Zlatan Ibrahimovic top scorer in Serie A: How is he still doing it in his 40th year? | Football News

first_imgWhy run when you can fly? That was the pithy message that Zlatan Ibrahimovic sent out after his overhead-kick winner at Udinese. There is always a soundbite when it comes to the Swede but the astonishing thing is that in his 40th year, he still has the answers.Against Verona on Sunday, with AC Milan set for defeat, his skied penalty looked set to prove costly. Still he had the last word. A last-minute equaliser maintaining Milan’s unbeaten start to the Serie A season. They remain top. He remains Italy’s top scorer.- Advertisement – Zlatan Ibrahimovic of AC MIlan looks on during the Serie A match between AC Milan and Bologna FC at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on September 21, 2020 in Milan, Italy Zlatan Ibrahimovic's overhead kick for AC Milan against UdineseImage:Ibrahimovic’s overhead kick for AC Milan against Udinese secured the victory – Advertisement – Former chief executive Adriano Galliani points out that Ibrahimovic will demand more “if he notices that any member of the team does not give their best during training”. Asmir Begovic, who was on loan at Milan alongside Ibrahimovic last season, confirms it.“He just holds himself to the highest standards each and every day,” Begovic tells Sky Sports. “He holds his team-mates and everyone at the club accountable to those standards. I think it drives everyone to do better when you have someone of his presence in the locker room.”There is a softer side too.“Behind closed doors, he is a normal guy,” adds Begovic. “He likes to joke, have fun and banter with everyone. Of course, the public persona is a different kettle of fish.”Cole agrees.“The thing is that he is a quiet person. He might play to the cameras at times and want to be thought of as having that persona but he is a quiet guy. He comes in and he enjoys the dressing room with all the lads. He is a very good team player. Then he goes home. His kids are getting bigger now so he spends time with them. He is a family man.”Even so, Cole laughs at the thought of what it would be like to play under Ibrahimovic if he were ever to turn to management when his long playing career finally does come to an end.“He would definitely have got the best out of me but whether I would have lasted a full season under him, I don’t know,” he says. “I would not like to be a player under him.”Playing with him, however, tends to work out rather well. Thirteen times his team has topped the table at the end of the season. Fourteen would be truly sensational.But the signs are good. Milan have built a talented young team with Rafael Leao and Alexis Saelemaekers in the wide positions and Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer in midfield. All four are at least a decade-and-a-half younger than the man who is leading the line. 0:19 Ashley Cole and Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrate together for Los Angeles GalaxyImage:Ashley Cole and Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrate together for Los Angeles Galaxy AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is among the top shooters in EuropeImage:Ibrahimovic’s high shot volume should ensure the goals keep flowing for Milan Eight goals in five games. Despite missing two matches because of Covid-19, he is the master marksman aiming to be capocannoniere once again and this flurry is no fluke.The chances are still flowing, the ball still seemingly drawn to him inside the penalty box. Former Milan team-mate Antonio Cassano insists that Ibrahimovic is still the best player in Serie A and others are beginning to accept that he might just be right.There will be those who argue that it says much about the standard of Italian football right now. The truth, surely, is that it says far more about the extraordinary staying power of Ibrahimovic. Three-and-a-half years have passed since that cruciate knee ligament injury when playing for Manchester United against Anderlecht robbed him of his big moment in Stockholm.The 2017 Europa League final looked like the perfect send-off. He was already 35, after all, and a major injury surely confirmed that his days at the top were over. When he battled back to fitness only to be deemed surplus to requirements by United, that seemed to confirm it.What has followed, in the United States with Los Angeles Galaxy, and with his triumphant return to Milan defies some logic. But those who know Ibrahimovic and the mentality that has driven him throughout his career, can help to explain the seemingly inexplicable.- Advertisement – Cole is more balanced in his recollections. Although the first two words that he reaches for when asked to describe Ibrahimovic’s character are “crazy” and “wild”, he prefers to focus on the positive contributions of a player who scored 52 goals in 56 appearances for the club.“No, he was a good team-mate,” he says. “At times, some players maybe could not handle him with his strong words. To be his team-mate, you have got to be mentally tough. You have to take it with a pinch of salt at times because he is just trying to push you to be better.“It certainly did work at times with the younger players. They improved playing with him. Others maybe dipped a bit because they could not handle it. But it was a pleasure to play with him and he was somebody that we needed in the dressing room at the time.”That is the crux of it. Ibrahimovic is demanding but high standards matter.When Portuguese midfielder Joao Pedro revealed the words that were spoken after Galaxy surrendered a two-goal advantage to lose 3-2 to Houston Dynamo, Ibrahimovic’s comments were reported as an idle boast about owning an island. It fitted the stereotype.The reality is that he was letting his team-mates know how much this mattered to him, how much he craved success for himself and for others at LA Galaxy, despite all his wealth.“He gave us a talking to,” said Joao Pedro.“He said, ‘If you are going to come here to go to the beach or take a walk in Hollywood, just say so. I have 300 million in the bank and an island. I don’t need this’.”That is the mentality that he has brought back to Milan.This is a group that needed it, a club that has not won the title since his previous stint, one that has not finished in the top four of Serie A for seven seasons now.They need his goals, but they need his personality too. Paolo Maldini, the Milan legend turned sporting director, says that “it is not only his importance on the pitch but also the competitiveness that he has brought” back to the Milanello training ground. Together with 26-year-old Hakan Calhanoglu pulling the string in support, they are providing the service. Ibrahimovic has had more touches inside the opposition penalty box – 57 – than any other player in Serie A. The result is that he has had 32 shots too.Milan have movement. Their striker is doing the rest.“Seeing these players play around Ibrahimovic is so beautiful,” says former Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko. “I think Zlatan has found the right environment.”More than that, he has helped to create it.Cole knows Italian football from his time at Roma but he stops short of agreeing that a league with a reputation for a measured approached is suiting his ageing frame better. This is no resurgence. Instead, it is a continuation. Wherever he goes, Ibrahimovic does not stop.“If I am honest, anywhere suits him. He is getting older, of course he is. He is nearly 40 years of age. But with that mentality that he has, with that will power that he has to not lose and to still be the best or to think you are the best, that drives him and pushes him through.“I definitely think that if he came back to the Premier League now he would still be a handful for teams to play against. I’d expect him to score goals at any level, to be honest.” Neil Lennon says Ibrahimovic is among the greatest players to have ever lived Paolo Maldini during the Serie A match between SS Lazio and AC Milan at Stadio Olimpico on July 4, 2020 in Rome, Italy.Image:Paolo Maldini credits Ibrahimovic for his impact on and off the pitch at Milan – Advertisement – But how long can he continue?“If you ask him, he would probably tell you that lions don’t mix with humans or something like that,” adds Cole. “I think he will go on until his body feels like he cannot handle it and he is not feeling that love for the game. But I think he will still play for another year.”At this rate, that could be many more goals away yet. AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic ranks among the best strikers in Europe this season for goals per 90 minutesImage:Ibrahimovic boasts one of the best strike rates of any player in Europe this season Ibrahimovic was back in action for Manchester United just seven months after suffering that ligament damage. His prompt return sparked the line about lions recovering differently to humans. But his subsequent struggle to make an impact was a worrying sign.What sets Ibrahimovic apart from so many others of his age, is that when he moved to Los Angeles in March 2018, he refused to relent. The work continued. He built himself back up.“Most of it was gym work,” reveals Cole “He’d had that serious injury, the injury that kept him out, of course, at Manchester United. I saw that hard work he did in the gym. The ability and the aggression that he has when he is pushing these weights around.“On the pitch and at the training ground, you would not have thought that he was nearly 37 years of age at the time. He was always ready to train, he was always willing to train. He gave 100 per cent in training. That work ethic, that mentality, never changed.”Ibrahimovic’s mentality continues to divide opinion.There are those who perceive his treatment of others as problematic and it is easy to see why. Kingsley Coman, a youngster at Paris Saint-Germain during Ibrahimovic’s time in France, complained that he provided no advice and only cared about himself.That behaviour manifested itself on the pitch in Los Angeles where any words spoken tended to be negative ones. A bemused Florian Jungwirth of San Jose Earthquakes recalls the memory of Ibrahimovic “really insulting” his colleagues throughout one particular game.There was the video of him pushing Galaxy team-mate Sebastian Lletget away as he prepared to face a free-kick. Lletget later said that he never felt free while playing alongside Ibrahimovic, even admitting that there were times when he wanted to walk off the field.“It is tough to play against him and tougher to play with him.”As Ibrahimovic’s former international team-mate Anders Svensson saw it, it was as if he was trying to test new players. “It is like he wants to break them down to see what they can do.” “I am not surprised,” Ashley Cole tells Sky Sports. “I had the pleasure of playing with him. I got to see the professional that he is. The hard work that he puts in behind the scenes.“The physique that he has shows the work that he puts in off the pitch after having a serious injury. To come back with everyone thinking he had gone to America for a holiday, to be top scorer in Serie A, I think it is a credit to his professionalism and to him as a man.”last_img read more

Joe Gomez: Liverpool defender suffers injury during England training | Football News

first_img Image:Gomez’s central defensive partner Virgil van Dijk is expected to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury A long-term absence for Gomez would be a major blow to Liverpool, who are expected to be without fellow centre-back Virgil van Dijk for the rest of the season after he suffered a severe knee injury against Everton last month.Jurgen Klopp has also been without central midfielder Fabinho, who deputised at centre-back following Van Dijk’s injury, but the Brazilian is expected to return to action after the international break. Arsenal wing-back Bukayo Saka is grateful to England captain Harry Kane for helping him settle in the national team and hopes to repay the faith shown in him by manager Gareth Southgate.Saka, who made his England senior debut against Wales last month, has been called up to Southgate’s squad for the second time ahead of matches against Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Iceland.The 19-year-old has enjoyed a meteoric rise since breaking into Arsenal’s first team in November 2018, and he revealed it was Tottenham striker and England captain Kane who helped him settle when he joined up with his international team-mates.“All the boys have been so good with me from the first minute I came in,” Saka said in his first England news conference.“Harry Kane put his arm around me, he spoke to me and asked me how I was. For him to do that, it helped me settle in much quicker and made me feel comfortable to be myself around everyone.“That helps me not just off the pitch but also on the pitch too, because I feel like I can be myself, express myself and play with the confidence that I play with back at my club.” Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has suffered a potentially serious injury during England training.The FA has yet to comment on the incident, which occurred during Wednesday morning’s session, but Gomez is understood to be receiving treatment, while the extent of the injury is being assessed. England manager Gareth Southgate is scheduled to address the media on Wednesday evening.- Advertisement – Andy Robertson believes Liverpool’s point at Manchester City on Sunday has left them well placed amid this season’s unrelenting schedule.The champions lost top spot in the Premier League over the course of the weekend but were satisfied to leave the Etihad Stadium with a 1-1 draw and Robertson feels they are doing well to be third in the circumstances.“We are always hungry for more but we have to be happy,” he told liverpoolfc.com.“I think when we started getting some injuries and lost a couple of players with Covid-19, everyone expected the wheels to fall off.“But we’ve managed to steady the ship a little bit and pick up some great results.

States to share $100 million for pandemic planning

first_imgJan 12, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – The federal government today announced the release of $100 million appropriated by Congress recently to help states prepare for a potential influenza pandemic.The money is the first installment of $350 million included in the $3.8 billion emergency appropriation for pandemic preparedness that Congress passed in late December, said Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Mike Leavitt.Leavitt has been stressing the message that state and local governments must take the lead in dealing with a pandemic at ground level, and he did so again in announcing the funding. “Pandemics happen globally but must be managed at the state and local level, and these funds will help communities meet that responsibility,” he said in a news release.The $100 million will be divided among the 50 states, the District of Columbia, New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles County, and the seven US territories. Each state will get $500,000 plus an additional amount based on population.The state shares range from $622,102 for Wyoming to about $6.7 million for California, according to the HHS release.”The remaining $250 million from the appropriation will be awarded later this year in accord with guidance that will require progress and performance,” HHS said.The agency said states and cities will use the money to step up their planning and to conduct drills to test the plans. “The focus is on practical, community-based procedures that could prevent or delay the spread of pandemic influenza, and help to reduce the burden of illness communities would contend with during an outbreak,” the statement said.Leavitt made the announcement today at pandemic planning “summit” meetings in Vermont and West Virginia. The meetings are part of a series of forums that are expected to be held in every state over the next few months.The recent appropriation came in response to President Bush’s request on Nov 1 for $7.1 billion for pandemic preparedness. That included $100 million for state and local preparedness, an amount that some public health organizations criticized as too small.The pandemic planning money is in addition to federal funds to help state and local governments prepare for bioterrorism and other public health emergencies. For fiscal year 2006, Congress recently appropriated about $824 million for that purpose, according to the “CSTE Washington Report” of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists.See also:Jan 12 HHS news releaseDec 28, 2005, CIDRAP News story “Pandemic funding, liability shield clear Congress”last_img read more

SWINE FLU BREAKING NEWS: Cases top 2,000, potential global burden, farm residents test negative, USAID efforts, vaccine contract

first_imgMay 7, 2009The global illness count for the novel H1N1 swine influenza climbed to 2,099 confirmed cases with 44 deaths in 23 countries early today, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported. That included 1,112 cases and 42 deaths in Mexico and yesterday’s US count of 642 cases and 2 deaths. Spain reported 73 cases and the United Kingdom 28. [WHO update 19]The US swine flu case count jumped to 896 cases in 41 states this morning, an increase of 254 cases since yesterday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported. The number of affected states was the same as yesterday (41), and the death toll remained at 2. [CDC swine flu page]If the swine flu epidemic evolves into a full-scale pandemic, the record of past pandemics suggests it would be reasonable to estimate that perhaps as many as a third of the world’s population could become infected, Dr. Keiji Fukuda of the WHO said at a press briefing today. But he said he was not making a prediction, only noting the historical pattern. “We live in a different world” today, and no one knows what will happen, he added. Fukuda said he wanted to explain the seriousness of the threat because the WHO has been getting questions about why it is paying so much attention to the virus.Health officials in Canada yesterday said recently sick people who live on a farm where pigs were infected with the swine flu virus tested negative for the virus, including the carpenter who worked near the pigs when he was sick after traveling to Mexico, the Canadian Press (CP) reported. However, David Butler-Jones, MD, Canada’s chief public health officer, told the CP that “sampling” issues might have affected the test results and antibody tests will be conducted to confirm whether the farm residents were infected with the new virus.Yesterday in testimony before a House foreign affairs subcommittee, Dennis Carroll of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) detailed US efforts to help global agencies respond to the swine flu epidemic. USAID has provided $5 million to help the WHO and the Pan American Health Organization beef up detection and control efforts in Mexico, sent 100,000 sets of personal protective equipment to surveillance workers and first responders in Mexico, and provided support for swine surveillance in Mexico and Central America. Carroll told legislators that USAID has also established its own H1N1 task force and has activated a response team to address the humanitarian needs of 1 billion people in developing countries. [May 6 USAID statement]Two infectious disease experts are warning people against intentionally getting infected with the swine flu as a hedge against getting sick with a potentially more lethal strain of the virus in the months ahead, the Associated Press (AP) reported today. William Schaffner, MD, a flu immunization expert at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, told the AP that an individual’s response to a particular flu virus is unpredictable and could involve life-threatening complications. He also said infected people can unintentionally spread the virus to more vulnerable populations. [May 7 AP story]Vical Inc., a San Diego vaccine company, announced yesterday that it signed an agreement with the US Navy Medical Research Center to speed the development of a DNA-based vaccine against the swine flu virus. The vaccine would contain Vaxfectin, the company’s proprietary adjuvant, which it has used in its DNA vaccine against the H5N1 avian influenza virus. The company did not disclose how much money the agreement involves. [May 6 Vical press release]last_img read more

Phenomenal Timelapse video as an example of how promotional films of tourist destinations should be shot

first_imgVideo is a “must have” tool today when we talk about tourism promotion.But in order to get virality and to stand out from the mass of promotional tourist videos, it is necessary to invest in quality and professional production, which of course costs, but also gives results. With the mass use of drones, new technologies such as 4k video resolution, video in tourism is definitely the main bait for telling a story and creating a motive for coming.And how to stand out from the crowd and tell a story through a video that invites you to visit a tourist destination, demonstrated a young Ukrainian photographer Kirill Neiezhmakov with a new phenomenal timelaps video that takes us through an amazing walk through Rome.In less than three minutes through the “Eternal City” of the most famous sights, its historical past and picturesque areas where you will want to head on arrival when it’s time to relax. Rome is synonymous with history, writes Neezijakov and adds “Where else can you walk in the same footsteps as the emperors, St. Peter, the popes, Michelangelo, Dante, and Raphael, to name a few? The real charm of Rome is that you can easily walk to most of the places from the video”, Said Neiezhmakov.Want to visit Rome after this video and experience live the largest open-air museum in Europe?However, we also have our strong strengths when we talk about time laps video and professional photography, and that is certainly the phenomenal duo Marko Romulić and Dražen Stojčić who are the authors of some of the most famous Croatian timelapse films. After many phenomenal videos, they have been trying for years to catch the spring fog that emerges from the Mirna Valley in Motovun, and it only appears when special weather conditions set in. After many unsuccessful trips and catching the morning fog around the Motovun hill, and perseverance is always rewarded, finally came the day when the magic fog was caught through the lens of Marija and Dražen.Misty Motovun – timelapse movie from Romulic & Stojcic on Vimeo.Always use professional services and watch the quality, not how to go as little as possible and record video with a mobile phone, because in the end the only thing that matters is the final product and the message. Of course, after shooting the video, it is necessary to invest in promoting it so that as many people as possible can see it, because we can have the best product in the world, but if no one knows about it, everything falls into the water.Of course, there are always those who offer services much cheaper…Various professionals and creatives show their skills, and it is up to tourist destinations to see and use the opportunity to promote their tourist destination as well as possible. It is also their main job and they are paid for it. Directors of tourist boards from all over Croatia, you are on the move. Opportunities are there, it’s up to you to take advantage of them, that’s your obligation, isn’t it?Btw, next week, from 13 to 15 September, the International Tourist Film Festival will be held in Zagreb, Zagreb Tourfilm Festival, where 175 tourist films from 76 countries will compete. It will be interesting to see how other countries are branded and what messages they send.Related news:THE IMPORTANCE OF QUALITY PROMOTIONAL VIDEO IN TOURISMOVER 170 TOURIST FILMS IN COMPETITION AT ZAGREB TOURFILM FESTIVALWATCH THE PHENOMENAL TEASER OF SARAJEVO VIDEO GUIDElast_img read more

He said that despite the fact that it would take another two years to address the shortage of toilets, the “toilet revolution” in the country has made steady progress over the past four years with the construction and renovation of 35 tourist toilets by the end of last year.
