Neymar was Real Madrid president’s “dream signing”

first_img He claims that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, well known for his love of making a splash in the transfer market, had described the PSG winger as his “dream signing” just one year ago. As a former Barcelona star, and one who rather embarrassed the Catalan club by leaving so suddenly in the summer of 2017, bringing him as a trophy – and a brilliant player – to the Bernabeu has huge appeal to anyone in charge of Real Madrid.Advertisement Read Also: UEFA endorse Spanish FA proposal for European spots It’s a complicated situation – Neymar’s situation in Paris is now perhaps more comfortable than it was a year ago. Meanwhile his teammate Kylian Mbappe, possibly the only bigger star than the Brazilian in world football not named Lionel Messi, seems to be a potential target for Madrid now. Maybe, after all that, Neymar will end up back in Barcelona after all, and Perez’s dream will never come to fruition.

Last year I was with him, in May, in his office, and he told me that he still dreamed of signing him.” Loading… center_img Real Madrid and Barcelona never miss a chance to get one over on one another, both on and off the pitch.

Simmons keen to boost Ireland

first_img A biennial one day international against England and occasional visits from those touring their neighbours have for some time constituted Ireland’s glass ceiling. But with a sympathetic ear now in charge of the West Indies, the prospect of a Caribbean tour is now alive. “I’m sure that was spoken about in the negotiations about me leaving Ireland,” said Simmons. “I’m sure that will happen soon. I will always push for that. “I’d have no problem with making that happen at all. I’ll do everything I can to keep things going there, because they need it. “All the full members need to back Ireland.” Trinidad-born Phil Simmons worked wonders with the boys in Green during nearly eight years as head coach, establishing them as the dominant force in associate cricket and helping to build a compelling case for full member status. But despite competitive showings on the world stage, including unforgettable victories over the England, Pakistan and the Windies, they have struggled for regular games against the big nations.

Governor DeSantis Touts New Education Standards, as Unemployment Decreases

first_imgFlorida Governor Ron DeSantis announced new education standards last week, a year after vowing to eliminate the remainder of the controversial Common Core standards.“The new plan is done. It is going through the final editing process,” the governor said during a news conference in Naples.He did not offer details about the new plan, which will be called the BEST Standards. However, according to a summary document released by the Florida Department of Education, the standards include changes to the way in which students will learn math and American history moving forward. It also reduces the amount of testing.In addition, the standards will eliminate “crazy math” that DeSantis says is currently an obstacle for parents who wanted to help students with homework. Civics will be “embedded” into language-arts lessons at all grade levels, and the document says a “civics book list” will be used across all grades.“I wanted to make sure we had a renewed emphasis on American civics and understanding the principles that make America great,” DeSantis added.The Common Core standards, which were developed by officials in 48 states, have been criticized by Republican voters.Six years ago, the State Board of Education adopted the “Florida Standards,” which involved making changes to Common Core.DeSantis’ BEST Standards, which stands for Benchmark for Excellent Student Thinking, still needs approval from the State Board of Education. When it is adopted, the language-arts curriculum is expected to be updated for the 2021-2022 year, while the math curriculum would be updated for the 2022-2023 year, according to the Department of Education.Meanwhile, DeSantis also announced on Friday that the Sunshine State’s unemployment rate is as at a record low, decreasing to 3 percent in December.In addition, 220,000 Floridians have entered the workforce over the past year, according to a news release from the governor’s office.I’m proud to share that in December 2019, Florida’s unemployment rate dropped to 3% – the lowest in our history. Florida remains the best state in the nation to find a job and start or grow a business. Details here – https://t.co/mzCvvKGG77— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) January 24, 2020 The West Palm Beach area’s unemployment rate is even lower, at 2.7 percent.About 198,200 private-sector jobs were created in the state over the year, according to the governor’s office. The state’s annual private-sector job growth rate of 2.5 percent also continues to exceed the national average at 1.5 percent.last_img read more
