Price tag doesn’t make me automatic United choice – Mkhitaryan

first_imgMidfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan acknowledges his hefty price tag does not guarantee him a starting place at Manchester United and is prepared to fight for a spot in manager Jose Mourinho’s first team.Mkhitaryan, who was voted Bundesliga Players’ Player of the Season in the previous campaign, joined from Borussia Dortmund earlier this month for a transfer fee estimated at 30 million pounds ($39.32 million) by the British media.“It doesn’t matter if they buy me for, I don’t know, 38 million or 40 million, I am not guaranteed to play the games,” Mkhitaryan told British media.“So I am trying to do my best during the training to earn this place to play and then we will see, because I don’t think I will play every game, depending on the tactical situation, depending on the opponent.”Mourinho expects Mkhitaryan to adapt seamlessly to the physicality of English football due to the 27-year-old’s ability to break open the tightest defence with his passing skills and astute game reading.Mkhitaryan refused to make any promises but hoped the pressure of playing for United would only make him better.“I never promise something, I always say that I will try. Because if you promise something and you don’t do it you will always be under pressure,” the Armenia international said.“Because for me this is a new challenge and I like difficulties, I like to win the difficulties because when you win the difficulties it makes you stronger, so I’m trying to do everything to come up to a new level.”last_img read more

Military nears holy grail Pizza that lasts years

first_imgNATICK, Mass. — They call it the holy grail of ready-to-eat meals for soldiers: a pizza that can stay on the shelf for up to three years and still remain good to eat.Soldiers have been asking for pizza since lightweight individual field rations — known as meals ready to eat, or MREs — replaced canned food in 1981 for soldiers in combat zones or areas where field kitchens cannot be set up.Researchers at a U.S. military lab in Massachusetts are closing in on a recipe that doesn’t require any refrigeration or freezing.“You can basically take the pizza, leave it on the counter, packaged, for three years and it’d still be edible,” said Michelle Richardson, a food scientist at the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center.Scientists at the Natick labs also are responsible for developing equipment and clothing that improves soldiers’ combat effectiveness and their survival, but the quest for good pizza has become known as the holy grail there.Pizza is one of the most requested items when soldiers are asked every year what they’d like to see in their rations, said Richardson, who has spent nearly two years developing the recipe in a large kitchen full of commercial equipment.last_img read more
