Pogba tight-lipped over United situation for fear of being fined

first_imgHowever, Pogba — who cost United a then-world record £89 million (105 million euros, $116 million) in 2016 to prise him away from Juventus — is known to be upset by Mourinho’s remarks about his performances at the World Cup compared to those for his club last season.Mourinho had implied Pogba — whose agent Mini Raiola has reportedly been talking with Barcelona — had flourished under Didier Deschamps at the World Cup because he could not be distracted by his entourage or by his commercial obligations.“There are things and there are things that I cannot say otherwise I will get fined,” Pogba told the British press after the Leicester match in a rare occasion he has stopped to speak with them.Paul Pogba says he cannot say more about his situation at Manchester United for fear of being fined © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFPogba, who was given the captaincy by Mourinho on Friday, summed up what it meant for him to be happy and comfortable.“If you’re not happy, you cannot give your best,” said Pogba.“You have to know one thing: a player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he’s not happy. That’s all I say.”Pogba, who was dropped by Mourinho for both legs of the Champions League last-16 loss to Sevilla last term, said there were differences between playing for France and United.“I am the same, but it’s a different team, obviously,” said Pogba.“I still enjoying playing football but like I said, when you are comfortable or confident and are good in the head, it’s going to be easier.”Pogba said “everybody was on the same page” in the France dressing room, from Deschamps to the staff and players — that has not necessarily been the case at United with several players at different times singled out for public criticism by Mourinho.“When you have everybody with you, everybody next to you, you know they want to fight for you, obviously it’s going to be easier,” he said.However, Pogba — who could still leave despite last Thursday’s English transfer deadline day as most European leagues keep their transfer windows open until the end of August — professed his deep love for the club.“I always love the club (United). I came from the academy, I played for the first team. For me, it was a dream come true.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba shows his frustration during the opening English Premier League match of the 2018/19 season against Leicester City at Old Trafford in Manchester, north-west England, on August 10, 2018 © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 12 – Paul Pogba added fuel to rumours of his deteriorating relationship with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, saying he could not express himself for fear of being fined.The 25-year-old — who scored a superb goal in France’s 4-2 victory over Croatia in the World Cup final — was credited with a ‘monster performance’ by Mourinho in United’s opening 2-1 Premier League win over Leicester City on Friday.last_img read more

Pomona College’s new student loan plan may ease debt

first_imgSchool officials said students and their families will likely continue to take out loans to cover the family share, which is not impacted by the recent policy change. “The average family share doesn’t grow as much as the average scholarship,” Coye said. “The average need goes up, which means that the average cost increase is not picked up by the family. “If costs go up 5 percent, the family share may only go up 1 percent, which means scholarships will have to cover the remaining 4 percent,” she said. In the current academic year, 53 percent of students are receiving financial aid. The average financial aid package is $33,500, and about $3,000 of that now comes in the form of loans. But with the change in policy, loans will be replaced by additional scholarship money. Student leaders at the college said the loan policy change is welcome. “I definitely think that pretty much no matter what, college is going to be an expensive thing. But I think this really minimizes it,” said Elspeth Hilton, president of the Associated Students of Pomona College. “Even though tuition has risen a lot over the last four years I’ve been here, I think this does help and it does make an impact.” Hal Jakle, president of the Pomona Student Union, echoed Hilton’s remarks. “I trust that the financial planners at the college aren’t taking advantage of the students,” Jakle said. The board of trustees approved the decision to eliminate loans from financial aid packages on Dec. 12.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

CLAREMONT – Pomona College officials said they expect the recent decision by the board of trustees to eliminate loans from financial aid packages will reduce the overall debt burden of students. But the impact of the policy change may be blunted by an anticipated increase in costs for tuition and room and board. “We’re simply increasing every student’s scholarship,” said Richard Fass, vice president for planning at the college. “… Everything else will fall out however it falls out. People will do what people will do.” Since the 2003-04 academic year, costs for tuition as well as room and board at the college have risen from $36,870 to $45,3803.

That was the highest year-to-year increase in the past five years. Tuition increases are driven by the cost of salaries and utilities, which are anticipated to continue rising, Fass said. “They’re all going up at rates in the ballpark (of 5 percent),” he said. As the cost of attending the school has increased, so have both the average scholarship amount as well as the average leftover cost students and families need to cover. About 250 students have taken out additional loans to cover the “family share” of expenses for this school year. The average loan size is about $7,000, said Patricia Coye, director of financial aid. last_img read more
