Jobless Wenger frustrated with current status

first_imgFormer Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has opened up on his frustration on being without a job since he left the London side.Rumours were rife that he was very close to agreeing on a deal to take over AC Milan, but the man himself insisted it was “fake news”.Though he hasn’t yet confirmed where his next job will be, the veteran is keen to get back into coaching.“I don’t feel retired at all but I feel frustrated,” Wenger told Football Italia via BeIn Sports.“I am basically a competitor and what I miss – honestly there are many things I don’t miss at all, like all of the stuff around the game you have to deal with.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“But of course, the day, the competition, the achievement that you can do together, sharing emotions, sharing competitions, ups, and downs with others, of course, you miss that because I spent my life in that“I’m not finished. People always want to put you in cases, like you are retired or you are finished. People want to finish you completely when you have got older.“But as long as you have an appetite for life I will go on.“One advantage I have from 35 years in the game is sharing what I know with other people and if you don’t do that then life is useless.“You should not leave this world without trying to give something to the people.”last_img read more

2019 Hyundai Kona Electric starts at 36450 tops out at 45000

Throw some hydrogen in the mix. 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 0 Hyundai Chevrolet Hyundai Preview • 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric: A fun EV with competitive numbers More about 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric More From Roadshow Tagscenter_img It might not be available everywhere for a while, but locations that receive the 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric will find it’s not too expensive. It can get expensive, however, if you start packing on the features.Hyundai announced this week that the 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric will go on sale in select locations with a starting price of $36,450 before destination. Factoring in both destination and the $7,500 federal tax incentive, the price drops to $29,995. There are two other trims beyond base, but they get expensive in a hurry — the midlevel Limited trim will cost $41,150 before destination and incentives, and the top-floor Ultimate trim will cost $44,650.It’s important to note that the incentive is a dollar-for-dollar reduction of a person’s tax liability, not a point-of-sale discount, and not everyone will have paid $7,500 in federal tax in a given year, so not every buyer will realize the aforementioned effective price. Enlarge ImageThe Kona Electric makes a bunch of its safety systems standard, while its chief competitor hides them in options packages. Hyundai The Kona Electric comes with a 201-horsepower, 290-pound-foot electric motor that offers an EPA-estimated 258 miles of range with its 64-kWh battery. The base SE trim comes with a whole load of standard kit, including heated front seats, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and nearly every safety system under the sun. As for the higher trims, the Kona Electric Limited adds LED headlights, automatic high beams, a sunroof, leather seats, a power driver’s seat, wireless device charging and a 315-watt Infinity sound system. The top-top Ultimate trim includes all that good stuff, in addition to parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers and stop-and-go functionality for the adaptive cruise control. The Ultimate trim also packs an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation.Let’s quickly compare that with the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV. Its electric motor is a bit less powerful at 200 hp and 266 lb-ft, and its range is a smidge lower at 238 miles. The Bolt EV is also more expensive to start, at $37,495 before destination. All trims of Bolt EV have a 10.2-inch touchscreen, but you have to buy into the $41,780 Premier trim to get heated seats and basic safety systems — a proper safety suite is a paid option on top of that price.It may take some time for all 50 states to get the Kona Electric, though. To start, Hyundai will limit the car’s rollout to ZEV states (states with zero-emission-vehicle requirements), because high demand will keep its Korean-based supply on the low side. Over time, Hyundai hopes to expand the car’s availability to non-ZEV states, but there’s no estimate for how long that’ll take.Originally published on Dec. 14, 2018.Update, Jan. 28, 2019: Added new pricing info.
