in a friendly match (Source: Reuters) Top News Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti was delighted with his side’s first-half performance in the 3-2 friendly victory over Chelsea on Tuesday but the Italian did not read too much into the German champions’ early dominance Bayern responded brilliantly to last week’s 4-0 drubbing by AC Milan in Shenzhen with a scintillating start against Chelsea as Thomas Mueller’s double after Rafinha’s pinpoint shot gave the Germans a 3-0 lead inside 26 minutes in Singapore “These games in this period are not so real Normally Chelsea’s defensive organisation is really good but maybe today they had more problems and (manager Antonio) Conte was trying out different players” Ancelotti told reporters “I am sure Chelsea will have great defensive organisation in the coming season but it’s only the pre-season and we did not want to spend too much energy pressing so we made the most of our counter-attacking chances” Mueller new loan signing James Rodriguez and winger Franck Ribery formed a formidable trio behind Polish striker Robert Lewandowski with the German’s two sublime strikes singled out for praise by Ancelotti “Thomas is very important as he is an intelligent player able to find space and despite not scoring a lot of goals last season was still very good” the Italian added after late goals in each half for Chelsea made the final score a lot closer “At the moment he looks more efficient in front of goal and that’s important for us The positions he takes on the pitch are very useful for the side” Rodriguez played his first full match since joining Bayern on a two-year load deal from Real Madrid and the Colombian winger was a constant menace to the Chelsea backline and unlucky not to open his account “His performance was good and it doesn’t matter if he didn’t score It’s important for him to gel with the others and he combined well with Mueller with Lewandowski and with Ribery” Ancelotti said Bayern next play Inter Milan at the

might face for voicing an opinion Related News Gul Panag says Indian celebrities do take a stand on issues but have to be prepared for the backlash The actress feels one has to be very strong to withstand the massive opposition they might face for voicing an opinion “Indian stars do take a stand look at what you do to them once they take a stand The backlash that comes you have to be prepared for it and I think (you) really grow a thick skin as well” Gul told PTI “But then the bread and butter gets affected because the power of the public narrative is such My point is the reason a lot of famous people will not take a stand is because of the fact that they would probably be unpopular” Recently Hollywood actress Meryl Streep’s speech criticising US President-elect Donald Trump was highly praised Several celebrities both in Hollywood and Bollywood raved about her brave comment Her speech however also drew the comparison with Indian stars with several people questioning whether the Indian film industry can take a political stand like that as well In the past stars like Shah Rukh Khan Aamir Salman have faced backlash owing to their comments on issues of the country and recently on the row over Pakistani actors working in Hindi films Gul who also contested elections as an Aam Aadmi Party candidate says both the “left wing and right wing” can shun people having opposing views When asked if the moment a celebrity associates itself with a political party a certain section starts shunning them Gul says “Not just a certain section not just political parties I think any celebrity who tends to challenge the narrative will get some backlash it depends on what the narrative is so it’s not always a right wing or a left wing narrative” Citing an example of a friend a “successful Bollywood actor who took a particular view on Pakistani actors not being welcomed in Indian films” the actress says he has been “ostracised by the ‘liberals’” Gul says the situation is such that her actor-friend who “also has a life outside of acting pursues hobbies like horse riding” now has been shunned even by the industry “I think everybody should have an opinion but the fact is he has been ostracised by the film industry at large for having that opinion I don’t agree with his opinion personally but that’s his opinion and he has been ostracised and that’s happened to the industry” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: IANS | Los Angeles | Published: May 29 2017 2:23 pm Ozzy Osbourne and wife Sharon

least 72 hours prior to the scheduled meeting the municipal secretary’s office rushed to deliver 41 additional proposals which include crucial civic works for the city The original agenda comprised only 24 proposals In the new heavy duty agenda of 64 proposals road works alone account for a bulk of the expenditure at Rs 1000 crore These include a Rs 483-crore proposal for works in the western suburbs and other works for the island city The rest of the agenda includes nine proposals from the storm water drains department among which is a crucial proposal for constructing the Guzderbandh
