Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now While Terry is currently chasing promotion to the Premier League with Aston Villa, Lampard has transitioned into a media career, working as a pundit for BT Sport and the BBC.He will be a part of the latter broadcaster’s team for the 2018 World Cup in Russia and, while Lampard is enjoying providing his insights, he maintains that he still harbours an ambition of managing the Blues.“I have thought about coaching and I have been working at Chelsea with the academy all year, around my media stuff,” Lampard exclusively told Goal during the BBC Media Day.”I am enjoying the media and it’s been great for me to finish, have some different time to work on my coaching, but also have breaks with the family, plus work in the media. That allows me to keep one foot in the game, so I’ve got my eye on both.“Chelsea, of course, is like a dream job that will be there one day. But that is not always the route that it takes, so it might take me to go somewhere else before I can ever do that. We will see, but I certainly have ambitions to do it.“How could I not take it if Chelsea offered me the job? Chelsea are my club and I feel like I have a lot to offer. But that’s obviously for other people to decide, for important people, if and when I am ready to do that.”Lampard has repeatedly been linked with managerial jobs, and has recently been placed in the frame for jobs in the Championship, with Ipswich Town and Derby County.The ex-midfielder, who played at three World Cups and won 106 caps for England, believes that clubs need to be more open-minded regarding appointing young managers, as he insists there is unearthed talent out there.“Young managers need to be given a chance,” he added.”It’s very easy to say ‘why are people taking a chance on an inexperienced manager?’. If you never do that, then how are we going to develop young managers?”Eventually, we want young, fresh managers in this country. Well, give people a chance and you might find out they are actually pretty good.”There is set to be a vacancy at Chelsea in the near future, with Antonio Conte set to depart his role despite ending his second season in charge by winning the FA Cup.Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri remains the front-runner to take his place , with the Serie A outfit having already held talks with Carlo Ancelotti over taking charge in Naples.The BBC will provide extensive coverage of World Cup 2018 across TV, radio and online from June 14.last_img

The Steppe Cement share price had fallen to a six-week low of under 42p at one stage.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Steppe Cement — which manufactures cement in Kazakhstan — has slumped due to a negative reception to full-year financials.Kazakh sales tipped to slow in 2021Sales volumes at the company slipped 4% year-on-year in 2020 to 1.65m tonnes, it said. This annual droppage came in spite of sales growth in the broader Kazakh cement market. Volumes across the country rose 6% from 2019 levels to 9.4m tonnes.The AIM-quoted share said that its own local sales decreased 6% “due to milling limitations during two months of the high season.” Export sales rose 20% year-on-year, however.Production at Steppe Cement’s Karaganda cement factory in central Kazakhstan ran at 85% of capacity last year. It said that Line 5 produced 938,074 tonnes of cement last year because of two planned maintenance stops. Line 6 recorded output of 707,670 tonnes, meanwhile, in line with guidance.Looking ahead, Steppe Cement said “the market demand in 2021 seems strong despite the effects of Covid-19 temporary lockdowns”. However, the business expects demand growth in Kazakhstan to cool from last year’s levels. It predicts an increase of between 2% and 4% “as oil prices have recovered and the government stimulus packages continue.”The company is expecting total production at its Karaganda asset to rise to 1.75m tonnes in 2021.Steppe Cement’s profits grow despite revenues dropSteppe Cement’s lower volumes in 2020 caused total revenues to drop 6% year-on-year to $74.8m. Still, this didn’t derail strong profits growth at the business and on a pre-tax basis these rose 14% to $11.1m.This was also despite a 3% drop in average selling prices, to $45.40 per tonne. Steppe Cement’s cost of production per tonne fell by the same percentage from 2019 levels thanks to lower electricity and coal costs. General and administrative costs rose by $600,000 year-on-year to $6.2m because of higher provision for doubtful debts and the withholding of $400,000 of tax on transfers from its Karcement arm to the holding company.Capital investment at the company slowed in 2020 and Steppe Cement spent less than $1m in total. This reduced spending was directed towards packing improvements and steps to reduce power consumption. The reduction was due to “Covid-19 restrictions mostly during the summer of 2020,” which meant the company didn’t have a full complement of engineers.Steppe Cement has targeted capital investment of $3m in 2021 to make up for the lower expenditure last year. It expects maintenance capital expenditure to fall from 2020’s levels of $2m too. This is why the Steppe Cement share price has slumped 14%!
