The organization was founded in 2011 to resolve the shortcomings of clean water access in the developing world, where 40% of water points are not working at any given time. 20-70% of installed handpumps in Sub-Saharan Africa are no longer functioning. In the estimated 1-4 billion people without safe drinking water, millions more have been stripped of a water source they used to have. In Africa alone it is estimated that in the past 20 years, 70 million people have lost access to safe water due to a failed source.You can find out more about this important cause here, and access the auction to Brooklyn Bowl and Live For Live Music tickets, among the many other prizes, here.1 Pair of Tickets For The Following Shows From CEG Presents:11/11 The Hip Abduction with Madaila @ Drom11/11 Reggae Night: Top Shotta Band ft.

Mourinho becomes second highest-paid manager

first_imgRelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win EPL: Son fires four past Southampton Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says Jose Mourinho has become the second highest-paid manager in world football after signing a monstrous £15 million-a-year contract to become Tottenham manager.  It has emerged that Mourinho will earn almost double the wage of his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino after taking charge at the north London club on Wednesday morning.This is the first time in Tottenham’s history that they have appointed a manager of Mourinho’s pedigree – he has won 25 trophies in his managerial career – and it seems they have paid a hefty price.Mourinho’s £15 million-a-year salary sees him jump straight into the list of the game’s highest earners at No 2.He still trails nemesis Pep Guardiola though, with the Manchester City boss signing a new two-year contract in 2018 worth £20 million per season.The Spaniard is the best-paid boss in world football but has proven to be worth every penny after winning back-to-back Premier League titles at the Etihad.Below Mourinho in third place is Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone. The fiery Argentine has been in charge of the Spanish giants since 2011, winning La Liga in 2013-14 and taking the club to two Champions League finals.Simeone earns a cool £13 million-a-year and has a contract with Atletico until 2022.China is renowned for paying big wages and it is no surprise that two of the top five highest-earning managers come from there.Rafa Benitez takes home £11.5 million per season with Dalian Yifang after joining when he left Newcastle over the summer while Italian legend Fabio Cannavaro earns £10 million per year for his work with Guangzhou Evergrande.  Zinedine Zidane shares fifth place with Cannavaro. The Real Madrid boss made a sensational return to the Bernabeu towards the end of last season and managed to negotiate a £10 million-a-year salary.Antonio Conte comes next with his £9 million-a-season salary at Inter Milan. The Italian returned to his homeland over the summer and has started extremely well. His side sit just one point behind Juventus after 12 matches.The rest of the top 10 is made up of three European heavyweights. Paris Saint-Germain’s Thomas Tuchel is paid £8 million per season as he looks to finally end the club’s woes in the Champions League.Tags: Pep GuardiolaTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more

Four-week lay-off for Westwood

first_img The 24-year-old was stretchered off during Sunday’s 2-1 win over Leicester following a strong tackle by Jamie Vardy. Villa were confident the injury was not as bad as first feared but the former Crewe player will still miss up to five games, starting with Saturday’s derby at West Brom. Press Association Westwood has been a key man for Villa manager Paul Lambert since signing from Crewe in 2012 and set up Ciaran Clark’s equaliser against the Foxes. He adds to a lengthy injury list and joins defenders Nathan Baker (knee) and Ron Vlaar and Philippe Senderos (both calf) on the sidelines while striker Libor Kozak is still recovering from a broken leg, Fabian Delph has returned to training following a dislocated shoulder to temper the Westwood news but Villa are still stretched at the back. Manchester United loanee Tom Cleverley also came off against Leicester with a bruised foot and is a doubt for the trip to The Hawthorns. center_img Aston Villa midfielder Ashley Westwood has been ruled out for up to four weeks with medial ligament damage, the Barclays Premier League club have announced.last_img read more
