Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel picks preferred winner from Liverpool and Real Madrid clash

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says he would prefer to play Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals after his side booked their place in the last four of the competition. The Blues were beaten 1-0 by Porto in the second leg of their quarter-final clash in Seville but still managed to prevail thanks to last week’s 2-0 victory at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Tuchel can now relax ahead of tomorrow night’s action when Liverpool will look to overturn a 3-1 deficit against Real Madrid.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are no stranger to a memorable European comeback but they are unable to rely on their 12th man this time around.

And when asked if he has a preference in regards to Chelsea’s next opponent, Tuchel highlighted that he’d prefer not to face Liverpool due to the fact they’re Premier League opposition.

“I don’t wish for nothing but in general, I like it not to play against English teams and teams from your own league,” he told BT Sport.

“It gives you a different feeling in European competition.

“Whoever wins it I think will deserve it but it’s far from over.

“I will watch it for sure and it’s a pleasure to watch it as a semi-finalist.

“Like I said it’s a great achievement and there is nothing decided yet.

“Liverpool is very strong at home and the Premier League is very strong.

“We take what we get and it’s a good situation for us.”

Chelsea look a real force to be reckoned with particularly on the European stage.

Tuchel has totally renovated their defence to rejuvenate the club’s fortunes and now they have a real chance of making the final in Istanbul.

Mehdi Taremi’s incredible acrobatics in stoppage time was not enough to inspire a late comeback for Porto, who can hold their heads high after a valiant effort.

Pundit Rio Ferdinand was also in agreement with Tuchel that playing another English club brings added pressure to the table…

“At Manchester United we played against Jose’s [Mourinho] Chelsea and the pressure was just different.

“You play against people you know and losing feels worse because it’s in your country.

“We played Barcelona and you go away and lose and you remind yourself of it, the media and fans don’t but lose to an English team, everywhere you walk it’s there, in your face.

“I agree with him. When you play a European team from somewhere else it feels like a European tie.”

Trump hotels dropped as preferred partner by luxury travel agency

The luxury travel agency Virtuoso will no longer list Trump Organization properties on its website, a spokesperson for the company said.

A Virtuoso spokeswoman confirmed in a statement reported by multiple outlets that Trump hotels were no longer a preferred partner of the company, and as of last week the properties were no longer listed on its website.

“As of March 8, 2021, Trump Hotels are no longer part of the Virtuoso network,” Misty Ewing Belles, head of Virtuoso’s public relations department, said in a statement to Zenger News,[1] which first reported the move.


“Virtuoso considers many variables when reviewing both existing and new network participation. Out of respect for all involved parties, and as a general policy, we do not share comments regarding our non-renewal and exit decisions,” she added.

Further information about why the Trump Organization’s relationship with Virtuoso ended was not initially available.

The Hill has reached out to the Trump Organization for comment.

A travel industry analyst told The Washington Post[2] that agencies in Virtuoso’s network can still book clients at properties linked to the Trump Organization, but will no longer get any perks that preferred partners receive. 

“It’s a big deal because Virtuoso is very well-respected in the industry,” analyst Henry Harteveldt, of the Atmosphere Research Group, told the newspaper. “It serves a very elite base of customers and its actions are often studied by others. With Virtuoso doing this, some travel agencies that may have been debating whether or not to do it could decide well, if Virtuoso has done this, we too will end our professional relationship with the Trump hotels.”

It Just Got Easier to Discover Games on Xbox in Your Preferred Language

With so many exciting games on the market, it’s understandable that gamers may do some homework before committing to a title: that can entail reading reviews, looking up technical features, or just making sure a game supports the way we prefer to play. But it shouldn’t feel like research. Today we’re happy to announce updates to the Microsoft Store on Xbox and the Xbox Game Pass app to show you which languages a game supports at a glance. 

You can now easily determine whether a game contains any in-game language support based on a ‘Languages’ label before you even open the product details page. In-game language information is being collected for three elements of the gaming experience – a title’s interface, audio and subtitles – across 27 languages. We’ve already added language tags to hundreds of games and will add more over time.  

With this update, when you log into the Microsoft Store on Xbox or the Xbox Game Pass app, you can easily see which languages a game supports, making it easier to decide if you’d like to purchase or play that title. This view will also show what aspects of the game have been localized for a given language, including the game’s interface (game controls and on-screen menus, for example), the spoken audio you’ll hear from the characters, and subtitles corresponding to that audio. To make it even easier, the language you select as the default for your console will surface to the top of the list; you won’t have to scroll. 

Xbox Supported Languages

The addition of language tags to the Microsoft Store on Xbox and in the Xbox Game Pass app on consoles is an important step toward our goal of making you and your friends feel at home when you play on Xbox. This update will make that easier, and help bring the joys of gaming to more people. Stay tuned, because later this year we will unveil more updates to make it even easier for you to find and play games that are right for you, meeting your unique preferences and needs. The world of gaming is vast and diverse, and we believe there is a perfect game or games for everyone – we’re here to make that process quicker and easier.

Thank you!
