As I know him, he’s a person who loves the game and wants to win things.

It got me wanting to feel that every week, which is what I am getting now at Southampton.“The lads at Liverpool all wanted me to stay, but understood.

DORAL, FLA. (WSVN) – A CrossFit community came together to exercise and raise money in a show of support after a sudden and severe health scare for one of its coaches.Workout warriors showed up to Zoom Fitness near Northwest 25th Street and 96th Avenue in Doral, Saturday morning.They gathered to raise funds for Jourgan Rodriguez, who suffered a stroke while coaching a class on Christmas Eve.Days later, his colleagues said, Rodriguez is showing remarkable improvement, but the road to recovery will be long.“We didn’t expect that to happen, On Christmas Eve, in the middle of a class,” said co-worker Natalia Martinez. “That’s life everybody’s worst dream coming true.”It was the last health problem anyone would have expected for the 31-year-old coach. Fortunately, a nurse was in his class, and he received medical care immediately.The confirmation that he had suffered a stroke came after he got to the hospital. “I had an uncle who had a stroke two years ago, and it was very tough for me to see him in that situation, so going in there and talking to Jourgan was very, very tough because it was similar. ” said Hernandez. “I tried to hold my composure as much as I could, but eventually I had to break down.”“He’s much better. He’s speaking in sentences, which two days ago he was not,” said Martinez. “If the local community can help as much as possible to help a young man in need, he’s a phenomenal person with a great heart.”If you would like to help, click here.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Close A court in California has slapped a $7.3m (£4.6m, €6.6m) fine on taxi-app firm Uber for not disclosing enough information about its operations to regulators, besides recommending suspension of its operations across the state.The ruling, by an administrative law judge of the California Public Utilities Commission, came as a result of the company withholding data on the number of requests for rides from people with disabilities, causes of accidents and places where drivers tend to turn down ride requests, the Associated Press news agency reported.The judge held that failure to disclose the information violated state laws passed in 2013 that allowed firms such as Uber to operate.The news is the latest blow to San Francisco-based Uber, which is fighting numerous legal battles with governments around the world over its business practices.A spokeswoman for the ride-sharing giant called the ruling deeply disappointing and said the company would appeal the decision.We will appeal the decision as Uber has already provided substantial amounts of data to the California Public Utilities Commission, information we have provided elsewhere with no complaints, spokeswoman Eva Behrend was quoted as saying.Juan Matute, associate director of the Lewis Centre and the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California in Los Angeles, said the fine was not that significant to the firm, which is valued at an estimated $50bn.The $7.3m fine and the data they are asking to provide is not that significant in the grand scheme of things, he told the Los Angeles Times.This would seem like a small consolation to improve their chance of success with other regulatory issues that could have a bigger impact on them.Ubers app allows consumers with smartphones to submit ride requests which are serviced by drivers in the area who use their own cars.The company, which is backed by the likes of Google and Goldman Sachs, has faced protests from taxi companies the world over for its use of crowd-sourced drivers, some allegedly unlicensed.
