Ancelotti: One day Guardiola will come into our club, the Sack Club

first_img “The only one not sacked is Guardiola, but he’s still really young.  Carlo Ancelotti has joked that it is only a matter of time before Pep Guardiola joins the “Sack Club”.  The Italian won the double when he was Chelsea manager and guided Real Madrid to their 10th European Cup, but was eventually sacked by both clubs.  “At Chelsea I won the double. Sacked. At Real Madrid I won La Decima. Sacked,” he said in an interview with The Times.  Sport EN 14/05/2016 He points out that all the best managers have been sacked, though, and says Guardiola, for the time being is the only odd one out. center_img “There is no manager in their career that is not sacked. “[Alex] Ferguson was sacked, [Marcello] Lippi sacked, [Fabio] Capello sacked, [Jose] Mourinho sacked, [Rafa] Benítez.  “He has plenty of time. One day he will come into our club, the Sack Club.” Upd. at 13:46 CEST Ancelotti has been out of work since leaving Madrid at the end of last season, but he will take over from Guardiola at Bayern Munich in the summer.last_img read more

first_imgAdvertisement 54drsNBA Finals | Brooklyn VsuijWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E9jqq( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) vfbWould you ever consider trying this?😱9q1yjhCan your students do this? 🌚fpimlRoller skating! Powered by Firework After one event in Las Vegas and another Down Under, it’s time for the UFC Octagon to cross into Canada for the third and final time this year. UFC 231 takes place at Scotiabank Arena which is a multi-purpose arena and home to many Canadian Teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL), the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the Toronto Rock of the National Lacrosse League (NLL)Advertisement  UFC 231 brings the best featherweights on the planet and the evening’s main event is headlined by the highly anticipated Featherweight Title bout between champion Max Holloway and challenger Brian Ortega. The co-main event will feature the women’s bout between Valentina Shevchenko and Joanna Jedrzejczyk battling for the vacant flyweight strap.Advertisement Featherweight Bout – Max Holloway vs Brain OrtegaFighter Profiles –Advertisement  Max Holloway:  This much anticipated bout was first scheduled for July but due to unforeseen circumstances got rescheduled to December 2018. Since then, Max Holloway anxiously awaits his next title defence. The young Hawaiian is on an unbelievable run with 12 straight wins, including a pair of TKO victories over legendary former featherweight champion Jose Aldo. During his tenure at UFC, Max Holloway has displayed solid striking and footwork fundamentals and is improving his creativity and range with a diverse arsenal of attack. This building nature of the champion makes him stand out from the rest of the featherweight stable. Brian Ortega: Brian Ortega remains one of the few fighters in UFC who is undefeated over his entire career, including seven straight fights in the UFC. His winning streak in UFC has not quiet matched Holloway’s in terms of quantity but is as impressive in terms of quality. The Californian became the first fighter in history to earn a KO win over Frankie Edgar and will look to become the undisputed champion in the Featherweight Division. Ortega’s style is built completely around knocking out his opponent off the perch but if he adds more finishing weapons to his arsenal, he will truly become the fighter everyone dreads This is the best of the best facing off in the featherweight division as Holloway attempts to defend his title and Ortega looks to dethrone him.Women’s Featherweight Bout – Valentina Shevchenko vs Joanna JedrzejczykValentina Shevchenko debuted in the Flyweight division earlier this year and since then “The Bullet” has been anxiously awaiting her shot at the new UFC women’s flyweight title. The multiple-time Muay Thai champion has had one previous fight in the flyweight division when she completely pulverised Priscila Cachoeira back in February. Meanwhile, her opponent Joanna Jedrzejczyk is a former Strawweight queen who is looking to become the first female two-division champion. This won’t be the first time these two women have squared off as they have fought each other three times with Shevchenko coming out victorious on all three occasions. The former Strawweight queen has revenge all over her mind and will look to settle her past business which makes this bout one of the most exciting along with witnessing the early reign of the best flyweight champion of all time.  Advertisementlast_img read more

US to shed light on Africom

first_img21 September 2007The planned location of the new Africa Command (Africom) centre of the United States of America may become know when African envoys meet with their US counterparts in Washington DC this weekend, a senior Foreign Affairs official has told Parliament.Briefing members of Parliament’s portfolio committee on foreign affairs in Cape Town on Wednesday, the department’s acting deputy director-general, Gert Grobler, reiterated the Southern African Development Community (SADC) stance that the region did not want to host Africom.Grobler said there was no “concrete information” available on the proposed location of Africom, a US military command centre dedicated exclusively to the African continent, the creation of which was announced by US President George Bush in February.He added that South Africa was among a number of other countries invited to a meeting with US officials in Washington DC on 22 and 23 September, when the US would make more information on Africom available.Grobler told Members of Parliament that the African Union’s final position on the matter was not entirely clear, although the South African government believed that a majority of countries on the continent would adopt a position similar to that of the SADC.Speaking to the media in August this year, Defence Minister Mosioua Lekota stressed the importance of continental unity behind such a decision, adding that following a unified position on the issue was more important to South Africa’s “medium to long-term interest”.Grobler explained that South Africa was not necessarily opposed to the creation of such a command centre, but would prefer it if the US kept the centre where it is right now – in Germany.He said the SADC’s fears were that, even though Africom would not necessarily entail a large number of personal, it would be “an injection” of US military presence on the continent, creating a facility for enhanced intelligence-gathering within Africa.A major concern is that such a US presence on the continent could lead to “a further radicalisation” of anti-US views on the continent, and even make Africa a target for terrorist acts.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

NASA telescopes snap Christmas comet the brightest of 2018

first_imgEnlarge ImageThe 46P/Wirtanen comet 7.4 million miles (12 million kilometers) from Earth.    NASA/ESA/D. Bodewits (Auburn University)/J.-Y. Li (Planetary Science Institute) When you look to the sky to spot a comet at this time of year, you might be referring to one of Santa’s eight original reindeer.*However, Christmas 2018 has been particularly kind to folk watching for the astronomical kind of comet, because hyperactive 46P/Wirtanen has swung past Earth for a historically close flyby. Of course, NASA was there to capture all the angles using a suite of space telescopes including Hubble, the Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory.The image above was taken by Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) on Dec. 13 when the comet was 7.4 million miles (12 million kilometers) from Earth. The solid core of the comet, the nucleus, hides within the blue aura and is composed of gas and rock. The glow is created by the comet heating up as it passes through the solar system, releasing the trapped gases into the surrounding space. Although 46P/Wirtanen has been described as a “ghostly green”, post-processing has painted the image blue.Because 46P/Wirtanen came so close to the Earth, astronomers have been able to investigate what the comet is made of and how the gases within may be changed as they zip through space exposed to sunlight and radiation.sofia-observation-of-comet-46p46P/Wirtanen snapped by telescope SOFIA when the aircraft was flying at 40,000 feet. NASA/SOFIA Another instrument, NASA’s jet plane-turned-flying telescope SOFIA (Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy), also snapped an image of the comet when the aircraft was flying at 40,000 feet, during the comet’s closest approach to the Earth on Dec. 16. SOFIA’s mission is to study the comet’s water — because astronomers believe water on Earth may have originated from comets and asteroids.Though 46P/Wirtanen is now travelling away from the Earth, you can still catch a glimpse of it in the night sky if you know where to look. NASA recommends heading to the Comet Wirtanen Observing Campaign website and grabbing a star chart that will help you pick it out of the sky. It is visible to the naked eye at very dark sites, so it’s probably recommended to take a pair of binoculars or a telescope if you want a good look.*Sorry for throwing shade Rudolph.
