Mourinho challenges Klopp to explain Sh10.4bn signing of van Dijk

first_imgBut Mourinho reminded Klopp about his comments when United bought Pogba for a then world record fee of Sh12.4bn (£89m) from Juventus in the summer of 2016.The German said then: ‘Other clubs can go out and spend more money and collect top players, yes. But if you bring one player in for Sh13.9bn (£100m) or whatever, and he gets injured, then it all goes through the chimney.READ: Mourinho challenges Klopp to explain Sh10.4bn signing of Virgil van Dijk after Liverpool boss criticised £89m outlay for Paul Pogba“Do I have to do it differently to that? Actually, I want to do it differently. I would even do it differently if I could spend that money. I want a special team spirit – I don’t feel it is necessary, I want it,” he said.“The day that this is football, I’m not in a job anymore. Because the game is about playing together.”Virgil van Dijk became the most expensive player in history, costing Liverpool Sh10.4bn (£75m). Photo/COURTESYMourinho seized the opportunity to take issue with Klopp when asked about the Van Dijk deal at his weekly press conference on Friday, with a thinly veiled accusation of hypocrisy.“I think the one to speak about it in a specific way has to be Jurgen, and if I was one of you I would ask him about his comments about one year ago,” he added.“Virgil van Dijk is the most expensive defender in history of football. Is he better than (Paolo) Maldini, (Giuseppe) Bergomi or (Rio) Ferdinand? You cannot say that, is just the way the market is and you pay or you don’t pay.”“If you pay obviously you pay a crazy amount of money but if you don’t you don’t have the player. Is as simple as that, so no critics at all about what Liverpool did, is just the way it is. But not speaking specifically about that case because in Liverpool they do what they want to do and I am nobody to comment on what they do.”“The reality is that if they think that the player is the right player for them and they really want the player, they pay his amount or they don’t have the player because that is the way the market is at that time.”“So when we compare now the amount of money certain managers and clubs spend, you cannot compare the realities.”–By Daily Mail-0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mourinho seized the opportunity to take issue with Klopp when asked about the Van Dijk deal at his weekly press conference on Friday, with a thinly veiled accusation of hypocrisy.LONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 29 – Jose Mourinho has challenged Jurgen Klopp to explain Liverpool spending Sh10.4 bn (£75m) on Virgil van Dijk after the Anfield boss criticised Manchester United’s world record signing of Paul Pogba last year.Van Dijk will become the most expensive defender in history when he completes his move to Liverpool from Southampton next week.last_img read more

Mice like people like to be rocked to sleep

Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*) By Mary BeckmanJan. 24, 2019 , 12:00 PM The researchers did not look for a benefit of rocking on memory, which a related study suggests is a benefit for humans. The mice showed other differences from people as well; the rodents like to be rocked about four times faster than we do, for example. These differences might reflect the fact that mice carry their pups around in their mouths, which has a lulling effect, rather than rocking them in their arms like humans. But the researchers say it’s too early to speculate on shared evolutionary mechanisms.More intriguingly, mice that lacked a key part of the vestibular system called otoliths—teensy stones that sense linear acceleration—did not get any benefit at all from being rocked at bedtime, confirming the vestibular system’s central role in the effect, the team reports today in Current Biology.The results might lead to better noninvasive treatments for sleep disorders, the researchers say. For example, understanding how the brain uses the “rocking signal” to promote sleep might usher in alternatives such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, which uses electrical impulses to stimulate nerve cells and has been used to treat other brain disorders such as depression.

Country Email Forget the running wheel. If your pet mouse is an insomniac, what it really needs is a hammock. New research shows that mice, just like humans, fall asleep faster with a gentle sway.Mild rocking helps both adults and children fall asleep faster and experience deeper, longer sleep. Scientists have suspected that the human vestibular system—the bits of the inner ear that keep us balanced and oriented in space—are involved, but there’s been no solid proof.So, in the new study, researchers put mouse cages on rocking platforms, monitored the animals’ brain activity, and measured how well they slept. The rodents slept 12% longer with rocking than without, and they fell asleep 51% faster if they had been sleep-deprived. But their brain signals did not indicate a deeper sleep.
