Lucas Alcaraz was presented Tuesday as the new coach of Albacete. The Andalusian coach has signed until the end of the season and arrives in La Mancha with the aim of achieving permanence with the white team. The sports director of the Manchego entity Mauro Pérez has pointed out in the presentation of the new coach of Albacete that “After the last results we have been forced to change technicians and we have considered that Lucas is the ideal one, for his career, for his experience and for the teams in which he has been in this situation and especially for his enthusiasm to come. We are grateful that he came to Albacete knowing the situation we are in. “ In his turn of speech, Lucas Alcaraz stressed that “I want to thank the opportunity to train Albacete, when I do not train I like to watch football and that is why you have seen me here before, I think the team can be saved and if it is suffering the least better, The staff has plenty of arguments to achieve the goal and I fully trust the work of the sports management made in the winter market. “The Andalusian coach has indicated that “I have not yet spoken to the squad, I really want to start training because a coach without a coach is like a fish without being in the water, Ramis has done a good job here, I come to work four months and there is no agreement later, the important thing is to achieve the goal and if so we will sit down. “Lucas Alcaraz will direct his first training with Albacete on Wednesday and on Sunday he will debut at Carlos Belmonte against Ponferradina.
Dear Editor,The Alliance for Change (AFC) has now invented an innovative and creative campaign strategy, which reproduces the inherent lies and deceit, but in another form.It was claimed by Mr Khemraj Ramjattan, on the Alliance on the Move programme, that PPP supporters are intimidating people from putting their names on the AFC candidates’ list. He further said the Guyana Police Force will be called in to deal with these PPP supporters. This is hard to believe, since no one can stop anyone from backing any candidate, that being an entirely private matter; unless these would-be AFC backers made a public proclamation to the effect.However, this is just a prefabricated excuse, or more like a good defence when the AFC fails at the LGE polls, which they are bound to!It must be recalled that, not so long ago, Mr Ramjattan lambasted and insulted the residents of the Upper Corentyne, accusing them of sitting down and drinking rum, and only waiting for the ‘lawyer boy’ to come and buy rum for them. Now he wants them to vote for him! He should apologise, and then ask for their support. Mr Ramjattan has always opined that Berbicians are illiterate and stupid, but he needs to understand that they have excellent long-term memories, and can recall insults verbatim.Moreover, the AFC is now promising roads, land, street lights, gun licences, and other favours once residents support them by signing on the LGE backers form. This is not only deceitful, but illegal. No political party can promise state resources in return for support and votes.Another ploy is their going into NDC areas where work was done by the Regional Democratic Council and taking credit for the work. This was done in the Kilcoy/Hampshire NDC, where I am the Chairman. This was raised at the last RDC statutory meeting.Furthermore, someone (named) told the viewers on the Alliance on the Move programme that only if the residents put their names on the AFC’s List can they gain access to the AFC Ministers, such as Mr Ramjattan and Mr Patterson, to ventilate their issues. This is a new form of corruption, holding the people at ransom to vote for the AFC. This is what should be investigated by SOCU and the GPF, not legal Cabinet decisions!Never in the history of this country has a political party been so barefaced and corrupted. Our State resources are being used to openly bargain for votes.Let the people beware of these illegal and nasty manoeuvrings of the AFC! The AFC’s ghost is now on the haunting!Yours sincerely,Haseef Yusuf
