Four hotels belong to the Club Quarters chain, three of which are in New York and one in Washington, these four we have to equip by the end of the year. I’m going to America next week because of an arrangement for a possible four more outfits next year. There are indications that this could turn into a very serious business. It has also been agreed to equip a hotel belonging to the Even chain, located in Miami, and we have to deliver it by March or April next year. We sent a model room to America for a project in Miami, and to equip hotels in New York and Washington is already working hard in production”Points out the owner of Ancona Group, Markica Stanušić for Poslovni dnevnik.Photo: Ancona groupExactly one “small” company from Croatia managed to contract the equipping of five American hotels in 2017 and 2018 through a regular tender. You know when you apply for a job and if you have the best offer you get a job. So simple and normal, right?”I was on a trip to America last year for Christmas and New Year. I accidentally booked the Club Quarters hotel and when I arrived, I expected a lot more. We went through a dozen hotels, but the furniture seemed terribly cheap, modest. I contacted an agent I met at the fair and asked if we had the opportunity to compete there. There was a competition, and just for that hotel where I stayed for the first time. We called and – passed ” Stanušić points out and adds that his new client has so far imported everything from the Blistok East, and never from Europe. “I don’t know what they expected here, but when they saw the company, the facilities, the model room, our approach to work, they went in amazement”Concludes Stanušić.Let’s buy Croatian.

AVB: Bale not for sale

first_img “We’ve allowed ourselves conversations with Real Madrid, confirmed by their coach I think wrongly, but the only thing we’ve communicated is that the player is our player and not for sale.” Asked if he felt Ancelotti was in the wrong, Villas-Boas said: “I think so, in my opinion. “Carlo is a person I appreciate a lot and we have great respect for each other, but bearing in mind this situation they have decided to make it public. “Normally in situations like this in England it is scrutinised by the (Football Association) with lots of care and attention. We have seen lots of people speak about a player that is not theirs and we are due some respect. “There are conversations because there is big, big respect between the clubs bearing in the mind the transfer last year (of Luka Modric) and the agreement last year of goodwill between the clubs. At the moment we are following from those instructions. “But of the player, bearing in mind the investment you have seen at Tottenham recently, he is a player who is decisive for us. We are building a very strong team and we are building for a future with Gareth. “In football, anything is possible but what we have communicated so far is that we are not willing to concede to their interest in the player.” Bale has not featured for Tottenham during the pre-season, with a foot injury reported to have been the cause for his absence from the Monaco trip. It is being reported that the player is unsettled amid Madrid’s continuing interest. Bale has been linked with a world record transfer to Madrid with reports of a deal worth up to £105million being all but finalised, but Spurs manager Villas-Boas insists he is continuing to plan for the coming season with Bale in his team, while admitting to some frustration with Madrid’s very public pursuit of the Wales international. “I think the rumours that anything is imminent are not true,” he told reporters at a press conference after Saturday night’s 5-2 friendly defeat to Monaco, before going on to criticise Real coach Carlo Ancelotti for publicly confirming that talks had taken place. Andre Villas-Boas insists the only talks between Tottenham and Real Madrid regarding Gareth Bale have been to tell the Spanish club he is not for sale.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Braithwaite, the burning nail

first_imgMeanwhile, in Sport he talked about the Camp Nou reception: “I don’t feel like my soccer looks like Larsson’s, To be honest. But we are similar in one thing: he was a tremendously intelligent player. I don’t know what his mentality was and his way of being, because I haven’t met him personally, but he’s a legend. When I entered the Camp Nou I felt amazing because the atmosphere was fantastic. But I don’t know if that environment is normal here. “ Martin Braithwaite, Last minute signing at Barça after the long-lasting injury of Dembélé, appears as great animator and hope azulgrana for the last twelve days of the League. As oblivious to the pessimism surrounding the club and the messes that arise every day around the team, Braithwaite lives in a bubble and claims to be “one hundred by one hundred” convinced that Barça will win LaLiga. This Friday is the cover of sports newspapers in Barcelona. In the interview with Sports world, it falls apart in praise Messi: “He’s a great boy, He is waiting to help the players. It is helping me to join the team and in the countryside, of course, it’s amazing, it’s nice to see you. I’m sure that as we get to know more and play more time together, Our connection will improve. If it is amazing to see him play in games, enjoy him in training every day, it is even more incredible. I try to learn from him. “last_img read more

Kyle Walker plays down top-four hype as Tottenham go 12 games unbeaten

first_imgTottenham defender Kyle Walker has played down the side’s chances of ending their long wait for Champions League football, insisting the young Spurs side must ‘keep their feet on the ground’ as they continue their unbeaten Premier League run.The north London side have been a force home and away this term and have not dropped points since the opening day of the season, with Sunday’s impressive 4-1 London derby victory over West Ham extending their run to 12 games.Victory at White Hart Lane also lifted Spurs to within just two points of Arsenal in fourth place, and the ruthless manner of their display against the Hammers is perhaps a sign it will not take long for them to leapfrog their fierce rivals.Walker, who was on target with a wonderful outside-of-the-boot strike on Sunday, admits that morale is high within the squad, but he also warned his team-mates they must not allow their recent success to go to their heads.“It was a fantastic performance and every year people are saying about the top four, but this year we just need to concentrate on ourselves,” he told talkSPORT after the victory.“If we keep putting in the performances we are now, I don’t think many teams will come here and beat us and I think teams will struggle against us at their own grounds as well.“There has to be a belief [that they can make the top four] with how we’re playing, we’re all confident in ourselves and with each other and confident in the manager and what he’s trying to put across. I think that’s key, we’re taking steps in the right direction.“We’re playing with a smile on our faces. There’s a good togetherness, a good vibe about the place and it’s making the difference out there on the pitch.“But the main thing is keeping our feet on the ground. That’s vital, we can’t get ahead of ourselves.”With an average age of 24, Tottenham’s squad is the youngest of all the teams in the Premier League this season, with a line-up including the likes of Walker (25), Harry Kane (22), Dele Alli (19), Christian Eriksen (23), Eric Dier (21) and Erik Lamela (23) barely changing since the campaign kicked off.Their opening day defeat to Manchester United aside, the youthful Spurs side are yet to really face a major struggle this term, and Walker highlighted the importance of the role Tottenham’s more experienced stars will play when more difficult times do come their way.He added: “We’re a young team with not too much experience and that’s where the more experienced players, the likes of me, Jan [Vertonghen], Hugo [Lloris] , Moussa [Dembele], Toby [Alderweireld] and Danny rose, we need to get them together when times are tough.“We will have some tough times throughout the season – well, hopefully not but it will happen – but hopefully we can just keep this run going.“That’s the main thing. If we can just keep producing on a Saturday, Sunday and Thursday, that’s all that matters to me.”last_img read more
