You have to work yourself until the end and my boys did it, so we must look ahead to the next challenge at home.”He continued: “We are learning every day, since last season. What we try is to concentrate on ourselves. We know that we must do better to compete against such a big and fantastic team.“There’s always a challenge for us. We can’t erase the game from our memories, but we’ll try because what is important is the next one.” last_img read more

a month agoMan City boss Guardiola: Otamendi and Fernandinho too old for regular football

first_imgMan City boss Guardiola: Otamendi and Fernandinho too old for regular footballby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City boss Pep Guardiola says Fernandinho and Nicolas Otamendi are too old to play every game.Otamendi is the only healthy natural centre-back in the squad meaning Fernandinho, a regular midfielder, started in Wednesday’s 3-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk.But Guardiola says because of their age he will have to call upon Kyle Walker and Rodri to play minutes at centre-back.”I didn’t have doubts [Fernandinho] could do it,” Guardiola said after City’s win on Wednesday. “Nico is 31, Fernandinho is 34 and the next alternative (Eric Garcia) is 18. For three or four months I don’t know what will happen.”Both were incredible tonight. Nico showed incredible personality after what happened in the previous game.”We need another solution — Rodri or Kyle Walker maybe — because they cannot play every game at their age.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Uber reveals coverup of hack affecting 57M riders drivers

first_imgUber is coming clean about its coverup of a year-old hacking attack that stole personal information about more than 57 million of the beleaguered ride-hailing service’s customers and drivers.So far, there’s no evidence that the data taken has been misused, according to a Tuesday blog post by Uber’s recently hired CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi. Part of the reason nothing malicious has happened is because Uber acknowledges paying the hackers $100,000 to destroy the stolen information.The revelation marks the latest stain on Uber’s reputation.The San Francisco company ousted Travis Kalanick as CEO in June after an internal investigation concluded he had built a culture that allowed female workers to be sexually harassed and encouraged employees to push legal limits.It’s also the latest major breach involving a prominent company that didn’t notify the people that could be potentially harmed for months or even years after the break-in occurred.Yahoo didn’t make its first disclosure about hacks that hit 3 billion user accounts during 2013 and 2014 until September 2016. Credit reporting service Equifax waited several months before revealing this past September that hackers had carted off the Social Security numbers of 145 million Americans.Khosrowshahi criticized Uber’s handling of its data theft in his blog post.“While I can’t erase the past, I can commit on behalf of every Uber employee that we will learn from our mistakes,” Khosrowshahi wrote. “We are changing the way we do business, putting integrity at the core of every decision we make and working hard to earn the trust of our customers.”That pledge shouldn’t excuse Uber’s previous regime for its egregious behaviour, said Sam Curry, chief security officer for the computer security firm Cybereason.“The truly scary thing here is that Uber paid a bribe, essentially a ransom to make this breach go away, and they acted as if they were above the law,” Curry said. “Those people responsible for the integrity and confidentiality of the data in-fact covered it up.”The heist took the names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers of 57 million riders around the world. The thieves also nabbed the driver’s license numbers of 600,000 Uber drivers in the U.S.Uber waited until Tuesday to begin notifying the drivers with compromised driver’s licenses, which can be particularly useful for perpetrating identify theft. For that reason, Uber will now pay for free credit-report monitoring and identity theft protection services for the affected drivers.Kalanick, who still sits on Uber’s board of directors, declined to comment on the data breach that took place in October 2016. Uber says the response to the hack was handled by its chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, a former federal prosecutor whom Kalanick lured away from Facebook in 2015.As part of his effort to set things right, Khosrowshahi extracted Sullivan’s resignation from Uber and also jettisoned Craig Clark, a lawyer who reported to Sullivan.Clark didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment sent through his LinkedIn profile. Efforts to reach Sullivan were unsuccessful.Uber’s silence about its breach came while it was negotiating with the Federal Trade Commission about its handling of its riders’ information.Earlier in 2016, the company reached a settlement with the New York attorney general requiring it to take steps to be more vigilant about protecting the information that its app stores about its riders. As part of that settlement, Uber also paid a $20,000 fine for waiting to notify five months about another data breach that it discovered in September 2014.last_img read more

Shakhtar Donetsk boss impressed by Hoffenheim

first_imgShakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca felt that Hoffenheim proved doubters wrong in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw between the sidesIn an enthralling game at Metalist Stadium, Shakhtar twice came back from a goal down to seal a 2-2 draw with Hoffenheim after goals from Dos Santos and De Andrade Barberan cancelled out Florian Grillitsch and Havard Nordtveit’s earlier efforts for the visitors.But, while impressed with Hoffenheim, Fonseca felt that they had given the Bundesliga side a helping hand by some poor defensive work before the break.“We expected such a tough game. I had heard that many people didn’t believe in Hoffenheim but this team have shown they are capable of playing aggressive and attacking football,” the Portuguese said on SportsMax.RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, Robert LewadowskiMatch Preview: RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 RB Leipzig will have the chance to prove their title-winning capabilities when they host Bayern Munich today at 18:30 (CET).“They played very well.

Luis Suarez doesnt close Barcelonas doors to Neymar

first_imgDuring an interview with Diario Sport, Luis Suarez opened up about his desire of Neymar possibly going back to FC Barcelona in the near future.Uruguay striker Luis Suarez was one of the most devastated players after Neymar’s exit from Barcelona, the Brazilian forward developed a very close relationship with both him and Leo Messi.During their time together at the Catalan club, the world got to know them as one of the best attacking-trios in football history and nobody wanted that society to end.When the news about Neymar’s decision to leave the club broke, both Messi and Suarez were stunned because they really didn’t expect it and they both have confessed that they miss their friend.Luis Suarez recently revealed more details about the time they spent time together at the Catalan club, he talked about the joy that Neymar brought to all his teammates inside the dressing room and also about how hard they took the player’s absence once he left.The striker was always one of the main people for Neymar, who addressed him as “Fatty” as a term of endearment and was always joking around him or Leo Messi.Now that the Brazilian seems to struggle at PSG, the constant noise about his return to Barcelona doesn’t stop and Neymar becomes part of a headline whenever he visits Barcelona.#PortadaSPORT 📰 | “Lo queremos todo” https://t.co/DScIBkyWln— Diario SPORT (@sport) February 1, 2019“Neymar was obviously a player who transmitted a lot of joy inside the dressing room,” said Luis during the interview.“He was one of those teammates who was always smiling and happy around everybody, as Brazilians do in general.”“We all obviously miss that from him, but when the time came we made the decision to change the chip and understood that he wasn’t going to be with us anymore and we needed to change that emptiness that he left when he moved to PSG.”“I always say that you never know what can happen in football. I know for a fact that he is having a lot of fun in Paris right now, his objectives are clear there.”“But obviously as a teammate, friend, and a football fan, I would always want to have the best players in the world by my side.”Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“But Neymar coming back to Barcelona is nothing more than a hypothesis at the moment, you never know what can happen.”“It would obviously excite me having him back with us because he is an incredible player who can always make a difference.”“But we also have to be aware that the decision he made was very complicated, and making the decision to come back would be just as difficult,” he concluded.After hearing what Luis Suarez had to say about his friend Neymar’s possible return, it’s clear that the Barcelona dressing room is divided on this issue because we have the ones who would like him back at the club like him.But we also have the other part of the club, the players and fans who are still very hurt by the Brazilian choosing to leave the institution and leave them out to dry.You can see these angrier individuals just by hearing what Jordi Alba had to say about Neymar’s possible return, the Catalan player chose to not believe the information and decided to reject the possibility.In his statement, the Barcelona left-back sounded hurt by the idea of Neymar coming back because he clearly thinks that the whole chapter is past the club.But the information about the player’s possible return cannot all be a coincidence from various sources, clearly someone from Neymar’s side is pushing this narrative and they want him to have the option for the future in case he decided to return.One can understand both sides of the coin, Suarez longing for his friend to come back and Alba simply not interested anymore.#EntrevistaSPORT 🔵🔴 | Luis Suárez: “¿Neymar? Es complicada la decisión que tendría que tomar” https://t.co/myunb05PJT📰 @didacpeyret 🎥 @RMoreno_94 pic.twitter.com/08S3Ii0IEF— Diario SPORT (@sport) February 1, 2019Would you like Neymar to return to Barcelona or remain at PSG?

Henderson hails Milner and Fabinho

first_imgAccording to the Liverpool midfielder, the team is doing pretty well in the English Premier League thanks to Fabinho and James Milner.Liverpool is currently in the first place of the English Premier League table with 57 points.They are four points ahead of second-place Manchester City.And for defender Jordan Henderson, is all thanks to Fabinho and James Milner.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“Aside from the big task of trying to get the right result in this game, we also have the challenge of a few injuries at the moment and we, as the players, know this means we all have to step up, be flexible and adapt,” Henderson told the club’s official website.“In recent games, we take great inspiration from people like Fabinho. Yes, he’s an experienced international with a track record of performing well in multiple positions – but to play center-half at Brighton and play like he did impress everyone.”“There was no fuss or drama from Fab – he just delivered,” he added.“James Milner, as the gaffer has joked, has played just about every position on the pitch except as ‘keeper. Already this season he’s filled in at full-back and the way he gets on with his job and puts the team first is a perfect example as well.”last_img read more
