Rondon: I was ahead of Ighalo on Man Utd target list

Posted on by

first_img Rondon, who has scored five goals in 11 games in the Chinese Super League, said via the Mirror: “The chance was very close to come back to England. “The owner of my club said that they paid a lot for me, he wanted me to stay and didn’t want to let me go. He said: ‘It’s not in our minds to let you go.’ “I talked to Rafa and then they chose another player, it finished and I didn’t have any chance to go. “I stayed and I take that experience with me in my life, in my career and I have to wait because I’ve signed for two years and if I stay for two years it doesn’t matter for me. “My agents didn’t say too much. They said they’d call me if they had some news but the opportunity to go was really, really close and the decisions are with the owners. “It was a good opportunity for me to come back to Europe but I stayed in China and then we will see what happens in the future. “I enjoyed England a lot, I followed the Premier League a lot, my children now speak better English than me! “It’s a very good thing for me and it was a big opportunity for me and my family.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The 30-year-old former Newcastle striker was rumoured to be one of a number of targets in January, but now the Venezuelan has revealed how close he came to joining Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford. The Norwegian boss was desperately hunting for a forward in January with Marcus Rashford injured. Bournemouth frontman Josh King was an option for United, while Rondon says his club and boss Rafa Benitez were also contacted about a move for the forward. However, Dalian Professional blocked the move, as they did not want to lose Rondon after paying £16.5million for him last summer on a £8million-a-year contract. Instead, United looked elsewhere in the Chinese Super League and ended up signing Odion Ighalo from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua on loan, with Rondon suggesting he was ahead of Igalo on Solskjaer’s list. read also:Rondon opens up on how he reacted to Man Utd signing Ighalo instead of himAdvertisement Loading… Salomon Rondon has revealed his club Dalian Professional blocked a move to Manchester United in January.

Posted on by

first_imgWith the Overwatch League set to begin very shortly after what feels like an age, Intel and HP have been revealed as the first sponsors of Blizzard’s new league. It was also announced that Intel will sponsor future Overwatch competitive events as well as the OWL. Image courtesy of BlizzardThe release outlines that all players will be using a combination of Intel & HP gear when competing at the LA Arena for the upcoming season. The PCs will be powered by Intel’s i7 Processors and the gaming PC and displays will be provided by OMEN by HP. Pete Vlastelica, President & CEO of MLG stated: “We’re thrilled to be joining forces with HP and Intel to ensure that the teams competing professionally in Overwatch are equipped with top-end technology. Multiyear collaborations such as this illustrate the momentum behind the Overwatch League as well as a long-term commitment by us and our partners in what we see as the future of esports.”“Working with Blizzard Entertainment as a global technology partner of the Overwatch League is the perfect way to celebrate esports talent and showcase our hardware within the competitive gaming arena,” said Alex Craddock, Global Head of Marketing, Personal Systems at HP Inc. “OMEN hardware has been widely adopted by many of the world’s top esports professionals, and we’re thrilled to help power the gameplay for the Overwatch League.”Finally, John Bonini, VP and general manager of the VR, gaming, and esports group, Intel commented: “For more than 12 years Intel has consistently supported the esports community and we’re always looking for ways to help improve how they play, watch, and compete.

The Overwatch League will be a great showcase for esports, and we’re excited to be a part of it with Blizzard.”Esports Insider says: Definitely a positive step, but with the league underway in a matter of months and huge investment into franchises, it’s been a slow start on partner reveals. We’re sure there’s more in the pipeline, but the clock’s ticking.last_img read more

Fair Haven in No Rush to Crush Brush Processing

Posted on by

first_imgSpitz called the processing center a “missed opportunity,” and a prime location for a dog park, or a community garden. “It is not an appropriate location any longer,” Spitz said. “The neighborhood has changed. It’s not fair to our lives. It’s not fair to our health.” “I don’t see any way to relocate the facility in the borough, so the only other choice would be to close it down,” Mayor Ben Lucarelli said. “Then we’re left with handling the disposable brush in a proper and environmentally conscious way.” Since it’s been a mutually beneficial partnership for both parties, Spitz wondered if the borough could pursue a similar interlocal agreement to take brush processing outside the municipal border. Lucarelli said closing the facility would probably mean adding two more employees to the Department of Public Works and purchasing a $400,000 rear loader vehicle, like a garbage truck. Additional transportation costs would also come into play. To avoid transport during peak school hours, early morning drop-off and afternoon pickup, the grinding can begin as early as 7 a.m. Fair Haven Police Chief Joseph McGovern told residents Monday the operation’s early start time is protected by ordinance. “You’re talking about adding millions of dollars to the budget in order to accomplish this,” Lucarelli said. In an interview, borough administrator Teresa Casagrande said the location of the site – between William Street and several baseball fields, basketball courts and a soccer pitch at Fair Haven Fields – is a pre-existing condition of the neighborhood that dates back to the 1950s. In return, maintenance of Fair Haven parks and municipal grounds, as well as street-sweeping and storm-water catch-basin cleaning falls under the purview of Rumson. Fair Haven and Rumson entered into a shared service agreement in April 2012, trading key maintenance services to collectively cut costs. Lucarelli said it’s something he has explored, but the borough’s Fair Haven Fields Natural Area Advisory Committee quickly squashed. Under the terms, Fair Haven handles the collection and processing of both boroughs’ brush, as well as offering engineering services from in-house professionals for small jobs. FAIR HAVEN – JenniferSpitz said the decorativemolding is rattling off thewalls of her home and anearby brush processingoperation is to blame. Resident Bob Donnelly questioned whether the site could be relocated deeper within the 73-acre Fair Haven Fields tract, possibly in the natural area. Spitz resides on William Street, in a neighborhood that backs up to a wooded area of Fair Haven Fields. At Monday’s borough council meeting she played a 45-second video filmed from the deck in her backyard. Sptiz said twice a year, for days and sometimes two to three weeks at a time, her home shakes, the backyard is unusable and her kids are unable to ride their bikes to school because of the operation. “We’ve worked to makethis as efficient a processas we can. We’ve gottenthe collection down to sixmonths out of the year,when it used to be nine.And now we only processtwice a year and try to havethe operation completed inless than a week, weatherpending,” Casagrande said,noting the job is completedbefore Fair Haven Day andin the late fall. The process includes 18-wheeler trucks transporting brush collected from Fair Haven and Rumson to the facility before it’s loaded into an industrial grinder. “They are quite defensive of that area and want to keep it natural. So I don’t see Fair Haven Fields as a viable option. Hypothetically, if we got approval of that committee, then we’d have to get approval from the county, followed by the state. And from what I understand that’s exceedingly difficult,” Lucarelli said. Casagrande told residents a cooperative county facility for peninsula towns at Fort Monmouth was another option investigated by the mayor, but “Fort Monmouth turned it down.” “I can’t accept ‘no’ any longer,” Sptiz said in a post-meeting interview. “I’m asking (the council) to represent us and find a better way to do this, whether that’s a partnership with another town or with the county. I’d like their help in figuring that out. I know they’re volunteers, which is why I’m willing to volunteer and do the legwork. I just need some direction. I’m pleading with them to help.” It wasn’t the woodland setting that was the focal point, but rather the video’s soundtrack, a constant chorus of industrial buzzing and grinding coming from beyond the trees at the borough’s designated processing site. The next Fair HavenFields Advisory CommitteeMeeting is scheduled forJuly 17.last_img read more

View comments MOST READ Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Read Next Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Fernandez said San Beda will file an appeal to downgrade Bolick’s disqualifying foul in time for its game against Mapua on Friday.“We’ll appeal that for sure, but how can we appeal if there’s no report? We want to know what happened, why they called it for Robert? Why? They have to justify it,” he said.Fernandez then turned his ire towards commissioner Bai Cristobal, noting that the official could have handled the matter better knowing that decisions made from that situation gravely impact some of the players’ career in the long run.Bolick is in the running for the Most Valuable Player plum, with him currently sixth in the race with averages of 13.56 points, 7.56 rebounds, and 4.67 assists.He also posted a near triple-double performance in the game with 14 markers, 11 dimes, and seven boards, but him being sent to the showers in the game against St. Benilde already rules him out of any individual plum at the end of the season.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img Catriona Gray spends Thanksgiving by preparing meals for people with illnesses “Why would you throw him out?

I don’t want to speculate, but it’s a won game already, and then that incident happened and they penalized the other team that did not start it,” he said. “If they want us to lose ball games, then let us lose that ball game in a proper way. God, it’s so bad. It’s wrong. (We had) six fouls in fourth quarter and the other team only has one foul, and then that happens. They tackle a player? Should he be thrown out? Yes, it should be an [ejection]. But why penalize the other guy?” Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netSan Beda coach Boyet Fernandez leapt to Robert Bolick’s defense after he felt his star playmaker was unjustly ejected in his team’s 72-56 win over St. Benilde on Tuesday.“You have to see that.
