“We note that there have been violations of guidelines, rules and laws”Julie Brodtkorb, the leader of Norges Bank’s supervisory councilIn his introductory statement, Olsen said he understood the supervisory council’s desire to remove risk, but that any company board had to make trade-offs between different types of risk.“With the agreement that has now been established, the executive board believes that we have stopped possible conflicts of interest,” he said.Other points of contention raised at the hearing included the use of tax havens by parts of Tangen’s finance empire surrounding his main firm AKO Capital.While Brodtkorb repeatedly warned of the danger of undermining confidence in both Norges Bank and the GPFG, Olsen pointed several times to Tangen’s qualities and experience which he said had set him far above any other candidate for the CEO job.“He has unique experience gained from international asset management and can point to impressive results. At the same time, he is an innovative and committed leader with a deep understanding of the strategic challenges facing the oil fund,” Olsen said.The finance committee is now due to compile a report on the matter by 21 August, just days before Tangen is to take up his new job as NBIM CEO on 1 September, replacing long-term incumbent Yngve Slyngstad.While the parliamentarians do not have power to prevent Tangen’s appointment, any politically broad-based criticism of Norges Bank’s leadership could nevertheless put it under strain. Parliamentary overseers say laws were broken in the SWF chief hiring.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine? Read the digital edition here. The governor of Norway’s central bank was grilled by parliamentarians this afternoon about his handling of the highly-controversial hiring of hedge fund billionaire Nicolai Tangen as the new leader of the country’s NOK10.3trn (€970bn) sovereign wealth fund.Answering questions in a finance committee hearing, Øystein Olsen said: “We were aware that the appointment would attract attention. But, well, we did not foresee this whole storm that has happened.”Olsen’s testimony to the cross-party panel followed that of Julie Brodtkorb, the leader of Norges Bank’s supervisory council.She told the politicians that despite complex efforts made by the bank and Tangen to separate him from his vast financial interests during his coming tenure as CEO of Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM), the risk of conflicts of interest was still there. Brodtkorb referred to ethical guidelines for employees of Norges Bank which stated that staff could not have personal interests which could cause conflicts of interest or which could be perceived as giving rise to such conflicts.She said Norges Bank had made a written assurance that the risk of conflicts of interest between Tangen’s personal wealth and his role as leader of the Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG) had been, for all practical purposes, eliminated.“The supervisory council does not share this opinion,” she told the committee, which had co-incidentally been convened on Tangen’s 54th birthday.Asked by the committee’s leader, Labour Party member of parliament Hadia Tajik, about the handling of the appointment by Norges Bank’s executive board – which Olsen leads – and how it could affect the GPFG’s reputation, Brodtkorb said:“We do not want to give opinions or make statements about what the consequences are, but we note that there have been violations of guidelines, rules and laws.”

The Uruguayan said: “I actually think he is playing better than he did last year, but he is scoring fewer goals. “It’s about finding a balance. We don’t want him to be the best player on the pitch every week without scoring, but nor do we want him to be awful and scoring a goal every now and then. “He needs to find the balance between playing well and scoring – and he will get there. “We need to keep on creating chances for him and it is only when we stop creating chances that he will have a problem. “There’s a big difference between a striker who doesn’t score because his team is not creating chances, and one who has chances but is missing them.” Wickham is not alone in enduring a barren spell in front of goal with none of Poyet’s three main frontmen – Scotland international Steven Fletcher and United States counterpart Jozy Altidore are the others – having yet registered this season. But as he heads into Saturday’s home clash with Stoke, which will provide Sunderland with their latest attempt to secure a first Premier League win of the season, Poyet is happy that the youngster has improved significantly as a player during their time together. The 46-year-old said: “He is holding the ball the ball up better now, and I think that’s due to the way we train and the fact that he knows just what we want him to do. The 21-year-old striker scored five times in three Barclays Premier League appearances at the end of the last campaign to help drag the Black Cats back from the brink of relegation. Poyet, who recalled the former Ipswich frontman from a loan spell at Leeds to hand him his big chance, has installed Wickham as his first-choice lone striker this time around and although he is yet to open his account, the manager is convinced he is offering even more to the team. Gus Poyet is confident Connor Wickham is playing better now than when his goals helped spark Sunderland’s remarkable recovery last season. “It’s not just about doing it in games, it’s also about taking care of the ball every day in training, and he does that. “He has been impressive and he has been a massive player for us. I enjoy watching him and I just want to start seeing him put the ball in the net.” Poyet will welcome defender Wes Brown (calf) back to the squad. However, loan signing Sebastian Coates is out with a thigh injury, while midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini remains a doubt with an ankle problem. Mark Hughes is hoping to take full advantage of Sunderland’s struggles in front of goal as he prepares to take his Stoke side back to Wearside for the second time in under two weeks. Hughes believes his side’s counter-attacking style of play is perfectly suited to capitalising on any frustrations felt by the Black Cats as they push for points at the Stadium of Light. Hughes, who led his side to a 2-1 win over the same opponents in last month’s Capital One Cup clash, told his club’s official website: “They seem to be struggling at the moment and drawing a lot of games. If they are a bit blunt up front hopefully we can capitalise on that. “We’re very much in a positive frame of mind after Monday and we’re going into a game against opponents we have played quite recently and overcome. “It’s different in the Premier League – they will make changes and we probably will as well – and they will want to make amends but that may help us to a certain extent because we will always be a threat on the break.” Potters full-back Phil Bardsley spent six years at Sunderland before leaving for the Britannia Stadium this summer and has already tasted victory against his former club having played a full part in the cup success. And the Scotland international wants more of the same this time. “We have already been up there once this season and managed to win the game, so hopefully we can use that to our advantage in this game too,” he told Stoke City Player. “It was a little bit strange when we went up there last week for the cup game because I spent so long up there, and still have a lot of people I am close to at the club. “I’m a professional footballer though and I am a Stoke City player now. My only priority is doing everything I possibly can to help us record the three points from the game.” Monday’s 1-0 win over Sunderland’s north-east neighbours Newcastle came at a price with Mame Biram Diouf limping off with an injury which will keep him out of Saturday’s clash.

The 24-year-old has worked under the likes of Jose Mourinho and Roberto Mancini but it appears Rodgers is the one who has pushed the Italy international furthest out of his comfort zone. “Right now, I think Mario has a very interesting development for his career,” Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola told RMC. “He has found a coach who asks of him things that had never been requested of him until now, including the discipline of running without the ball. “This allows him to grow as a person and as a football player. He’ll come out even stronger. “He is proud of his team (Liverpool) and that is the most important.” Balotelli has had a less-than-impressive start to his Anfield career after a £16million move from AC Milan in the summer. He has started only once since November 8 – in the Europa League exit to Besiktas last week – and has scored only four goals, all in different competitions, and just one in the Premier League. Having been an unused substitute for the second successive match Balotelli, after the midweek win over Burnley, posted a cryptic message on Instagram. The Italian wrote: “Someone doesn’t like me but differently (sic) of what they say about me I’m a team player and I’m so proud of my team, of this win and of these fans! Let’s keep going. Bravi Ragazzi!!! YNWA !!!” Press Association Mario Balotelli’s agent claims manager Brendan Rodgers is pushing the Liverpool striker further than anyone has before in his career.

Head down, man down · Freshman running back Ronald Jones II currently leads all Trojan rushers with 466 yards this season. His four touchdowns on the ground share the team lead, along with redshirt senior Tre Madden. – Tal Volk | Daily TrojanIt was another strong, physical and competitive practice for the Trojans. Interim head coach Clay Helton kept the team’s emphasis on the basics.“I think these techniques and fundamentals are really paying off,” Helton said. “It’ll be critical in this game.”Defensive line coach Chris Wilson also emphasized technique with his players. Looking to Cal, the Trojans will need to be able to shut down quarterback Jared Goff. Wilson noted that Goff is “the best” in college football.“[Goff is] accurate. He’s smooth in the pocket,” Wilson said. “He can make every throw … He’s what you look for.”With the strong performance from the defense against Utah, Wilson said he was impressed with the continually strong play from the freshmen.“They’re fun, they’re talented, they like to play,” Wilson said. “They really want to be really good football players.”Specifically, freshman inside linebacker Cameron Smith boasted three interceptions and a team-high nine tackles. Though Smith was dominant, he hasn’t let his strong performance have an effect on his practice. His main focus is on the team’s play as a whole.“I want to be there for my teammates,” Smith said. “And help my team as much as possible.”Smith is also looking to continue to improve his game.“I’m trying to learn as much as possible,” Smith said. “And to make the plays when they’re there.”Not only do the Trojans have freshmen starters, but they also have much-needed depth. This depth has been especially beneficial with the injuries over the last couple of games. Helton mentioned that red shirt wide receivers Steven Mitchell Jr. and Darreus Rogers have both started playing a bit more. Left tackle Chad Wheeler was practicing and will be good to go for Saturday.With the freshman starters, the Trojans have added versatility on the field.“I think our youth and talent is what shines so brightly here at ‘SC,” Helton said. “I think there’s a tremendous future for this University.”Freshman cornerback Iman Marshall had two pass interference calls against Utah, but Helton isn’t worried because Marshall is an aggressive player. Helton even pointed out that Marshall is turning into a “premier corner.”“He’s so big and strong, he’s an absolute weapon,” Helton said. “I don’t want to take that part of the game away from him.”On the offense, Helton will look for tailback Ronald Jones II to get more snaps on the ball because of his continued performances. Not only has Jones been successful on the field, but he also has been putting in hard work and time during practice to become a more complete player.“As you produce, your role increases,” Helton said. “That’s just the nature of football.”Against Cal, defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox wants to see the team remain consistent. Against Notre Dame, the defense missed some coverage assignments, but they made adjustments and limited those mistakes against Utah. Wilcox credits the improvements to mental intensity, focus and consistent performances.“We just need to be more consistent overall,” Wilcox said.To beat Cal, the Trojans will have to shut down Goff and Cal’s running game.“As an offense, they’re extremely explosive,” Wilcox said. “It’ll be a great challenge for us.”Helton spent time working with the offensive line during practice. As the son of an offensive line coach, Helton knows the importance of having a strong line.“I just want them to feel the intensity and passion that I have for that group,” Helton said. “For us to win the championship, it’s going to be won in the trenches.”Sophomore wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has continued to be a strong point for the Trojans’ offense.“[Smith-Schuster] reminds me so much of the great ones that have been here,” Helton said.Helton pointed out that Smith-Schuster is always competing like it’s a game. Helton talked about how he’s always playing at his top gear.“It’s his nature,” Helton said. “He only knows one speed, God bless him.”For the Trojans to beat Cal, they will need to stay focused on their fundamentals and carry their dominant momentum from the Utah game.
