“I will never train United just like I will never train Madrid”

first_imgPep Guardiola is not sure what his future will be when his contract with Manchester City expires. However, he does have a couple of ideas about what he does not want to do. The Spanish coach was asked about the possibility of directing the eternal rival of his current team and his response was clear: “After training Manchester City I will not train Manchester United. Nor would I train Real Madrid. Definitely not.” Premier League* Data updated as of January 7, 2020 Discarded the Manchester United and at the same time he took the opportunity to deny that in the future he would consider sitting on the bench of the Real Madrid, the eternal rival of Barcelona, team of his loves.After his response, they soon put forward the hypothesis about what he would do if the only offer he had in his hands was that of the red devils. Guardiola, who already took a sabbatical year, recognized that he would play golf waiting for a new proposal and would like to travel to the Maldives: “If I didn’t have offers I would be in the Maldives. Well, maybe not in the Maldives, because they don’t have golf courses.”It has long been said that the Spaniard will not continue in charge of the City when his contract expires in 2021 and it has even been published that there is a clause by which both could separate their paths ahead of time.last_img read more

Going postal?

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Americans will pay an extra 2 cents to mail a first-class letter as part of a rate increase that takes effect today. The price of a stamp for 1-ounce first-class letters rises to 39 cents . The 5.4 percent, across-the-board hike affects all postal rates and fees, including certified mail, delivery confirmation, money orders, return receipts and bulk mail. The largest fixed-rate increases raise Priority Mail 20 cents to $4.05; the rate for a half-pound Express Mail parcel increases 75 cents to $14.40; and Express Mail up to 2 pounds rises 95 cents to $18.80. International rates also are affected. The rate hikes are the result of a federal law, passed in 2003, which mandated the postal service place $3.1 billion in an escrow account by Sept. 30. But if Congress had a specific reason to ask for that sum of money, so far they’re not telling. “They \ tell us within 180 days what the purpose of that account would be,” said USPS spokesman Gerry McKiernan. “They have not told us yet.” There has been speculation the funds may be designated for retirement and/or pension funds, but no official determination has been made. For Covina resident George Lewis, 30, those extra 2 cents won’t hurt because he doesn’t mail too many letters. “Everything’s going up,” Lewis said. “It’s not a surprise.” For a mail-order business like El Monte-based Daydeal.com, an online retailer of mobile telephone accessories, it can be different. At times the company ships more than 500 packages in a single day and offers free shipping to customers. “For us it’s only a small increase and we appreciate the postal service,” said Daydeal general manager Warren Kong. “But it will affect the bottom line. We’re not going to raise our prices because the postal rate went up.” The U.S. Postal Service, a self-funded federal agency that generates its revenue from the sale of postage, products and services, delivers 206 billion pieces of mail and has annual revenues that exceed $69 billion. The last domestic rate increase was in 2002. International rates have not changed since 2001. A non-denominated 39-cent Lady Liberty and U.S. flag stamp, released in December, will be the transitional stamp and a Navajo Jewelry 2-cent stamp, released in 2004, may be used with existing 37-cent stamps. from 37 cents by Congress lafayette.hight@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2764last_img read more
