Carragher Rashford should leave United to become worldclass

first_imgSky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher says Marcus Rashford should consider leaving Manchester United if he wants to reach his full potential.Rashford scored the lone goal as England beat Switzerland 1-0 in a friendly game at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.The Manchester United forward was also on target on Saturday as England lost 2-1 to Spain at Wembley.And Jamie Carragher believes he needs to regular football elsewhere in the Premier League to become a world-class player.Carragher told Sky Sports: “Romelu Lukaku is in front of Rashford and I don’t see Rashford displacing him as long as he is there.“But remember when Lukaku was at Chelsea and he had to come away and go to Everton. Then he ended up as top scorer and got his move to Man Utd.“Possibly Everton is the sort of club you are looking at, just below the top six, for someone like Rashford, similar to what Lukaku did.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“You know you are going to play every week as the centre-forward and you know if you have a couple of games where you don’t score then you are still going to play the next week.“Last season after they played Brighton away, Mourinho had a little pop at him and Lukaku went straight back into the team. That’s the problem you will always have.“Does he have to leave United? I think so. Is he good enough to displace Lukaku? Is Rashford good enough to be Manchester United’s centre-forward for them trying to win the Premier League or the Champions League? He may not be.“It gets to the stage where you want to play every week. Will he be an England regular or be Manchester United’s real centre-forward where you know when the team is picked every week, that he is in it. Will it ever get to that stage?“In that position, you have got to be world class. Rashford is not world class yet, but he might be at 23 or 24, as Lukaku has done. He looks like one of the best strikers in the world.“Rashford may have to move away to come back to one of the top teams.”last_img read more

Lenglet doesnt seem to care about Dembeles indiscipline

first_imgFrench defender Clement Lenglet, set a very dangerous precedent of not calling out compatriot Ousmane Dembele on his latest indiscipline.Even though he is actually doing very well inside the pitch with FC Barcelona, French winger Ousmane Dembele made a new mistake this Monday and he is not getting called out by teammates like Clement Lenglet.Just to give you an example of the same type of situation, PSG forward Kylian Mbappé was absolutely called out by his teammates for arriving late to a Champions League match earlier in the season regardless of how important he is for the club.Dembele seems to have a problem with time management, he keeps coming in late to every single commitment with the club and even the manager doesn’t have an explanation for it anymore.This same problem has repeated so many times, that everybody has already lost count and alarming patterns are starting to emerge that cannot be good for the club.Dembele keeps delivering great performances with the club, something that has given him credit for his indiscipline and keeps him on the manager’s good graces for now.#BarçaSpurs ⚽ | #Lenglet 🎙🗣 “Entiendo el trabajo de los periodistas, pero para mi lo que más importa es lo que pasa en el terreno de juego”#EnDirecto ▶ https://t.co/fLfVuj6HA7 pic.twitter.com/lnRc2egeSA— Diario SPORT (@sport) December 10, 2018But not having his teammates calling him out on the bad behavior is something unprecedented at a club such as FC Barcelona, an institution that has historically rejected to sign players who have these types of problems in their previous clubs.Back in the ’80s, Barça famously refused to sign ‘Magico’ Gonzalez because he refused to follow the rules inside the club.This Salvadorian player is widely regarded as one of the most talented of the era, and the club still decided to not pursue him anymore due to his controversial “traditions” of partying and coming in late to every single training session.What Dembele is doing right now has created a tremendous shift in the club’s customs, something that none of the players could easily accept but some of them decide to let pass.Compatriot Clement Lenglet for example, just revealed this Monday that he isn’t really paying attention to the off-the-field problems that his teammate is having and he doesn’t care about them as long as he keeps delivering great performances.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.There are even reports of the club already having knowledge of these problems, and simply looking the other way because of how talented the player is.🔜 #BarçaSpurs@ivanrakitic 👈 ⚽️ 👉 @Dembouz 🎬 Full video: https://t.co/b2NelcAp5G🔵🔴 pic.twitter.com/zqSN3UTRh9— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) December 10, 2018Lenglet spoke to the media ahead of FC Barcelona’s Champions League match against Tottenham Hotspur, a game in which Dembele will most likely feature despite his indiscipline.“I don’t have much idea about what is happening with him, but what I do know is that he is doing very well on the pitch,” Lenglet told reporters on Monday via Diario Sport.“I don’t know if [a punishment] is the right thing to do or not, you’d have to ask that question to those with the power because I don’t know if he has to be sanctioned. He’s doing a lot of things well on the pitch.”“He’s playing very well for the team and that’s what interests me most about him. This game is still an important one for us because it is a Champions League game and you don’t play many of them in a year,” he added.“You have to enjoy these games because they are a chance for you to play against the best in the world. We aren’t happy about conceding goals, though, and that’s a very important issue for us because we want to win things.”“In recent games, we have suffered a little, but it is difficult to complete a full 90 minutes without having tough moments,” he concluded.🔊 @clement_lenglet: “I’m happy with the minutes I’m getting, but I know that I can give even more and I want to continue growing.” #BarçaSpurs pic.twitter.com/K6iLazrGeo— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) December 10, 2018Why do you think FC Barcelona is looking the other way in regards to Ousmane Dembele’s indiscipline?

Christmas Message from the Commissioner of Police

first_img Related Items:#CommissionChristmasMessage, #magneticmedianews #MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, December 23, 2016 – I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. This is the season of great rejoicing as families, relatives, and friends reunite to celebrate the reason for the season. As we look forward to the New Year with big expectations and enthusiasm, I hope that we can continue to work together to make this country safe and secure.Members of the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force have been working tirelessly throughout the year in an effort to reduce crime. Many initiatives and strategies that have been put in place to deal with Serious Crimes, Burglaries, and more minor incidents are producing very positive results. In the last three months alone, officers have conducted over 10 targeted operations, carried out 200 stop searches, arrested over 20 offenders and issued 250 traffic violation tickets. In Joint operations we have detained 96 illegal immigrants in some challenging and demanding circumstances.As we ready ourselves to celebrate Christmas and usher in a new year, it is imperative to be very vigilant as criminals also want to celebrate in style by stealing what you have accumulated throughout the year. Be on the lookout for scammers who will try to employ tricks to obtain money from you under false pretenses, and you are asked to avoid withdrawing large amounts of cash from the banks.  We will continue our operational activities in the New Year with a focus on the serious and dangerous criminals that undermine the safety of citizens, visitors and the country itself.As we come to the end of 2016, I extend the happiest Christmas and New Year wishes full of aspiration and new resolutions to all other Law Enforcement Agencies, well-wishers, members of the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force including support staff and their families for their valued support, devotion and assistance throughout the year. We look forward to working closely again with you in the New Year. Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp James Smithlast_img read more
