Daniel Sturridge reveals whether he’s unhappy at Liverpool under Klopp

first_img1 Daniel Sturridge has no desire to leave Liverpool and believes “something special” could be on the horizon under Jurgen Klopp.The effervescent German was appointed to much fanfare in October, having enjoyed a largely successful spell in the hotseat at Borussia Dortmund.It is success Klopp is now hoping to replicate at Anfield, although their intensity of play and vast number of matches means the squad has been rotated more than under predecessor Brendan Rodgers.Sturridge is among the biggest names to be regularly switched and that has led to doubts about the striker’s Anfield future, having looked impressive since overcoming his latest injury issues.The England international makes no secret of his desire to play more regularly but has rejected suggestions he is growing unhappy at Liverpool.“Yeah, of course I am happy here,” Sturridge said.“I’m happy. I’m happy. I have never expressed not being happy here. I think it is everyone playing Devil’s Advocate.“They see that I have been left out sometimes and they think ‘maybe that means he is unhappy’ but, at the end of the day, the manager has got a job to do.“He has got to pick the team that he feels is best on the day. And I have got a job to do, which is to perform when I am playing.“I have had the injuries and I have been in and out of the side in recent times but it has never been a case that I am not happy at the club.“I am grateful to the club for giving me the chance to come here from Chelsea. I am grateful to Brendan for signing me as well.“Now Jurgen has come in and he is giving me minutes on the pitch. You know – I could not be playing at all.“But, of course, I want to be playing in every game. It’s one of those things that you have to take on the chin.”There is, Sturridge says, no friction with Klopp, only the natural disappointment of a player not to be starting a match.The striker’s confidence in his ability remains undimmed, though, and he feels as fit as ever, having put in extra hours as Liverpool’s season comes to a close and Euro 2016 with England looms large.“It’s a few months since I have been back and I haven’t even had a day off,” Sturridge said. “I’m not even fronting.“I actually haven’t had a day off. When the other boys have had days off, I have been in.“It has just been extra stuff, whether I have been training or doing recovery work, I have been doing it.“I am not trying to create a sob story. At the end of the day, we get paid to do this and this is my dream. I can’t complain. I’m just grateful to God for the opportunity to be here.”Sturridge made the most of his chance from the outset in Thursday’s Europa League semi-final second leg against Villarreal, scoring one and playing a key role in another as Liverpool won 3-0.The explosive manner of his goal celebration was unusual but borne out of relief and the fact it was his biggest for a club he hopes there will be “bigger games and a lot more bigger goals”.Netting in the Europa League final against Sevilla on May 18 would likely better Thursday’s strike and victory in Basle may kick-start what Sturridge believes is an exciting future under Klopp.“We get that impression as players,” he said. “Hopefully it is the start of something special but we will take each game as it comes.“We didn’t win the last final we played in, so we have to learn from that. I think this game has shown we have learned.“This was a massive game, playing on our home turf. But we took things from the Capital One Cup in to Villarreal. We couldn’t have any regrets. We had to put everything in to it to try and get the results.”last_img read more

Beyond Crisis Point: 242 occasions of overcrowding at LUH in 2017

first_imgStaff at Letterkenny University Hospital were forced to invoke the top-level Full Capacity Protocol 242 times in the last year, new figures reveal. These measures are taken when the emergency department is so overcrowded that steps must be taken to identify patients who are appropriate for discharge. During these events, those awaiting admission are warned to expect delays and advised to visit their GPs as their first point of contact.Figures released by the HSE show that LUH was operating at Full Capacity on more days than not in 2017, which has been labelled as ‘unacceptable’ by Donegal Sinn Féin Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn. Senator Mac Lochlainn said:“The Full capacity protocol is a hospital’s highest level measure for dealing with emergency department overcrowding.“In essence, it is supposed to be the last stage of escalation under a national framework issued in 2015 to hospitals to deal with overcrowding, meaning that in a properly functioning health service it should be implemented only in exceptional circumstances.“Yet, according to figures released to Sinn Féin this week, the mechanism was invoked a total of 242 times at Letterkenny University Hospital during 2017.“Effectively this means that the measure was in place more days than not last year, which indicates that the Full Capacity Protocol has now become the rule and not the exception. “This is unacceptable and a signal of a health service beyond crisis point, for patients and staff.“And when we look at the data from other acute public hospitals across the state, we see that LUH was amongst those that had the highest prevalence of triggering the measure in 2017.“When the full capacity protocol is invoked, much of the normal activity of the hospital is suspended, additional patients are moved onto wards and corridors, while often times elective surgeries at the hospital can be cancelled.“Some hospital consultants have relayed to me that because of full capacity protocol being invoked continuously that electives surgeries are being seriously curtailed.“The situation puts huge pressure on patients and their families and it puts huge pressure on staff at LUH. “The addressing of the staffing and capacity crisis in the hospital is moving at a snail’s pace, despite this being a national emergency.“Clearly, we need to see the full weight of the Department of Health, the HSE, and the Government put behind addressing this crisis in order to scale back this crisis.”The Still Waiting Health Campaign are to stage a protest at LUH on Saturday, 24th February at 1pm to raise awareness of the many times that the protocol has been invoked.A record number of 56 people in need of medical attention were recorded waiting for beds at the emergency department on Friday morning last.Beyond Crisis Point: 242 occasions of overcrowding at LUH in 2017 was last modified: February 24th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)Tags:full capacity protocolLetterkenny University HospitalluhSenator Padraig Mac Lochlainnlast_img read more

Swamp Gas Found on Mars

first_imgThe European Space Agency’s Mars Express orbiter has confirmed earlier detections of methane in the Martian atmosphere, according to the BBC News.  Because methane could only exist in the atmosphere for a few hundred years, there must be a source that replenishes it.  Two sources have been proposed: active volcanos, or living organisms.  The BBC is hopeful it is the latter, titling its article, “Methane on Mars could signal life.”  Nature Science Update is more cautious, however, asserting that the low levels of methane detected rule out the idea of life spread all over the planet.  Instead, it might be leaking from dormant volcanos.  Science Now is not sure the methane spectra are definitive yet.They found methane hissing out of crevices in deep mines on Earth, too (see 04/08/2002 headline), and thought it was a missing link in the evolution of life.  The same comments apply.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Nissan to invest R1bn in South Africa

first_img23 August 2012 In a vote of confidence in South Africa’s automotive industry, Nissan is to invest R1-billion in the expansion of its plant at Rosslyn outside Pretoria in order to double its capacity and to prepare for production of a new one-ton pick-up range aimed at both the local and export markets. The company made the announcement on Wednesday to coincide with the visit to South Africa of Toshiyuki Shiga, chief operating officer of Nissan Motor Company of Japan. Shiga told journalists at the Rosslyn plant that he was “here today to say we are now more interested in committing ourselves to business in Africa”. South Africa, he said, would “serve as our door to more of the continent”. The move is also in response to the state’s Automotive Production and Development Plan (APDP), which will come into effect in 2013, aiming to pick up where the current industry plan leaves off by stimulating the expansion of local production to 1.2-million vehicles per annum by 2020, with an associated deepening of the local auto components industry. According to Business Day, Nissan’s investment is aimed at doubling producation at the plant to about 100 000 units a year, starting from the 2014 financial year. Nissan South Africa MD Mike Whitfield told Engineering News that the expansion of the plant would create about 800 new direct jobs and about 4 000 jobs in its supply chain. Nissan SA would also be partnering with the Gauteng provincial government in investing an additional R200-million in setting up a training centre to ensure that the skills needed for the plant’s expansion were available. Whitlfield told Engineering News that the local content of the new pick-up, excluding the power train, would be increased from the 50% of the current Hardbody pick-up to 70% of its replacement. National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of SA director Nico Vermeulen told Business Day that Nissan’s investment showed confidence in South Africa’s industry. “BMW launched its new 3-series, Ford its new Ranger, VW its Polo Vivo and so on, all recently,” Vermeulen said. “Toyota made a big investment in 2006. “We can see that major automotive manufacturers are on course to work with the APDP, which shows the industry is on a good track.” SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
