LocalNews Saturday NOT a public holiday by: – December 2, 2011 Tweet 7 Views no discussions Share Share Sharing is caring! Share Cabinet Secretary Felix Gregoire Cabinet Secretary Felix Gregoire is dismissing claims that government has set aside Saturday as a public holiday. Many Dominicans believe that the national day of mourning which will be recognized tomorrow for the official funeral of Dominica’s Goodwill Ambassador Jeff Joe is a national holiday but the Cabinet Secretary says Dominican businesses are expected to operate as normal. “Saturday December 03, 2011 has been declared a national day of mourning. That day is definitely not a national or public holiday. When we say national day of mourning we expect people to be solemn in their dealing. We expect the radio stations to play soft music such as gospel, we expect persons to be dressed in black and white. To be thinking about, in this case Jeff Joseph and his life. It is certainly not a public holiday,” he stressed.Dominica Vibes News
“For me he is one of the best players in the history of this country,” Mata said at his unveiling. “He is unbelievable, he can score and he can assist. “I will try to connect with him as much as I can. I will try to find the gaps in rival defences, try to be in the positions I have to be in to assist the strikers.” Asked about the pressure that comes with his price tag, Mata said: “I like the pressure, I think it’s good for a footballer to try to improve. “People are expecting big things from me and I am looking forward to it.” Mata, who will wear the number eight shirt, said he was attracted by the character of United and their reputation for never giving up, even claiming they were not out of the Barclays Premier League title race. “It’s a new challenge for me,” he said. “This one was a massive challenge for me. “What I like the most about this club is the character. I think if another club were in this position in the league, I think it would be very difficult to come back and take first position, but this club can do it. Juan Mata has revealed he is relishing the chance to link up with Wayne Rooney at Manchester United as well as the pressure of his club-record price tag. “This is the real image I have from Man United, always fighting to win titles, always coming back from difficult moments. “The team is really good, the squad is really good. This season they have had some unlucky moments they didn’t deserve. Hopefully from now until the end of the season we will win as many games as we can.” Mata revealed the move was “really important” to his hopes of making Spain’s squad for the World Cup, and said he was “really happy” to be at United. “I just wanted to go to a place where I would feel happy,” he added. Asked about what position he would prefer to play in, Mata diplomatically responded: “I think that’s a question for him (Moyes). I would like to play anywhere.” Moyes emphasised his surprise that the club were able to do such a deal mid-season and said he would bring in more players of Mata’s calibre. “I am thrilled, I got wind a month or two ago it could be possible, but I never thought we would pull it off,” he said. “When we got the sniff there was a chance Juan could be available we went after it right away. Congratulations to the club and (executive vice-chairman) Ed Woodward for getting the deal done.” The Scot added: “There will be more players like Juan in the future, I’ve no doubt about that.” The Spain international has moved to Old Trafford from Chelsea for £37.1million. The 25-year-old should provide the creativity and invention which has been sadly lacking from David Moyes’ team this season, and he cannot wait to play alongside Rooney. Press Association
