Roberto Martínez’s agent faces the Belgian federation

first_imgSince then, Martínez’s name has sounded when there has been renovation in benches such as Real Madrid or BarcelonaThe president of the Belgian federation, Mehdi Bayat, has come up with the statements pointing out that the relationship between the institution and the coach is good and that the agent is not well informed about the situation. “I think Mr. De Preter is not aware of the situation,” Bayan told the television network. VTM.The president of the federation has assured that the eventual prolongation of Martinez does not respond to “a financial problem.” “We just want to build something, a relationship. We would like to continue working in an environment where you feel good, just like the federation.”, said Bayat, who stressed that the relationship between technical and federation has so far been “extremely respectful” by both parties.Roberto Martínez, on the other hand, has not made statements about its renewal. Jesse De Preter, the Belgium coach Roberto Martínez, has met the football federation of that country on the contract of the Spanish coach, whom he considers to be underpaid under his current contractor, which expires at the end of the 2020 Eurocup. “It has been underpaid for four years,” has declared to the television network LN 24 the agent on a possible prolongation of the coach’s commitment to the federation of Belgium, since he has held since August 2016.De Preter has also criticized the federation leaders to announce “to the press that there are negotiations when there are none,” something that he considers little “respectful.” The agent hopes that Martinez can “get a better salary” if he continues to lead the ‘Red Devils’ and has assured that he will not make “exorbitant requests.”“The money will not be decisive. I don’t say I win three or four times more because I could win five or six times more in any club.”, said De Preter, who argues that in 2018 the coach agreed to renew his contract with the Belgian federation players needed “stability” in the face of the World Cup in Russia, in which Belgium achieved third place.last_img read more

Haaland: the key is Benzema

first_img13-146016024fifteen%5131% Benzema is by no means a dilemma. His quality is beyond doubt and the step forward he has taken with his attitude since Cristiano left, too. But if you have to spend 100 million on a striker, you have to see what fit it has if, for the moment, the Frenchman is the undisputed holder. Benzema is 32 years old, But he has been very careful in recent seasons, he has an enviable percentage of fat in his body, he usually does little injury. With Cristiano the balance was perfect. The Portuguese liked to start from the left, the other band was Bale, and Benzema was a free soul that ended up serving as glue for the white game. 19-2039771924% These are difficult times for all the teams in the Spanish LaLiga, and Real Madrid is no exception. It works in probable scenarios, without any certainty of whether they can be fulfilled. Mark transfer route sheets, names that are in the portfolio to cover vital positions in the future, But it all depends on whether the competition resumes this season and whether, the next, there are restrictions on the public to enter the stadiums … There is talk of Haaland, the 19-year-old forward who has exploded at Borussia with 12 goals in 11 matches. But beyond economic or viability issues, in Madrid, speaking of forwards, the question is Benzema. 11-12581743218%603. 4% 16-17601731910%4224% 18-19551013030% 09-104811997%3327% 15-16521412819%5136%center_img 14-15591622213%6137% Matches R.

While the Portuguese was on the team Benzema never scored more than 19% of the goals of a season in Madrid. Since Cristiano left, he made 30% last season and has made 24% of this … Remarkably superior but … is it enough for a team like Madrid? The entity had the goals of Asensio, injured, and Hazard, in a very anomalous campaign due to adaptation and injuries. The reality is that the signing of Haaland, while Benzema is on the roster, would be a problem for Zidane. He would recover the goal, yes, but he would have to adapt the system to leave two men on point. Haaland only knows how to play in the demarcation of nine. Benzema is not used to starting the game overturned to one of the bands, which, also, being Hazard on the left, should be the right (when the Frenchman is dropped he always does it on the side of Marcelo). Benzema has a contract until 2022. Until that date … Benzema is the question.last_img read more

Why is such an expensive barricade needed?

first_imgDear Editor,Even in the face of a full-fledged investigation and inquiry into the reported problems affecting the Georgetown municipality, there seems to be a patent reluctance by some officers there to be transparent and forthcoming about important matters pertaining to the Council.Appearing in the press is a report that vendors being relocated from the Stabroek Market wharf are being allowed to construct stalls at their own cost, in order to relieve City Hall of the financial burden of constructing same after it had already spent $23 million on preparatory works at Russell Square to accommodate them.It was stated by a senior officer that the $23 million was spent on the resurfacing and reconstruction of the drainage system, among other things, at Russell Square, West of the Public Buildings. However, what was carefully and deliberately left out was the tens of millions that have been spent so far and will continue to be spent renting the barricade from a favourite contractor that was set up months before they were ready to start and which will be there for months and years to come whilst the new ‘Waterfront Mall and Boardwalk’ is being constructed?Why is such an expensive barricade needed? Why is a barricade needed at all? Was there a tender process undertaken for the rental of this barricade? Would it not have been better to use these millions instead to construct the stalls for the vendors relieving them of this unplanned burden? Why did the officer report to the Council about these barricades and their significant cost?And the band played on at City Hall!Sincerely,Roseanne Rodgerslast_img read more
