Pochettino wants respect for Spurs

first_imgMauricio Pochettino does not want a repeat of the inflammatory comments made by Eden Hazard towards Tottenham in their latest fight for the Premier League title.Chelsea star Hazard stated, “we don’t want Tottenham to win the Premier League; the fans, the club and the players,” ahead of an ill-tempered 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge in May 2016, a result that ended Spurs’ hopes of stopping Leicester City from winning the league.A run of five consecutive league wins has put Pochettino’s side firmly back in the race this season, with leaders Liverpool just six points above them at the halfway stage.

And Pochettino hopes there is more of a fair fight in 2018-19, having been stung by remarks such as those made by Hazard two years ago.”When you are professional, some opinions you cannot make public,” the Spurs manager said ahead of their match against Wolves on Saturday.Next up: Wolves at Wembley. #COYS pic.twitter.com/b6rZOjaL5Q— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) December 28, 2018″Because after, you create a big problem, like what happened at Chelsea. That was more like a battle than a football game.”Why did that happen? You know very well. That’s why it’s compulsory to behave professionally. We translate a lot of emotion to the people. We are public persons.”Pochettino admits there was stronger public support for Leicester’s shock title charge in 2015-16 than there was for Spurs, but he does not expect any team to earn any favours in this term’s tough battle.”Now, it is between the top six: Liverpool, Tottenham, [Manchester] City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United and it’s going to be more about who can win the league,” he said.”We are not going to receive a favour and nor will another club. It’s true, the season when Leicester were there the sympathy for Leicester was bigger than for Tottenham. That was the reality. But they won and they deserved to be the champions.”The sympathy of the neutral people was more for Leicester than for us. This is normal.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

UNhosted aviation safety conference recommends aircraft tracking every 15 minutes

The recommendation was made Tuesday by the more than 850 participants at the United Nations aviation body’s 2015 High-Level Safety Conference at ICAO headquarters in Montreal, Canada. Concerns over aircraft tracking and risks to civil aviation arising from conflict zones were brought to the fore in the wake of the 2014 downing of a Malaysia Airlines flight MH17over eastern Ukraine, and the disappearance of another Malaysian Airlines flight upon take off from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. “This new Standard will be an important first step in providing a foundation for global flight tracking and the future implementation of the more comprehensive ICAO Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS),” ICAO Council President Dr. Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu said in a press release.“Through an expedited process, it will now be sent to our Member States before the end of the month for formal comment and we’re anticipating its adoption by the [IACO] Council as early as this fall,” Mr. Aliu explained.The Member States on Tuesday also supported developing a prototype online resource for conflict zone risk assessments.“Under the Chicago Convention, each State is responsible for assessing civil aviation conflict zone risks in their territories, and for making that information promptly available to other States and airlines,” according to Mr. Aliu. “The Task Force we convened after the loss of MH17 identified that both States and airlines could benefit from greater information sharing on conflict zones, including risks assessments for a given conflict area, and that a centralized online resource could help facilitate the exchange of information needed to achieve that objective,” he said, referring to the last year’s downing of a Malaysia Airlines flight.According to the agency, “the intention is for this central repository to be hosted by ICAO and to serve as a single source for up-to-date risk assessments from States and relevant international organizations.”Other priorities supported by the conference, which ends tomorrow, include the harmonization of terminology used for risk assessments, a comprehensive review of existing requirements and message formats, and industry led-initiatives to share operational information and be more transparent with passengers on conflict zone risk methodologies being applied.ICAO, a specialized UN agency tasked with coordinating and regulating international air travel, sets rules of airspace, aircraft registration and safety, and undertakes compliance audits, performs studies and analyses. read more
