Kaka admits he had problems with Mourinho at Real Madridby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveKaka has spoken of his problems with Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.The Ballon d’Or winner admits he had issues with ‘The Special One.'”I was convinced that Real Madrid would be good, I think I was persistent, I got as far as I could, to my limit,” he said to Grande Circulo de SporTV.”My problem at Madrid was continuity first and then the coach, as I spent three years trying to convince Mourinho that I should have more opportunities but it was his choice, it was out of my control.”The first year I had a hip problem, then the adductor and I was operated on.”I was out of action for six months and when I returned, it was Mourinho.”I was an excellent professional, and today I can say with great joy that I can go to Real Madrid and the doors are always open.”Florentino says that I was one of the most professional athletes in the club.”Once Mourinho left, however, things didn’t get any better for the Brazilian.”In the 2013/14 season, with the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti, Florentino Perez wanted to renew the team with players from the academy and new players, and Ancelotti was very clear with me.”He told me that the president had asked for these people to play and I told him that I had to play because I wanted to be at the World Cup, so the best option was to leave. “With football being such a small world, it was inevitable that Kaka would cross paths with Mourinho again.”There’s no problem,” he added.”I went to Manchester to a sponsor’s event, I stayed at the same hotel as him and we stayed talking for two hours.”Mourinho is exactly what people see on camera, at the time he’s explosive, but he is an extremely intelligent, very prepared guy, so what people see in the interviews is all prepared.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say

CALGARY (660 NEWS) – The federal government’s move to put a $1.6-billion action plan in place for the Alberta oil and gas industry has drawn the ire of a few critics, yet other experts believe the move will yield positive results. The energy sector doesn’t need handouts to help to “explore new markets”.It knows where the markets are. It has the product. It can’t get the product TO THE MARKETS.The Trudeau government’s solution? Here’s some corporate welfare for green energy!#facepalm https://t.co/j7qesnmIB1— Aaron Wudrick (@awudrick) December 18, 2018 Take Our Poll Albertans have been clear.I have been clear. We need to get our resources to market.And we need Ottawa to take the handcuffs off.Ottawa’s announcement today is a step, but there must be many, many more steps.#KeepCanadaWorking #FightingForYou pic.twitter.com/9rl7paAoNh— Rachel Notley (@RachelNotley) December 18, 2018“Even if Justin Trudeau had announced that he was going to buy locomotives and tanker cars, I am not sure that would have satisfied people. The problem is big and the solutions are much longer term,” said Political Scientist at Mount Royal University Lori Williams.She added the federal government has waited for so long to make this move that anti-Trudeau sentiments began to fester. “They waited quite a long time for something that probably could have been put in place earlier. They could have forestalled this growing momentum of anti-federalist sentiment had they been a bit more decisive earlier on.”But Williams does predict at least some benefits. “I think it will probably move things in a positive rather than a negative direction.” Williams argues the federal government is acting like a bank, offering investment with the expectation of return.READ MORE: Ottawa confirms over $1.6-billion to help the struggling oil and gas sector She looks at some of the moves already being made to help the price of oil, such as the Alberta government’s curtailment of production as a sign that this type of action could work.“There’s absolutely no question that it can have significant impacts, certainly in the short-run. A lot of the solutions that both the federal and provincial governments are looking at are a bit longer term.” Williams believes we won’t know the full effects of this move for a few months. — With files from CityNews What do you think of the Trudeau government’s $1.6-billion support package for oil and gas companies?It’s greatIt could have been betterIt’s terrible and won’t helpVoteView Results

India’s largest drug-maker Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd reported a 30% slump in quarterly profit on Saturday, 7 November, as sales in most of its markets fell and costs related to fixing compliance issues continued to hurt.In the company’s largest market, the United States, Sun Pharma’s sales in the quarter ended September were down 28%, which the company attributed mainly to increasing competition and a supply crunch at its Halol manufacturing plant in India.”Halol” was a key contributor to Sun Pharma’s sales, but in September, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) outlined a number of problems with manufacturing processes, and the company has since been working on remediating those.However, its profit has been hit for a few quarters as it had to restrict supply, and has not been getting US approvals to launch any product made at the Halol plant.The company’s Managing Director Dilip Shanghvi sought to assure analysts on a conference call on Saturday evening that remediation efforts were on track, though they aren’t yet complete, so the USFDA has not been invited for a re-inspection.”We are keeping (the FDA) updated on the progress at the agreed frequency. I think the things we have promised or assured the FDA, we are addressing,” he said. The company has not received any feedback from the FDA, he added.Halol is one of several Sun Pharma plants undergoing remediation. Five of its other plants â€” most of which it got as part of its acquisition of Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd last year â€” are under an FDA import ban ever since the agency found a series of quality control issues at the plants.Shanghvi said the “full value” of the Ranbaxy deal would be realised by 2018.Apart from generics, the company is developing a drug to treat “psoriasis”, which is in Phase 3 clinical trials and expected to be filed for US approval in 2017.Sun Pharma reported a July-September net profit of Rs 1,107 crore ($167.4 million), down from Rs 1,572 crore a year earlier. Analysts, on average, were expecting Rs 1,308 crore, according to Thomson Reuters data.Total revenue was down 15% as sales across the countries it operates in fell. India was the only exception, where sales rose a marginal 1%.The company said currency volatilities and a decision to reduce its presence in some less-profitable areas hurt its sales in emerging and other markets during the quarter.
