Rangnick is known as the godfather of German coaching, with him inspiring many famous German coaches like Julian Nagelsmann, Jürgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel. He is currently the Head of Sports and Development at Russian club FC Lokomotiv Moscow but will reportedly be let go in order to accept the United offer.

The deal isn’t finalized just yet but is apparently being finalized with the duration and salary of the contract already being reached. According to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, the only thing not agreed yet are the details of his consultancy role after the 6 months are up.

Malta hits the 1000 active COVID-19 cases mark
Nov 25 2021 Share

Malta has once again hit the 1000 active COVID-19 case mark, registering 1007 active cases following 83 new cases being found in the past 24 hours. This despite the almost fully immunised population, with the booster programme well on its way. 

Health authorities revealed that due to the vaccine rollout being a success, the focus could be shifted onto hospitalisations and deaths instead of the total number of cases. This means that restrictions will be eased or increased depending on how many people are hospitalised or lose their life to COVID. 2 men died of the virus in the past 24 hours.  

The last time there were more than 1,000 cases was the 7th of August at 1,058 cases. 13 patients are currently being treated at Mater Dei, with 2 in the ITU. Till yesterday, 939,732 doses of the vaccine were administer, with 104,989 of these being booster doses.

Graduation bus-cade turns into satirical political commentary

Graduation bus-cade turns into satirical political commentary
Nov 25 2021 Share

As many celebrate their long awaited graduation following a pandemic of patience, a bus-cade session by the Law graduates turned into a jab at Malta’s political climate. The buses used for the tradition of roaming around Malta in celebration of successful studying donned banners all making satires out of Malta’s politicians and context.

The banners commented, with rhyme, on how people can get out of a pickle by calling a lawyer or how they can use Ian Borg’s flyovers to zoom in celebration.

Some were also a bit more mild in terms of satire, depicting Health Minister Chris Fearne and stating how due to be left without a toga last year, graduates can now celebrate with double the festive fever. But all these banners raise some serious questions – has Malta’s political context become an absolute source for mocking and jokes? Should this celebration make us reflect deeper into the state of things?

An AFM helicopter was thus called in to help rescue both the victim and the Civil Protection Department officials. All three people were successfully rescued. 

A massive well done to all those involved in the rescue. The storm which rolled over the Maltese islands this morning prompted many on the roads to help others struggling on the road.
