The British team of Edward Clancy, Geraint Thomas, Steven Burke and Peter Kennaugh set a blistering pace to win in 3 minutes 51.659 seconds, almost two seconds faster than their own world record had been before the Olympics.Britain retained their title from Beijing four years ago and won their third cycling medal of the Olympics so far.Australia’s Jack Bobridge, Glenn O’Shea, Rohan Dennis and Michael Hepburn finished 2.922 seconds behind Britain for the silver medal.Bronze went to the New Zealand team, who beat Russia by 2.3 seconds in the bronze medal race after resisting a mid-race Russian charge to win in a time of 3 minutes 55.292 seconds.
Hosts FC Pune City were held to a 1-1 draw by Kerala Blasters in an Indian Super League (ISL) match on Monday.Cedric Hengbart put the visitors into the lead in the third minute of the match before Mohameed Sissoko equalised for the hosts in the 69th at the Balewadi Sports Complex here.Kerala got off to a flying start, Hengbart scoring the fastest goal of the ongoing edition of the tournament so far in 2 minutes 12 seconds.Hengbart smashed in from close range after receiving the ball from a corner.Pune’s first chance came in the 15th minute but Tato volleyed the ball wide. They came closing in again three minutes later. But Traore’s header missed the target.Traore wasted another opportunity in the 40th minute when Jesus Tato provided an excellent delivery from the right but the header, under a challenge from Hengbart, sailed wide.Pune continued with their attacks in the second session, hunting for the equaliser and it was Traore who went close again. A weak back-pass from Josu was cleared just in time by Kerala Blasters goalkeeper Sandip Nandy before Traore could pounce on the opportunity. When Traore finally headed the ball inside the nets, he was flagged offside.Pune, however, were not to be denied the equaliser in the 68th minute. A cross from Jonatan Lucca saw Sissoko take a shot at goal which deflected off Hughes and sneaked past Nandy.The draw meant Pune picked up their first point at home after losing two matches in a row. They now have four points from four matches, while Kerala Blasters have five points from five matches and are unbeaten in three games.advertisement

Editors’ Recommendations Hang Tight with the Best Camping and Backpacking Hammocks The Best Labor Day Deals on Outdoor Gear from REI, Backcountry, and More If you’re a serious outdoorsman, you’ve probably got the gear for basecamp trip to Denali, or even a month or two trip down the Appalachian Trail. However, how many of us really have a hardcore camping trip planned where we’ll need that zero degree mummy bag or Gore-Tex tent? Most camping these days involves more car travel and mellow nights at the lake than serious extreme weather or high altitude adventures.There’s nothing wrong with some simple car camping, or pitching a tent at your favorite summer festival (SXSW maybe?) when you can’t get away from civilization for weeks on end, and our new favorite brand for casual camping gear is Ticla. Founded with the weekend warrior instead of the explorer in mind, Ticla maximizes your time outdoors, and not your stress over the right equipment. For their team, camping is more about the experience – you shouldn’t have to worry if your gear is going to perform. Likewise, if you have to figure out how to pitch your tent or even open your sleeping bag, your time spent in the backcountry tends to be less than fun.Our favorite piece of gear from Ticla? Take a look at the G.O.O.D. (Get Out Of Dodge) kit. It’s designed around the principle that packing for a weekend trip should be simple. It includes a Rambler sleeping bag and Tsubo sleeping pad, along with a unique stuff sack. Instead of individually stuffing or cramming your pads and bags into suff sacks, everything rolls into a convenient storage and travel sack. Your pad rolls up in the bag, fitting your sleeping bag in the middle with enough space to stash an extra pillow, headlamp and book, covering all your immediate sleeping needs.Need shelter to go along with your G.O.O.D. package? The Teahouse tents are built on the premise that you actually want to enjoy the views from your tent instead of walling yourself off from nature. After all, you’re heading out on the camping trip to enjoy the great outdoors right? The line-up from Ticla will help you do that as painlessly as possible; massive amounts of bug repellent not included.

Santiago: Some 40,000 litres (10,500 gallons) of oil have spilt into the sea from a terminal on a remote island in Patagonia on the southern tip of Chile, local authorities said. The Chilean navy said Saturday it sent a team to the site — about 250 kilometres (155 miles) northeast of the town of Puerto Natales — after Chilean mining and steelworking company CAP alerted it to the incident. “Units were ordered to deploy immediately to the area to take stock of what has happened, to control and mitigate possible damage caused by the emergency,” said the Chilean navy. A barge and an ocean patrol boat were sent, along with a team to limit contamination at the site, the navy said, adding they have opened an investigation into the spill. The affected area is part of Chile’s extreme south, which has some of the world’s cleanest waters and richest marine ecosystems.

(RENE JOHNSTON / TORONTO STAR) Fans of live music have witnessed a lot of casualties on the local scene lately — with one club after another closing or threatening to — so they might understandably fear the worst.But lurking behind all the talk of a “venue crisis” — which reached a fever pitch when the beloved Silver Dollar Room went dark in May after remaining a fond fixture on the Spadina Ave. strip since 1958 — there’s also some pretty good news.We might have lost places like the Dollar, the Hoxton, the Holy Oak, the Central and the Hideout over the past year or so, and watched Hugh’s Room and Cherry Cola’s barely achieve stays of execution.

“It is reprehensible that armed and violent gangs are still acting in this manner in the northern part of Mitrovica, or any area of Kosovo,” the mission said in a statement. “UNMIK calls on all to repudiate them and their methods. They directly contradict the standards for Kosovo that responsible leaders are working to achieve.”The incident, in which one World Bank delegation member was slightly hurt, began when the delegation visited a local restaurant in mainly Serb north Mitrovica where, by chance, the ethnic Albanian Prime Minister of Kosovo, Bajram Rexhepi, paid a visit.Several unidentified people threw stones, damaging the windows. Mr. Rexhepi left and was not injured, but the delegation, while leaving by UN bus and cars, became disoriented and ended up at the North Mitrovica Hospital “where regrettably the incident continued,” UNMIK said in a statement issued after the incident on Saturday.A crowd of about 150 people gathered, the UN bus was damaged and two Kosovo police vehicles were burned. Eventually the delegation made its way safely to Regional Police Headquarters, where one member was treated for minor injuries.In today’s statement UNMIK reaffirmed that “the Prime Minister is Prime Minister of all Kosovo and can travel freely anywhere in its territory.”

OSU freshman forward Lauren Spring (27) prepares for a face-off during a game against Bemidji State Oct. 17. at the OSU Ice Rink. OSU won 5-1. Credit: Alexis Soares / Lantern reporterThe Ohio State women’s hockey team bounced back from a winless weekend against Wisconsin to sweep Bemidji State in a home series over the weekend.The Buckeyes improved to 4-2-0 on the season and 2-2-0 in conference.In Saturday’s matchup, OSU won 1-0.With a little more than 11 minutes to play in the first period, the Buckeyes were on a power play following a hooking penalty by Bemidji senior forward Rachael Kelly. OSU scored on the play, but referees waved the goal off due to a Buckeye player illegally being in the crease.Once Bemidji returned to full strength, the two teams held each other to a scoreless first period. Going into the second period, the Buckeyes came out of the locker room with high energy, and it took them only five minutes to score the game’s first goal. Senior forward Danielle Gagne put one past Bemidji freshman goalie Erin Deters on a breakaway, her second goal of the season.Then it was Bemidji’s turn to have a goal disallowed. Referees reviewed the play and realized the net was off prior to the goal being scored.In the last 17 minutes of the game the Buckeyes held on to their lead and fought off two power plays to defend their home ice and complete the sweep.Freshman goalie Kassidy Sauve stopped a total of 15 shots and completed her second shutout of the season.The two teams were able to keep the series from turning nasty, like it did last year. When the Buckeyes met the Beavers for a series last November, a brawl after the final whistle of the game resulted in 19 players being given game misconducts. The game set an NCAA record for penalty minutes with 318.In the first game, played on Friday, junior forward Julie McKinnon scored a hat trick to lead the Buckeyes to a 5-1 victory. Junior forward Kendall Curtis added the team’s other two goals.Curtis scored her first goal in the first period, tying the game after Bemidji goal scored by freshman forward Summer Thibodeau.With the score still tied in the second period, McKinnon scored a goal 8:27 into the frame to push the Buckeyes ahead, and from then on it was all OSU. Another goal went on the board for the Buckeyes nearly three minutes later, when Curtis scored on the power play. Then McKinnon grabbed her second and third goals of the game in the third period.The Buckeyes have a week off before a two-game series against St. Cloud State, scheduled for Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. The team will play this series at the Schottenstein Center, as opposed to its typical home of the OSU Ice Rink. Puck is set to drop at 6:07 p.m. for the game on Friday and 1:07 p.m. on Saturday.
Owen Smith believes there has been a “sea change” in the Labour leadership contest with more people flocking to his campaign.Asked if he thought he could beat Jeremy Corbyn when the Labour leader appeared to be so popular with the membership base, Mr Smith told Sky News: “All we’ve seen so far is the evidence of a few rallies. There is a sea change. People are moving towards me because they want us to be a powerful opposition.”He also said that the booing of Sadiq Khan, who has backed Mr Smith, at a rally for Jeremy Corbyn should be “condemned”.He said: “I deplore the booing of Sadiq Khan. The booing is completely wrong and should be condemned by all of us. But is is a measure of how low we have sunk.” Owen Smith said he was “incredibly proud” to have the support of Ms Dugdale for his leadership bid.”Kezia and I want to see a strong Labour Party that can defeat the Tories in Westminster and take the fight to the SNP in Holyrood,” he said. Kezia Dugdale with Jeremy Corbyn in October 2015Credit:Reuters/Russell Cheyne And she had this warning for Mr Corbyn.”I don’t think Jeremy can unite our party and lead us into government. He cannot appeal to a broad enough section of voters to win an election. I believe Owen can.There will be some who think I should stay out of this contest, but now, more than ever, our party needs leaders who will stand up and be counted.”640,000 members receive ballot papers from todayThe first ballot papers went out today to the estimated 640,000 members and supporters who will decide whether Mr Corbyn carries on as leader or is replaced by his challenger Owen Smith.With many expected to cast their votes in the coming days, it could be a vital week in the contest – even though polling does not close until September 21.Mr Smith received a major boost over the weekend with London mayor Sadiq Khan urging Labour members to ditch Mr Corbyn and support the former work and pensions secretary.Owen Smith: ‘I’ll support Jeremy if he wins’Owen Smith believes there has been a “sea change” in the Labour leadership contest with more people flocking to his campaign.But he pledged to support Jeremy Corbyn if he is re-elected as leader.Speaking to Sky News the rival candidate said: “If Jeremy wins, I will absolutely support him from the backbenches. I will always be Labour. There’s not going to be any split that I’m a part of.” Comedian Billy Bragg, who is a Jeremy Corbyn supporter, has this to say about Kezia Dugdale’s support for Owen Smith. Owen Smith is addressing supporters in Porth, South Wales, this morning and has a stark warning about “the crisis facing the Labour movement”.He has shared his “frustrations” with the era of New Labour, perhaps in an appeal to Mr Corbyn’s supporters.

Labour leadership contender Owen Smith says there’s no point in hanging on to Labour’s values at the expense of everything else, if the party fails to put them into practise in government. Kezia Dugdale, who as the Scottish Labour leader is the party’s most highly elected female politician, has backed Owen Smith in the leadership contest.Writing for the Daily Record, she said:”Owen Smith gets my vote. I believe he can unite our party and move us on from the divisions that exist under the current leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.Owen understands that to have a chance of implementing Labour values, we need to win over some of those who didn’t vote for us at the last election.” Responding to Kezia Dugdale’s support for Owen Smith, a spokesman for the Scottish Labour for Jeremy campaign says:”Kezia has one vote, just like every other member of the Scottish Labour Party, but all the indications, both from canvassing and CLP nominations, are that a majority of Labour party members in Scotland will be backing Jeremy Corbyn.”The spokesman said Mr Corbyn had won the backing of 24 Scottish Labour Party CLPs compared with 15 for Mr Smith. 8:53AMOwen Smith ‘proud’ to have Kezia Dugdale’s backing Ms Dugdale told BBC Radio Scotland’s Good Morning Scotland programme that her decision to speak out “demonstrates how serious a situation the Labour Party is in”.She said: “I think that the Labour Party is in a very difficult position just now.”I think it is ugly, I think it is a real turn off to people across the country to see a party ripping itself apart and it’s my job to do what I can to get the party back on the front foot, to get its act together.” In a boost for Jeremy Corbyn, seven leaders from some of Britain’s biggest unions, including Len McCluskey, have written to the Guardian endorsing him as leader and urging their members to support him. His visit to Scotland follows comments made by Shadow Scottish Secretary and Blaydon MP Dave Anderson that Labour should consider a coalition with the SNP to prevent another Conservative victory at the next general election.But Mr Findlay told the Herald newspaper: “There will be no progressive alliance with the SNP and I’m expecting Jeremy Corbyn to rule that out this week.”I don’t think the SNP will be able to take any comfort from a Jeremy Corbyn victory. It will be made clear there will be no progressive alliance with the SNP.”The SNP does not act progressively in government, but seeks to talk progressively at Westminster where it has no power.”Providing a credible and socialist radical alternative to nationalism is what Jeremy is all about and we will be making an appeal to the people of Scotland on that basis.” She said: “Alex and I have different positions on the UK leadership contest just now. I think he was wrong to say what he said about the independence referendum.”But she said she and her deputy were “absolutely united and on the front foot” on promoting the party’s manifesto for tax increases to boost education. .@owensmith2016 arrives saying party has reached ‘important juncture’ as ballot papers are sent out pic.twitter.com/YXjtFS6rPS— Paul Brand (@PaulBrandITV) August 22, 2016 Owen SmithCredit:REX/Shutterstock Have seen what No Change candidates have done to Scottish Labour, you’d think Kezia Dugdale would baulk at endorsing another technocrat.— Billy Bragg (@billybragg) August 22, 2016 1:13PMCorbyn wins backing of seven union leaders 11:47AMSmith: Our values only matter if we can put them into practise in government Owen Smith has pledged to support Jeremy Corbyn if he is re-elected as Labour leader.Speaking to Sky News the rival candidate said: “If Jeremy wins, I will absolutely support him from the backbenches.

Those ballot papers are dropping on the doorsteps of Labour Party supporters and members across the country today. This campaign is very much alive.”Ms Dugdale, who told the programme her party’s membership was just under 23,000, insisted that she was “absolutely fine” with her deputy Alex Rowley, despite his backing for Mr Corbyn and recent comments that he would not oppose a second referendum on Scottish independence. Jeremy CorbynCredit:REX/Shutterstock “But that will only be achieved if we can unite our party and demonstrate we have a radical, credible plan to rebuild communities right across the United Kingdom.”I’m pleased therefore that Kezia has backed my vision for a £200 billion British new deal, the strengthening of workers’ rights and a Labour Party that puts tackling inequality at the heart of everything it does.” 12:20PMOwen Smith: ‘I will support Jeremy if he wins again’ 11:45AMCorbyn to rule out SNP ‘progressive alliance’ The first ballot papers go out today to the estimated 640,000 members and supporters who will decide whether Mr Corbyn carries on as leader or is replaced by his challenger Owen Smith.With many expected to cast their votes in the coming days, it could be a vital week in the contest – even though polling does not close until September 21.Mr Smith received a major boost over the weekend with London mayor Sadiq Khan urging Labour members to ditch Mr Corbyn and support the former work and pensions secretary. 8:05AM640,000 people to begin voting today Kezia Dugdale, the Scottish Labour leaderCredit:ANDY BUCHANAN/AFP/Getty Images Asked why anyone should listen to her after Labour came third in Scotland, Kezia Dugdale, the Scottish Labour leader, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme:”I actually think because we came third in Scotland that is the reason people should listen to me. I know what it takes to run a campaign. That leads me to the conclusion that Owen is better placed. I know what happens when a party repeatedly refuses to listen to the message from the electorate.”Ms Dugdale was asked whether she would stand next to Mr Corbyn if he is re-elected.”I speak to Jeremy all the time, I spoke to him yesterday and we have a good working relationship.”There’s no doubt that he is inspiring already committed Labour voters but there aren’t enough of those people to get us back in power.” In a scathing attack, Mr Khan said the Labour leader had lost the confidence of his MPs, failed to gain the trust and respect of the voters and was “extremely unlikely” to win a general election.The Corbyn camp described his comments as “disappointing” saying Mr Khan had won the mayoralty standing on a Labour platform under Mr Corbyn’s leadership – even though he largely kept his distance from Mr Corbyn during the campaign.There were jeers and boos when the London’ mayor’s name was mentioned at a mass rally of Mr Corbyn’s supporters in Kilburn, north London, on Sunday evening. 8:52AMKezia Dugdale defends her backing of Owen Smith 9:30AMKezia Dugdale says Labour’s situation is ‘ugly’ Jeremy Corbyn will rule out any prospect of a “progressive alliance” with the SNP when he visits Scotland later this week, according to a key ally.Neil Findlay MSP, chair of the Scottish Labour for Jeremy campaign, said he expected Mr Corbyn to dismiss the suggestion during a series of events north of the border.Islington North MP Mr Corbyn is due to meet leadership challenger Owen Smith for a hustings debate in Glasgow on Thursday before travelling to Edinburgh and Dundee to give speeches. 9:32AMBilly Bragg on Kezia Dugdale Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale backs Owen SmithKezia Dugdale, who as the Scottish Labour leader is the party’s most highly elected female politician, has backed Owen Smith in the leadership contest.Writing for the Daily Record, she said:”Owen Smith gets my vote.

3D sans lunettes : Apple obtient un brevetSelon le site CNET, le géant informatique a déposé un brevet pour un système de vision 3D sans lunettes. Apple affirme avoir trouvé la solution pour que plusieurs utilisateurs profitent en même temps d’un film ou d’un jeu en 3D, sans avoir à porter des lunettes spéciales. Jusqu’à maintenant il fallait se doter d’un équipement spécifique ou se trouver bien en face de l’écran, comme pour jouer à la console portable Nintendo 3DS.La firme à la pomme dévoile un nouveau système en déposant son dernier brevet : un capteur qui permettrait de détecter la position des yeux de chaque spectateur, de sorte que l’effet 3D soit restitué quel que soit l’angle de vision. La projection du fichier sur l’écran, doté d’une fonction de surface réflective, se voit donc modifiée.Le but recherché, selon CNET ? Développer des “systèmes d’affichage auto-stéréoscopiques 3D peu coûteux qui autorisent une liberté totale de mouvement”. Le 3 décembre 2010 à 11:25 • Emmanuel Perrin
Obésité : découverte d’un gène qui pousserait à trop mangerDes chercheurs américains sont parvenus à identifier un gène qui, s’il est muté, empêcherait l’organisme de signaler quand l’estomac est plein et conduirait donc à manger trop. La découverte pourrait aider à développer de nouveaux traitements contre l’obésité. Si de nombreuses études ont déjà suggéré que l’obésité et le surpoids pourraient avoir en partie une origine génétique, c’est une nouvelle preuve que viennent de révéler des chercheurs du Centre médical de l’université de Georgetown aux Etats-Unis. Ceux-ci ont identifié un gène qui pourrait expliquer pourquoi certaines personnes mangent plus qu’à leur faim. En vérité, ce gène appelé Bdnf avait déjà été associé à l’obésité mais les chercheurs ignoraient jusqu’ici comment celui-ci fonctionnait.Le Dr Baoki Xu et ses collègues ont observé que le gène Bdnf existait sous forme de deux variants, un “long” et un “court” dû à une mutation. Au cours des travaux publiés dans la revue Nature Medicine, ils ont donc observé deux groupes de souris, un dont les individus possédaient la version longue et l’autre avec la version courte de Bdnf. Ils ont ainsi constaté que les souris porteuses de la version courte mangeaient deux fois plus que leurs congénères et prenaient davantage de poids. D’après les résultats présentés, la mutation du gène empêcherait en fait la transmission des signaux qui indiquent normalement que l’estomac est plein.En effet, après un repas, le gène Bdnf contribuerait à transmettre des signaux chimiques jusqu’aux cellules nerveuses de l’hypothalamus, le centre qui contrôle entre autres la sensation de satiété. Les signaux transmis sont en réalité deux hormones, la leptine et l’insuline qui déclenchent au niveau de l’hypothalamus la production d’autres substances qui vont à leur tour transmettre le message indiquant que l’estomac est plein et donc qu’il faut stopper la sensation d’appétit.

En revanche, chez les autres rongeurs, les signaux atteignaient bien les neurones mais se retrouvaient ensuite bloqués et n’étaient pas transmis. “S’il y a un problème avec le gène Bdnf, les neurones ne peuvent pas se parler, les signaux leptine et insuline sont inefficaces et l’appétit n’est pas modifié”, explique le Dr Xu cité par le Daily Mail.Permettre aux signaux d’atteindre de nouveau leur cibleBien que l’expérience ait été menée uniquement chez la souris, il existe chez l’homme un gène similaire. Ainsi, “cette découverte pourrait ouvrir la voie à de nouvelles stratégies pour aider le cerveau à contrôler le poids du corps”, ajoute le chercheur. Le but d’un traitement potentiel serait alors de stimuler l’activité du gène Bdnf défaillant pour permettre aux signaux d’atteindre de nouveau leur cible. Un objectif confirmé par Tam Fry, porte-parole du National Obesity Forum : celui-ci a indiqué que les chercheurs étaient “sur la bonne piste” en suggérant que permettre au message de la leptine d’atteindre le cerveau était la clé pour supprimer l’appétit.Néanmoins, “beaucoup d’autres sont également sur cette même piste en espérant trouver le traitement magique pour prévenir ou guérir l’obésité. Naturellement, Xu est excité d’être arrivé là où il est arrivé mais réparer la mutation pourrait ne pas être facile. Et même si elle est réparée chez la souris, il faudra des années avant que sa solution ne puisse être utilisée chez l’humain”, commente ce spécialiste.Le 19 mars 2012 à 18:01 • Maxime Lambert
In the heat of the World Cup tournament, Croatia and Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has taken his time to thank Cristiano Ronaldo for his extraordinary contribution to the club as he regrets the star forward’s departure to Juventus.The Portuguese international Ronaldo signed a stunning €100million transfer deal to the Serie A champions earlier this week, bringing an end to his successful nine-season stay at Real Madrid.Ronald left with a high ovation as Los Blancos’ all-time top scorer and a four-time Champions League winner with the team he joined in 2009.As he prepares to captain Croatia for World Cup final on Sunday Modric, admitted his disappointment over the exit of Ronaldo. Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.✅ The captain of the #WorldCup finalists.#FlamingPride #Croatia #Vatreni? pic.twitter.com/tgO9odhonW— HNS | CFF (@HNS_CFF) July 12, 2018“My wish was for Cristiano to stay. He is unique and it is a pity he has left,” the 32-year-old told reporters after Croatia’s semi-final win over England and quoted in FourFourTwo.“I thank him for everything he did at Real Madrid. I wish him all the best except when he is playing against Madrid.”
Former Real Madrid striker Fernando Morientes has predicted a bright future for young winger Vinicius Junior can following his excellent displays in the Spanish capital.The Brazilian has become a regular in Los Blancos following the absence of Gareth Bale and Isco who has fallen down Solari’s pecking order.The 18-year-old who completed a €45million move to Madrid in July 2018 scored his second La Liga goal of the season in Sunday’s 3-0 victory over Deportivo Alaves.8 – Vinícius Júnior has been involved in eight goals for @realmadriden in Copa del Rey this season (two goals and six assists), more than any other LaLiga player.

I think he’s a very impressive player, he’s very good in one-on-ones and making runs.“He’s still very young, we need time to see the kind of player he will be but if he continues to play the way he is now he’ll be a world-class player, no doubt.“We should give him time though, you can’t burden such a young player with too much responsibility especially at a club like Real Madrid.”Morientes says Vinicius reminds him of Savio – the former winger who claimed three Champions League crowns with Madrid around the turn of the century.La Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“Obviously Savio was a little older but they have similar traits; daring, pace on the ball and one-on-one ability,” added Morientes.“And they’re both Brazilians, of course. Both came from a very different football style in Brazil, but they adapted quickly.“So I’d say Vinicius reminds me of Savio, for their playing style and their position out on the left.”📊| Only Karim Benzema (23), Gareth Bale (16) and Sergio Ramos (11) have been involved in more goals than Vinícius Júnior (10) for Real Madrid in all competitions this season. #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/h99QaSxjKL— Real Madrid News (@onlyrmcfnews) February 4, 2019Morientes a former teammate of Solari at the Santiago Bernabeu had some kind words for the Argentine gaffer.He said: “Solari was a great team-mate. A very nice, friendly guy.“He liked to joke around. But he was also a very hard worker, a top professional, the kind of guy you always want in your team both when he’s playing and when he’s not.“He always contributed, and not just on the pitch. A great player and a great team-mate, both on and off the pitch.”
