Flick convinces in Bayern

first_imgBayern Munich President Herbert Hainer sees future prospects for Hansi Flick as the team’s main coach beyond the current season, in which he took office after the dismissal of Niko Kovac.“We want to play a successful and fascinating football, like the one we are playing now with Hansi Flick, and if he keeps winning like this, there is no alternative”Hainer said in statements published Tuesday by the newspaper ‘Passauer Neue Presse’. The leader recalled that the current champion of the Bundalista already expressed “confidence” in Flick to confirm “until the end of the season.” “I think he is doing an excellent job, and I don’t say it just because we won all three games this year, but also because of the way we play”, said the former director of ‘adidas’.According to Hainer, he had rarely seen such a convincing victory for Bayern as he recently won against Schalke 5-0, “where the opponent barely managed to pass the midfield line in the second half.”The president of Bayern also mentioned that the goal was to win the Champions League in the coming seasons. “After all, in 2022 we will have the final at home and at the latest we want to win. But if we won before, I would have nothing against it,” said Hainer.last_img read more

Mexico slams Egypt air strike after tourists killed

first_imgMEXICO CITY,Mexico — Mexico called on Egypt Monday to swiftly investigate why a group of tourists were mistakenly targeted in what witnesses described as an air strike that killed at least two Mexicans.Egyptian authorities have not said what weapons were involved in Sunday’s attack in the Western Desert, in which 12 people died and 10 more were wounded.But six Mexican survivors told Mexico’s ambassador to Egypt that they had stopped for a meal when they “suffered an aerial attack with bombs launched by a plane and helicopters,” Foreign Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu told a news conference.The group had arrived in Cairo on September 11 and left two days later on their way to the Bahariya oasis, Ruiz Massieu said.They were near the oasis when they came under fire, she said. The Egyptian travel agency Windows of Egypt informed the Mexican ambassador about the attack.At least two Mexicans have been confirmed dead, she said, adding that diplomats are trying to identify them.The six survivors, who were taken to a hospital in a Cairo suburb, are in stable condition, the minister said.She said her ministry delivered a diplomatic note to the Egyptian ambassador in which the Mexican government expresses its “deep dismay over these deplorable events” and demands a “swift, exhaustive and deep investigation.”“The Mexican government asks that Egyptian authorities give the highest priority and urgency to clearing up this issue,” Ruiz Massieu said.She said Egyptian officials have vowed to create an investigative committee that will be headed by Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab.Mexican media identified one of the dead as Rafael José Bejarano Rangel, a 40-year-old musician and shaman, whose mother, Marisela Rangel, was wounded in the air strike.According to Reforma newspaper, Bejarano Rangel supported indigenous Huichol communities and played local instruments.The man’s aunt, Araceli Rangel Dávalos, told Milenio television that she learned about the incident “last night in the news.”Rangel Davalos said her sister Marisela was in stable condition but that they have not been able to talk to each other.“I hope I can go be with my family soon,” she said.Egypt’s interior ministry said Sunday that a joint police and military operation was “chasing terrorist elements” when it “mistakenly” targeted four pick-up trucks carrying Mexican tourists.The ministry did not give a breakdown of the casualties but said “the incident led to the death of 12 Mexicans and Egyptians and the wounding of 10 others.”It said the tourists were in an area that was “off-limits” but did not provide an exact location.President Enrique Peña Nieto condemned the incident in a tweet late Sunday.
