Guardiola disappointed in Pulis sacking

first_imgThe 59-year-old departs with Albion just one point above the drop zone in 17th place after winning only two of their opening 12 games in the Premier League.Guardiola is disappointed to have lost an “amazing” adversary, but admits it’s all part and parcel of the game nowadays where results count above all else.“First, I can say a big hug for Tony, like before with [former West Ham boss Slaven] Bilic,” the Spaniard told a news conference. “Today, it is like this.“When I was young, they said in England they respected a lot the contracts and the managers were never sacked. Now, it is so, so difficult. Wherever, it is the same. We have to accept that, we know that.“Everybody knows when we don’t have results… managers here can win the Premier League and months later they will be sacked. You have to work within that situation.“I am really disappointed because I have a great relationship with Tony Pulis. Every time we went against West Brom he was an amazing man, so gentle. Always, we would drink a good red wine. Hopefully we can do it again in the future.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tony Pulis took the helm at West Bromwich Albion in January 2015LONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 21 – Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is hoping to come up against Tony Pulis again in the future after seeing him sacked by West Brom on Monday.Pulis was relieved of his duties in the wake of Baggies’ 4-0 defeat to Chelsea at the Hawthorns on Saturday, which continued their poor start to the season.last_img read more

FRANCOIS INVESTIGATION: ‘I’VE LOST €50,000 IN ETIC SOLUTIONS INVESTMENT’, SAYS CAFE OWNER

first_imgA DONEGAL restaurant owner spoke last night about how she fears she has lost €50,000 in a scheme run by French businessman Francois de Dietrich.Alison Carter, an American woman who moved to Ireland in 2006, is having to work 60 hours a week to keep her restaurant in Letterkenny afloat.Ms Carter revealed how she handed over €77,500 from an inheritance from her grandmother after becoming friendly with an employee of Mr de Dietrich. “It all seemed completely above board. He was very reassuring and told me there was no question I would make money from my investment,” she said.However a few months later she asked for €27,000 of her cash back to expand her restaurant, Café Magnolia, and did eventually get it back.“He was very angry with me and told me by taking some of my cash out, I would not receive profit from the €50,000 of my investment left in the scheme.“I should have known then that something was not quite right with the scheme. But my friend told me that her relatives had all made money from it. “After I signed the cash over to his company, the woman I thought was my friend had very little to do with me. I realise now that I was used,” she said.Ms Carter, who recently had to let her Head Chef go to keep her business afloat, admits that she should have sought documentation for her investment.She has since contacted a Garda Inspector in Letterkenny who has requested she provide them with various financial documentation which she is now doing.She showed copies of those documents to donegaldaily.com a week ago.“I believe I was conned into this because I trusted someone I thought was my friend. I paid capital gains taxes on all the money I invested so I have nothing to hide. “The Gardai are aware of it and are investigating the matter. But I want people to know that this is a scam and I want people to know there is no profit and they will not make any money out of it,” she said.Ms Carter is offering free coffee at her cafe to anyone else who has lost money and has offered to help set up a support group.endsFRANCOIS INVESTIGATION: ‘I’VE LOST €50,000 IN ETIC SOLUTIONS INVESTMENT’, SAYS CAFE OWNER was last modified: January 21st, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
