Buckeyes from that point on.Callahan earned the Buckeyes’ first point, winning in straight sets against Schnurrenberger, 6-4, 6-4. It was his 12th consecutive win.Diaz fought back from being down 5-2 in his first set to force a tiebreaker with sophomore Quentin Monaghan. Momentum was all his at that point as he won the break and went on to win 7-6, 6-4.Metka went back in forth with freshman Eddy Covalschi before winning in a third set tiebreak, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6, and leaving the Buckeyes one win away from clinching the match.No. 23 Kobelt was the one who provided that point. In his match against No. 37 ranked Andrews, both players held serve every single time with each set heading to a tiebreak. After losing the first break, Kobelt took the next two, clinching the match with a 6-7, 7-6, 7-6 victory.“It’s always exciting to clinch match point for your team, especially against a very good Notre Dame team,” Kobelt said after the match.It was Notre Dame’s first home loss of the season and also the Buckeyes’ seventh straight win this season against a top 25 team.The Buckeyes are next scheduled to head to Indiana Monday to open Big Ten play with a match against the Hoosiers. The match is set to start at 2 p.m. read more

Chelsea close to stunning double scoop for coach player

first_imgChelsea look set to pinch Napoli midfielder Jorginho from rivals Manchester City this summer, claims Gianluca Di MarzioWhile it has been City who were expected to sign the Italy international following long talks with Napoli since the end of last season, they have struggled to agree on a final transfer fee with the Serie A club.City boss Pep Guardiola had hoped to have Jorginho signed in time for the start of pre-season with the rest of the club’s non-World Cup players for this week, but it appears that he will now miss out on his top transfer target altogether.The Catalan coach has only ever been interested in signing new players completely committed to joining his club, which is why he elected to allow Alexis Sanchez to join City’s locals rivals Manchester United in January.Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.In light of this, Chelsea have now leapfrogged City in the race for Jorginho and view him as the perfect compromise with Napoli.The Blues are hoping that by paying more for Jorginho, they can convince the Italian club to part with former head coach Maurizio Sarri after refusing to pay a huge compensation bill for his release from his contract.While City had only been willing to splash out on £45m for Jorginho, Chelsea are ready to spend up to £57m.last_img read more

ASA Calls on House to Bring Unified Farm Bill Back to Floor

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) joined with more than 530 agriculture, conservation, nutrition, rural development, finance, forestry, energy and crop insurance organizations today in a letter urging House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to bring the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013 back to the House floor for a vote as soon as possible. In the letter, ASA and its fellow organizations noted the benefits of a unified farm bill and cautioned that nutrition and farm program bills may fail to pass as standalone bills. ASA President Danny Murphy, a soybean farmer from Canton, Miss., issued the following statement on the effort:“In our nation’s capital, where so many efforts are poisoned by party-line bickering, the farm bill has long been a resoundingly bipartisan symbol of both parties’ ability to come together to pass legislation that benefits all Americans. The farm bill supports our farmers and ranchers, and rural Americans; but it also helps our friends and neighbors in urban and suburban communities as well. That responsibility—to provide for all Americans—is one that farmers take seriously. We are proud to stand alongside such a wide range of organizations to call on the House to recommit to passing a single, unified farm bill this month.”For a full transcript of the letter, please click here.last_img read more

Kremlin Trump Invited Putin To White House But No Date Set

first_img Share Alexei Nikolsky/APRussian President Vladimir Putin gives his annual state of the nation address in Moscow on Thursday.An aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday that U.S. President Donald Trump invited the Russian leader to the White House when they spoke by telephone last month, but the two countries haven’t started any preparations for such a visit.Trump and Putin had a telephone conversation on March 20 in which Trump congratulated Putin on winning the Russian presidential election two days earlier. The White House and the Kremlin said at the time the two presidents discussed meeting in person.Trump specifically invited Putin to the White House during the call, Putin aide Yuri Ushakov told Russian news agencies Monday.However, their governments didn’t have time to start arranging a meeting before the United States joined Britain and more than two dozen allies in sanctioning Russia over the nerve-agent poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in England, Ushakov said.White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Trump invited Putin to Washington during the call, but said the White House was among “a number of potential venues” the two leaders discussed for a bilateral meeting.“As the President himself confirmed on March 20, hours after his last call with President Putin, the two had discussed a bilateral meeting in the ‘not-too-distant future’ at a number of potential venues, including the White House,” Sanders said, adding that the administration had no further comment on the matter.Some Republican lawmakers criticized Trump for making the congratulatory call to Putin. Trump defended his decision on Twitter, saying President Barack Obama did the same in 2012.During the call, Trump didn’t raise Russia’s meddling in U.S. elections or its suspected involvement in the poisoning of the former spy and his daughter in Britain.last_img read more
