first_imgTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says it’s a “gift” for his team to play at Wembley after their extended stay at the stadium.The North London club has had issues with their new stadium, meaning they have to play at Wembley longer than they anticipated, and Pochettino has praised the England national stadium and says it’s an ‘honor’ to be playing there.“Everyone who is there is entitled to give their opinion. If you ask me, I am so, so happy to play at Wembley,” Pochettino told Sky Sports.“When I was born in Argentina and heard about England for the first time, it was with all the problems with the Falklands – it was very sad news when I heard it for the first time when I was in Argentina in my hometown.“Then when I arrived in Europe and when I played the World Cup against England (in 1998), and then after when I arrived at Southampton six years ago, I changed my mind completely in the way I see this country.“For me, it’s an honor to be here and a pleasure to be here. I have discovered amazing people and an amazing country – very close to us.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“We are always comparing Argentina with Spain and Italy, but we have more [similarities] with English people than maybe Spain or Italy.“When you, like we, love football, always you hear about Wembley. It was always a dream to play at Wembley. I played with the national team in 2000 at the old Wembley. It was a dream come true.“Now every week or two weeks we have the possibility to play at Wembley. For me, it’s a gift.“When I take the north circular when I look and see the [arch], I say thank you because every game I play at Wembley is a gift.“We always say, one game more, how lucky we are. For me, it’s the best place in the world to play football, and of course, after that will be shared with our new stadium as the best place to play.“Of course, the disappointment from our fans, I understand. But for me, I take it as a positive to play there and a gift that I want to enjoy every time I’m there.”last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: The state Agriculture Marketing department has set a target of setting up as many as 150 Sufal Bangla stalls by March 2019, after becoming successful in reaching its goal of opening 101 stalls.It may be mentioned that the department had set a target of setting up 101 Sufal Bangla stalls before Durga Puja. Recently, 21 movable and 5 static Sufal Bangla stalls have been inaugurated, which took the total number of such stalls to 101 across the state.

Subsequently, the decision has been taken to introduce another 50 stalls by the end of the 2018-19 financial year.Tapan Dasgupta, the state Agriculture Marketing minister, said: “Our endeavour is to open another 50 stalls by the end of March 2019.”The main idea behind setting up Sufal Bangla stalls is to help common people staying in the urban or semi-urban parts of the state get fresh vegetables at the right price. At the same time, it also encourages setting up of more Farmers Production Organisations (FPOs). Farmers, who are members of the FPOs, directly supply their produce to the Sufal Bangla stalls that get sold at the right price. As a result, farmers no longer need any middlemen to sell their produce. They also get the right price for their produce and do not incur loss.

After checking the price, one can also place order over phone for home delivery, which is available in some of the stalls. The department is also taking steps to introduce the home delivery service in all of its stalls.last_img read more
