Vote expected on Richie Boucher remuneration

first_img Pinterest By News Highland – April 24, 2013 A vote on the remuneration package for Bank of Ireland chief Richie Boucher will take place this evening at the bank’s AGM.Mr Boucher was paid more than 840-thousand euro last year, despite the bank suffering losses of more than 2 billion.In the Dail earlier the Taoiseach said he expects bank chiefs to take a significant cut when they respond to government calls on them to reduce their cost base by between 6 and 10 percent.However Finance Minister Michael Noonan is to abstain from voting on Mr. Boucher’s pay package at today’s Annual General Meeting.Our Business Editor Ian Guider is at the AGM and says there is intense anger on the issue among the smaller shareholders.”The small shareholders, they don’t have as much a say as the big pension funds of these big investors – and even the government’s 15 percent stake wouldn’t be enough to block Richie Boucher” he said.”It would also cause a row with the bank – they have supported them through and through the last couple of years, so they’re not going to give them a bloody nose over this”.”It was just a needless row; and you kind of wonder – the shareholders here – are they just being led around the garden path here because the bank already has the votes in, they know exactly how it’s going to go” he added.

10 months agoMan Utd legend Neville: Pogba danced on Mourinho’s grave

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Man Utd legend Neville: Pogba danced on Mourinho’s graveby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Gary Neville says Paul Pogba was “dancing on the grave” of Jose Mourinho yesterday.Pogba posted to his social media channels a photo of himself smirking shortly after the announcement of Mourinho’s departure from Old Trafford.Adidas claimed the promotional post was booked in advance, but Neville isn’t buying their excuse.”Manchester United are a better team with Paul Pogba in it,” Neville told Sky Sports.”That’s the first thing to say – he has huge talent, I actually have belief in him as a player. I actually liked him when he was at the club as a player as a kid, it’s not a personal thing.”Paul Pogba, there is no doubt, has fallen out with the manager. He doesn’t believe in him, he doesn’t like him, he doesn’t think he’s a good coach probably, and vice-versa.”Jose Mourinho doesn’t think Paul Pogba is as good a player as he thinks he is. There’s been a complete breakdown in the last six months between the pair of them, probably [over the last] year.”I do believe that dancing on the grave of the manager who has just been sacked is out of order.”Jose Mourinho lost his job and Paul Pogba and his people put that Instagram post out – don’t fall for this coincidence scheduled tweet nonsense, it’s garbage, absolute garbage.” last_img read more

first_imgChelsea boss Lampard tells Pulisic to fight for placeby Paul Vegas19 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Frank Lampard has told Christian Pulisic to fight for his place.Some in the USA have accused the Chelsea boss of favouritism because he is picking young English players ahead of the big-money signing from Pennsylvania.But Lampard said: “This is one of my difficult problems in this job, that I have good players and everyone has a story.“Christian Pulisic has a price-tag, Ross Barkley is an international player, Mason Mount is an international player.“Callum Hudson-Odoi has just signed a new contract, Bayern Munich wanted to buy him last summer, he is an international player.“Ruben Loftus-Cheek will come back and be an international player — and I can’t pick them all in the game, unfortunately.“All I have to demand of them is that they show me in training or show me in the game when they get the chances to play that they are worthy of their place.“That’s not to make me sound like a hard taskmaster, that’s just a brutal reality of my job. Next week I might be asked about two other names.”Lampard gave the USA international a chance against Grimsby in the Carabao Cup — and the implication is that he did not take it.Boss Lamps said: “I spoke to him two days before the Grimsby game and was very clear about the standards.“And we have to give him the fact he has moved country, moved leagues and is as young as all the young players we keep talking about. He has just turned 21.“What he needs to do is work daily and work to show within the group that he deserves to play.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
