a month agoMan Utd midfielder Juan Mata: Great players not always great coaches

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Man Utd midfielder Juan Mata: Great players not always great coachesby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United midfielder Juan Mata says being a great player doesn’t mean he’ll be a great manager.He writes in his new book, “Juan Mata: Suddenly A Footballer”:“There are many cases where an ex-player becomes a manager with time. It normally starts by coaching youngsters in academies, then through reserve teams or smaller clubs in lower leagues, to gain some experience of managing groups and leadership.“Pep Guardiola, Luis Enrique, Ronald Koeman, Zinedine Zidane, Julen Lopetegui, Ernesto Valverde, Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte and Ole are just some examples of that process. But having been a fantastic player does not make you a great coach. Not at all.“Experience definitely adds something really important, but seen from my point of view, becoming a manager has more to do with your understanding of the game, your personality, your ability to communicate, convince and motivate, and your work ethic, than your experience as a football player. You need to be a leader.” last_img read more

Alaska winter tourism gains popularity

first_imgANCHORAGE, Alaska — Winter tourism is growing in Alaska, a state known as a popular summer destination.Visitor volume grew 33 per cent for the fall and winter season over the past decade, the Anchorage Daily News reported .Winter business also has been up for the Alaska Railroad for the past few years, including a rise in visitors from Asia coming to see Alaska’s night sky. Ridership on winter passenger trains grew 33 per cent between the winter of 2015-2016 and the following year, according to railroad spokeswoman Meghan Clemons.The railroad has added more train service to accommodate the larger numbers.The railroad’s vice-president of marketing, Dale Wade, said visitors from Asia are one factor for the upswing. Seeing the aurora borealis is a popular goal for many of them.“Winter is suddenly very popular, and it’s growing steadily for the last three years,” said Wade. There wasn’t a “significant market for it” before that, he said.Winter passenger train service between Anchorage and Fairbanks typically operated only on weekends for years. Midweek winter runs between the two cities were added in 2014, with more added since then, Clemons said.The Chinese market has “exploded” over the past several fall and winter seasons, according to a report by the McDowell Group, an Anchorage research company.Alaska Skylar Travel focuses on bringing Chinese tourists to the state. The Anchorage company, whose roots are in Beijing, targets the Mandarin-speaking market.The business had about 350 clients in its first winter, according to operations manager Glen Hemingson. In its fourth winter last season, that number had grown to about 5,000 clients.“Increasingly we see visitors from more Southeast Asian countries, including the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore,” Hemingson said.Wade, with the railroad, said Alaska as a visitor destination for the Asian market doesn’t seem to have been harmed by a recent tariff war that strained trade relations between the U.S. and China.“I think Alaska is a favoured location for Asian visitors, despite the conflicts that seem to be arising politically between U.S. and China relations,” he said. “We’re enjoying the sweet spot in between that.”The Associated Presslast_img read more

Delhis Iyer Rabada hand RCB their sixth loss in IPL

first_imgBengaluru: There was no end to Royal Challengers Bangalore’s woeful run this IPL as the Virat Kohli-led side suffered its sixth straight defeat while Delhi Capitals played like a unit to win by four wickets, here Sunday. RCB batsmen found the going tough on a tough wicket after being invited to bat first and could only manage 149 for 8 in the stipulated 20 overs. With the ball not coming on to the bat, Kohli scored almost a-run-a-ball before hitting two sixes late in his innings, consuming 33 balls for his 41. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhHad it not been for Kohli and Moeen Ali’s contributions, RCB would have been in deep trouble. Ali hit a 18-ball 32. South Africa paceman Kagiso Rabada (4/21) accounted for four RCB batsmen to lead Delhi’s bowling attack, which also comprised Chris Morris (2/28), Axar Patel (1/22) and Sandeep Lamichhane (1/46). Shreyas Iyer then played a captain’s knock, making a 50-ball 67 to guide Delhi Capitals to a comfortable win, bringing their IPL campaign back on track. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterIyer anchored the chase with some crucial partnerships as Delhi overhauled the target with 10 balls to spare. Iyer smashed eight fours and two sixes in his 50-ball innings which helped Delhi grab the fifth place in the points table, snapping a two-match losing streak where they lost to Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last two games. Chasing 150 to win, Iyer forged a 68-run partnership with opener Prithvi Shaw (28) after Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed by Tim Southee in the third ball of the innings. In the 9th over, Pawan Negi removed Shaw after the batsman top-edged a delivery and was caught at deep square leg by Akshdeep Nath. Iyer then shared 39 runs with Colin Ingram (22), who blasted two fours and a six in his 21-ball stay before being trapped by Moeen Ali in the 14th over while trying to play a shot over the leg side. Rishabh Pant came out with intent, blasting a couple of fours, while Iyer too smashed a six off Yuzvendra Chahal in the 17th over but the skipper miscued a pull off Navdeep Saini and was caught at short cover by Chahal. With just five runs needed, Delhi survived some anxious moment after losing Chris Morris (0) and Pant — both trying to clear the in-field and perishing in the process. Axar Patel then smashed a four to take Delhi home. Earlier, Kohli played an uncharacteristic sedate knock. Ishant Sharma was economical upfront, while Chris Morris was a bit expensive though he sent back Parthiv Patel (9), who slogged hard at a widish delivery and found Sandeep Lamichhane on the boundary ropes. Young Rabada was introduced to bowl the last over in Powerpay and he got his national teammate AB de Villiers (17). Kohli was still there but the runs came only in one and twos. In nine overs, RCB scored just 53. Marcus Stoinis hit only second six of the innings by lofting one from Lamichhane over long-on. Stoinis went after Axar Patel too but ended up giving a catch to Rahul Tewatiya. England all-rounder Ali came to the crease and suddenly batting looked easy. He pulled and drove with ease. Ali spoilt Ishant’s figures, hitting him for a six and a four and also dispatched one from Lamichhane to long-off.last_img read more
