I am a manager today because of Cruyff – Guardiola

pep-guardiola-training_3628289

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said his success as a manager, is down to the things he learnt from the late Johan Cruyff at Barcelona.

The Spaniard is widely acknowledged as one of the best coaches in world football and has won 21 trophies during his time at Barca and Bayern Munich.
Guardiola, who was almost sold by the Catalan club until Cruyff intervened, says the education he received under the Dutchman who died in March this year, laid the foundations for his career path.

Speaking at the London launch of the autobiography ‘Johan Cruyff: My Turn’, he said: “I was a lucky guy, I coached City, Bayern and Barca because I met him.

“I thought I knew about football but when I met him, a whole new world opened in front of me.

“He taught us – not only me, but a generation of players – to understand the game, to understand why you took that decision.
“Football is the most complicated game, it’s very open and you have to take a lot of decisions. His impact on people was enormous.

“He wasn’t sitting during training sessions, he was playing with us, but better than us. He would not tell us how to do things, he would do them. Every single training session was a masterclass.

“He had knowledge, charisma, personality. Everyone knows about football, everyone, but there’s not many people that you will follow if he tells you to. You followed him.

“He was the most courageous manager I ever met. He believed in the ‘efecto mariposa’ (butterfly effect), that a good pass at the beginning could create a wonderful thing at the end.”

Ugandan Pastor tells church members to burn the Bible, says it is misleading them (Photos)

A Ugandan pastor of House of Prayer ministries, Aloysius Bugingo allegedly gathered all his church members Bibles on Easter Monday and burned them because he thinks it’s misleading them.

According to the report by Zambezi Reporters,  he says that Bibles like the King James version and the New Testament, have been tampered with and some verses omitted.

Pastor Bugingo said that the lines talking about the Fasting and Lent, in general, were erased and that the word “ Holy Ghost ” appears a whopping 99 times yet the word “Holy Spirit” appears only seven times.

He therefore, requested members of his congregation to collect all the said Bible versions and set them ablaze.

CBN to Sustain Forex Intervention, Releases Fresh $418m

The apex bank of Nigeria has moved to boost the value of the naira in the local market by pumping more forex into the economy.
The Central Bank of Nigeria on Sunday vowed to sustain its intervention in the foreign exchange market to ensure liquidity in that segment of the financial sector.
The Acting Director, Corporate Communications, CBN, Mr. Isaac Okorafor, stated this in a statement issued in Abuja.
He said as part of its determination to make forex available to genuine users, the apex bank on Friday auctioned the sum of $418m at the retail segment at the rate of N310 to a dollar.
He gave the sectors of the economy that benefitted from the intervention as aviation, agriculture, petroleum and raw materials/machineries.
The statement  read in part, “In its avowed determination to ensure ample supply of foreign exchange liquidity in the market, the Central Bank of Nigeria on Friday, 7th of April, 2017 auctioned the sum of $418m at a marginal rate of N310/$.
 
“This was in addition to the sum of $350m sold as wholesale auction during the week. In the weeks ahead, the CBN will sustain its intervention through the sale of foreign exchange to all segments of the market.”
The statement said the CBN would sell short-tenured forwards of seven-day to 30-day maturity to meet the demand of manufacturers and all other foreign exchange users.
The apex bank said the injection of foreign exchange into the market should reassure all users of its determination to continue to meet all legitimate forex demand in the market.
It added that the intervention was part of measures to achieve exchange rate stability in the financial market.
