Salvadorean offer for Arnett’s Malcolm

first_imgKemal Malcolm’s most productive goalscoring form in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) could land him a much coveted contract with a foreign club.The Arnett Gardens representative, who has so far scored 10 goals this season to be third on the goalscoring table behind leaders Dino Williams with 14 and Cory Burke 12, is being eyed by Salvadorean First Division club Pasaquina.”There is an offer coming for me but nothing is sealed yet. My focus is with Arnett Gardens now, but when I put pen to paper with any other team, then I can say whatever,” the former St George’s College Manning Cup star confirmed with The Gleaner on Sunday.Then, he netted the winner for his team in a 2-1 success over Waterhouse in the Red Stripe Premier League.For Malcolm, who had a short spell on the US College circuit after leaving St George’s, this opportunity will represent the realisation of a dream.”It is a wonderful feeling. I am overwhelmed because as a youngster, my aim was always to play professionally overseas, so to get an offer to play overseas makes me very grateful and very happy. That shows that something is going on with me, that I am doing something good,” the lightning-quick attacker said.The opportunity, Malcolm said, was facilitated by his former teammate, McKaully Tulloch.”This opportunity came about because of my friend, McKaully Tulloch. He hooked me up with his agent and the agent made some clippings of me with the goals that I have scored so far this season, and a few teams were interested. Pasaquina was one of them,” he explained.Malcolm said he is satisfied with what Pasaquina has put on the table, but the only stumbling block to this move could be the value placed on him by Arnett Gardens.”I think Arnett Gardens will want something for me, and that is where the problem is going to be if there will be one. Because of the fact that I am scoring frequently now, they would not want to let me go,” he reasoned.With the Salvadorean league set to kick off in the middle of this month, Malcolm is hoping that things are sorted out quickly.last_img read more

Foreign Exchange Rate Skyrockets in Monrovia Again

first_imgFor the fourth time in less than two months, the foreign exchange rate against the weak Liberian dollar has skyrocketed again.Currently, one United States Dollar is being exchanged for L$87 to L$ 88 in several parts of Monrovia.During the last foreign exchange hike around the holiday season, the Liberian Government was able to intervene swiftly; a development that led to an immediate drop in the exchange rate between both currencies, which are legal tenders in Liberia.As a result of the recent hike in the rate, commercial drivers and other public service transport providers are charging commuters and business people from Red-light Market, Paynesville to central Monrovia L$80 to L$90. The latter amount is L$30 more than the usual fare for that distance.Instead of the approved Ministry of Commerce and Industry’s price of L$60 from Red-light Market in Paynesville and L$50 from ELWA junction, outside Monrovia commercial drivers continue to remain stubborn and defiant.Due to the current hike in transport fare of essential commodities on the Liberian market, commuters and business people have sounded an urgent call on the Liberian Government to take practical steps in order to address the situation.Owing also to the escalation of transportation prices many Liberians are seen stranded at various street corners.Business people from Central Monrovia’s general markets, who went to the Red-light Market over the weekend to buy commodities from rural Liberia, were astonished to learn of the huge hike in most of the commodities.Many of Central Monrovia’s business people paraded the densely populated Red-light Market and were left no other option but to buy the locally produced commodities at inflated prices.Commodities that had their prices increased included rice, cassava, cucumbers, corn, peanuts, tomatoes, cabbage, potatoes, cassava greens among others.Several consumers expressed concern over the situation and sounded an urgent appeal to the Ministries of Commerce and Industry and Transport to take strict measures against some of the exploitative transport service providers.One commuter from Paynesville told the Daily Observer that if swift action was not instituted by the Liberian government on the current foreign exchange situation, public outcry might degenerate into street protest.Darlington B. Dolo, 48, said the current hardship being encountered at the hands of commercial drivers could be attributed to the silence being exhibited by the Liberian Government.Businesswoman Sarah Kolliego, 38, said she was running out of business due to the current hike in commodities on the Liberian market.“I was shocked to see how much the prices of locally produced commodities have been ramped up beyond the reach of ordinary Liberians,” Madam Kolliego said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Revealed: 13 greatest footballers-turned-managers – Pep, Dalglish, Ancelotti, Clough and more

first_imgNow Pep Guardiola’s next managerial role is confirmed, talkSPORT looks at the greatest footballers who became top managers.Guardiola will succeed Manuel Pellegrini at Man City in the summer, leaving Bayern Munich after three years in charge and two Bundesliga titles.It could be a third by the time he arrives in Manchester, while the Germans are still on the hunt for the Champions League.But where does he rank among the very best? Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see 13 great footballers turned managers.We’ve taken into account the impact these people have had as players and managers.So, for example, Sir Alex Ferguson, while ranking as one of the greatest managers of all-time, did make the list, having had a fair more limited impact as a player. 13 13. Antonio Conte: From Juventus captain to successive Serie A crowns as manager – find out who rank as the greatest players-turned-managers, just click the arrow above – With Pep Guardiola heading for Manchester City, and rumours that local rivals Manchester United may consider elevating Ryan Giggs to the position of manager, our thoughts turned to the subject of the best players who went on to become successful managers. We start with Antonio Conte, in 13th place, a man who captained Juventus and was a well loved player, winning the Champions League and five league titles. Conte also won three successive league crowns when he took over as manager in 2011 and is now Italy boss. Before that he won Serie B with Bari. Not a bad haul! 13 13 6. Brian Clough – From phenomenal goal scorer to manager of the most incredible European Cup triumphs ever – Clough’s goal record reads like this: 197 goals in 213 league games for Middlesbrough, and 54 goals in 61 games for Sunderland. Sadly, a serious injury playing for the latter halted his career prematurely in 1962. He then began his managerial career at Hartlepools at the age of 30 in 1965, before joining Second Division Derby in 1967, winning promotion to the top flight and later the First Division. A spell at Brighton and a 44-day stint at Leeds followed, before Clough took over at struggling Second Division club Nottingham Forest. Remarkably, Clough guided Forest to the First Division title in 1978, in their first year back in the top flight, then back-to-back European Cups in 1979 and 1980. The League Cup was also claimed in 1978, 1979, 1989 and 1990, though the FA Cup eluded Cloughie, as his Forest side lost the 1991 final. 13 13 11. Bobby Robson – West Brom and Fulham forward who won trophies as a manager all over Europe – Robson scored 69 goals in 152 games for Fulham and later captained West Brom where he made the first of 20 appearances for England in 1957. He scored twice against France on his debut and later guided Ipswich to FA Cup glory in 1978 then the UEFA Cup in 1981. As England manager he reached the World Cup quarter-final in 1986 and the semis four years later, then won successive Eredivisie titles in 1991 and 92 with PSV, followed by two more league crowns with Porto and the 1997 Copa del Rey and Cup Winners Cups with Barcelona. 9. Jupp Heynckes – Serial winner as a player who went on to win the Champions League as manager of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich – Heynckes was a member of the Borussia Monchengladbach side that lost the 1977 European Cup final to Liverpool. However, during his time at the club he won the UEFA Cup, three Bundesliga titles and the German Cup. He was on the sub’s bench when West Germany won the World Cup in 1974, but played for his country as they won the 1972 European Championship. As a manager, Heynckes won the Champions League with Real Madrid in 1998 (their first European Cup in 32 years) and then 15 years later, in his final season as Bayern Munich boss, won the treble – Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup. 13 13 10. Fabio Capello – Italy international who coached one of the finest ever European Cup final performances – Capello won the Coppa Italia as a player with Roma in 1969 and then three Serie A titles with Juventus between 1972 and 1975. In addition, he scored the only goal at Wembley as Italy beat England 1-0 in 1973. After retiring, he went into coaching with AC Milan, and succeeded Arrigo Sacchi as first team boss, where he won four titles and oversaw a 4-0 hammering of Johann Cruyff’s Barcelona in the 1994 Champions League final. Capello’s impressive honours list includes two Spanish titles in two separate spells with Real Madrid, as well as another Serie A title with Roma. He guided Juventus to back-to-back titles in 2005 and 2006, which were subsequently stripped due to a match-fixing scandal, in which Capello played no part. 3. Franz Beckenbauer – World Cup-winning captain and manager, virtual inventor of the sweeper role and European Cup legend – ‘Der Kaiser’ is quite simply one of the most important figures in the history of football. As a player, he bestrode the second half of the 1960s and the 1970s, redefining the role of centre back, and was most commonly referred to as a ‘sweeper’. Beckenbauer spearheaded the rise of Bayern Munich, winning four Bundesliga titles and three back-to-back European Cups with the club, while also skippering West Germany to 1972 Euro and 1974 World Cup glory. As his playing career wound down, he still had time to help Hamburg to the 1982 Bundesliga title, before taking the reins as West Germany manager. A 1986 World Cup final defeat to Argentina was avenged in 1990, when Beckenbauer became the first man to captain and manager a nation to a World Cup win. With Marseille, he claimed the 1991 Ligue 1 title, while he had brief spells in charge of Bayern, landing the 1994 German title and 1996 UEFA Cup. 13 13 5. Mario Zagallo – First person to win the World Cup as a player and manager – Zagallo was involved with two of the greatest teams of all-time, first as a player and then manager, becoming the first player to win the World Cup on and off the pitch. Zagallo, the winger, was part of the brilliant 1958 Brazil side that lifted the Jules Rimet trophy, then featured in the 1962 team that successfully defended the cup. In 1970 he was manager of the legendary team that claimed World Cup glory in Mexico, and was assistant coach to the 1994 winners. 13 7. Diego Simeone – Argentine hero who excelled as a player in Spain and Italy, before upsetting the odds as Atletico Madrid manager – Simeone represented Argentina 106 times, winning two Copa Americas, in addition to club success with Atletico Madrid (1996 league and cup double), Inter (1998 UEFA Cup) and Lazio (2000 Serie A title). After returning to Argentina to wind up his playing career, Simeone’s managerial path began with Estudiantes, where he claimed the Apertura title, then the Clausura with River Plate. These successes earned him a return to Atletico Madrid, where he won the Europa League, Spanish Cup and La Liga, breaking Barcelona and Real Madrid’s dominance. Simeone’s Atletico came within a whisker of winning the 2014 Champions League, too. 4. Carlo Ancelotti – Back-to-back European Cup winner as a player who is only the second man to win three European Cups as a manager – A Serie A champion and four time Italian Cup winner with Roma in his playing days, Ancelotti was also a midfielder in the all conquering AC Milan side of the late 80s and early 90s, winning successive European Cups and two Serie A titles, as well as scoring a memorable long range strike in the 1989 5-0 thrashing of Real Madrid in the European Cup last four. Ancelotti was part of the Italian team that finished third at the 1990 World Cup, and would go on to carve out a ridiculously successful post-playing career as a manager. His first major honour was the 2003 Italian Cup, shortly followed by the Champions League, and he has since gone on to become only the second man to manage three European Cup-winning teams, winning again with Milan in 2007 and guiding Real Madrid to 2014 Champions League glory. Add to this a Premier League and FA Cup double with Chelsea, the French title with PSG and a Spanish Cup with Madrid, and you’re looking at quite a CV. 8. Kenny Dalglish – A sublime playing talent who kept on winning as manager, even claiming the double in his first season as Liverpool’s player-boss, scoring the title clinching goal himself – Arguably the greatest British footballer of them all, Dalglish’s goal won Liverpool the 1978 European Cup, a trophy he won on two more occasions with the Reds, in addition to six league titles, four League Cups and one FA Cup (as player-manager), not forgetting four Scottish league crowns claimed with Celtic before he went south of the border. Later he won the English league three times as Reds boss (once as player-manager), another FA Cup in 1989 and then the 1994/95 Premier League title as manager of Blackburn. A Scottish League Cup followed as Celtic manager in 2000, then he completed the domestic set as Liverpool manager when he claimed the 2012 League Cup during his return to Anfield. 13 13 12. Didier Deschamps – European Cup and World Cup winner who guided Monaco to the Champions League final – The current France manager won the World Cup, the Champions League twice, the European Championship and five league titles in two different countries at Juventus and Marseille. He also won the FA Cup with Chelsea and as manager, guided Monaco to the Champions League final in 2004 and claimed the French League Cup three times. As manager of his old club Juventus, he led them to the Serie B title in 2007. 2. Pep Guardiola – Played in Barcelona’s European Cup-winning ‘Dream Team’ before creating a dream team of his own, then dominating German football – Now regarded as the best manager in world football, Guardiola didn’t do too badly as a player. Breaking into Barcelona’s first team in the 1991/92 season, he ended it as a Spanish league title winner and, most impressively, a European Cup hero, as he helped the club claim their first long overdue success in the competition. Much more was to follow, as Guardiola became a key figure in Barca’s so-called ‘Dream Team’, claiming La Liga again in 1993 and 1994, the Spanish Cup in 1997 and 1998, and the Cup Winners’ Cup in ’97. Two more titles followed in 1998 and 1999, but 10 years later as manager of the club Barcelona won an incredible six trophies in the same calendar year. Since then, he’s added another Champions League, two Spanish titles, two Spanish Cups, two Bundesligas and one German Cup. His influence on football tactics has been great, too, arguably extending to Spain’s 2010 World Cup glory, and their Euro 2012 triumph. But he’s pipped to number one in this ranking by the man who inspired him… 13 1. Johan Cruyff – One of the greatest ever footballers, a phenomenally successful manager and a figure of huge influence across borders and years – Without Cruyff it’s doubtful Guardiola would have achieved all that he has. Cruyff is arguably the most influential figure in football history, being one of the greatest players to grace the game, then one of the greatest managers. As a player, Cruyff was the main man in Ajax’s revolutionary brand of ‘Total Football’, inspiring the Dutch club to a hat-trick of European Cups in the early 1970s. For Holland, Cruyff was majestic at the 1974 World Cup, and despite losing the final to West Germany, his performances and the Dutch style of play has gone down in history as iconic. Cruyff moved to Barcelona as a player and inspired the club to their first Spanish title in 14 years. He returned to Holland, winning the Dutch title with Feyenoord, before taking over as Ajax boss and claiming their first European honour since his playing days. The Barca job followed, and Cruyff revolutionised the way the club played its football, not only picking up trophy-after-trophy, but imbuing a style that has become world famous.last_img read more

Tennis: Roddick aces qualifier

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Benneteau held serve to open the second set but Roddick went on a five-game run. He won the set on another error by the Frenchman, who wore ice packs on his neck in the breaks between games to cope with the heat. The extreme heat policy was put in effect today when the temperature exceeded 96 degrees. New matches on outside courts were suspended for an hour under the so-called heat stress index guideline, which combines the ambient air temperature and court surface temperature. Roddick, who had 28 winners and only 16 unforced errors, said he didn’t mind the heat and wasn’t in any particular hurry despite finishing in 1 hour, 22 minutes. His next opponent is Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus, who beat Denis Gremelmayr 6-2, 6-1, 6-2. Women’s No. 1 Lindsay Davenport endured 2 hours, 19 minutes on Rod Laver Arena while play was suspended elsewhere, holding off Maria Kirilenko 6-4, 4-6, 6-2. Davenport struggled in the heat, hitting 42 unforced errors. She clinched it on her second match point as thick storm clouds loomed over from the southwest, cooling conditions off. “It’s tough. The courts are real sticky,” Davenport said. She next plays 2004 U.S. Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, one of four Russians advancing to the fourth round. Maria Sharapova also didn’t waste time in the heat, routing Jelena Kostanic 6-0, 6-1 and setting up a possible fourth-round showdown with Serena Williams. Sharapova, the 2004 Wimbledon champion, lost to Williams in the semifinals here last year after twice serving for the match and squandering three match points. Williams, the defending champion, was playing No. 17 Daniela Hantuchova later today, with the winner advancing to play the fourth-seeded Sharapova. “It’ll be great,” Sharapova said, referring to a possible matchup with Williams. “Of course I was disappointed last year. But … I’ll get my revenge.” French Open champion Justine Henin-Hardenne had a 6-4, 6-1 win over Virginie Razzano. On the men’s side, No. 4 David Nalbandian, the Masters Cup champion, was to play Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen. No. 11 David Ferrer beat No. 18 Mario Ancic 6-3, 6-3, 6-3, and Fabrice Santoro overcame No. 8 Gaston Gaudio 6-3, 6-2, 5-7, 1-6, 6-4 in an entertaining match that lasted 3 hours, 47 minutes. Third-seeded Lleyton Hewitt was upset 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (8), 6-2 by Argentine Juan Ignacio Chela on Thursday night, so the draw has opened up for Roddick and top-ranked Roger Federer, who is on the other half. Martina Hingis, continued her impressive comeback with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Finland’s Emma Laine on Thursday. Hingis left the tour three years ago because of foot, heel and ankle injuries. Kim Clijsters overcame 48 unforced errors to beat Yuan Meng 6-4, 6-2. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

AMBER STARS ON HOME TURF AS DONEGAL LADIES BEAT KILDARE

first_imgDONEGAL’S Senior Ladies made it four wins from four with a super win over Kildare today.It was a particularly special day for Amber Barrett in the match played at her home club in Milford.And she played a star role, hitting three of her side’s five goals in the 5-19 to 1-02 victory. Donegal had led by just six points at the break after a late Kildare goal just before the whistle.But there was to be little cheer in the snow – and the sunshine – for the visitors as Donegal’s lovely passing game saw they rip the Kildare defence apart again and again.So by the time Amber hit the back of the net for the third time, her punch to the air was more in celebration of a great day out at her home club than anything else.Eilish Ward and Niamh Heraghty were the other goalscorers on a day when everyone on the team shone, Nicole McLaughlin superb in defence, Shannon McGroddy seemed to be almost everywhere and Roisin Curran’s vision and passing a joy to behold.  AMBER STARS ON HOME TURF AS DONEGAL LADIES BEAT KILDARE was last modified: March 1st, 2015 by John2Share 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:Divison 2donegalkildareLadieslast_img read more

‘I WAS JUST DOING MY JOB’ SAYS DONEGAL HERO IN RESCUE MISSION

first_imgA CO Donegal man hailed a hero for saving the life of a kayaker in shark-infested waters off America insisted today: “I was just doing my job.”Emmet Hoey from Letterkenny was part of a search and rescue team which “saved the life” of George Sanderson five miles out to sea off California after his vessel started taking on water.The incident at the weekend was just a few miles from where a great white shark took a bite out of a fisherman’s boat a day earlier. Mr Sanderson, 50, of Paso Robles, rushed to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo. He was in a critical condition at the time but his condition has since improved.Today Emmet was very much a reluctant hero.He told donegaldaily.com: “We just did what we are trained to do, and it seemed to work out well.“The victim, George, is said to be making a quick recovery so the end result was good.” Emmet insisted: “It was a big team effort, maybe twenty plus people involved, and everyone of them played their part. ”Sanderson’s kayak took on water about five miles south of San Simeon Beach, perhaps because of an improperly secured drain plug, according to Richard Stacy of the North Coast Ocean Rescue Team, which pulled the man from the water Sunday.Sanderson was “wearing a life jacket but was not wearing a wet suit,” Stacy said. Sanderson was breathing, volunteer diver-rescuers told Stacy, but the patient’s pulse was so weak it couldn’t be detected without equipment.Sanderson’s survival is “due to the quick response of the Cal Fire and North Coast Ocean Rescue personnel and boats,” Stacy said.Our previous story on this is here: https://www.donegaldaily.com/2012/05/16/donegal-man-hailed-hero-after-snatching-victim-from-shark-infested-sea/‘I WAS JUST DOING MY JOB’ SAYS DONEGAL HERO IN RESCUE MISSION was last modified: May 17th, 2012 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)Tags:’I WAS JUST DOING MY JOB’ SAYS DONEGAL HERO IN RESCUE MISSIONlast_img read more
