GAME PREVIEW Gareth Bale Real MadridReal Madrid are a long way from really panicking, but handing a four-point head start to Barcelona in La Liga is less than ideal.Zinedine Zidane’s men have been held to consecutive draws at the Santiago Bernabeu by Valencia and Levante, and the team it seemed no one could stop suddenly has a few questions to answer.Madrid were without Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane in the 2-2 tie with Valencia and Varane again for the 1-1 against Levante, and you would think the defence should tighten up when the first-choice unit is restored.Zidane has also made some experimental – and admittedly odd, at times – tactical choices, such as starting Marcelo on the left wing, to ensure the depth players in his squad get games and his stars are not overworked.So it has not exactly been Madrid firing on all cylinders, and some of the issues should work themselves out.But there will be greater concern over the lack of depth up front, which has been exposed by Cristiano Ronaldo’s suspension and Karim Benzema’s injury, now Alvaro Morata has left.Morata was always destined for a more glamorous job than the man tasked with ensuring Madrid saw off the rank-and-file of La Liga but the void his departure has left is already apparent.last_img read more

Stoichkov can’t see Neymar at Real Madrid

first_imgTransfers Stoichkov can’t see Neymar at Real Madrid Joe Wright 02:39 2/9/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) neymar - cropped DENIS CHARLET/AFP/Getty Images Transfers Real Madrid Luis Suárez Zinédine Zidane Neymar Lionel Messi PSG Barcelona Ligue 1 Primera División The PSG forward continues to be linked with a shock move back to Spain, but the former Barcelona star does not think it will happen Former Barcelona star Hristo Stoichkov would be surprised to see Neymar leave Paris Saint-Germain to join Real Madrid.The Brazil international has been linked with a shock return to Spain at the end of the season, despite having only moved to PSG last August for a world-record fee of €222 million.Speculation the 26-year-old is unsettled in France has prompted persistent talk of a move to Madrid, who are said to be considering huge investment in the playing squad before next season after a dreadful defence of their league title.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player But Stoichkov, a five-time La Liga winner across two glittering spells at Camp Nou, cannot see Neymar moving to the Santiago Bernabeu.”I don’t see him at Real Madrid,” he told Radio Marca. “I wish him all the best for what he’s doing, but I don’t believe he’s going to win everything he won with Barca.”Madrid’s poor domestic form, which has left them 19 points behind unbeaten leaders Barca and saw them exit the Copa del Rey to Leganes, has increased the pressure on head coach Zinedine Zidane.The former France star’s future could come under further scrutiny if they are unable to beat PSG in the last 16 of the Champions League, the first leg of which takes place on Wednesday.Stoichkov, however, thinks sacking Zidane would be a mistake.”Sometimes, in football, the greats suffer,” he said. “Real Madrid will need time to rebuild everything.”Nobody doubts Zidane is a great coach but he has to have patience. Nobody can take away the titles he’s won.”Barca’s own charge towards another treble has been inspired by the form of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, and Stoichkov has been amazed by them both.”I’ve never seen anything like Leo. Every day, he surprises me with something new,” he said.”I knew him when he was little and he was a humble boy, a fighter and a hard worker.”He added of Suarez: “I’ve always admired him. He’s come through difficult moments, like the World Cup ban, which was really unfair. “He’s one of the players with whom you most identify the Barcelona shirt. He’s a star.”last_img read more

Fincantieris Q1 Results on Track to Meet Business Plan

first_imgzoom Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri reported a EUR 1.104 billion in revenue and income for the first quarter of this year against EUR 1.048 billion (approximately USD 1.19 billion) year earlier, up 5.3% compared to the same period of 2016.The company’s EBITDA was also up year-on-year standing at EUR 67 million against EUR 51 million in 2016, with EBITDA margin increasing to 6.0% marking a major improvement from 4.9% of Q1 2016, the company said.According to Fincantieri, the results are in line with the Business Plan 2016-2020 targets.The shipbuilder’s total backlog came at EUR 26.6 billion, covering approximately 6 years of work if compared to 2016 revenues. The backlog as at March 31, 2017 was EUR 20.8 billion up by over USD 5 billion from a corresponding period from last year with 103 ships in the order book.Since the start of the year, Fincantieri secured contracts for a total of 19 cruise ships, including options.Specifically, 2 ships have been ordered for Carnival’s brands Princess Cruises and Holland America Line; 4 ships plus 2 options for the Norwegian Cruise Line brand; binding agreements with CSSC and Carnival for the construction in China of 2 ships plus 4 options; letter of intent signed by VARD for another expedition cruise vessel, and memorandum of agreement signed in April for 2 ships plus 2 options for Viking Ocean Cruises.Three cruise ships delivered by Fincantieri’s yard in the first few months of the year, those being Viking Sky, Majestic Princess and Silver Muse.“The group will continue its work to achieve the growth targets envisaged by the Business Plan. In this respect I would like to point out that over the two-year period 2015-2016 we have hired around 600 people in Italy, while the increase of production volumes has added around 3,000 jobs in our subcontractor network. Furthermore, we expect to hire another 400 people in Italy in 2017 only,” Giuseppe Bono, Fincantieri’s Chief Executive Officer, said.Looking ahead, Fincantieri expects its shipbuilding segment to benefit from further increase in production volumes coupled with improved margins, primarily thanks to the start of construction works for cruise sister ships, ordered in the post-crisis period at higher prices, to full-swing production for the Italian Navy’s fleet renewal program and to the full start-up of design activities for the Qatari Ministry of Defense contract. Actions to increase profitability through production synergies with VARD will also continue to be pursued.last_img read more
