Liverpool face a monumental task to overturn a 3-0 first leg deficit against Barca if they are to reach the Champions League final for the second consecutive season.Salah was caught by Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka as they challenged for an aerial ball 20 minutes from time at St. James’ Park.“We’ll have to see. He took a blow to the head. He watched the game in the locker room, he was OK, but we have to do more tests,” Klopp told Sky Sports.Firmino was not involved on Saturday and Klopp confirmed he will miss Barca’s visit.“He will not be ready for Tuesday and the rest we will see,” said the German on the possibility Firmino could be fit for Liverpool’s final league game of the season against Wolves on May 12.Salah had earlier scored his 26th goal of the season to put Liverpool 2-1 in front, before Salomon Rondon levelled early in the second-half to make it 2-2.Divock Origi then headed Liverpool’s late winner as the Reds went back to the top of the Premier League.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah was forced off 20 minutes from time against Newcastle with a head injury © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYNEWCASTLE, United Kingdom, May 5 – Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah was stretchered off with a head knock during the 3-2 win at Newcastle on Saturday leaving manager Jurgen Klopp sweating on the Egyptian’s fitness ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Barcelona.And Klopp will definitely be without another of his prolific attacking trident with Roberto Firmino ruled out due to a groin injury.
When planning began for Cap Juluca’s now completed first-phase $22 million enhancement program, one name stood above all others for interior design – world renowned American designer, Paul Duesing. His designs grace the most sumptuous homes and the resorts of some of the premier names in worldwide hospitality. Just a few of his noted hotel projects include the Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat on the Mediterranean Riviera… the Four Seasons Santa Barbara in California… as well as One & Only’s Palmilla and Rosewood’s Las Ventanas both in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to name but a few.In one of the more unusual stories surrounding Cap Juluca’s handsome redesign, Cap Juluca’s new owner and noted travel industry executive Adam Aron teamed up with Duesing, both traveling personally to Marrakech, Morocco. There, they scoured the streets and back alleys of the Marrakech souks for days on end to select the perfect signature pieces and accompanying accents. The goal from the outset was to enhance yet be faithful to the original Greco-Moroccan tones of Cap Juluca in its Caribbean setting.Paul Duesing Perhaps the most stunning result of all is Cap Juluca’s Main House, which almost magically has been transformed into a new romantic gathering place for the resort. Its new high style is highlighted by centuries-old artifacts, rich woods and soothing limestone flooring imported from Spain and France. The literal and figurative centerpiece of The Main House is a 900-pound, 16′ x 25′ chandelier — constructed of punched tin dipped in brass and consisting of 94 decorative lit metal balls strategically placed to refract light and simulate the twinkling of an Anguillian starry night.Of course, Duesing’s work far transcended what was brought home from Morocco. A wholly new Duesing décor can be found in Cap Juluca’s three restaurants, Pimms, Spice and Blue (making the creations of the new acclaimed and much honored Executive Chef of Cap Juluca René Bajeux all the more palatable). The best electronics from Sony and Bose were added to all guestrooms. And new guestroom patio furniture and custom-made beach furniture, from the likes of Janus et Cie and Dedon among others, adorn the beauty of Maundays Bay Beach.And all this doesn’t even take into account Cap Juluca’s new fleet of golden solar powered self-drive golf carts for guest use, the sixty thousand new flowers that were planted to give Cap Juluca full bouquets of bountiful color or the new ecologically sensitive and wildlife friendly night lighting that was installed to cast a romantic glow around the property throughout every evening.Commenting on the refreshing of Cap Juluca, Paul Duesing said, “We believe that design work should be authentic and that the design process should be fun. Our trip to North Africa certainly achieved both. Rummaging through back-street shops of Marrakech, we found some amazing pieces. The custom chandelier that we created for the Main House outdoor living room was inspired on the spot, when we found a warehouse full of intricate metal balls of varying shapes and sizes. It seems to me that guests come to Cap Juluca to unwind and to recharge. As a former Cap Juluca guest myself, I knew the beach to be beautiful, the food delicious, and the staff gracious. Putting it all together, the overall atmosphere at Cap Juluca is one of casual, chic comfort. Our approach was to stay true to these goals, while introducing an occasional ‘surprise’ of an unexpected or unique element to help create special memories.”To see some of those elements of Paul Duesing’s design, we invite you to visit our online photo gallery.
