Wenger I am very sad to leave the club with that

first_imgArsene Wenger was left to rue the missed opportunities Arsenal had in their defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-finals on what he described as a “very sad” way to leave the clubThe Gunners squandered several good chances in last week’s first leg at the Emirates against a 10-man Atletico side and they were once again guilty of failing to take advantage of their opportunities in Thursday’s return leg at Madrid.Arsenal was made to pay a high price for their inability to convert their chances with Diego Costa coming back to haunt the club once more by scoring the only goal at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano to secure a 2-1 aggregate win for Atletico.“We missed something in the final third because we had plenty of opportunities,” said Wenger, according to Sky Sports.“You look at the chances we created in the two games, the least you can say is we can be very frustrated. In the first game the tie should be over, then the second game in the first half we had plenty of opportunities but we always missed something with the final ball, even in the second half.“I am like the team, very sad and very disappointed. Overall very frustrated too because when you go out of a competition and you have the performance in 180 minutes that we had it’s very difficult to take.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.The defeat means that Wenger will not have the dream ending of finally winning in Europe with Arsenal now missing out on Champions League football for a second consecutive season.“There are some good ingredients in our team and they will bounce back, they have the quality and with the right additions in the summer the team will compete next year,” said the 68-year-old.“I am very sad to leave the club with that exit. I will take some time to recover from that and then see what I do with myself in the future, I have no plan at the moment.”The Frenchman admitted that Atletico had defended well in the second leg with the Spanish side having now gone 12 games without conceding at their home ground.“They are a team who defends well,” admitted Wenger.“We were a bit unlucky a few times and Gabi is happy to stay on the pitch as they broke a few counter-attacks and it took the referee a while to give a yellow to Gabi in situations where we could have been very dangerous. But overall they are a clever side who defends well, [Diego] Godin tonight saved five or six balls on crosses in amazing positions, they have great defenders.”last_img read more

BPL 1m Theft Probe Finds Payments To Fake Firms

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, May 26, 2017 – Nassau – Four Bahamas Power and Light employees have been suspended and one person has been terminated pending an investigation into the theft of nearly $1m at the power company.According to a source close to the matter, the employees were accused of “orchestrating an elaborate scheme” over the course of one year, that allegedly involved fake companies and forged cheques. At least one bank employee was also allegedly involved in the plot and is being investigated.According to the source, BPL conducted an internal audit but forensic accountants are also being brought in to “ensure” transparency.“BPL uses external vendors frequently,” the source said. “What we understand is that the employees are accused of sending in invoices from fake companies, getting a cheque for the amount and then using someone in the bank to cash the cheques.Attorney Wayne Munroe, who is representing one of the employees, said he feels the government is under pressure to live up to promises of accountability and prosecution of those found stealing public funds. He warned that “public pressure can ruin people’s lives that money cannot compensate for.”“My client is on paid leave and as far as I know she has not been terminated,” Mr. Munroe stated.“I have been hearing so many different stories. They are saying payments went out to vendors and no work was done, but they are also saying the funds were missing. Well that isn’t missing funds, you know where the money is, that is fraud. We need to be careful, the last time the government changed they charged a woman at Bahamas Electricity Corporation, put her through court and she was acquitted and they had to pay her.”, he said.Senior Assistant Commissioner of Police Stephen Dean confirmed that several persons have been questioned in relation to missing funds but said on Sunday that no one was in police custody and no one has been charged.
