Klopp warns: Liverpool will continue to blaze the trail

first_img “It’s unbelievable, to be honest. We won four trophies – big ones – and I couldn’t be more proud,” he said. “Normally I’m a person who doesn’t need pictures with something. As long as I can remember it, it’s worth it. But I will have a picture with all four trophies because it doesn’t happen often.” The coronavirus pandemic not only delayed Liverpool clinching the league crown but also denied them from receiving the trophy in front of their supporters, though Klopp hopes the absent audience understands the role they have played in the successful campaign. “That’s how life is – you make the best of what you can get,” the former Borussia Dortmund boss said. “Our families are allowed to be there, which is incredible. read also:BREAKING: Liverpool hit Chelsea 5-3 in Anfield thriller “Everything would be better with fans, but we’ve known for months that would not be possible. A few months ago, I wasn’t even sure it was going to be possible to even play football. “I couldn’t be happier, to be honest. It would be perfect if the stadium was full, I know, but we cannot change it. What we try to do to make clear for the people is that we do it for them.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Jurgen Klopp issued a warning to the rest of the Premier League that Liverpool “will not stop” despite ending the club’s long wait to be crowned champions again. The Reds lifted the trophy on Wednesday after a 5-3 win over Chelsea in their final home game of an unforgettable season, though no fans were present inside Anfield. However, the players and staff were able to have their families in attendance to enjoy the occasion, with the ceremony taking place on a stage built on the famous Kop end. Liverpool had never previously won the title in the Premier League era, their last triumph coming 30 years ago under Kenny Dalglish, who was involved in the presentation. “We will not stop. We will not stop. We have challenges, internal challenges. We can improve, obviously,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “We have players. Naby [Keita] played pretty much only the last part of the season. We pretty much have the chance to take another step. But we have to because the others will not sleep. Klopp steered Liverpool to Champions League glory last season, while they have also lifted the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup this term. While not usually one for nostalgia, the German coach admitted he will have a photo with all four trophies so he can forever remember the achievement.center_img Promoted Content6 Extreme Facts About HurricanesThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Panel recommends committee to monitor scouts and guides

first_imgbodies (Eds: Repeating after making a change in headline)New Delhi, Aug 24 (PTI) A high-level committee under the Union Youth Affairs Ministry has recommended appointment of a permanent monitoring committee for regular audit of two scouts and guides bodies, which, the inquiry panel alleged, have been mired in “financial irregularities”.The committee, set up about two months ago by the ministry, inquired into the functioning of century-old volunteer bodies – Bharat Scouts and Guides, and the Hindustan Scouts and Guides – and today submitted its final report to Union Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Vijay Goel at his office here.”When it comes to financial management of the two bodies, there are irregularities and norms are being flouted. We recommend that a permanent monitoring committee be appointed for their regular audit, and its report be submitted regularly to the ministry,” convener of the committee, S K Bhattacharya said.”Also, an external chartered accountant be appointed by the ministry for conducting regular audit of accounts,” he said.After submitting the report to Goel, Bhattacharya and other members of the panel also held an interaction with the minister and urged him to ensure implementation of the recommendations.Goel said, “We have accepted the report and the ministry will now formulate an action plan on it as to the implementation of the recommendations.”The high-level committee has also recommended that greater transparency be brought in the process to select candidates for the Rashtrapati Puraskar (Presidents Award).”As of now, only the Bharat Scouts and Guides members are considered for selecting candidates for the Presidents Award. We recommend that its ambit be widened to include Hindustan Scouts and Guides as well,” Bhattacharya said.advertisementDuring the meeting with Goel, Bhattacharya and other panel members alleged that the question paper for the examination to be undertaken for selecting candidates for the award have been “leaked” in the past.Goel said his ministry would take cognisance of this and do the needful to expand the ambit of selection procedure.The committee has also recommended enlarging the enrolment strength from current 70 lakh to 2 crore, besides revision of its “outdated curriculum” in consonance with latest plans of the government.”The committee has also suggested to us to have more number of organisations which can be given recognition to take scouts and guides activities. Only two organisations are not enough to run the system, so we will look into that,” Goel said.Other recommendations include constituting a committee of experts to prepare the guidelines for scouts and guides activities, setting up of a training centre, and release of grant on the basis of project details submitted, instead of being awarded ad-hoc.”At least one of the volunteer activities, like NCC, NSS, or scouts and guides, should be made compulsory in each school, CBSE or state government board-run,” the committees convener recommended.According to the ministry officials, Bharat Scouts and Guides, and Hindustan Scouts and Guides, both receive Rs 75 lakh each per year as grant from the Centre.”Besides, they get funds from respective state governments as well as through the membership fee,” an official said.Goel said the two scouts bodies have played important roles in building discipline and work ethics among the youth and hence they need to be restructured so they can also contribute in spreading awareness about the governments programmes.
