first_imgTOTTENHAM’s £27m new boy Steven Bergwijn announced himself to Spurs fans with a stunning strike on his debut against Manchester City.And the Dutch forward will be looking to maintain his scoring streak with the North London giants, as he continues to settle at his new club.13 Steven Bergwijn scored on his Spurs debut against Man CityCredit: Getty Images – Getty13 Bergwijn owes his career to supportive dad, JurgenCredit: Instagram @j_bergwijnOne attribute that stood out in the 2-0 win over Pep Guardiola’s side was 22-year-old Bergwijn’s close control when under pressure.It’s a skill he can thank his dedicated dad for, who religiously tossed balls high up in the air for his young son to try and bring down instantly.The fleet-forward wide man is also no stranger to living the high-life, driving top-of-range Mercedes cars and dating a glamorous missus.But he had to work hard to achieve his dreams of earning a Premier League move.He comes from a loving family – and two years ago shared a cheeky photo on Instagram of himself as a kid with a can of Heineken.CRUYFF COURTWhen Bergwijn was just seven, his early promise saw him scouted by Ajax.After training, he would make his way home to Almere – some 18 miles form Amsterdam and head straight to Cruyff Court.At the tiny turf pitch, he would be joined by Surinam-born dad Jurgen, who would put his boy through his paces.”He’d toss the ball up in the air, like, way, way, waaaay up — and I’d have to bring it down under control in different ways,” Bergwijn told The Players’ Tribune.13 Bergwijn shared this photo on Instagram of him as a child with a can of HeinekenCredit: Instagram @stevenbergwijn13 Dad Jurgen Bergwijn has even more tattoos than his famous sonCredit: Instagram @j_bergwijn”Sometimes on my chest, sometimes with my feet. Because I was a bit smaller than the other kids, my dad knew that winning the ball in the air wasn’t going to be easy for me.”So he’d toss it up, and I’d bring it down. Over and over and over again.”A FATHER’S SACRIFICEAt the age of 13 Bergwijn moved to PSV after falling out with an Ajax coach, and the aspiring footballer became even more reliant upon his dad.Jurgen Bergwijn would drive nearly two hours to get his son to Eindhoven, sleep in the academy’s car park, then drive Steven back.”When I left Ajax at 13 years old to play with PSV, my dad became the only way I could get to Eindhoven to train with my new club,” he said.”Every weekday, we’d wake up at 5:30 a.m, eat breakfast, get in the car, and drive an hour and 45 minutes to Eindhoven for a 9:00 a.m training session.”I’d do all the things my dad taught me on the pitch while, about 200 yards away, he slept in the car in the parking lot. Then I’d come over, knock on the glass, and we’d drive all the way back and I’d go to school.”We did that for nearly two years. Two years.”That was the sacrifice my dad, and my whole family — my mom, sister and brother — made for me.13 Both Bergwijn’s parents were originally from SurinamCredit: Instagram @j_bergwijn13 Bergwijn always had the support of his brother and sister as he worked hard to become a footballerCredit: Instagram @j_bergwijn”They’d make that drive, too, to come watch games and support me whenever they could.”Eventually we moved to Eindhoven and the commute became a lot shorter, and the sleeping in the car finally stopped.”BECOMING A PRO BRINGS ITS TRAPPINGSBergwijn was an established player in the PSV team by the age of 18.And soon he began to enjoy the trappings of what being a top-class footballer brings.While he doesn’t boast a Neymar-like entourage, he does like his cars.His preferred choice of motor is Mercedes, and he’s been seen behind the wheel of a AMG GLE 63 worth around £120,000.Recently, Bergwijn also added a G Wagon to his car collection that has a starting price of around £93,000.Both cars won’t look out of place in North London’s poshest abodes, where the Tottenham and Arsenal’s football elite reside.13 After breaking into PSV’s first team, Bergwijn invested in some nice wheelsCredit: Instagram @stevenbergwijn13 Bergwijn shared a snap on Instagram with his Mercedes AMG GT 63 worth around £120kCredit: Instagram @stevenbergwijn13 Recently, Bergwijn added a £93k Mercedes G Wagon to his garageCredit: Instagram @stevenbergwijnA GIRL CALLED CHLOEBergwijn has reportedly been in a romance with stunning 21-year-old Chloe Jay since 2015.The fashionable Wag is a dancer, model and social media influencer with over 50,000 followers on Instagram.Latest Football featuresHOUSE OF GODMaradona’s teenage home now a quirky museum made to look like it was in 1978TIM VICKERYCunha’s goals for Hertha Berlin show he can succeed Firmino & Jesus for BrazilMAN THEY’RE BADMan Utd’s worst kits include vintage green and gold shirt & ‘cursed’ greyLewdicrousInside Lewandowski’s £7m flat in Poland with private cinema and a golf simulatorExclusiveTIM VICKERYBarcelona target Martinez stood out as a teen because of his talent and graftGONE TO THE DOGSGrealish, Sterling & Noble among Prem stars protected by £25k guard dogsMALIBU STANArsenal owner Kroenke’s £20m Malibu home where Princess Di was set to move inGROOM-ALDORonaldo’s hairstyles through the years, from blond highlights to tight top knotShe often shares snippets of her life online to fans, whether it’s onboard a private yacht in a glamorous holiday setting or getting ready to dine in a posh restaurant – she’s got the art of being a Wag down to a tee.And shortly after Christmas, Chloe stunned fans when she revealed she was expecting the pair’s first child together – a baby boy.They even threw a special party with their loved ones to celebrate the good news.13 Bergwijn dates stunning model Chloe JayCredit: Instagram @chloejaylois13 Jay is an influencer who boasts over 50,000 followers on InstagramCredit: Instagram @chloejaylois13 Jay has taken to Wag life, enjoying the trappings of expensive beach holidaysCredit: Instagram @chloejaylois13 This year Jay and Bergwijn will be welcoming their first child togetherCredit: Instagram @chloejaylois View this post on Instagram As many of you know i’m pregnant and expecting a little baby boy, I have not shared much about it yet, there are many reasons for that. I find it difficult to share things about my private life because everyone has their opinion, and not everyone always has the best intentions. I have also been sick and having a hard time that is why I try to find my rest as much as possible. That’s the reason why I have been so absent lately. I hope you guys respect that, I am working on myself to becoming the best mom I can be. I want to thank you all for the sweet messages and the support you always give me. Very grateful for that. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and you are coming to bright up my/our life👼🏽. After 4 years we are blessed with a mini us.

Photo from Fiba.comThe Philippines hosting the 2023 Fiba World Cup is still be five years away, but San Miguel coach Leo Austria still expects June Mar Fajardo to be a major part of the national team at that time.“[2023] is still a long time and there will be a lot of changes that might happen. It depends during that span of time on the players that will develop, but definitely, I think June Mar Fajardo will be a candidate when that time comes,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Still at the peak of his powers, Fajardo is still a mainstay on coach Chot Reyes’ roster for the 2019 Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers with his resume boosted by his accomplishments in the PBA as a four-time MVP and a five-time champion.And barring any major injuries, Austria is expecting the Cebuano giant to continue having no letups in the growth of his game as the buildup for the country’s hosting of the global basketball extravaganza approaches.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkFajardo will be 33 years old by 2023.Austria also acknowledged that Reyes has an abundance of talent at his disposal with 7-footers Kai Sotto and AJ Edu both part of the “23-for-23” cadet pool.

You can never know what will happen,” Austria said.That’s why Austria has his full belief that Fajardo will still be donning the national tri-colors come 2023.“Maybe if June Mar wins a fifth of sixth MVP, they will think about it,” he said. “We want nothing but to help Gilas be better because they’re representing our homeland.”ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson View comments Go for Gold adds Kent Salado MOST READ LATEST STORIES OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Meralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

first_imgLANCASTER – An ex-convict and a state prison inmate face life in prison without the possibility of parole after being convicted of murdering two Antelope Valley men in a 2003 car-to-car shooting. William Hogan, 39, and Robert Campos, 25, were convicted of killing the two 27-year-old men – Richard David House of California City and James MacArthur Madden of Lancaster – and wounding a woman who was riding in their car at Avenue J-8 and 12th Street West. “The motive was never presented at trial. It never came out in evidence,” Deputy District Attorney Benny Osorio said. “It may have been drug-related, but we don’t know.” A Los Angeles Superior Court jury deliberated about two days before deciding Monday that Hogan and Campos are guilty of murder and attempted murder. Jurors also convicted Hogan of felony evasion of arrest and Campos of being a felon with a firearm. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Prosecutors decided not to seek the death penalty. Sentencing for the two men was set for May 12. The victims’ Ford Taurus sedan was making a turn at the intersection on Aug. 6, 2003, when a second car pulled alongside and at least one person inside began shooting. Campos is already in prison for drugs and weapons offenses. Hogan, a Palmdale construction worker, was chased down and arrested nine days after the slayings. He fled from sheriff’s deputies first in a vehicle on city streets, then on foot in backyards. Hogan has a prison record dating back to 1991 for crimes involving drugs, vehicle theft and possession of stolen property. last_img read more

first_imgThe Government have launched a new initiative aimed at tackling the alarming levels of obesity in Ireland, with experts suggesting Ireland are on course to be the fattest nation in the world per capita. The government plan to tax fizzy drinks, while PE has been introduced as a subject on the Leaving Certificate.However, health experts predict that a levy on those who like fizzy drinks will do little to tackle the serious issue of obesity in Ireland. Minister for Health Simon Harris, issued the stark warning that Ireland risks becoming the fattest nation in the world unless some radical changes are made.Minister Harris said obesity is a ‘ticking time-bomb’ and said in some regards the bomb has already been detonated.National eating guidelines, calorie posting legislation and the prioritization of obesity services within HSE plans form part of the plan, which will be implemented over the next decade.A clinical lead to guide obesity policy within the health service will be appointed and a “whole of school” approach to healthy lifestyles is promised in collaboration with the Department of Education. A report in The Irish Times relayed the following information: Sixty per cent of Irish adults, and one in four children, are overweight or obese. The cost to society is estimated at more than €1 billion a year.The State’s foremost obesity expert, Prof Donal O’Shea, said the plan “could not be more different” from the 2006 report of the national obesity taskforce, on which he served. “That plan was dead in the water within the year and we weren’t even allowed hold a meeting to discuss it.”The current plan contains specific targets and timelines and the appetite for tackling obesity is much greater, he said. While he was not happy the sugar tax was not being introduced quickly, he recognised the need for compromise.Prof O’Shea said there are 300 people waiting for weight-reducing surgery in his clinic in Loughlinstown and 150 in another clinic in Galway. This year, he will perform 40 surgeries, the highest number so far, and a second surgeon may be appointed shortly.Mr Harris said there was no question of the plan having been watered down to suit the food industry. The Government was not ruling out legislation in the area, but wanted to begin with a collaborative approach. Legislation requiring restaurants to post the calorie content of meals will be law by the end of next year, his officials confirmed.Minister of State for Health Promotion Marcella Corcoran Kennedy said the new document was a plan with specific timelines and “not designed to sit on the shelf”.Ms Corcoran Kennedy acknowledged she has had to adjust her lifestyle to deal with weight issues. “I never thought I’d look forward to the day when I was overweight, by no longer being obese but I’m on the way there.”Ireland well on course to be the fattest nation in the world was last modified: September 23rd, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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)last_img read more

first_imgManchester United defeated Leicester City 2-1 on the 2018/19 season opening day1- Jose Mourinho doing his best to drop super star manager demeanour:The criticism the former self styled Special One meted on his players in the aftermath of their 1-4 International Champions Cup drubbing at the hands of Liverpool pointed to a great coach trapped in  glory of yesteryear.It was a ‘Me Against Those Hopeless Players’ mentality that had dogged his rival Pep Guardiola in his maiden season at the Etihad.Friday night witnessed a wiser Mourinho  burying the hatchet with star midfielder Paul Pogba.  Handing a start to the Frenchman just four days after he reported to duty following Les Bleus World Cup triumph,  then crowning it by bestowing upon him the United captaincy showed Mourinho  is rediscovering the mojo that helped him transform average players into world beaters.2- Step Up From Championship Not Too Steep:Leicester City attacking midfielder James Maddison yet again underlined how exaggerated the gulf in quality between Premier League players and their Championship counterparts is.Featuring in his first EPL appearance since a £22m move from Norwich City, Maddison outshone United’s £47m Brazilian Fred and team mate Ricardo Pereira in the battle of newcomers. He even kept Jamie Vardy, another player who made a seamless transition from Championship journeyman to Premier League star, on the bench.3- Ben Chillwell For England:Watching in the Old Trafford stands was England boss Gareth Southgate and his assistant Steve Holland.They will have noted with satisfaction left backs Luke Shaw, who scored his first senior career goal, and his opposite Chillwell, whose marauding runs into United’s half were from the top drawer. Southgate has identified a successor to Ashley Young.4- Daniel Amartey Pantomime Villain:Watching from an African focal point, i found Leicester City’s  Ghanaian defender appalling. How cavalier can a player get? In addition to conceding a needless spot kick right from kick off, Amartey was all over the place throughout 60 forgettable minutes. By the time he was replaced by Rachid Ghezzal, I was sick of the sight of him.This is a player who can benefit from a loan move elsewhere.Comments Tags: leicester cityMan Utoplast_img read more
