An unpublished Futre documentary recorded 16 years ago sees the light

first_imgMourinho, in the documentary about Futre. A documentary in which Queen’s own music serves as a common thread, since the birth of Paulo Jorge Dos Santos Futre in Montijo, Portugal, on February 28, 1966. With images of everything and the story of those who knew him, helped, accompanied, were his rivals. Since Aurelio Pereira, its discoverer, also from Cristiano Ronaldo years later, Figo and Mourinho going by Luis Aragonés, Cruyff and a Raúl who recognizes that Futre was his “idol”. King Don Juan Carlos handing the Cup to Futre. “I always tried to find him for the teams I was on, a different, atypical footballer, “says Johan Cruyff in the documentary. “The arrival of Futre at Porto marks the future of Porto and Portuguese soccer,” says a young Mourinho who later also stressed that “it is not easy for an Atlético player to be loved throughout Spain.” “Paulo Futre was a threat to Madrid”, argues Michael Robinson. “One of the best wingers in the world, with Gento “, in Luis’s word. “A reference and a legend”, word of Torres. And from that step that has moved, that left the riverbank in the direction of Canillejas, but it took his name in the suitcase. Pau-lo, pau-lo, fu-tre, fu-tre, as high as that January 19, 1997. “One of the best memories of my childhood. This is how my father’s documentary beginsWith these words, Paulo Futre’s oldest son, Paulo Jr., raised the curtain on his Instagram account (@futremendo) a jewel that will excite all athletes: a documentary about the figure of his father, which reviews his entire career, recorded in 2004 but which did not see the light at the time. “Just today in quarantine I convinced him,” continues Paulo, “to publish it so that people can entertain themselves a little,” he adds. The link, in his biography of his Instagram profile, takes the fourteen minute long documentary which is a journey into the past. To the football of before, the Calderón of the cement-filled seats, the south bottom rises and falls, that scream, paulo-paulo-fu-tre-fu-tre, Exciting, a lot. It all begins with that moment, which is one of the best memories of his childhood. January 19, 1997, the delivery of the Atlético gold and diamond badge to his father by “his godfather”, Don Jesús Gil. From a plater in a car workshop to an idol in the worldEveryone agrees on something: that lanky, long-haired, irrepressible boy was the one who opened the doors abroad to everyone else in Portuguese football, the one who took two and a half hours to move from Montijo to Lisbon, to train in Sporting, and he had bad grades, which is why his father introduced him to the job market: plater, in a car shop, his 13-year-old black and white photos, with his face full of grease, with the monkey wrench, at the bottom of a car they testify. But Paulo loved soccer, the ball. Rui Costa tells it. Aurelio Pereira says so. Arthur Costa. It is in all the videos, Futre glued to the lime, lightning, undetectable, removing rivals from above as if they were fluff on the shoulders. His move to Porto, the Champions League final against Bayern, the signing by Atlético, his last name in the stands, increasingly roaring, that goal to Buyo in the Copa del Rey. Raúl, in the documentary about Futre.last_img read more

Warriors contributed to U-19s success, says Khan

first_imgGEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC): A leading Guyana Amazon Warriors official believes the franchise contributed to the success of the country’s Under-19 team’s recent success in the West Indies Cricket Board tournament staged in Jamaica. Omar Khan, the team operations manager, said four members of the title-winning squad had been a part of the Amazon Warriors set up during the recent Caribbean Premier League, and had benefited from important training and other vital career-enhancing information. “It is indeed very heartening to us in the Guyana Amazon Warriors team to follow the success and development of the Under-19 players who were part of the Guyana Amazon Warriors squad for the CPL 2015,” the Guyana Times quoted Khan as saying. “It must be noted that Shimron Hetmyer was selected as a full member of the Guyana Amazon Warriors team for the CPL and Keemo Paul, Sherfane Rutherford and Akshaya Persaud were all part of the training camp held prior to the CPL. The Under-19 players were given every opportunity to participate in all the activities of the Guyana Amazon Warriors camp and coach Carl Hooper himself spent a lot of time advising the Under-19 players on their respective game development,” Khan said. In last Sunday’s final, they beat Jamaica by four wickets to crown themselves champions for the second straight year.last_img read more

first_imgResidents of Vreed-en-Hoop, West Coast Demerara (Region 3) are calling on the relevant authorities to implement a proper garbage disposal facility, as the community has been subjected to improper garbage disposal for a number of years.They blame this untenable situation on vendors who dispose of their refuse in an unacceptable manner.During the day, the area becomes crowded with small businesses and vendors,A section of the garbage at the ferry stellingwhom the residents believe are the architects of this garbage problem. The situation wherein commuters access speedboat taxis at the ferry stelling to cross the Demerara River is also being blamed for the garbage situation.Persons residing in the area have expressed concern at the amount of waste being dumped in the area by both visitors and those who use the stelling for their livelihood. They related that at the end of the day, when all have gone to their respective communities, the residents are the ones who remain in the garbage-filled environment and trenches. It is due to this that they experience flooding during the rainy season, as the drainage system becomes clogged, making it difficult for water to escape. As such, people find it difficult to get to work and school when it floods.“I ain’t know what to say about this garbage problem! (It is) very, very disturbing, because we are the persons living in it. They go away, but we have to see it all the time, not only on the road corner, but in the trench,” said a resident who has requested anonymity.Another resident of the area has pointed out that vendors are not the only ones littering the environment, those who live in the area are doing likewise. Instead of paying for garbage disposal, they dispose of all the household waste in the trenches. Plastic materials, Styrofoam containers and animal carcasses are dumped in the drains and remain lodged, creating an awful smell.She stated, “They don’t want to pay for the garbage truck to pick up their garbage, most of them; so they throwing it in the trench, and it blocking up. Most days when the rain fall, my yard does be (flooded).”Vreed-en-Hoop residents are calling on the authorities in charge to take action against persons who dispose of garbage in an unsightly manner, jeopardizing their health and well-being. Persons residing in the area have demanded that the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) address this matter at the earliest.last_img read more

Bale has to be the player we know he is – Zidane

first_img0Shares0000Gareth Bale impressed in Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Celta Vigo last weekend. © AFP/File / MIGUEL RIOPAMADRID, Spain, Aug 23 – Zinedine Zidane has challenged Gareth Bale to show why he is still one of the world’s best players as he continues his reintegration at Real Madrid.Bale, 30, was a surprise inclusion in the starting line-up against Celta Vigo last weekend, when Madrid opened with an impressive 3-1 win in La Liga and Bale was arguably man of the match. Zidane said in July it would be “best for everyone” if Bale left Madrid this summer but the Welshman has been eager to stay and appears to be regaining the confidence of his coach.“What has changed is that the player is going to stay, nothing more,” Zidane said in a press conference on Friday, ahead of Saturday’s game at home to Real Valladolid.“The important thing is the player wants to stay. It’s true that a lot was said about him, by me as well, but he is going to stay.“He is a great player, he has shown that before and he has to show it again. He has to be the player we know that he is.”Bale’s start in Vigo came after Eden Hazard sustained a thigh injury in training and it remains to be seen if he can keep his place when the Belgian returns after the international break.“Bale played well the other day, a great match overall but also his level defensively was very high,” said Zidane.“He worked hard and we have to continue in this way, Gareth, everyone, they are all going to be important.”– ‘Can’t wait for September 2’ –The transfer window in Spain does not close until September 2 and Zidane was asked about the future of goalkeeper Keylor Navas, as well as Real Madrid’s pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar.Barcelona and Madrid are both chasing Neymar but neither have agreed a deal with PSG, who reportedly set Barca a deadline of Friday to present a suitable offer.“The players I have are the ones that are here. Everything else, anything can happen until September 2. Some can arrive, some can go,” Zidane said.“For that reason I can’t wait for September 2 so you won’t ask me about this anymore.”Navas has lost out to Thibaut Courtois in the battle for the number one goalkeeper spot and the Costa Rican is believed to be seeking a move before the window closes.“He has not told me he wants to leave,” Zidane said. “I am not contemplating him leaving, not at all. “He is here, he wants to be here and he is working in that way. He has always been professional.”0Shares0000(Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
