Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals his biggest influence in football

first_imgSwedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic granted an interview to L’Equipe where he gave a surprising statement about his real influence in football.We have lived inside a lie for all these years, we always thought that Ronaldo Nazario was Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s biggest influence in football but we were mistaken.The Swedish striker just revealed the truth about this during an interview with L’Equipe where he spoke about the time when he played for Juventus during a small period of time and met the player who taught him the biggest lessons in the profession, that man is French midfielder, Patrick Vieira.It’s weird I know, but if you stop to think about it, this revelation actually makes a lot of sense.During that period when Zlatan Ibrahimovic had just moved out of his bubble in Holland where he became a world-class player at Ajax from Amsterdam, coming to Serie A was one of his biggest career moves and he arrived in a squad that was filled with some of the biggest names in football at the moment.There he would meet a couple of French legends who quickly grounded him and made him realize that he was a flawed individual, one who could achieve greatness but needed to learn a few life lessons first.Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira wishes Zlatan Ibrahimovic good luck at Manchester United: https://t.co/3q9ivJrSUZ pic.twitter.com/44oFNV5nEe— Metro Sport (@Metro_Sport) July 1, 2016At the time, there was actually no one better than Vieira to teach him those lessons and both players quickly developed a close bond. Even when Juventus was part of that match-fixing scandal in 2006, the two of them decided to play for Internazionale Milano together and they continued to make their friendship flourish.This reveal is really weird because now the video of Zlatan Ibrahimovic admiring Brazilian Ronaldo when they met at a Milano Derby later on, just looks a bit creepy now because we always believed that Zlatan’s biggest influence was the legendary Brazilian striker.But then again, Patrick Vieira does look like a man who could teach a few things to anyone about football, maybe that’s why he decided to become a manager after his career ended.Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke the news to eveybody on his latest interview to French journal L’Equipe, where he also spoke about the possibility of going back to Paris Saint-Germain as a manager in the future, hinting that this could be the next career path for him.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.Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals Patrick Vieira was the biggest influence on his career – “he was always on my back, it was never good enough”. https://t.co/pkqI022Yeg #Juventus #FCIM pic.twitter.com/DLvY6KAIgb— footballitalia (@footballitalia) November 9, 2018“When I met him at Juventus, he had a really different mentality from the other players I’d known,” Ibrahimovic told L’Equipe.“He was always on my back, I thought I was doing things right but it was never good enough. He showed me that you have to give more, want more.”“He taught me that we play as we train. That’s how it works: if you train well, you play well. I don’t need to tell you the player and the professional he was.”“He was a phenomenal player who will remain in history, but I’m happy I knew the player and person. He deeply influenced my game by pushing me to give 120 percent every day, every game.”“I’m not surprised he became a Coach, he already had that in him: his experience, his maturity, his way of helping others.”“He was always available to talk. He really helped a lot of players, not just me. There were big stars at Juve at the time, and to please them you had to give a lot, you got nothing for free,” he concluded.Zlatan Ibrahimović: “Vieira is one of the best players I played with. He was a monster. He taught me so much.” pic.twitter.com/pg9ogekbBM— Football Tweet (@Football__Tweet) December 2, 2015What do you think about Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s unexpected revelation about his biggest influence in football?

Wijnaldum reveals how Klopp got Liverpool back on track

first_imgLiverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum revealed how manager Jurgen Klopp helped them bounce back from back-to-back defeats.After starting their opening 21 games unbeaten in this season’s Premier League, Liverpool were handed a first defeat in their first game of 2019 at Manchester City on January 3.The Reds’ morale was handed another blow just four days later when they went crashing out in the third round of the FA Cup to Wolves.But Liverpool have since responded strongly to those setbacks with wins over Brighton and Crystal Palace to help maintain their four-point lead over City at the top of the Premier League.Now Wijnaldum has revealed exactly how Klopp got through to the squad following their disappointing results at the beginning of the new year.“You always learn from a defeat, even more than when you win games because when you win, you don’t see everything you did wrong,” said Wijnaldum on the club website.“When you lose games you analyse them more than when you win.

ASAWISHH Program Concludes Tilapia Feeding Demonstrations in Pakistan

first_imgASA’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) program recently completed tilapia feeding demonstrations at seven sites throughout Pakistan utilizing floating fish feed produced with U.S. soybean meal.Tilapia are harvested following a months-long soy-based feeding demonstration in Pakistan. (WISHH photo)The demonstration was a strong success – the fish grew quickly and to a market size that was considerably larger than any tilapia that had been in the market place previously. Farmers recognized the critical advantages of the floating feed as they were better able to ascertain the health of their fish, carefully adjust feeding to the actual consumption rate of the fish, and achieve feed conversion ratios that were 100 to 200 percent improvements on the locally available non-floating feed with low soybean content.The farmer with the most successful harvest participated in Kansas State University’s (KSU) Aquaculture Short Course in July 2012, where he learned skills vital to the improvement of his business. KSU is a partner with WISHH in the three-year FEEDing Pakistan program funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.last_img read more

Fatal crash to keep Marine Drive closed until 730

first_imgThis afternoon, Tuesday June 14, 2011, at approximately 2:43 p.m., Portland Police officers from North Precinct responded to the report of a head-on collision in the 7800 block of Northeast Marine Drive.Officers and medical personnel arrived and determined that one driver was deceased. Investigators from the Portland Police Bureau’s Traffic Division Major Crash Team responded to begin an investigation into the crash.Investigators have learned that a 23-year-old male was driving a Toyota coupe eastbound on Northeast Marine Drive when he crossed over the center-line and crashed head-on with a tractor-trailer driven by a 56-year-old male.The impact of the crash killed the driver of the Toyota instantly and drove the Toyota backwards into a Honda sedan driven by an adult female.

Rural ambulance levy on ballot

first_imgVoters who live in the area protected by North Country Emergency Medical Service are being asked to approve a three-year levy to continue paramedic ambulance service there.The area consists of about 1,000 square miles in parts of northern Clark County, southern Cowlitz County and Skamania County, including most of the wilderness surrounding Mount St. Helens.The request is for $1.10 per thousand dollars of assessed evaluation, or $275 for the owner of property assessed at $250,000.The money would be collected next year, and will be used in 2012, 2013 and 2014, said Ben Peeler, who is chief of North Country EMS and Fire District 13, both based in Yacolt.The ambulance service levy is separate from the funding of the fire department, Peeler said, and protects as many as 25,000 residents.In summer, he said, “We get a large influx of people coming in to enjoy our recreational areas.”Residents of the EMS district aren’t charged for ambulance transport, although North Country will bill their insurance company if any.Visitors are charged for ambulance transport, Peeler said.The request for $1.10 per thousand dollars is less than the $1.41 voters approved in 2006, Peeler said.In addition, the 2006 levy was for three years and North Country’s commissioners decided to stretch the money for another year.“We work very diligently at being responsible stewards of the public funds they entrust to us,” Peeler said.Nonetheless, with rising costs of fuel, insurance and other necessities for emergency medical service, North Country now needs proceeds from the levy to maintain the level of service that now is in place, he said.North Country now has two ambulances that are staffed 24/7 by a paramedic and an emergency medical technician certified to start IV lines. Two more ambulances are available if needed.last_img read more

Candidate Haugen has fairly horrible experience at Dems convention

first_imgJon Haugen Congressional candidate Jon Haugen didn’t receive the nomination from his party on Saturday at the Democratic State Convention in Seattle, mainly because of his stance on the Columbia River Crossing project.Delegates in the 3rd District decided in a narrow vote of 38-37 to endorse Haugen. But later, Haugen’s nomination was rejected in a vote by all delegates at the state convention.Failing to clinch the nomination means Haugen will be cut off from campaign funding the party doles out to the Democratic candidates it favors. Haugen called the campaign against his nomination an “ambush” led by a group of bridge proponents from Clark County, including state Rep. Jim Moeller, D-Vancouver.“I’m the only Democrat on the ballot; this should be a perfunctory event,” Haugen said of the vote. Instead, “it was a fairly horrible experience.”Haugen is running to unseat U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas, in the 3rd District. Norma Jean Stevens, who prefers no party, is also in the race.last_img read more

Clark County revises stormwater rules

first_imgClark County’s rules curbing stormwater pollution now include provisions required by a June federal court decision.Clark County commissioners on Tuesday unanimously voted to make permanent the temporary changes adopted immediately after the court’s ruling that the county violated the Clean Water Act from 2008 to 2011.“The previous board (of commissioners) attempted to find alternate ways to satisfy the dictates of the Department of Ecology,” Commissioner David Madore said. “At this point, we just need to comply.”In 2008, the county refused to adopt state standards for managing polluted runoff, dismissing them as an unreasonable burden to place on private developers.In 2011, U.S. District Judge Ronald B. Leighton issued an injunction against Clark County, ordering it to follow state default stormwater requirements that newly developed land drain as slowly as it did prior to Euro-American settlement.At the time, the county was defending its stormwater plan in the state courts, a fight it ultimately lost.Stormwater runoff is federally regulated as a major source of water pollution. It contains toxic metals, oil, grease, pesticides, herbicides, bacteria and nutrients that run off buildings and pavement into streams, degrading water quality and killing marine life.Water flow keyTo meet the state standard, computer models are used to determine how slowly land drained prior to Euro-American settlement. Back then, 95 percent of the county was forested, and the remaining land was prairie.last_img read more

Army Corps shrinks review for Columbia River coal project

first_imgThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is reducing the area it will consider in its endangered species review for the Morrow Pacific coal export terminal proposed on the Oregon side of the Columbia River.Instead of considering the project’s impacts to threatened salmon and steelhead along 276 miles of the Columbia River channel, the agency will limit its assessment to less than one mile around the project’s proposed dock at the Port of Morrow in Boardman, Ore.Coal export opponents say the limited review overlooks many of the impacts the project could have on fish, and they’re worried that the Corps will also choose to ignore the project’s broader environmental impacts.The Morrow Pacific project would transport coal by rail from Montana and Wyoming to Boardman in eastern Oregon. From there, it would be loaded onto covered barges and shipped down the Columbia River to the Port of St. Helens. There, it would be transferred to ocean-going vessels headed to Asia.Players: Ambre Energy North America & Pacific TransloadingFull capacity: To be reached by 2016Export plans: 8.8 million short tons/yearTrains: 22 trains/week (11 full and 11 empty)Trains cars: 1,459/weekBarges: 12 tows/weekVessels: 128/yearWhat’s next: The Oregon Department of State Lands is set to decide in the fall on a dredging permit at the Port of Morrow.

Stolen passports probed in Malaysian plane mystery

first_imgPATTAYA, Thailand — Authorities questioned travel agents Monday at a beach resort in Thailand about two men who boarded the vanished Malaysia Airlines plane with stolen passports, part of a growing international investigation into what they were doing on the flight.Nearly three days after the Boeing 777 with 239 people on board disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, no debris has been seen in Southeast Asian waters.Five passengers who checked in for Flight MH370 didn’t board the plane, and their luggage was removed from it, Malaysian authorities said. Malaysian Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said this also was being investigated, but he didn’t say whether this was suspicious.The search effort, involving at least 34 aircraft and 40 ships from several countries, was being widened to a 100-nautical mile (115-mile, 185-kilometer) radius from the point the plane vanished from radar screens between Malaysia and Vietnam early Saturday with no distress signal.Two of the passengers were traveling on passports stolen in Thailand and had onward tickets to Europe, but it’s not known whether the two men had anything to do with the plane’s disappearance. Criminals and illegal migrants regularly travel on fake or stolen documents.last_img read more
