Drake Refuses To Pay Detail’s Medical Bills After Bodyguard Beatdown

Featured Image

Detroit-based producer Detail sued Drake after he got a beatdown by the rapper’s bodyguard, Chubbs and now the Toronto MC is refusing to pay a dime.

In June 2014, Detail arrived at Drake’s estate late one night to work, where he was confronted by his bodyguard Chubbs, who beat him up. Drake claims that the producer knew the dangers of showing up to his home unannounced adding that his security guard was only acting in self defense.

Detail a.k.a Noel Fisher filed a lawsuit against Drake, his company October’s Very Own (OVO SOUND) and his bodyguard Chubbs demanding they pay for his medical bills after allegedly suffering a broken jaw following the confrontation.

Drake replied the lawsuit with a self-defense argument, therefore saying he doesn’t owe Detail a dime even though the producer claims he was so badly hurt he couldn’t work for a year.

Detail

Detail says in his suit that the OVO boss offered him a job as an executive producer, but he didn’t want to be tied to one artiste so he rejected the offer, this led to a breakdown in their relationship. But then in June 2014, he was invited by the rapper to his Calabasas home to discuss the idea of working together again.

When he arrived at the home at about 2am, he immediately encountered Chubbs who he says punched him so hard that his jaw broke.

He also added that while he was being beaten, the bodyguard said “I will beat all your a**es, including your b***h’s. I don’t give a f**k. I will hit you again. Do you think Drake is soft? You think Drake’s a punk? 

The Toronto rapper denies all of Detail’s claims in his court documents, saying that his bodyguard acted in self defense and used no more force than was reasonably necessary, demanding that the suit be thrown out and that Detail be ordered to cover his legal bills.

Victor Moses Could Be Banned After Turning Down Super Eagles Call Up

Featured Image

Chelsea star Victor Moses is reportedly at risk of being banned for their match against Leicester City after turning down a call-up to the Nigeria squad.

According to Complete Sports Nigeria, the Nigerian FA doesn’t entirely believe that the winger was injured – and are set to launch an investigation in to the matter.

Watford’s Isaac Success is also under suspicion.

If it is found that either of the pair lied to get out of international duty, then FIFA could hand out a domestic suspension to the guilty party.

Moses has been in fine form for the Blues, coming to the fore under new manager Antonio Conte.

FIFA regulation on feigning injury in international breaks


A player who has been called up by his association for one of its representative teams is, unless otherwise agreed by the relevant association, not entitled to play for the club… during the period for which he has been released or should have been released.
This restriction on playing for the club shall, moreover, be prolonged by five days in the event that the player, for whatsoever reason, did not wish to or was unable to comply with the call-up.

However, this development could be a major blow to the 25-year-old, who has been either loaned out or a bit-part player for the vast majority of his four-year Chelsea career.

The Londoners face Leicester, who they beat 4-2 after extra time in the third round of the EFL Cup last month, knowing that they need to dispatch the Premier League champions to continue recovering from straight defeats to Arsenal and Liverpool.

74-Year-Old Bicycle Repairer Defiles Teenage Girls With N400 In Delta

Featured Image

The Delta State Police Command has apprehended a 74-year-old bicycle repairer, accused of defiling two teenage girls, at Obiaruku in Ukwuani Local Government Area of the state.

The accused, Godwin Agada, was said to have ‘unlawfully’ had carnal knowledge of his victims – Blessing Umukoro, 12 and Ebele Olise, 14 – in his workshop at 9, Morka Road, Ubiaruku area of the state on October 3, 2016.

MUST READ: Why Chibok Girls Freedom Continues As Mirage

Speaking on the incident to newsmen on Friday, the state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Celestina Kalu, said that a report from a medical practitioner lent credence to the defilement.

The PRO said: “On October 3, 2016, one Sunday Umukoro reported at the police station in Ubiaruku that on observing the painful movement of his 12-year-old daughter, Blessing Umukoro, he inquired from her and discovered that on October 2, about 7:00 p.m., one Godwin Agbada, aged 74, a bicycle repairer at No. 9, Morka Road, Ubiaruku, defiled the said Blessing Umukoro in his workshop at Old Ubiaruku/Sapele road, Ubiaruku by having unlawful carnal knowledge of her.

“The said Godwin has been arrested and medical report has confirmed the commission of the offence.

“Investigation revealed that the victim was invited to the suspect’s workshop by one Ebele Olise, aged 14, where both were defiled by the suspect who, thereafter, gave them N200.00 each.”

In respond to questions while being paraded before newsmen at the state police headquarters in Asaba, the septuagenarian admitted to the crime but expressed regret over his action – saying he did it just to satisfy his sexual desire.

Pa Agada continued: “I am married with five children and yes, I fit look my children for face defend watin I do wey police arrest me.

“I noh shame, but I noh happy with wetin I do. Na devil make me do am.”

Bastian Schweinsteiger Won’t Be Joining New York Red Bulls 

Featured Image

New York Red Bulls have ruled out making a move for Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Schweinsteiger has yet to make an appearance for United under new manager Jose Mourinho this season and MLS commissioner Don Garber has said the American league would welcome the arrival of the former Germany captain.

The 32-year-old’s contract at Old Trafford expires in June 2018 and he has said United will be his “last club in Europe”, but it appears the Red Bulls will not be his next destination.

“Bastian Schweinsteiger is a great player with a great career. But there have been no conversations, he isn’t and will not be a topic for us,” Red Bull’s Oliver Mintzlaff told German daily Bild.

Other MLS teams are still likely to be interested in signing the ex-Bayern Munich star, with FC Dallas president Dan Hunt recently declaring his admiration for the midfielder.

Garber said earlier this week: “We would receive Bastian with open arms. He would be a leader for many of our young players.

“Of course, we’re following exactly what happened with Bastian.”

Why Chibok Girls Freedom Continues As Mirage [Must Read]

Why Chibok Girls Freedom Continues As Mirage, By Ahmad Salkida

The biographer of Muhammadu Buhari: The Challenge of Leadership in Nigeria, Professor John Paden, revealed that the leadership of Boko Haram demanded 5 billion Euros as ransom for the release of the abducted girls, and on the basis of the present exchange rate, this comes to about 1.7 trillion naira. Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s Minister of Information took it further in a recent press briefing.

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

According to him, “on 4th August, 2015, the persons who were to be part of the swap arrangements and all others involved in the operation were transported to Maiduguri, Borno State. This team, with the lead facilitator, continued the contact with the group holding the Chibok girls… All things were in place for the swap, which was mutually agreed. Expectations were high. Unfortunately, after more than two weeks of negotiation and bargains, the group, just at the dying moments, issued new set of demands, never bargained for or discussed by the group before the movement to Maiduguri.”

I am not sure I understand why our leaders chose to declassify important aspects of this negotiation when the girls are still in captivity, but I can categorically say that the claim of a demand of 5 billion Euros as published by President Buhari’s biographer gravely undermines the truth, in a manner that jeopardises the credibility of the Presidency. And while it is true that the captors of the Chibok girls have shifted the goal post several times when a swap deal was near, we must ask ourselves, what was responsible for the volatility that has denied the rest of the surviving Chibok girls and other captives’ freedom? How did I know this and write with such audacity? I was the only negotiator that was flown to Maiduguri with some detainees in an Air force plane and I also stayed in the Maimalari military barracks for over three weeks with the detainees, trying to reach a deal. It was the window I presented that Lai Mohammed spoke about.

READ ALSO: REVEALED: Boko Haram Demanded N1.7 Trillion ‘Ransom’ To Free Chibok Girls

The Nigerian security and political authorities have repeatedly called my professional access to the leadership of both the “Jama’atu Ahlus-Sunna Lidda’Awati Wal Jihad,” and the “Islamic State West Africa Province” (both of which are called Boko Haram and are operating in the Lake Chad), to their use. And from my professional experience with both parties, namely the government authorities and the insurgents, I can state that these abducted girls would long have returned home if political and security officials in government have shown better understanding of what is at play.

However, the insurgents are heavily rigid, and would normally give windows that are tied to timelines. Never, even from the days of former President Goodluck Jonathan till today’s dispensation has the government accepted a window of, say, two, three weeks and abided by it. Never! So we are dealing with insurgents who do not recognise your bureaucratic heritage and continue to shut out the windows each time the indicated timelines elapses. We are also dealing with political and security authorities that have never considered it expedient to do their housekeeping ahead of the acceptance of negotiation windows that are tied to timelines.

There is no point delving into much details at this point, but suffice it to state that both sides have their share of blame. My experience is that both the Buhari-led government and the preceding Jonathan administration desired a negotiated end to this imbroglio but neither did nor has shown any eagerness in tracking the footprints and understanding the tendencies of the enemy. Left to each, the negotiator would be directed or ordered to, ‘go tell those insurgents to bring over those girls before dinner time.’ That has always been the attitude.

Ordinarily, I would have never joined issues with the government on such a sensitive matter or disclosed all these, but the issues have already been declassified by Mr. Lai Mohammed. I am a journalist, first, negotiation is secondary, and it is also my credibility and life that is at stake here, whether I chose to speak out or remain silent. I was not only involved in one or two attempts to free the Chibok girls with the current government, but on three separate occasions and even as recently as May/June 2016, a few months before I was declared wanted for allegedly refusing to cooperate with the same government and for having “links to terrorism” by the Nigerian Army. On each of these occasions, I have always been involved on invitation by the government. Never mind if you ended up being stranded for their failure to pick up requisite bills related to the very reason for which you were invited.

So why have the series of engagements not been able to yield any meaningful outcome? I can only advice officials on the strength of their convictions and motivations. I cannot force government, neither can I force the leadership of the insurgents to do what they don’t want to do. Worse, there is a clique of vested interests that can scare anyone into silence within and around government; they have exploited my silence to develop a false narrative. There is so much misinformation that officials have weaved and made members of the public to be bask in.

Have I been made rich by my service in this respect? I just mentioned above that hardly was there any time I was invited by the Federal Government that I was not compelled to borrow money to tidy up basic bills in the course of my assignment. In all the revelations about who pocketed what, it would have been necessary to open the books to where Salkida received that atrocious sum from government or anyone representing government. Today, I am stranded with my family in Abuja, after I was declared wanted for my decade-long professional relationship with the leadership of the insurgents; a relationship the government took advantage of several times. At least, today, I am probably the only one that has gone to the location of swaps with detainees and set my eyes on the girls in their early days in captivity, under a presidential cover to negotiate.

It is possible for Nigerians who hear or read of the outlandish sum quoted by Buhari’s biographer as demand for ransom to take liberty in linking such figure with today’s publicly known negotiator. Therefore, it would be a great thing if officials of government, in line with the declassifying process, also let Nigerians know how they came about such figure as a ransom demand by the insurgents. I want to categorically state here that there are many people who can negotiate an end to this debacle and it is also not beyond the bounds of possibility to rescue the girls militarily.

I am today being treated as an enemy of the state and denied the official communication to return to the UAE and continue my hustle. I have even been denied my international passport, as I write this article. Worse still, I was denied any form of official intervention to settle down in my own country after I lost everything and returned to Nigeria. I am being deliberately strangulated by the same officials who made me to embark on self-exile in 2013.

I am from Borno State. This protracted crisis has affected me and my family directly. I have no stake in it other than to be able to return home and live peacefully there. If I die today, as my life is clearly in danger, my death will be a peaceful one because so far it is integrity that has saved me from snares of the powerful officials who run businesses that are tied to the spiralling bloodbath.

Ryan Giggs On Why He Isn’t The New Swansea Manager

Featured Image

Ryan Giggs has said he held several meetings to discuss becoming Swansea’s new manager, but the Welsh club did not match his “ambitions”.

The Manchester United legend was one of three pundits analysing England’s 2-0 win against Malta but prior to the World Cup qualifier at Wembley, presenter Mark Pougatch questioned Giggs about whether he was close to taking over from Francesco Guidolin.

“I was enjoying my year out, which was a bit of travelling and broadcasting, and I then got the call off Swansea,” Giggs told ITV Sport.

“I met with them a few times. But in the end there was just mixed messages from the football side and the ownership side of the club and I just felt that their ambitions didn’t really match mine so it didn’t work out.”

Following the depature of Guidolin, Swansea immediately announced Bob Bradley as his replacement and the American impressed at his official unveiling.

Why We Raided The Homes Of ‘High Ranking’ Nigerian Judges – DSS

Featured Image

The Department of State Services (DSS) has confirmed that it invaded the homes of some high ranking and serving judges in Abuja and Port Harcourt on Friday night.

According to the agency, the operations it carried were based on allegations of corruptions and other acts of professional misconduct levelled against a few of the suspected Judges of the Supreme, Appeal and High Courts.

READ ALSO: DSS Operatives Invade Judge’s Residence, Allegedly ‘Rough-Handled’ Wike

Addressing a news conference at the DSS headquarters, Abuja on Saturday, a DSS operative, Garba Abdullahi, explained that the Department had been monitoring the lifestyles of some judges, and that it was determined to bring sanity to the judiciary.

His words: “The action is in line with its core mandate, as we have been monitoring the expensive and luxurious lifestyle of some of the judges as well as complaints from the concerned public over judgment obtained fraudulently and on the basis amounts of money paid.

“The judges involved were invited, upon which due diligence was exhibited and their premises searched. The searches have uncovered huge raw cash of various denominations, local and foreign currencies, with real estate worth several millions of naira and documents affirming unholy acts by these judges.”

“In one of the states where the operations were conducted, credible intelligence revealed that the Judge had Two Million United States Dollars ($2,000,000 USD) stashed in his house.

“When he was approached for due search to be conducted, he in concert with the state governor, mobilised thugs against the Service team.

“The team restrained itself in the face of unbridled provocative activities by those brought in by the governor. Unfortunately, the judge and the governor also engaged the tacit support of a sister security agency.

“The Service surveillance team noticed that upon frustrating the operation, the judge with the active support of the governor craftily moved the money to an unknown location which the Service is currently making effort to unravel.”

Meanwhile, he said large amount including foreign/local currencies had been recovered.

Garba gave the summaries of these to include: N93,558,000.00, $530,087, £25,970 and €5,680 (euro).

At the early hours of today, the houses of two Justices of the Supreme Court – Justices Walter Onnoghen and Sylvester Ngwuta – as well as two judges of the Federal High Court, Justices Adeniyi Ademola and Nnamdi Dimgba, were invaded by the DSS.

After the raid, Justice Ademola was taken away at about 5am.

Martin Caceres Set For Inter Milan Trial

Featured Image

Martin Caceres could be set for a trial with Inter Milan, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Caceres is currently a free agent after his deal expired at Juventus.

The former Juventus defender is not the only player on Inter’s shortlist which also includes Aleix Vidal, Benfica’s Semedo and Juventus’ Stephan Lichtsteiner. Caceres, how either ver, is the only one who would join the San Siro outfit for free (and immediately).

​Caceres had been linked with joining Inter for the whole summer transfer window, but – surprisingly – he could not close any deal with Inter, nor with any other suitor interested.

​According to goal.com, Caceres, 29, has offered his services to Inter though the Serie A sides have put transfer talks on hold and will inform Caceres, whether they want to sign him or not.

One reason for Inter’s reluctance to sign him could be the player’s precarious physical condition or some off the field matters which have recently affected the former Barcelona defender.

Between Tinubu And Buhari: The Modern Day Afonja And Alimi, By Reno Omokri

The present trials of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the colossus of the South-West is not surprising to those who have vision. I saw it coming and that was why over two years ago, precisely on Tuesday, May 27, 2014, I wrote a back page op-ed in ThisDay newspaper titled “From Battleground to Common Ground” and in that piece, I said:

“A comrade is not for what you are for, neither does he share the same interests as you. A comrade is simply one who is against what you are against. In other words, you are bound by a common enemy.

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

The All Progressives Congress, is a party founded on this premise.

Those who are enemies of the president (Goodluck Jonathan) and the PDP gathered together to form a party whose foundation is their common enemy.

They share no ideological connection, neither are they friends. In actual fact, they may even hate each other, only that they hate the president and the PDP more and are wiling to temporarily suppress their hatred for each other in other to gang up against their common enemy.

In my experience, it is better to have a party built on common interests than to have one built on a common enemy. This is because as even a political novice will tell you, there are no permanent friends or permanent enemies only permanent interests.

Now, if the above is true, what would happen to a party that is built on a common enemy?

Parties built on this foundation last only as long as the enemy is in power. Once their enemy is no longer in power the party disintegrates.”

It does not matter if you hate Reno Omokri’s guts, but ask yourself if what I said has not turned out to be the truth.

In the space of just a month, Bola Tinubu has been deliberately demystified and treated with such contempt that even those who he considered his worst enemies find themselves feeling sorry for him.

But he should have seen it coming!

The unraveling of Bola Tinubu actually began on the June 3, 2016, when President Muhammadu Buhari publicly and right in Tinubu’s face told him at a reception the president held for members of the National Assembly at the Presidential Villa that the All Progressives Congress had no such position as a National Leader.

I know this because a Senator who attended the function called me almost immediately after the event and told me about how the hall descended into almost pin drop silence after the president made that assertion.

I can assure my readers that President Muhammadu Buhari would never have made such a remark prior to the 2015 elections. But who needs a piece of toilet paper after it has done its job!

That remark was the signal that sleeper agents within the APC were waiting for to begin the unraveling of the masquerade.

Teaching him a lesson in Ondo State is only the beginning. Bola Tinubu’s comeuppance is not yet complete in the eyes of his traducers.

And then look at the way he is portrayed in Professor John Paden’s biography of the president. Paden portrays Tinubu as a desperate power monger who kept throwing himself at Buhari only to be rejected at each instance. Tinubu, see how low you have fallen!

I do not know why Bola Tinubu is angry at Paden. Did he not read that this is an official biography?

Paden was not there during the horse trading. The book was written with the cooperation of President Buhari. The things he wrote about Tinubu were the accounts he was given by the president.

So Tinubu should call a spade a spade. President Buhari merely told the world what he really thinks of Tinubu.

And look at all the men around President Buhari who got to where they are on the back of Tinubu. Has anyone of them come out to speak in his defense? Where is Vice President Osinbajo? He can blame Jonathan but cannot defend his benefactor. Where is Fashola? He can come up with excuses for giving Nigerians darkness but cannot speak up for his Oga? Lai Mohammed is nowhere to be found. Perhaps he is too busy dressing up masquerades or looking for a parastatal under him to loan him some money!

At the end of the day, after all the terrible things the propaganda wing of APC said and did to Ayo Fayose and Femi Fani Kayode, who came to the help of Tinubu but the two men demonised by the very same propaganda machinery that Tinubu helped set up?

And as for Tinubu, I cannot imagine why someone will write a book and insult you in it and still invite you to the launch and you agreed to go simply because he is a president.

Even worse, they asked you to write a review for the book and you did! Is this the same Tinubu that was so mouthy under Jonathan? Look at how he has become a chihuahua today. Lord have mercy!

Tinubu! Your brand of Afonja is too much!

Did you not see what ex-President Goodluck Jonathan did with the so called Leadership Award. You do not honour a gathering designed to reduce you with your presence. As the late kakanfo MKO Abiola would say “a man who allows his head to be used to break a coconut may not live to eat it”!

Even the well respected Pastor Osinbajo cannot even publicly come to your defense and tell the truth of how you helped him secure his exalted office. Yet he is the chief beneficiary of your generosity.

My advise to you, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is this: a woman who continues to make herself available to a man that only remembers her when he needs her services to satisfy his lustfulness should not be surprised when her own children deny that she is their mother!

Finally, going forward, before labeling people like Ayo Fayose and Femi Fani-Kayode as enemies, remember that it is better to be insulted with the truth than flattered with a lie.

West Ham To Offer ‘In Form’ Micheal Antonio New Contract

Featured Image

West Ham star Michail Antonio could earn second new deal after his sensational early-season form

​The 26-year-old has made an electric start to the campaign by notching five goals despite his side’s poor start to the campaign.

West Ham handed the 26-year-old a new four-year contract in July.

But Antonio, who has broken into the England squad this season, could be about to be offered a new and improved deal to reward his form, according to the Daily Mirror.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic revealed last month that he held talks with Antonio following his maiden international call-up to try and ensure he keeps his feet on the ground.

Bilic said: “We’ve had a few talks. Make no mistake, he was confident before, he’s a very confident lad.

“All he has to do now is not to change – not to change the way he plays, the way he trains, everything, and we have to help him with that.”

Ivanovic – Arnautovic Has Gotten Too Good For Stoke

Featured Image

Branislav Ivanovic has hailed Arnautovic’s quality and believes the Austria international has outgrown Stoke City.

Ivanovic’s Serbia will face Austria in the world cup qualifier and the defender is not under any illusion as to who he will be coming up against.

And even though Arnautovic has only scored once for Stoke this season, the striker netted twice for Austria in their 2-2 draw against Wales.

“I have the utmost respect for Arnautovic because he has matured in the last year and a half or two,” he told a media conference.

“He has drawn a lot of attention here [in Serbia] because of his heritage [he has a Serbian father] and in footballing terms, he has perhaps improved beyond the quality of the club he plays for.

“We have to close him down and if we do, we have a good chance of keeping a clean sheet.”

Matteo Darmian could leave Manchester United to join Inter Milan in January, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Nolito: I Was Close To Barcelona Return Before I Joined City

Featured Image

Nolito has made it known he was close to rejoining Barcelona before he signed for Manchester City.

The former Celta Vigo striker was close to signing again for Barcelona five years after leaving the club, but joined the EPL club instead.

And Nolito admitted it was a move that almost came to fruition before City paid his €18 million buyout close to Celta.

“I was close to Barcelona,” he told Mundo Deportivo. “But in the end I decided to go to Manchester City.

“I think it was the best decision for me and my family and I am happy to play for City.”

Nolito’s move meant he once again linked up with Guardiola, who sanctioned his sale to Benfica when the Spaniard was Barca coach.

“[Our relationship is] good, pretty good, I’m not complaining,” he added.

“It’s a privilege for me to work with him and I try to learn every day and take advantage of the opportunities he is giving me.”

AC Milan Planning Bid For Manchester United’s Morgan Schneiderlin

Featured Image

AC Milan are also believed to be lining up a swoop for out-of-favour Man Utd midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, according to reports in the Italian media.

The Serie A club are now looking for a replacement for midfielder Riccardo Montolivo, who suffered a knee injury in Italy’s World Cup qualifier against Spain on Thursday night that is likely to rule him out of action for the next six months.

Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has struggled for playing time under Jose Mourinho having made only four appearances for United this season. The French midfielder joined United in a £25million deal last year from Southampton.

However, Jose Mourinho does not consider him vital to his plans, having started Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba in midfield. Now, latest reports from MilanLive suggest that the Serie A giants are interested in securing the services of the out of favour midfielder.

Boateng: Ronaldinho Is Better Than Maradona, Zidane And Pele

Featured Image

KP Boateng has stated that Ronaldinho is the best player he’s ever had to play with and rates him higher than Maradona, Pele and Zidane.

The Las Palmas midfielder played at AC Milan with the Brazilian and believes he signed when he was past his best.

But despite his advanced age, Boateng insisted Ronaldinho still had so much quality it placed him above other legends of the sport.

“Who’s the best player I’ve ever played with? Ronaldinho no doubt,” he told Fox Sports.

“When he arrived at Milan he had no great desire or was tired and was no longer the Dinho of before. But what he wanted was for people to see that he was the best player in the world. More than Zidane, Pele and Maradona.

“He wanted to hit the crossbar three times and did it. We wondered how it was possible there was so much talent in one body. It was unbelievable.”

Lopetegui: We Love Costa The Way He Is

Featured Image

Spain coach Julen Lopetegui has defended Diego Costa after the 1-1 draw against Italy, saying they must love who he is.

The Chelsea striker was substituted midway through the second half, as he was in danger of receiving a red card.

And while Lopetegui hopes Costa can change his behaviour for his own sake, he was adamant he must be accepted for the way he is.

“Players keep developing right until they retire. You can change in a positive way if you make the right decisions,” Lopetegui told El Larguero.

“Diego has a certain character. He is a fighter. But sometimes his reactions hurt his reputation.

“He will be able to iron out these things as he develops. He is aware of it and so are we. These things can cost him. It could be hurtful to him.

“But we must love Diego the way he is and try to understand him. Any small advantage can make the difference in a tight game.”

Aina Should Pick Nigeria Over England – Mikel

Featured Image

Mikel has asked for Ola Aina to switch allegiance to Nigeria from England, after he impressed with Chelsea.

The 19-year-old defender has been on the substitute bench a lot this season and plays for the youth ranks of England.

The teenager was born in London to Nigerian parents and has impressed Mikel enough for him to want to play alongside him.

“I keep asking him: ‘When are you going to come and play for Nigeria?’ and he jokes: ‘Whenever you come and invite me I will play!” Mikel told Goal. “I think it is something that we would have to discuss.

“If he wants to play, we would have to speak to the federation and make sure that he really wants to play for Nigeria. If he is ready, we can talk about, but in the few times we have talked about it, he hasn’t given me a very positive, decisive answer to take back to the FA.

“I need a positive answer for me to take the case forward to the FA. We will see what happens.”

Aina’s performances stood out to the midfielder during Chelsea’s pre-season tour of Austria and the United States, where the youngster made three starts and several substitute appearances to force his way into manager Antonio Conte’s plans.

“Aina is a very, very good player,” he added. “He has improved quite a lot after playing in a few friendly games and he played really, really well. I was quite impressed by his performances and it is only a matter of time before these kids break into the first team.”

The 29-year-old Mikel is expected to start against Zambia as Nigeria attempt to qualify for the World Cup in Russia after missing out on the African Cup of Nations, which will be played out this winter.

According to The Punch, the security operatives had stormed the residence to arrest the judge Justice Adeniyi Ademola.

It was also gathered that the state governor, Nyesom Wike, arrived the scene, only to be harassed by the operatives.

According to the spokesman for the governor, Mr. Simeon Nwakaudu, Wike was pushed around by the DSS and policemen.

He said:  “The illegal failed abduction was led by Mr. Tosin Ajayi, Rivers State Director of the Department of State Services and Rivers State Police Commissioner, Mr. Francis Odesanya.”

“The operatives of DSS reportedly rough-handled Governor Wike, pushing him around and injuring his hand. A few of the operatives cocked their rifles and threatened to shoot the Governor.

“They were irked by Governor Wike’s arrival at the scene shortly after the failed abduction process began. It was learnt that Governor Wike received security information on the illegal moves, minutes after the operation started.

“The security operatives blocked the entrance of the residence of the Federal High Court judge at about 1am on Saturday morning, claiming that they were acting on orders from above. As they dragged Governor Wike, they insisted that they must be allowed to leave with the judge.”

It was also learnt that the houses of two Justices of the Supreme Court – Justices Walter Onnoghen and Sylvester Ngwuta – as well as two judges of the Federal High Court, Justices Adeniyi Ademola and Nnamdi Dimgba, were invaded by the DSS for several hours overnight.

The raid occurred on Friday night into early Saturday morning as the operatives surrounded their houses before breaking in at 1am on Saturday.

After the raid, Justice Ademola was taken away at about 5am. Sources say the DSS operatives came with doubtful search warrants bearing incorrect names.

The DSS is yet to officially make any comment on why it invaded the houses of the judges as it is yet to have a spokesperson.

AC Milan Preparing Loan Bid For Chelsea Striker Michy Batshuayi

Featured Image

Milan are planning a January move for back-up Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, says Mediaset.

The Rossoneri are hoping to take advantage of the fact the Belgium international has only been a bit-part player under new Blues coach Antonio Conte so far this season, his first in west London.

Despite the excellent scoring ratio, Batshuayi played only 52 minutes of Premier League football and started just two EFL Cup games.

According to Mediaset Premium, Milan have approached Chelsea with the idea of taking him on loan in January.

This will allow him to have more regular playing time and help develop his form and fitness.

There is another option, which is that if the sale to a Chinese conglomerate has gone through by the mid-season transfer window, the Rossoneri could well attempt to buy Batshuayi outright.

Arsene Wenger Once Again Rules Himself Out Of England Managerial Job

Featured Image

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger appears to have ruled himself out of the running for the England job after saying he believes the role would be best filled by an English coach.

“It is very important [that the manager is an Englishman], I have always said that,” Wenger told beIN Sports.

“A country like England, with a huge football passion… and as well the structure of the national team [it] looks to me [that it] demands a guy from your own nation is the leader.”

“If you think that tomorrow you are the coach of France and you play against England, when the national anthem is played of England, you cannot sing it and you cannot sing as well the anthem of the team you are leading.

“It looks to me a bit strange, that is why I like what is logical…. I think it is better [to have an Englishman].”

England U21 boss Gareth Southgate has stepped up to take charge of the senior team for the next four games, although FA chief executive Martin Glenn says Wenger would be among the candidates who “perfectly” fit the criteria as the search begins for the permanent successor to Sam Allardyce.

Wenger, though, says he has yet to hear from anyone at the FA over the vacancy.

“There has been no contact,” he said. “There is nothing really to add. Personally I want England to do well.”

Borussia Dortmund To Allow Aubameyang Leave 

Featured Image

Dortmund have agreed to let Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave the club at the end of the season, reports Sport Bild.

Aubameyang is one of the Continent’s most feared strikers, having struck 87 times in 152 appearances for Dortmund.

He was linked with a move away from Signal Iduna Park in the summer – Real, Man City and PSG were touted as possible suitors – although he ended up staying put.

He could be on the move next year, though, as Sport Bild says the player and Dortmund have reached an agreement over his departure at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old has previously expressed his desire to join Madrid, but any move to the Bernabeu could be scuppered by the transfer ban that FIFA have imposed on the European champions.

Santi Cazorla Believes Arsene Wenger May Not Quit The Club

Featured Image

Santi Cazorla has told the Spanish media that Arsene Wenger has given no indication that he is planning to leave Arsenal.

“The boss has not indicated that this will be his last year, not at all,” Cazorla told Spanish broadcaster Cope on its This Is Football podcast.

“The truth is we do not have that feeling in the dressing room. He is fully focused on this season and I do not know what he is planning for the future.

“Today I do not rule him [out of] continuing another season, because he has not said he will leave.

“It is in his hands and he is the one who has to make the decision, but today I would say that he may continue.”

The Gunners are poised to have a say in the title race this season, having gone third in the table thanks to a controversial late winner at Burnley on Sunday.

“Many times we talked about what we have lacked to win the Premier League in recent seasons, because we have always had opportunities to fight for the title,” said Cazorla.

“Last season, when teams like Manchester United, Chelsea or Manchester City were not doing well, we had a chance to win, but due to our inconsistency we didn’t take it.

“We are aware of that and now we know that we have to be consistent. We have to win games like the one against Burnley, no matter how.

“Even with a controversial goal in the last minute it is okay, because those games can give you the title.

“We cannot drop points in certain matches because, at the end of the season, those points could cost us the Premier League title.”
