Jose Mourinho has been appointed Roma manager from the start of next season.

The 58-year-old will replace fellow Portuguese Paulo Fonseca, who Roma announced earlier on Tuesday would leave at the end of the current season.

Mourinho, sacked by Tottenham on 19 April, has signed a three-year deal with the three-time Serie A champions.

“The incredible passion of the Roma fans convinced me to accept the job and I cannot wait to start next season,” said Mourinho.

“Thank you to the Friedkin family for choosing me to lead this great club. After meetings with the ownership and Tiago Pinto, I immediately understood the full extent of their ambitions.

“It is the same ambition and drive that has always motivated me and together we want to build a winning project,” added Mourinho, who has also managed Inter Milan, Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid outside his homeland.

Mourinho was dismissed after 17 months in charge of Spurs following a poor second half of the season in which the north London club slipped from top of the table to outside the European places.

This season Mourinho suffered 10 league defeats in a single campaign for the first time in his managerial career.

Mourinho’s previous stint in Italian football was a successful one with Inter Milan that produced four major honours in two years.

He won the Italian title twice, the second victory forming part of the club’s historic treble in 2009-10 which also saw them claim the Champions League and Coppa Italia.

Manchester United (2016-18)Europa League, League Cup5th/6th
Tottenham (2019-21)None14th/7th

Roma have not won Serie A since 2000-01, when former England manager Fabio Capello was in charge. The club – who lost the 1984 European Cup final in their own stadium against Liverpool – also won the title in 1941-42 and 1982-83.

“When Jose became available, we immediately jumped at the chance to speak with one of the greatest managers of all time,” said Pinto, general manager of Roma, who are seventh in Serie A.

“We were blown away by Jose’s desire to win and his passion for the game: no matter how many trophies he has won, his primary focus is always on the next one. He possesses the knowledge, experience and leadership to compete at all levels.

“We are supremely confident Jose will be the perfect coach for our project, for both our immediate and long-term future.”

UP Woman Claims Harassment, Neglect At Bihar Hospitals Treating Husband

UP Woman Claims Harassment, Neglect At Bihar Hospitals Treating Husband


UP Woman Claims Harassment, Neglect At Bihar Hospitals Treating Husband

The woman said her husband and she had come to Bihar for a family get-together

Patna:

A woman trying to get her husband treated for COVID-19 at a private hospital in Bihar’s Bhagalpur has accused a staff member of sexual harassment and doctors at the city’s Glocal Hospital and two others – in Mayaganj and Patna – of negligence leading to his death.

In a heart-breaking 12-minute video appeal, the woman alleged doctors and staff at all three hospitals refused to attend to her husband, even to change dirty and soiled sheets on his bed.

She also accused staff at the Bhagalpur hospital of wasting half a vial of Remdesivir – the hugely expensive and difficult-to-procure antiviral drug used in the treatment of COVID-19.

“My husband and I stay in Noida. We came to Bihar for Holi… it was a family get-together. On April 9 he fell ill… had high fever. We tested for coronavirus twice, but it was negative. While we were waiting for RT-PCR test results a Noida doctor told us to get a chest CT,” she said.

The scan, she said, showed 60 per cent infection of the lungs. The following day he, and her mother, were admitted to Bhagalpur’s Glocal Hospital.

“We admitted them – my mother was also unwell – to the ICU… but there was so much negligence! Doctors used to come and go in minutes… attendants were missing and refused to give the medicines. My mother was in better condition but after a point my husband couldn’t speak. He’d signal for water, but nobody gave him any,” she said.

“There was one man – Jyoti Kumar. He was an attendant at Glocal Hospital. I requested him to help… to give my husband clean bedsheets. He said he would help but when I was talking to my husband, my dupatta was yanked from behind. I turned around… he was smiling with his hand on my waist. I snatched the dupatta back… but couldn’t say anything because I was afraid. ‘My husband is here, my mother is here,’ I thought, ‘If I say anything they will do something to them’.”

Following the visit of local government officials to inquire into these allegations, Glocal Hospital has now suspended the accused employee.

The woman, who appeared barely able to contain her tears and anger, then spoke of more shocking experiences in Mayaganj and Patna, where her husband was referred to for further treatment.

In Mayaganj, at the Bhagalpur Government Hospital, she claimed doctors on night shift refused to attend to her husband or even give him oxygen despite desperate appeals from herself and her sister.

In Patna (at the city’s Rajeshwar Hospital), she accused staff of negligence even as his oxygen levels dropped alarmingly low. And after that stabilised, she said, they cut his supply and she was forced to buy cylinders from the black market.

Bihar is one of the states most affected by the second Covid wave; officially over 11,000 cases and 67 deaths were reported in the previous 24 hours. The active caseload in the state is well over one lakh.

Mumbai Plans To Import Millions of Vaccines to Avert Third Covid Wave

Mumbai Plans To Import Millions of Vaccines to Avert Third Covid Wave


Mumbai Plans To Import Millions of Vaccines to Avert Third Covid Wave

Mumbai was among the nation’s first epicenters of the coronavirus.

Authorities in Mumbai are seeking to import millions of vaccine doses to help avert a third potential coronavirus wave.

The municipal corporation is in talks with the state government to allow it to invite bids from global manufacturers, Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal said in an interview Monday.

“The state government tender might be very huge, like 40 million, and no foreign supplier can match that kind of number, but if I just float 5 million vaccines, bids may come up from two-three companies,” he said. “I am working on that and it’s a matter of days that we will finalize something.”

Mumbai is open to any approved vaccine — be it Russia’s Sputnik, ones from Moderna Inc. and Johnson & Johnson, or the formula from Pfizer. The city will also pay the firms extra to maintain a cold chain or other necessary logistics, Commissioner Chahal said.

India’s wealthiest city was among the nation’s first epicenters of the coronavirus, but has since seemed to control the spread and is now focused on vaccinating its residents. It has allowed companies and housing societies to hold their own vaccination camps under the supervision of an approved hospital, but a shortage of doses has become a major hurdle.

“Any of 130 private hospitals can send two nurses and one doctor along with an ambulance to any office or housing society premises, they can vaccinate the entire building in two hours and come back, which is kind of de-facto door to door testing,” Commissioner Chahal said.

But the city hasn’t received a single dose of Bharat Biotech Ltd.’s Covaxin in the last 15 days and less than 50,000 doses of Serum Institute of India Ltd.’s Covishield, which is why appointments at vaccine centers are booked out within seconds of being opened.

“Current method for vaccine-slot booking for people aged 18-44 is in resonance with the extreme shortage of vaccines,” Commissioner Chahal said. “You give me 15 million vaccines and we will make it walk-in for all.”
