I was born in a village, I grew up there, and they don’t like football,” Mane told SuperSport.“My mum, my dad and my uncle preferred me to go to school all the time and study. At that time I was only focusing on being a football player.Senegal forward Sadio Mane takes part in a training session in Kaluga, Russia“They told me ‘How can you be a football player? It is not possible. This village is far from Dakar, how can you go? We don’t even have family there’.“But I knew I was going to be a football player, I just didn’t know how. It was the only thing I was doing, the only thing that I knew. Always training, training, training, training.“They never, ever tried to help me until the day I left my school, I was fifteen or sixteen. I said ‘Now is enough, I have to stop school – I want to be a football player, I have to focus’.“They said ‘Are you crazy, how?’. I said ‘I don’t know but I will go to Dakar, I don’t know anyone but I can play on the street and hopefully someone can find me.“I think they thought I was joking but one day I packed all of my luggage, stopped school and went.

They went to my friend and finally he told them that I went to Dakar.“They found me, they took me from Dakar and took me back home.”When asked where his passion for football came from, Mane added: “It is from when I was born.“When I was three or four only football was in my head. I went 10 years and nothing changed, only football, football, football.“The strange thing is, nobody played football in my family before.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool forward Sadio Mane struck twice in a 4-0 rout of West HamLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 30 – Liverpool forward Sadio Mane says he was forced to sneak away from home as a teenager to pursue his dream of becoming a footballer.The 26-year-old has enjoyed a swift rise in European football after joining French side Metz as a youngster from Senegalese football academy, Academie Generation Foot.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang accused the Gabon federation of “amateurism” © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYSLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 22 – Gabon and Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has slammed the country’s decision to name his father as national team coach without a deal being finalised.The Gabonese football federation (Fegafoot) announced on Wednesday that Pierre-Francois Aubameyang and Daniel Cousin, a former Gabon international, would be the new national coaching team. But former Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang said his father was currently in bad health and had no intention of taking the job.“You wonder why I have problems with you? Why I don’t want to be in the squad any longer?” Aubameyang said in an Instagram post late Friday.“The president of the federation called my dad but didn’t even bother to ask about his state of health. He’s sick at the moment.”“(It was done) so you could rush and hold a press conference while my father had (said) that he would give his reply the following day: a negative one,” Aubameyang added.“When the federation stops showing such amateurism, the national team will be able to move forward.”Fegafoot admitted the premature announcement was “a situation which could have been avoided”.It said Pierre-Francois, who is in London for health reasons, had indicated he would give his decision on Thursday but it blamed Gabon’s sports ministry for ordering the federation to make an announcement the previous day.It added, however, that Aubameyang senior “had on several occasions expressed his desire to train the national team”.Gabon’s Sports Minister Alain Claude Bilie-By-Nze defended his ministry’s actions, telling AFP that “being called up as a player or as a coach should lead to someone wrapping themselves in the flag”.“At such times, the issue of procedures becomes a luxury that can be dispensed with,” he added.Gabon’s previous coach, Spaniard Jose Antonio Camacho, was sacked in mid-September after Gabon lost 1-0 to Zambia in a friendly. In less than two years in the job, he won just two matches, losing seven and drawing eight.0Shares0000(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Said Loring: “We were always cool, but we weren’t tight.” Tarver, a 5-foot-8 freshman guard from Valencia, and Loring, a 6-1 junior forward, from Saugus by way of College of the Canyons, have grown tight since preseason workouts began last year. The Roadrunners, who have four first-year starters, have bonded during impromptu late-night shootarounds and three-on-three pickup games that often go well past midnight. “Whether we’re tired or sore, we’re going to the gym to work on our shooting over and over.” said Tarver, CSUB’s fourth-leading scorer (12.5 points per game) and No. 2 rebounder (5.1 per game). “We knew there would be some close games. but we have faith and confidence in each other.” Loring, who ranks third in scoring (13.0) and rebounding (4.9), agrees. “It is so weird to be part of a team that has meshed with all our personalities,” she said. “It’s one of the best experiences that I have had on a team. We don’t have any hate or dislike. When we have problems, we set them aside.” BAKERSFIELD – Kelley Tarver and Jessie Loring weren’t exactly the best of friends when they played girls’ basketball at Foothill League rivals Valencia and Saugus highs, but it hasn’t taken long for them to bond in their first season as teammates at Cal State Bakersfield. Tarver and Loring, who have helped the Division II Roadrunners to a 13-1 start, had never really spoken until CSUB started recruiting them. Now they’re part of a tight-knit group that is atop the California Collegiate Athletic Association standings at 6-1 heading into Friday’s game at Cal State Monterey Bay. “I knew of (Loring) because of basketball,” Tarver said, “but I didn’t know her personally.” Loring was a two-time Foothill League Offensive Most Valuable Player at Saugus and two-time All-Western State Conference player at COC. Tarver, a Foothill League Co-MVP last season, is Valencia’s all-time scoring leader. Among their teammates is fellow Foothill League product Christine Kepenekian, a freshman guard from Burbank High. Luring Loring and Tarver to Bakersfield from the Santa Clarita Valley wasn’t difficult for fifth-year coach Tim La Kose, a Cal State Northridge graduate who spent eight years at Cal Lutheran, where he’s the women’s basketball program’s winningest coach. Heading north provided them a chance to get away from home without being too far away, and CSUB’s move next season from Division II to Division I promised a chance to play at the highest level. Loring is the third COC player to join La Kose at CSUB, following Sharkia Jones, the Roadunners’ starting point guard last season, and forward Ofolangi Mailangi. Loring said two seasons at COC readied her for Division II basketball. Tarver’s transition has been facilitated by the Roadrunners’ unity. “The level of competition is better than high school,” she said, “but we have really good chemistry.” La Kose is most impressed with Tarver’s versatility and Loring’s ability to score and rebound. Tarver chose the Roadrunners over Arizona and Howard. “I just fell in love with the program,” she said. “I didn’t think about having an immediate impact or starting. I liked the group of girls and the coaching staff.” Loring decided on CSUB after receiving strong interest from La Kose. She had hoped to attend UC Santa Barbara, but the Gauchos didn’t express interest. The Roadrunners’ 74-72 victory over UCSB in a season-opening exhibition was particularly satisfying for her. “I didn’t really care if Bakersfield was Division I or Division II,” Loriing said. “It wasn’t big, but it is a winning program. A lot of the (big schools) never made offers, and I was their second or third choice. I wanted to be at a place where there would be more playing time and more part of a team.” TWO ROADRUNNERS Valencia High product Kelley Taver and former Saugus High/College of the Canyons standout Jessie Loring have helped Cal State Bakersfield to a 13-1 record in their first seasons at the four-year level.

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 “I’ve woken up some nights and wanted to drive till the car goes off a cliff,” he said. “And an hour later, poetry is coming to me. I want to go act. I want to go teach. I want to dance. “I can be an actor no matter what happens,” he continued. “I was in the middle of a job when my father committed suicide, and I went to work the next day.” Conversing with Blake is like riding an emotional roller coaster, as he goes from reflective and poetic one moment to a rant about reporters the next. “You ask too many questions,” he barks at one point. “Don’t you know not to interrupt an actor when he’s on a roll?” “I’m not on trial anymore,” he declares angrily at another point. “You’re dealing with Michael James Gubitosi (his given name) now. … I’m going to survive no matter what.” MALIBU – A year after Robert Blake was acquitted in criminal court of killing his wife, the former tough-guy actor spends his days exercising Arabian horses at a friends’ ranch above the Pacific Ocean and planning his acting comeback. In November, a civil court jury found Blake liable for the death of his wife and ordered him to pay her family $30 million. Blake, 72, acknowledges frequent despair in the past 12 months. But the actor who played the hard-boiled cop in the 1970s TV show “Baretta” says he’s finally begun to emerge from that dark period, having concluded, “I want to live.” “Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of my acquittal,” he told The Associated Press on Friday in the first interview he has granted since his civil trial concluded four months ago. He threatens to end the interview when a question is asked about Rosie, the young daughter he had with the wife he was accused of killing, Bonny Lee Bakley. At another point, saying he wants to “sing a song to Rosie,” he launches into a melodic rendition of the pop song “You Are So Beautiful to Me.” Blake was interviewed at a ranch where he said he is working as a stable boy. He said the owners, who are friends, allow him to exercise some of the horses at the site, filled with the sounds of roosters crowing and horses whinnying. Blake also spoke about filing for bankruptcy protection in the wake of his trials and railed against “the guys who wear the suits,” lawyers and accountants he said have profited from his case. The only one for whom he had kind words was M. Gerald Schwartzbach, the criminal lawyer who won his acquittal. “I love Gerry Schwartzbach,” he said. “He’s my friend, and I’m his friend. He happens to have saved my life.” Before the death of Bakley, Blake was a wealthy man who had invested money from his film and TV career in real estate. His worth at the time of her death had been estimated to be as much as $4 million, but his financial records have been sealed and are now in the hands of bankruptcy court. The properties have since been sold, with much of the money used for his legal defense. Blake points out that he offered Bakley’s children a settlement of $250,000 before the civil trial began, and they rejected it. “I offered them hard money, tax-free. I said I don’t want to give it to the lawyers,” Blake said. Instead, the family members took Blake to trial, and a jury awarded them $30 million, an amount unlikely to be paid. Blake said he is broke and living on his Social Security and Screen Actors Guild pension. With his bankruptcy case pending, he said he needs permission to get a new car or search for a house with a yard. He’s living in a small apartment now, a far cry from the homes he occupied when he was rich. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

October became National Pork Month. Today every month is pork month with pigs going to market continually throughout the year. We take time in October to thank pork producers as well as sit at the table to talk about the safe, healthy, delicious products with consumers being produced on Ohio farms today.There is more to Ohio’s pork industry than bacon alone! Ohio ranks eighth in pork production. Stats say there are almost 3 million pigs in the state, producing over $580 million in revenue. Pigs are big pig business! Animal emissions get a lot of PR these days. No problem, pigs are earth friendly! The National Pork Checkoff states that pigs are only responsible for .33% of U.S. emissions. Manure goes back to the dirt to turn it into rich soil for crop production.Pork of today is a lean, mean protein machine. Three ounces of lean pork loin, sirloin or tenderloin provides 24 grams of protein. That’s a powerful punch in a deck of card size portion! This serving of pork has over 16% less fat than back in the days of my childhood. Pork is packed full of important nutrients. It is an excellent source of thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, phosphorus and Vitamin B-6.Enjoy some of the pork recipes below and know that Ohio pig farmers are hard at work. They are raising a healthy product for you as well as maintaining farms that are sustainable and earth friendly!

first_imgQuick – you have 140 characters to say something witty, include a link and disclose the fact that the company you’re tweeting about happened to give you a free sample of the product so you could give it a whirl. What do you do?The Word of Mouth Marketing Association says you should use #samp, one of three new hashtags it has adopted specifically for this purpose, which tells everyone you received a sample of what you’re tweeting about.The WOMMA released a set of guidelines this month in response to last months Federal Trade Commission adoption of a guide on endorsements and testimonials in advertising. According to WOMMA’s Social Media Marketing Disclosure Guide (.pdf), the FTC requires a disclosure of all “material connections”. It defines these connections as any connection that could “affect the credibility consumers give to that blogger’s statements.” The three hashtags that WOMMA is proposing are #spon for sponsored tweets, #paid for paid tweets and #samp for when the blogger received a sample. Depending on how you approach this, you can either use it as an AdBlock opportunity and make sure none of these sorts of tweets get through to you, you can go out and seek them, or you just be aware of what you’re clicking on and why it was suggested.We’re not sure we’d necessarily recommend filtering out these tweets, though. A quick search for #spon on Twitter revealed some great links. Remember, these are not necessarily just terrible ads, like you might be force fed on some website, they’re just tweets where the tweeter is disclosing the full background. As more and more people are getting paid to tweet, we hope these tags will make that more clear.With companies like McDonalds, Michelin, Dell and Porter Novelli using WOMMA guidelines, we’re willing to bet you’re about to start seeing these tags more and more.
