Marion “Suge” Knight’s seven-bedroom, 9 -bath Malibu home has been placed on the market for $6.2 million, part of the rap music mogul’s financial overhaul under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The 8,272-square-foot Mediterranean-style mansion was built in 2001 and is located on a 6.79-acre lot in the hills above the Pacific Ocean. It has access to two beaches and is being sold with an additional 2.11 acres of land. The gated property, which includes a pool and tennis courts, was listed earlier this month by Coldwell Banker. An Internet listing says the home is being sold “as is,” and its sale is subject to approval by the bankruptcy court.last_img read more

Exclusive – Top stars DO care about playing for England, insists Hodgson

first_img1 Roy Hodgson insists the Premier League’s top stars DO care about playing for England.The Three Lions boss is on course to take the national side to his third major finals next summer, having previously overseen disappointing campaigns at Euro 2012 and last summer’s World Cup in Brazil.That has led to criticism of the players, with a disappointed and disillusioned public believing the star names in the squad are more interested in success with their clubs and the rewards that come with that, than they are in pulling on the white jersey of their country.Hodgson, however, is having none of it.In an exclusive interview with Sport magazine, he insisted: “I would defend the players to the hilt on this. We have had failures, when going out of Euro 2012 on penalties, and in particular at the World Cup. But I would never believe or listen to anyone telling me it is because the players didn’t want it enough.“I think freeing people of the stress and pressure of expectation is a very easy thing to talk about, but very hard to actually then achieve. We have to try and make certain, as we go forward with a very young group of England players, that they are capable of accepting this pressure.“We can’t change it – we can’t ask the media to treat us more kindly or not ask too much from us. We can’t ask the fans not to want or expect or hope that England might win tournaments. That’s a given. It’s always going to be there, so we have to breed players who are mentally strong enough to say: ‘I know this, I understand this, but I trust in myself and my ability, and I believe that my teammates and I are good enough to do it’.“That is what we are constantly talking about and working on. I get so little time with the players on the field, so a lot of my job is on that leadership front, about man-management.”To read the full interview with Roy Hodgson, visit the Sport magazine website England’s players celebrate victory over Slovenia last_img read more
