Michael Carrick Hails Jose Mourinho As Managerial ‘Great’ Alongside Alex Ferguson


Michael Carrick says Jose Mourinho is in an elite group alongside Alex Ferguson as one of the greatest managers of the past 30 years despite his current problems at Old Trafford. The former midfielder, 37, took up a coaching role at the end of last season after a distinguished playing career at West Ham, Tottenham and United. Mourinho will be hoping last weekend’s thrilling 3-2 comeback win against Newcastle sparks a revival after a dismal run of results saw United slip well off the pace in the Premier League and exit the League Cup.

Carrick told Britain’s Press Association that the most striking thing about the Portuguese boss was his track record in winning trophies over many years.

“He’s managed to win trophies at United,” said Carrick. “We’re striving now to get back to it, but as a manager you can’t hide from the fact about what he’s done. It’s up there with the very best.

“Fortunately for me, you look at the best managers over the last 25-30 years. You’re picking the top three, top five — two of them you’d say Jose or Sir Alex are right up there.

“I’ve been lucky enough to experience that and take what I can from both of them.”

Carrick is hoping to become a manager in his own right and said he was trying to “learn from the great Jose Mourinho at close quarters”.

Carrick’s contemporaries Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard have already embarked on managerial careers.

“You look at Frank (Lampard at Derby) and I know Stevie (Gerrard) has done a year with the younger lads at Liverpool, but he’s gone straight in at Rangers and it looks like it comes natural to them.

“I’m in my position as I am at the moment and it feels good for me, so we’ll see what the future brings.”

Usman Khawaja Knock ‘One Of The Great Test Innings’, Says Tim Paine


“I am just really proud of the whole group, how they stuck to our plans and kept digging in. I am really proud of Usman, too, on one of the great Test innings,” said Paine.

“No, it doesn’t feel like a win. We were outplayed. Proud to get something out of it, but we can play a lot better in the next Test,” said Paine, with the second and final Test starting in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

Khawaja, whose best score was 26 in five previous Tests in Asia, admitted it was one of the best innings of his career.

“I normally never sweat through my shirt, but my shirt was drenched and my pants were drenched. That took it out of me a fair bit. I’ve never had an innings like that,” he said.

“To bat that long a period in Asia – it is a bit different. It shows a lot of guts and courage to do something like that,” added Khawaja, whose 524-minute knock was the second longest in a fourth innings in Test history.

‘Worked my backside off’ 

Former England opening batsman Michael Atherton holds the record after his match-saving 185 not out against South Africa in Johannesburg in 1995 spanned 645 minutes.

Khawaja, who was born in Pakistan but emigrated to Australia in his childhood, said he was proud to have scored a hundred for his adopted country.

“It was mostly about getting a hundred for Australia on the last day of a match, trying to save a game. A lot of work goes into playing cricket at the highest level,” he said. 

“I work as hard as anyone. I have worked my backside off for the past 10 years, day in, day out.”

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed was also full of praise for Khawaja.

“I think I have seen one of the best innings in Test cricket, especially in the fourth innings. The way he batted he took Australia to a draw and played all his shots,” said Sarfraz.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah, who took only four wickets in the match, was defended by his skipper after Pakistan failed to close out victory. 

“He (Yasir) had played the first Test after a year so you have to give him some margin (for error). He is our match-winner so, hopefully, he will bowl better in the next game,” said Sarfraz of Yasir, who went wicketless in the first innings.

“Look when we came today we were confident to win the Test, they fought hard and saved it and that’s the beauty of Test cricket.”

Nikki Haley A Great Advocate Of India-US Relationship, Say Indian-Americans


Nikki Haley, the first-ever Indian-American in any US presidential cabinet, resigned yesterday (File)

Washington: 

Nikki Haley, who resigned as the US Ambassador to the United Nations, has been a great advocate of the India-US relationship and actively engaged with Indian-Americans, according to eminent community members, who believe she would soon emerge in a stronger role given her nationwide popularity.

Ms Haley, the first-ever Indian-American in any US presidential cabinet, surprised many when she announced her resignation on Tuesday.

US President Donald Trump has accepted the 46-year-old Ms Haley’s resignation. She will stay in the job till the year end. Her successor will be nominated and hopefully confirmed by the Senate by that time.

“Nikki Haley has been one the most successful Indian-American politicians. She has been a relentless supporter of strong US-India partnership,” Mukesh Aghi of the US India Strategic and Partnership Forum (USISPF) said.

“We will definitely miss her presence in the current administration where she was seen as a true champion of US-India alliance. We also believe she will re-emerge soon in a stronger position because she has a very bright future,” Mr Aghi told news agency PTI.

Silicon Valley-based top Indian-American venture capitalist and philanthropist MR Rangaswami said Ms Haley had actively engaged with the Indian community.

“Nikki Haley actively engaged with the Indiaspora community and listened to our issues and helped us. We fondly remember the interaction with her Sikh parents at the dinner we hosted for her in New York,” he said.

“We wish her well in her future endeavours!” Mr Rangaswami added.

As the highest ranking Indian-American in the Trump Administration, the first Indian-American to hold the position of the UN Ambassador and the first Indian-American woman elected as governor, Ms Haley has served the US with distinction, said the recently formed Indian-American Impact Project,  a group of Indian-American philanthropists, community leaders, and political operatives.

“We are proud of her service and leadership, and grateful that she has inspired countless Indian-Americans aspiring to careers in public service and foreign service. We wish her the best in her future endeavours,” it said.

Ms Haley did an outstanding job of representing United States at United Nations, said Dallas-based eminent Indian-American Republican Ashok Mago.

“Wish she had stayed for another couple of years. President admired her outstanding work. She may not be running in 2020 to be president but it is matter of time. Hope eventually she will decide to run may be in 2024,” Mr Mago said.

“On behalf of all American Sikhs nationwide, we are proud of Nikki Haley, who was born to Indian Sikh Immigrants, for her work as the 29th United States Ambassador to the United Nations; where she served with great respect and dignity,” said Gurinder Singh Khalsa, of the Indiana-based SikhsPAC.

“Her steadfast efforts throughout her career have broken barriers for all women. We are extremely proud of her and I personally feel that in the near future she may be the first woman president of the United States,” Mr Khalsa said.

“We would like to commend Ambassador Haley on all she has accomplished in so many capacities. We are proud of her and wish her all the best in future endeavors,” said Deepak Raj, co-founder of Impact, chairman of Pratham USA and founder of the Raj Center on Indian Economic Policies at Columbia University.

According to Ranju Batra from New York, Ms Haley has become a role model for women across the world who wish to work to make a better world.

“Personally, as chair of the Diwali Foundation USA, Inc., I’m most grateful to Nikki for having United States of America as a co-sponsor, in addition to 25 other nations, to our 2017 inaugural Diwali – ‘Power of One’ awards, that recognised six exceptional former Permanent Representatives and high ranking UN leaders,” she said.

The daughter of Indian immigrants from Punjab, Ms Haley said she wanted to take a break after nearly eight years of hectic pubic life including six years as the governor of South Carolina.

Born Nimrata “Nikki” Randhawa, Ms Haley is latest Republican to exit the Trump administration.
