Chelsea wanted to sign Van Dijk, says Conte

first_img“This is football, this is life,” Conte said, as quoted by the Daily Mail. “For sure he was our target but as you know, this is football.“We can have a lot of targets but you must be able to reach those targets. The transfer market is not simple for any club.“Liverpool bought Van Dijk to reinforce their defensive line – and I think Van Dijk is a top defender. And they spent €85million for this player.”Van Dijk lined up alongside Joel Matip in the heart of the Liverpool defence for their 2-1 victory over Everton in the FA Cup on Friday and also announced his arrival by scoring the winning goal in the 84th minute.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Antonio Conte guided Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season in charge at Stamford BridgeLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 10 – Chelsea manager Antonio Conte admits new Liverpool signing Virgil van Dijk was a transfer target for his side but that they couldn’t match the Reds’ bid.Jurgen Klopp’s team shelled out £75m to prise the highly-rated centre-back away from Southampton, and Conte has revealed that the Blues were also interested in the Dutchman’s talents.last_img read more

Attorney Says He Paid Adult Film Actress Who Alleges Affair With Trump

first_img Share Pablo Martinez Monsivais/APMichael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, says he paid $130,000 to adult film star.Updated at 2:51 p.m. ETPresident Trump’s personal attorney says he paid $130,000 to an adult film star who said she had an affair with Trump.In a statement first provided to The New York Times, Michael Cohen says that “in a private transaction in 2016, I used my own personal funds to facilitate a payment of $130,000 to Ms. Stephanie Clifford. Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly.”Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, says she met Trump during a golf tournament in 2006. In a 2011 interview with In Touch Weekly, she said she had an affair with Trump while he was married to his current wife, Melania, shortly after she gave birth to their son, Barron. Cohen has stated that Trump has denied the affair. After the allegations became public, Clifford went on a publicity tour but was coy about the specifics.On Wednesday, Daniels’ manager, Gina Rodriguez, told The Associated Press that Cohen had violated the non-disclosure agreement between Daniels and Cohen and that the actress was now free to tell her side of the story.“Everything is off now, and Stormy is going to tell her story,” Rodriguez told the AP.Cohen says his payment to Clifford, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, “was lawful and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.” Cohen initially denied making the payments in the first Wall Street Journal story. He cited a complaint filed by Common Cause to the Federal Election Commission that he said “alleges that I somehow violated campaign finance laws by facilitating an excess, in-kind contribution.” Cohen says the allegation in the complaint “are factually unsupported and without legal merit,” adding his counsel has submitted a response to the FEC.Cohen said he would not have any further comment on the complaint or Clifford.Paul Seamus Ryan, the lawyer for Common Cause who filed the FEC complaint, said Cohen’s denial only included the Trump Organization and Trump campaign, not Trump himself.Cohen “did not remove the possibility that he was reimbursed by Donald Trump himself or by someone other than Donald Trump, for this payment,” said Ryan.Of Cohen’s allegation that the payment to Daniels had nothing to do with the campaign, Ryan said, “this came came a week after the Access Hollywood tapes, so the Trump campaign already was mired in sexual misconduct allegations, or a sexual misconduct scandal.”Copyright 2018 NPR.

A First bus The new timetable will also see First Potteries axing the services to Saxonfields and Meir Hay with D&G also operating a new service in that area.

I don’t know how they even find time to come up with the changes.
