Senior players at Barcelona ‘totally against’ Pochettino as new manager

first_img Even important figures behind the scenes are encouraging president Josep Bartomeu to look elsewhere. It is claimed how the club and manager have remained in contact since January and Pochettino even had dinner with Bartomeu last month. Pochettino’s loss could be Xavi’s gain with the former midfielder touted for a return to his boyhood club. There are serious concerns that the size of the job would come too soon for Xavi who still has a year left on his contract managing in Qatar. read also:Messi now ready to leave Barcelona That could open up a shock move for Thierry Henry who has emerged as another candidate for the job. The Frenchman is currently managing Montreal Impact in MLS, having endured a dreadful stint at AS Monaco in the 2018-19 season. Other potential candidates include Ronald Koeman, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa and Roberto Martinez. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Mauricio Pochettino may have talked himself out of the Barcelona job with senior players “totally against” his appointment. Chiefs at the fallen giants want the Argentine to rebuild the squad as they plan a huge restructure behind the scenes after their humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich. Current boss Quique Setien is technically still manager but the writing is on the wall for the beleaguered boss. Poch, 48, has been without work since his was sacked as Tottenham manager in November. But his previous comments about managing Barca appear to have come back to haunt him. The gaffer once said he’d rather work on a farm than manage at the Nou Camp because of his affinity with neighbours Espanyol. Pochettino made 318 appearances for their rivals as a player and later returned to the club as manager. The Argentine even labelled Barca legend Xavi “his enemy” three years ago after the Spaniard allegedly tipped Dele Alli for a move to Manchester United. AS report how Barca’s senior players like Lionel Messi, who have a huge influence on decisions at the club, refuse to bury the hatchet.

Mata at the double in United win

first_imgJuan Mata inspired Manchester United to a 4-0 victory at Newcastle which took them into the Barclays Premier League’s top six. The win was not without controversy, with referee Kevin Friend – the official who had to deal with Alan Pardew’s head-butt on Hull’s David Meyler – coming under fire for awarding the free-kick from which Mata gave United a first-half lead. However, there were no complaints thereafter as Mata extended the lead five minutes after the break and further strikes from Javier Hernandez and substitute Adnan Januzaj wrapped up the victory. The defeat was Newcastle’s fourth in five league games, a run which has seen them score just one goal, and in truth there was little prospect of them completing a first league double over United since 1931 from the moment that Mata struck. There was an end-of-season feel about the game before kick-off, with Moyes keeping one eye on Munich and opposite number Pardew missing five of the men who started the 1-0 win at Old Trafford in December. As a result, there was inevitably a makeshift look about both sides with United patient in their build-up, in which a deep-sitting Marouane Fellaini figured prominently, as they tried to find space for Hernandez and Mata. Newcastle’s approach was more direct with Davide Santon, lining up at right-back rather than on the left, making life difficult for Patrice Evra to supply a series of dangerous crosses. It was he who produced the second-minute ball from which Dan Gosling, making his first Barclays Premier League start for the Magpies since December 2011, headed just wide, and he who picked out striker Papiss Cisse to force a fine 24th-minute save from Anders Lindegaard with a glancing header. But, too often, the home side squandered possession in promising positions to let the visitors off the hook. The 25-year-old Spaniard struck twice to take his tally to three goals in his last two games and pay off another slice of his £37.1million transfer fee. On a day when manager David Moyes was without the injured Wayne Rooney, and decided to make eight changes to the side which drew 1-1 with Bayern Munich in midweek ahead of Wednesday night’s return leg, United ran out deserved winners as the Magpies’ early promise dissolved. Moyes’ men lost winger Ashley Young with a dislocated finger after just 18 minutes and home keeper Rob Elliot had little to do for much of the first half. However, the game turned six minutes before the break and it did so in controversial circumstances. Gosling was furious to be penalised for a trip on Darren Fletcher on the edge of the box, but as the home fans made their feelings known to Friend, Mata stepped up to curl a delicious left-foot free-kick high into the top corner with Elliot powerless to resist. The game could have been effectively over in the final minute of the half when, after Friend had allowed play to continue with central defender Mike Williamson appealing for a foul by Hernandez, the Mexican ran on to Shinji Kagawa’s through-ball to shoot past Elliot, only to see the ball come back off the foot of the post. However, any hopes of a fightback were dealt a fatal blow within five minutes of the restart and this time Newcastle had no-one to blame but themselves. Skipper Fabricio Coloccini’s ambitious attempt to chest a long ball to full-back Massadio Haidara fell short and Kagawa stole in to pick out Hernandez’s run. The striker fed Mata inside the box and he cleverly side-stepped Coloccini’s desperate lunge before slotting calmly into the bottom corner. Hernandez might have made it 3-0 with a snapshot which flew over on the hour, and it was then that the Magpies opted for change with Hatem Ben Arfa replacing the ineffectual Luuk De Jong. But Hernandez made amends with 25 minutes remaining when he slid home from close range after Januzaj and Kagawa teamed up to play him in. Lindegaard had to turn away Cisse’s curling 71st-minute effort and then produced a remarkable stop to deny the same man from just six yards before Mata set up Januzaj to complete the rout with an audacious back-heeled pass.

Hidden Cyclone on course for Hilly Way date at Cork

first_img He said: “He’ll definitely go to Cork on Sunday, all being well. “He had no race the last day.

LGBT resource center expands to include lounge

first_imgTwo years ago, a comparative study of LGBT resource centers at top academic institutions found that USC’s center, at 169 square feet at the time of the study, was the smallest in the country. Since then, USC’s LGBT resource center has been expanded to include a new lounge, dubbed the “Lavender Lounge.”“[The study] did draw some awareness to the size of the center,” said Rev. Kelby Harrison, the center’s director. “We were given about a 270-square-foot room to turn into a student lounge, which has been very popular.”Ronnie Dong, a junior majoring in communication and sociology and the communication coordinator of the center, cited the center as a space of comfort for LGBT students.“The Lavender Lounge is a really chill and safe place,” Dong said in an email to the Daily Trojan. “LGBT students can go [there] to do work, take a nap, grab a snack or coffee or just come to unwind and doodle on the walls, all of which are things I’ve done.”According to Harrison, the lounge has built a community among USC’s LGBT students in a way that was not possible before.“We certainly have a consistent group of students who make use of it daily or at least weekly,” Hamson said.Dong agrees that the “Lav Lounge,” as it is known, is consistently populated with students.“It’s small enough that it allows students to mingle and meet new peers as well,” they said. “It’s a comfortable space where anyone can come to relax or do whatever and having that accepting atmosphere at work is so relieving. Being at a place where I know my pronouns are respected — and I don’t have to hide my queerness — has really helped create a positive impact at USC.”Lead undergraduate student worker Angel Zayas explained that the renovation has had a noticeable effect on the amount of students who come into the center, but that the space is lacking.“I would say 10 times the number of people come in now,” Zayas said. “We could still use a lot more space, but I guess we’re working with what we have.”Zayas feels that a comfortable space for not only the LGBT community, but also other communities on campus, is important. However, he believes that supporting minorities should be more of a priority for USC.“USC has a lot of funds that go into a lot of other things,” Zayas said. “But they don’t see the value in having a space where marginalized communities can not only be around each other, but also escape. Especially in times like this, under a Trump administration and with hate crimes happening basically every day now. We have a lot of money going into the [USC village], and I’m sure it’s going to be amazing. That’s profitable, but serving certain communities isn’t always profitable, but it’s necessary.”Additionally, Dong feels that the LGBT presence is smaller than they originally expected it to be.“I wouldn’t say that the LGBT community is weak, but that it’s a niche and rather small and insulated,” they said. “The queer clubs that exist and the resource center [are] supportive and a good place to go for support and like-minded peers, but I still feel that overall USC doesn’t really tend to openly support or assist those marginalized identities, including but not limited to just the LGBT community.”Despite these concerns, Harrison has noticed a growing sense of acceptance and inclusion that has extended past the center.“Students make connections with each other there,” Harrison said. “Then, they can build friendships and relationships outside of that space, which is also healthy for our student organizations across the board.”In addition to allowing for expansion, the University also doubled the LGBT resource center’s programming resources and staff budget in response to the comparative study, allowing the center to hire another staff person and more student workers. However, even with the extra resources and expansion, USC’s LGBT resource center is still smaller than the other centers compared in the original 2013 study.“We’re still a couple hundred square feet smaller than the second smallest of our peer institutions, which is Rutgers,” Harrison said. The 2013 study found that the average size of LGBT resource centers is about 1,200 square feet. Rutgers University’s LGBT center has an area of 700 square feet, noticeably larger than the size of USC’s center even after it was expanded about 270 square feet. Harrison notes that more space at the center would mean more opportunities for the LGBT community at USC. “If there was more space, we’d have more programming, more community building, more people using the lounge,” Harrison said. “We know that students sometimes will stop by and it’s too crowded, so they’ll leave again.” According to Harrison, there is no space to expand the center in its current location, so the center hopes to relocate to an area with more space.Dong would also like to see the center expand and continue to receive greater resources. “I think that these small programs can always do with being expanded further,” Dong said. “Though I wasn’t aware of the study, I’m not surprised at all. Hearing from friends at many of the UCs, they have a lot more space or resources or clubs for their LGBT students, and I think that USC could also take a page out of that and follow suit.”last_img read more
