The Barcelona coach spoke at Movistar Champions League after the tie in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16With what feeling leaves Naples, are you finally satisfied with the tie after all that has happened?It has been a fairly even game. We have had more control, but none of the teams have generated too many scoring chances. We have not found the spaces. It is a draw that is a good result, considering that there is a return game at home.They have finished the first part without throwing at goal.The reality is that. I would highly appreciate the defensive game that has made Naples, with the ten players within the area. It has been difficult for us to find the interiors inside. We already knew it was a matter of patience. In the end, when you insist, you find the spaces. They could no longer swing so much, we found the goal and with some more patience we would have made the 1-2.They run out of Busquets or Vidal for the return and Piqué is injured. Planning leaves you with few players.But we will not play with nine or ten players in the round, we will get eleven. Piqué is the ankle. We already knew this and we are aware of the situation. We will work with what we have.The technician spoke later at a press conference.How do you rate the role of Vidal?You have to read the game well. In the offensive work it cost us to open spaces and had to open and in the defensive work it helped us a lot. He has done what we requested. Is the result good?Yes, it has cost us to generate. They defended us well and took advantage of the occasion they had. We lacked a point of clarity to get through that defense. In the second part the game was opened a little more and we could do more damage. They have made a great match. I give the game as good.Does weight gain that is not enough?I disagree on everything that is said. We need more clarity above. Sometimes it is a matter of patience. We have controlled cons and at home I think we will have more options and it is difficult for a team to defend itself so well for so long.Now he has 10 players plus two goalkeepers to play around. Can you win the Champions League like this?I hope to recover Alba and Sergi Roberto. You can win, we will be optimistic.How is Piqué?Let’s see what problem you have. It is too early.Should Vidal have to control himself?I have not seen very well what has happened. It has been a bit severe, the card is fine, but the second is excessive. They are nervous things.What summary does the game?We have done things well, we have had control of the game. We must value the work of this team. I think the result is fair.Do you have the feeling that some players play outside in Europe?I think not. We have played very complicated matches. The team when playing a tie may be more careful.

Dietmar Hamann insists Arsenal have the ability to win the Premier League and go a long way in the Champions League this season – and they must believe they can do it.The Gunners are currently second in the league and got their European campaign back on track with a victory over Bayern Munich at the Emirates on Tuesday night.And former Liverpool star Hamann claims that win over the German giants should instil the confidence Arsene Wenger’s side needs to go on and enjoy a successful season.Hamann said on the Colin Murray show: “Yesterday’s game will give them huge belief. They beat Bayern Munich fair and square and there is no reason why they can’t go to Munich, where it will be the same game because Arsenal played like the away team on Tuesday night, and win.“They just have to show that belief because yesterday, for the first time, I saw Arsenal attack with purpose and belief. This is something they have been lacking in the Champions League, especially when it comes to the knockout stages.“They have got so much pace in that team and so much guile – [Mesut] Ozil in full flow is a tremendous player to watch – and there’s no reason for them to believe they can’t win the league this year and go far in the Champions League, if they do get out of the group.”

The MOU was signed by the Botswana Investment and Trade Centre and Trade and Investment South Africa, a unit of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), at the South Africa-Botswana Business Forum.A high level ministerial delegation from South Africa that included DTI Minister Rob Davies, and his Botswana counterpart, Dorcas Makgato-Malesu, also participated in the proceedings. Also at the forum were also prominent business leaders from various sectors.Strengthening economiesThe signing also marks a significant move to strengthen existing economic ties between the two countries.“We are looking to promote deeper mutually beneficial economic relations between the two countries,” said Davies.South Africa and Botswana are already trading partners, with local companies having a major presence in various sectors of Botswana’s economy such as mining, housing, food and beverages, construction, retail, hotels and leisure, banking and medical services.Zuma’s spokeperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement investment in infrastructure was an important focus of the visit. This was especially the case if the two countries are to work together on large scale projects such as cross-border infrastructure as well as industrial and energy developments.According to Davies, the continent is the new growth frontier.“It is a place that investors can no longer ignore,” he said, adding that there is a need for the continent to move into more value added and economically diversified activities.“We need to industrialise the continent and re-industrialise South Africa’s economy because this sector has taken a lot of strain,” he added. “We have to create business opportunities for industrial development.”This was reiterated by Pumla Ncapayi, the DTI’s deputy director general, who said there is a need to move away from mineral-based economies only, towards manufacturing-driven sectors.Speaking on behalf of the Black Business Council, spokesperson Sandile Zungu said the two countries are in a good position to work together as they share common challenges.“We need to beneficiate, increase manufacturing capacity and forge better collaboration as regional economies,” he said.Makgato-Malesu took the opportunity to speak on Botswana’s status as a rising investment hub.“We are looking for the type of investment that will help us accelerate industrialisation and result in economic diversification of the economy of Botswana,” she said.Building on existing relationshipsIn his address, Zuma referred to the strong historical, economic, social, political and neighbourly relations that the two countries share, saying these were strengthened during South Africa’s liberation struggle.“Enhancing close economic cooperation between Botswana and South Africa is a priority,” he said. “We believe that the time for Africa has come to utilise its resources for the benefit of itself.”Following on Zuma’s encouraging message to the business communities of the two countries to take advantage of new opportunities, Zungu said:“The argument for cooperation between the two countries is sound, and together the two can achieve so much more.”He added that the role of business on the continent can extend beyond financial investment only.“The business approach of only being profit driven is a bygone era,” he said.“Business people must take cognisance of the fact that there is high unemployment in the region and they must think how their businesses can meet this need, but at the same time achieve accelerated growth.”
