Germans trust China more than the US, survey finds | DW

Germans have an increasingly negative view of the relationship between their country and the US, a survey released on Friday indicated, with many seeing China as a more reliable partner.
Just over 42 percent of Germans who took part in the study said they saw China as a more reliable partner than the US, compared with 23.1 percent who favored the US over China... A clear majority (57.6 percent) said they were in favor of putting more distance between the two trans-Atlantic allies. Only 13.1 percent said they would prefer to see the nations work more closely at present.

Descente opposes top shareholder Itochu's bid to acquire larger stake - Japan Today

Major Japanese sportswear maker Descente Ltd said Thursday it opposes what it calls an "oppressive" bid by its top shareholder Itochu Corp to acquire a larger stake, drawing the two firms into a rare hostile takeover battle... Major trading house Itochu, which has had a business relationship with Descente for over 50 years, made a tender offer on Jan. 31 that would raise its equity stake in the company from the current 30 percent to as much as 40 percent, citing the need to "reform the management structure" at Descente... Eight Descente board members, excluding two from Itochu, and three auditors decided to oppose the bid offer at an extraordinary board meeting on Thursday. Itochu's bid "hurts our company's value and infringes our shareholders' common interest," the company said in a statement.

Maurizio Sarri: What next for Chelsea boss after Man City thrashing - BBC Sport

Sarri had that familiar haunted look, one worn by sacked predecessors such as Luiz Felipe Scolari and Andre Villas-Boas, as he sifted through the carnage of a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City - Chelsea's heaviest defeat since the 7-0 loss at Nottingham Forest in April 1991.
He admitted that "my job is always at risk" while insisting he did not know whether he was in immediate danger... Sarri's team have conceded 10 goals without reply in their past two away league games, having lost 4-0 at Bournemouth on 30 January. Chelsea, once a by-word for defensive solidity, conceded all four in the second half against Eddie Howe's side and four in the first 25 minutes at City.
They have now dropped to sixth in the Premier League, a point adrift of Manchester United in fourth place, having enjoyed an 11-point advantage when Jose Mourinho left Old Trafford in December.
