Courtois explains the pressure at Madrid

first_imgThe Belgian goalkeeper knows that defending the goal of Real Madrid is the most difficult job in the football world.A goalkeeper’s job is very difficult. Not only you are the last line of defense against the rivals, but you are also in constant pressure.This is why Thibaut Courtois feels there’s a lot of pressure when playing for Real Madrid.“Whenever a goalkeeper makes a mistake, it almost always ends up in a goal, so there is always pressure,” he told UEFA.“There’s pressure here at Madrid, but I don’t think that changes whichever club you’re playing for,” he added.“You have to focus at all times.”“When we’re attacking, it is very important to be alert, to play behind the defensive line; if it’s a high defensive line then you need to get further upfield,” he continued.“You need to play in the space and stop those balls getting through; for example against Roma [in the group stage], I had to come out of the area two or three times to stop the counter. That’s when you need to be alert and that’s why you always need to be concentrating.”“Over the last ten years, a lot more has been asked of goalkeepers – to be good with your feet, play in the space – when maybe it was not like this 20 years ago,” he continued.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“Even so, when I played at Genk as a child, they asked you to play with your feet from a very young age.”“It also depends on the team you play for, whether they’re only looking to play long balls or to play out from the back,” he explained.“Being a goalkeeper nowadays is much more than making saves on the line – it’s also about playing into space, playing with your feet, and reducing the distance between yourself and the defense. It’s a little of everything.”“It’s the same for every match: I watch videos of the team’s attacking routines, I watch the penalties, I look at the mistakes, I see how the strikers finish,” he said when preparing for matches.“That doesn’t change, whether it’s the Champions League, the Liga, or a cup tie.”“They have a good team with a mix of experience and young talent and I think they play good football. They will come and play open. They won’t defend; that’s their style, they play football,” the goalkeeper concluded talking about Ajax.Great teamwork pays off. Proud of our team for jumping to second place. A big thanks to all our fans in the world for cheering us on #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/cqTRiS1GC4— Thibaut Courtois (@thibautcourtois) February 10, 2019last_img read more

Smart Money How Artificial Intelligence Will Transform Wealth Management

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » September 10, 2018 Rather than making it obsolete, artificial intelligence appears poised to revitalize the wealth management sector, ensuring that customers can rest easy knowing they are getting the benefit of fresh insights and streamlined processes. Far from taking the human element out of wealth management, it’ll let us personalize services even better, streamlining complex processes and making the business of handling clients’ wealth more effective and profitable for all.Related: Artificial Intelligence Is Likely to Make a Career in Finance, Medicine or Law a Lot Less LucrativeThere’s a reason a tech giant like IBM and its Watson AI are dipping their toes into wealth management — our field has a great deal of improvement at our fingertips, the kind that’ll lead to greater returns for both ourselves and our clients. While the full suite of services wealth managers offer will never be as simple as pushing a few buttons, those of us knee-deep in the complexities of wealth management work are about to get a valuable new tool. Here’s a look at just how AI will be changing the wealth management business in the coming years.Data analysisConsulting giant Deloitte named big data one of the biggest potential disruptors in wealth management, and it’s hard not to agree with that assessment. While we’ve always been able to draw on detailed information about our customers before, the massive amount of info we can now pull from is unprecedented and is sure to change wealth management for good. Thanks to AI’s enhanced data analysis capability, wealth managers will be able to design strategies that take a greater number of factors into account, informed by a deep dive into all the valuable data our software has been able to gather. Soon, catering plans to client’s every specification and pinpointing solutions with incredible accuracy will be a wholesale expectation for the job, not a nice bonus enjoyed only by the biggest firms.Related: 5 Reasons Machine Learning Is the Future of MarketingSupercharged investmentAlgorithms have already transformed the investment sphere, allowing investment firms and wealth managers to make huge numbers of transactions without lifting a finger. If these pre-programmed trades were the baby steps toward a smarter investment strategy, AI represents a full-on Usain Bolt sprint. Artificial intelligence-based investing gives money managers their own ultra-capable (and fast) research assistant, and as the technology evolves they’ll only get smarter. Analyzing past performances, adjusting portfolios on the fly, and presenting new streams of opportunity are just the beginning for AI investing strategies. When you’re in charge of a client’s future, you want to give them the best of your abilities. With AI, you’ll be doing that and more.Accounting precisionTomorrow’s wealth manager will be able to pass off the most tedious and repetitive accounting tasks to AI. The time savings alone are enough to get excited about, but it’s the reliability of artificial intelligence in making these crucial calculations that’s the real game changer. Needle-in-a-haystack accounting errors way well become a thing of the past, something that should come as a major relief to the money management sector. Not every accounting mistake leads to unmitigated disaster, but it’s a great weight off your shoulders to know there’s a technology-based solution to simple carelessness and mistakes. While nobody’s perfect, AI will help us get ever closer to that ideal.Related: Top 10 Best Chatbot Platform Tools to Build Chatbots for Your BusinessThe limits of AIWhile AI certainly represents a big step forward, it’s important to remember what it can’t yet do. Rest assured that smart machines won’t be completely eliminating the human element of wealth management (for now), but providing a powerful supplement to the work we already do. Jumping into AI is a great idea right now, but before putting all our eggs into this one basket it’s crucial to take note of the shortcomings of AI when it comes to the most important aspect of wealth management.When people put their signature on a wealth management agreement, a great deal of trust goes along with it. Anyone with some experience in this sector knows how important the human element is, that people need to buy into you personally just as much as they’re buying into your investment and accounting strategies. While AI is a powerful piece of software, it’s still just that: lines of code in a computer. It won’t be able to build relationships the way a personable manager can, or summarize complicated concepts in a way that only comes from experience. The talented wealth manager of today isn’t in danger of being replaced by AI, only supplemented by it.What this means for wealth managers of the near future is that tech-savvy will no longer be optional. The sooner we get used to this revolution, the faster we’ll be able to save time for ourselves and money for our clients. A complete understanding of what AI tools can and cannot do will be a necessary part of the job description. Essentially, we’ll be getting more time to focus on the big picture: And that means getting the best value for the people who entrust us with their lives’ earnings.AI isn’t a magic box that we can put all our problems into and spit out money, but it’s a tool more powerful than any we’ve seen before. When we can wield this exciting new tech tool intelligently and responsibly, wealth managers of all stripes stand to get a lot more done, for themselves and for their clients. For anyone hoping to succeed in this fast-moving industry, that’s something to celebrate. 5 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
