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

State focuses of alternative electronics hubs

first_imgKolkata: The state government is laying emphasis on developing alternative hubs for the manufacture of electronic equipment, ranging from mobiles, drones, solar and other components.”We have developed three Electronic Manufacturing Clusters (EMCs) at Naihati, Falta and Sonarpur. The lands for all these EMCs are ready for allotment. Apart from mobile manufacturing, we are welcoming solar, drones, robotics and LCD TVs in these clusters as well,” a senior official of the state Information Technology & Electronics department said.

A site office will come up soon. We are expecting a lot of electronic units here as the place has its locational advantage. It is an hour-long drive from the city and is very close to the industrial park of West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation,” the official added. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayAccording to a senior official from WEBEL, the EMC at Falta has 70 acres of land while the one at Sonarpur has 10 acres. The state government has already invited applications from investors across India for setting up electronic manufacturing units on developed land parcels in these parks. The land allotment will be processed on first-come first-serve basis. It may be mentioned that the rise of mobiles in India has been phenomenal, driven by the cheapest data in the world. In 2011, there was only one mobile manufacturing unit in the country, whereas now there are more than 400 with most of them located around Noida. The move on the part of the state government assumes significance with a top US based advocacy group recently claiming that about 200 US companies are seeking to move their manufacturing from China to India after the general elections.last_img read more

For us, it won’t make much of a difference but this will be a special game for Leo. He will make his return here in Turin as he will be playing against many of his friends.

We would be making a big mistake if we focus on Real since we first have to play against AC Milan.”“The Rossoneri will give it their all so it won’t be easy for us.
