And I’m looking forward to seeing him grow with this team. “He will have to be one of the leaders, one of the main figures because he is just coming to his peak time as a footballer at 27. “I am really looking forward to working with him.” Pogba joined United in an £89m transfer from Juventus in 2016. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has laid the groundwork for Paul Pogba to sign a new contract at Manchester United. Pogba is out of contract next summer, but the club holds a 12-month option to extend that and they will do that as the worst-case scenario. The France midfielder has seen a dramatic turnaround in his fortunes since the Premier League restart. Pogba has been integral to United alongside Bruno Fernandes and he has repaid the faith Solskjaer had in him. “I’ve been speaking more or less every day with Paul,” admitted Solskajer last month. The Sun have reported that Pogba is close to finalising a huge new five-year deal at United. The Frenchman was heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford for some time. Indeed, his agent, Mino Raiola, continually talked up the prospect earlier this season. The speculation came amid injuries hampering Pogba’s progress; the 27-year-old had only made eight appearances this season before lockdown due to two-foot injuries.Advertisementcenter_img Loading… last_img read more

Student named Scholar of the Year finalist

first_imgSophomore Omar Garcia thought he may not go to college until he opened the white envelope labeled “Hispanic Scholarship Fund.” Now a chemical engineering major at USC, Garcia dedicated much of his high school career toward fostering a passion for STEM subjects in his high school and local community, a passion that earned him a Gates Millennium Scholarship and the opportunity to attend USC.Last week, he was one of 10 students honored as a Scholar of the Year finalist for recipients of Hispanic Scholarship Fund awards, which provide Hispanic-American students with the resources they need to obtain a higher education.“I remember when I got [the scholarship] I was so happy,” Garcia said. “I was screaming outside by my mailbox, calling my mom and yelling ‘I’m going to college.’ Before that moment, I had gotten into college, but since the cost of going to university is so high, I wasn’t quite sure where I was going to go.”Garcia spent his senior year of high school tutoring students in the Advancement Via Individual Determination program. For one hour each school day, he led a class, helping his peers in subjects ranging from chemistry to calculus.“I have always been passionate about education and I want to bring other minority students into higher education, specifically in STEM subjects,” Garcia said.Shortly after arriving at USC, Garcia joined SCout, an organization designed to promote scientific literacy on campus and in the local area. SCout volunteers visit nearby elementary schools to enhance their science curriculum by introducing supplemental instruction that fosters greater interest in the sciences, motivating students to consider careers as engineers, doctors, educators and scientists.“Our motto in SCout is ‘To teach kids, you’ve got to be a kid,’” Garcia said. “To me, this means that sometimes you have to go out of your comfort zone to make sure the kids are having fun and being inspired to pursue their dreams.”This year, Garcia served as SCout’s experiment manager — creating lesson plans, purchasing and distributing SCout’s material inventory among three elementary schools and keeping a comprehensive science journal each semester. Next year, Garcia will take on an even greater role — that of club president.SCout’s current president, Kristen Zung, said that she believes Garcia will be a perfect fit for this position, citing his leadership qualities as evidence of his potential.“Omar possesses that charisma that makes you want to listen to what he has to say,” Zung said. “He also has a personable, easy-going energy about him that makes him very approachable. When Omar talks, you want to listen.”In addition to playing an active role in SCout, Garcia is also the co-director of volunteering for the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, an organization that he says has provided him with a strong sense of community and support, especially when outside pressures began to overwhelm him.“There’s a lot of pressure on Latinos to do well because we are so underrepresented on college campuses,” Garcia said. “Everyone in SHPE wants to excel, not just academically but professionally as well. We know that a lot of people in the Latino community look up to us, so we feel that it is our job to make our families and community proud.”Fellow SHPE member and chemical engineering major Cecilia Quintana Baez praised Garcia’s dedication to service, noting that he is an inspiration to Hispanic students at USC and in the local community.“Omar is dedicated to supporting younger members of the Latino community through different outreach programs, especially when it comes to STEM,” Baez said. “He continues to raise the bar for all students, but specifically for Latinos and Hispanics at USC. He serves as an exemplary leader who balances academic excellence with community involvement, all while maintaining a positive outlook and bringing smiles to all who have the pleasure to meet him.”As a result of his involvement in various service and leadership-oriented programs, Garcia was invited to a dinner hosted by the Hispanic Scholarship Fund last Wednesday at the JW Marriott Los Angeles.“The dinner was amazing because I was surrounded by this group of ambitious students who all had desires to make a positive impact on society,” Garcia said. “I know all the attendees are going to change the world in some way and I hope I can join them in that endeavor.”last_img read more

Official Statement: Cisse apologises to Man Utd’s Jonny Evans

first_imgNewcastle United striker Papiss Cissue has issued a statement via the club’s website apologising for the spitting incident that took place with Manchester United’s Jonny Evans on Wednesday night. It came about during the first half of the game between the two sides at St James’ Park on Wednesday evening when Evans came in late on Cisse.As the pair got up TV replays suggested that both Evans and Cisse appeared to spit on each other as the were getting up.Earlier today Evans came out and denied all accusations of spitting but Cisse has taken a different route, by admitting it happened and then apologising.Cisse said that he apologises to the club, the club’s fans, to Evans himself and to every football fan saying that what he did wasn’t right and that he was reacting to something unpleasant.He went on to say that he hoped the fans watching him did not think he was encouraging this behaviour, he just found it difficult not react in the heat of the moment. “I have apologies to make to a lot of people today. Firstly to my teammates and to our supporters, secondly to Jonny Evans, and thirdly to every football fan who saw the incident between myself and Jonny.“I reacted to something I found very unpleasant. Sometimes it is hard not to react, particularly in the heat of the moment. I have always tried hard to be positive a role model, especially for our young fans, and yesterday I let you down.“I hope children out there playing football for their clubs and schools this weekend will know better than to retaliate when they are angry. Perhaps when they see the problem it now causes me and my team they will be able to learn from my mistake, not copy it.”If the FA decide to charge the two players, and finds them guilty, they will both be looking at a minimum of a six game ban according to FIFA’s official rules.last_img read more
