Klopp: Conte Is Just Like Guardiola

Featured Image

Jurgen Klopp has called Chelsea manager Antonio Conte the “Pep Guardiola of Juventus”.

The former Juventus coach has helped Chelsea to 10 points out of 12 points this season, impressing Klopp.

Klopp was quick to acknowledge the quality of Conte as a coach, as he prepares his own side for Friday’s mouth-watering clash at Stamford Bridge

“He looks quite emotional, even when they don’t score. Obviously he is involved in the game, but that’s not the most important thing,” Klopp said.

“The very important thing is he is a great manager, something like the ‘Pep Guardiola of Juventus’ if you want.

“He created their special type of play and had a very successful time there and with the national team. It is quite impressive what he has done until now, but I don’t play against Antonio Conte.”

Victor Moses Discusses Life Under New Manager Antonio Conte 

Featured Image

​Victor Moses has paid tribute to new manager Antonio Conte as he finds himself back in the first team at Stamford Bridge.

Moses, who spent the last three seasons out on loan, has been part of Conte’s squad for every one of their games this season.

And he has credited the Italian with changing the club’s fortunes, thanks to a strenuous pre-season training regimen.

‘He is a great manager if you look at what he did at Juventus and he is a very passionate manager and he wants the best from us,’ said Moses.

‘You could see in pre-season how hard everyone was working. I think he is the right man for this club

‘He came in and changed quite a few things and everyone was expecting that. The food regime and the training have changed and he wants everyone to gel together as a team. 

He speaks to every player and wants the best from each and every one of us, and he will get the best out of us.’

While Moses and his team-mates found the change in diet and extra fitness session a struggle, the Nigerian international says he knows it will boost his game as he prepares for his 50th game for the club, more than four years since signing from Wigan. 

‘We appreciate that and it will help us in the long run,’ he added.

‘We know what is expected of us this season and we will hopefully do our best.

‘It is going to be a hard league and we have to take every game seriously. Every one is a must-win game for us.’

Buhari Rewrites Change Gospel

Featured Image

Buhari Rewrites Change Gospel, By Okey Ndibe

On May 29, 2015, Nigerians handed the ball of change to President Muhammadu Buhari (aka Captain Buhar), a self-acclaimed wizard of change. From the sidelines, they commenced the business of eating gbegiri, tuwo shinkafa and nkwobi, washing it all down with Orijin Bitters and squirts of pure water. From time to time, in between mouthfuls, the spectators would look in the direction of the field, and be thoroughly astonished. What they saw at each glance was that the very wizard of change was stuck in the midfield.

This piece was written by Okey Ndibe. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

They watched him dribble incessantly in the midfield, juggling the ball around such formidable opponents as political graft, legislative greed, judicial corruption, bureaucratic ineptitude, infrastructural backwardness, power failure, soaring unemployment, health scare, and educational collapse. He did amazing things with the ball, but seemed adamant against venturing toward the goal post.

Nigerians, exasperated, raised the amp of their voices, urging lanky Captain Buhar to move like Neymar, to slice past all defenders like Messi—and to aim at scoring goals for (a) change. For months and months, the captain was unheeding.

And then, last Thursday, September 8, as if tired of the noise from the sidelines, the captain lobbed the ball—no, not toward the goalpost—right into the stands. Then Captain Buhar donned his flowing white agbada and read us all a pretty speech to spell out his act. In sum, he told every single one of us to be our own Neymar and Messi, to score our own goal.

The subject of the speech was “Change Begins With Me”. Proclaimed the captain: “Nigeria today is passing through a challenging moment where hardly anything works in a normal manner. Many have attributed this phenomenon to the total breakdown of our core values over the years. It is safe to say today that honesty, hard work, Godliness have given way to all kinds of manifestations of lawlessness and degeneration in our national life. This is why we have among our cardinal objectives ‘change’, which implies the need for a change of attitude and mindset in our everyday life.”

Caught between false modesty and pride, he added: “I need not mention the serious effort we have engaged in since the inception of this administration on the fight against corruption in our public life. With the progress we have so far made in that regard, we feel the need to ensure that we put in place the necessary sustainable framework for action and measures that will help to entrench and consolidate the progress achieved so far.

“This we believe can best be maintained through attitudinal change, and the change of our mindset in private and public life. The campaign we are about to launch today is all about the need for us to see change not merely in terms of our economic, social progress but in terms of our personal behaviour on how we conduct ourselves, engage our neighbours, friends and generally how we relate with the larger society in a positive and definitive way and manner that promotes our common good and common destiny, change at home, change in the work place, change at traffic junction, change at traffic lights etc…The long-cherished and time honoured, time-tested virtues of honesty, integrity, hard work, punctuality, good neighbourliness, abhorrence of corruption and patriotism, have given way in the main to dishonesty, indolence, unbridled corruption and widespread impunity.”

Having struck all the familiar rhetorical notes, the Captain urged all Nigerians to “realise that the change they want to see begins with them, and that personal and social reforms are not theoretic exercise. If you have not seen the change in you, you cannot see it in others or even the larger society. In other words, before you ask ‘where is the change they promised us’, you must first ask how far have I changed my ways, ‘what have I done to be part of the change for the greater good of society.’” And he signed off by declaring, “Indeed I say to the glory of Mighty Allah, ‘Change Begins With Me’”.

President Buhari’s testament on change is, in a profound sense, self-evidently sensible. No deity or angel, much less a mere mortal, has the capacity to solve Nigeria’s crises. In fact, you can’t change a people if they are determined to cleave to toxic values and pathological conduct. On numerous occasions, I’ve cautioned against the Nigerian attitude of wrecking our lives and country, all the while trusting that God (or some superhuman, deputising for divinity) would come down and clean up after us.

The question is, what took Mr. Buhari so long? Why did he and his party give the impression, during his run for the presidency, that he personified change and incarnated the answers to Nigeria’s longstanding malaise? Months ago, in a piece titled, “What we all owe Buhari,” I’d written as follows: “What Buhari owes Nigerians is to invest his time and energy everyday to turning Nigeria around. But—even at his best—he can only get us so far. Nigeria’s fortune is in the hands of all of us—all one hundred and seventy million of us. If we want a different country, a healthier, more robust Nigeria, we better realise that it’s up to us, not to one man.

“Let’s take one example: corruption. Jailing a few corrupt politicians, or even a lot of them, won’t make corruption disappear from the Nigerian space. The police, customs officials, or reporters cannot, with one hand, demand and receive illicit gratification, and, with the other, declare that they want a clime free of corruption.

“If Nigeria must be rid of this malaise, then Nigerians must face up to their culpability in fertilising this unwholesome practice. Every Okeke, Segun, Okon and Musa should resolve neither to offer a bribe nor demand one. We should abandon the habit of excusing or defending corruption when the accused perpetrators happen to belong to our ethnic or religious group…If Mr. Buhari is to succeed, he must define his agenda and stay the course. But—of even more critical import—he’d need Nigerians’ collective commitment and eternal vigilance.”

A more important question to President Buhari is why, as president, and having heralded himself as a change catalyst, he has hardly defined an agenda nor used his offices to alter the system of doing things in Nigeria. It’s not enough to urge Nigerians to cease giving or receiving bribes when you, as president, have not put in place a system to deter police officers who shoot and kill drivers for refusing to cough up a fifty naira bribe. It’s worse when the president has done zilch to address allegations of corruption against some of his top appointees.

Last week, the anti-corruption group, BudgIT, questioned the sincerity of the administration’s “Change Begins With Me” mantra. It noted that Mr. Buhari and leaders at all levels of governance had failed the transparency test. BudgIT challenged: “Let change start with National Assembly telling us how N115bn is spent. Let change start with a cogent explanation why Nigerian government needs 11 aircraft in a recession. Let change start with the government responding to our FOI (Freedom of Information) requests on how much money has been given to states as bailout. Let change start with the government explaining why it released N400bn for capital expenditure, with no project details…Let change start with the government telling the people how much funds have been recovered and who returned what…Let change start with the reversal of illegal recruitment into government agencies…”

Featured Image

​Manchester United will make a fresh approach for Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho in January, according to calciomercato.com

The 24-year-old Portugal international has been tracked by a number of Premier League clubs, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Everton reported suitors.

However, it appears Jose Mourinho has stolen a march on the rivals, with the United boss intent on bringing his compatriot to Old Trafford once the window reopens.

It is understood that Man United boss Jose Mourinho is still searching for a defensive midfielder after Paul Pogba struggled to hold his position in the Manchester derby last weekend.

According to Calciomercato.com, Mourinho has identified Carvalho as the player to boost his squad, and the 20-time English champions will make their move when the January transfer window opens for business.

Carvalho, who was part of the Portugal squad that won Euro 2016, came through the youth system at Sporting before making his first-team debut in 2011.

Alan Pardew : Wilfred Zaha Worth £50 Millon 

Featured Image

​Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew says it would take an offer of £50m for the club to consider selling winger Wilfried Zaha.

The former Manchester United man showcased his quality on Saturday against Middlesbrough with a classy assist for Christian Benteke’s opener before netting the winner in a 2-1 win for Palace at the Riverside Stadium.

“Of course I sat down and spoke to him. I want someone to blow the doors off if they’re going to come for him, not have him go somewhere as a squad player at £16-17m,” Pardew said

“When you see someone put £50m that’s when you think about it. That assist for the first goal – I can’t ask for more.”

Zaha was named Palace’s Player of the Year last season and Pardew revealed in May Sir Alex Ferguson told him the player who was his last ever signing was certainly still good enough to be at United.

Despite the speculation surrounding his future, Pardew says the 23-year-old’s attitude has been first-class.

“Trust me; I’ve been in the position when you can’t get anything out of a player. Us Premier League managers pull our hair out. That’s not been the case with Wilf,” Pardew added.

“If I was to mark him out of ten I would give him a ten, that’s how good his attitude’s been.”

​Sunderland defender Lamine Kone has signed a new five-year contract at the Stadium of Light.

The deal will see the 27-year-old Ivory Coast international remain on Wearside until 2021.

“He has only been playing in the Premier League since January, but in that time we have already seen what he is capable of.

“The challenge for Lamine now is to build on what has been a very positive introduction to English football and to continue to improve and grow as a player.”

Sarri: Napoli Have A Lot To Learn

Featured Image

Napoli head coach, Maurizio Sarri believes they still have a lot to learn after their 2-1 win over Dinamo Zagreb.

Milik scored a brace to help the Serie A club secure their first win of the group stages, but Sarri believes they can be better.

“There were a few more errors than usual, hopefully down to the emotion and tension of such an important match,” Sarri said at a media conference.

“After taking the lead, we remained in the perennial uncertainty between wanting to finish it off or control the lead. We discussed it in the locker room and I am happy that they see it the same way I do, they weren’t very happy with the performance.

“The fact remains winning our first Champions League game of the season away from home is a precious result. We broke the ice, but have a lot to learn from this match. We were focused on getting a success here and we did it. Overall it all ended well for us.”

Milik’s double saw him take his Napoli tally to four goals in as many appearances in all competitions and the former Ajax striker was understandably delighted.

“It was a magical night for me and a perfect night for Napoli,” Milik told Premium Sport.

“We came here to win against a very strong team and we can return to Italy with a smile on our face.

“I am very happy. It was my first European game with Napoli and only my fourth in total.”

In a letter with reference number GA/Abibo/00226/2016, written by her lawyers, Granville Abibo (SAN) and Co, which was addressed to the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, Patience, the wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, hence, called on the anti graft agency and Skye Bank to lift the restriction on the accounts.

The letter read in part, “It is noteworthy to emphasise that the said accounts, which were in US dollar denomination, were card-based accounts and our client is the sole signatory to these accounts.

“However, our client has been operating the said accounts using the cards for her medical bill payments and purchases for her private purposes without any let or hindrance.

“Our client was therefore surprised when the said cards stop functioning on July 7, 2016, or thereabout. Our client immediately, thereupon, contacted Skye Bank Plc through our solicitors.

‘‘It was only then that the bank officials informed our client that the said accounts were placed on a ‘No Debit Order’ following investigations and instruction from your commission and this is without notice to our client by either the bank or the commission.

“It is in the light of the foregoing that we urge you to use your good offices to vacate the ‘No Debit/Freezing Order’ placed on the said accounts.”

She added, “Despite the foregoing, our client, who is a law-abiding citizen, had watched with surprise how efforts were being made surreptitiously to indirectly harass or harangue her and short-change her of her personal funds in breach of her fundamental human rights.

“We urge you sir, to kindly intervene to stop the untoward and wrongful actions of your officials to embarrass, inconvenience and short-change our client”.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has denied that its members issued a strike notice to the Nigerian government over unpaid dues as reported by some newspapers.

A statement had earlier been credited to the Chairman of its Abuja’s chapter, Dr Ben Ugheoke, threatening that the union would embark on a warning strike on October 2, 2016.

However, on Tuesday, in a rebuttal, Ugheoke, stated that the reports were false and unfounded as he did not grant any interview or issue a statement on pending strike.

The statement read: “My attention has been drawn to a publication online and on social media captioned UniAbuja ASUU to begin strike on Oct. 2.

“The public and ASUU National Executive Council should know and note that no one came, either as journalist or any press team, to interview me. “I hereby denounce such a publication as the work of mischief makers, targeted at misleading the unsuspecting public about the trajectory of the struggles of ASUU.

“ASUU is committed to revitalising the University of Abuja and indeed, the education system of Nigeria.’’

Dr. Ugheoke therefore urged the public and other stakeholders in the education sector to disregard the report as it did not originate from him.
