Wolves announce new Nuno Espirito Santo contract

first_img Loading… FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Wolverhampton Wanderers announced a new long-term contract for Nuno Espirito Santo, the bearded maestro who led the club into the Premier League and deep into the Europa League. Only Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, and Chris Wilder have been with their Premier League clubs longer than Espirito Santo.

It’s a commitment that you make yourself, to each day have a chance to help to do something good. How far? Tomorrow is how far we want to reach, to be better than yesterday and the next day, and the next day. We’ll see, but in terms of how we want to do things, we want to play better, how we can do things, working very hard like we do. Dedicate every moment to give the best of each one of us every moment.” How far can Wolves go with Espirito Santo? They’ve so far managed to keep hold of Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez amongst a bevy of top players. The 46-year-old ex-Porto boss was the steady hand required when Wolves launched themselves several steps ahead of plan in qualifying for the UEL last season. There wasn’t an ounce panic with a slow start to the PL season and Espirito Santo massaged his squad through the congested season and nearly back to the UEL. The new deal runs through the 2022-23 season and will ward off suitors or at least insure the club against those hoping to poach Espirito Santo and bring him to their club.Advertisement Promoted ContentThailand’s 10 Most Iconic LandmarksWhat Happens To Your Brain When You Play Too Much Video Games?10 Phones That Can Work For Weeks Without Recharging9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBrother Creates A Phenomenal Dress For His SisterThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Castillejo: “In San Siro you feel football: I want to stay here”

first_imgSamu Castillejo (Málaga, January 18, 1995) tells AS these weeks of quarantine and his desire to return to the green. The former Villarreal is already an untouchable in Milan: in 2020, according to ‘WhoScored’, he is the player with the most key passes (31) in the top leagues in Europe.– Samu, how is the quarantine living?– Well, doing what you can at home. We alternate one day of training by video call to another with the aerobic work they send us.– How are you physically?– Right now much more tired when I do aerobic or strength work. It shows that you have not seen a field for many days. If the championship resumes, we will need a little time to get ready.– The COVID-19 touched him closely with the infections of Paolo and Daniel Maldini.– Yes, I discussed it with Dani. Paolo was worse, but they managed the disease well and luckily they are already cured. When the virus approaches you like this, you are truly afraid.– They are weeks of solidarity gestures: the news of the 3,000 masks that he donated to the Civil Guard, the National Police and the Quirón hospital in Malaga came out.– It is a detail for my people, for Malaga. Since the pandemic started I have been thinking about how to help. I heard that masks were missing there and I wanted to contribute my grain of sand.– After a year and a half with little space, before the break he had been untouchable for Pioli for months.– Those who know me know how hard I am, beyond the appearance I can give for my hair or my tattoos, I am a very humble boy. The first year was adaptive, it is difficult to show what one has playing 15 minutes and a starting game every two or three weeks. Change is always born when they put you to play, beyond the systems. If there is confidence and they make you feel important, you enter a good climate with yourself.– There were many rumors about a goodbye to Milan …– But I always wanted to succeed here, I want to stay in this club for a long time. The truth is that 2020 had started well: I have played every game and at a good level. I hope it continues like this.– In this winter they lived the arrival of Ibrahimovic. – It was great. He is a very humble guy …– Zlatan is humble?– Yes, yes (laughs). Let’s see, he is a boy who gets along with all his classmates, outside the field he is very joker and nice. During games he knows how to give advice, you can tell he came to help us: sharing the dressing room and the field with him makes you learn a lot.– Was expected the great impact that Theo had in Serie A?– In Spain he had shown his potential at Alavés, then with his age, gaining space at Madrid is not easy. Every player needs confidence and space. So now Theo is showing all his talent, which is a lot.– In January he had to separate from Pepe Reina. I imagine that in the locker room you are missing …– He has behaved like an older brother to me. He is a guy with whom you laugh 24 hours, everything he can say is little for the person he is. Any team in this world needs one like it. He is an exceptional goalkeeper: I have seen him work alongside another great goalkeeper like Donnarumma, and in his role he is undoubtedly one of the best in the world. Interpret the game like no other.– What has been the greatest difficulty in adapting to Calcium?– It is true that in LaLiga everything is much more technical, it is played more, while here the teams defend better, they work more on the tactics. It is not a topic.– And the most beautiful moment since your arrival in Milan?– My debut. I will never forget the emotion of the first minutes in San Siro. That stadium makes you see what football is, you feel its history. I wish any footballer ever experience it. For me it is fortunate to enjoy it and I hope to continue doing so.– What do you miss most about Spain?– Well, obviously you miss the family, speaking your language … Your land is your land, but here I feel very comfortable, as one more. I learned the language pretty quickly and people treat me very lovingly.– How eager do you have to compete again?– Soccer is my passion, it is what I like to do: I miss it and I want to start. I hope that the situation improves, which is the most important thing right now, and that there are conditions to play again.last_img read more

Afraid of These Two Things? Oh, Please.

first_imgHere are two things you don’t have to worry about. I keep hollering about the need to save and about the virtues of market tracking index funds. And those articles inevitably generate a slew of bizarre emails. My correspondents’ claim: If we all saved diligently and we all indexed, the American economy would collapse and the stock market would grind to a halt. There are all kinds of things that keep me up at night. I try to remember if I unplugged the iron. I fret about next week’s column. I wonder whether the New York Knicks have any hope of making the playoffs. But I’ve got to tell you: I sure don’t worry about a national outbreak of financial prudence. Limitless Desires Most Americans are hopelessly ill prepared for retirement. For instance, according to AARP’s analysis of the Federal Reserve’s 2001 Survey of Consumer Finances, the typical babyboomer household has total financial assets of just $50,700. If these folks are lucky, they will receive a traditional company pension, thus compensating for their puny nest eggs. If they aren’t so lucky, all they will have is Social Security and the prospect of a retirement spent pinching pennies. The solution, of course, is to save diligently, and I make that suggestion with monotonous regularity. This isn’t exactly a courageous position. Advocating saving money strikes me as a kin to defending brushing your teeth and regular showering. What’s not to like? Yet some of my correspondents argue that promoting thrift is dangerous stuff. I apparently run the risk of single handedly shoving the U.S. economy into a downward spiral of excessive saving and too little spending. One reader even suggested that my articles touting the virtues of saving were “subversive.” I have always thought of myself as a grumpy, uptight, nerdy personalfinance writer. Subversive? I like the sound of that. Unfortunately, however, it isn’t true. Back in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, Americans regularly saved between 8% and 10% of their disposable income each year and the economy continued to grow. Since then, we have turned into the world’s most profligate citizens. But other nations still save a decent amount each year, and their economies are chugging along just fine. To be sure, a high savings rate, like high taxes, drains money out of the economy. But that shouldn’t cause too much harm, just so long as we have offsetting investment and government spending, which put money back into the economy. Still, let’s suppose a big increase in the savings rate is indeed an economic danger. Should you spend like crazy, in a patriotic attempt to keep the economy afloat, even as you sacrifice all chance of a comfortable retirement? I don’t think so. My suggestion: We’ll let everybody else rack up the credit card charges and keep the U.S. economy firing on all cylinders. Meanwhile, you and I will quietly save for retirement. It will be our little secret. Endless Optimism When readers aren’t worrying that I will precipitate the collapse of the U.S. economy, they’re fretting that I will cause the shuttering of the New York Stock Exchange. What would happen, they ask, if everybody indexed? Frankly, we are so far from that point that it is hardly worth considering. Despite all the discussion of indexing, it’s still not terribly popular. Just 14% of stockfund assets are in U.S. and international index funds. Indexing is somewhat more common among big institutional investors, like endowments and pension plans. They have around 30% of their stock market money indexed. Overall, maybe 20% of the U.S. stock market is indexed, figures John Bogle, founder of Vanguard Group in Malvern, Pa.,and the fund industry’s most vocal advocate of indexing. Yet, even though we have 20% of shares that are rarely traded, the New York Stock Exchange has had around 100% turnover in recent years, implying a typical stockmarket holding period of just 12 months. As Mr. Bogle sees it, that is more than enough trading to ensure market efficiency. In the 1950s and 1960s, “the market went on perfectly satisfactorily with 15% or 20% turnover,” he notes. Thanks to today’s whirlwind of trading, we have a wonderfully efficient market. Not only do active investors keep stocks fairly priced by bidding up undervalued shares and selling pricey stocks, but also they provide liquidity. This means that whenever we indexers want to buy or sell, there’s never any problem finding somebody to take the other side of our trades. But here’s the astonishing part: In return for providing such a valuable service, active investors receive precious little reward. Most end up lagging behind the market, as their results are dragged down by all the investment costs they incur. Indeed, I like to think of active investors as capitalism’s philanthropists. They sacrifice their financial health for the benefit of the marketplace and those of us who index mooch off their good work. What if active investors wised up and indexing became wildly popular? Suppose we gotto the point where there was so little trading that the market became inefficient. In that scenario, indexing might look even more attractive. True, in an inefficient market, we would be likely to see a wider range of returns among active investors, as some folks handily beat the market while others lagged behind. That might seem appealing to active investors, and it would no doubt encourage more investors to try to beat the market. But there is a downside. Because the market would now be less liquid, trading spreads the difference between the buying and selling price on stocks would widen out, so it would cost even more to trade. That increased cost would hurt the returns of active investors, further bolstering the case for indexing. Don’t, however, count on any of this happening. As the sharp rise in trading over the past three decades has made abundantly clear, there are stil plenty of folks who are willing to try their hand at outperforming the market averages. “Hope springs eternal,” Mr. Bogle says. “Self confidence springs eternal. We all like to think we’re above average. Reports of the triumph of indexing are greatly exaggerated.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
