Zidane praises Simeone ahead of Champions League final

first_imgZinedine Zidane had few equals as a player but heading into his first Champions League final as a coach, he admits that unlike Atletico Madrid counterpart Diego Simeone he still has much to learn.The former France playmaker, who was promoted from Real’s reserve team to replace Rafa Benitez in January, steered the side to a runners-up finish in La Liga and Saturday’s final in Milan.Real have won 21 out of 26 games under Zidane and lost two, scoring 71 goals and giving away 18.Simeone led Atletico to their second Champions League final in three years.“He has everything that a coach needs but above all, he knows his team and his players well, which is the most important thing,” Zidane told a news conference on Tuesday.“I have a lot to learn but my enthusiasm to learn is tremendous. This will make me improve. I still have a long journey to be an important coach.”Saturday cannot come soon enough for Zidane, who could become the seventh man to win the European Cup as a player and a coach.His spectacular volley in the final in Glasgow in 2002 gave Real their ninth European title and they claimed a record 10th crown in 2014.“I’m excited and happy,” the 43-year-old said. “I am looking forward to the final, to take advantage of this opportunity.“I know how lucky I am to have the chance to be in a final with this club.”Zidane was assistant to Real coach Carlo Ancelotti when Los Blancos beat Atletico 4-1 in extra time in the final two years ago today.“When it comes to finals, I only know what it feels like as a player and as an assistant,” he said. “I will experience it now as coach with calmness, determination and patience.”Zidane played five seasons for Real and knew when he took over in January he knew exactly what was expected of him.“The pressure is always there,” he said. “It’s part of the work and I like it. I have been a player and I had pressure but I have more as a coach. Failure would be not to give our all.”Real failed to beat Atletico in La Liga this season, losing 1-0 at home and drawing 1-1 at the Vicente Calderon stadium,“It’s going to be a difficult match,” Zidane said. “I don’t think holding possession will be good enough. Atletico are a complete team.”last_img read more

Rehab center approved

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson The rehabilitation center has been opposed by some residents of Leona Valley’s tightly knit agricultural community of about 1,000. Opponents fear the facility could jeopardize their small-town lifestyle and safety. Because of residents’ concerns, the Leona Valley Town Council asked the commission in a December letter to reject the rehabilitation center’s application. Wednesday’s nod from the commission had little effect on the council’s position about the center. “My personal position doesn’t matter, but my position … is against it only because the community is against it,” said Mike Waters, council president. Waters said that Catherine L. Savage, a representative from Narconon Southern California, attended a monthly meeting of the council last year and announced plans for the facility. He said there was little discussion then because the council had received no advance information. Doors to a Scientology-based drug rehabilitation center are expected to open near Leona Valley after county planners gave conditional approval Wednesday for the facility in rustic Bouquet Canyon. But first Narconon Southern California has to do more community outreach to the small community in the Leona Valley area about 10 miles from the proposed adult drug-and-alcohol center. Such outreach was among conditions imposed Wednesday by the county’s Regional Planning Commission during a public hearing for a permit to develop the center on a 30.4-acre site. Commissioners voted unanimously in support of the permit, but their conditions must be met before operations can begin. Sam Dea, supervising county regional planner, said Narconon Southern California was also asked to hold open houses and meet with the Leona Valley Town Council on a regular basis to provide information about the center to residents. Later, he said, residents were notified by letters in December that the county commission would hold a public hearing, and the letters gave details. The community then had about a week to send written responses to planners, Waters said, so the council quickly drafted survey forms and dropped them in mailboxes. Asked for responses within two days, residents called for the council to oppose a permit for the facility at 36491 Bouquet Canyon Road. No new buildings are planned for the facility on the canyon property that was once a children’s boarding school. Instead, the former school buildings will be converted into the treatment center housing up to 66 rehabilitation clients at a time, plus employees. Plans for the property include three dormitories, a kitchen and dining area, classrooms, staff facilities, a 29-vehicle parking lot and a swimming pool, according to a commission staff report. The parking parking lot must be repaired and the driveway improved under conditions imposed by the commission, Dea said. He said Narconon Southern California will have to fulfill all conditions before opening for business and then will need final approval from commissioners. Savage is expected to attend the Leona Valley Town Council’s next meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 9. The council meets at the Leona Valley Improvement Association Community Building, 8367 Elizabeth Lake Road. Savage did not return phone calls for comment.

GOVERNMENT MUST ABOLISH GROSSLY UNFAIR UNIVERSAL SOCIAL CHARGE – DOHERTY

first_imgSinn Féin Spokesperson on Finance Pearse Doherty has moved his party’s Private Members motion which seeks the abolition of the Universal Social Charge.Speaking from the Dáil Deputy Doherty said that the Universal Social Charge (USC) is little more than a tax on the working poor and should be abolished.The furious Gaoth Dobhair TD said “I am moving this motion tonight and in so doing am calling on all those who claim to oppose this unfair tax to support our motion. “The abolition of the Universal Social Charge is an issue which demands the full support of each elected representative in the Dáil. It is little more than a tax on the working poor.“This tax needs to be abolished and instead the Government should work on building a fairer tax system by creating a progressive tax base that taxes fairly and equalises wealth.“Fine Gael and Labour have said that they will ‘review’ the Universal Social Charge. They have also proposed at least 32 other reviews in the Programme for Government.But Deputy Doherty added “A review is not good enough. Fine Gael and Labour should make a stand for the people and abolish this grossly unfair tax.” ENDSGOVERNMENT MUST ABOLISH GROSSLY UNFAIR UNIVERSAL SOCIAL CHARGE – DOHERTY was last modified: March 29th, 2011 by StephenShare 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) Tags:Fine GaelIrish Labour PartyPearse DohertySinn FeinUniversal Social Chargelast_img read more
