On July 21, 2000, the man of the momengo, Erling Braut Haaland, was born in Leeds. Borussia Dortmund striker began to surprise at the beginning of the year in Salzburg and in his jump to German football he is being able to raise his level further as he showed with his goals to Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the round of 16.Precisely, after this new performance, Jan-Aage Fjortoft, former partner of Alf-Inge Haaland, father of the striker, wanted to highlight his city of birth, Leeds, as a great reason for this level. “What did you expect from someone who was conceived in the Leeds locker room?” Said the former Norwegian footballer from Boro, Sheffield or Eintracht in Frankfurt, among others. 17 The 19-year-old forward was born in Leeds while his father and now representative, Alf-Inge Haaland, played for Leeds United, famous Yorkshire team that now plays in the Championship (English Second Division).Alf-Inge Haaland played from 1989 to 2013. The midfielder started in the lower categories of the Norwegian Bryne, where he debuted as a professional in 1989. There he was playing until 1994, when he signed for Nottingham Forest. In 1997 he arrived at Leeds, where he played until 2000. In July of that same year, Alf Inge was already a Manchester City player but still, Erling was born in Yorkshire County. In 2003, he temporarily left football because of a serious injury caused by Roy Keane and in 2011 he tried again in Norway playing briefly for Rosseland. Now, he is focused on his son’s career. Alf-Inge was key to the arrival of his son in Dortmund and collaborated closely with Mino Raiola in the transfer.
IRVINE – The embattled chancellor of the University of California, Irvine, avoided a public rebuke from faculty Thursday as he apologized for withdrawing an offer to make a liberal legal scholar the founding dean of the university’s new law school. “I have learned a very painful lesson this week. I made a series of difficult decisions without consulting senior faculty early enough or often enough,” Chancellor Michael V. Drake said at the emergency meeting of the Academic Senate. “I’m sorry for this and I apologize sincerely for the problems that it caused.” Drake ignited a nationwide debate about academic freedom last week when he abruptly withdrew the offer from legal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky. Chemerinsky, an international expert on constitutional law who represented exposed CIA agent Valerie Plame, said Drake told him the offer was being withdrawn because he was “too politically controversial.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He re-extended the offer – which Chemerinsky accepted – on Monday after a private weekend meeting. On Thursday, faculty met in a 400-seat lecture hall to decide whether to censure Drake for his actions, wavering between adopting two resolutions – one that some called a harsh censure, and another that was less critical of the chancellor. In the end, the 43-member voting body of the larger Academic Senate voted to table both resolutions for further study. The decision came after Drake reiterated that he had made both decisions on his own. He added that he had felt “uncertain” about Chemerinsky for the post of founding dean, despite his faith in the scholar’s impressive credentials. He did not offer any explanation of why that was, but said he now was reassured and felt Chemerinsky was the best choice.
