Rodgers tight-lipped over Remy to Liverpool deal

first_img Queens Park Rangers and France forward Loic Remy 1 Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has remained tight-lipped over reports the Reds are close to signing France international Loic Remy.An £8.5million deal for the Queens Park Rangers forward is thought to be virtually completed, with the 27-year-old pictured arriving at the club’s American pre-season training camp on Tuesday in preparation for his medical.But when quizzed on a possible move for Remy, Rodgers refused to disclose any information about the Frenchman, as well as any of the side’s remaining summer transfer targets.The Merseyside outfit have also been linked with approaches for Atletico Madrid right-back Javier Manquillo, Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri and Southampton defender Dejan Lovren.“Until they are signed and agreed to come in I will only talk about them then,” the Reds boss told a press conference ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Roma at Fenway Park, home of Major League Baseball’s Boston Red Sox, on Wednesday.“I shall not talk about speculation on any player until they have signed.”The Northern Irishman was, however, more vocal about a player who has recently left Anfield – Luis Suarez.The forward signed for Barcelona in a £75million move following the World Cup, where he was guilty of another biting storm.But when asked whether he or Liverpool felt let down by the Uruguay striker after they stood by him over the last two years, Rodgers said: “No, not at all. Luis, in my two years at the club, has been sensational in his game.“Of course there’s been issues which is well documented but it’s in the past. He was a brilliant player for us, for me I’ll always see him as a good man and a good friend.“He gave everything to Liverpool and he left Liverpool after his time as a world-class talent. It’s obviously a shame he is not here but Liverpool is a club that is bigger than any individual.“He’s a fantastic player but we will move forward and there’s real excitement going into this season.“We’ve qualified for the Champions League, we went close in the title. I’m really excited by the player’s we’ve brought in – young players with great profile who play how we want to play and that will allow us to go on and hopefully continue to progress.”last_img read more

Martin Canning salutes players as Hamilton secure top flight safety

first_img“I thought the attitude and the application of the players was first-class again.“It was something we’ve done throughout the season.“We’ve had a poor result and performance the week before and then put in a strong performance to get the result the following week.” Hamilton Accies manager Martin Canning saluted his players after they secured their Premiership safety with a 1-0 win over Dundee.Canning’s side secured victory thanks to Carlton Morris’ eighth minute winner which moved them seven points above second-bottom Kilmarnock with two games left.It could have been a bit more relaxed for the Lanarkshire club had Eamonn Brophy’s 47th minute strike counted, but it was ruled out for offside.Canning said: “I’m so proud of the players. “There have been times when it’s been difficult but they’ve continued to believe in themselves and I’ve believed in them.“I’m just delighted with the end result. At the start of the season, our aim was to stay in the league.“We had a good start which I said to the players at the time was crucial to the end goal of staying up.“At that stage, people start talking about top-six and, of course, it would be great if we could do that but our main objective was to make sure we stayed in the league.last_img read more

Grooming future leaders: priceless

first_imgRay Maota Four hundred and fifty female pupils from 10 schools in four of the country’s provinces will benefit from an entrepreneurship development programme sponsored by MasterCard Worldwide. (Image: MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. For more free images, visit the image library) TV presenter and poet Lebo Mashile said that learners need to be motivated as building their confidence will enable them to write their own success stories. (Image: Cheesekids) MEDIA CONTACTS • Linda McClure  Junior Achievement South Africa: MD  + 27 11 331 3150 RELATED ARTICLES • Putting education first • Teens take control of their moolah • Instilling a love of reading • All aboard the Youth ExpressFour hundred and fifty female pupils from 10 schools in four of the country’s provinces will benefit from an entrepreneurship development programme sponsored by MasterCard Worldwide and run by Junior Achievement South Africa (Jasa).Through JA BizVenture, the grade 11 pupils will learn skills ranging from managing their own businesses and money to life skills including conduct in business. The courses will run over the next 11 weeks until August, and will be conducted after school hours.Jasa is a non-profit organisation which partners with the business community as well as teachers to develop much-needed entrepreneurial skills for young South Africans who are still in school.The programme was launched at Orlando Stadium in Soweto on 30 May where Jasa MD Linda McClure and Zanele Twala, country director of human rights advocacy group Action Aid and a trustee of Jasa, spoke on the importance of this and similar projects. Also present was TV presenter and poet Lebo Mashile, who addressed the pupils, teachers and female business leaders who were in attendance.“This programme will equip the young women with the skills that they will need to launch their own businesses, so that they in turn can employ others,” said McClure.“A project like this will help break the cycle of unemployment faced by school leavers that threatens the future of South Africa’s youth, and will address job creation, which is one of government’s top priorities.”The schools involved in the programme are in Gauteng, the North West, KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape.Anna Jones, from MasterCard Worldwide’s South Africa office, said the country had come a long way in giving women access to education and regular employment opportunities, which are essential building blocks to further empowerment, financial independence and leadership.“This programme addresses all of these building blocks in its course content, and we look forward to welcoming these pupils into the business world when they emerge as successful entrepreneurs,” she said.What the programme entailsThe pupils each receive start-up funding to the value of R1 000 to come up with a product or service from which they can make a profit – they have to repay the funding to MasterCard once they’ve completed the course. They are also given the services of facilitators who would mentor them.Participants are required to present their product at the end of the course.“The pupils learn the theoretical aspects of entrepreneurship first before embarking on the practical side of things,” explained McClure.In addition to the sales and marketing training, they are taught how to conduct themselves in a business environment, conduct market research, open a business banking account and other aspects related to running a business.There is no strict selection for participants, and the schools involved choose the pupils they wish to put on the programme. One requirement, though, is that those who are selected be passionate about learning business skills.To incentivise the process, pupils are allowed to keep the remainder of the money they would have made, making the programme financially rewarding for them as well.“Education and skills transfer are only part of the formula needed to help young people achieve their full potential. They also need to be motivated, and they need to build the confidence to be able to write their own success stories from the start,” said Mashile.Boitumelo Chenepe took part in the programme while studying at St Anne’s High School in the North West in 2010.“The programme helped me learn about the business world and its challenges, and I also learnt how to become a successful businesswoman,” she said.“I now know that I was meant to be an entrepreneur.”Train them while they’re youngA project like this is essential as South Africa, like the rest of the world, is battling with a situation where school leavers make up a large number of the unemployed. Entrepreneurship has been highlighted as a way to get them to be self-sustainable and make work available for others in the process.According to Nimo Naidoo of the Sanlam/Business Partners Entrepreneur of the Year competition, the UN estimated in 2011 that 74-million people between the ages of 15 and 24 remained unemployed worldwide, while over 6-million young people dropped out of the labour force globally.Ezra Ndwandwe of Dualpoint Holdings, a business solutions consultancy, recently addressed up-and-coming entrepreneurs at a discussion forum hosted by Brand South Africa on 12 June, and highlighted the importance of entrepreneurship.“Entrepreneurship is overused and least understood. It is about innovators and creators of solutions that fill a gap,” he said.“It is about coming up with solutions to societal problems and ways to create employment for others.”last_img read more
