Salah goes from Chelsea flop to African king

first_imgEgypt’s Mohamed Salah vies for the ball against Congo’s Tobias Badila during their World Cup 2018 Africa qualifying match between Egypt and Congo at the Borg el-Arab stadium in Alexandria on October 8, 2017. AFP PHOTO Accra, Ghana | AFP | It took Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah just three years to transform from a Chelsea reject to being crowned African Player of the Year in Ghana Thursday.Salah failed to blossom after moving from Swiss outfit Basel to Stamford Bridge, leading to him being lent to Serie A sides Fiorentina and AS Roma, then sold to the latter.At Roma, his career took off as he scored 29 goals in two seasons and created 17 others to draw the attention of several English Premier League suitors.Liverpool made a successful £34.3 million (about $46.5 million; 38.5 million euros) bid and Salah has not looked back since, scoring 23 goals in 29 matches in all competitions.He has made a habit of bagging braces with the most recent helping Liverpool come from behind at home to edge Leicester City 2-1 last month.Seventeen of the goals have come in the Premier League, placing him second in the scorers’ charts, only one goal behind Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur.Apart from his Liverpool exploits, Salah last year helped resurgent Egypt finish Africa Cup of Nations runners-up and reach the World Cup for the first time since 1990.The African Player of the Year title completed an awards hat-trick after he was named BBC African Footballer of the Year in December and Arab Player of the Year earlier this week.It is a far cry from a few years ago when Salah was doubting whether he could ever become a regular scorer in a major European league.“Mohamed has been absolutely amazing and gives Liverpool a different dimension because his pace gets him behind defenders,” said former Liverpool star Ian Rush.“Before the arrival of Salah, opponents of Liverpool were happy in the knowledge that no one was going past them.”Another former Liverpool star, Gary McAllister, said the Egyptian combined individual skill with teamwork.“Mohamed has wonderful flair, but also works effortlessly for the side and is very much a team player.“He works his socks off for the badge and that is what really impresses me. He is also capable of scoring from all areas of the pitch.”Most Egyptian stars eventually play for one of the Cairo club giants — Al Ahly or Zamalek — before considering a move to Europe.But Salah never lined up for the “Red Devils” of Ahly or the “White Knights” of Zamalek, turning out for less fashionable El Mokawloon instead in the Egyptian capital.His goals attracted the attention of Basel, who signed him after Egyptian domestic football was suspended in 2012 when a football-related Port Said riot claimed more than 70 lives.He played for Egypt at under-20 and under-23 levels before making his senior debut and was the leading 2018 World Cup qualifying scorer in Africa with five goals. *****Complete list of winners at the 2017 Confederation of African Football (CAF) awards ceremony in Accra Thursday:Player of the Year1.

Raft the Wild Upper Nisqually River with the Nisqually Land Trust

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Nisqually Land TrustExperience the Nisqually River up close, right on the water. The Nisqually Land Trust is offering rafting trips on July 23 and 24 that will float the seldom-seen upper stretch of the Nisqually River. Reservations are $115 per person.This family-friendly trip is rated for adults and children 60 pounds and up and is professionally outfitted and guided by Alpine Adventures. It will last from four to five hours, depending on river conditions, and includes a catered riverbank lunch.Capitol Land Trust’s Nisqually River Floats offer families the chance to see little known stretches of the scenic river. Photo courtesy: Nisqually Land Trust“You may not realize how wild and scenic the Nisqually is,” says Land Trust Executive Director Joe Kane. “This river is close to home, yet 75 percent of its lower 42 miles—from Alder Dam to the delta—is permanently protected, undeveloped, and relatively inaccessible. Rafting is really the best way to see the Nisqually and its eagles, hawks, deer, and other wildlife.”The Saturday and Sunday trips will depart from the Nisqually’s confluence with the Mashel River, near Eatonville, and finish at Wilcox Farms, near Roy. This 13-mile trip passes along several Land Trust properties, including the three-mile length of one of the Land Trust’s largest holdings, Powell Creek, which includes majestic stands of mature forest. “Nearly every mile along this stretch of river is permanently protected by the Land Trust or our partners,” said Kane. “This is a beautiful illustration of what cooperative conservation can achieve.”Nisqually float trips are professionally guided and suitable for families with children over 60 pounds.For reservations and further information, call the Nisqually Land Trust at (360) 489-3400 or visit the Land Trust’s website.The Nisqually Land Trust acquires and manages critical lands to permanently benefit the water, wildlife, and people of the Nisqually River Watershed.last_img read more

Jurgen Klopp confirms more fringe players could leave Liverpool

first_img 3 Jurgen Klopp has admitted he is open to allowing fringe players to leave Liverpool before the transfer deadlines close around Europe – but insists any potential deals will have to be ratified by him.The Reds have shown real ambition in the market this summer, adding Naby Keita, Fabinho, Alisson Becker and Xherdan Shaqiri to their books, while allowing a handful of less established players to move on. 3 “The transfer window closed in England and the whole of the world – the whole of Europe at least – was waiting for that moment and they start now trying dumping (lower) prices to get good football players.“That will not happen. We are not in a financial need. No player would leave the club if I would not allow it. First the situation is, ‘How is the offer, how is the need for us?’.“I really think we could give a few players the opportunity (to move on) but we have to see how many. I have no number in my mind at the moment.” Jurgen Klopp says some of his fringe players could leave Liverpool by the end of this month – but only if he ratifies the deals Simon Mignolet is one of several Liverpool players who could leave the club with a number of foreign windows still yet to close center_img Further outgoings seem likely, spearheaded by Estonia international Ragnar Klavan’s expected £2million switch to Cagliari.The likes of Simon Mignolet, Lazar Markovic and Dominic Solanke are also expected to attract interest too, but Klopp says the early closure of the Premier League window will not result in the Reds selling players on the cheap.“I said before, in general, that’s it’s possible players could leave the club and that will happen if it’s good for everyone,” he said ahead of Monday’s trip to Crystal Palace. 3 The Reds are being backed by many to be the fiercest challengers to defending champions Manchester City this term, and did those claims no harm at all with an emphatic 4-0 victory over West Ham United last weekend.While Klopp was pleased with his side’s display at Anfield, he is not getting carried away just 90 minutes into a 38-game Premier League campaign.“People are still not used to enough good football from us, because if we are good we are ‘unbelievably good’. But we didn’t get anything for it so far,” he added.“We need to stay positive, very good, but stay angry as well. Don’t celebrate the whole week until Monday and then fall hard.” Sadio Mane grabbed a double as the Reds thrashed West Ham United 4-0 at Anfield in their opening Premier League game of the season last_img read more

Housing Minister slammed over failure to publish housing report

first_imgfrustration has been expressed towards the Minister for Housing following what has been described as the ‘failure’ to produce a report on the review of the Tenant Purchase Scheme.Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal, Charlie McConalogue, said promises had been made earlier this year that the report would be published ‘shortly.’Deputy McConalogue said: “I raised this matter in the Dáil in June of this year, but when no report was published, I raised it again last week and was exasperated to be given almost word for word, the exact same reply I received in June. “On that occasion, the Minister promised the report would be published but last week’s response from the Minister shows there is no clear plan to actually publish the report.“It has been now well over two years since the review of the Tenant Purchase Scheme was completed, but since then the government has been dragging its heels on the matter,’ McConalogue said.“The very fact that the review has been finished for so long but appears to have lay gathering dust on the Minister’s desk since then, is a clear indication that the Minister and the government, have no grasp of how many people are still anxiously awaiting the publication of the review.“The scheme was reintroduction but quickly found that a number of people were barred from entering the scheme due to its rigid criteria. “In the majority of cases, they were refused due to the fact their only source of income was social welfare. However, often the applicants were old-age pensioners who want to own the house they have made their home,” he added.“They were barred from the scheme despite the fact they had amassed lifelong savings to support the purchase of their home.“The response from the Minister is an insult to those hopeful the review might bring about changes to the scheme to allow them to buy out their home.“The report is ready for publication and there is no reason for further delays from the Minister at this stage. I will continue to press the Minister to publish this report immediately and afford local authority tenants in these situations the opportunity to make their home their own,” concluded Deputy McConalogue.Housing Minister slammed over failure to publish housing report was last modified: October 31st, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more

Cassano clashes with Wanda on Live TV over Icardis wrangles

first_imgMauro Icardi needs to return to Inter’s dressing room and clarify things, according to Antonio Cassano to the wife of the player Wanda Nara on live TV.Wanda who is the agent of Icardi defended the player’s position after losing the captaincy two weeks ago, during Sunday’s transmission of Tiki Taka.“In football, there are so many injustices like this penalty, Perisic’s attitude and keeping Icardi at home, someone who gave everything to Inter but is now being painted like a monster, which he’s not,” she said as cited on Football Italia.“We all saw Perisic’s penalty sitting here, but his gesture didn’t give out tranquillity. It takes respect to be a captain and Mauro has it for everyone at Inter, their colours, and their jersey.Politano’s celebration looking like a mock of Icardi’s celebration🤔 Perisic trying to diffuse it is an example of another club that is in a bit of disarray that is going on behind the scenes #SerieA #Icardi #Inter— Soccer Report (@ReportFootball2) February 24, 2019“Mauro must go to the dressing room to resolve problems? Enough of this rubbish. What is it, the dressing room, physiotherapy?“He’s done nothing. It’s all non-existent drama.”That prompted Cassano, an ex-Nerazzurri forward to weigh into the matter: “They’re playing for third place while waiting to get back Icardi…Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“They need his goals. He needs to go into the dressing room and clarify his position with the players until June for his own sake.“I say it as an interista: he needs to talk to those who have problems with him, shake their hands and in June what will be, will be.“If they took the armband off me? I would’ve gone crazy, but he doesn’t have to stay out of the team until June.“Neither the club nor Spalletti are crazy. There were some problems, but they’ve clarified them for the good of Inter.Per chi si fosse perso il battibecco tra Cassano e Wandita… 😉— dondiego (@dondiegotheone) February 24, 2019Cassano also defended Perisic’s action after suggesting Icardi isn’t in good terms with a section of the players.“There was nothing in Perisic’s gesture, but I think Icardi has problems with the Slavs in the squad.”Inter managed to secure one point from the tie (3-3) after blowing away a two-goal lead.last_img read more
