Xavi Hernández refuses to train Barcelona right now

first_imgXavi Hernández has opted to continue as coach of Al Sadd until next June, which is when he ends his relationship with the Qatari team. The former midfielder rejects the offer of Barcelona at the moment, although everything indicates that he will take the reins of the club in June. Image: Getty As they report Sports world Y Sport, Xavi is inclined to occupy the position of coach of Barcelona next season. The meetings between Óscar Grau, CEO of the club, and Eric Abidal, technical secretary, have served to approach positions and analyze future projects.The idea of ​​the club was to sign him immediately, but Xavi’s commitments to Al Sadd, together with the fact that it is not yet the most appropriate time to try to implement his method of work, have ended up postponing this decision.All this leaves Ernesto Valverde in a compromised situation, knowing about Barcelona’s interest in signing Xavi Hernández. The defeat of last Thursday in the Super Cup against Atlético has ended with the patience of Barcelona and right now his future as a coach is hanging by a thread.“It’s my dream” The former FC Barcelona player Xavi Hernández has refused to lead the culé team immediately because he is “focused” on Al Sadd, with whom he will play the Crown Prince Cup final after winning Al-Rayyan this Saturday, and confirmed the talks with Eric Abidal, technical secretary of the Blaugranas.“I have talked about many things with Abidal, he is my friend,” Xavi justified after rejecting Barça’s bench. “I cannot hide that it is my dream to train Barcelona, ​​I have said it in many interviews and everyone knows it, but I am focused on Al Sadd,” the Catalan told a news conference.center_img With almost total security, Xavi will head to Barcelona next summerAll this leaves Ernesto Valverde in a very committed situationlast_img read more

With Leonard gone, a new look for Popovich and the Spurs

first_imgVolcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding The Spurs traded Leonard and Danny Green to the Toronto Raptors for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a conditional 2019 first-round pick on Wednesday. It was clear that Leonard was ready to go despite years of success with Popovich and the Spurs.“At his point, my main interest is definitely not to look back,” Popovich said. “It doesn’t do us any good whatsoever. I’m thrilled to have DeMar and Jakob join us. From that point on, that’s where my focus will be.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Popovich was jovial and heartfelt in speaking to the media for the first time since his wife, Erin, died April 18. Popovich did not coach the Spurs in the final three games of their first-round playoff loss to Golden State.Popovich said this offseason has been “difficult” for him, but it has not dampened the 69-year-old’s desire to continue coaching. “When I can’t do it anymore or don’t want to do it or people don’t want to do it with me, then I’ll stop doing it, but I’m fine,” he said.Popovich will be coaching a crop of young talent unseen in San Antonio since the early days of the Big Three of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili — a roster the result of some big changes.In addition to losing Leonard and Green, San Antonio also lost Parker and Kyle Anderson to free agency. It was especially tough losing Parker, who Popovich formed a patriarchal bond with since the Spurs drafted the then 19-year-old from France.Parker signed a two-year deal with Charlotte after Popovich and Spurs general manager R.C. Buford informed the 36-year-old point guard that his minutes would be limited in favor of younger players like Dejounte Murray, Derek White, Bryn Forbes and first-round pick Lonnie Walker out of Miami.“This was really good for Tony,” Popovich said. “He’ll get more playing time, it’ll kind of rejuvenate him a little bit. I think he’s really excited to be in Charlotte and we’ve got some young kids that we need to develop in Dejounte and Derek White and Bryn and so forth.”ADVERTISEMENT San Antonio Spurs NBA basketball team head coach Gregg Popovich speaks to the media during a press conference in San Antonio, Wednesday, July 18, 2018. The Kawhi Leonard saga in San Antonio is over. So is DeMar DeRozan’s time in Toronto. An NBA summer blockbuster got pulled off Wednesday, July 18, 2018, with the Spurs sending Leonard to the Raptors as part of a four-player deal that has DeRozan heading to San Antonio. The Spurs also got center Jakob Poeltl and a 2019 protected first-round draft pick, while the Raptors acquired sharpshooter Danny Green. (William Luther/The San Antonio Express-News via AP)SAN ANTONIO — The most tumultuous offseason in Gregg Popovich’s two decades with the Spurs ended with the trade of star Kawhi Leonard to Toronto.And Popovich says he is fine with that.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Jones Cup: Ateneo chalks up 2nd straight win at expense of Indonesia Led by LaMarcus Aldridge’s resurgent season, the Spurs won 47 games last season and reached the playoffs for a 21st consecutive year. They did so despite playing without Leonard for all but nine games due to a right quadriceps injury the All-Star forward suffered last year.Popovich said he believes this year’s team will be more talented despite the offseason losses.“I think we’ve sustained a pretty good level of excellence for a very long time, more than most,” Popovich said. “Hopefully that will continue and I’m confident it will with someone like DeMar and a young player like Jakob that can develop.”The Spurs were able to re-sign Rudy Gay and added former Spurs guard Marco Belinelli. Trading for DeRozan and Poeltl kept with the team’s mantra of short- and long-term planning. DeRozan is signed for three more seasons and Poeltl was selected ninth by Toronto in the 2016 draft.“I thought our staff did an unbelievably great job bringing back quality players, quality people and in DeMar, a proven All-Star. I have to be thrilled with that, and I am,” Popovich said.The Spurs are hoping the addition of DeRozan and Walker along with the continued development of Murray, White, Forbes and Davis Bertans along with a healthier Gay will help them in the loaded Western Conference.“You’ve got to shoot the basketball and DeMar does that well,” Popovich said. “But the rest of the makeup of the team having Derek White develop, having Bryn come back, having Rudy come back, all people who can shoot it. Adding Marco Belinelli is important so those things round out and helps LaMarcus do his thing down there. That shooting will help us a great deal.”One unknown factor is Ginobili. The veteran guard from Argentina has a year remaining on his contract but has not decided if he will return. Popovich said Ginobili “is chasing bears in the Northwest” while vacationing with his three young sons. Hoping to entice the 40-year-old to return, Popovich sent a picture of Ginobili in his early years, dunking on an opponent.“He sent me back a picture of me like in my first year here as an assistant,” Popovich said. “I’m not sure what that meant.

BOOST FOR DONEGAL SHOPS AS POUND HEADS FOR CRITICAL €1.20 MARK

first_imgTHE Euro crisis may have massive implications for us all, but shopkeepers in Co Donegal could be about to turn the tide in the store wars with the North…thanks to the strong pound.Last night as money markets closed in Europe, the pound was worth €1.17, its highest in months (making the euro worth 85.4p).With six weeks to Christmas that could stop the flow of shoppers going across the Border – and actually bring shoppers back into Donegal from Derry, Tyrone and Fermanagh. Letterkenny in particular – with its extensive retail parks – could benefit most as the euro continues to slide against sterling.The €1.20 rate – though it hasn’t reached that point yet – is psychologically important for shoppers from the North.At one stage yesterday it was headed for €1.18, before falling back again in a volatile market.Many shops are enticing northern shoppers south by offering the €1.20 exchange rate, including Hegartys in Buncrana. © 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content and Ideas including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com BOOST FOR DONEGAL SHOPS AS POUND HEADS FOR CRITICAL €1.20 MARK was last modified: November 10th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

New Orleans shows its spirit

first_img A threat of thunderstorms Saturday prompted a one-day delay of the Krewe of Endymion’s parade, which was set to follow the Krewe of Bacchus through the Uptown neighborhood on Sunday night. Three smaller parades were held in the afternoon. The sunny weather and party atmosphere provided a sense of optimism for New Orleans six months after Katrina flooded 80 percent of the city and dispersed more than two-thirds of the population. “I just hope the rest of the world doesn’t think New Orleans is OK because we’re having Mardi Gras,” said Cynthia Perkins, who lost her home in the flood. While some decried the city’s plan to hold Mardi Gras celebrations while tens of thousands of residents were displaced, Ebony Jenkins, who lost home, car and possessions in the flood, was in a festive mood nonetheless. “My take on it is: Let it roll,” she said as she waited for floats and masked riders to fill the street and shed a rain of doubloons and beads on the throngs. – Associated Press 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Velasquez said her business was down by at least half. “What can you expect, it’s Katrina!” she said. Pat Kaschalk, a teacher in New Orleans, estimated the crowds at three-quarters of the usual numbers. “It was actually possible to catch something this year,” she said. “We were able to get close to the floats and make eye contact with the riders. Normally we wouldn’t be able to do that.” New Orleans children sat atop ladders yelling for beads and other trinkets Sunday as two of the Carnival season’s biggest and glitziest parades rolled through this fun-starved city. By nightfall, the warm, sunny weather had chilled a bit, but that didn’t stop the crowds – old, young and of all races – from partying. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which flooded most of the city last summer, people seemed a bit nicer – and less apt to lace their words with profanities – than in previous years, an annual vendor said. “Before, the people were more aggressive; now I see there is more passion, more calm,” said Miryan Velasquez, 60, who sells alligator on hot dog buns, lemonade and shrimp po-boys, a quintessential New Orleans sandwich on French bread. last_img read more

first_imgMinister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD has confirmed funding for two festivals in Donegal under the Department’s Small Local Festival and Summer School Fund.€3,000 each is being allocated to Ballyshannon Folk & Traditional Music Festival and the Michael Ó Cleirigh Summer School.South Donegal TD Tony McLoughlin said: “The Ballyshannon Folk Festival is in its fortieth year and gets underway next week with a fantastic line-up and will once again attract music fans from all over Ireland and from Europe. “Michael Ó Cleirigh Summer School each May celebrates the life of the chief compiler of the Annals of the Four Masters and reflects on modern Irish life as well as our history. It has become an important addition to the calendar of events in south Donegal. Both events are important for local communities and our tourism product in the North West.”TD Joe McHugh has also welcomed the allocation saying; “I want to wish the hard-working committees from both organisations continued success. Both events attract huge support from across Donegal and further afield.”€6,000 in funding announced for two Donegal festivals was last modified: July 28th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ballyshannon folk festivalheather humphereysmichael o cleirigh summer schoollast_img read more

The service will support the early diagnosis of heart failure by providing community clinics where patients can access echocardiograms; improved access to consultant cardiologist support for GPs; education of patients and families in caring for someone with heart failure; and fast-tracking patients who need urgent assessment.Cathy Farrell, Heart Failure Clinical Nurse Specialist at Letterkenny University Hospital said, “Heart failure is the most common reason for older people to need a hospital stay and these patients often require a lengthy stay in hospital. “We know from research that when patients have access to a structured Heart Failure Programme – like what we are proposing – then they are less likely to need hospitalisation and will have a better quality of life. Also, if GPs are able to refer their patients for echocardiograms in the community, they are able to reduce the number of patients who need to be referred to the hospital to see a consultant for diagnosis.”Seán Murphy, General Manager, Letterkenny University Hospital said, “Around 3,200 people in Donegal have a diagnosis of heart failure and the same number again have asymptomatic left ventricular dysfunction which means they are at risk of developing heart failure.  “Currently the majority of these patients have to be seen by a consultant in the hospital to get a diagnosis and this may involve a lengthy wait. The proposed Heart Failure Integrated Service for Donegal will integrate the care from the hospital with the care from the community and this will mean faster diagnosis and a better experience for patients by providing services closer to home.”The Chief Officer, for CHO 1, Mr John Hayes welcomed the Sláintecare Integration funding stating, “This project will aid in enhancing and developing services for patients across Donegal.  It will aid in the delivery of quality healthcare to the most vulnerable in our health system. I look forward to working with the project team in the implementation of this initiative.”  New heart failure services to be brought into Donegal communities was last modified: September 27th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:heart failure integrationHSEslaintecarelast_img read more
