Gladiators in the Kingdom of León

first_img“Bernardo; Godoy, Maño, Paredes; Piñán, Roldán; Ovalle, Villafañe, Marianín, Larrauri and Zuazaga”. For years, many years, that was the eleven of the Cultural that in Leon was recited As a saint. 43 passed, very cold and the fiercest of fears, bordering the disappearance, so that in the streets of the city another eleven could be heard loud, that of Rubén de la Barrera, another Cultu, that of Aspire, another striker, Gallar. It was three seasons ago. It lasted little. The following year, decline. The past, hit, do not get into the playoff promotion. This one, a less colorful Cultural than Rubén’s but more effective, the second best ever in Second B. Tonight a mirror is waiting for Cholo in the Kingdom. Aira picks it up. And it can be a trap. Its Cultural is a well-armed team, to wait and find the spaces, the second moves. A very Simeone team, well wrapped in defense and that turns the sock around to get on with speed in the attack. Second in group 2, his true Champions is fighting for leadership, the straightest path to Second. Atlético arrives before his two most important matches of the second round, against the third, Bilbao Athletic, and the first, Logroñés, this Sunday and the next. Aira will rotate, as he has been doing in the Cup. Go ahead Sergio Benito, will be saved to your two bullets for later, Dioni and Kawaya. No casualties last night I expected the transfer of Araujo, former athletic quarry. I could play All his men are gladiators.A cold but clear night yesterday received the Atleti in Leon. The Cholo was left to Oblak and Morata, but he traveled with everything else. In your plan, two kids, Manu Sánchez and Camello, goal for Adam, ownership for Beautiful, opportunity for Llorente and a 4-3-3 with João Félix and Vitolo. He arrives injured from Eibar, wanting to Cup but warned by Barça and his suffering against Ibiza. If you want to conquer the Kingdom, only one thing is worth: looking in the mirror of Aira, becoming gladiators again. In the new Cup you play without a net.last_img read more

Raw Talent, Meet The Filmmaker Behind Some Of LIB’s Hottest Music Videos

first_imgThere’s a lot of exciting gazes at some of the most loved and watched Liberian music videos being played around the world. Little does anyone know is that the producer behind the shots and editing has been putting in a lot of hard work for five years.Motion picture producer DJ Khalil, also known as Khalil Fofana, has made quite a stir in the recent year with dazzling music videos and documentary production.This young and focused producer has been constructing images such as music videos, commercials, documentaries, comedy movies and reveals that he’s planning to do a big motion picture.“Joe Baby (aka Joseph Weah) and I are working on something, but can’t say what that is right now,” he says.In case his name doesn’t ring a bell instantly, Khalil is known for producing awarded and nominated video’s like “So Monrovia”, “Pot Boiling” and quite recently Joel ft Cast Money video “Slow Wind” which was released earlier this week.“Slow Wind video will make people to believe in entertainment. I also recently  produced Famous Boo’s “Me And My Baby” video and right now the video is taking over Liberia, plenty comments, and people are asking if it was really done in Liberia. And when they’re told, they get surprised and say Liberia is really coming up,” he furthered.For Khalil, producing means shooting the actual film, being able to edit and package it for immediate release.“I’m a DOP (I operate on camera) and also an editor; I shoot and edit. The way I learned it was funny to me, I learned from my oldest brother who I was with for long, Ush”Khalil once worked alongside Mad Media’s Alexander “Ush” Wiaplah, and according to Khalil, he feels he was taught everything he knows professionally by watching “Ush” work.“I learned a lot from him. He taught me a lot while I watched him work, and that’s how I started to learn how to operate on camera, edit and started doing small until I reached the place where I am right now. I didn’t go to film school; people don’t believe that I never went to school. Most people ask me how I learned this job, ask me for documents but I’m planning to go to school because  I know if I go to school, I’ll be able to do more than what I’m doing now.” Khalil has worked with big names such as Kanvee Gaines Adams for whom he shot four videos; J Freeze, “Balling Night”; and Ragga E-man, “Bad Man Ting”.“I won’t be able to name all of the videos names I did for Kanvee, but I did 4. Her video was able to be played outside Liberia.  People liked it but didn’t know who did the video, and they only heard my name. As for J Freeze’s video, after doing it, in one day’s time more than 50 watched it and liked it.Meanwhile, Khalil has started producing videos for T-Bund records and claims to have shot and edited over 8 videos in less than three weeks.“Filmmaking is skill, you have to have skill to be able to operate on camera and create something and make it look good. Your eye should be able to tell you if it’s good or not. Right now I’ve got artists coming for me to do their videos, and I hope in the next six months I’ll have done more.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Remarks at Investiture Ceremony for Ambassador Attilio Pacifici

first_imgH. E. Excellency Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, President of the Republic of Liberia; the honoree, outgoing Ambassador of the European Union Delegation to LiberiaH. E. Attilio Pacifici; the Leadership and Members of the Legislature here present; the Chief Justice and Members of the Judiciary; Members of the Cabinet; Members of the Diplomatic Corps and our Development Partners; Members of Civil Society; Members of the Press; Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen:I would first like to thank you, Madam President, for holding this investiture ceremony for one whose outstanding service to Liberia is undoubted and unforgettable.I first met Ambassador Pacifici in 2009, early during my tenure as Minister of Planning & Economic Affairs. He had just arrived in Liberia, to meet a National Authorizing Office that fell short of the standard of a full Embassy in terms of staffing and capacity. At that time, our country’s engagements with the European Commission were limited because we did not have a full EU Delegation in Liberia; and more importantly, the EU Delegation in Cote D’Ivoire was performing the duties of the National Authorizing Officer for Liberia, in managing the European Development Fund allocation for our country because our NAO powers had been revoked during the war. We met, and decided that our first goal as counterparts was to restore country ownership of EU development interventions, so that Liberia could optimally benefit from EU’s support to our national recovery and development agenda. Our first milestone was the signing of a Financing Agreement that would inject EUR 20 million into our National Budget as grant for macroeconomic stability. This was a tremendous display of support from the EU, as well as a demonstration of their confidence in Liberia’s ability to efficiently and transparently absorb development assistance into our country systems. Ever since then, through his advocacy and commitment to Liberia, we have witnessed a gradual increase in direct budget support amounting to EUR 40 million and EUR 35 million in budget support for the health sector from the European Union.This EUR 75 million constitutes support provided through our budget, and is only part of the total EUR 161 million we have received through the 10th EDF as support to the health, education, agriculture, infrastructure, fisheries and forestry sectors; and to capacity building for the General Auditing Commission and the Bureau of Customs and Excise.In early 2013, we signed the Voluntary Partnership Agreement signed between with the EU whereby Liberia can export its forestry materials to EU at no cost. This agreement spans a six year period, from this year 2014 to 2020, during which we expect substantial revenue and job creation as we gain access to international markets for our natural resources.With Amb. Pacifici’s leadership, we are assured of the strong continuity of this level of support from the EU, as substantive investments were made in terms of financial and technical support to build the capacity of the NAO which manages the EDF and ensures transparency, mutual accountability and optimal allocation toward viable, impactful projects and programs. Having supported us in building a credible and competent NAO, we can now look forward to the next envelope of EU support in the amount of EUR 279 million, which constitutes the 11th EDF, set for implementation from early next year up to 2020. This represents a 73 percent increase in the EDF allocation for Liberia.The significance of this support lies not only in the substantial amount of funds provided solely as grant, but also the EU’s exemplary commitment to pioneer in implementation of the New Deal on Development Assistance wherein bilateral and multilateral partners have committed themselves to channeling their support through country systems.This is part of  Amb. Pacifici’s legacy in Liberia.Another immensely important part of his legacy is the swiftness and impact of the EU’s support to Liberia at a time when we needed all of our friends the most – when the Ebola Virus invaded our country. Ambassador Pacifici responded quickly by advocating strongly with the EU Headquarters in Brussels for increased budget support for Liberia. As a result, we have received more than US $35 million as grant directly into our budget from the European Union, since the beginning of the crisis.And finally, a happier memento by which we can all remember him lies in the construction of a permanent Office of the National Authorizing Officer, located on the Executive Mansion Grounds just a stone’s throw away from here, totally financed by a grant from the European Development Fund. That building was dedicated just two days ago.Ladies and gentlemen, Ambassador Pacifici was not only a partner, but he is a friend, a dependable friend and a true advocate for Liberia. And, as he leaves, I know that he will take us with him, continuing to advocate for and support us from afar. And as we stay behind, we remain committed to ensuring that his hard work and dedication pay optimal dividends and we build upon his work in Liberia.Ambassador, we wish you and your family every possible success as you move on to your next assignment.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Reliving the dream with Hull legend Windass

first_imgBorn in Hull on April Fool’s Day in 1969, Dean’s parents John and Doreen tell him that he started kicking a football from the tender age of two. So it was a no brainer what he wanted to do when he grew up and the rest as they say, is history.An perfect specimen of the old school footballer if there was one, Windass walked through his history with SportPesa News on Thursday evening having been part of the advance team from Hull who jetted into the country on Tuesday ahead of the Tigers’ monumental match in Kenya this weekend.Record SportPesa Premier League (SPL) champions, Gor Mahia FC, will take on Hull City at the Kasarani Stadium on Sunday at 3pm local time (+3GMT) in an encounter that best encapsulates his football career; staggering.As a young boy, Windass was a Hull supporter like many other lads that call the English city and unitary authority that is home to over 260,000 inhabitants founded in the 12th century home and regularly attended matches at the Boothferry Stadium in support of the Tigers.“When I was two years old, my parents say I used to kick around a football in the garden.“Sometimes people ask how do you become a footballer, well sometimes you’re just born with the talent and I consider myself very fortunate,” the 49-year old former striker said.“Growing up a Hull fan as a kid was incredible. I would go watch the games with my dad from when I was six years old and from then I had a dream to play football, to play for Hull,” he added.Windass’ journey to becoming one of the best players to ever grace the pitch for his home town team that now sits in the second-tier of English football, the Championship was not always easy.Dean Windass in his prime, celebrating scoring for Hull City FC in an English Championships match in 1999. PHOTO/Courtesy/AgenciesTo make it in the professional ranks in a country that rates among the best paying nation for football talent takes loads of guts, something Windass admits he had plenty in supply.“As a footballer, it’s not just about playing. Everything you do off the field matters as well.“You have to be mentally strong and if you are and committed then you will have a great career. If you’re weak then you just fall by the wayside. So I’m fortunate that I was a strong character,” Windass advised.He started his career as a trainee for Hull until he was released by the Tigers and before he got a shove in the right direction, Windass played non-league football and did some handiwork until 1991 when he was brought back to Hull by coach Terry Dolan.Throughout his entire playing career during different spells with his home club, he scored 82 goals in 205 matches for the Tigers, making him the club’s fifth all-time top scorer.Without a doubt, the goal that will forever be the talk of the town is his superbly struck volley in the 38th minute of the 2008 Football League Championship Play-off Final against Bristol City FC.Seasoned Frazier Campbell, who is part of the travelling team coming to play Gor, picked Dean out with a lovely pass and the goal that followed was a thing of absolute beauty.As he ran with both his hands in the air in jubilant celebration, neither he nor the thousands of Hull fans watching knew that would be the goal to punch their ticket into English top flight for the first time in the club’s history.A jaw-dropping achievement considering the Tigers were founded in 1904 and Windass’ goal brought an end to 112 years of waiting to dine at the top table of the game in a country credited with inventing football.Professional football“All the hard work you put in throughout your career all comes down to one defining moment that changes your life.“As soon as Frazier picked me out with the pass, I had to make one decision and I am grateful that it was the right one,” Dean reminisced.“It was obviously a way more special moment for me because I’m from Hull. I was born and raised there and the fans were in harmony with me, it was a very special day.Throughout his 21-year professional career, Dean celebrated two promotions playing for numerous clubs both in England and Scotland.He played with dozens of huge names in football and played against even bigger ones.The now Hull Club Ambassador admits that the toughest defender he ever had to go up against was Arsenal FC’s former captain, Tony Adams.“Tony was a great defender. It was always a challenge to play against him whenever I did.“That’s the thing about playing in the Premier League, you don’t find bad players. There’s only the best of the best,” he added.The father of two became Hull’s oldest –ever scorer after his last Premier League goal at the age of 39.Windass has two sons, Josh (24) and Jordan (19) who he had with ex-wife, Helen, whom he married on July 31, 1993. She was a police officer from Hull.Josh followed in his father’s footsteps and plays professional football for giants Glasgow Rangers in Scotland.He has scored 12 goals in 53 appearances for the club and looks as though he will go on to become an amazing player just as his mentor.“Josh is doing very well at the minute and that gives me joy. I’m very proud of both my kids, they’re great,” he said with a smile on his face.Windass’ career featured stints at Aberdeen, Oxford United FC, Bradford City FC, Middlesbrough FC, Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday and Oldham Athletic FC.At Bradford, fans of European giants, Liverpool FC, who will play Spanish aristocrats, Real Madrid CF in the final of the UEFA Champions League later this month, will not forget the stocky striker, who maintains his shape and appetite to kick a football despite retiring the game.The date, May 14, 2000, the last day of the Barclaycard Premier League (as the EPL was known then) and Bradford, under Paul Jewell, needed to beat the Merseyside titans to survive relegation.That offered Windass the perfect moment to flirt with football destiny, catapulting hime from a journeyman forward into legendary status when he helped them avoid the drop miraculously when they beat Liverpool 1-0 through a David Wetherall header.He forced then Liverpool keeper, Sander Westerveld to a smart save in the dying embers of the match but there was no need for any further goals as he completed the season as Bradford’s top scorer with 10, in staging one of the most memorable escape acts in Premier League history.Windass had endeared to Bradford supporters having been signed by Jewell in March 1999 when he refused to go on holiday to be fit for their Premier League campaign having helped them finish second in the first division to earn promotion.In the far removed world of the rich and pampered modern day Premier League stars, Windass’ work ethic and commitment to the cause is part of what has made him a living legend and model professional in a country where football is a national staple.What’s even more compelling is that he was never relegated as a player.“All clubs I played for felt like home for me and I’m very grateful that the fans liked me. Initially it was hard to leave Hull for the first time in my life when was Josh was two years old,” he begun.“I had to go to Aberdeen and start a new life, meet new people and make new friends. It all turned out great and I can only look back at it and smile because it was successful.“I never got relegated as a player as well and for that fact I feel very fortunate,” the humble 5ft 10in Hull legend said.Windass professes the greatest ever English player to grace the Premier League is Paul Gascoigne and rejoices in the fact that he got the chance to play against him, with the two eventually developing a remarkable bond as friends.Five asideHull City FC legend, Dean Windass enjoys a kick about in Nairobi after arriving in Kenya as part of the Tigers party ahead of their match against Gor Mahia FC on Sunday, May 13, 2018. PHOTO/SPNWhen asked to name his greatest ever five-aside team, he scratched his head in deep thought for a bit before finally making up his mind.He names Arsenal great David Seaman in goal and just as is in his nature, the rest of the players are all attackers.Gascoigne of course, Nigerian sensation Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, Everton and Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney and the man himself, Windass complete his select side that on paper, would give any full team a run for their money.“Gazza was a character and he became a very good friend of mine. I mean, to watch him on DVD’s and then have the honor to play against him was surreal,” he underlined.Though not a pretty good cook, he occasionally whips up the culinary delight he knows and doubles up as his favorite food, Spaghetti Bolognaise.“As a footballer, all you eat is things like rice, beans, chicken and jacket potatoes.“Spag-bol (as he calls it), is one of the few things I can cook,” Windass chuckled.Windass has been the Tigers envoy for just under four years and he values the position so much so that he refers to it as a privilege.“It’s an honour to have the chance to represent the club as an ambassador and I’m grateful to the owners for giving me the opportunity to give back to my home club even after retirement.“Many don’t do what players used to do in the past, in terms of giving back to the community by going out to schools to present trophies and give certificates,” the retired forward who is as enthusiastic as his days when he terrorised defenses mused.“These days it’s coming back in clubs such as Swansea City FC, Everton FC and it’s very important,” Windass stated.He was part of an elite team of coaches from Hull who came to Kenya in November 2016 to offer his knowledge in selecting a SportPesa All Stars team that would eventually travel to the KCOM Stadium to play in a historic friendly.The Kenyans lost 2-1 but left England with much needed exposure.Gor’s Humphrey Mieno scored the consolation goal for the All Stars and will now have another go at the Hull players when Dylan Kerr’s charges take to the field on Sunday.“It’s great to be back in Kenya, it’s been a while. The last time I was here, I left knowing that I have left a big family behind.“Most of the Kenyan players still WhatsApp me to check up on me, which is absolutely amazing. The talent in this country is immense and I’m glad I got to see some pretty great players,” Windass offered.“I’m very excited for the game, though it’s been a long season for the lads I’m pretty sure they will put on a great show. I hope nobody gets injured and the game has a couple of goals.“It should be a great one!”The Hull playing unit arrive in the country on Friday evening and will hold a training session on Saturday before the big kick-off the following day at the spanking new pitch at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.There is plenty for Kenyan footballers to learn from the retired striker who despite hit the peak of his sport by sheer grit, humility, commitment, discipline and above all, the gift that continues to give even after earning a potful of money.-By Sportpesanews.com-0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Retired Hull City FC legend, Dean Windass, in a television interview with local television station, K24 on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 in the build up to the Tigers game with Gor Mahia FC that will be played at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on Sunday, May 13, 2016.

Homeboyz appoint Muyoti new head coach

first_img0Shares0000Nicholas Muyoti gives instructions to his Thika United team at half time during their match against AFC Leopards on September 20 2017. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUNAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 18 – Kenyan Premier League side Kakamega Homeboyz have appointed immediate former Nzoia Sugar boss Nicholas Muyoti as their new head coach and will be assisted by Peter Okidi, both taking charge on one-year contracts.“We had a shortlist of almost 20 coaches but for us Muyoti stood out and with our policy of giving youth a chance and him being a young coach, he fit the bill we required. I have utmost faith in him and Okidi that they will help the team improve,” Homeboyz chairman Cleophas Shimanyula stated. He added; “It is good for us to trust our local coaches because that’s the only way we will grow them. I have vowed never to appoint any foreign coach in my team after what happened before,” further stated Shimanyula.Homeboyz were without a coach after Fred Nkata was fired amidst match fixing claims with veteran forward Allan Wanga and goalkeeper David Juma taking charge on interim basis alongside technical director Eliud Omukuya.Kakamega Homeboyz Allan Wanga against Tusker FC’s Hashim Sempala. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYAWanga has literally led from the front, scoring five goals for the Kakamega based side including last weekend’s solo strike that handed them a slim 1-0 win over his former side Tusker FC.The forward will now resume his normal duties as the club’s lead striker as he looks to bag the KPL golden boot.“He is a good coach and has proved with the little time he has been at Nzoia and as a team we will give them the full support they need to see the team achieve its targets this season,” Wanga said of the appointment of Muyoti, a former Kenyan international.Muyoti however arrives in Kakamega after a lull period with Nzoia, three losses on the trot seeing them drop to 11th in the standings.He finds Homeboyz placed ninth and his first task will be against Sofapaka at the Bukhungu Stadium on Saturday. He has already faced Batoto ba Mungu with the 2009 champions beating his Nzoia side 1-0.Mathare’s James Situma (L) vies for the ball with Festus okiring of kakamega homeboyz during their kpl match at Moi kasarani on January 19,2019.ERICK BARASAShimanyula has meanwhile raised the bar for them and says the only term for the renewal of their contracts will be if they guide the team to finish in the top five.“We have good players. It was only the coaching that was the problem. Now with new people at the helm, we will do well. Minimum for them is a top five finish. We are in good form and we won away to Tusker, now we want to extend that to Sofapaka,” Shimanyula stated.Muyoti, a former Kenyan international has had a bit of experience in coaching having worked at AFC Leopards as both assistant and caretaker coach and took full time coaching jobs at Thika and Nzoia.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
