Jose Mourinho talks future plans after turning 57

first_img Loading… Spurs fans will be hoping for more of the same in North London, as the Lilywhites have been without a trophy since their League Cup win in 2008. During an interview with Fox Sports Brasil’s Expediente Futebol show, Mourinho revealed that people think he is tired but he has many years left in him as a manager. He even responded to whether he would manage Brasil one day. On the latter, he said: “In football, I think you can never say: ‘I will never drink this water’. You never know what’s going to happen. “I left Portugal in 2004 and haven’t gone back yet. There are those who expect me to return to train the Portuguese team one day, and I can’t even say yes or no. Mourinho managed two seasons at Porto, followed by four at Chelsea, two at Inter Milan, three at Real Madrid, three more at Chelsea, and three at Manchester United (Wikipedia). However, in that time, the Portuguese head coach has won silverware wherever he has gone, including Champions Leagues, league titles, and cups.Advertisement Jose Mourinho has now been the Tottenham head coach for almost five months, as he looks to progress from the Pochettino era to a new trophy-winning period. The Special One still has more than three years remaining on his current Spurs deal, although he has only ever managed four seasons in charge of a club once in his career.center_img Read Also: UEFA urges leagues to complete suspended football seasons“One thing I say is, I’m 57 years old, and that’s not enough for a coach.

At that moment it is difficult to say yes, but it is also impossible to say no [to managing in Brazil].”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content10 Hyper-Realistic 3D Street Art By OdeithWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?8 Things That Will Happen If An Asteroid Hits Earth10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoPretty Awesome Shows That Just Got Canceled10 Of The Best Places Around The World To Go StargazingYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime11 Theories Why We Haven’t Met Any Aliens YetThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

first_imgReese Tambellini of Nelson and Bradley Ross of Trail also scored for Kootenay.Curt Doyle of Nelson was solid between the pipes for Kootenay.“We deserved a better outcome on Sunday,” Jones said.“I was proud of the kids.”Saturday, Valley West held period leads of 3-0 and 5-0 before coasting to the win.Ben Evanish scored three times to lead the Hawks.“It was a total tem struggle on Saturday from the goalies to defencemen to the forwards,” Jones admits.Kootenay, consisting of players from Castlegar, Cranbrook, Trail, Nakusp, Nelson, Vernon, Vanderhoof and Vancouver, is back on the road again, heading Saturday to Kelowna to meet the fourth-place Okanagan Rockets in the first game of a weekend series.Jones is hopeful the Ice players can feed off of Sunday’s strong play.“If continue Sunday’s efforts (this weekend) we should be able to come away with points.”Kootenay is currently tenth in the 11-team league, with a record of 1-6-1.Next home game for the Ice is October 31 when Cariboo Cougars visit the NDCC Arena.

16 Days of Activism

first_imgAct Against Abuse – 16 Days of Activism Around the country, South Africans are being called on to combat violence against women and children. For the 10th year, SA is taking part in the global 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women campaign, which runs from 25 November (International Day of No Violence against Women) through to International Human Rights Day on 10 December.South Africa is still home to high levels of violence against its women and children, despite a world-renowned Constitution and a legislative overhaul that safeguards women’s and children’s rights.The government, business, civil society organisations, state-owned enterprises, faith-based organisations and the media are all participating in the drive to increase awareness of the negative impact of violence and abuse on women and children.The campaign also aims to:Challenge the perpetrators of violence to change their behaviour.Involve men and boys in helping to eradicate violence.Provide survivors with information about services and organisations that can help lessen the impact of violence on their lives.Extend its reach beyond South Africa’s borders.South Africans are urged to support the campaign by wearing a white ribbon during the 16-day period to symbolise their commitment to “never commit or condone violence against women or children, and to speak out about violence where they see it.”People can also pledge their support to the campaign by signing the 16 Days Postcard and e-mailing it or posting it free of charge at any post office. Each card signed and collected will raise R1 for the campaign. E-cards can be selected, customised and sent from here, while postcards can be collected at any post office or multi-purpose community centre.South Africans can also help by sending an SMS with the words “16 Days” to 31616. Each SMS will raise a further R10 for the campaign.All money raised will be forwarded to the Foundation for Human Rights, which will channel it to organisations that support survivors of violence and abuse.Other ways of supporting the campaign:Donate money to organisations working to end violence against women by making a contribution to the Foundation for Human RightsCheck out the calendar and attend a 16 Days event.Check out the directory of helping organisations and volunteer some of your time and energy.Join the online Cyber Dialogues around the campaign.Rhetoric and realitySouth Africa, according to non-governmental organisation Gender Links, needs to close the gap between the “rhetoric of gender equality” and the “reality on the ground”.Gender Links says the country has made impressive strides in recognising the roles and rights of women and children.The Constitution recognises gender equality as the cornerstone of South Africa’s democracy, and new legislation – such as the Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act and the Domestic Violence Act – have been lauded for enforcing the rights of women.But more needs to be done. “Changing laws can be swift,” says Gender Links. “Giving them effect, and changing the mindsets that often render them ineffective, is a much more demanding task.”last_img read more
