first_img“Beyond our affection, esteem and liking for this boy it’s a fantasy football story,” Marotta told Mediaset Premium on Monday.“His is a profile we don’t need.”Balotelli won six trophies with Inter Milan including the Champions League before moving to Manchester City in 2010, followed by two spells at AC Milan either side of an unsuccessful stint at Liverpool.The 27-year-old left Liverpool on a free transfer in August 2016 to join Nice, who are sixth in the French league this season.Marotta confirmed the reigning six-time league champions’ interest in Liverpool’s German international Emre Can, whose contract expires in June.“We know his contract is expiring but he could renew or have other opportunities,” said Marotta.“We’ll try to bring him to us, I think a big club has to have the ambition to achieve difficult objectives.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000There were reports that a five-year deal was in the offing for the former Manchester City striker, who has hit top form for Nice this season with 17 goals.TURIN, Italy, Jan 23 – Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta has dismissed reports that the Serie A champions are interested in signing Italian striker Mario Balotelli as “a hoax”.There were reports that a five-year deal was in the offing for the former Manchester City striker, who has hit top form for Nice this season with 17 goals.last_img read more

Leicester City open contract talks with star man

first_img1 Jamie Vardy Leicester are in talks with Jamie Vardy over a new contract.The striker’s current contract expires in 2018 but the Foxes are already prepared to reward the England star with a new deal which will tie him to the King Power Stadium until 2019. No deal is imminent but talks are progressing well with the 29-year-old striker, who has scored 16 goals this term, ahead of Tuesday’s visit of Liverpool. Vardy set a new Premier League record when he netted in 11 straight games before Christmas and has helped the Foxes to the top of the standings.The 29-year-old signed his last contract in 2014 but – after boss Claudio Ranieri insisted earlier this season they would wait until the end of the campaign to extend the forward’s deal – Leicester have now moved to end speculation on his future.Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all been credited with an interest although Press Association Sport understands City are not keen on the forward, despite admiring his achievements this season.Vardy joined City from Fleetwood for £1m in 2012 and has since broken into the England squad, earning four caps, and is set to be included in Roy Hodgson’s squad for Euro 2016 this summer. He has scored 42 goals in 131 appearances for the Foxes.last_img read more

Others nominate choices for best teacher

first_img The staff at my school is the most caring, enthusiastic, fun and reliable staff in LAUSD. The key to our success has been our wonderful principal, Ms. Valerie Turner. Even though she has been a principal at Holmes for one year, she has made a mark on our school that will last forever. It is practically impossible to pick just one teacher out of all the great teachers here at Oliver Wendell Holmes Middle School. So I’ve decided to nominate all staff members. – Brett Michael Holzhauer, Northridge I have seen Coach Terry Fischer at El Camino Real High School stress what it means to countless students to give their best, whether it is music or wrestling. I have seen Coach Fischer attempt to express true values to students and athletes on his teams and to never give up, no matter what the circumstances. And I have seen Coach Fischer instruct personal responsibility and its importance to his students and student athletes. – Alex Ford, Simi Valley I am nominating my brother, Luis Lopez-Arriaga, as an inspiring teacher. Luis is a special education teacher in the Antelope Valley School District. I saw him in action when he took his class to a pumpkin patch for a field trip – 12 high-strung children can get one overwhelmed. Not Luis. He had an answer for all the students’ questions. These kids look up to him and he really cares to make an impact in their lives. – Vanessa Lopez, Santa Clarita I have two nominations, and they are from the same grade school – Brentwood Science Magnet in Brentwood. The first is Melele Mestman, who is teaching second grade. She switches to the lower grades because she said she wanted to teach the children right in the beginning to give them a head start and better study skills. … The second is Lily Chang, a fifth-grade teacher. Self-confidence and respect are instilled in the children, as well as the philosophy that hard work does pay off in the end. – Michelle Dornidon, Tarzana160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
