Saldana had faced a lot of backlash on social media for playing Simone in her biopic, with many saying there were plenty naturally black actresses deserving of the role.

“It’s unfortunate that Zoe Saldana is being attacked so viciously when she is someone who is part of a larger picture,” Lisa said in an interview with TIME magazine. “It’s clear she brought her best to this project, but unfortunately she’s being attacked when she’s not responsible for any of the writing or the lies.”

Lisa however slammed the movie’s plot of Simone’s relationship with manager Clifton Henderson, a romance she says never happened.

“The movie is about a relationship between my mother and Clifton that never took place. They never had an amorous relationship,” Lisa said. “The project has been tainted from the very beginning. Clearly, it is not the truth about my mother’s life and everyone now knows that. This is not how you want your loved ones remembered.”

Hiddink Puts Diego Costa On A Leash

Featured Image

Guus Hiddink has suggested he might limit Diego Costa’s playing time, saying he might have to put him on a leash.

Costa has been pivotal to Chelsea’s revival, scoring 10 goals and having six assists in his last 14 appearances.

Hiddink suggested he might rest the Spain international against Stoke, but has confirmed he’ll start.

“He [Costa] won’t have a full game. We monitor them with the data. He is in perfect physical shape, but we must not give him an overload in games, but he is difficult to stop,” Hiddink said.

“He wants to play every game – but I must be careful with that. Tomorrow [Saturday] he will start.

“There is always a danger of going over. If i share those figures with him, he can be rational too. Sometimes I have to put him on the leash.

“Big clubs know you must have a regular season, then in March and April everyone is queuing up, the rewards are there. You have to be there on top as a team and as a player.”

Tuchel: The Loss To Bayern Helped Dortmund

Featured Image

Dortmund manager, Thomas Tuchel is certain the 5-1 thrashing his men suffered at the hands of Bayern, made them better and shaped their season.

Bayern surged to a seven point after the win, but Dortmund has been exceptional since the defeat, closing the gap to just five points after Mainz beat Bayern.

And Tuchel is crediting the loss to Bayern at the beginning of the season for their renewed vigour.

“The reverse fixture showed that you can lose by a high margin because of small errors. But you can learn from that,” said BVB boss Tuchel.

“The 5-1 loss in Munich has made us into what we are now. And we are very happy with that.

“You could see our improvements in the games against Mainz and Augsburg following that loss in Munich.”

Dortmund, who are in the mix for Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Europa League success this term, pounced on Bayern’s defeat to Mainz by downing Darmstadt 2-0 on the same night.

Arms Deal: Dasuki Loses Fresh Bid To Stop Trial

Featured Image

The immediate past National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) has lost a fresh bid to stop his prosecution as another judge of Federal Capital Territory High Court in Maitama, Abuja, Justice Peter Affen, on Friday ruled that his application to stop his trial lacked merit.

READ ALSO: #ArmsGate: Dasuki May Never Get Bail – Buhari

The Judge dismissed the application by Dasuki seeking to stop his trial for alleged diversion of arms funds on the grounds that his re-arrest on December 29, 2015 violated the order of the court granting him bail.

Justice Affen held that Dasuki was unable to prove that he was being held by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after an order granting him bail as the EFCC had not disobeyed the order of court because it did not have the accused person in custody.

“The Federal Government and the EFCC did not disobey the order he had earlier granted,’’ the court held. “Since it was clear that the ex-NSA was not re-arrested by the EFCC but by the Department of State Service, the EFCC could not be said to have violated the said order granting him bail.

The Judge fixed April 20 and 22, April for trial.

Dasuki was arraigned by the anti-graft for allegedly mismanaging $2.1 billion meant for the purchase of arms for the Nigerian Army fighting insurgents in the North-East.

He, however, had pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Justice Baba Yusuf of the same court had also on February 8 made similar declaration that the detention of the former NSA was not in breach of his order granting bail to him on December 18, 2015.

Justice Yusuf had fixed March 23 for commencement of trial.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has blamed some privileged Nigerians for the spiraling fall of the Naira as it has uncovered about $20 billion which is being kept idle in some domiciliary accounts in the country.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Apex Bank’s deputy governor, financial system surveillance, Joseph Nnana on Thursday.

Speaking at the meeting of the joint appropriation committees of the national assembly, Nanna assured Nigerians that these speculators would surely get their fingers burnt, adding that the Naira would also pick up after the passage of the 2016 budget.

The statement read: “Distinguished chairman sir, we have $20bn lying idle in various domiciliary accounts of many customers at the various banks across the country.”

“This is part of the reasons why the naira has continued to slide against the US dollar. The CBN will embark on aggressive liquidity mop-up to enable the naira regain confidence.

“The CBN will not sit down and watch the consistent fall of the naira. After the passage of the 2016 budget, the naira will begin to bounce back. Those who speculate on dollars will have their fingers burnt.”

President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier rejected the idea of devaluing the country’s currency.

Consequently, a devaluation of the Naira would mean a big pay day for the speculators keeping billions of dollars in their domiciliary accounts.

Horrific details have emerged on a taped telephone conversation between a Fulani herdsman and the former aide to the immediate past Governor of Benue State Gabriel Suswam, Zakari Musa on the recent attack on the Riverine Abugbe community of Agatu.

Fulani Herdsman

Fulani Herdsman

The audio tape, according to a local media house in Benue, divulged an alleged complicit conversation between the cattle breeder and the Idoma man.

Though the validity of the tape has not yet been ascertained, however, if the content of the tape is anything to by, it means the recent crisis in Agatu is just getting started.


Read transcript of the conversation below:

Voice 1 (Herdsman): Inaudible
Voice 2 (Musa): its important that you people should inform them pls
1: What you people have been telling them is not exactly what they have been doing. Because it seems you people are the ones who have been sending them to kill our cattle or is it not you people?
2: No, no. No no. What is our business with Abugbe people?
1: You, you are from which tribe (ethnicity)?
2: Me?
1: Yes
2: Don’t you know Musa at panama kokoro?
1: I know you of course
2: Then why are you asking of my ethnicity again?
1: Ok, Ok
2: Is it not Audu Janga that is speaking?
1: Its Audu Janga of course.
2: Ehen
1: I did not realise at first. So its you?
2: Its me.
1: Ok. Its your people that did not seek peace. They keep killing our cattle. So, our children… (interrupted)
2: Which people?
1: Abugbe people
2: We have no business with those people, they do not want peace. I am talking about kokoro, not Abugbe
1: Ok, Ok, Alright, Kokolo will not be touched
2: You know it is the hand that enters a hole that gets stung by a bee right?
1: Of course
2: So they are the ones who attracted the problem to themselves. That is why I said no soldier should enter into any water (water body). I mean, the navy should not enter into the water. I have talked to them several times to leave the Fulani train alone. But they refuse and go on to kill the Fulani cattle at Gungundi. So, let the soldiers leave. Please am begging you, do not go to kokoro
1: Listen to me, Kokoro will not be touched. But the people of Abugbe, ant the people of igwa… (interrupted)
2: For those ones there is no problem
1: Are you listening to me? And those ones of Kwasheni? They are the ones killing our cattle. And we know about it.
2: We know about it, We keep talking to them but they refuse to listen to us. I have withdrawn the soldiers. No soldier will go to talk to them
1: Did you hear of the incident at Abugbe the day before yesterday? Or did you not hear?
2: Yes we heard. They called for help from soldiers but I refused to allow deployment of soldiers.
1: Did you hear that our boys touched Kokolo?
2: They did not, that is why I am begging you because people are calling me from kokoro that I should please talk to you. You know I am not in kokoro
1: But if you don’t warn them, the people of Kokolo, Abugbe, Egba(Igwa), Gwajeni and Asheni, we have vowed to finish them all.
2: They are the ones who keep troubling you so it is their problem. I have talked to them several times, they refuse to listen. I will call their traditional rulers and lock them up and see if that helps. They are the ones instigating the problems
1: Of course they are the ones. They have killed over 300 of our cattle in this month alone.
2: That is not fair at all
1: And we, how many people did we kill?
2: That is not fair at all
1: At Abugbe the day before yesterday how many persons did you hear that our boys killed?
2: It is not fair at all
1: Is that peaceful coexistence?
2: It is not fair at all.
1: Listen to me…. (Interrupted)
2: The Governor is calling my other line, let me answer the governor ,,,,( interrupted)
1: No, wait and listen let me conclude my talk
2: Ok.
1: To tell you the truth, I am not Abdu Janga.
2: Who is this?
1: Honestly it is just one boy. We are the ones that went and burnt Abugbe. Abdu Janga is not even aware.
2: Ok
1: Honestly I am not Abdu Janga. Abdu Janga is not even aware. Personally, I do not even know Abdu Janga. We went to take revenge because they killed our cattle. Our cattle that were killed were not as many as the figure I gave to you but it is close to that figure
2: Frankly, I and doing my best within the law to talk to them and am always scolding them
1: But they do not listen to your scolding. They do not want peaceful living ….(interrupted)
2: I have told you those people do not listen. Those people by the water side do not listen
1: So they want to destabilise the land for all? Honestly, I am a boy of only 15 years of age, the person you are speaking with. And am telling you that day we went to Abugbe, we drowned a lot of them in water. They died. This phone I am using to call you belongs to one of the persons who died on that day. I took the phone, I saw your number in it and decided to call you.
2: Please am going to call you again later. Kindly be patient.
1: Ok. ok, ok, But because of Allah, …( interrupted by voices in the background urging him to wait, lets hear him out)
2: Those traditional rulers, the things we have been telling them, some things are already happening to them. Kokolo has no hand in the matter at all at al. In the year to come cattle go all the way to Kokolo and nothing happens to them
1: Are you listening to me? We are the ones carrying out these activities. Me that you are speaking with, we are the ones carrying out these activities. But tell your people, those ones you don’t want their properties burnt, they should steer clear of this problem. We do not touch anybody unless he touches us first. But if they touch us, even if you are going to send soldier, it only means the soldiers will have to kill us. Because our government is our cattle.
2: They dare not get involved in what does not concern them
1: Yes. We will not enter your town if they do not touch us. Our government is our cattle. It pays our wages. If you kill our cattle, then we have no wages. So, how will we stand by and watch our cattle be wiped out. Its either we wipe out agatu or they stop killing our cattle.
2: No problem. No problem
1: Ok, you what is your name?
2: Zakari, Zakari, Zakari, Zakari Musa
1: Zakari Musa right? Ok, please you people should redouble efforts to stop this crisis. We too are tired of it. You know it is not right to kill human beings, but we have become used to it.
2: Me, I am the adviser to the governor on the deployment of soldiers. Such duties are my responsibility. I am the one that stopped deployment of soldiers to abugbe the day before yesterday, because I am not pleased with that they did.
1: Right now, are you listening? If they want peace, we too we want peace, but if they do not want peace, we here are young men (small children) we are the ones killing them. We are now used to killing human beings. If you do not stop this crisis we will not be tired of killing people up the land of bagaje will wake up. If this crisis does not end we will enter bagaje this time around.

Meanwhile, details have emerged today, Friday on why Fulani herdsmen invaded Agatu local government area of Benue state.

During a stakeholders meeting organised by the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Solomon Arase in Markudi, the Fulani leaders in both Benue and Nasarawa state claimed that over 10,000 cattle were allegedly killed by people of Agatu.

The Sleazy Club Scene And Availability Of ‘Underage Girls’ For Footballers

Featured Image

According to experts of the club scene, footballers are given the freedom to abuse potential wives and girlfriends (wags). One fixer was recently caught smuggling underage girls into a club.

A club promoter has stated, millionaires, most with wives and girlfriends , feel buying drinks for a girl justifies the abuse.

Former England and Sunderland midfielder, Adam Johnson, who faces up to 10 years in jail, has been seen regularly at clubs, surrounded with champagne and spirits and up to 20 women at a go.

One former worker at celebrity haunt The Circle Club in Manchester recalls how locally Johnson, when playing for Manchester City and England. liked to play ‘the big man’.

‘He had about ten girls around him aged about 19 or 20,’ he recalled of a visit to the club. ‘He told a doorman that he wanted a people carrier to take them all to a nearby hotel where he was staying.

He then joked: ‘I’ll need about 30 condoms to s**g all this lot’.

Promoters who are desperate for a footballer’s money, will go to any length to keep their potential client happy.

Dan Caren, assistant general manager of Libertine nightclub in Mayfair, formerly known as China Whites told The Times’ Katie Gibbons: ‘Some guys want younger girls, not really young, but underage’.

‘We got wind of what was going on and he’s pretty much been barred from working in Mayfair’.

He admitted some clubs do allow footballers to use their private rooms for sex, but Libertine does not allow it’.

Adam Johnson will not be the first footballer and I’m guessing, not the last to be charged with underage sex.

“I didn’t quite manage what I hoped I would through the trilogy,” said Bale in an interview with Yahoo Movies. “Chris did, but my own sense of self is like, ‘I didn’t quite nail it.”

“Batman, he’s this very, very dark, messed-up character,” the actor added. “I found when I put on the suit I went, ‘I just feel like a bloody idiot if I don’t use this as a means to (show) his true, monstrous self that he allows to come out in that moment.’”

Ese Oruru, The Girl-Child And A Nation’s Shame – Reuben Abati

Featured Image

Three different incidents in the last week cast, poignantly, in bold relief the plight of the girl-child in Nigeria. Thanks to The Punch newspaper which launched the #FreeEse, #JusticeforEse campaign and the civil society groups that took up the fight in a spirited manner.

READ: Ese Oruru, Emir Of Kano And Those Distorting The Narrative – Fani-Kayode

With the outrage and outcry that followed, within 72 hours, this same 14-year old girl who was abducted from Yenagoa, Bayelsa state and taken to Kano, seven months ago, by one Yinusa Dahiru alias Yellow, is now free. While we were still grappling with this bizarre story, on Monday, a group of criminals stormed a school, Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary in Ikorodu, Lagos state and abducted three girls.

And if that was not shocking enough, on Wednesday, there was this other report about a 15-year old Benue girl, Patience Paul, who had been abducted by two neighbours and married off to a certain “Sarkin Musulmi” in Sokoto state. Her brother cried out, obviously motivated to do so by the Ese Oruru story.

Set against the background of the abduction of 219 Chibok girls in 2014, a story that is well known internationally, Nigeria must by now appear in the eyes of the world as a large den of sexual predators, who seem to be obsessed with young, under-aged girls, and the adolescent female.

The international community would be correct to conclude that something terrible is happening here. Indeed, can we blame any analyst who may soon conclude that a girl child is abducted, assaulted or violated per minute in Nigeria, and that Nigeria is not a safe place for either a girl child or a female?

The sanity and moral temperature of a society should be measured by the manner in which that society treats its underprivileged and vulnerable members. The powerful trample upon the weak, the privileged despise the less fortunate; a long journey to Hobbes’ apotheosis, which is in truth a comment on the state of our development as state, country, people, and society.

It is instructive, for example, that the girls that end up being abused in the manner of the aforementioned are usually from poor backgrounds and perhaps this makes them specially vulnerable. But all the adult males who abduct other people’s daughters, marry them by force, put them in family way and convert them to Islam, not only make the entire country look bad, they give the rest of us a very bad name indeed.

In the end, Nigeria is the victim, and this is why the various government agencies, which were in a position to make a difference when it mattered most in the Ese Oruru case, or similar cases, and failed to act, did the entire country a disservice. In some other countries, certain persons would have honourably submitted their resignations.

But you can be sure, it won’t happen here. The standard response in quarters that should be responsible is likely to be: “ah, wetin? So? “I beg”; Nigeria go stop because of one girl wey follow man?. And life will go on and go on, and the tragedy foretold gets moved to the future. Which is why the protesting small community of men and women with conscience, who have helped to rescue this one girl from sex slavery and forced conversion to a religion that is not of her choice deserve special praise.

The Ese Oruru case is a metaphor for the plight of the Nigerian girl-child. She is a living symbol of the assault on the integrity of the girl child and her hopes and aspirations in a deracinated, dispossessed and conflicted society. She was taken away from her parents at 13 by a man who of course was well-known to her family as a tricycle rider.

Initial reports identified the abductor and tormentor as Yinusa Dahiru or Yellow, but from that moment, the story further got coloured by the usual politics of identity, ethnicity and religion. Yellow was branded “Kano man”. There were also references to a North-South cultural divide: a Northerner stealing a Southern child! And then of course, Ese’s conversion to the Islamic religion was a source of boiling anger – most abducted girls tend to be Christians.

There is also the role of the Emir of Kano in the matter. Too many loud and silent indications: conflict between traditional and modern institutions, with particular accent on the relevance, influence, and undue superiorization of the traditional institution in the North, ethnic and regional dichotomy, power dynamics, distortions and historical fault lines and the power of the media, old and new, to change trajectories. No one should fail to notice in this entire saga, how Nigeria and its many ugly complexities are again, sorrowfully on display.

But the more urgent and painful part is that the life of a young girl has again been scarred forever. Ese could well have been one of the Chibok girls! Everyday, we are back to Chibok either as symbol, metaphor, painful reminder or elemental fact.

Mr Yellow not only abducted her and turned her into a Muslim, all without her parents’, consent, he also allegedly put the girl in a family way. She is said to be five months pregnant. How sad and annoying.

Perhaps if there had been a strong follow up mechanism in place at the Kano Emirate Council, the Emir’s order that she should be released would have saved her the ordeal of being turned into a sex slave.

Perhaps if the police in the Kano zone had done their job, seeing that this was nothing but a crime in the eyes of the law, and they had remembered that the primary job of the police is to protect lives and property. But sorry, they just all forgot!

There must be sanctions and civil society must not get tired of this case. There are many other Eses out there, whose future hangs in the balance because certain persons remain morally trapped in the Stone Age. The atrocities that have been committed against innocent children in this land, are despicable: in Ese’s case, her right to education was truncated, she had to miss her JSS 3 exam because a man was busy changing the course of her life; she was subjected to undue imprisonment, and now she is a child bearing a child.

It is shocking to say the least that some persons, carried away by religious and ethnic prejudices, chose to justify this madness. Now that the truth is known that she is indeed a minor, and that Yellow is an adult who took advantage of her, I hope such persons will be reasonable enough to apologise, hide their heads in shame and return filthy lucre. The point has been made ad nauseam that Yinusa Yellow must not be allowed to get away with his brazen crime.

The Zimbabwean sit-tight ruler has recommended castration as punishment in this kind of context, but castration not being part of our extant criminal law, we take solace in the realization that there is more than enough in the statutes to put Yinusa Yellow away for a long time, to serve as a deterrent to his ilk. He should be tried expeditiously and a proper closure put to this particular case in line with natural justice, equity and good conscience. His accomplices if there are any, no matter who they are, should also be identified and made to face the full wrath of the law.

This is clearly a case of man’s cruelty to man. In an interview with The Sun, her innocence and vulnerability shine through, as compellingly as the madness of her tormentors. She knows Yinusa as one of her mother’s customers who comes around to buy food at their shop, and she being with her mother at the shop knows and relates with everybody, without any special relationship with Yinusa. “He is not my boyfriend”, she tells us. “I just followed him. I don’t know how I followed him.” She says she doesn’t even know how she found herself in Kano.

She was obviously hypnotized or bewitched. Her kidnappers made her to recite lines she did not understand. They even gave her some strange water to drink. They changed her name to Aisha. She comes across as a child whose childhood and spirit have been polluted by wicked souls. When Ese saw her mother at the Emir’s palace during an earlier attempt to rescue her, she had been so polluted she could not even recognize her mother: “I just looked at her. I did not know her and I did not talk to her.”
She has now regained her senses enough to now ask her mother for “Banga soup and starch”, but there are many lessons involved. She offers advice, for example, to young girls like her: “They should be careful with the people they play with or talk with because it’s not everybody that is good.”

Indeed, we live in a society where “not everybody is good” and that includes those callous ones who turned this episode upside down and spilled much ink trying to protect a fictitious Northern interest. At stake is the human interest, and it is not geographical.

Child labour such as the type Ese was involved in, assisting her mother in her food vending business is, let’s admit, culturally correct in Africa, but it also comes with grave dangers. The children are exposed to risks and accidents: crazy customers who can’t keep their eyes or fingers off the female child labourer and kidnappers like Yellow who go the extra length. Parents must be careful. They must be vigilant.

The need to survive and deploy all possible hands in the house may be given as an excuse, but the truth is that children lack such negotiating skills that could protect them in an adult context. Caution is the word.

The argument that obsession with children as brides is cultural and religious is the most unreasonable thing I have ever heard and to think that some of the most enlightened and privileged men in a part of our country are part of this, beggars belief. The girl child is a child, not a bride, not a sex slave: she deserves her rights to human dignity, access to education, freedom from discrimination, a decent life in a decent society and the right to fulfill her potentials as a human being and a citizen.

From Chibok to Kano, to Ikorodu, to Sokoto in the episodes under consideration, we lament the shame of a nation, and proclaim the right of the girl-child to dignity.

The actress, well-known for playing Hayley Ramsey in the Channel 4 soap and being the first disabled person to play a main part, claimed that when she returned, she was diagnosed with Guillian-Barre syndrome, losing the use of her legs, and was told she had miscarried.

She opened up about her tragic diagnosis following a recent study that connected the first evidence of the Zika virus to Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Kelly-Marie is now urging pregnant women not to travel to countries that have been hit by the virus, which has been blamed for causing miscarriages and the surge in babies with brain damage.

She told Liverpool Echo: ‘I went on holiday for two weeks and while there I came down with flu symptoms, I was aching all over. I put it down to picking up a bug, but I was covered from head to toe in mosquito bites – I looked like a Lion bar.

“I was 16 weeks pregnant, and two days before flying out I’d had my scan and everything was fine. I had all the advance tests and the day after getting home I got the results that everything was good. But I’d been home a few days and I’d gone back to my normal job at Ryanair and I didn’t feel right, I felt like I was walking on sponge.”

Stewart was admitted to hospital after tests showed she had little feeling in her legs. She was there for 10 months and unable to get out of bed as she was ‘completely paralysed’ from the waist down.’

She was then hit with the sad news that she had miscarried her baby in her first week in hospital.

She went on: ‘I was convinced that whatever was going on with me had affected the baby. It was hard to deal with because I was going through one lot of emotions because I’d lost the baby, but everything was about me being ok.’

Kelly-Marie, who married boyfriend James Lovelady in August, 2015, insisted that what happened to her was ‘too much of a coincidence’ to not be connected to the Zika virus.

‘This is something that will stick with me for the rest of my life,’ she said.

Chinese government’s “General Principle of Television Drama Production Content” detailed in a nine-page comprehensive document has made its way to the Internet.

It details a ban on specific content that has been the source of entertainment for the Chinese people and they are not happy about it.

The document, published last year in December, states that themes that promote witchcraft, reincarnation, promiscuity which challenges the sanctity of marriage or  displays of homosexuality which are regarded as “abnormal sexual relationships or sexual behaviour, have been banned, China Morning Post reports.

Cover page of the ‘General Principle of Television Drama Production Content’ guidelines.

Also romantic scenes that are “stimulating” are excluded. The ban also disallows dramatisation of teenage romance, smoking, alcohol consumption and fighting.

Li Jingsheng, chief of television drama under the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, states that all industry experts are expected to abide to the professional guideline.

The two played together for a season at Dortmund, and are both the leading scorers in the Bundesliga this season, with Aubameyang only a goal shy of Lewandowski’s 23.

“He already showed last season that he is able to score a lot of goals but this year he surprised me a bit,” the striker told Goal. “Dortmund are doing really well on the attack and they always can bank on Aubameyang. He is a great player, especially in terms of his pace. You mustn’t give him any space in the box or he’ll score.

“His pace is unbelievable. You don’t have a chance to catch him in his first 10 or 20 metres. Once he’s gone, you can forget it. He is in great form and he shows it every game.”

Bayern Munich are currently 5 points ahead of second placed Dortmund, and Lewandowski admitted it was not going to be an easy match.

“The game against Dortmund won’t be easy, for sure. BVB have been playing well all season long – in the Europa League too. The atmosphere in their stadium is great and it is always a pleasure to play there. We have won our last game at Dortmund and I expect a big game but, in the end, I hope that we’ll return to Munich with three points.

“I am playing here now so I don’t feel bad for them. I want to win. We are playing very well too but, on the other hand, you mustn’t forget that Dortmund could catch up to us very quickly if we have one or two more bad games.”

The veteran defender already announced he’s set to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, with the club saying they’re open to a renewal.

Terry has now further stated he’ll love to stay, but will leave if no new contract surfaces.

“I’m very hopeful,” he said. “I’ve been there 21 years and I’ll never kind of give up until it finally happens. But, who knows?

“I’ve still got a lot to give, whether that’s here [Chelsea] or somewhere else, for sure.”

With that run, Chelsea have moved into 10th in the Premier League – just eight points off fourth spot.

“Guus has been phenomenal since he come in. Not only this time, but last time [in 2009] as well,” Terry said.

“We can only focus on that and what he’s doing at the moment. But he’s doing a fantastic job, as are the players at the moment.”
