Great players like him can adapt to any situation.”“He has the qualities to play in any team. His future depends on the ongoing project at Inter and the financial condition of the club and it also depends on the will of the player.”“It is important for them to reach the Champions League. Because Inter has been without the Champions League for too much time now and that is not positive.”

Ahead of Champions League match between Inter and PSV, Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti responded to questions from journalists at the Suning Training Centre.Spalletti said during a Press conference as quoted in club’s website, that the match with PSV is the most important ever since he joined the club as a coach.“This match is the most important one since I’ve been here and it represents the next step that follows on from Lazio vs. Inter on 20 May. Since I’ve been here, we’ve got the points and put in the performances that we needed.”“ Now, we’re here to play for a spot in the last 16 on the final day of the group stage. We’re all aware of the importance of this game, the players are working really well.”Lukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“We know that qualification won’t just depend on our result but I’d imagine that those at Barcelona would be offended if we continue to doubt their professionalism. They’re a serious club with real professionals, we can’t look at their game.”“ We need to only focus on the PSV game and it’s important to remember that they were in a higher pot of the draw than us.”“Inter certainly hasn’t lost a sense of conviction even if we showed some small lapses in concentration in the last game over the course of the 90 minutes.”“ We’ve played really strong teams like Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus of late and we’ve played on an equal footing. Today, the difference between us and teams of that standard is consistency over the course of an entire season.”

Claudio Ranieri does not lack the motivation when it comes to playing Manchester United as he bids to end their unbeaten run.The Red Devils have not lost any of their 10 matches since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became Mourinho’s interim successor in December.The Norwegian has received plaudits for his style of play which has seen United back in contention for a Champions League position just two points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea.In contrast, Saturday’s opponent Fulham are in a relegation battle and have won only once in their last five league games, but Ranieri fancies his side’s chances.“We must be positive and have to fight,” Ranieri told reporters. “If we don’t fight and lose, you lose before you play.“It’s not tragedy, it’s football. We used to fight. If the opponent is better, well done to them. I want to see my players fight until the end. My fans will be happy seeing the players fight for every ball.“Sooner or later they [United] have to lose. Why not against us?”Ranieri admits Solskjaer is doing enough to land the job on a full-time basis, despite acknowledging United’s unbeaten run has an end date.He wants “soldiers”.Claudio Ranieri says his Fulham side for ready for a fight as Manchester United arrive at Craven Cottage this weekend.Liverpool 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.👉 https://t.co/u5eJ5D4KOf pic.twitter.com/acjfJNwEit— BBC Sport (@BBCSport) February 7, 2019“He deserves it at the moment,” Ranieri disclosed via FourFourTwo. “He shows the players are with him. Manchester has changed the mentality, why not?“The result speaks for him. All victories and one draw, the players change their mind, more involved and they are fighting together.”The Italian boss is wary of the threat of Anthony Martial knowing him fully well in his Monaco days.“I signed him for £5 million, it was good business,” the Italian said. “He was very fantastic. I watched him during an under-22s match against Monaco [playing for Lyon] and was impressed.“When the chance came to buy him, I said, ‘Take this guy, because for me he could have a good future’. He came to Manchester and well done to him.“He’s very good. He can dribble, [he’s] strong, fast. There are so many good players [in the United team] – [Paul] Pogba, [Marcus] Rashford, so many. We must be concentrated and strong, positive to show our personality during the game.”

J.C. Hutchinson, says come next year, work will begin to bring an end to the importation of tomatoes, carrots, red peas, thyme and green gungo peas, through increased production.He noted that so far this year, farmers have produced 90 per cent of the Irish potatoes consumed by Jamaicans, adding that this crop, along with onions and Scotch bonnet peppers are in a pilot programme for increased production.“If by March next year we see where the pilot does well, we are going to bring all these crops into the programme (to reduce importation). So, all those of you who need a push-start, we will assist you,” the Minister told farmers at a workshop on Irish potato and onion production, in Christiana, Manchester, on October 12.“We intend to stop the importation of these crops… . We will help you get going to make sure that agriculture grows,” Mr. Hutchinson said.The Minister congratulated farmers in the parish for leading in Irish potato production, and encouraged them to produce more. He noted that the Government has entered into partnerships on their behalf to meet that goal, adding that farmers who had a difficulty financing all inputs for planting Irish potato would benefit from the ‘agricultural push-start programme’, with Fersan and H&L Agro providing fertiliser and pesticides, respectively.Mr. Hutchinson explained that farmers need only prepare their land and provide labour, and then pay for the inputs after reaping the crops.“But, you have to register with the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) and you need to form small organisations among yourselves to benefit. You must run this as a business,” he emphasised.The Minister told the farmers that they would also have to sign a contract that would ensure that they get the same price for the produce, whether the price went up or down. He informed that dishonest farmers who sold or consumed the Irish potato seeds, would be excluded from the programme in the future.
Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez revealed that he doesn’t enjoy Jose Mourinho’s style of football and intends to never deploy his coaching methods in a teamThe Portuguese coach has enjoyed a tremendously successful managerial career that has seen him taste success with FC Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United.However, Mourinho’s choice of defensive tactics have often come under scrutiny over recent years with critics lamenting his decision to not employ a more positive style of football.While acknowledging that Mourinho has produced truly world-class teams in the past, Xavi insisted that he would not encourage the same coaching methods if he were to become a manager himself.“Mourinho is a very defensive coach. Playing against his Inter wasn’t easy,” the Al-Sadd midfielder told Corriere dello Sport.Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“That’s his style and he put it into practice with Chelsea and Real Madrid. He cares about all the details, he closes the gaps and he doesn’t give you space.“I like a different kind of football. I’m not criticising, but I don’t enjoy playing football in that way and my teams will never have that attitude.”Xavi’s former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola recently refused to rule out a switch to the Serie A one day.“Guardiola is not just wonderful football with big performers: he cares a lot about the details of defensive movements and his teams are very organised,” Xavi said.“If he has said that he wants to try an experience in Italian football, you can be certain that, sooner or later, he will come. And, given what I know about him, he won’t just come to take part.”

I think it is a big compliment for him. It shows that he is in terrific form and he is in a great place,” Gerrard told Sky.“In terms of me, nothing changes. I love working with the player, he puts a smile on my face when I am out of bed and on my way to training to work with him because he is such a top, top player.”Morelos who signed a new deal with Rangers last September recently revealed to a Colombian radio station he was aware of the potential suitors monitoring his progress.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.But Gerrard claimed he was delighted with the recognition, even if it increases the chances of him leaving.🎥 Steven Gerrard spoke about Alfredo Morelos at today’s press conference. pic.twitter.com/QKMH02G0xg— Rangers Football Club (@RangersFC) March 7, 2019He added: “The interest and the speculation is not going to go away.“That is something that we have to live with but we certainly see it is a compliment because I would be more concerned and more worried if no one was interested in my players.”

Upon completion, the bridge could be the largest public art display in the region. On Tuesday, port commissioners approved more than $480,000 for phase two, in which British artist Peter Fink will fine-tune his design, with community input.Some of the money will also go to Caltrans, which owns the span, to review the design and prepare the environmental and coastal documents that are required.The project was first conceived in 2006 but stalled because of the downturn in the economy. Port Commissioner Marshall Merrifield who helped to revive the project last year said the funding will not require taxpayer dollars but will be raised through private donations.Merrifield said in the last few months, he has collected more than $1 million in cash and pledges.“It’s been a wonderful response to see businesses and people around town step up to support this,” the commissioner said.Yvonne Wise, the Port’s curator of public art said the Port initially looked at a number of bayside locations, described by Wise as ”kind of a land space to install a monumental artwork.” Those efforts were later abandoned.“We knew that just wasn’t right because we wanted the artwork to be visible from the five port cities as well, something that would be an artwork for the entire region. It was a wonderful surprise when the committee stumbled upon the opportunity to light the bridge,” Wise said.The LED lights on the roadway and bridge supports will be in different colors and vary according to how they’re programmed.“What we can expect is the lighting is not going to be static. It’s going to be dynamic and changing at different times of the year,” Wise said. “The design also calls for the lights to run through solar power.” According to Merrifield, “This will be the first artistically lit building or bridge in the United States that’s sustainably powered.”The Port is inviting public participation in the lighting project. It will be hosting a series of community meetings to help the artistic team gather more design ideas from the public.“The color palette is infinite,” Wise said. “Peter (the artist) is going to come up with a lighting scenario by working with the community.”Merrifield said a GoFundMe page is being developed to encourage online donations. The Port wants to have the lighting ready by the end of 2019, in time to mark the bridge’s 50th birthday. Posted: August 8, 2017 August 8, 2017 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter

WASHINGTON — When it comes to budgets, balance is in the eye of the congressional beholder.To House Republicans, it means a balanced budget in a decade, achieved by $4.6 trillion in spending cuts and without any tax increases.To Senate Democrats, it means a balanced plan, about $975 billion in higher taxes and a spending reduction of about $875 billion, not counting cancellation of $1.2 trillion in existing across-the-board-cuts.That makes the two plans polar opposites as President Barack Obama and the two political parties begin maneuvering toward yet another round of deficit-reduction negotiations.“Ultimately the key to this lock is in their (Republican) hands and they’ve got to decide if they want to turn it, and that means taking a balanced approach,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen, a Maryland Democrat who is his party’s chief budget strategist in the House.Across the Capitol, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky offered a rebuttal.He said that under the plan Democrats favor, “We won’t get more jobs or a better economy or sensible reforms to prevent Medicare or Social Security from going bankrupt. And we certainly won’t get a balanced budget.”Even with the deep differences between the two parties, there’s plenty of time before the next make-or-break moment in divided-government’s pursuit of lower deficits.

After enduring more than a year of debate, public discussion and fine-tuning, Washougal residents have clarity on how much their water utility bills will cost in the coming years.Washougal City Council this week approved an ordinance that will enact a multi-year, phased rollout of utility rate changes.Tweaking the city’s rates for water, sewer and storm water has been a point of interest since last year, when the city reminded ratepayers that some customers’ bills would increase by as much as 21 percent in 2013, part of a five-year series of increases initially approved in 2010.After receiving push-back from residents, the city worked to lower the proposed rates, first by using $500,000 from its general fund balance to pay down the increases, then by hiring an outside consulting company, FCS Group, to perform a rate study.From the city’s end, the increases are essential to pay for a series of costly improvements to its wastewater treatment facility. The improvements will bring the aging facility in step with Washington State Department of Ecology regulations.“The reality was, we didn’t have a plan or rates in place that would sustain what we had to do to the system,” Mayor Sean Guard said. “We were already out of compliance.”
