Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho praises ball boy at Champions League clash against Olympiakos FORMER BOSS Tim Sherwood has warned Tottenham that they will lose Harry Kane in 18 months if they fail to win a trophy.The 50-year-old, who handed Kane his first Premier League start back in 2014, believes that Kane’s ambition will force him to leave if he doesn’t believe he can win silverware.3 Jose Mourinho has 18 months to turn Harry Kane into a trophy winner, according to Tim SherwoodCredit: Getty – Contributor3Despite having won numerous individual accolades including the World Cup Golden Boot and two Premier League Golden Boots, Kane is still yet to win a trophy in his eight years at Spurs.Mourinho has been trying to get his key man onside, and Sherwood believes that Kane will give the Special One a chance to bring some silverware to North London.He told beIN Sports: “[Kane] needs to win something. So I think he’ll give it a period of time, certainly next season.”The end of this season and next season and see if they can get closer to winning something. And if they don’t, then he will leave.”Kane has lost two cup finals with Tottenham – in the League Cup in 2015 and last season’s Champions League in Madrid – as well as finishing as a runner-up in the Premier League.Sherwood added: “All professional footballers are now going to be rich when they finish no matter who they are, even bad ones.”They are all going to be millionaires, that is the way it is. But you want trophies, you want to say what you have won at the end of it.”Spurs’ diabolical start to the season sees them already a staggering 20 points behind leaders Liverpool in the Premier League.3And a much-rotated team was unceremoniously dumped out of the League Cup in embarrassing fashion against League Two Colchester United.Spurs are still competing in the Champions League and FA Cup this season, however, and Kane told reporters after the 4-2 win over Olympiakos: “When you are winning games it definitely helps your relationship and hopefully we can build a strong one [with Mourinho].”We know we both want to win big competitions.LATEST TOTTENHAM NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrongGossipSPURRED ONTottenham table contract offer for Bayern Munich’s teenage starlet Taylor BoothExclusivePASS THE TESTEngland’s NRL-based stars urge bosses to make room for a Test this year”That’s the team’s aim, that’s my aim and that is the manager’s aim.”Hopefully I can help him do that this year and see where we can go.”Despite Spurs’ poor start, Kane has 13 goals in 17 games this season, and will be hoping to take good form into next summer’s European Championships with England.Mourinho’s first ten games at SpursNov 23 – West Ham (A)Nov 26 – Olympiakos (H)Nov 30 – Bournemouth (H)Dec 4 – Man Utd (A)Dec 7 – Burnley (H)Dec 11 – Bayern Munich (A)Dec 15 – Wolves (A)Dec 22 – Chelsea (H)Dec 26 – Brighton (H)Dec 28 – Norwich (A)

Former Wales defender and assistant manager Mark Bowen claims Wales’ 0-0 draw with Belgium is a ‘watershed’ result for Chris Coleman’s side.The Red Dragons are currently second in their qualifying group for Euro 2016, with six matches remaining.“It was a watershed game for Wales,” Bowen told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “The games they have played so far, where they beat Andorra and Cyprus and drew at home with Bosnia, have been results we would have expected.“They hadn’t really had that game, like Ireland had against Germany, which was a watershed game.“They have gone and proved that they can go and do something outside of the box. One thing that’s really pleased me about the draw in Belgium was the defence. There has also been question marks about whether we could go to these places and keep a clean sheet.”
A new public phone box is being erected in Carndonagh town centre – but it’s one with a difference.Funds raised by the Neal Martin Memorial Fund committee are to be used to erect the phone box, which will contain a public defibrillator for the townspeople.The unveiling of the Defibrillator Phone Box will take place at the Easter Monday Parade in Carndonagh at 2.30pm. “Following on from the Fantastic fundraising efforts of the local community, after the sudden death of Neal Martin Doherty, the committee set up to decide on how best to use the monies raised, have decided to erect a Phone-Box containing a Defibrillator in Carndonagh town centre,” a spokesperson said.“We have taken the idea from the Heart of Killarney. The phone box will add to the security of having a defibrillator outside for the public to use as it needs a PIN number to enter.“So, when you call the emergency services, they supply you with details of your nearest defibrillator & PIN number to gain entry.”The committee that we set up, also supplied heated outside cabinets to Carndonagh GAA club and Carndonagh FC.The spokesperson said: “After the initial launch, we will be starting a course of training for the local community on how to use the defibrillators. “We will take details from anyone who would like to be involved in this training at the Easter Parade. We are delighted to now have three defibrillators available 24/7 in Carndonagh incase of an emergency.”Carndonagh’s new public phone box has one big, lifesaving difference was last modified: March 30th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CarndonaghdefibrillatorHeart of CarndonaghInishowenNeal Martin DohertyNeal Martin Memorial Fund

The crowd after the Fekir shot #DENFRA pic.twitter.com/54WsA7lY7M— Default Pessimist🏴 (@JustAndrewNow) June 26, 2018 Well that was boring.France v Denmark played out a goalless draw in the final match of Group C, with both nations going through to the last 16 of the World Cup.But the poor display on the pitch was not well received at all.“We can only hope that these two frauds get humiliated and knocked out in the round of 16,” Adrian Durham ranted on talkSPORT during the live coverage. “This was two sides not bothering to try to score a goal with any kind of professional conviction. It just fell short of any suggestion of collusion.”One user on Twitter even suggested the game was good preparation for a season of watching Manchester United. The team have been criticised at times for their style of play under manager Jose Mourinho.Below, talkSPORT.com has gathered some tweets from frustrated fans who listened and watched the match.What did you think of it? Denmark are safely through to the round of 16, they have a chance to top their group at a #WorldCup and they have absolutely no interest in winning this game. Absolutely shocking mentality, really hope they go out in the next round. #Pathetic #DEN #DENFRA— Danny (@DannyNE12) June 26, 2018 Seen some great games so far at this World Cup. #DEN v #FRA is not one of them. Crowd booing. Two teams coasting towards the last 16. No intensity whatsoever. 0-0 68 minszzzzzzz #DENFRA— Oliver Kay (@OliverKayTimes) June 26, 2018 I once locked myself in the stairwell between my flat and the front door for three hours without a phone or a book. That was more exciting than this. #DENFRA— Caspar Salmon (@CasparSalmon) June 26, 2018 😡 “What an absolute disgrace to football this has been”Don’t miss this EPIC rant from @talkSPORTDrive after the #DENFRA match!#WorldCup| #TSWorldCup pic.twitter.com/qCRBZvVKEe— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) June 26, 2018 Am I the only one who thinks that a nil nil draw in your last group match should earn you automatic disqualification from the #Worldcup #DENFRA pic.twitter.com/haXQXJYeIo— Nolene Dougan #TrustAllWomen #NowForNI (@NoleneDougan) June 26, 2018 #DENFRA i hope both teams lose their next match, this was nothing besides an insult to all the fans that bought tickets for this game— 구야 (@kya_113) June 26, 2018 France vs denmark is watching like any united game..Team is full of superstars but there manager still parked the bus..France vs denmark is a good rehearsal for utd fans next season😂— KLoppLover (@DeepakM39440766) June 26, 2018 This France Denmark game is just preparing me for United next season.— Tikitactic (@TikiTactic) June 26, 2018 talkSPORT are with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup with more than 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network.

A CO Donegal solicitor who blew €177,000 of his clients’ monies to top up his pension and pay his household bills has lost a bid to keep his identity secret.Andrew G Morrow, practising as David Wilson and Co Solicitors, Raphoe, has been found guilty by the law society of dishonesty in his practice.He admitted using money from the firm’s client account for his personal pension contributions, health insurance, home bills, credit card payments and his mother’s care costs. He also admitted trying to hide the losses and was attempting to pay the money back by taking out a loan.Mr Justice David Keane froze the solicitor’s bank accounts and Morrow agreed not to practice as a solicitor to all legal proceedings had ended.Nessa Bird for the Law Society told a Dublin court that the society’s investigation of Morrow’s practice revealed a minimum deficit of €177,657 in the client account. She said the society had been unable to ascertain the full amount of the deficit as the practice’s books of account had not been properly written up.The society had also discovered that Morrow had attempted to conceal the deficit by recording various sums as being loans to him when they were client funds. A lawyer for Morrow, Sean Sexton, said his client intended to wind down his practice and had obtained various loans to cover the deficit.The Law Society opposed an application from Morrow to remain anonymous until all proceedings were finished.Mr Justice Keane dismissed the anonymity application, said nothing had been put before the court that would merit having the hearing being conducted in private.

21 May 2014Brazil marked the completion of one of its biggest infrastructure projects ahead of the 2014 Fifa World Cup on Tuesday.The newly inaugurated terminal 3 at Sao Paulo’s Guarulhos International Airport, delivered on time and within budget by a consortium that includes Airports Company South Africa, has been described as one of the success stories of Brazil’s World Cup preparations.The majority of football fans arriving in Brazil for the World Cup will pass through the terminal, which will will eventually handle all international flights to Latin America’s biggest city.“After a year and nine months of construction, we are excited about the on-time completion of phase 1,” Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) chief executive Bongani Maseko said on Tuesday following the official opening by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.“The readiness of the gateway to Brazil is assured,” Maseko said. “This new terminal follows international standards, and will become a reference point for airport infrastructure in Brazil. Acsa’s commitment to the concession, through its provision of technical skills and expertise in operational efficiencies, will come to fruition as Brazil’s busiest airport increases passenger capacity by 12-million a year, in addition to the current 30-million handled by the three existing terminals.”The new Terminal 3 was modelled on the modern structure of Asian and European airports, with two buildings and five levels. Dedicated exclusively to international flights, it features technologies and equipment that are on par with the best airports in the world, with two additional aprons that can accommodate 34 aircraft.Gustavo Figueiredo, chief operations officer of Terminal 3, told news agency Bloomberg that the terminal – built on sustainable engineering lines and including such features as water recycling and windows with heat filters – was finished on time and within the US$1.3-billion budget. “Operationally, it’s been a success from day one,” Figueiredo told Bloomberg.Acsa, through a consortium including Brazilian national airport authority Infraero and Brazilian company Invepar, won the contract for the expansion, maintenance and management of the airport in 2012, following its successful development of South Africa’s major airports ahead of the 2010 Fifa World Cup.Acsa is also part of the consortium, led by Indian conglomerate GVK, that won the contract for the upgrade and management of Mumbai International Airport. In February, the consortium opened Mumbai International’s new Terminal 2, increasing the airport’s annual capacity to 40-million passengers per annum with a retail footprint of 200 000 square feet.As with Guarulhos International, the new Terminal 2 was also built to be highly energy- and water efficient, with a design that cuts overall energy consumption by up to 23%.And in April, Acsa signed a memorandum of understanding with Ghana Airports Company Limited to provide advisory and technical consultancy services on all airport-related matters in Ghana.“Our involvement in projects of this scale and magnitude, while driven by the strategic desire to connect markets, has enabled the company to continue to provide world-class expertise for airport infrastructure development,” Maseko said.The opening of the new terminal at Guarulhos International demonstrated “a well-founded belief in the depth, wealth of experience and expert skills that Airports Company South Africa has accumulated over the 20 years of its existence”.SAinfo reporter and SAnews.gov.za
