first_imgMauricio Pochettino insists he has the full backing of Daniel Levy despite his horror week as Tottenham boss.Spurs were hammered by Bayern Munich 7-2 before another crushing 3-0 defeat at Brighton.1 Mauricio Pochettino has insisted he has the full backing of Daniel LevyCredit: EPABut under-pressure Pochettino claims conceding ten goals in the last week has not changed his relationship with chairman Levy.Speaking at the Aspire Global in Qatar on Monday, Pochettino said: “We maintain a very good relationship and it is extraordinary to have that support.“I have always told him that in addition to my chairman, I consider him a friend.””Football is not a drama, it is passion and we cannot separate it from emotions. But neither can we make a sport as fantastic as this one because of the latest result.”We must learn from defeats to be able to exceed our limits and that begins by accepting that you don’t always win and that the opponent also works hard and makes merits. You must always react with dignity to the result, regardless of whether it is good or bad.”Pochettino had earlier insisted he can take all the criticism coming his way.The Argentinian said: “After five-and-a-half-years, the last five days we really were punched, in football terms, 7-2 and 3-0.“The most important thing now is to have two weeks to try to be clear, to find a solution.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for him“The pundits on television need to talk and they need to give their opinion.

Teachers unions call for a strike on Friday

first_imgThe High School Teachers’ Association (APSE) called for a national strike on Friday and from 11 am  teachers will meet in La Hispanidad roundabout, East of San José, to march to Casa Presidencial where they expect to deliver a list of demands to President Laura Chinchilla.APSE president Beatriz Ferreto said the goal is to mark the international day of women and also “criticize labor policies and changes the government intends to apply in salary bonuses and incentives.”The government through a press release sent from the Labor Ministry dismissed the strike call and said they have been open to dialogue with union groups. “We do not understand how it is that unions’ representatives are calling for a strike Friday, when they formally confirmed that on Thursday they will be presenting a proposal to improve salary policies, and now they call for a strike without even sitting at the table to discuss the document,” said Labor Minister, Olman Segura Bonilla in the statement.Ferreto even asked parents not to send their children to schools, as “all the country’s teachers will join the protest.” However other teachers’ unions as the National Association of Educators and the Costa Rican Education Union have not yet confirmed whether they will participate in the march.The purported draft bill would cut extra salary incentives that are exclusive to educators, including higher severance pay than most public workers, annuities, extra pay for work outside of the classroom (grading homework at home, for example), and “exclusivity” pay, which is a salary bonus so that teachers don’t take a second job.
