Zlatan apologizes to Manchester United fans for arriving too late

first_imgThe great Zlatan Ibrahimovic feel very sorry for not being able to produce more for Manchester United and playing for the club at a later stage of his career.All the fans that got to watch and enjoy Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s career in Europe from start to finish, know very well how good the striker was in his better years, all but the Manchester United fans at least. When the Swedish striker player for clubs like Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, and even at PSG, his level was at the very top amongst the best strikers in the world. By the time the Red Devils attempted to sign Ibrahimovic, it was a little late in his career and he doesn’t feel like he delivered the Zlatan we all knew from his best form.? “I think the boss has something going on. We will keep that a secret!”#MUFC #MUTOUR— Manchester United (@ManUtd) July 24, 2018harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…Then there was also that nasty knee injury he suffered on his first season playing with United, that prompted a very short-lived career with the English club and left the fans thirsty for more Zlatan goals after scoring 28 goals in his first 46 appearances. Now that the Red Devils are visiting Los Angeles for the summer tour, the LA Galaxy striker has already visited his former team and spoken to the club’s communication staff about the best moments he lived in the club. However, Zlatan does have some regrets.“I feel sorry for the fans – if they’d seen me younger, they’d have seen a different lion. For the Premier League, it would have been dangerous, as I would have eaten them for breakfast; instead, I took them for lunch. But I came: they wanted me, I gave them me and I took over. Been there and done that. I would need more time to explain my feelings but let’s start with a big thanks to everybody – what they did was amazing and I hope they are as happy as I am.“I gave as much as I could for as long as I could; when I got injured, I got support in a different way. They always stood behind me and my team-mates. “They are special: everywhere I see red, I think about United. It will remain in history and my career; when I look back at my time with United, I will do it with a smile. I wish them all the best in the future,” Zlatan told the Manchester United website.last_img read more

Pellegrini confident Carroll can rediscover best form for West Ham

first_imgWest Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini urged Andy Carroll to remain patient with his recovery and added that he’s certain the Englishman will rediscover his best formCarroll’s six and half year spell at West Ham has been blighted by recurring injury problems, which have restricted him to just 136 appearances in total.However, the former Liverpool striker scored his first goal since April in West Ham’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Birmingham on Saturday after returning from an ankle injury.This would have come as a welcome boost for Carrol, who was told last month by Pellegrini that he will have to prove to the club why they should hand him a new contract.“We are very happy with how Andy played,” Pellegrini told the club website.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“If you review his game, he scored, his play was good and he missed another chance to score, he cleared two or three aerial duels in our box, so in the way he plays, he will return to be the player we know he can be.“I never had any doubt Andy Carroll wants to stay here. He is happy here, he wants to play for the club, he is happy in London and he doesn’t want to go anywhere.“He wants to play like every player but he must be patient. When you come back from a long injury and you are not competing weekly, you have to be careful not to get another injury.“That’s why we are giving him some amount of minutes every game. I think if he recovers his shape and continues working every day of the week without any injuries there are not too many players with his quality.”The Hammers will next face Arsenal in a Premier League game this Saturday at their London Stadium.last_img read more

DEC Finds Bacteria Levels Below State Standard On Kenai River Beaches

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has completed the 2018 Kenai Beach Monitoring Program for coastal areas in Kenai.Beaches monitored this season includeSouth Kenai River BeachNorth Kenai River BeachEnterococci levels were found to be below the state standards for recreational uses at both beaches. The City of Kenai has implemented Best Management Practices to remove fish carcasses discarded on the recreational beaches during the July Personal Use Fishery. The practices were undertaken to discourage the presence of seabirds and therefore reduce the bacteria from seabird waste. Nancy Sonafrank with DEC: “The high bacteria had been found during previous fisheries and we think it’s mostly related to nearby seagulls that are feeding off of the fish as well.”  The DEC plans to continue Bacteria monitoring for 2019 to help further determine bacteria sources, and to understand the natural background levels of bacteria. Further sampling will continue during the recreation season in summer, 2019. Water samples were collected weekly from June 12 to September 7 at the two beach locations, after the DEC announced water quality samples taken on both beaches contained levels above Alaska’s enterococci and fecal coliform bacteria limit for recreation and harvesting for consumption of raw fish and shellfish. The purpose of DEC’s 2018-2019 monitoring on the Kenai River coastal beach areas is to evaluate background levels of bacteria before, during and after the fishery season to determine progress towards meeting water quality standards. The 2018 monitoring location maps and an analytical data results table are available on the Alaska BEACH Grant Program Website; the 2018 monitoring report will be posted on the website in late 2018.last_img read more
