Paul Pogba’s Mother Reveals How Ferguson Begged – Paul Pogba’s world record 89 million-pound move to Manchester United is all the rave in the sports world right now.
Pogba, who had left Manchester United on a free transfer in 2012 to Juventus, returns to the club as they aim to return to glory, and his mother Yeo Moriba in an interview revealed the circumstances surrounding his first exit from the club.
Yeo revealed that the entire Pogba family had decided that it was best for Paul to leave the club after then manager Alex Ferguson had opted to call Paul Scholes out of retirement instead of giving him a first team chance.
“Ferguson punished him by not letting him play,” said his mother. “He even cried in Ferguson’s office for the way he was treated.”
She revealed that Ferguson however came back to beg before he left, but the decision was already made.
“He came here by himself,” said Yeo, laughing at the memory of Ferguson’s visit. “The Red Devils’ boss came to negotiate, but it was too late. We discussed together with his brothers and we all decided: he won’t sign again.”

The Fine Lady rapper, who has now gone spiritual, gave ladies pointers they can use to identify the right man, and told them to prepare themselves for him.
He wrote on his Instagram: “Being a Wife is not determined by age or by how long you have dated but by how ready your soul is to stay true to a covenant before God and Man through thick and thin.

“Bring God into it, Pray… Be still & Listen and let him lead ur spirit. Patience is key and a lot of people have asked me, when would i know its time or hes the right one…. 2 simple indicators…. •is HE leading you to GOD or AWAY from God? / is he Encouraging your personal growth or stunting it?… Let me add one more, is he your friend?
“A lot of people use financials as an indicator for marriage…. Well yes financial stability is a good thing but is NEVER the main thing! Any body can have money but how many have God?
“Proverbs 18:22 “He who finds a wife finds a good thing And obtains favor from the LORD.”
“Ladies it says he who finds, therefore while he is LOOKING for you, be so busy letting God mold you into your true self and destiny that HE is sold once he gets to the destination… Which is YOU!”

“People don’t know that I am a singer, apart from being a cute face in the front of the camera,” Gojko says. “I grew up in a small town in Eastern Europe. Then at the age of 20 I moved to the entertainment capital of the world. Here in Los Angeles I found myself doing anything related to entertainment.”
“However, only a handful of people know that apart from acting and modeling I can also sing. I started signing at the age of 7 in my folklore group.

His name is Kiere Espinoza and we have started working on my first single. I am very excited to announce that my music will finally be seen by people from all over the world.

“As someone who survived a lot in my life but made it, I do know that I can be and should be an example to many people that have dreams! Music was always something that can change my emotion to better or worse. I have decided to create something that is only going to wake up those wonderful and positive emotions in everyone who listens to it. I will start in September with promotions of my first single and I will post small parts of the song on my Instagram,” he added.

It was a memorable moment for Vietnam and Xuan Vinh Hoang, as the Vietnamese won his country’s first ever gold at the Olympic games.
The 41-year-old Vietnamese army member came out on top, after getting 202.5 points from 20 shots in the 10-metre air pistol. Brazil won silver, with Felipe Wu a narrow 0.4 points behind the eventual winner.
China’s Pang Wei took the bronze while defending Olympic champion Jin Jong-oh of South Korea failed to recover from a poor start and finished fifth.
For Hoang it was the realisation of an Olympic dream in a perfect opening day for Vietnam.
“Making this gold medal is a life memory, never forget this,” he said. “Because (it is the) first time making a gold medal for Vietnam.
“The Brazilian shooter very fast and stronger, but I think only ‘try try try’. On the last shot I don’t think gold or silver. I think only try.”
Wu was just as delighted to give the home crowd something to cheer during an epic battle which captivated the locals.
“I am just happy,” he said. “There are no words to describe how happy I am. We work very hard, and everything is worth the pain. Pain on my shoulder, pain in my back, but I will forget about all this pain now.”
“It is just perfect. I hope that the sport of shooting becomes more popular in Brazil. I don’t know how, but I hope people get interested for this sport and start to practise, and I think that is a good thing, to win a medal. I hope it will be good for shooting.”
Venus Williams has played in five Olympic singles tournament. Unfortunately, this will be the first time she didn’t make it past the first round.
The 36-year-old was close to winning the match against Kirsten Flipkens, but she kept losing her edge. The match, which lasted for three hours, saw Venus Williams lose 4-6, 6-3, 7-6.
Afterward, Williams did not speak to reporters. Instead, U.S. women’s tennis coach Mary Joe Fernandez did, saying that Williams was sick before arriving in Brazil. Fernandez added that Williams had cramping, dehydration and an upset stomach after her loss, but still hoped to play doubles Sunday with younger sister Serena.
“I would be highly surprised if she didn’t play, because this has been her goal for the last four years — to come back to the Olympics,” Fernandez said. “She wants to win a medal so badly in anything. Knowing Venus, she will be out there, no matter how badly she’s feeling.”
Williams owns four gold medals: one in singles and three in doubles. She owns 21 Grand Slam titles: seven in singles, 14 in doubles. But she labored at times Saturday and even showed frustration by shouting “Ridiculous!” after dropping one point.
Apparently down with kidney related disease, Nollywood actor, Leo Mezie, has now been stunned with yet another attack on his right leg, as he is in desperate need of financial help to get an urgent medical treatment abroad to forestall further collapse.
Mezie is said to have been suffering with a kidney related illness for quite a while before the situation degenerated to an advanced stage.
Though friends and well-wishers have been contributing money to enable him get a proper kidney transplant abroad; however the donation is not trickling in as expected.
Mezie, who has decided not to take the path of late compatriot, Muna Obiekwe, who died in silence, is currently crying for help as he is in need of N10 million for an immediate kidney transplant abroad.
Speaking to The Nation, the actor’s wife, Maureen Mezie, disclosed that his colleagues are doing all in their power to raise the N10 million, needed for a kidney transplant.
“They have been working together to raise the money as individuals and as a group. Truth be said, they do not want to lose any of their members again. Even those that we do not know have been contributing too. And most of them have been using their social media platforms to create awareness for the fund,” she said.
On plans to fly the actor abroad for surgery, she stated: “he is currently on dialysis. They are checking to see if the kidney will respond to the treatment. But once the money is completed, he will be flown abroad for the surgery.”
Soliciting for the ill actor, Nollywood actor and movie director, Charles Inojie, said;
“Hello my family, friends and fans all over the world. I ask of you most passionately to give your window’s mite to help a friend, brother and colleague (Leo Mezie) who urgently requires a N10 million medical intervention to stay alive. It sounds big, but where there’s a will they say, there’s a way. Together, we can make this happen. May the sacrificial reward of giving never elude any of us.”
Nigerian Actress, Rita Dominic also said;
“My people, I’m here to plead again for my dear colleague Leo Mezie… Please let’s give whatever we can to save this talented actor’s life. God bless you all for standing by Nollywood always,” she posted.
As at August 2, 2016, his colleagues were only able to raise N1.2 million, which is quite sad.
If you’re willing to help, you can send whatever you have to his account number Mezie O Leonard 0702083428 Access bank.
