But the former Italy international decided to stay where he was happy and the 42-year-old doesn’t seem to regret spending 12 years with the Friulians, contributing 228 goals in 445 matches. “I felt good in Udine. Both me and my family,” he told the Corriere dello Sport. “If I had accepted the offer from Juventus it’s clear that my life would have changed. “But I don’t know if it would have been for better or for worse. I might have scored 300 goals instead of 2019, but don’t you consider happiness?Advertisement “Being happy playing is the first concept I try to convey to my kids.” His old friend and another club symbol, Francesco Totti, had a controversial farewell at Roma and Di Natale claims it’s a scandal that the legend doesn’t feel welcome at Trigoria. “I read that when he [Totti] accompanies his son to Trigoria, he stays outside waiting for him in the car,” Di Natale added. “In my opinion it’s a scandal, it’s a colossal shame. read also:Diego Maradona set to discover another daughter, Magali “Totti wrote the history of Roma, Totti is Roma and his statue should even be built inside the sports centre.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Antonio Di Natale reveals he chose ‘happiness’ over a transfer from Udinese to Juventus and says it’s ‘a scandal’ to know that Francesco Totti won’t enter Trigoria at Roma.last_img read more

United ‘close’ to Mata deal

first_img It was tempting to think Mata might have been a useful presence in the penalty shoot-out, with Danny Welbeck, Adnan Januzaj and Phil Jones joining Rafael in failing to convert. Moyes revealed Michael Carrick would almost certainly have taken a kick had he not succumbed to an ankle injury, whilst Hernandez – who has taken penalties for United before – was also ruled out after hurting himself celebrating his goal. “Ideally, it wouldn’t have been the group we had chosen,” said Moyes. “Javier would have taken a penalty but was injured and people like Michael Carrick would have been involved.” Press Association Juan Mata is expected to undergo a medical on Thursday before completing his club record transfer to Manchester United. However, it is believed the 25-year-old has told Chelsea officials he will not be returning to the club, with the fee exceeding the £30.75million Sir Alex Ferguson paid for Dimitar Berbatov in 2008. United’s morale could certainly do with a lift too after enduring yet another of those punches Moyes said he expected to take during his debut season. And the Scot admitted the latest was the worst yet as his team contrived to gift Phil Bardsley a goal a minute from the end of extra-time when it seemed they were about to book a final meeting against Manchester City at Wembley on March 2. Amazingly, Javier Hernandez responded almost immediately to take the tie to penalties, only for all United’s takers to fail, with the exception of Darren Fletcher, as Sunderland advanced instead. “We didn’t play well enough,” said Moyes. “If we were (to go through), we were going to stumble over the line. “With a minute or so to go we were almost there. We had opportunities to score a second goal and put ourselves in a better position but there is always going to be a loser in the semi-final and it was us.” Asked whether it was the most severe blow he had taken during his short tenure, Moyes said: “Yeah, I think it is part and parcel of the game.” A source close to the deal confirmed to Press Association Sport that it was “close” to being completed, with Mata expected to be in David Moyes’ squad for the visit of Cardiff to Old Trafford on January 28. Moyes refused to discuss Mata following Wednesday’s Capital One Cup exit at the hands of Sunderland. last_img read more

Hull to contest charge

first_img Bruce declared his club would “vigorously defend” the charge, adding: “The frustration was that he (Mahrez) was blatantly trying to get somebody sent off. “We surrounded the referee because it was a perfectly fair challenge”. The appeal will be heard by an independent regulatory commission. The charge arises from a 68th minute incident in which Tigers players surrounded referee Jonathan Moss after Alex Bruce was booked for his challenge on Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez. The club’s announcement comes as no surprise in the wake of strong comments made by boss Steve Bruce about the incident on Friday. Press Associationcenter_img Hull have announced their intention to appeal against an Football Association charge of failing to control their players during the goalless draw at Leicester on March 14.last_img read more

Florida man throws urine on prosecutor during court proceedings

first_imgA Florida man who is facing attempted murder charges is now facing additional charges after he allegedly threw urine on a prosecutor during court proceedings.The incident occurred Wednesday in a Broward County court room.According to the report, Albert Narvaez was facing sentencing for holding his former girlfriend at gunpoint inside a car and shooting at her when she managed to escape.Attorney Andrew Newman, who won the case against Narvaez was present in the courtroom.At some point during proceedings, Narvaez took out a container in which he stored urine in and flung it at Newman while yelling, “He told me to do it!”Officials say they are unsure of who Narvaez was referring to.The urine was said to have gone inside of Newman’s mouth and all over his clothing.Narvaez’ sentencing has since been postponed, however, he is now facing an additional charge of battery .The Broward State Attorney’s Office also reported that they will ask Gov. Ron DeSantis to appoint another prosecutors’ office to handle the case, as to avoid a conflict of interest because Newman is one of their employees.last_img read more

Former ambassador analyzes US-Mexico relations

first_imgFollow us on Twitter @dailytrojan On Wednesday, the USC Center on Public Diplomacy at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism hosted Arturo Sarukhan, Mexico’s former ambassador to the United States and current fellow at USC’s Center on Public Diplomacy, in a panel on United States-Mexico relations.Foreign ties· Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan speaks about the relationship between Mexico and the United States on Wednesday. – Corey Marquetti | Daily TrojanPamela Starr, associate professor of international relations and director of U.S.-Mexico Network at USC, and Jay Wang, director of the USC Center on Public Diplomacy, joined Sarukhan on the panel.“No bilateral relation has as many implications for domestic politics as the relation between the U.S. and Mexico,” Wang said. “It is, in fact, an illuminating case of how intertwined and how interdependent foreign policy and domestic policy have become.”Sarukhan, who served as an ambassador from 2007 until January of 2013, compared multiple perspectives on the Mexican-American relationship. He also brought  humor into the discussion.“Whenever one speaks, especially in this type of setting, I am reminded especially of what a friend in Texas told me. ‘Public speaking is like a Texas longhorn: there’s a point here, a point here and a lot of bull in the middle,’” Sarukhan said.Jokes aside, Sarukhan also spoke seriously on the bilateral relationship between the two countries.“As I thought of the conversation today, I thought it would make sense to do a sort of comparative approach, and use Charles Dickens as a template for the talks,” Sarukhan said. “And just as his template in the Tale of Two Cities the relationship between Mexico and the U.S. … is the best of times and the worst of times.”Sarukhan said the “best of times” began with the North American Free Trade Agreement, which linked Canada, America and Mexico economically. This agreement revitalized Mexico and ended its jingoism while promoting increased codependence, he said.“I think that NAFTA really changed how both governments interacted with one another,” Sarukhan said. “I know a lot of people who still believe that NAFTA is not a success, or a disaster, but we must agree that NAFTA is one thing and one thing only, a free trade agreement … and that it has done admirably well.”Sarukhan gave examples of NAFTA’s effects, citing the fact that $1.4 billion worth of trade happens daily on the U.S.-Mexico border and that Mexico remains the second largest importer of American goods. He also argued that the recent reverse in immigration trends comes from NAFTA’s revitalization of Mexico. Sarukhan said that the hardest part in the relationship between the two countries comes in swaying the public’s opinions.“Why is this the worst of times?” Sarukhan asked. “Because public opinions and public perceptions differ wildly from this diagnostic I have given you. And it’s basically been driven by … two drivers. The first one is obviously immigration … The second issue, obviously, has been the violence that has occurred through the shift in the paradigm of transnational crime.”Sarukhan told an anecdote from when he became the first Mexican ambassador with an official Twitter account. Though he started tweeting in English, within three weeks, there was uproar in Mexico.“‘Why are you tweeting in English? You have to tweet in Spanish,’” Sarukhan said people told him. “Then suddenly I realized that if I was to make headway convincing both sides of the border, I would have to tweet bilingually.”Students who attended the event were impressed by Sarukhan’s speaking ability.“[Sarukhan is] an amazing guy,” said Syuzanna Petrosyan, a second-year graduate student studying public diplomacy. “I’ve heard and read a lot about him. He’s a great speaker with a lot of experience. He’s very innovative in his approaches when it comes to diplomacy and foreign policy.”Sarukhan, who will now serve as a distinguished scholar at the CPD, said his main difficulty as ambassador was catering to citizens of both Mexico and the United States.“At the end of the day, and I’ll finish with this, if you were to ask me what was your most relevant challenge as a Mexican ambassador, I’d probably say winning both the hearts of Mexicans and Americans,” he said. “The largest challenge was to convince Mexicans and Americans that there are no two societies more relevant to each other’s well-being than Mexico and America.”last_img read more

League: the Government believes it is a matter of time the suspension

first_imgAccording to the Federation, “Article 42.3a of the Statutes allows the RFEF to make the decision to suspend the League, but as it is about professional football that is why Thebes has been invited to participate in this Thursday’s meeting with the aim of making it a consensus decision, also in the AFE “. In the Superior Council of Sports they believe that the best thing “is that there is consensus, but in any case it will be what the Ministry of Health says.”Several clubs and soccer players requested yesterday the suspension of the next two days instead of their celebration behind closed doors, as agreed at this time. Hours later, the AFE asked for the same measure and made a joint note for us to play the matches between Italian and Spanish teams in European competitions. David Aganzo, president of AFE, in statements to Cuatro has assured that “we have sent three letters (to the CSD, LaLiga and the RFEF) showing the concern of our soccer players. The protection is good. Let’s try not to play. “The League justified in a public note that it had decided to hold the next two closed day attending, precisely, to the instructions of the health authorities and the Higher Sports Council.The Federation had already suspended all non-professional competitions in the morning at the state level and invited the territorial federations to adopt the same measure in the tournaments of their competition. The First and Second Division League matches could be suspended after the meeting that will take place tomorrow at 12 noon between the Federation, LaLiga and AFE, once Javier Tebas has accepted Rubiales’ invitation to this important meeting, as reported. The Spanish Football Federation is in favor of the suspension, as reported by the SER, while the employer continues to refer to the recommendations of the health authorities as assured Javier Thebes in statements to Four: “There is no news. I am waiting for Health to see what it says. It is not pressure because I wait to see what Health says. My only pressure is what Health says.” For its part, the Federation has the power to suspend a “force majeure” competition in accordance with article 42.3.a of the FEF Statutes.The Government also bets on the suspension: “It is only a matter of time,” government sources have acknowledged to this newspaper. “We must wait for tomorrow’s meeting between the Federation, LaLiga and the AFE, and then the decision will be taken,” said the same sources.last_img read more
