0Shares0000‘No problems with Mourinho’: Paul Pogba with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFPARIS, France, Apr 22 – Paul Pogba insisted Sunday that he has no problems with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho despite a difficult season which has seen the French star dropped on several occasions.Pogba, who has even been linked with a summer move away from Old Trafford, said that he always accepts Mourinho’s decisions and that the best response he can make to being snubbed is to improve on the pitch. “I have no problem with Mourinho,” Pogba told Canal+ on Sunday.“I also believe that he has no problem with me. He is the coach, he makes the decisions. Me, I am a player, I accept it and I have to respond on the pitch, that’s all.”Midfield star Pogba revealed that Mourinho never explains why he is getting dropped or substituted in a match.“No, it all depends on the coach. There are some who like to talk to the players. Mourinho, when he makes a choice, you have to accept it.”Pogba has been in and out of the United team as Mourinho sought to chase down rivals Manchester City, who ran away with the Premier League title.Eyebrows were raised when he started both legs of the Champions League last-16 tie against Sevilla on the bench, and could not prevent United from being eliminated when he did come on.He was then widely criticised for a lacklustre display in a 1-0 home loss to West Bromwich Albion which handed the title to City — the latest in a long line of disappointing efforts from the former Juventus star since his move to United two years ago.There was even talk that Mourinho has told United to put Pogba up for sale, just days after City manager Pep Guardiola said he had been offered the chance to sign the midfielder by his agent in January.But Pogba said he understood Mourinho’s decision to tinker with his line-up.“There is a system. Sometimes, if you have to defend, you must defend. Mourinho has made me captain, he gave me the keys, the responsibilities at a great club like Manchester United,” added Pogba.“For the time being, I am at Manchester United and I am only thinking about the present. We are in the FA Cup final, I have a World Cup to come.“Transfers, all that sort of thing, are not on my mind.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluMACHAKOS, Kenya, May 20- Goals in either half from Kevin Thairu and substitute Cornelius Juma saw a resurgent Nakumatt FC beat Tusker FC 2-1 on Sunday afternoon in Machakos to record their third win of the season and move off the bottom of the Kenyan Premier League standings.Brian Osumba had equalized for the brewers but Juma stepped off the bench to score the winner on the hour mark as Robert Matano picked his second consecutive loss as Tusker head coach. The brewers suffered a 2-1 home loss to Kariobangi Sharks last weekend and were looking to get back to winning ways and move into the top half of the table, but a spirited Nakumatt side was relentless fighting to the last drop of sweat.It was a fast paced start to the game, each of the two sides eager to break the deadlock earliest possible. It was Tusker who had the first real opportunity of the game with Timothy Otieno’s shot from the near post being blocked by Lucas Indeche.Minutes later, Ssempala had a glorious opportunity to break the deadlock when the ball was cut back to him from the right, but his final effort at curling the ball into the top right corner was futile as the ball went over.Those two missed chances came to haunt them on the quarter hour mark when Nakumatt opened the scoring through Kevin Thairu.The midfielder blasted the ball into David Okello’s right hand side after being set up by Moses Odhiambo following a sweeping counter attacking move from Nakumatt.The goal injected some confidence into the Nakumatt side and they began to play with more fluidity and were more threatening.Nakumatt FC midfielder Kevin Thairu goes past Tusker FC’s Apollo Otieno during their Kenyan Premier League clash in Machakos on May 20, 2018.

Marlon Tangauzi controlled the ball inside the box unaware of Boniface Mukhekhe behind him with the Nakumatt stealing the ball in a dangerous area.However, he failed to punish the mistake shooting wide with only Okello to beat.They were made to pay for that missed chance two minutes later when Osumba restored parity with a low shot inside the box after being picked out by a Muchiri pass across the park.Nakumatt FC skipper John Njoroge vies for the ball with Tusker FC’s Mathew Tayo Odongo during their Kenyan Premier League clash in Machakos on May 20, 2018.

WEST COVINA – Mayor Mike Touhey accused Councilman Roger Hernandez’s campaign manager of voter fraud Friday for registering to vote out of Hernandez’s West Covina home while living in Los Angeles. The campaign manager, Paz Oliverez, acknowledged Friday changing her voter registration to West Covina from her actual home address in Hollywood. “I thought you could vote anywhere, because when I went to college I voted there, even though I was still living at my parents’ house,” she said. “It was a mistake on my part. If it is that big an issue, I won’t vote. I did not vote absentee yet out of West Covina.” Oliverez called Touhey’s accusation “just one more dirty trick” to try to damage Hernandez’s reputation before Tuesday’s election. West Covina police forwarded their complaints to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for independent investigation. West Covina Police Chief Frank Wills has described as preposterous Hernandez’s claim of a police role in a political conspiracy orchestrated by the mayor. According to the L.A. County Registrar’s office, Oliverez listed Hernandez’s address on her most recent voter registration form. Registering at a location other than one’s place of residence is illegal under federal election laws, said Marcia Ventura, a spokeswoman for the registrar’s office. “What is listed in a voter registration form is done so under penalty of perjury,” said Ventura. “If someone brought this to our attention, we would refer it to the DA’s Voter Integrity Unit.” The penalty for perjury in California is up to four years in state prison, according to the state penal code. Touhey said he requested the voter registration status after reading in Oliverez’s formal complaint to the West Covina police that she was “home alone” at Hernandez’s condominium before police arrived to investigate last week’s complaint. “But she gave the police her Leland Way address” in the police report, Touhey said. firstname.lastname@example.org (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2306160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Oliverez, who is listed on Hernandez’s campaign disclosure forms as a consultant, gave police her Leland Avenue address in Los Angeles when officers responded Oct. 26 to a neighbor’s call of possible domestic violence at the councilman’s Kauai Street condominium. Hernandez was hostile and threatening to officers responding to the nonemergency call, police said. One officer reached for his Taser when the councilman attempted to close a garage door on the officer, according to the police report. Hernandez and Oliverez have denied any argument occurred in the residence. They have filed complaints with West Covina police, claiming the officers’ actions were politically motivated and driven by Touhey.

Shay Given has opened up on the death of his mother, Agnes, in his new autobiography, Shay: Any Given Saturday.Agnes Given died of lung cancer in 1981.Shay was just four years of age and the fifth of six children under 11 at the time. The former Republic of Ireland goalkeeper’s new book goes on sale this Thursday. In it, he recalls the memories he has of his mother.“I’m four years old. A grand-looking woman of just 41, her glossy, jet-black hair falling across her emaciated shoulders, lies in a bed in a Manorhamilton hospital, slap-bang on the N16 in County Leitrim, surrounded by machines beeping, lines feeding, drugs seeping,” Given writes.“She knows she will not get out of bed again, won’t chase me or any of her other five children, will never get to see them grow up. Her days as a midwife in Strabane are over.“In fact, most of her days are nearly over. “The six kids sit looking at each other in misplaced wonder, tripping over the endless gifts handed over by nurses and doctors, all of these professionals hoping that the presents will help solve a problem their medical talents cannot.“Tugs-of-war over unopened packages break out left, right and centre as the excited children try and forget what is happening, what is at stake.”At the time, Agnes Given has just 12 weeks to live.Poignantly, Shay writes: “Agnes Given, my mum, dying, me aged four.“Agnes Given, a woman I can barely remember, a mother I will never forget.” Extracts from the book were carried in this week’s Sunday Independent and can be read here – http://www.independent.ie/sport/soccer/a-woman-i-can-barely-remember-but-a-mother-i-will-never-forget-shay-given-opens-up-on-his-mothers-death-36227861.htmlShay: Any Given Saturday is published by Trinity Mirror Sport Media.
