The winner was chosen by fans from across the world.

While speaking to BBC Sport, Mahrez said:

“It means a lot, it’s something big for African players so I am very happy, I am very proud.

“It’s always good to receive awards and for African players it’s a huge honour. To all the fans, thank you very much.”

“Also I want to thank the Algeria fans and dedicate this to them as well and for my family.

“I just have to carry on and keep going with my football and see what I can do.”

Also speaking, Leicester manager Claudio Ranieiri, who was in attendance as Mahrez received his award, paid tribute to the winger.

He said: “I want to see him continue as a fantastic player,” the Italian told BBC Sport. ” It’s very important for us, for the team. He is improving every day.

“I don’t speak about his quality. I speak about his sacrifice, he has fought for the team because it’s very important for us to be together.”

The award comes as an icing to the cake for the Algerian who had already won the English Premier League title and was voted Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year.

Southampton Manager Claude Puel Discusses Impact Of Charlie Austin’s Shoulder Injury 

Featured Image

Claude Puel will assess his options in January following the news that Southampton striker Charlie Austin faces three to four months out with a shoulder injury.

The striker’s extended absence will be a major blow for Southampton given he has scored nine goals already this season and six of their 14 in the Premier League.

“I think it’s important for the moment to stay with a good concentration about our game until the end of the year, and after we will see this with calm in January,” he said.

“We have a striker, we have an offensive player, it’s important to give them confidence and I like these players and it’s important they play with all the confidence of the team and the staff.

“We will see after in January, but the most important is to consider and to respect all the players in my squad.”

One source of attacking inspiration could be Sofiane Boufal, whose stunning strike from 25 yards was enough to seal all three points against Boro.

Southampton signed Boufal in a club-record deal worth £21million in the summer but he has taken time to settle after arriving injured from Lille.

Marouane Fellaini Left Heartbroken After Being Booed By Manchester United Fans 

Featured Image

Manchester United’s players have been left angry at the obvious booing of Marouane Fellaini on Sunday.

Fellaini is thought to have been consoled in the Old Trafford dressing room after thousands of supporters were heard jeering his introduction as a late substitute during the 1-0 win over Tottenham.

Dissenting voices could be heard as Fellaini warmed up along the touchline.

His reception may have been due to the penalty he conceded at Everton last week and which allowed Ronald Koeman’s side to draw 1-1 on the previous Sunday. Fellaini then had also come on towards the end of the contest.

Phil Jones revealed the United squad were not happy with his treatment. The defender sighed and said: ‘It is disappointing but he is a strong boy. He is mentally strong to cope with that don’t worry.

‘We know what he is good at and he has to carry on. That’s what he is there to do. He does a good job for us. He has to put it aside.’

PSG’s Marquinhos Wants To Remain At Club Despite Barcelona Interest

Featured Image

Barcelona and Bayern target Marquinhos wants to sign a new contract at PSG.

The Brazilian, 22, has established himself as a key-first team player at PSG in the wake of David Luiz’s return to Chelsea.

Both Barca and Bayern have been linked with a move for the former Roma man, who is happy with life in the French capital.

“I would like to stay here. This is my fourth year at PSG, I have adapted to life here and I speak French,” he is quoted as saying in AS.

“In addition, my family feels good in Paris. Things are going well and I would love to stay here, I hope to sign a [contract] renewal. It does not just depend on me, but also on whether my performances are good.”

PSG have endured a difficult start to the 2016-17 campaign and are four points behind Ligue 1 leaders Monaco, but Marquinhos is confident they will soon be back to their usual best.

“It is hard to explain this difficult spell,” he added.

“You always have to win at PSG. A draw is already regarded as a bad result.

“But PSG are capable of doing anything. We are aware of our abilities and we are confident the best is yet to come. We are working to get out of this situation. Everything will soon be forgotten.”

Porto’s Yacine Brahimi Attracting Interest From Top European Clubs 

Featured Image

Arsenal, Man City, Man Utd and West Ham are keeping close tabs on Porto winger Yacine Brahimi, according to reports in A Bola.

However, the Premier League quartet will have to compete with the likes of Juventus, Napoli, Milan, Monaco, Marseille, Atletico and Sevilla for the Algeria international’s signature.

Brahimi is unlikely to come cheap, though, as he is tied to a contract at Porto until 2019 and has a €60 million (£50.5m) release clause

11 clubs have had the Algeria midfielder scouted in recent Champions League outings, including a matchday six meeting with Leicester.

Arsene Wenger Confirms He Wants Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain To Remain At Arsenal 

Featured Image

Arsenal boss Arene Wenger has confirmed he wants midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to stay at the Emirates.

Arsenal are yet to open talks over a new contract with the 23-year-old, who has 18 months to run on his current deal at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal are locked in negotiations to extend the deals for Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil who have similar terms remaining on their existing deals, but Wenger is adamant Oxlade-Chamberlain is integral to his plans as well

‘I want Oxlade-Chamberlain to stay at the club,’ said Wenger, speaking before overseeing his side’s training session ahead of Tuesday night’s trip to Everton.

‘I bought him at a very young age, I think he’s developing well. This season he’s making steps, moving forward.

‘When you’ve invested so much time and work in a player, and the player loves it here and is integrated in the qualities we want him to have….. overall, I want him to stay.’

Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Arsenal from Southampton in 2011 and has won 24 England caps since his 2012 international debut.

‘I believe that first Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s career, like Theo Walcott’s career, has been stopped many times by injuries,’ said Wenger.

He has had many, many setbacks, and I think it’s the first season where he’s had a consistency of presence.

‘They play in positions where maybe the physical demands are higher than any other positions. On the flanks today you need to come up and down, you need to defend as well as being dangerous going forward.

‘So you need to find the level of a good balance, and it demands a little bit of experience.

‘Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is much more efficient going forward now, he can provide, he provided a good final ball for Ozil on Saturday. And he can score goals himself, and that’s what you want from him.

‘We are a squad of 25 people. It’s the position where the physical demands are the most important. That’s subject to more changes than other positions, changes are more frequent and more normal.’

Juventus Closing In On €6 million Axel Witsel Transfer 

Featured Image

Juventus are set to sign Zenit midfielder Axel Witsel in the January transfer window for €6m, reports La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Serie A champions tried to land the Belgian last summer, only for Zenit to pull out of the deal at the last minute.

However, with the 27-year-old’s contract at Zenit expiring this summer, the Russian club would rather offload him for a nominal fee in the new year than lose him for nothing at the end of the season.

Witsel is Juventus’ January priority target given that he’s not only a very cheap reinforcement and that he can play the Champions League from February.

How To Start Your Own Church And Make Lots Of Money!

How To Start Your Own Church And Make Lots Of Money! – Tony Ogunlowo

It’s all the rage now; every Tom, Dick and Harry is becoming a pastor, setting up their own churches and making lots of money, so why not you?

The late L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the controversial church of Scientology, famously once said that ‘if you want to get rich, start a religion!’.

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

You don’t need any formal education even though a grasp of the English language and the ability to read the Bible will be an advantage. You don’t need a ‘calling’ from God or have to endure years of studying in a seminary or university. You can pick up a certificate online that will enable you to call yourself a ‘pastor’, ‘bishop’ or ‘prophet’ for next to nothing from the very many fake Bible colleges or universities.

You don’t even need to prepare your own sermons – there are online Christian organisations that will send you a ready-made sermon, every day for free, if you register your email address with them.

But the one thing you will need is to be a powerful orator – you must be able to talk in a commanding and hypnotizing voice that will make people believe anything you tell them.

Next you need premises. Most pastors start off in their living rooms, boys quarters or room & parlour and move to bigger premises later on.

For a congregation start off with friends and family and get them to spread the word. If you can afford it you can ‘rent’ parishioners to give the impression a lot of people are attending your church.

Now most people who attend ‘end-time’ churches are not there to listen to sermons they want to see miracle healings, listen to prophecies and be cured of all their worldy problems.

To do this most pastors employ simple tricks of deception, like magicians and illusionists on TV – hiring people to pretend they are lame, blind or ill so they can ‘miraculously heal’ them.( – be careful here – a ‘bishop’ recently got a man to lie in a coffin and pretend to be dead so he could bring him back to life. Unfortunately the man actually died and the ‘bishop’ was unable to resurrect him!). You can get an electrical engineer to build a device that will project holographic images of angels onto a wall giving the impression ‘angels’ are in your church just like ‘Prophet’ Shepherd Bushiri does.

Or alternatively you can obtain ‘power’ from questionable sources such as witches, witch-doctors and other agents of Darkness to enable you to perform ‘miracles’. People are gullible and once they see or hear about the ‘miracles’ performed in your church they will flock in and then will be the time to start charging them. Start with the mandatory 10% tithe as your primary income earner.

To make sure nobody skips their tithe because of recession or other mitigating factors get them to pay with debit card or bank payment app. This way the bank will take out the money automatically every month and pay it to you – and saving you a lot of hassle!

For your secondary income, which can also be multi-streams, you start by charging for counselling, ‘special’ prayers , anointing oil and water and whatever else you can think of!(Recently a Zimbabwean pastor has been selling ‘anointed’ cucumbers to his congregation and apparently the ladies were very excited – excuse the pun!).

But there’s more money to be made from a YouTube channel and publishing books.

To set-up a YouTube channel is easy, you don’t need to be a rocket scientist or a graduate. Just get somebody ( preferably a teenager with at least a working knowledge of iPhone 7) to video your services, upload it, get everybody to subscribe to your channel and watch your videos and Google will pay you, in dollars, at the end of every month.

The next best money-spinner is book publishing. Don’t worry if you can’t write a book because there are lots of unemployed English and media studies graduates out there who’ll ghost write for you for a fee. Just be sure to put a fancy title on it like ‘How to Pray for Money’ or ‘Make Angels Obey You’ and YOUR name as the author and get your congregation to buy it!

When the money starts pouring in from all your ventures the time will be ripe to start diversifying into schools, real-estate and other businesses.

If you keep it up, you might be able to afford a Bentley and a private jet in a couple of years – and a First Class ticket to Hell!

Gov Emmanuel Escapes Death As Over 200 Worshipers Die In Akwa Ibom Church Collapse

Featured Image

Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State narrowly escaped death on Saturday after the building of Reigners’ Bible Church collapsed during service – killing no less than 200 persons.

The incident, it was learnt, occurred along Uyo Village Road, Uyo, the state capital.

The Punch gathered that the governor was in the church attending the ordination of the church’s Presiding Pastor, Bishop Elect Akan Weeks, when the building yielded few minutes before offering period.

Sources said it took the efforts of the governor’s security officers to whisk him away to safety with the governor sustaining a minor injury.

Ubong Mboho, an evangelist, who managed to escape the collapse unhurt, told Premium Times that he witnessed the governor’s aide sacrifice his life to save the governor.

“He (the governor’s aide) was standing close to the governor. I saw him push the governor away from danger when the building started falling,” said Mr. Mboho.

This is just as the Chief Medical Director of the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital, Prof. Etete Peters, said that about 200 persons were brought to the hospital dead.

He said: “We only lost one person in the hospital except those that were brought dead. In circumstances like this, we have been overwhelmed. We need help from government.”

“Many victims are in private hospitals and mortuaries scattered all over Uyo metropolis; we can’t really tell how many people have died so far. We have over 200 persons in the mortuaries. We do not have space, as people are still being brought in.

“We have done our best to revive some victims. Right now, we have over 50 cases we are attending to. This is the first time we are witnessing such an incident.”

Also speaking, Uduak Effiong, a survivor, gave an estimated death toll of 300.

The survivor said: “I saw over 100 dead bodies. These were the ones close to me.”

“From my estimation, more than 300 people might have died as people came from other churches in all parts of the state, including government-sponsored praised singers with uniforms to attend the programme. For some of us that escaped, we only did by the special grace of God.”

Mr Benjamin, in the statement, said that the meeting would determine the number of centres to be used for the 2017 all CBT Unified Tertiary Matriculation Board exercise.

The statement added: “These are centres that must have a minimum of 250 and above terminals (computers).

Mr Benjamin, in the statement, said that the meeting would determine the number of centres to be used for the 2017 all CBT Unified Tertiary Matriculation Board exercise.

The statement added: “These are centres that must have a minimum of 250 and above terminals (computers).

“We will not hesitate to disqualify any centre that falls short of the requirements.’’

“We will equally not compromise on the selection of these centres as they will fully be responsible for our registration and examinations and other related responsibilities that they will be saddled with from time to time as we introduce new measures.’’
