Tammy Abraham Returns To Chelsea For Treatment On Thigh Injury

Featured Image

On-loan Bristol City striker Tammy Abraham has returned to parent club Chelsea to undergo treatment on a thigh injury.

The 19-year-old, who has scored 21 goals in 38 appearances for the Championship side this term, sustained the injury in the defeat at Leeds last Tuesday.

Abraham had immediately returned to the Blues for scans and City boss Lee Johnson has confirmed that is where he will remain for the immediate future.

“He’ll be out for two or three weeks,” Johnson said. “Chelsea are taking care of Tammy at the moment. We’ll get him back here in a week to ten days.”

“It gives an opportunity to other players in the squad to show their talents and they will I’m sure.”

Chelsea don’t have the best track record of handing opportunities to young players, but Conte suggested he could be ready to give Abraham a chance earlier this season.

‘Abraham is another young player, he’s the future for Chelsea, for sure. Abraham has a great potential. I think the academy is working very well,’ the Italian said in October.

Carlos Tevez representative has denied reports which claim that the Argentine forward wants to leave Shanghai Shenhua.

The former Manchester United and Manchester City forward reportedly became the world’s highest-paid player when he left Boca Juniors to join Shanghai Shenhua in December.

However, reports have suggested that adaptation problems and doubts over the future of coach Gus Poyet have prompted Tevez to look for a way out of China.

These suggestions have been dismissed by his agent Adrian Ruocco, who told TN: “Tevez will not return from China, I do not know where that has come from.”

Featured Image

Saido Berahino has declared himself ready to make his first start for Stoke City when they travel to Tottenham on Sunday.

Berahino, who joined the Potters from West Brom in January, has made just two substitute appearances so far.

The 23-year-old, who has not scored a league goal for nearly a year, said he had been putting in extra work in training to be ready for the trip to White Hart Lane.

“I have been doing a lot of work with the group but also a lot, every day, away from them too, to make sure I am getting my levels right back up to where we want them to be,” Berahino told the club’s website.

“The extra work has finished now because I am in good condition, and now it is just about maintaining what I have and improving on that with minutes in the Premier League.

“I have already been used in a couple of games, which has been fantastic for me, but the next step is to try and start a game and then come through that too, hopefully having made a good impact.”

UNICEF: “Boko Haram Recruited 2000 Child Soldiers In 2016”

Featured Image

The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has said that notorious terror group Boko Haram recruited about 2,000 child soldiers in 2016 and used them in combat.

Speaking on Tuesday while global leaders gather in Paris on the anniversary of the Paris Commitments to end the use of children in conflict, UNICEF Executive Director, Anthony Lake, said estimates indicated that tens of thousands under the age of 18 were being used in conflicts worldwide.

Boko Haram Kills 3 During Attack On Borno Community

According to the UNICEF chief, exact data on the number of children used and recruited in armed conflict is difficult to ascertain because of the unlawful nature of child recruitment.

“For instance, since 2013 an estimated 17,000 children have been recruited in South Sudan and up to 10,000 have been recruited in the Central African Republic (CAR).

“Similarly, nearly 2,000 children were recruited by Boko Haram, in Nigeria and neighbouring countries, last year alone, and there have been nearly 1,500 cases of child recruitment in Yemen since the conflict escalated in March 2015.

“We cannot give up the fight to end child recruitment,” the UNICEF chief said.

According to him, even though over the past 10 years, more than 65,000 children have been released from armed forces and armed groups, tens of thousands of boys and girls under the age of 18 continue to be used in conflicts around the world.

“It is not only about looking back at what has been accomplished – but looking forward to the work that remains to be done to support the children of war,” he said.

Adopted 10 years ago, the Paris Commitments, together with the Paris Principles and Guidelines, lay out guidance for protecting children from recruitment and use by armed forces or armed groups.

The Paris Agreement also assists the release of child soldiers and their reintegration, with other vulnerable children affected by armed conflict in their communities.

“There has also been progress: since it was adopted, the number of countries endorsing the Paris commitments has nearly doubled from 58 countries in 2007 to 105 at present, signalling an increasing global commitment to end the use of children in conflict.

“Globally, more than 65,000 children have been released from armed forces and armed groups, including 20,000 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

“Nearly 9,000 in the Central African Republic; and over 1,600 children in Chad. But more needs to be done,” the UNICEF chief said.

Tottenham Keen To Make £15 Million Bid For Hull City Defender Harry Maguire

Featured Image
Tottenham have joined Everton and Southampton in the race to sign £15m-rated Hull defender Harry Maguire, according to the Daily Star.
 Both Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen have spent time injured this season while doubts remain about the future of Kevin Wimmer.That has prompted Mauricio Pochettino to scour the market for a defender, and Maguire fits the bill because he can play in a back four or a back three.

The Tigers obviously do not want to lose the player, but the report claims any bid would have to meet the club’s £15m valuation.

Maguire has hit top form of late, seizing his chance in Marco Silva’s first-team to become almost undroppable

Jose Mourinho Refuses To Rule Out Wayne Rooney’s Move To China

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho has refused to guarantee that Wayne Rooney will be at Manchester United at the end of the season.

Rooney has been linked with a big-money move to China and speaking ahead of United’s Europa League clash with St Etienne, Mourinho said: “You’ll have to ask him.

“I cannot guarantee that I’m here next week, how can I guarantee that a player is here next season? What I can guarantee is that, if one day Wayne leaves the club, it is not because I want him to leave the club. I would never push a legend of this club to another destiny. You have to ask him if he sees himself staying in the club for the rest of his career or sees himself moving.

 “It is not a question for me because I am happy to have him. You have to ask him, not me. I was very open with you in the answer. I don’t want him to leave.”

The Chinese transfer window closes next Tuesday.

Sutton United Goalkeeper Wayne Shaw Resigns After Pie-eating Incident

Featured Image

Wayne Shaw resigns as reserve goalkeeper at Sutton United as FA investigate pie-eating incident during Arsenal FA Cup tie.

Wayne Shaw’s pie-eating stunt led to an investigation by the Football Association and the Gambling Commission for potentially breaching betting rules during the FA Cup tie against Arsenal.

The National League club’s manager Paul Doswell revealed this afternoon Shaw had been asked to hand in his resignation, a move he has agreed to.

“This decision was taken at board level,” he told Sky News. “We felt we had to take very strong actions. The chairman spoke to him this afternoon and Wayne offered his resignation.”

“I’m devastated, the chairman is devastated. I have spoken to Wayne and the guy is in tears, crying down the phone. It is a very sad situation.”

Wayne Shaw became something of an internet sensation when he was pictured eating a pie in the 83rd minute of the game on Monday evening which was shown live on television. However before the tie a bookmaker had offered odds of 8-1 that Shaw would eat a pie on camera during the match and adverts were carried in a newspaper sponsoring non-league Sutton.

An FA spokesperson confirmed: “We are investigating to establish whether there has been any breach of The FA rules relating to betting.”

The Gambling Commission, which licenses and regulates gambling in Britain, says it is also looking into whether there was any “irregularity in the betting market and establishing whether the operator has met its licence requirement to conduct its business with integrity”. It warned operators (betting companies) in June last year about the integrity of taking bets on novelty markets.

“Integrity in sport is not a joke and we have opened an investigation to establish exactly what happened,” said enforcement and intelligence director Richard Watson.

Sun Bets, who sponsored Sutton for the fifth-round tie, tweeted that it had paid out a “five-figure sum” on the bet while Shaw admitted he was told of the betting promotion before the game.

“I thought I would give them a bit of banter and let’s do it,” he added. “All the subs were on and we were 2-0 down…It was just a bit of banter for them. It is something to make the occasion as well and you can look back and say it was part of it and we got our ticket money back.”

Jose Mourinho Has A ‘Serious’ Warning For Luke Shaw

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho has told Luke Shaw to raise his game unless he wants to remain Manchester United’s fourth-choice left-back.

Having missed the majority of last season following a horrific double leg break, the 21-year-old’s comeback campaign has been disrupted by niggles and an inability to win over his manager.

Despite being fit since mid-January, Shaw has only appeared in the FA Cup fourth round win against Wigan – and was left out of the next four squads. He’s since been omitted from the Europa League squad for the second leg against at St Etienne.

“He [Shaw] stayed behind in Manchester because I am playing with Daley Blind, with Marcos Rojo, with Matteo Darmian and all of them are playing the way I like a full-back to play,” Mourinho said.

“Luke has to wait for his chance, he has to work better and better, knowing that I give nothing for free. In this moment, he is behind the others.”

‘When I give something to the players it is not cheap, it is expensive.

Anthony Martial: “I Love Manchester” -Dismisses Exit Rumors

Featured Image

Anthony Martial has dismissed talk of a Manchester United exit, saying he wants to stay at the club he loves “for as long as possible”.

Speculation has grown over the 21-year-old’s happiness this season, as he has struggled to recapture the form shown during his maiden Old Trafford campaign.

But he’s hoping for a fourth straight start against St Etienne in the second leg of United’s Europa League last-32 tie and, while facing the media, took the opportunity to declare himself content.

“I love Manchester, I love the club and I love the fans,” Martial said through a French interpreter.

“(The fans) give me a lot of joy and I really enjoy having them backing me. I try to be as good as possible to make them happy, to satisfy them, so what I just want is to stay as long as possible at this club.”

Matthaus: Gotze Should Join The CSL

Featured Image

Germany legend Lothar Matthaus says the next move that will make sense for Mario Gotze is to join the Chinese Super League.

Gotze won the world cup with Germany, scoring the winning goal in 2014, but he has not impressed with Bayern Munich and Dortmund.

Matthaus believes the forward lacks the attribute that’ll put him in the elite level, and believes he’ll gain from a move to the CSL.

“Honestly, even if it sounds a bit nasty, if it does not work for Gotze at Dortmund, he has to go to China. Gotze certainly does not want to make less money,” he told Sport Bild.

“He will not go to Schalke, he will not go to Leverkusen, Gladbach cannot afford to sign Gotze. Top clubs from abroad aren’t that interested anymore.

“If he does not get in the team at Dortmund, and has the same salary demands, then he will be off to China – but that would be a poor test for a 24-year-old.”

Gotze has only played 11 Bundesliga matches for Dortmund this term, frequently finding himself on the bench. He has scored only one goal and provided one assist.

Anthony Martial does not intend to leave Manchester United, despite rumours that keep linking him away, saying he loves the club.

The France youngster has started just 10 matches in the Premier League this season, despite starring in his debut season at Old Trafford.

But Martial is adamant he is going nowhere, saying he wants to repay the United fans for their backing.

“They give me a lot of joy and I really enjoy having them backing me. I try to be as good as possible to make them happy, to satisfy them.

“What I want is to stay at this club for as long as possible.”

And Martial has added that his disappointing form this term has been due to a lack of match action.

“[The form] is just because last year I played a lot, I had the possibility to play back-to-back games,” he said. “Now I enjoy playing and we have to wait.

Zidane: I Admire Isco

Featured Image

Zinedine Zidane has admitted to loving Real Madrid attacking midfielder, Isco, but has not said anything about asking him to stay at the club.

The Spain international assisted both goals in the 2-0 win over Espanyol, he would love to remain at Madrid, but wants more playing time still.

Addressing the media ahead of a league game away to Valencia on Wednesday, Zidane did not rebuke the 24-year-old for publicly making his case.

“I think it’s understandable and I have no problem with it,” he said.

“You ask him and he replies to those questions. But I’m sure that he’s fully focused. He’s a very good footballer, I regard him highly and he’s player that is part of… squad rotation.

“A player could play 25-26 games in a row and then not play. You could ask him and I’m sure he’d say he’s not happy.

“I want my players to be ready for when that chance arrives. We’ve seen it works. I’m going to keep doing this until the end of the season. I’m not going to change.”

Pressed on whether or not he had specifically asked Isco, whose deal expires in June 2018, to commit to the club, Zidane said: “Isco knows I love him, I love the way he plays. I consider him to be a great footballer.

“I have 23 very good players at my disposal. It’s tough. The players understand that. When you drop a player, somebody else takes his place. It’s nothing personal. I believe I have a good squad. All of my players can come in and do a good job.”

Bellew Working On Speed

Featured Image

Tony Bellew has a plan for his fight against David Haye and it is to be faster than his opponent, all he needs is to weigh in at 15 stones for the fight.

The WBC cruiserweight champion is going to be fighting as a heavyweight for the first time when he faces Haye on March 4.

“After training, I was 221lbs (15st 11lbs) – I will come in lighter on fight night, much lighter than 221lbs,” Bellew exclusively told Sky Sports ahead of facing Haye on March 4, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

“His advantage is speed – every single fight, against anyone he’s fought, he’s always quicker than them. So if I can get anywhere near his speed, he’s in for a shock.

“He will whinge, he will look for a way out – but, for the first four rounds, he’s as good as any heavyweight on the planet.

“The only guy in the heavyweight division that is quicker is Anthony Joshua. But Joshua is quicker with combination punches, he isn’t quicker with a single punch. Haye is the quickest single-punching heavyweight on the planet. With one shot, he’s lightning fast.

“But he’s lightning fast to other heavyweights. He isn’t quicker than some of the cruiserweights I’ve faced, so the speed isn’t going to be an issue for me. The judging of distance will be.

“How quick can he close the distance? I’m not facing the David Haye of six, seven years ago who was searching for a world title, and went to Paris [to defeat Jean-Marc Mormeck].

“I’m facing a David Haye who doesn’t want to fight anymore, who announced he would retire at 30, who isn’t fighting because he wants to, but because he has to – that’s a big difference.

“I guarantee he’s already got the date for his next fight but I’ll be the one who messes that up – I’m not just going to mess up his hair-cut, I’m going to mess up his face as well.”

Donald Glover And James Earl Jones To Voice Simba And Mufasa In The Lion King Reboot

Featured Image

Last year, It was announced that Disney were planning to recreate The Lion King and in September, they brought in Jon Favreau (who directed last year’s Jungle Book remake) to direct the live action remake.

The original 1994 animated movie is a beloved classic, following the life of a young Simba as he has to grow up after his father and king of the jungle Mufasa (voiced by James Earl Jones) was killed by his wicked uncle Scar. The multiple award winning movie quickly became a fan favorite and now it’s being brought back.

Director Jon Favreau took to twitter to announce the first two cast members,

Lion king

Donald Glover is about the same age as Matthew Broderick was when the original was released and like Broderick, we know Glover is capable of switching effortlessly between light comedy and weightier drama when needed as is evident in his FX show, Atlanta.

James Earl Jones as Mufasa is a perfect fit as well as he voiced the original movie. First, his signature voice in the original had that majestic and commanding yet kind and father-like feel that we have all come to attribute to Mufasa. Even though more than 20 years have passed, his voice still sounds magnificent and his abilities as an actor have not diminished.

Just like Favreau’s remake of The Jungle Book, the film will utilize CGI technology and green screen to transform the beloved 1994 animated movie into a live-action movie.

The Lion King joins a wave of live-action Disney films rebooted from the company’s legendary catalog, including The Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland, the upcoming Beauty & The Beast and the planned Little Mermaid remake.

We’re still waiting on Disney to give us a release date but just for fun, here’s the trailer for the original 1994 movie.

Doctors Recommend Bed Rest For President Buhari – Mr Femi Adesina

Featured Image

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, on Tuesday in Abuja said the results of President Muhammadu Buhari’s medical tests had suggested further rest.

Mr Adesina, said this while speaking with State House correspondents but didn’t state the period of time that the President’s rest would last.

“The President wants Nigerians to know that he appreciates their prayers; he appreciates their concerns and their goodwill. He has added that there is really no cause to worry.” He said.

“He is the one who owns the body and there is nobody who will know his body more than him and he says no cause to worry.”

“It makes sense to say that, maybe from the results of the tests, further rest had been recommended. The statement did not say how long the rest would last.

“I speak for somebody; I do not speak for myself. So it is what he tells me to say that I say and the statement transmitted to me is that the President needs to rest for some further time.”

Mr Adesina stated that he was not in the position to talk about the nature of the President’s illness.

“Don’t you know that the Hippocratic Oath even forbids a doctor from speaking about the condition of his patient except the patient authorises it? It is only the patient himself who can speak about what he is going through.”

“This is the person going through these series of tests and rest and he says no cause to worry, let us believe that.” He added

President Buhari on Tuesday reassured Nigerians of his health conditions, thanking them for their consistent prayers for his well-being. In a statement by Adesina, the president thanked millions of Nigerians who had been sending good wishes to him.

The President revealed that the results of the test conducted on him indicated that he needed a longer period of rest. The president had proceeded on a 10-day vacation and a routine medical check in the UK on Jan. 19. In a letter sent to both arms of the National Assembly, the president said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo would act as president pending his return.

However, the president could not make it back to the country on Feb. 6, and proceeded to send another letter to the Senate requesting extension of time to complete his medical check-up in London.

Lagos State Government To Start Construction Of Fourth Mainland Bridge This Year

Featured Image

According to State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Steve Ayorinde, the Lagos State Government has plans to begin construction of the 38km Fourth Mainland Bridge this year.

Mr Ayorinde, said this on Tuesday in Lagos, explaining that the government was committed to the proposed project. However, the commissioner did not mention a specific date or time of the year when the project would commence.

The construction of the bridge is accommodated in the state’s 2017 Budget with about N844bn earmarked for the construction of the bridge.

About 800 structures and shanties will be affected by the construction of the bridge to be carried out under a Build, Operate and Transfer arrangement.

The idea of the creation of the bridge first came up during former governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration, about 14 years ago and construction of the 4th mainland bridge will be coming 50 years after the state’s existence and 26 years after the delivery of the 3rd Mainland Bridge by the ex-military President Ibrahim Babangida.

In May 2015, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a consortium of firms and finance houses for the construction of the bridge. However, during its conception, the government had to stop several times as it was revealed that about 3,000 structures could be affected by the bridge’s right of way. To continue the construction, a new alignment design concept was produced to save about 2,200 houses from being destroyed.

The project, when completed, will give birth to the longest of all the bridges connecting Lagos Island to the Mainland as the bridge will pass through Lekki, Langbasa, and Baiyeku towns – on the Lagoon estuaries – to Itamaga, in Ikorodu.

The bridge will serve as a complement to the Eko, Carter and Third Mainland Bridges and help to reduce traffic.

The bridge is expected to have a four-lane dual carriageway.

‘Fake News Poses More Threat Than Boko Haram Insurgency, Militancy’ – Lai

Featured Image

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has lamented that the phenomenon of fake news, if drastic measures are not placed against it, poses more threat to the nation than Boko Haram insurgency and militancy.

The minister made this known on Tuesday in Abuja at the seventh edition of the National Security Seminar with the theme “Consolidating on the Gains of Counter Terrorism Operations in Nigeria’’.

According to him, the phenomenon of fake news propagated majorly by the social media “is so serious that it threatened to break the country rapidly even more than insurgency’’.

He added that to consolidate on the defeat of the Boko Haram insurgent, the armed forces should give special attention to its communication and information dissemination strategy.

He said: “We must pay adequate attention to communication strategy and have our people who will be very active also on the social media.

“It is a front that has been largely neglected which we must now pay special and adequate attention to.’’

According to him, fake news phenomenon is a situation where someone or some persons will fabricate stories capable of setting one group or religion against the other and send them out through the social media.

“Regrettably, fake news is circulated worldwide through the means of the social media and it travels faster.

“Only recently, we have to refute the fake news that Nigeria today is the most difficult place for Christians to live.

“There was also the fake report that the armed forces of Nigeria armed the Fulani herdsmen and instigate them to carry out attacks.

“All these news are unfounded, fake and have the capacity to set one religion or group against the other,’’ he said.

The minister said the most recent of such disinformation was the news of alleged killing of some members of a pro-Biafra group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Mr. Mohammed said that the allegation was false, malicious and intended to set the country on fire.

The seminar was jointly organised by the National Defence College of Nigeria, the Office of the National Security Adviser and the Alumni Association of National Defence College.

Suprise, Shock As Big Brother Cancels Nominations

Featured Image

This week’s nomination show took an unexpected turn when Big Brother canceled all the nominations by the housemates, saying he would decide who would be evicted come Sunday night.

The decision came after Big Brother exposed a plot between Kemen and Marvis in a video he played on screen to the housemates. A furious Big Brother sentenced Kemen and Marvis to the isolation booth and also, withdrew Bisola and Bally’s earned advantages. Meanwhile, Big Brother had earlier in the day issued a warning to fake housemates, Jon and Ese, after he screened their conspiracy and scolded them for breaking the rules.

The gloom in the house was palpable as the housemates are now at the mercy of Big Brother, who will not be revealing the identities of the housemates for possible eviction to them but will share the information with the voting public.

Interestingly, a look at the nomination results shows that fake housemates – Ese and Jon – had the highest number of nominations. Ese was nominated by Uriel, Marvis, Debie-rise, Bassey, Efe and Kemen; while Bally, Uriel, Debie-rise and Kemen nominated Jon. Perhaps the surprising twist was that Thin Tall Tony (TTT) did not have one single nomination and Uriel recorded her highest ever nomination nods. TBoss, TTT, Ese and Bisola put her up for possible eviction. However, these results will no longer hold, as Big Brother will make his selection for the week.

With viewers wondering what ‘Biggie’ could possibly be up to, the countdown to Sunday night’s eviction on 26 February has officially begun.

Hazard: Conte Has Brought Out The Best In Me

Featured Image

Eden Hazard says he is back to his very best for Chelsea and believes it is all thanks to the guidance of Antonio Conte.

The Belgium captain was part of a brilliant Chelsea squad that won the title in 2014-15, but, his performance levels along with a few other players reduced in the following season, leading to the sack of José Mourinho.

However, Chelsea look to be back to their PL winning best, as they lead the pack with eight points.

And the contribution of Belgium international Hazard has been a big reason for their march back to the top of the standings.

“Last season everyone knows I was not good enough,” he said.

“But you learn from your mistakes. I gave everything to come back and now I am in my level.

“So I started this season well – fit, with no injuries and it is better to play when you are ready. I want to enjoy being on the pitch. So this is the key.

“It is always a difficult to come back after a bad season, but the boss changed something and tried to give us more confidence.

“This is the best moment for me at this club since I’ve been here. I’m happy.”

Hazard was named Premier League Player of the Season and PFA Players’ Player of the Year in 2014-15.

Next up for Chelsea is a league match at home to Swansea City on Saturday.

Higuain : Juventus Has What It Takes To Win CL

Featured Image

Gonzalo Higuain still insists he made the right choice to leave Napoli for Juventus and believes they can win the UCL.

The Argentine is yet to win the competition, as he left Real Madrid before Ancelotti won the 10th UCL trophy for them.

However, he is confident of winning it with Juventus, but will have to overcome Porto in the last-16 first.

“We can win the Champions League, but we have to be calm,” Higuain told La Stampa ahead of the first leg at Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday.

“I know we’re a strong team and I know we can get to the end. So we have to start that journey away at Porto.”

Higuain incurred the wrath of Napoli’s passionate supporters by swapping the Partenopei for Turin, but the forward has no qualms about the merits of the switch.

“Playing with the best players makes you improve, it’s logical,” he said.

“Whoever you are, you can always learn.

“All you have to do is look at Gigi [Buffon], he’s won everything but he still trains like a kid. That’s true for Dani Alves and other team-mates too.

“It’s hunger that makes you win, even if you’ve done it before.

“I know I made the right choice, I don’t feel any pressure. In fact, it’s a privilege for me to think that they bought me while thinking about winning in Europe.”
