Simeone: “Give me the VAR; before there was not much justice”

first_imgHow good is Atlético Cup?As the Cup has always accustomed us. It is an important competition for all teams and we face it with the greatest enthusiasm like any competition we play. The Cultural is a very strong team at home, the best of the category in attack and we have to be attentive to your game. They are strong against the backlash and we will play with the illusion of moving forward.Do you like a single party more?We have to adapt to the decisions that are made. Thus it is much more entertaining and difficult for everyone, that we will have to demand in the house of the teams we face. There is no longer the comfort in quotes to be able to solve the game at home.What is the situation of Mono Burgos?They have known each other for 25 years, he is a friend, we have been together for 10 years and when he has to express what he is living and what will happen he will tell himself.He said that any team can beat them.If you analyze football in general, the last league cost us all. Granada played a great game against Barcelona, ​​suffering an expulsion, Madrid suffered to win Sevilla, Espanyol played a great game in Villarreal and won, Eibar against us … All teams are exposed to not high intensity to have the possibility with anyone. It happens to us and all the teams, where surely the second round is more demanding and there are more needs, it demands attention, concentration and what it takes to have regularity. Cavani’s relatives love him at Atlético.The only thing that worries me is the Copa del Rey match, we live from day to day and the results. Footballers who are not with us do not usually make appreciations about them.Are you ready to compete Vrsaljko?It is much better, it is growing, it will not participate tomorrow, but it is in a growth close to what we ask.Cavani wants to come to Atlético.Tomorrow is a very important game and from the coach’s side we want to worry about playing well or playing badly, but winning …Will you bet on Adam in the Cup?In every competition we play we bet on those who believe that we can get the most out of the game. Oblak has a blow from the Spanish Super Cup that is dragging and this time he will not travel and will have the opportunity Adam.What does João Félix play is a prize or a punishment?I did not expect that, to play a game can be a punishment. Playing any game with Atlético is an illusion and we have minutes to hopefully develop it in the best possible way.There is no VAR, do you prefer it?No, give me the VAR, which makes us see clearly where the errors are and then tell us what they want to tell us, but the errors are seen. There when they do not see each other and everything is in the air for or against … I prefer that the error of the VAR is still committed, but surely it is an improvement to have more justice, before there was not much justice. Simeone appeared at a press conference to discuss the news of Atlético de Madrid, focused on the Copa match against Cultural, of the round of 16.last_img read more

21st Century Cracks: Sainz, the pearl that Athletic let go

first_imgDo not feel valued and take action Mikel González, director of Alavés grassroots football and Sergio Fernández’s trusted man, the sports director of the club who has had such a good eye in recent years with the signings. Alavés signed him for his Juvenil B in the summer of 2017 and in just two years at the club his progression was meteoric: on August 25, against Espanyol, he debuted with the first team at just 18 years old, being the first born in the XXI century to do so. He is a fast end, skilled and with very good handling of both legs.The Alavés, aware of his talent and that several teams are behind him, renewed him until 2023 to make him feel in Vitoria everything he was valued that they did not make him feel in Bilbao. The idea is that the next course will have a file with the first team, after this campaign has already played 12 games in First despite alternating with the subsidiary.In addition to his footballing qualities, he has the privilege of being very well advised. His father Iñaki Sainz, alias ‘Navarro’, played in Segunda with Eibar between 1991 and 1994, while his uncle Carlos García spent eleven seasons in Athletic. His family continues to live in Bilbao, but he packed his bags to settle in the Alavés residence in Armentia. In Athletic they can repent for a long time … Borja Sainz (Leioa, 2001) is one of those cases in which Athletic can repent for years. With the limitation to hire players who have, the case of Borja strange: after training him in Lezama they let him escape and he signed for Alavés. The reason was that he did not feel valued.Let’s start at the beginning. Borja starts playing with only four years old in Lagun-Artea, Leioa’s team. Soon it begins to stand out and does not go unnoticed by Athletic, who tries not to miss any young promise from the Basque Country. He enters the red and white youth academy in the Alevín category, where he plays until the end of his Cadet stage. That is when Sainz does not feel important. He never finished being the undisputed starter in Cadet A and the proposal they put on the table does not appeal to him: a seven year contract (three for Youth, two at Basconia and two more at Bilbao Athletic). An extension that “ties” the club, although with a trick: Athletic could break it at the end of any of the seasons.last_img read more

Zanzibar diminish Rwanda semis hopes

Rwanda had come close in the 25th minute when Innocent Nhsuti connected Hakizimana’s freekick at the edge of the box but it hit the upright, though the ref whistled for offside.Three minutes before his goal, Yahya had tried his luck from distance after wriggling past his marker and finding shooting space but the effort was way over.A minute to the break, Hakizimana who was trusted with set pieces had one from a decent scoring range, but he sent it straight to the keeper.Hey made changes right at the start of the second half, Mico Justine and Birahimire Abeddy coming in for Sekamana Maxime and Mbogo Ali.Rwanda’s Abeddy Birahimire (R) attempts to go past Zanzibar’s Ibrahim Mohammed Said during their CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on December 5, 2017.

Revenue from beneficiation

(Image: Janine Erasmus) MEDIA CONTACTS • Brand South Africa   +27 11 483 0122 RELATED ARTICLES • Brics summit in the spotlight • South Africa at 2011 BRICS summit • Zuma: shared prosperity for all • Brics journos get to know SA Janine ErasmusBeneficiation was not an obstacle in Africa, but rather an opportunity, Bridgette Radebe, chair of the South African Mining Development Association, told delegates at the fifth BRICS summit at Durban’s International Convention Centre on Tuesday.Radebe said Africa was missing an opportunity when it exported minerals to other countries without first creating a finished product. “South Africa is a mining leader in terms of the life of mines as well as production ­ but we are missing an opportunity to add value to our operations.”Top-level delegations from all five BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) are in Durban for the summit to talk about co-operation, development and economic growth. South Africa has been a BRICS member since 2010. World’s richestSouth Africa holds an estimated US$2.5-trillion (R23-trillion) of mineral resources, making it the world’s richest country in this regard, according to a 2010 report commissioned by US banking group Citigroup.The country also has the world’s largest reported reserves of gold, platinum group metals, chrome ore and manganese ore, and the second-largest reserves of zirconium, vanadium and titanium.Despite these assets, South Africa – along with other African countries – lags in mineral beneficiation, exporting its minerals as unprocessed ore rather than higher-value finished products.“Many countries that are resource-rich seek to improve their revenue through taxation. They should consider that beneficiation may be a more effective option,” said Abiel Mngomezulu, the chief executive and president of Johannesburg-based mineral processing company Mintek, and moderator of the panel discussion on beneficiation.According to Deloitte, the gross revenue from sales of all minerals in South Africa for the 2010 financial year amounted to $24.5-billion (R227-billion). But only $9-billion (R86-billion) was generated from processing base metals, precious metals and other minerals. Job creationSouth Africa’s government has named beneficiation as a priority for job creation and economic growth. In 2011 it released a strategy that identified policies, legislation and incentives that could be put in place to grow the industry and give the country a greater competitive edge. Beneficiation is one of six focus areas in the New Growth Path, which aims to create five-million new jobs by 2020.Beneficiation lends itself to helping countries move ahead through job creation, technology advancement, skills transfer, and research and development, Sipho Nkosi, the chief executive of JSE-listed mining group Exxaro, said.“Under colonialism or imperialism, BRICS nations were not viewed as countries that should industrialise – instead the powers took what commodities they could and shipped them home. Now the world realises that we have to develop our own industries.”To successfully meet the challenge of building a beneficiation industry, he said South Africa needed to invest in resources – capital, power, infrastructure, skills and education. South-South co-operationCo-operation between BRICS countries could help this along. “Investment in Africa is one of our top priorities, and South-South co-operation will improve the African economy,” said Jiang Huicheng, the president of China’s First Investment Holding Group.Jiang said investment in mining would have the added effect of boosting crucial infrastructure such as rail networks. “We strongly support local industry,” he said.Jiang dismissed rumours that China planned to strip Africa of its mineral resources. “Our long-term target is to help African countries and also give small and medium enterprises a hand, and we are committed to this. We have been investing in Africa for over a decade.”China’s African investment was around $15-billion (R139-billion) in 2011, he said. In 2010, the country had more than 10 projects with an investment of more than $100-million (R926-million).Jiang cautioned that the environment for this kind of investment in Africa was not yet optimal. “Governments must show support for the mineral industry to attract more foreign investment.” Available incentivesThe South African government has singled out 10 minerals which it believes have the greatest potential for value through beneficiation: chromium, manganese, coal and uranium, nickel, diamonds, platinum, gold, titanium, iron ore and vanadium.There are five value chains associated with these commodities, namely:•          Energy commodities (coal, uranium and thorium)•          Iron and steel (iron ore, chromium and manganese)•          Pigment and titanium production (titanium and vanadium)•          Autocatalytic converters and diesel particulate filters (platinum)•          Jewellery fabrication (diamonds, gold and platinum)Radebe said there are tremendous opportunities in hydrogen fuel cell production.“This is part of the green revolution, and the future of energy supply,” she said. “The energy production process is silent, combustion-free and better for the environment. There are implications for residential, automotive and other sectors, and we expect that by 2015 the technology will be commercialised.”Radebe, who is founder of Mmakau Mining, said there were a range of government-driven incentives available to beneficiation companies and to both greenfield and brownfield initiatives. Incentives and benefits included tax reductions, the development of transport corridors and special economic zones, as well as training allowances.The Department of Science and Technology also offered incentives for research and development, she said. Mining’s superpowerOther countries are quick to tap into South African mining expertise.“Many of our recent improvements have been led by people with a South African background,” said German Pikhoya, the chief executive of Russia’s Polyus, one of the world’s biggest gold producers with the third-biggest reserves on earth.The company’s chief operating officer is James Nieuwenhuys, who learned his trade at the Gencor Pomfret Mine and then De Beers, where he was project engineer for the development of the Venetia open-pit diamond mine in Limpopo.“His input helped us to increase our gold output,” said Pikhoya, “and it has been so positive that we will probably internationalise our team even more.”Polyus is also co-operating with Mintek, he said. “We view South Africa as a mining superpower.”last_img read more
