Gunmen Kill Policemen In Imo State

Featured Image

Two days ago, two policemen were killed in the state and now gunmen have struck again killing three policemen in Imo state.

The three policemen were killed while on duty and the gunmen took away four of the rifles belonging to the police team. The incident occurred in Atta, Ikeduru Local Government Area of the state on the Owerri-Okigwe Expressway.

A source told reporters that the policemen were attacked immediately they arrived the area, as three of them were killed. “The gunmen must have laid in ambush for the policemen at the spot because immediately they arrived the area, the men began shooting at them. Three of them lost their lives, while four guns were taken away,” he said.

However, when the State Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Enwerem was contacted, he said only one inspector lost his life during the attack.

Enwerem, who declined to comment on whether the policemen’s rifles were taken away by the gunmen, said the state command was working to find out the reason for the attack and also to apprehend the culprits.

Mane: Liverpool Will Beat Manchester United

Featured Image

Sadio Mane is confident in Liverpool’s recent form, so much so, he has tagged them winners of the upcoming encounter against Manchester United.

Both teams will play each other for the first time this season, with Liverpool playing host to the Red Devils.

But Mane is confident of increasing that margin by helping the Reds to a sixth consecutive victory in all competitions.

“We are going to beat Manchester United,” Mane told the Daily Telegraph.

He added: “Of course [I think that]. We all believe it. We are going to make it.”

Mane revealed that he did not regret ignoring interest from the likes of United in the summer of 2015 before deciding to leave Southampton for Liverpool a year later.

“In honesty, there were some clubs interested at that time but I never made any choices then,” he explained.

“I did not say I thought of any club and I wanted to play there. That kind of interest gave me a lot confidence on the pitch and made me believe in myself, but I knew this was because of my hard work and I was in a good way.

“Ronald Koeman was not happy with all the rumours because he wanted me to stay, but it was not too complicated because for me, also, it was not time to go.

“When I spoke to him I told him, ‘No problem, I will stay’. It was my decision. I wanted to stay at Southampton.

“I was patient because I remember after the first year [in England] I knew it was better to focus on Southampton. In my head I thought I would be there a couple more years and prove something.

“I was convinced I still had to prove something, improve more and learn more before I moved to a bigger club. But then I knew when the right time was for me.

“The extra year helped me get better, and it is important for every player to go step by step.

“It was only when Liverpool came in that I never had a second thought and knew I wanted to join. It was different because then was the right moment for me.

“I finally came to Liverpool and I was happy with that, and now I’m happy I am playing against Manchester United.”

Haye: I Need Just One Punch To KO Bellew

Featured Image

Former world heavyweight champion, David Haye is confident he can penetrate Tony Bellew’s defence, which he has described as leaky.

WBC Cruiserweight champion Bellew challenged the heavyweight after defending his title, saying he has a score to settle with him.

Haye has studied Bellew and is confident he can destroy the boxer with just one punch.

Haye told Sky Sports: “Bellew has dynamite in his fists but would that work on me? I don’t think so.

“He was taking a few big shots in the process, his defence was leaky. Against me, that’d take one shot.

“I’ve been a heavyweight for eight or nine years. If he wants to come up, it’s an easy night’s work.

“I’ll probably knock him out with a jab.”

Bellew had earlier said: “The last two guys you fought are working on nightclub doors, or they’re putting the bins out.

“With ten ounce gloves on, I’ll put you and your pathetic haircut to sleep.”

Haye, a former WBA heavyweight champion, ended a four-and-a-half year hiatus from the ring this year and is next scheduled to box on December 10.

Aston Villa To Make Loan Bid For Middlesbrough Striker Jordan Rhodes

Featured Image

​Aston Villa are keen to sign Jordan Rhodes on loan from Middlesbrough, according to The Sun.

New boss Steve Bruce is said to be working on a January deal for Rhodes which would see Boro receive a bonus if the Villans gain promotion, as the former Hull City manager looks to mould the Villa squad.

The 26-year-old striker signed for Middlesbrough in the last January transfer window but has struggled to adjust to life in the North East, making only two starts for Aitor Karanka’s side since their promotion to the top tier.

It is also claimed Villa want to acquire the services of Rhode’s uncle, Middlesbrough assistant manager Steve Agnew.

Agnew, however, is said to be happy working under Karanka and not interested in completing a reunion with Bruce, after the pair worked together at Hull.

Luis Enrique’s side are said to be preparing to approach their La Liga rivals regarding the availability of the 22-year-old Portugal international, with Diego Simeone’s Atletico also among the interested parties.

Cancelo appeared in all seven of Valencia’s La Liga matches at the start of the 2016-17 campaign. Meanwhile, the defender has scored three times in three caps for the Portuguese national team.

Tottenham are keen to sign Lazio full-back Jordan Lukaku in January, according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are reportedly considering an 11 million euros offer for the Belgium international, who is the brother of Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

Last month we reported  that London rivals Chelsea were  lining up a £20m for Davies, who joined Spurs from Swansea City back in the summer of 2014 as Mauricio Pochettino’s first signing .. 

Now,  Spurs are lining up left backs in case Davies is sold, with some ‘doubts about his suitablity’ as Rose’s backup, prompting interest in Lazio’s Jordan Lukaku.

Left back Lukaku – the younger brother of Everton striker Romelu Lukaku – left Oostende in his native Belgium for Lazio over the summer, and his impressive displays for the Italian side appear to be triggering interest.

The 22-year-old – who featured for Belgium at Euro 2016 alongside Tottenham stars Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele – is a pacey, attack-minded left back who could offer some similar qualities to England ace Rose.

Sunderland To Offer Manchester City And Everton Target Jordan Pickford New Contract

Sunderland are looking to warn off interest in Jordan Pickford by offering the young goalkeeper an improved contract, according to the Sunday People.

The 22-year-old has stepped into a starting role this season and has reportedly caught the eye at Man City, who let Joe Hart leave on loan and signed Claudio Bravo to replace him.

Also The Mirror report Pickford, who is under contract until 2020, is comfortable with the ball at his feet and that makes him an ideal target for Man City boss Pep Guardiola.

But David Moyes is equally aware that Pickford needs to add to his experience and will benefit by playing for the Wearsiders rather than adding to the squad numbers at the Etihad.
