Gabriel Barbosa Linked With Leicester City Again 

Featured Image

Leicester City are monitoring developments at Inter Milan following reports Gabriel Barbosa is unhappy at the club.

The Leicester Mercury cites Italian sources that claim Barbosa is unhappy at a lack of playing time at the San Siro – he has played just 16 minutes of league football this season.

The Brazilian only moved to Inter in the summer, for a fee in the region of £25m. Chelsea have also been mentioned as potential suitors should he become available.

City were repeatedly linked with the 20-year-old during the summer, although Claudio Ranieri said it was agent talk.

“It is speculation,” he said in August. “For two months this Barbosa is wanted by all the world and in those two months no one buys Barbosa. I don’t understand, why?”

Inter have no plans to let Barbosa leave in January but he may force a move if his situation does not change.

Manchester United Had Doubts Over Signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Featured Image

Manchester United were put off signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan under Louis van Gaal due to concerns over his adaptability to the Premier League.

According to The Independent, Van Gaal and his coaching staff had reservations about the former Borussia Dortmund playmaker’s suitability, fearing a repeat of Shinji Kagawa’s difficulties at Old Trafford.

Mkhitaryan has struggled to adapt since moving in the summer, and was left out of the recent squads that faced Fenerbahce and Chelsea.

Mourinho is yet to explain his reluctance to hand the 27-year-old a chance to redeem himself following his poor performance against City, when his failure to close down defender Aleksandar Kolarov was cited as a key factor in Kevin De Bruyne’s opening goal for the visitors.

Despite impressing for Dortmund during the German club’s dramatic Europa League defeat against Liverpool at Anfield in April, key figures within the United coaching team under Van Gaal were wary of pursuing a move for Mkhitaryan.

Although Shinji Kagawa made a bright start at United after arriving from Dortmund in the summer of 2012, the Japanese midfielder struggled to sustain his early performances and found the physical demands of English football too great before being sold back to the German outfit two years later.

And Kagawa’s struggles led to fears that Mkhitaryan would suffer the same problems due to the perception that players signed from the Bundesliga are ill-equipped for the Premier League.

With players afforded more time and space in the more technical German league, those arriving from the Bundesliga are often taken aback by the greater physicality in England and requirement to tackle and win personal duels with an opposite number.

“We thank Gary for all the hard work he has put in and wish him all the best for the future.

“We need to identify a new manager who can have an immediate impact and deliver success in the long term.”

Orientation Camp Facilities Are Out Of Date And Dilapidated – NYSC DG

Featured Image

The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, on Tuesday lamented the state of oriental camps across the nation.

The DG spoke about the obsolete, dilapidated and grossly inadequate facilities at the camps in Calabar during the 2016 `Batch B’ Pre-orientation Workshop organised for stakeholders to plan for a successful orientation programme.

The DG said the Federal Government was providing funds for robust activities of the scheme in spite of the current financial challenges. “The NYSC scheme started with less than 2,700 corps members in 1973. Today, the scheme is now mobilising over 300,000 corps members annually. Presently, the facilities in most orientation camps are obsolete, dilapidated and grossly inadequate for the ever increasing corps population.”

“The panacea for this challenge is for all the three tiers of government to live up to its statutory roles in the operation of the scheme. As we commence this exercise, I urge all stakeholders, especially the traditional rulers, transport workers and security agencies to assist our prospective corps members safely to their places of posting and throughout the service year.’’ He said.

The Deputy Governor of Cross River State, Prof. Ivara Esu who was representing the Governor, Gov. Ben Ayade said the NYSC scheme was a platform to bring about the feeling of oneness and for national cohesion. Gov. Ayade through his Deputy also said he was pleased with the new curriculum of the NYSC which placed emphasis on skills development and cultural assimilation.

According to him, the state is diversifying its economy in the area of agriculture and he asked the NYSC management to post a large number of agriculture graduates to the state.

Gov. Ayade announced that the sum of N1million would be shared among the 14 best performing corps members in the 2015 Batch `B’ session in Cross River state.

Kevin De Bruyne To Miss Manchester Derby

Featured Image

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed midfielder Kevin De Bruyne will miss the side’s EFL clash against Manchester United.

The Belgian playmaker picked up a calf injury in City’s 1-1 draw against Southampton, and had to be taken off at half time.

“He had a knock on the leg and he cannot play,” Guardiola said, before casting doubt on De Bruyne’s participation in City’s matches over the coming week.

“Hopefully [he can face] West Brom and Barcelona [but] he’s a doubt even next weekend.”

Guardiola added that full back Pablo Zabaleta was also unavailable, with captain Vincent Kompany was a game day decision.

“Pablo, I think not [will not play against United],” the manager added. “Vincent, I think he can but I don’t know if he will.”

“A derby is a derby,” he said. “It’s always special and so we are going to play a game like a game.

Teachers Sent Abroad For Training Have Absconded – Jigawa Government

Featured Image

The Jigawa State Government has announced that some teachers said to have gone for in-service courses in universities across the world, have graduated but has since refused to report to their place of work.

This has caused the government to indefinitely suspend all in-service training courses and led them to create a special committee to find the teachers involved as well as find other teachers receiving salaries without showing up at work.  The government is reportedly furious that the teachers betrayed its trust by staying abroad instead of returning home to put their expertise to use.

The Head of Service for Jigawa state, Mohammed Inuwa Tahir, told journalists yesterday that some workers spent 14 to 15 years studying. “What kind of degree course does a worker spend 15 years studying and still collecting salaries. Our government will not condone laziness and unfair act by some workers who have the habit of completing their study and refusing to report back to their place of work.”

The officials said the screening committee was established to fish out absentees and ghost workers, contrary to some insinuations that it was set up to witch-hunt workers.

BREAKING: Senate Passes Motion To Reintroduce Toll Gates On Federal Roads

Featured Image

The senate has on Tuesday passed a motion seeking for the reintroduction of toll gates on federal roads in the country.

The motion was titled ‘Need for the Re-establishment of Toll Gates On Our Federal.’

The sponsor of the motion, Suleiman Nazif, a senator from Bauchi north, lamented the current state of roads in the country, saying they had become a “national shame and embarrassment”.

He said the re-establishment of toll‎ gates would solve “the nation’s generally dilapidated road networks”.

“Besides revenue generation, the presence of toll gates, which are normally managed by armed security agents, provides a level of safety for road users.”

Nazif, thereafter, called on the upper chamber to “constitute an ad-hoc committee to carefully study the toll-gate policy toget‎her with other relevant stakeholders on effective and efficient ways to carry out the policy aimed at producing a holistic package to generate adequate funds for road construction and maintenance, and the money realised should be judiciously utilised in order to restore confidence in the masses”.

After much deliberation on the motion, Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president, who presided over the session, called for a voice vote, and the senate voted positively for it.

Speaking to newsmen after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, Simon Lalong, Plateau state governor, commended Tallen for her decision.

He said: “Pauline is an astute politician from my state, and part of the issue we also raised was on some of the appointments that were made.”

“So, all the states that had complaints are going to put it in writing and the president promised he is going to look into it.”

With respect to Tallen’s decision to reject the appointment, Lalong said:

“Well, it is not only about her husband; I think is the dimension of plateau politics because I had already made complaints to Mr President that appointments should not be concentrated in one zone.

“And so, all these appointments came again from one zone, in that particular zone. So the complaints that are coming from our state is not about her own personal interest; it is the fact that two ambassadorial appointments are coming from the same zone.

“That is my zone. We had complained that the next appointment should go to the other zone, the central and the northern zone. And so when that appointment came, the kind of uproar that followed also necessitated an intervention.

“And I think as a matured politician she stepped down and sacrificed that for the people of Plateau. We are still working on a replacement for that. It is not a big issue but at times a little consultation would have solved that problem because these are issues in the interest of the state.

“You can’t have two appointments, very key appointments at that, coming from a particular zone that is already overloaded with appointments. All the federal appointments are from the southern zone, so it would not be fair. That is why we are approaching Mr. President to consider fairness and appoint people from those areas that do not have representation.”

West Brom To Make £4 Millon Bid For Leeds Defender Charlie Taylor

Featured Image

West Brom boss Tony Pulis is keen to sign Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor in January, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The Baggies head coach will reportedly bid £4m for the left-back, who has rejected a new deal at Elland Road.

West Brom made an offer for the 23 year-old in the summer after his written transfer request was rejected, while Burnley manager Sean Dyche also failed to sign him.

But Pulis is ready to return with a second bid for the former England U19 international after being given the green light for new signings by owner Guochuan Lai. Albion sent a senior member of their recruitment department to watch Taylor in Leeds’ game at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

Albion are still short of a genuine left-sided defender and Pulis has used right-back Allan Nyom to fill the position.

Pulis held talks with Lai and chairman John Williams last week as the club plot their strategy for the January window, with another striker thought to be a priority.

West Ham Considering €30 Million Mauro Icardi Bid 

Featured Image

West Ham are considering a 30 million euros bid for Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

Icardi recently extended his contract at the San Siro until 2021, but has fallen out with a section of the club’s supporters after insulting them in his autobiography.

The Argentine criticised the club’s fanatical fans in his autobiography Sempre Avanti, and the Inter faithful reacted by cheering his penalty miss against Cagliari last week.

With Simone Zaza struggling during his season-long loan from Juventus, and Andre Ayew and Andy Carroll both sidelined with injury, West Ham might dip into the transfer market for a striker this January.

Tuttosport now claims West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is weighing up a big-money offer for the controversial South American marksman.

Bilic spent a club-record £20.5 million on bringing in Ayew from Swansea in the summer, but the ex-Marseille forward suffered a thigh injury in August and is not due back for a couple of weeks.

It Is Impossible To Say Dasuki Stole $2.2 Billion – Jonathan

Featured Image

The immediate past President of Nigeria, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, on Monday stated that it was not possible for the National Security Adviser (NSA) during his administration, Sambo Dasuki, to have stolen $2.2 billion as claimed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Speaking at the famous Oxford Union, Oxford United Kingdom, on youth entrepreneurship, Jonathan argued that it was “not just possible” for Mr. Dasuki to have stolen $2.2 billion after his administration procured several equipment for the country’s military.

READ ALSO: Where Is Dasuki? Nigerian Gov’t Fails To Produce Ex-NSA At Resumed Trial

While responding to a question about the alleged missing arms procurement fund now referred to as Dasukigate by the country’s media, the ex-leader said:

“They said the National Security Adviser stole $2.2billion. I don’t believe somebody can just steal $2.2 billion. We bought warships, we bought aircraft, we bought lots of weapons for the army and so on and so forth and you are still saying 2.2 billion, so where did we get the money to buy all those things?”

He admitted that corruption was an issue during his administration but flayed at the current government for some of the allegations, which he classified as exaggerated.

“Yes, there were some issues; yes, there are still corruption issues; but some of it were blown, I’d say exaggerated, and they give a very bad impression about our nation. You cannot say the national security adviser stole $2.2billion. It is not just possible,” he said.

He added that: “One thing about the issue of corruption is that these matters are in court, let’s allow some of these processes to end. Lately some judges’ (homes) were also invaded. There are so many things involved and we have to follow up these matters to conclusion before we know the fact.

“I don’t want to be seen as a former president challenging what the sitting government is doing so I have decided to keep quiet for the court to look into them.”

Dasuki, who has been in detention since December 1, 2015, was arrested by the State Security Service for allegedly misappropriating $2.2 billion meant to purchase equipment for the Nigerian military in its battle against the terrorist Boko Haram group.

FG May Hike Fuel Price As NNPC Says ‘N145 Per Litre No Longer Sustainable’

The Federal Government of Nigeria may be forced to intervene as the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has finally admitted that the sale of petrol at the current market price of N145 per litre was unsustainable due to the prevailing exchange rate.

READ ALSO: Petrol Price Increase Looms As N145/litre Is No Longer Feasible

Speaking on Monday in Lagos at the 2016 Oil Trading and Logistics (OTL) Conference, the Group General Manager, Crude Oil Marketing Department of the NNPC, Mr. Mele Kyari, averred that with the current price of foreign exchange, it was no longer feasible selling petrol at N145 per litre.

Mr Kyari said marketers that are currently selling below N145/litre are doing so because they are not the importers of the fuel.

 He said: “We have a very difficult business environment. It is impossible today to import products at the current market price, at current fixed foreign exchange rate.

“There is no way today you can take products to retailers and sell at N145. It is not possible.

“If that is true and I believe that it is, because we all go to the market, why can’t we sell above N145? That is where legislation should come in.

“I also know today that it is impossible for this government to announce tomorrow that petrol is about N150.

“This government cannot sustain it. That is the truth. The people will not accept that figure.

“That is why suppliers are not importing. Today, we are in subsidy regime, absolutely.

“There is no way you bring product today and sell at N145 and get back your money and make profit.

“That is not possible. You can see some marketers saying that fuel is N138.

“It is because they did not import. Somebody has taken the heat off the price.

“Because we (NNPC) have taken the heat and you buy from us, you can afford to go to the market and then put a ridiculous price.

“It is not possible because they did not import it.”

Aide: Fani-Kayode ‘Slumps’ In EFCC Custody

Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Aviation Minister, slumped while in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Saturday, said his aide on Monday.

READ ALSO: EFCC Re-Arrests Femi Fani-Kayode

The alarm was raised in a statement on Monday night by his spokesman on Media, Jude Ndukwe.

 “But for the quick and professional intervention of the medical team in the EFCC medical facilities, the story could have been different, it could have been fatal!” he said.

“We must commend the medical staff at the Commission’s medical facility. They were prompt in their response, and very impressive in their care. It is very heartwarming to know that some professionals have not allowed the political witch hunt and persecution of political opponents and perceived enemies taint their professional calling. We hope this extends to all facets of the Nigerian society.”

Fani-Kayode had been re-arrested by detectives of the anti-graft agency outside the premises of the Federal High Court along Oyinkan Abayomi Drive, Ikoyi, Lagos last week Friday.

He was picked up after attending his trial over an alleged fraud of N4.9bn before Justice Muslim Hassan.

The charismatic ex-minister is standing trial for allegedly receiving illicit funds from former National Security Adviser – an allegation he vehemently denied, saying the Muhammadu Buhari administration is targeting him as part of a wider campaign to silence opposition politicians.

READ ALSO: ‘Why We Detained Fani-Kayode’s Wife And Baby’ – EFCC

Ndukwe also said Mr. Fani-Kayode’s health condition had been communicated to the EFCC, but lashed the commission for re-arresting him.

“It is therefore shocking that having known these facts, the EFCC still acted in a most unprofessional and crude way by re-arresting a man who has never been known to turn down their invitation even for once, who was since granted administrative bail by the same Commission after meeting the stringent conditions set by them; a man who is also supposed to be on bail as granted by the courts after fulfilling the conditions, and who even has his international passport still lodged with the Commission,” he said.

“Although Chief Femi Fani-Kayode was yet to complete the recovery therapy he was undergoing after spending the initial 67 grueling days in EFCC custody wherein he was also physically attacked by one of the Commission’s agents, in deference to the law and the Commission, he painfully but willingly cut short his therapy and medical checks to attend court proceedings.

“One would have thought that these were enough to convince EFCC that Fani-Kayode was very willing to face his persecutors in court. But rather than be humane in their conduct, EFCC hounded him for the umpteenth time on that fateful Friday and have since kept him in custody.”

Suge Knight Sues Dr. Dre For Attempted Murder, Wants 30% Of His Apple Deal

One time music executive Suge Knight has sued Dr. Dre for trying to kill him over his Beats By Dre deal with Apple.

According to Knight, he had a lifetime management deal with Dre, and was promised a 30% cut of his entertainment earnings.

He added that Apple didn’t want him to come with the Beats by Dre deal, so they tried to get him out of the picture by killing him.

Knight was shot 7 times in the abdomen during the BET Awards weekend in 2014. According to him, a man named T-Money was questioned by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept, and confessed that Dre hired him to kill Suge.

He is suing Dre alongside Apple and Universal, and reportedly wants his $300 million from Dre’s $1 billion Apple deal.

Mike Phelan : Hull City’s Confidence Is Crumbling 

Featured Image

Mike Phelan accepts confidence has crumbled in his Hull City ranks after a fifth consecutive defeat dragged the Tigers into the Premier League’s bottom three for the first time this season.

Since beginning the campaign with back-to-back wins, City have now taken just one point from the last seven games to rapidly slide down the table.

A 2-0 defeat at home to Stoke City on Saturday was the latest damaging set-back. Xherdan Shaqiri’s spectacular brace was enough to earn the Potters a first away win since March and a crowd of just 18,522 voiced their frustrations at the full-time whistle.

Phelan stood by a team selection that began with Will Keane playing as a lone front man but admitted his side are deep in a rut ahead of travelling to Bristol City in the EFL Cup tomorrow night.

“Defeats are hard to take. We have to put it into perspective, we are new at this level, really new,” he said.

“We have to take everything on the chin and that’s difficult. Confidence is, I think, a little bit low. We’re probably finding our feet a little bit. Maybe all of us have got carried away with the start we’ve had. Our reality has come about and we all have to understand that it’s going to be difficult. We find ourselves now up against it but there’s a long way to go.”

Kevin De Bruyne : I’ve Answered Jose Mourinho

Featured Image

Kevin De Bruyne believes his form for Man City has answered Jose Mourinho’s criticism that he was incapable of fighting for a first-team place.

De Bruyne made just two Premier League starts for Chelsea before leaving for Wolfsburg, and his former Blues boss Mourinho questioned his ability to compete for a starting spot.

“I couldn’t say anything before as I wasn’t playing,’ De Bruyne told the Daily Mail. “If he says something to the press they are going to believe it because at that moment it was the only thing they had to listen to — the only evidence there was.

“But I don’t think I am like he said. I always want to play. I have played hundreds of times in my career and I am only 25. So I think I have answered it quite well.”

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish believes goalkeeper Steve Mandanda is the “signing of the summer”.

Speaking to the Croydon Advertiser, Parish said: “He allows us to play the way we are playing – he is a football goalkeeper.

“Maybe he wasn’t ready before and he was an icon at Marseille, but we picked our moment and there was a lot of hard work that went into it.”

“We got good ones in first – the Dwight Gayle and Andros Townsend deals were good for both really.

“Mandanda was good and then James Tomkins was one that Alan Pardew definitely wanted to do.”

Arsenal scouts are flying out to Italy shortly to watch Juventus talent Moise Kean, according to Calciomercato.

The 16-year-old midfielder, who was born in 2000, has been tipped to make his Serie A debut against Sampdoria tomorrow.

Man City and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the Italy youth international.

It’s reported the Gunners will have representatives at Juve’s clash with Sampdoria on Tuesday, as well as the showdown with title rivals Napoli on Saturday.

Scouts were also said to have been at the San Siro for the Bianconeri’s battle with AC Milan last Saturday, with Kean on the fringes of the first team.

Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri has hinted recently that Kean isn’t too far off making his bow for the first team:

Even so, according to the report, the forward is someone Arsenal have been following for a while, having tracked his progress in the under-15s and under-17s with Juve already. The Italian champions are said to be intent on getting Kean tied down to an extended contract, with agent Mino Raiola handling negotiations.
