Casemiro: “I wanted Neymar to come to Real Madrid”

first_imgWhat has improved the most?I don’t play the same now than at 21 when I arrived. The soccer player, until he retires, keeps learning, every day we learn a new lesson.It’s humble and simple, but now everyone talks about you and everyone talks well …I know the importance I have for this club and I know how important I am to Zidane, but I never forget where I come from. I never forget my neighborhood in Brazil, I don’t forget my family, my mother. Those are the values ​​that I take with me.Who was Morera?It was my first coach, with 5 or 6 years, who almost forced me to play. He gave me clothes, boots to play and let me play without paying, because we had no money. As a child I always liked to play football, no matter the position. For me the goal is to steal a ball and the Bernabéu celebrates it the same way.After playing a year with Ancelotti, he decided to leave for Porto. What was the use?I have a lot of love for Lopetegui, I think he is a great person and a great coach. In Madrid he did not go out because this is football and the results did not come, but for me he is a great coach. The simplest thing in football is to change the coach, but we know that the players are also guilty of everything that happens on the field.Do all the kids who arrive in Madrid recommend leaving on loan?I made the decision to leave and it went well, but everyone decides with their future. We trust all the players who are in the first team of Madrid.What changed after the defeat in Mallorca?The most beautiful thing about football is that, you don’t understand what happens.Did the fact that thieves came into the house with his wife and daughter inside him? Are you one of the players with the most carats in the team?We are all important, some play more than others, but we are all important … I notice that I have gallons because I am one of the three players who have played more this season … I want to play, I want to continue working. It is a sensitive issue that I cannot talk about. It was very sad.Tell me about Valverde.He is a great player but he is going to be much better than he is now. It is growing a lot. We have one of the best 8 in the world for the next 12 years.What happened to them in the Cup?In all the matches in which I am not suffering much. Zidane has always made it clear that we are all important here, and that is a very good mentality. I don’t think I missed that game. To win titles we have to be all prepared.Has Zidane evolved as a coach?Very much.He said he gives more credit to winning the League than the Champions League.It is that the League is what marks the regularity of the whole year. But when the Champions League anthem plays at the Bernabéu, Madrid is different. I prefer the Champions.Do you usually talk to Neymar?I speak almost every day with Neymar. Is a crack.Does he prefer to go to Barça?That has to ask him. I wanted him to come to Madrid.Do you prefer Neymar over Mbappé?They are two great players, but they are very different.Are you surprised by what is happening in Barça?I don’t know what’s going on at Barça … I have a friend there, Arthur, but I don’t know what’s going on there.Aren’t you going to end up very tired if you play the Copa América?I want to play, I am a soldier.How’s Hazard?It’s very good, of the players that surprised me the most, it has something that nobody has, thinks ahead of the rest and has a lot to give us.Is this Madrid stronger with four midfielders or with three strikers?We have to do well whatever the system.How about Bale leaving before the end of the game?I am a defender of Bale, he is a huge player. He only talks about things he does wrong, but he doesn’t talk about what he does well, the goals that have given us titles. What I do outside the field doesn’t matter to me. He is a great player.When he hears that Zidane has a flower …I laugh. He is making history. For us it is an honor to have him as a coach, he is the best.Would be eliminated before the City would be a failure?Madrid is always obliged to win.What do you think of Casillas being present at the Federation elections?I have had him as a partner and he is a great person. I wish you all the luck in the world.Would you introduce yourself to those in Brazil?I’m 27 years old … Now I can’t think about that.Who is the player that has impressed you the most?Marcelo and Hazard. In Brazil Coutinho, Neymar, Vinicius, Rodrygo … I play in the best team and the best team in the world.Why did you choose 14?By Guti and Xabi Alonso.Do you still miss Cristiano?How can we not miss a player like Cristiano … He is a great player.Will Vinicius end up triumphing at Real Madrid?Definitely. It is a great game to which we do not have to give so much responsibility. Last year was the best team with Benzema.And do you see Odegaard already in Madrid?Madrid has always believed in him and is having a great season. I have to congratulate him because he is doing an incredible year, but it is not for me to say if next year he has to play in Madrid. 14 When Zidane arrived, at first I put you less, he disappeared a little from the team … Has he changed a lot about that boy who came with 21 years?Zidane talked to me and gave me a lot of peace of mind. Now it’s different, I’m 27 years old, I have more games. But the desire to work and succeed in this club remains intact, I am increasingly looking forward to success here. Of course I am not the same as I came with 21 years, but that happens everywhere, not only in football, it happens in all professions, the experience is important.What do you think has made him take hold in Madrid?It’s a bit of everything, work, talent, humility. Especially the work, I think that when you work you get the results. Work is my strength.last_img read more

‘Security Situation Remains Generally Stable’

first_imgThe Special Representative of the UN Secretary General, Madam Karin Landgren, has said that the security situation in Liberia remains “generally stable”.The SRSG made the observation when she recently addressed the 72nd summit of the United Nations.“When I say we welcome the news, this means that since the last report to the Secretary General, security within the country has been generally stable without any major outbreaks of violence. We are not saying the situation is rosy in terms of the types of violence that I have mentioned. UNMIL works with the government to monitor what is happening around the country in terms of security. Both in terms of incidence of violence in concessionaire areas, in demonstrations and issues like sexual and gender based violence, where we work to maintain statistics of cases that are reported.”According to Madam Landgren, during her visits to various bases of the Liberia National Police (LNP) and Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) throughout the country, she noticed one of the challenges which UNMIL has raised many times is that a vast majority of the LNP is in the capital. As a result, there is not an even spread of police covering the rest of the country.“When I visited them in the county capitals, I always find they have inadequate logistics.  A majority of their cars are broken, they have difficulty getting fuel, they have no communications equipment and sometimes they don’t have furniture or uniforms. Their numbers are usually far below the numbers they are supposed to have officially. I heard about how little they earned and how difficult it is to be stationed in some of these more remote locations. This is why we are advocating strongly for greater support to the LNP and BIN. However, for that to be effective, these security agencies also need well functioning internal systems,” the SRSG explained.She said UNMIL has been sharing their expertise on how to manage budgets and human resources. They have taught members of the LNP and BIN how to better maintain vehicles and their facilities so they don’t fall apart immediately, since these are some of the systems that need to be strengthened.Madam Landgren mentioned Ghana has been supporting this by bringing groups of LNP officers for training at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration. She said strengthening how these actors manage their own resources is a big part of making them more effective.“Let me turn to the Security Sector— in particular, the Police.  As you know, some important steps were agreed upon at a security sector reform retreat last September. These steps included professionalizing the police by appointing senior officials from within their ranks and increasing transparency in tenure and promotion systems. The LNP and BIN have been working to become more effective institutions.  So it has been frustrating to see the facilities vacated by UNMIL in Foya standing empty for over a year, waiting to become a BIN training center; and to see a new LNP training centre in Harper, inaugurated last September, still standing idle.  Over the past few months, the Government has made significant commitments to strengthening the security sector,” Madam Landgren said.In efforts to have the LNP and BIN equipped to take over the country she said, the Minister of Finance has been personally involved in trying to make it easier for funds related to UNMIL security transition to be disbursed to the police, the immigration service and other agencies. “I am not sure this has had measurable success yet, but we look forward to good news.  The police training academy has over a thousand recruits waiting to start training and over 250 people ready to graduate. The President herself has committed to activating more training resources and promised better use of facilities for training. President Sirleaf has committed to having a better balance in the 2014-15 national budgets between investments in infrastructure, and investments in national security,” she concluded.Madam Landgren assured Liberia of UNMIL’s continued support and promised to work with their many partners by contributing to the LNP and BIN.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

“Obstacles” in crater stalling completion of clean-up exercise

first_imgDiamond natural gas explosionWhile officials were expecting to finish clearing up the surroundings to cap the gas pocket that exploded last month when a Diamond, East Bank Demerara, resident was drilling a well in his backyard, they have stumbled upon several obstacles that have prevented them from completing the task within the three-week timeframe initially set.“We started the clean-up exercise and in process, we realised that a portion of the [collapsed] water trestle had fallen into the crater, as well the derelict from the driller is down there. So for us to run the pipes, we have to remove those obstacles. At the moment, we have an excavator, which is waiting there to try to extract that,” Senior Petroleum Technologist attached to Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC)Workers preparing to pump out the slush from the area surrounding the crater on WednesdayMitchell Prince told the Guyana Times on Wednesday.However, he explained that before they can go ahead with installing the materials to cap the crater, they will now have to clear the area of the remaining slush. At the site on Wednesday, workers assembled several pipelines, which they will use to pump out the slush from the area surrounding the crater onto a nearby empty lot.Moreover, Prince added that there were also delays in sourcing the appropriate equipment to carry out the work.“Due to some delays in acquiring the specialised equipment – we had to get a long boom excavator because a short boom couldn’t work – and also the integrity of the area, we cannot guarantee so have to get it working in a safe area,” he noted.  Nevertheless, the Senior Petroleum Technologist asserted that they are looking at another “two weeks or so” to cap the breached gas pocket.Initially, there were plans to construct a contraption apparatus similar to the one that was installed a short distance away over the Grove section of the scheme where there was also an eruption about a decade ago. A metal tank was constructed to trap the gas, which the family now uses for domestic purposes. At this most recent incident, authorities have also detected traces of methane gas.However, Prince could not say whether the same will be done here. “At this point in time, I cannot answer that question; it is left to my superiors… We are gonna be putting in the pipe there and a valve system. It will be similar [to the existing on in Grove] to some extent, however, we have not planned putting a tank,” he stated.Just over a week ago, GGMC’s Commissioner, Newell Dennison, told the Guyana Times that they will have to await the completion of the clean-up exercise for an assessment to be done on the crater before commencing works on the apparatus.“It is intended that we will construct an apparatus, we will construct the conductor casingsThe metal tank that was constructed at the Grove residence following the 2009 gas eruptionthat we would want to put into the vent; those things will have to be constructed. But I wouldn’t want to preempt what it is exactly that would have to be done because there might be modifications of what is intended and what we observe, after the full clean-up and actually get a good look at the orifice that has been presented to us,” Dennison has explained.At about 18:00h on June 14, construction workers were drilling a well at the Lot 1200 Section ‘A’ Block ‘X’, Great Diamond, residence (between Sixth and Fifth Avenue) when they hit a natural gas pocket causing an immediate explosion, with fluctuating eruptions as high as 30 feet which lasted the entire night.Local stakeholder agencies have since come together to monitor the situation. According to officials, the gas emanating does not pose any threat to surrounding neighbours and as such, a safe zone was established in the area.last_img read more

Liverpool and Manchester United target scores in big Bayern Munich win

first_img Robert Lewandowski Robert Lewandowski, who is reportedly being tracked by a host of Premier League teams, scored Bayern Munich’s fourth goal in the German giants’ routine 4-1 win over FC Koln on Friday night.The Polish striker’s value under Pep Guardiola has been questioned in recent weeks after being dropped to the bench and operating on the wing rather than his favoured centre forward position.Lewandowski notched his 14th goal in all competitions this season with a chested finish into an empty net after typical dazzling wing play by Arjen Robben to help extend Bayern’s lead at the top of the Bundesliga to 11 points.Despite his impressive scoring record this campaign the former Borussia Dortmund man’s long-term Bayern future is in doubt, which has allegedly fostered interest from Manchester United and Liverpool. 1last_img read more
