Huang chosen as dean

Gillen Dean of the Mendoza College of Business, according to a University press release Friday. “I am honored and humbled by this opportunity to assume the deanship of the Mendoza College of Business,” Huang said in the release. “I am inspired by the vision of the founder of the business school, Cardinal John O’Hara, who said that the primary function of commerce is service to mankind. “This vision sets the Mendoza College apart form other business schools, and I look forward to furthering our vision of business as a powerful force for good.” Huang earned the appointment as interim dean of the College when former dean Carolyn Woo left last year to serve as president of Catholic Relief Services.

Loading… Following his £6.5million move from West Ham in the summer, the striker has scored just three goals for them, including one in LaLiga and two in the UEFA Europa League. The signing of Hernandez could, however, offer Galaxy the Ibrahimovic replacement they have been looking for. The Swedish center-forward scored 52 goals in 56 games for the US team but left at the end of last season to try his hand again in Europe. Hernandez won the Premier League twice with United and is Mexico’s all-time leading scorer with 52 goals. While he will face a hard task replicating Ibrahimovic’s incredible goalscoring record, he will arguably be the biggest ticket seller in Major League Soccer.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Club manager Dennis te Kloese is looking for a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic after he headed back to AC Milan. He told Spanish outlet MARCA that the Sevilla forward could be the man. Kloese said: “We are going to try seriously to sign him, it would be a good deal for us.” Having previously mentioned his desire to play in the MLS, the 5ft 7in Mexican is said to be in “advanced negotiations” after meeting with a representative of Galaxy on Monday to discuss an offer over the potential move. Sevilla are said to want £8million for Hernandez, which would force the MLS side to smash the club record £5million they paid Villareal for Giovani dos Santos in 2015. Despite being said to have a good relationship with manager Lopetegui, Hernandez has been struggling for games at Sevilla, having made just 14 appearances in all competitions.last_img read more

Toure escapes FA charge

first_img “There was certainly something, but whether that was enough for a red card, then that is for the referee to decide on. “It was a minimal incident in the game, and the bigger factor was it was a good team performance by us.” The decision to clear Toure is more good news for City, with the injured trio of Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri and Fernandinho all taking part in a training session on Monday. The news was also well received by Van Wolfswinkel himself. The Dutchman tweeted: “Good to see Toure not getting suspended. Players like him belong on the pitch! What happens at Carrow Road stays at Carrow Road. “Things happen on the pitch. But we all enjoy watching him play. So get on with it and enjoy the football. That’s what it’s all about.” The Ivory Coast star could have faced a three-match ban but the three-man panel of former elite referees which reviewed the incident did not unanimously believe it was an act of violent conduct. That will come as a huge relief to City boss Manuel Pellegrini as his club chase the Premier League and FA Cup trophies. Manchester City have received a huge boost after the Football Association decided to take no action against midfielder Yaya Toure for an apparent kick at Norwich’s Ricky van Wolfswinkel. Press Association It will however, infuriate Jose Mourinho, manager of City’s main title rivals Chelsea, who claimed if Toure was not suspended it would give carte blanche to other players to misbehave. Mourinho said: “If he (Toure) is not suspended, the message is clear: the players can do what they want if the referee doesn’t see. “If there’s no suspension, the message is normally that, if the FA defends football, he’d have to be suspended. “It’s the same for everyone: if the referee doesn’t see, I can do whatever. It doesn’t matter about cameras or others seeing. I can do whatever I want.” A suspension for Toure would have come as a hammer blow to City’s title hopes after Pellegrini’s side dropped two points at Norwich on the back of losing to current Premier League leaders Chelsea. Toure, arguably City’s most influential player this season, will now be available for Wednesday’s game against Sunderland, the FA Cup fifth-round match against Chelsea at the weekend, and the league fixture against Stoke. Norwich boss Chris Hughton claimed Toure did kick his player, though said it was a “minimal incident”. The clash happened during the 0-0 draw at Carrow Road and appeared to be missed by match officials. Hughton said: “It did go unnoticed and there was no doubt there was a slight kick out. last_img read more
