Valencia Make Valdes Bid, Manchester United Reject

Featured Image

Victor Valdes has had to get used to playing behind David De Gea at Manchester United and with the younger Spaniard possibly leaving, Valdes actually has a chance to become the first choice at Manchester United. But Valencia are also interested in the 33 year old.

Valencia reportedly enquired about his availability by from Manchester United who are currently unwilling to let any goalkeeper go but might have to in the summer. Manchester United rejected Valencia request claiming that the former Barcelona shot stopper was not available for sale and is still very much part of Louis Van Gaal’s plans.

Valdes might still be playing as the second choice goalkeeper next season as Manchester United are reportedly searching for a replacement for De Gea, proving they do not really have confidence in the 33 year old Spanish international currently deputizing for De Gea.

Featured Image

In what was a very interesting match, Belgium showed superiority and took a commanding lead in the match through Fellaini and Hazard, France took advantage of some lack of concentration on the part of the Belgians but were unable to salvage a draw as the 1998 world cup winners went down to by 4 goals to 3.

Belgium started with more organization and precision and were rewarded in the 17th minute when Nainggolan’s shot was deflected onto the path of Fellaini. The big Manchester United man made no mistake from point blank range to give Belgium the lead. Three minutes from half time, Fellaini made it two for himself and Belgium as he rose well at the back post to power in Alderwied’s cross. Belgium started the second half still on the front foot but France started to put their act together but 5 minutes after the restart, Naiggolan fired Belgium into a 3-0 lead with a low shot from just outside the penalty area. Valbuena pulled one back for France in the 53rd minute from the penalty spot after Lombarts brought Giroud down in the box. One minute later, it was 4-1 as it was Hazard’s turn to score a penalty after Koscielny brought Witsel down in the box. Belgium slowed the pace of the game down and in the 89th minute Fekir fired in a wonderful volley to make it 4-2, in injury time, Payet curled a wonderful shot into the net to make it 4-3 but it was too little too late for France.

Lewis Hamilton Wins In Canada

Featured Image

Lewis Hamilton showed real class as he cruised to a comfortable victory at the Canadian Grand Prix as he held off Mercedes teammate, Nico Roseberg.

Lewis Hamilton was always ahead from the first lap. Nico Roseberg managed to keep his tires fresh and came after Hamilton towards the end but Hamilton held off his teammate to pick up the win. It was not a great day for Ferrari as they lost one of their drivers but Sebastian Vettel still managed a 5th place finish despite starting outside the grid owing to an engine failure and a 5 place starting penalty due to illegal passing in practice.

Hamilton has now picked up his fourth win in seven races, taking his advantage at the top of the formula one table to 17 points as he looks to defend the championship he won last season.

Stan Wawrinka Shocks Novak Djokovic In Finals Of 2015 French Open

Featured Image

Novak Djokovic‘s hopes of a first French Open were surprisingly thwarted as he lost to Stan Wawrinka in the final of the 2015 French Open.

Wawrinka produced an amazing performance to win the world number 1 4-6 6-4 6-3 6-4.

Djokovic headed into the final on a 28-match winning streak, but Wawrinka produced one of his greatest performances ever to win his second ever Grand Slam title.

Djokovic had been looking to join the highly elite group of Andre Agassi, Don Budge, Roy Emerson, Roger Federer, Rod Laver, Rafael Nadal and Fred Perry: the only men who had won all 4 Grand Slams, but the loss means he’d have to wait another year for a chance to join them.

Fake Nigerian Doctor practises for 10 years with friend’s license

Featured Image

A fake doctor has been nabbed after practising for 10 years.Martins Ugwu,a senior official of the Federal Ministry of Health, who has been practising as a medical doctor for close to 10 years, was arrested by the police upon discovery that he stole the medical license from his friend.

Ugwu, who is a Senior Medical Officer II on Grade Level 13, was found to have impersonated his friend, Dr. George Davidson Daniel, who is undergoing a residency training programme in Jos, Plateau State.

He allegedly stole the license from his friend for whom he was best man during his wedding in 2006. They both hailed from Orukpa in Ogbadibo LGA of Benue State.

 PUNCH learnt that Ugwu, who was due to be promoted as Assistant Director in Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, has been working in the civil service since 2006 under the name of Dr. George Davidson Daniel until he was indicted by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria as an impostor.

Ugwu, who was arrested by the police last Thursday, was however released a few hours later, fueling speculations that the policemen might have been compromised.

Ugwu’s arrest was sequel to an investigation by the MDCN, which registers all Nigerian doctors and regulates their practice, after investigations uncovered two Dr. Daniels—the same name on two separate identity photographs.

But the MDCN said it was dissatisfied with police handling of Ugwu’s case and promised to take up the matter with the Inspector-General of Police.

I Do Not Belong To Anyone – Ariana Grande’s Writes An Amazing Essay On Feminism

Featured Image

Apparently Ariana Grande is fed up with how society treats women and their relationships, hence her embrace of feminism.

“I’m tired of needing to be linked to a guy, I’m not Big Sean’s ex, I’m not Niall’s new possible girl. I’m Ariana Grande.” she said in an interview while responding to rumours that she’s now a couple with One Direction’s Niall Horan and being described as Kanye West prodigy’s ex.

Grande didn’t stop there, she went further by using her vast social media presence to define a 2015 woman and discuss her personal life.

Being ‘empowered’… is not the same as being a ‘bitch’…”

 “HAVING SOMETHING TO SAY… is not the same as HAVING A BAD ATTITUDE. What I meant when I said what I said about not being Sean’s ex is that I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man’s past, present, or future PROPERTY / POSSESSION. I… do not. belong. to anyone. but myself. and neither do you.” Grande writes.

Massimiliano Allegri hopes that his side Juventus can build on their successful champions league run, establish themselves as a top team in europe despite losing 3-1 to Barcelona.

The Turin club put up a brave fight against Barca, but have to settle for the Scudetto and Coppa Italia this term, with Allegri looking forward to more.

He told Sky Italia: “We were naive on the Barca goals but we fought until the end. It was a fantastic season and I cannot say anything negative about my team.

“We risked a lot and had several chances. But when you play against great players, you sometimes think you’re in control and when you think you have it, the opponents score.

“Maybe we can do some things better but we played the game until the end. Now we want to establish ourselves among the best eight European teams.

“The first objective is, as always, to win Serie A and the Coppa Italia. The Champions League remains a dream.”

FUNKE AKINDELE MIGHT NOT HAVE A CHILD IN LIFE – POPULAR PROPHET

Funke-Akindele-600x600

There has been a sounding warning to popular Nollywood actress Funke Akindele from the founder of Mountain of Blessing and Miracle Church of Christ, Prophet Dr. Olagorioye Faleyimu.

The popular Lagos based pastor, clearly cautioned that the divorced actress should pray against bareness in her life.

His words, “Funke Akindele needs to pray hard so as to have a child before she go back to her creator. She will be reeling in blessing and all good things off life. If care is not taken, she won’t have a child before she dies. The entertainment industry in Nigeria should pray that six super stars shall not die this year. They should also be prayerful and rely on God because in finding what they didn’t lose, they may meet their waterloos. The blessing from the devil will keep coming to them but they are going to come with unexpected calamities,” he predicted.

Recall that two years ago, the popular prophet predicted a lot of events which has come to pass including the presidential election which made Muhammed Buhari, Nigerian president.

Blogger’s Diary -My Encounter With The Cunning Rich Woman

Featured Image

It was a really sunny day.I dashed to the bank at the very busy Allen Avenue,Lagos .On getting inside the banking hall with my sister, I was relieved to see a sparse number of customers and proceeded to  fill transfer forms..

I had been in there for 5 minutes when the security guard came to me,requesting my attention was needed outside.Presuming I needed to move my car for someone to drive out, I quickly dashed out.

I saw a well decked woman standing by a red 2015 Range Sport packed behind my car,there were a few other people with her..I was about to unlock my door when she suddenly said in a British/American accent

Hello pretty girl, is this your car?

Yes Maa’am” I said,as i made to get in..

Is that a wig ?She continued 

Oh, it’s actually fixed ..She inquired about the name to which I replied “bohemian hair”

She futher asked about the address of my stylist,saying she needed to fix the same style..Though uncomfortable, I was flattered..Nothing beats getting compliments over your hair..
For a brief second, I saw the people around her looking slightly nervous ,including the security guy who called me ..

So I asked him who needed to move out as the person infront of me was nowhere in sight..

Ermm..Ermm madam, your car..He stuttered..The woman who had complimented me suddenly cut in

Ermm darling,please,I actually called you out because your car has a slight dent..Was trying to park when..It’s just minor..

My blushing smiles instantly replaced with a blazing red cheeks..I dashed to the bumper and saw the damage..It wasn’t slight..It was a huge dent..Like someone rammed the car into mine..Looking at her fender,it had a protector,so her car was not affected ..

Nodding my head in disbelief ,I thought….Well,she has a range sport,dripping in gold jewelry,must be a respectable woman..I believe she is saying sorry first and then would do the right thing by offering to fix it..She should have insurance right Right?

The next thing she said was

So sorry darling,

Then I said..

Madam,so sorry but this car is already about to be sold.How do you expect me to sell it with this huge dent.This means I have to fix it..This is bad ohh.Really bad..

She sighed and continued to beg saying it was a mistake ..

Madam, If I bashed your car now,when you had it parked here, not even in motion, what would you do? Would you accept my sorry?You see,this isn’t a scratch,or a minor dent…So Madam, kindly do the right thing,have it fixed,call your insurance or something..I can’t inconvenience myself because of your recklessness..

She hesitated for a second ..Her phone rang
She picks up..(In a harsh Nigerian accent) Yes? Why are you calling me? I’m at the bank now,no alert.I will wait here for 5 more minutes and if you haven’t paid, will have you arrested.What rubbish..
She ended the call and hissed..

Back to her British accent

 Darling the right thing is for you to accept my apology.You see,the sun is scorching hot..My skinis suffering now.And I don’t joke with my skin..

Gosh,I was infuriated by her last statement..The boldness and pride..I was even more angry she had to go through all the I love your hair route initially..
I had made up my mind, there was no way she wouldn’t fix that car .. The sun was scorching hot.. I was getting dehydrated and angry..I decided to go into the banking hall and tell my sister to come out and see what had happened ..she had to fix it(and this had nothing to do with her being richer) the damage was massive, I was a little girl in comparison to her..That’s what I would have done in her situation..

As I was just emerging from the bank with my sister ,just to tell her
As we got to he scene, I just heard her bark..

Won’t you beg her? Beg her or you lose your job.What nonsense old man,making my stay in Nigeria miserable…..she turned around and entered her car(driver’s seat)

 I was in shock..Partly from the way she scolded the old man, an the fact she walked away .No begging would make me change my mind..She must pay for the damage..I resolved..

Some bystanders also suggested they call a mechanic nearby to access the damage and give a cost..

Suddenly,this old man ,about 60 -65 fell on his knees ,held my fet and started begging

Madam,sorry..Abeg forgive me .I beg ..I no wan lose my job.I get 10 children ejor (please)madam

What? Kneel down? Me Madam?

Nooo Baba abeg stand up..I take God beg you.Over wetin? Why you go kneel down..I turned away while insisting he stand up..

The baba didn’t stand..

Abeg dem go sack me abeg madam.I no see the motor ..

Baba,e don do(It’s alright) stand up…No worry,just go..I said.

That was he magic word..The way this baba just flew up like he wasn’t the one on the floor..

Thank you my pickin he said as he rushed towards the Range Sport..

He opened the passenger door and hopped in..Putting on his seat belt,the lady drove off without a word,while I inspected the damage, cursing myself for being so feeble..

“Kai, that baba na good actor”The security guard said..Stingy woman,another bystander added

Actor?Why do you say that ? I said nonchalantly to the security guard..

Because no be him (jam)bash the car,na the woman jam(bash) am…As you enter bank,she tell that baba make hin beg you.

Oh nooo..What? She played me..I turned around with vengeance and saw their car still in traffic,Bringing out the Usain Bolt in me,I decided to bolt after her..Running in traffic, jumping above cars, I kept screaming for her to stop …I got to her car and fiercely bangedon the drivers side “Stop”I ordered…

I could see her gesticulating at the driver to zoom off..Stop ,i kept screaming, the traffic light was going green at any moment..I needed to tell her apiece of my angry mind..Suddenly,I heard car honks..as I turned around to look,in a split second,the driver zoomed off, leaving me dazed an confused by the side of the road..

I didn’t even have time to take down the plate number..
Emeh,Emeh..Just let it go..
Someone shook me..Turning around sharply i yelled
What? It was my sister looking at me with so much concern.

Since that woman drove off, you have been staring at the road…At that moment, I regained my senses.I had been day dreaming I chased after her..Her car was still in traffic..Maybe I should act on my day dream..As I made to go after her and tell her apiece of my mind, the traffic light turned green and I watched her zoom off..

With my day ruined,I didn’t even go back into the bank,I told my sister to get in,and zoomed off..It’s small world,someday,some how..someone would play a fast one on her,just like she did to me…

Emeh Achanga
