The 31-year-old Lambert scored the winner on his international bow against Scotland earlier this month and also struck the only goal of the game in Saints’ Barclays Premier League opener at West Brom. Despite Lambert’s fine start to the campaign and his 15 goals in all competitions for Southampton last season, Pochettino decided to invest a reported £12.8million fee to bring Osvaldo to the south coast from Roma. “He has grown and progressed as well so overall I think he is a much more rounded player and not just in the football side but also in his personal way of being. It is true that in other countries many times incidents are exaggerated. “It is clear that players who have character, such as Osvaldo, have a certain character that they need to keep in check. But we have no doubt that he is going to be surrounded by a good group of people and that will enable him to play his best football for us.” Osvaldo became the third summer signing at St Mary’s following deals for defender Dejan Lovren and midfielder Victor Wanyama and, although Pochettino said he will be keeping a close eye on the market, he does not expect to make any further additions. “We are pretty pleased with the players we have brought in and we are not looking that much into other signings,” he added. “But we are also keeping an eye on the market to see if anything arises because different things could actually happen and we need to be able to react fast. “We are an ambitious club and we have an important project behind us. I think the project is very clear and it is very structured We are also adding into the mix three signings, three important signings that we felt we needed to improve the squad.” Press Association In his current system the Argentinian has room for only one out-and-out striker but he has backed the pair to work together well and believes the signing of Osvaldo could spur Lambert in to getting even better. “I don’t think they are that similar,” Pochettino said of the style of his two frontmen. “I think they could find it very easy to play together. But we will be gauging that as the season unfolds, the Premier League is a tough competition and there are also two cup competitions. “You also have to think that all great players know how to get along on the pitch and know how to play well together, regardless of the characteristics that they have. “Rickie has shown time and time again that he is a very intellectual footballer and that he welcomes the competition. He welcomes the fact that Osvaldo is here because it will make him raise his game.” Pochettino, who managed Italy international Osvaldo when the two were at Espanyol, reckons the 27-year-old has developed in recent years, both on and off the pitch. He was suspended and fined by Roma in 2011 for punching team-mate Erik Lamela during a defeat in Serie A but Pochettino feels he has now moved on from such incidents. “I worked with him at Espanyol more than three years ago and I think he is a player who has matured in that time,” Pochettino said. Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has moved to reassure England’s latest hero Rickie Lambert that he remains in his plans despite the club-record signing of Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.
Strangely, yesterday lawyers of the Ministry of Justice (MOJ), the prosecuting arm of the government declined to coordinate with the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) to prosecute former Minister of Commence Miatta Beyslow, along with four other former senior public officials.The drama ensured at Criminal Court ‘C’, where the defendants are expected to be tried for their individual roles played in the alleged disappearance of over US$5 million from the sale of a Japanese Oil Grant , when the LACC’s legal team asked the court to include names of some lawyers of the MOJ on their team.They were arguing over the merit and demerit of the defendants’ US$2 million criminal appearance bond posted by the Accident and Casualty Insurance Company (ACICO).When the name of Atty. Bobby Livingstone, who had earlier participated in the case during the argument about justification of the defendants’ criminal appearance bond posted by the ACCICO, was mentioned , he was openly heard telling Judge Blamo Dixon, “Your honor, please I am not part of this case anymore.”He was not given the opportunity to explain reasons behind his abrupt withdrawal, but sat in the courtroom listening to representatives of the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) and the ACCICO authenticating the validity of the bond, which the LACC had asked the court to deny.Another MOJ lawyer, Atty. Oretha Davis, declined to join the LACC team when she was also approached by the LACC.Atty. Davis also did not make any comment yesterday; instead she sat along with Atty. Livingstone in the courtroom.Besides Attorneys Davis and Livingstone, the County Attorney for Montserrado County, Cllr. Daku Mulbah, who is one of the government’s lawyers was nowhere around the courtroom, as he did in previous corruption cases like the one with former Managing Director of the National Port Authority (NPA) Matilda Parker.However, a legal expert hinted the Daily Observer that the MOJ initially advised the LACC not to proceed with the case on grounds that they lacked sufficient evidence, an opinion the LACC rejected.The 2007 Act creating the LACC states, among others, that “The prosecution of cases of corruption shall be carried out by the Ministry of Justice in coordination with the Commission.”In the event, the Act says, an investigation report by the Commission “finds that there is substantial evidence of corruption and recommends that the person(s) or entity(ies) involved be formally charged and prosecuted, the case and the records thereof shall be forwarded to the Ministry of Justice along with a written request signed by the Executive Chairperson requesting that the case be prosecuted.“The Commission shall prepare and maintain a register of all cases forwarded to the Ministry of Justice for prosecution along with details indicating those accepted for prosecution, those not accepted for prosecution, and those actually prosecuted.“The Ministry of Justice may decline to prosecute a case of corruption recommended for prosecution if it determines that the evidence adduced by the Commission is manifestly inadequate. In such case, the Commission shall be given the opportunity to augment the evidence or to show that the evidence is in fact adequate. In considering the adequacy of evidence, due regard shall be given to the special competence of the Commission in matters of corruption and the law thereof,” the document noted.Notwithstanding, the Act says the Commission may, without the necessity of any reference to the Ministry of Justice or the prior consent of the Ministry, directly prosecute acts or cases of corruption if:“The accused is an elected official, a member of cabinet, a head or a senior official of a public agency, commission or corporation, or a senior official of the Ministry of Justice…” The legal expert concluded that the LACC relied on the Act to prosecute the defendants without the intervention of the MOJ.Beyslow and her alleged accomplices, including former Managing Director of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC), T. Nelson Williams, Jr., are being prosecuted by the LACC for the commission of the crimes of economic sabotage, misapplication of entrusted property, criminal conspiracy and facilitation and violation of the Public Procurement Concession Commission (PPCC) procedures and process.They were said to have connived with Aminata & Sons, a petroleum firm to allegedly dupe government of over US$5 million from the sale of the Japanese Oil Grant. Hearing into the bond continues.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

APMADRID — On the day Lionel Messi played his 600th match for Barcelona, Paco Alcacer got the job done for the Spanish league leaders, scoring in each half to beat Sevilla 2-1 on Saturday (Sunday Manila time).Barcelona’s 10th win in 11 matches kept the Catalan club four points in front of Valencia, which defeated Leganes for its seventh straight league victory.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Read Next Defending champion Real Madrid, 11 points behind Barcelona in fourth place, hosts Las Palmas on Sunday.LATE TRIUMPHAtletico Madrid avoided another poor result with a hard-fought win against Deportivo thanks to Thomas Partey’s late free kick.Atletico’s second win in nine matches ended a streak of three consecutive 1-1 draws in the league and Copa del Rey.“We knew how to suffer,” said Partey, who also scored on Tuesday in the draw with Qarabag in the Champions League. “In the end we deserved these three points.
