Pochettino talks up Coutinho’s quality

first_img “We can’t change it or do anything about it. Actually, talking about it is not going to do anything positive either. Philippe is a Brazilian player and, as it happens with most Brazilians, he has a special magic in his feet. “Aside from the magic that he has, he also has an amazing work rate and that makes us doubt whether he fits the mould of a typical Brazilian player or a European one because his work ethic is outstanding. “What is important about him is he is a good lad, a good kid – a great, humble person. I do think Coutinho has that same quality that Ronaldinho and Messi have, but he has much to prove yet. What is really clear to me is that Coutinho is a really responsible player – really dedicated and responsible to his own players.” Before Coutinho and his Liverpool team-mates come to town, Southampton have to answer a Football Association charge for their behaviour in last weekend’s 0-0 draw at Norwich. The club have been charged with failing to control their players after referee Mark Clattenburg ruled that Luke Shaw fouled Grant Holt just inside the penalty area. Artur Boruc kept out Holt’s subsequent spot-kick but Saints’ players continued to protest after the final whistle and were joined on the pitch by Pochettino. The club have until 4pm on Friday to respond to the charge, which the Argentinian suggests is harsh. “I don’t really feel bad about it because I had full respect for the referee,” Pochettino said. “I went to speak with him and perhaps I should have waited until he came to the dugout to speak to him, but I was always on speaking terms. That is the kind of person I am – a spontaneous person. “I could be at fault a little bit for actually entering the field, but I must say I was on speaking terms with the referee. He spoke back to me and there was never anything above that. Perhaps I should have waited for him to come back to the dugout but I was defending the interests of my club and he was defending his job as well.” The 20-year-old Brazilian has enjoyed a fine start to life at Anfield, having joined from Inter Milan during the January transfer window. It was a time in which Coutinho was heavily linked with a move to Southampton, whose manager Pochettino knows the midfielder well after coaching him during a loan spell at Espanyol last season. The Saints boss was coy when asked whether he had tried to lure Coutinho to the south coast, but more forthcoming when asked about the quality of the player in line to start at St Mary’s on Saturday. “What has happened in the past, happened in the past,” Pochettino said. Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho has similar qualities to Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi, according to Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Near electrocution can’t stop this marriage

When it came time to cancel the caterers and call the wedding guests with the bad news, Howard Hull and Kristen Word couldn’t do it. Love, not logistics, was the reason they were getting married. “Marriage isn’t about some big production and a lot of fancy stuff; it’s about love,” the bride said Wednesday from the doctors dining room at Grossman Burn Center in Sherman Oaks, where she was getting ready for her wedding with her mom and bridesmaids. Howard, the groom, was standing outside in the hallway with his best man, an IV line carrying medication into his left hand to keep the circulation going. The apprentice line mechanic for the Burbank Water and Power Department touched a couple of electrical lines a week and a half ago that were supposed to have been de-energized. They weren’t. More than 4,000 volts of electricity entered Howard’s body through his chin and exited through his left hand, basically blowing off two fingertips. Which is why he was standing here in a hospital hallway on his wedding day instead of in the backyard of his mother’s Glendale home with 40 invited guests and plenty of flowers and other fancy stuff. The couple could have postponed the wedding until Howard got out of the hospital in a week or so. But when you’ve been zapped by 4,000 volts and are still around to talk about it, it puts things in perspective, Howard says. “It makes you realize some things are important; others are not. Kristen showed me incredible love and strength through all this. “She only reaffirmed my desire to marry her right now, on the day we had planned. There was no reason to wait.” Because marriage isn’t about some big, fancy production. It’s about love. And love doesn’t care where you get married. When you work in a hospital burn center, good news is like a cool breeze on a miserably hot, smoggy day. It makes you take a deep breath and smile. The veteran nurses at Grossman Burn Center have seen more than their share of pain and tears, so they were more than ready for laughs and wedding cake. “Once we decided to go ahead with the wedding here, it was a matter of making sure it was OK with Howard’s doctor and pulling it all together in time,” Kristen said. The couple looked around Howard’s hospital room and figured they would have to cut the guest list in half to cram everyone in. “I told them to go ahead and invite everyone they already had invited; we’d find the space,” said Herb Altman, who has operated the center’s hyperbaric oxygen chamber for the past 34 years. Herb and the nurses threw Howard a bachelor party, then helped the staff set up chairs and carry in flowers and cake to the conference room. By 5 p.m. Wednesday, 40 family members and friends of the couple — none of whom had ever been to a wedding in a hospital conference room — stood and applauded as Kristen walked out the door of the doctors dining room on the arm of her dad, ReaganWord. “Nothing could stop this day from happening, not even electrocution,” wedding officiant Alan Katz said, beginning the ceremony with a laugh. Fifteen minutes later, Howard Hull and Kristen Word were officially pronounced husband and wife. After the reception, they returned to Howard’s hospital room and found the nurses had filled it with white balloons and electric candles. “They brought us dinner and let me stay way past visiting hours were over,” the new bride said Thursday morning.
