Kane opens the door to leave Tottenham: “I want to be top”

first_imgHarry kane He is one of the top strikers in world football. The English tip is aware of how much he owes Tottenham in his career but he also knows that, at 26, it may be time to leave the whole of London in search of the titles that so far have resisted him wearing the shirt of the spurs. Taking advantage of the break caused by the coronavirus pandemic in the Premier League, ex-footballer Jamie Redknapp and Kane have shared a curious interview on Instagram for Sky Sports. During it, Redknapp He has asked the tip of Tottenham if he will remain his entire career at the London club. Kane has left a response that will not have gone unnoticed by Tottenham fans and that will have set off alarms at the club’s offices. Kane has first left the door open to an exit: “It’s one of those things, that I couldn’t say yes and that I couldn’t say no. I love Spurs, I will always love Spurs, But I’ve always said that if I don’t feel like we’re going in the right direction, then I’m not someone who stays there just for the sake of it. I am an ambitious player, I want to become a top playerWords that sound like a distress call to other clubs and more when pronounced by a striker who has always been characterized by prudence in his statements. Suitors are not going to miss Kane, who is currently recovering from a muscle injury that has prevented him from helping his team in recent months. Kane has a contract with the spurs group until 2024 And any club that wants its services will have to run into Tottenham President Daniel Levy, known for being a tough negotiator. Nevertheless, Real madrid, Manchester United and Juventus surely the next few months will be pending to see how the situation evolves.Not going to Champions League can help in your departureRight now the group that directs Mourinho he is out of the positions that give access to the Champions League in the Premier. Not playing the top European club competition is not good news to ‘please’ Kane. At the moment, English has taken a first step to an exit and it is already known that when you say that you can leave … it is that you have already left.last_img read more

However, the area is now expected to be monitored by constabulary officers and anyone caught dumping waste will be arrested and prosecuted.“We will monitor the area with constabulary and anyone caught doing that again there, we will prosecute them because I am totally fed up of it,” Narine told Guyana Times.The garbage at the John Fernandes Container Wharf had piled up over a one-week period, despite receptacles being placed at the location.Narine told this publication that person are not using the receptacles but are clearly just dumping the garbage.He is appealing to the vendors to properly dispose of their waste and forewarned that action will be taken.“We are appealing to everybody to have at least a receptacle, vendors they are the major problem because many of them do not have receptacles, they have plastic bags and so but in the interim this is our challenge. This is madness, garbage decomposes within a four-hour period, then you have the leaches, it has a lot of dangerous effects on humans and animals,” Narine cautioned.last_img read more

SHOCK AS EASONS LETTERKENNY GOES INTO EXAMINERSHIP

first_imgExclusive: THERE is shock in the business community today after Donegal Daily learned that the company which runs Easons at the Courtyard Shopping Centre in Letterkenny was placed in examinership.The interim examinership which was granted in the High Court in Dublin on Friday afternoon.It gives protection to the company from its creditors for up to 100 days. It is different from liquidation or receivership in that it is designed to allow a company in financial difficulty to re-structure debt in the hope of continuing to trade. However it also means creditors owed money won’t be able to claim it before Christmas.Michael McAteer of Grant Thornton, Chartered Accountants was appointed by the High Court as Interim Examiner of Bookfinder Limited.The company’s current directors are Alan Bundschu and Mark Bundschu. It was founded in Galway in 1986 is headquartered in Salthill.The prime purpose of the Examinership process is to assist companies in financial difficulty and to allow the Examiner formulate a rescue plan for the Company. “The protection period of the Court can extend up to a maximum of 100 days from the presentation of the petition. During this period no creditor is entitled to institute any proceedings against the Company nor can a secured creditor seek the appointment of a Receiver,” Bookfinder Limited said in a letter to people owed money today.The letter goes on: “If the Examiner considers that the Company is capable of surviving he must then formulate what is termed a “Scheme of Arrangement” (“the Scheme”), dealing with liabilities of the Company as at the date of presentation of the petition.“This process is done in close consultation with the management, shareholders and creditors of the Company. The Scheme, when formulated, is presented to the various classes of the Company’s creditors so they can express their views as to its acceptability or otherwise.“The Examiner then reports the outcome of those meetings to the Irish High Court who will then decide whether the Scheme has sufficient support to warrant an order to put the Scheme into effect. Once this order is made the Scheme becomes binding on all creditors and comes into effect not later than 21 days after the Scheme has been approved by the Court.“For Examinership to succeed it is essential that the Company continues without undue disruption while it is under the protection of the Court. In this regard, the Examiner, unlike a Receiver or Liquidator, does not take over the executive powers of the Company.” Creditors are told to contact Grant Thornton with details of the money owed to them.SHOCK AS EASONS LETTERKENNY GOES INTO EXAMINERSHIP was last modified: November 17th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:courtyardEasonsexaminershipShockShopping centrelast_img read more

‘DISTORTED PERSPECTIVES’ FESTIVAL RETURNS TO THE RCC FOR MAY BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND

first_imgDistorted PerspectivesDonegal will play host to its third annual experimental music and art festival when Distorted Perspectives lands back in Letterkenny over the May Bank Holiday Weekend for three amazing nights of music in the Regional Cultural Centre and No.58 (Central Bar Upstairs). The three gigs at the RCC start at 8pm, tickets can be booked at An Grianán Theatre Box Office on 0749120777 or online at www.regionalculturalcentre.com and there is a special 3 gig weekend ticket priced €20. Distorted Perspectives is presented by the RCC in association with the Earagail Arts Festival.  The festival opens on Friday 29th April with the psychedelic pop king and former cohort of War on Drugs, BC Camplight along with Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts, who the New York Times described as an indie-rock Woody Allen and Jarvis Cocker saw fit to call “The best lyricist working in the US today”. Leeds-based Hookworms will headline on Saturday night with their impetuous motorik and piercing swathes of noise. Thought of by many as one of the best live bands currently touring, Hookworms flung themselves into the public’s consciousness with 2013’s Pearl Mystic LP, which was one of the most-acclaimed albums of the year in the UK press. Saturday also features Dublin act Twinkranes, who NME magazine described as “.a fantastically unhinged mix of speeded-up krautrock rhythms, dirty drones and wonky synthesizers, which is at once weird and danceable and very pop”. Sunday at the RCC features an evening of live music specifically composed to accompany a selection of film. This includes a sound and vision mix of the surrealist ‘Meshes In The Afternoon’ by F12 and a short performance piece by AUTUMNS and  an experimental score to the 1920 German silent expressionist horror film ‘The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari’ performed by a collective of local Donegal musicians. Co-founder of the eponymous Glasgow club night, label and worldwide DJ partnership that is Optimo (Espacio), JD TWITCH closes the Distorted Perspectives weekend with an Africa inspired late night DJ set in the newly developed No.58 venue (above The Central Bar) on Sunday night.  In addition to these four great music events Distorted Perspecives will also feature some great art. Miska Westell, an artist and designer originally from England now based in Austin, Texas who does a lot of art for will exhibit a series of psychedelic posters.
