Pepe Reina secured the points with an injury-time penalty save.Giampaolo said, “I am quite cool-headed during a game, fortunately. I had doubts it was a penalty, but Reina has so much character that I had faith he would save it.“It was a difficult match, we went underwater and were under a lot of pressure, so I praise the lads for not letting go. I didn’t even care if they misplaced a pass or a goal, the important thing was to give a response in terms of character.“I want us to continue with this character, but obviously hope to get a sharper and higher quality style of football in future.“I want to see this team play better football, but it wasn’t possible today because they felt the pressure so much and needed the victory so badly. We had to scrape the last bit of determination and character. I couldn’t ask them for beautiful football today, as we had other objectives.”
NEW YORK — The co-founder of Flipkart, the massive online retail operation in India acquired by Walmart this year, has stepped down as CEO following an allegation of serious personal misconduct.Walmart, which purchased a $16 billion controlling stake in Flipkart Group in May, the largest single investment in its history, said Tuesday that an independent investigation done on behalf of both companies did not find evidence corroborating the allegation against Binny Bansal, but it did reveal lapses in judgment on his part.Walmart cited “a lack of transparency, related to how Binny responded to the situation.”Kalyan Krishnamurthy, who took over as CEO of Flipkart in 2017, will continue in that role.Binny Bansal and Sachin Bansal —who are not related — founded Flipkart, India’s largest online retailer, in 2007.Walmart believes India, which has more than 1 billion people, could be among the world’s top five e-commerce markets within the next five years. Flipkart appeals to its customers for numerous reasons, including its various payment options. The company focused early on mobile phones, and in 2016 became the first app in India to reach 50 million users.Bangalore-based Flipkart has acquired a string of other companies in recent years, from fashion e-commerce company Myntra to mobile payment firm PhonePe. Its supply chain arm, eKart, serves hundreds of cities and makes at least 500,000 deliveries daily.Retailers based outside of India, including Walmart, have faced years of political resistance to opening outlets in the country, where mom-and-pop store owners wield enormous influence. Prior to Flipkart, Walmart’s business in India was focused only on selling items directly to small businesses though its Best Price stores.The Flipkart acquisition gives Walmart far more influence in India — both politically and economically.The Associated Press
