Mahrez: I’ve put Man City move behind me

first_img0Shares0000Riyad Mahrez returned to training after a feud with his club Leicester City over their refusal to sell him to Manchester CityLEICESTER, United Kingdom, Mar 9- Riyad Mahrez insists he has put his failed January move to Manchester City firmly behind him.Premier League leaders City made four failed bids for Mahrez in the transfer window, yet the Algerian international remained at Leicester City. After the window, the 27-year-old missed training for more than a week and admits he needed to regain his mental focus with the Foxes.“I was away from here because I needed some time to think, it was a difficult situation,” Mahrez told Sky Sports News.“Manchester City is a good move for everyone but it is the past. It is behind me. If we start talking about this it’s like coming back to the transfer window and now I’m moving forward, trying to give my best for the team.“You’ll always have regrets but at that time I thought it was the best thing to do.“It was difficult, I’ve always been in contact with the club. The club handled it very well. When the team-mates and the club were behind me it was OK, it was very easy to come back here.”Mahrez is now back in the fold at Leicester and scored a dramatic 97th minute free-kick to rescue a point for Leicester against Bournemouth last weekend.But he remains vague over whether he will be involved in another transfer saga this summer.“In football players come, players leave, I’m not saying I’m coming or going,” he added.“We always talk between me and the club, everything is good, so we will see in the summer if things come. At the moment I’m a Leicester player.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Cuba evinces interest in economic cooperation with India

first_imgNew Delhi, Apr 21 (PTI) Noting that economic ties between India and Cuba dont correspond to the “good and long political” relationship they share, Cuban Ambassador Oscar I Martinez Cordoves today evinced his countrys interest in a commercial cooperation with New Delhi in several spheres.”We have politically good relations. But the question is how we can increase the economic and commercial relations? I would say the economic and commercial relations dont correspond to our history of relations. That is the reality,” Cordoves said.He said Cuba is “interested” in cooperation in some spheres of Indian economy, including renewable energy, biotech, pharmaceutical, information technology and software.”We think that our economies can be complimentary,” he added.Pointing out that while “a lot of Indians travel all over the world,” he urged them to travel to Cuba as well.”Just one per cent of the population of India could go as tourists to Cuba but we would not have enough hotels for that. We have to create trust, confidence between the two (countries). We are working in this direction, it will take time,” he said.The envoy also reiterated his countrys position on its ties with the United States, saying that the relationship can be “normalised” only if “indispensable” issues, like lifting blockade of Cuba and returning of Guantanamo Bay naval base territory by Washington, are dealt with first.He also insisted that Havana is treated “equally” in the bilateral relations with the United States.”We are a small country but we are proud of our sovereignty. Also, there are big differences, political and ideological between the United States and Cuba. We think we can live in co-existence,” he added.advertisementCordoves, however, praised US President Barack Obama for acting “positively” and for being “very brave” to “change” the US policy towards Cuba.

ICC Champions Trophy selection pleasing, says Shikhar Dhawan

first_imgShikhar Dhawan celebrated his inclusion in the ICC Champions Trophy squad with a match-winning unbeaten fifty for Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal.Dhawan retained his place in the 15-member ODI squad having last played against England in January.”I was very happy that my name got into the Champions Trophy squad,” Dhawan said at the post match presentation ceremony after guiding Sunrisers to a seven-wicket win over Mumbai Indians.Dhawan was the highest run-scorer in the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy in England with 363 runs from five matches at 90.75 and was also named the player of the tournament.Batting first, Mumbai managed to score 138 for seven in 20 overs, thanks to captain Rohit Sharma’s 67 off 45 balls. The Sunrisers bowlers were disciplined and kept things tidy, with Siddarth Kaul finishing with 3/24 and Bhuvneshwar Kumar bagging 2/29. The Afghanistan duo of Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan bowled brilliantly and were economical as they pocketed a wicket each.Chasing a paltry target, Hyderabad lost captain David Warner in the second over before Dhawan (62 not out) and Moises Henriques (44) stitched together a 91-run partnership to set up a seven-wicket win.”Davey got out early and I knew that I had to stay out and take the team home,” he said.Dhawan, who is now the second highest run-getter with 450 runs in the IPL this season behind Warner, said his hard work paid off.”I have been feeling good, I was working on my technique and my consistency. All the work I put in with my love and heart is paying off now,” he said.advertisementlast_img read more
