Christian Benteke will “run more” after chat with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

first_img The Belgium international came off the bench to score the winner to end Barclays Premier League leaders Leicester’s three-month unbeaten run. However, Benteke was only on the pitch because of a first-half hamstring injury to compatriot Divock Origi, who was preferred up front in the starting line-up. The £32.5million summer signing’s lack of movement has been criticised as it does not fit in with his manager’s all-action, high-tempo tactics. But the 25-year-old insists he can adapt to the needs of Klopp and the team. “I spoke with the manager a few days ago about where I can improve and what he is expecting from me,” said the striker. “Sometimes when you are a little bit on the side you try to understand what the manager needs and what he wants and we had a very good chat. “We had a ‘man conversation’ and I think it is going to help me and help the team. “I think I have to run more and I have to be there for my team-mates. “You could see (against Leicester) that I showed I understand his message and now I have to keep going like that.” After arriving from Aston Villa in the summer Benteke started the first six matches of the season under Brendan Rodgers, who fought so hard to bring the big striker to Anfield that the club relented after initially refusing to pay the full amount of his buy-out clause. But injury sidelined him for a month and by the time he returned Rodgers had been sacked and replaced by Klopp. He has yet to start back-to-back league matches under the German but that is set to change as he is now the only fit striker with Origi the latest to fall victim to a hamstring injury. Danny Ings has been ruled out for the season after a knee ligament operation and Daniel Sturridge has still not recovered from a hamstring problem despite the England international tweeting on Boxing Day: “I’m back training and good to go!!”. “I wanted to start (against Leicester), of course, every player wants to play but it is the decision of the manager and I have to be ready,” added Benteke. “I won’t complain. It is part of football. Inside of me I know it is not easy. “When I came it was for Brendan and now it is for Jurgen, so it is a different manager. “I have to learn and I have to understand what he wants. “Of course I am still a young player and I want to learn. He is the right manager for me to help me in my development. “I was not worried about fitting in or not because now football has changed. “I am not saying every player can play like Barcelona but I have been in England a long time so I can adapt. “I think like any striker you need a few games but we have a great squad and it is hard to play every game.” Liverpool striker Christian Benteke accepts he has to work harder on the pitch to earn a place in the side after an enlightening chat with manager Jurgen Klopp. Press Associationlast_img read more

Spector jury still being selected

first_imgLOS ANGELES – The initial phase of jury selection for record producer Phil Spector’s murder trial concluded Tuesday with about 200 prospects ordered to return to court next month for individual questioning. During the two-day proceeding Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler excused prospects who could not serve during the projected four-month trial, including mothers who stay at home with children and a lawyer defending a client in an ongoing case. Prospects who were not excused were ordered to fill out 18-page questionnaires that prosecutors and defense attorneys will study before jury selection resumes on April 16. The judge said he may put some prospects on call rather than have the entire group report back to court on that date. “We have lots of reading to do,” prosecutor Pat Dixon said later as he pushed a cart loaded with questionnaires down a court hall. Spector is accused of killing Lana Clarkson, an actress who was working as a nightclub hostess. She was shot in the foyer of Spector’s castlelike Alhambra home on Feb. 3, 2003. He has pleaded not guilty and is free on $1 million bail. Spector and his wife, 26-year-old actress/model Rachelle Short, watched proceedings with three burly bodyguards who accompany them everywhere. His attorney, Roger Rosen, said afterward that Spector has continuing health problems which he did not specify. “He’s doing OK,” Rosen said. “He has had a number of health issues over the last year and he’s not past all of them yet.” Rosen said Spector is following the proceedings. “He’s very attentive. He writes me notes in court and we speak at lunch,” the attorney said. The judge rescheduled an April 9 pretrial to April 10 because he has been called to jury duty. Spector revolutionized recording with his “wall of sound” technique. His career highlights include producing the Beatles’ album “Let It Be,” and he wrote classics such as “Da Doo Ron Ron,” “Be My Baby,” “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling” and “River Deep-Mountain High.” Spector, 67, sat attentively throughout Tuesday morning’s court session. For the second day in a row, the normally flamboyant defendant was dressed in subdued attire, wearing a gray coat, blue slacks and black platform-heeled boots. He sported a brownish-blond hairdo. Spector, a 1989 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, met Clarkson, a statuesque 40-year-old blonde actress and Long Beach native, while she was working as a VIP hostess at the House of Blues nightclub in West Hollywood. Clarkson was shot in the head, and her body was found in the foyer of Spector’s mansion. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Maersk Koole Terminals to Produce 05 Sulphur Fuel

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Maersk Maersk’s subsidiary Maersk Oil Trading has teamed up with liquid bulk storage operator Koole Terminals for the production of IMO 2020-compliant bunker fuel in the Port of Rotterdam.Maersk said the agreed annual production was expected to cover 5-10% of Maersk’s annual fuel demand, allowing the company to expand its bunker supply volumes in Europe.“The fuel manufacturing process allows Maersk to produce compatible low sulphur fuels that complies with the IMO 2020 sulphur cap implementation, reducing the need to rely on 0.1% price-based gasoil and fuel oil outside the ECA zones,” Niels Henrik Lindegaard, Head of Maersk Oil Trading at A.P. Moller – Maersk, said.The IMO 2020 0.5% sulphur fuel cap will be implemented globally as of January 1, 2020. Bunker fuels within the ECA (Emission Control Area) zones will remain at the current cap of 0.1% sulphur. Koole’s Petrochemical Industrial Distillation (PID) unit, located at the company’s Botlek site at the Port of Rotterdam, will allow Maersk to produce such ECA 0.1% sulphur fuel.The deal with Koole Terminals follows Maersk’s agreement with PBF Logistics from February this year, which will allow Maersk to supply IMO 2020-compliant marine fuel to customers on the US East Coast.Additionally, in August 2018 Maersk signed a leasing agreement with Vopak for storage of 2.3 million mt 0.5% compliant fuel at the Vopak Europoort Terminal in Rotterdam.last_img read more
