But Guardiola believes he can do more, especially against the top teams when chances are at a premium – and says the former Liverpool man must be ‘more clinical’.”Raheem’s work ethic, his physicality is incredibly strong, he has this mentality to create chances and score goals and it’s good for him,” said Guardiola.”He’s scored more goals now than in our first season.”He has to be more clinical and precise in the important games. We created a lot of chances (against Rotherham) but if we play against Liverpool or in the Champions League we create just two or three chances.”We don’t have more because the opponents are good, so in that moment we need him. We need him to be precise and to be there.”I think he improved a lot and it’s the same with Phil [Foden]. We cannot expect him to be precise and clear and make good decisions in every single action.”When he is 26 or 27 he will be an incredible, much better player, give us more joy with the way he plays but he still has many things to improve.”Sterling has grown to become a key player for club and country in the last few years.But Guardiola refused to take personal credit for his rise, adding: “All the credit, we said many times… when the game starts, the influence from myself and our staff is zero on what happens in the game.”We have one idea, we tell them what maybe is going to happen. The players are the artists, the credit absolutely belongs to them.”City face Burton in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final at the Etihad on Wednesday before returning to Premier League action against Wolves next Monday night.last_img read more

Morocco MPs Condemns Alleged Law Banning Single Women From Staying in

Taroudant, Morocco – Controversy has arisen after Istiqlal MP Naima Ben Yahya asked a question, during an oral questions session in the House of Representatives on Tuesday, about the existence of a law preventing single women from staying in hotels.Naima Ben Yahya claimed that many hotel owners prohibit single women from booking a room in their hotels.The Istiqlal MP considered such practices unlawful, saying they give a bad image and misrepresent all Moroccan women. Responding to Ben Yahya’s question, Interior Minister Mohamed Hassad said that there is no law prohibiting women to spend the night in hotels located in the cities of their residence, confirming that “women and men are equal before the law in Morocco.”Following Ben Yahya’s question, Milouda Hazeb of the Modernity and Authenticity Party called on the Interior Minister to “punish any discrimination on this regard, because it is a retreat from the gains made under the current government.”While there is no law in Morocco preventing women from spending a night in hotels in the country, Ben Yahya mentioned the existence of such discriminatory practices at many hotels in different Moroccan cities, and expressed readiness to provide the names of such hotels.© Morocco World News.
