Arthur talks about his devotion to Xavi and Iniesta

first_imgBrazilian Arthur revealed how much he admires both Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta, he had to touch one of them to make sure they were real.In what is turning out to be a fantastic first season for Arthur at FC Barcelona, comparing him to Xavi and Iniesta is almost inevitable due to his style of play that is so similar to those two legends of the game.The Brazilian midfielder has been growing as a player for Barcelona, but he has managed to stay grounded and doesn’t mind geeking out when he talks about either of his two idols.It’s safe to say that Arthur gets a little bit more excited when he talks about Iniesta than Xavi, but his game is a lot more similar to that of Hernandez’s and he doesn’t shy away from how proud he feels for it.“When I met Iniesta, I had to touch him just to see if he was flesh and bone,” said Arthur on Mundo Derpotivo.“He is an idol I have followed since I was younger, that moment when I met him was incredible. I got goosebumps just thinking about it.”“I didn’t know he was coming and I was very pleasantly surprised. He actually greeted me very well.”“I have to thank him because he was the nicest to me, this moment will stay with me for the rest of my life,” he added.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.Arthur also reacted to the time Xavi said he felt identified with his style of play: “That was also another thing I thought was a lie,” he continued.“I don’t really follow the newspapers, I dedicate my free time to watching series or studying Spanish, my mom is the one who tells me all about these things.”“I thought it was a joke. To me, Xavi and Iniesta are the best midfielders I ever saw play.”“I wish Xavi played for many more years because I can learn more from him, but he will retire next summer. I’m pretty sure he will be just as good when he becomes a manager,” he concluded.The Arthur – Xavi likenings are true.. pic.twitter.com/wSnBQkoAPu— BU Videos (@BuVideos) December 17, 2018last_img read more

RBIs Weird Layoff Document

first_imgAs we reported and confirmedyesterday, Reed Business Information eliminated 41 positions, months after ReedElsevier, its parent company, announced that the unit was up for sale. The tipcame from this document,sent to one of the “victims,” which, curiously, lists the titles and ages ofthose who were laid off, as well as the titles and ages of those who remain.That’s something I’ve never seen a company do before. RBI declined to comment on the document itself, although myinitial thought was that it was intended to show that the company was notresorting to ageism in making its cuts. (At least one reader agreeswith me).Still, as another reader noted,it seemed “a bit cutthroat.” Perhaps because it is.last_img

It is also the only time in recent memory that two ancient and culturally rich roots of Sufi music – Turkish Tasawuf and Indian Sufism – are blending together on this scale.
