Shearer slams ‘frustrating’ Man Utd star for looking uninterested under Solskjaer

first_imgAlan Shearer believes Anthony Martial should lose his spot at the top of Manchester United’s attack after a series of “frustrating” performances. Martial has scored two goals in his last nine appearances in all competitions and put in a flat performance as United drew 0-0 with Wolves on Saturday. The Frenchman did not manage to fire off a shot during the stalemate at Old Trafford, which was the third consecutive league game in which United failed to score following Marcus Rashford’s lower back injury. Martial has so far failed to shoulder the responsibility that has increased with Rashford’s absence, which is expected to last for another month at least. And the Premier League’s all-time top goalscorer Shearer has been left seriously unimpressed by Martial’s efforts.Advertisement “If there is one man who sums up United’s struggles in front of goal, it is Anthony Martial,” Shearer told The Sun. “He just looks uninterested. I never get the impression he enjoys playing football — which is something I’ve not really come across too much in the game before. “That role isn’t just about scoring goals. You also have to bring your team-mates into the game and do plenty of running to get in behind the defenders.

Most of these players are from poor backgrounds and a lot is expected from them,” he added. “Also, most of the agents that surround them never tell them the truth. The good thing about Nwakali is that he is still young and has age on his side. “All he needs to do is counsel himself and realise that when you forget the root that took you to success, you start to lose the beauty of what made you who you are. “A lot of Nigerians are expecting his progression but it is unfortunate because of what he has passed through over the years. He also needs to check the kind of lifestyle he is living and know that without football, he is a nobody.” “The only thing he must do to bounce back is to work very hard. To some, working hard is an abomination because we believe in godfathers and have to pay money to be someone. We must not forget that the highest contact we can have is God who deposited this talent in us. “So, it is mandatory to work very hard to complement our God-given talents. Hard work is non-negotiable in terms of success and without that, suffering and endurance you can never be anybody. read also:Coronavirus’ issue makes life more difficult in Spain – Nwakali “Even when things are not going well, it is up to him [Nwakali] to be calm because everyone and everything in this world have its time. I can only hope that he will work hard to be back again.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Hard work is non-negotiable for Kelechi Nwakali if he hopes to put his fading career back on track, according to Emmanuel Amuneke. Nwakali Nwakali burst into limelight after captaining the Nigeria Under-17 team that paraded the likes of Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze to win the 2015 U17 World Cup in Chile. His inspiring displays earned him the tournament’s Golden Ball ahead of Lille’s Osimhen and Mali’s Aly Malle. Nwakali’s stock rose after joining Arsenal on a five-year deal from Nigeria’s Diamond Football Academy. And after failed loan expeditions at MVV Maastricht, VVV Venlo and Porto B, the youngster was shipped out of the Emirates to Huesca in January. Before football went into a hiatus owing to Covid-19, Nwakali did not play a single game for the Spanish second-tier side. As questions continue to emanate on why the former teenage sensation has failed to justify his ratings, 1994 African Player of the Year, Amuneke – who worked with him as coach of the Nigeria U17 team – opens the lid on his stuttering growth. “There is nothing to doubt about Nwakali’s talent. There are some qualities that are natural gifts from God and he possesses them,” Amuneke told Goal. “As a player and coach, I have seen a lot of good players and midfielders but the kind of quality Nwakali possesses is what I have not seen in any other Nigerian. “He is a kind of player that can see beyond what other players are seeing, a player that has a vision and a player who can play a ball that can result in a goal.”last_img read more

DOH records 35% drop in firecracker injuries

first_imgHealth Secretary Francisco Duque said there was a 35 percent decline in fireworks-related injuries nationwide from Dec. 21, 2019 to Jan. 1, 2020. “We expect the number of cases to increase as there are late reports still coming from the regions,” Duque said. “Most additional injuries at this time come from children picking up unexploded fireworks from the streets.” MANILA – The numberof injuries due to fireworks has decreased in the run-up toNew Year’s Day 2020, according to the Department of Health (DOH).

We hope the Duterte administration will be able to create a legacy of an absolute ban on fireworks so we’ll have zero injuries,” Duque said. “Maraming ligtas na paraan para makapag ingay.”/PN No reported deaths due to firecrackers so far, Duque said. “But overall, the National CapitalRegion has registered a 16 percent drop in the number of fireworks-relatedinjuries,” the DOH secretary said, adding that only four percent of thefireworks-related injuries required amputation as most of the injury cases werejust burn and eye injuries.

PREEMPTIVE STEP: PUV drivers told to wear masks vs nCoV

first_imgThe transport sector which is beingoverseen by the LTFRB is the latest to take preemptive steps to protect itsstakeholders from this new viral infection. Operators of transport terminalswere directed to ensure the proper sanitation and cleanliness of theirfacilities as well as provide facemasks and disinfectants to passengers forfree. For its part, Vallacar Transit,operator of Ceres buses, confirmed having disseminated the LTFRB order to itsdrivers and conductors. Non-compliance would be a violation oftheir jeepney franchises, explained Parcon. It seems to start with a fever,followed by a dry cough and then, after a week, leads to shortness of breath. In Memorandum Circular 2020-005, LTFRBrequired the drivers and conductors “to properly wear facemasks at all timeswhile on duty, and for all franchise holders to ensure their compliance.” But even prior to LTFRB’s order, saidJade Seballos, the legal and media relations officer of Vallacar Transit, theywere already orienting their people about the importance of personal hygiene,especially hand washing. FAITH IN THE TIME OF A VIRUS OUTBREAK. Masked devotees of Nuestra Señora dela Candelaria (Our Lady of Candles) light candles at the Jaro Metropolitan Cathedral in Jaro, Iloilo City. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN Coronaviruses are common, andtypically cause mild respiratory conditions, such as a cough or runny nose. ILOILO City – Public utility vehicledrivers and conductors here have been ordered to wear facemasks by the LandTransportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) as the government stepsup precautionary measures to deter a possible spread of the novel coronavirus(2019-nCoV). Meanwhile, the Iloilo City Alliance ofOperators and Drivers Transport Cooperative (ICAODTC) had a meeting over theweekend with member drivers, operators and public assistant officers(conductors) about the LTFRB order. All drivers and public utility vehicleoperators must comply with the LTFRB order or they would be meted withsanctions, according to Raymundo Parcon, president of the Iloilo City LoopAlliance of Jeepney Operators and Drivers Association (ICLAJODA). The company would be distributing handsanitizers to its drivers although it is having a hard time procuring a bigvolume of facemasks, added Seballos. Avoiding eating raw or undercookedanimal products is also advised. But some are more serious – such asthe deadly SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and Middle East RespiratorySyndrome (Mers). Seballos also assured the ridingpublic that Vallar Transit is fastidious about the cleanliness of their Ceresbuses. But in more severe cases, infectioncan cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and evendeath. People are advised to avoid closecontact with people suffering from acute respiratory infections; wash handsregularly, especially after direct contact with ill people or theirenvironment; and avoid unprotected contact with farm or wild animals. This current outbreak – known as novelcoronavirus (nCoV) – is a new strain that has not been previously identified inhumans. “Bisanmagasto sa part namon, para man ini sa amon safety,” said Parcon. ICAODTC board secretary Rizal Alidosaid they were all cooperative. Most victims have been elderly people,suffering from other chronic diseases. The World Health Organization isadvising people in affected areas to follow standard procedures to reduce thechance of catching the virus. They include hand and respiratory hygiene as wellas safe food practices. He will also be distributingfacemasks, said Parcon, and would further direct drivers to bring with themdisinfectants (alcohol or hand sanitizers). Parcon would be calling for a meetingtoday with ICLAJODA chapter presidents and discuss the LTFRB order. Theassociation has around 3,000 members. Those with symptoms of coronavirusshould practice “cough etiquette”, including maintaining distance, coveringcoughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or the inside of an elbow, andwashing hands.

Lacson seeks to limit Bacolod-Silay Airport to sweeper flights

first_imgOn Monday, Lacson and Bacolod-Silay Airport Manager Percy Malonesio led the inspection of the installation of thermal scanners and swab-testing booths at the airport. Meanwhile, Provincial Administrator Atty. Rayfrando Diaz said the airport is already ready for the resumption of commercial flights scheduled on June 15. BY DOMINIQUE GABRIEL BAÑAGA BACOLOD City – Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson is pushing to maintain some restrictions at the Bacolod-Silay Airport in Silay City, Negros Occidental. Passengers on the special flights will be paying for their own fare. “We will allow those who have already bought their tickets to take the sweeper flights,” he said. Commercial flights from Manila are expected to depart at 11 a.m. and arrive in Bacolod-Silay Airport around 12:30 p.m. Locally-stranded individuals (LSIs) in Negros Occidental and Bacolod City can also book for seats on a return flight, which will leave at 1 p.m. Diaz said sweeper flights for LSIs will serve as an “exercise,” which will be improved before the resumption of commercial flights. With the expected resumption of commercial flights on June 15, Lacson intends to make an appeal to concern agencies to limit the commercial air traffic to sweeper flights. He furthered that the province has already installed a thermal scanner at the airport terminal. It has complete parts and components like the monitor and an alarm system.   “If a passenger’s body temperature reaches 37.6 it will immediately alarm indicating that our personnel will remove him or her from the line for examination,” Diaz said. After the thermal scanner, passengers will then proceed to the tourism booth where they will give their health cards that contain information for contact tracing. The next stop would be at the right side of the exit where the swab booth is located.  At least five medical technicians will be assigned for getting swab samples to be submitted to the provincial testing center at the Teresita Jalandoni Provincial Hospital. “After the swabbing, passengers will the proceed far right and wait for the vehicle provided by the LGU (local government unit) that will pick them up going to their respective homes for self-quarantine,” Diaz added./PNlast_img read more

20 Jaro houses on COVID-19 lockdown

first_imgThe lockdown was imposed on Sunday, June 21 and will last until the RT-PCR test results of the patient’s close contacts will be released. Loma revealed that subsequent to the announcement of RT-PCR test, the LSI was immediately brought by the Iloilo City Emergency Responders (ICER) to a quarantine facility, particularly the St. Therese MTCC Hospital. Village watchmen barangay and village councilmen were also tapped to guard the area./PN Camalig village head Nestor Loma confirmed yesterday the City Health Office (CHO) recommended sealing off the neighborhood to preempt a possible massive spread of the infection. “Gintawgan ako sang doctor namon sa Jaro district nga positive ang resulta sang RT-PCR test sang 22-anyos,” said Loma on a radio interview over Aksyon Radyo Iloilo. He came home last June 9 from Navotas in Metro Manila. This LSI, upon his return, was subjected to both rapid and real time-polymerase reaction tests (RT-PCR) at Diamond Jubilee Hall. Loma, however, could not yet determine the exact number of the LSI’s close contacts. ILOILO City – Local authorities ordered the lockdown of at least 20 houses at Barangay Camalig’s Zone 5 in Jaro district after a locally stranded individual (LSI) who recently returned there was found out to be a carrier of SARS-coV-2, the virus which causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). On June 20, the Department of Health (DOH) in Region 6 confirmed that this LSI was found out to be infected with COVID-19, citing his confirmatory RT-PCR tests results.  “After nag-positive gin pick-up ang pasyente sang ICER para dal-on sa facility quarantine,” Loma furthered, saying he requested the CHO to enforce lockdown on the 20 houses with residents who had possible contact with the WV Patient 173. However, Loma said he received information that while under home quarantine, the WV Patient No. 174 engaged in drinking session together his relatives and neighbors. There at least 100 individuals living in the 20 houses but not all of them had exposure to the patient. This prompted the city government’s COVID-19 team to allow the LSI to undergo 14-day home strict quarantine while waiting for his RT-PCR test. While under lockdown, Loma said the affected residents are not allowed to go out of their houses for the meantime, even to buy provisions. Loma identified the LSI as a 22-year-old male and was classified as Western Visayas (WV) Patient No. 174. The barangay will supply food and water to every household as well as their other needs, he added.   His rapid test result, which came out also on that day, turned out negative.last_img read more
