Puyol sends a stern warning to Ousmane Dembele

Puyol sends a stern warning to Ousmane Dembele

first_imgRight in the middle of the whole controversy with Ousmane Dembele at Barcelona, club legend Carles Puyol wanted to send the French winger a message.The current situation between FC Barcelona and Ousmane Dembele is quite complicated, the club has already expressed that they may want to sell him but Carles Puyol made one final effort to turn him around.The problems that the ‘Mosquito’ is having right now are related with a lack of discipline that is related to his young age, he’s been getting advice from all his teammates and even from his National Team manager.But perhaps getting a warning from Puyol himself might be the words that can make him realize where he is, not every player has the privilege of playing for FC Barcelona in their careers and almost nobody gets a direct scalding from Carles Puyol himself.If you are too young to remember, let us tell you that you missed out on arguably the most disciplined FC Barcelona player of all time, he is also among the most respected figures of the institution and he even has the admiration of players who were his rivals throughout his career.Puyol was part of a charity paddle tournament where he was seen playing alongside his friend Gerard Pique, one of Barcelona’s skippers today.🗣 Carles Puyol: “I don’t know how the dressing room works nowadays but it’s clear that everyone must help Dembélé for the common good. Sometimes, when you’re young, you don’t realize what you have, where you are, and you let things escape from your grasp.”— FC Barcelona Fl 🏆 (@FCBarcelonaFl) November 14, 2018When he attended the press after the event, members of the media wanted to know what he thought about Ousmane Dembele’s current situation and what the French player needed to do in order to reverse it.“Dembele is young, I’m not in the dressing room and I don’t know the day to day,” he said to Marca reporters.“The team have to help him because it’s not easy to adapt to the philosophy of Barcelona where everything is very different.”“Here he’s arrived late to training and he must learn that isn’t good enough.”He has good teachers who will help him, but it will depend on his attitude.”“It’s important that he reflects and thinks about things, because when you’re young you don’t realize what you are letting go.”“In the management of a dressing room there are problems every day because there are many egos in there,” he added.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.“We all believe that we are the best and we must play, and the job for the coach to choose.”“The important thing then is the attitude of each player, because being ambitious is fine, but respecting the group is always above that.”“I think he’s amenable and if he wants to improve and learn, he is in the best place.”But it depends on him.”Carles Puyol (Barcelona legend): “Dembélé must reflect and think about where he is.” [via md] pic.twitter.com/GxyTs4UzLy— Barça Centre (@barcacentre) November 14, 2018Puyol was also questioned about Gerard Pique’s advice to the French youngster, the Catalan player told Dembele that he needed to start living football 24/7 and Carles’ reaction was funny as he recalled that Pique was also quite a troublemaker back in the day.However, the former Barça skipper also remembered that Gerard is the one who brought his professional life in Barcelona a little bit of joy due to his lively personality.“It’s great that Gerard finally understood it,” joked Puyol.“It’s true that as a professional, you have to live football 24/7, if he says it it’s because it must be true.”“But in all seriousness, I’ve always said that Gerard’s arrival has been very important to me because I really did live football 24/7 and you always have to leave a little time to enjoy life.”“You have to find the moments to have a good time, which is something that Gerard taught me.”“But it is also true that playing at the highest level is always very demanding and you have to stay focused in order to maintain the same level of performance,” he concluded.What do you think about Carles Puyol’s advice to Ousmane Dembele?

Replacement Commissioners from Canada UK unable to quell TCI crime draws comment

first_img#MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Turks and Caicos, June 26th 2017 – Providenciales –   A Police Commissioner from Canada could not do it.  A Police Commissioner from the UK cannot do it and that must mean, says former Deputy Commissioner of Police, Hubert Hughes, too much was expected of former Commissioner Edward Hall and his team when it was there turn at the helm.  In a detailed comment to Magnetic Media, Hughes who returned to his home of Anguilla after serving many years as second in command of the TCI Police Force said what is happening now is unfortunate and disappointing but points to a recurring problem of limited resources which he believes was exacerbated by top cops who are gravely unfamiliar with the lay of the land. “I was once told by a former British senior police officer that he cannot come to Turks and Caicos Island and tell the local police how to police the Turks and Caicos Islands because of his lack of local knowledge. In addition one of them admitted to me that the first time he saw a kilo of cocaine is when he came to TCI in charge of the criminal investigation drug squad. Policing an archipelago like Turks and Caicos  requires a Command team with good local knowledge of the environment, national culture and subcultures of the different island and families, and good human investigation management training and skills . It calls for a great deal of knowledge on how to police the air, land and sea in order to control gun crime in particular.”Hughes adds that no information to the Police about crime simply means that something is lacking in the relationship between public and police; he said key is mutual respect. “Respect will lead to shared values to improve public confidence in the force. Shared values will lead to trust. Without trust no one will speak to the police in confidence. In order to prevent and detect crime the level of trust within the ranks of the force must be high as well. I’m not convinced if that is the case within the RTCIPF at the moment.”  The former DCP was not only offering constructive criticism, he offered a way forward and penned, “My approach to such a situation would be to divide crimes in the following four categories: exploitive crimes, mutualistic crimes, competitive crimes and individual crimes.”Hughes explained that exploitive crimes, like the shooting of Kevin Newman of Alabama on Friday, should get the most resources, while individualistic crimes, like having a joint, should get the least amount of attention.   Related Items:#magneticmedianews, 3 Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

We need the same level of concentration that we had in Leipzig!” he told the club’s official website.“While it’s true that Hannover lost their last match, I’ve seen a few games of theirs in which they’ve played really well.”“For example, they drew 1-1 in Freiburg and had far more goal-scoring opportunities than their opponents,” he explained.“This was against a Freiburg side that had just come off the back of 3-0 and 2-0 wins against Leipzig and Gladbach respectively. That tells you all you need to know.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R.

He’s been running during the week – the ball hasn’t been involved just yet, but he’s done a few sprints,” the manager said about Zagadou.“It’s a good situation which we’re really happy with. He’ll get there step by step, but Saturday will come too soon.”And the coach took the opportunity to update about injured Marco Reus.“He’s trained all week. He’s doing well.
