Sergio Agüero is back

Barcelona have brought the Argentine striker back to LaLiga Santander, a decade after his memorable and prolific spell at Atletico de Madrid.  

Sergio Agüero is back LaLiga Santander. The former Atlético de Madrid striker has confirmed his long-awaited move to Barcelona, after spending a very successful decade in the Premier League with Manchester City. Here are five things about the Argentine that you might not know.  

He’s a lifelong Independiente fan 

It was at Argentine club Independiente that Agüero broke through, joining at the age of nine and climbing the ranks rapidly to start playing for the first team. When he left in 2006 to move to Europe, he had spent almost a decade at the club and there was a bond there that remains to this day. When Independiente were relegated in 2013, Agüero considered returning to the club to try to fire them back to the top tier. In the end, he stayed with Manchester City and added to his legendary status there. 

He’s a very close friend of Lionel Messi 

Agüero arrives at the club that one of his best friends has called home for two decades. The striker has a special bond with Lionel Messi, and they’ve been roommates on Argentina duty since forming part of the victorious squad at the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship. At senior level, they’ve played together for Argentina 77 times and counting. Agüero has said that Messi is like a brother to him, while the Barcelona captain is also the godfather to the former Manchester City player’s son Benjamin.  

He’s inextricably tied to Maradona 

Agüero has often been compared to and is closely connected to Diego Maradona. ‘Kun’ broke the legendary number 10’s long-standing record as the youngest player to feature in Argentina’s top division, aged just 15 years, one month and five days. Agüero later married Maradona’s daughter Gianinna, having a son – Benjamin. Benjamin’s is Agüero’s son, Maradona’s grandson and Messi’s godchild. That’s quite something!  

He has a Lord of the Rings-inspired tattoo in Elvish 

The centre-forward has a tattoo on his right forearm that is inspired by JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, written in the fictional Elvish language. However, he admitted in an interview in 2019 that he still hadn’t seen the movies and that he doesn’t know what the words inked on his arm are supposed to mean! 

He had a brief music career! 

Early in his playing career, the Argentine band Los Leales performed a song titled ‘Kun Agüero’ in which Sergio featured. His role was more than just a cameo, as the song starts with Agüero singing the entire first verse. The song is of the cumbia genre, a popular type of music in South America that the player has often said that he likes.

[SUMMARY] PM Announces PEMERKASA+ As The New MCO3.0 Stimulus Package #en

(PUTRAJAYA, MAY 31) Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin held a press conference to announce a new MCO 3.0 stimulus package called PEMERKASA+. It is a continuation of the initiatives that were previously introduced, including PRIHATIN and PEMERKASA.

He started by mentioning that the closure of the business sector will bring great impact to society, but the government will try their best to balance the lives and livelihood of the rakyat.

He mentioned that RM340 billion aid has been provided to the citizens during this pandemic. With an additional support fund, a total of RM322.5 billion will be channeled to further assist the citizens and the economy sector.

He then announced PEMERKASA+ aid package that is worth RM40 billion as the new initiative to help the rakyat that were impacted by the lockdown and the pandemic. It will be executed with 3 objectives:

  • Increase the capacity of the public healthcare system
  • Continue the ‘Prihatin’ Rakyat agenda
  • Support the business sectors

He also mentioned that another RM1 billion will be allocated to increase the capacity of the public health sectors and to extend the contracts of health personnel until 2022. RM450 million will be used to increase the amount of beds as well as ICU equipment in both the government and the private hospitals.

He has urged the authorities to expedite the national vaccination program, such as increasing vaccination centres and the drive-thru vaccinations.

He also urges the citizens to attend their vaccination appointments according to the schedule in order to achieve our targeted herd immunity.

He mentioned that the government will continue to provide ‘prihatin’ to the rakyat and as much support as possible. Therefore, an additional RM2.1 billion will be allocated to Bantuan Prihatin Rakyat (BPR) from end June, where RM500 will be provided to those with household income less than RM2500 and RM300 for households with monthly income between RM2,501 and RM5,000.

One month wage subsidy worth RM1.5 billion for eligible employees and employers will also be provided.

A three-month automatic loan moratorium or 50% payment reduction for six months will be given to B40 group, eligible SMEs that are not allowed to operate during the MCO, and those who lost their jobs.

He promises that the government will continue to support the economic sector, making sure cash flows of businesses are smooth – including microcredit by BSN and others.

Taxi drivers, school bus drivers, ride hailing drivers and tour guides who are affected during this lockdown period will be given a one-off RM500.

Electricity bills are given a 10% discount for the travelling sector, shopping malls, convention centers, theme parks and local airline offices from July to September 2021.

Stamp duty exemptions under the HOC campaign for property buyers will also be extended to 31 December 2021.

Sales tax will also be waived for new CKD and CBU passenger vehicles from Jun 30 till Dec 31, 2021.

He also announced that all ministers and deputy ministers will not be taking salaries for 3 months starting June 2021. All the salaries will be channeled back into the support fund.

Be afraid, be very afraid

Increasingly challenging' situation at Selangor quarantine centre due to  growing admissions: Health department - CNA
Image: Channel News Asia

There is no time to lose. Malaysia is at the top in the world in terms of new cases per million of population and the number keeps rising. The recovery rate is falling and the number of people dying is increasing.

New variants of the virus have mutated which are challenging the full effectiveness of available vaccines. Hospitals are full, frontliners stretched and stressed.

We are in a desperate situation. Yes, a full lockdown comes into force tomorrow but it is uncertain whether the ravages of the pandemic can be brought under control. The economy will certainly suffer. The people will suffer even more, those who live. Many are dying and will die.

The nation, the people and the government should move together to face this crisis which threatens to break the country. We are staring at the abyss. Three things must be done quick.

FIRST, the prime minister should form a government of national unity to manage this crisis. He has been urged by many for some time now to set up that emergency government, but has chosen to ignore such advice. He may feel his bargaining position may have been eroded by seeking to form such a government at this time with his back against the wall.

But this is not the time for political calculation, party or personality. This is a matter of national survival at so many levels. In any case, he will still be prime minister and, by riding above narrow politics, he would be doing himself a world of good showing statesmanship at the time of greatest need.

The national unity cabinet should comprise representatives from all political parties represented in Parliament, of course, but could include non-partisan competent professionals.

Yes, there is the risk of political parties and leaders double-crossing the prime minister but they will be exposed for all to see. If the national unity government is brought down, there is every justification to, indeed, declare an emergency, which will be a different ball game, with full powers in his hands, for there is no way a general election can be held. Holding one would be suicidal.

SECOND, end the state of emergency such as it is and reconvene Parliament. Parliament is the right and proper forum to discuss policy issues and to pass the necessary legislation. The present emergency has not got widespread support and its end will help the process of forming a common national purpose at this time, yes, of grave emergency.

There will be some grandstanding and idiots, in Parliament, but the speaker’s more active and intelligent role should help to contain such twits.

Indeed a People’s Advisory Council should be established to also give advice to the government — comprising representatives of civil society, business and professional bodies. It will be a source of sanity and objectivity — which could also highlight shortfalls and failures in parliamentary discussions.

The role of conventional and social media is critical to highlight the good and to differentiate it from the bad, whether people or policies, but reporting should be accurate and committed to the urgent common national good — containment of the virus and management of the risks.

With Parliament back in session, it should re-examine the statutory debt limit of 60 per cent of GDP, so that the government can issue Covid Recovery Bonds and take on other debt to help people and businesses under lockdown. It could be examined whether such bonds could be excluded from the calculation of government debt as it is an emergency that we are facing. Developed countries have bust all limits and are masters of quantitative easing.

With a national unity government and a Parliament making it accountable, the people and others would have the confidence to take up the special purpose bonds. There are other ways for the government to raise money that can be scrutinised, such as through agencies whose liabilities are not in the calculation of total debt.

THIRD, the people must adhere to SOPs strictly. However, they see double standards where big names and politicians flout the law and get away with it. This does not make for a successful regime of SOPs. When they see a government which is united of purpose and a Parliament fit for purpose and a People’s Advisory Council suited to the purpose — and the end of double standards — there will be national commitment and buy-in.

The people also see events which have caused spikes in Covid-19 cases which are irresponsible and entirely avoidable. Starting with the Tabligh cluster from February last year, to the Sabah election also last year in September and the Ramadan/Hari Raya surges this year, which showed laxity of enforcement and couldn’t-care less non-adherence by religious and political leaders and big shots, the people see the SOPs as an imposition only on them that do not contain the spread of the virus at all.

These cycles cannot continue. Otherwise, we are headed for Armageddon. We do not want to become a country and economy of grave-diggers.

The people are also angry with the slow speed of the vaccine roll-out. There has to be greater accountability and transparency. Right now, they are very angry, with many explanations they cannot accept.

There are many intricacies and power political play in the access to vaccines in the world. These should be explained with clarity and consistency. At the moment they only see moving targets which are not hit. They also see systems for applications for vaccination which do not work 100 per cent.

Whether 150,000 vaccines administered daily will achieve herd immunity by the end of this year, with previous targets and timelines not met, is a source of grave scepticism.

And the challenges will not end. Afterwards, there will be the issue of booster vaccinations. Of testing for antibodies. Even now of mass testing and a regime of efficient contact tracing. Of opening up social and economic life but not letting the guard down. Not easy, but the people — and the government and political leaders — must understand the change, some would say nature’s epochal correction, that has taken place.

With a national unity government, a functioning Parliament, further people representation to offer advice, no double standards and greater transparency there will be, if not a feel-good factor (how can there be given the enveloping pandemic), greater belief and hope among the people that the country is not running into the ground.

He also mentioned that ICU units in hospitals have reached their maximum capacity, and if a total lockdown had not been initiated, the healthcare system would have collapsed due to the overwhelming number of daily confirmed cases.

With this total lockdown, all social & economic activities are not allowed except the following:
