Tuchel: Bomb Attack Has Made Us Stronger

Featured Image

Thomas Tuchel insists the bomb attack on his team is now in the past and they’re now a stronger team.

Three explosions rocked the Dortmund team bus as they were heading for the Signal Iduna Park to play their first leg against Monaco. Marc Bartra was the only player to sustain an injury.

Tuchel’s men played the match a day later and lost 3-2 at home, but the manager is losing no hope of qualifying for the last four.

On the eve of the return leg, Tuchel said: “We’ve got this out of our system now and we’re more stable emotionally.

“All that happened last week has made us stronger. Now we have to play well and I’m convinced we can do that. We’re ready and focused.

“We know it will be very tough, but we have the energy and confidence we need to get a result.

“Our players are confident. We have a good mix between experienced and young players. We know what we need to do. We are here to win by two goals.”

Allegri Tells Juventus To Attack Against Barcelona

Featured Image

Massimiliano Allegri has charged Juventus not to sit back against Barcelona, but attack and look for the win.

Juventus are in total control of the quarterfinal match, holding a 3-0 lead from the first leg.

However, Allegri has warned his men that the only way to win is to attack against a side that overturned a 4-0 loss against PSG in the previous stage.

“The most important thing is that we forget the three goals in the first leg and play to win again,” Allegri stated at Tuesday’s media conference.

“We have huge respect for Barcelona and we know that we will need to play even better again to go through.

“Not a lot will have changed about Barcelona: they will still have the same weaknesses and strengths. We need to keep our heads and find a way to score at least once.

“We need to defend well and attack well. Simple.

“We must not get carried away by the occasion. If we keep our cool and play our own game, we will be OK.

“Juventus have grown gradually as a European power; we need to be at least in the last eight every season.”

“Juventus Won’t Collapse Like PSG”

Featured Image

Former Juventus manager Marcelo Lippi has backed the Italian club to come out on top against Barcelona, saying they are better than PSG.

Juventus hold a commanding 3-0 lead over Barcelona, after a fruitful first leg, with Dybala scoring a brace and Chiellini getting the last goal.

Barcelona lost 4-0 in the first leg against PSG, but came back at home, winning 6-1 at home to win 6-5 on aggregate.

Lippi, however, says Juve are unlikely to allow such a comeback to take place.

“Barca’s arsenal is unique but it’s only in the attacking sense,” he told La Stampa. “Juventus are the better team and if they can disconnect the front three as they managed to in the first leg, they have a great chance of winning the second leg.

“They have to play the same as they did in Turin, exploiting all their virtues, because they won’t be able to stop them.

“Barca will try in front of 90,000 spectators, and they did it well against PSG, but Juve are not PSG. I don’t imagine Juve will allow it to happen. But, in football, of course anything can happen.”

Iniesta: With Perfection, We Can Beat Juventus

Featured Image

Andres Iniesta believes it is possible to pull off another comeback, but Barcelona must be perfect to do so against Juventus.

Barcelona already came from 4-0 down to beat PSG 6-1 at home and progress to the quarterfinals 6-5 on aggregate.

Barcelona are in the same precarious situation again, having lost 3-0 to Juventus in the first leg.

“There are a lot of similarities compared to the game against PSG. We need to have the same attitude right from the first minute,” Iniesta stated at a news conference ahead of Wednesday’s second leg.

“It will be complicated to pull off another comeback, but I am sure it is possible. We have to play a perfect game. We have to create the maximum number of chances and score goals. We probably need our best game of the season.

“An early goal would be a boost, but we have to be patient. We cannot afford to lose patience if the goal does not come.

“I think Juventus have only conceded two or three goals this Champions League. But this does not change anything for us. We know that we have the potential to score goals. I am convinced they know we can hurt them.

“The first leg was a bad result for us. We did not do the things we had to do. It is a complicated task, but we have the players to turn things around. We need a perfect match.”

Enrique: Barcelona Have Nothing To Lose

Featured Image

Luis Enrique has told Barcelona they have nothing to lose, and must attack when they face Juventus.

Barcelona are on the back foot, losing 3-0 in the first leg of the quarterfinal and must stage another comeback at Camp Nou to progress.

Enrique’s men lost 4-0 to PSG away in the last-16, only for them to stage a miraculous comeback with a 6-1 home win and progress 6-5 on aggregate.

“We have nothing to lose. We only have one option and that is to attack, to attack and to keep attacking,” the Barcelona coach said at a news conference.

“We needed to stay calm against PSG, but also go for it. We need fewer goals, only three, but our objective is to score five goals in case they score as well.

“We have to be effective and put pressure on them. We know what we have to do and how we want to do it. I have no doubt that at some moment we will be close on aggregate.

“I advise the fans not to leave in the 80th minute, we saw against PSG what can happen. The comeback against PSG gives reason for optimism.

“We have another chance to make history. We will give everything, right until the 95th minute. We scored three goals in three minutes, so everything is possible. I hope it is going to be a special night for everybody involved.”

On April 9, gunmen killed six people, including an army captain, four policemen, a landlord and a member of the Oodua People’s Congress at Isawo in Ikorodu.

Kyari said that after the killing of the six people, the I-G deployed the team to Ikorodu to apprehend the suspects.

He said that close monitoring of the area by the police team led to an encounter that resulted to the death of the militant.

“On April 16, after several days of intensive follow up by the IRT team, one of the suspects, Endurance Ominisan, (a.k.a. Mighty), a native of Arogbo in Ondo State, came out from the creeks to visit his girlfriend.

“Ominisan was visiting the girl at a house he rented for her at No. 20, Joel Adebolu St., at Ibeshe in Ikorodu.”

“The IRT team immediately swooped on him and surrounded the house.

“On sighting the operatives, the militant escaped to the roof of the house from where he fired several shots with his pistol at the IRT team.

“The operatives, swiftly returned fire and wounded the militant, who was on the roof of the house.

“The injured militant was eventually brought down from the roof and rushed to General Hospital, Ikorodu, where he later died.

“He mentioned one America, Stone, Vika, etc as his gang members, who participated in the killing of the policemen and a soldier.

“He also confessed that he participated in the kidnapping of the Oniba of Iba, the Turkish School Girls and other abductions in Lagos and Ogun States before he died.

“One Turkish made Fatih 13 pistol with serial No. 12 TF00126 with four expended and five live ammunition were recovered from him,’’ Kyari said.

He said that the team had intensified efforts to arrest the remaining members of the gang.

We Needed To Change Tactics Against Middlesbrough- Arsene Wenger

Featured Image

Arsene Wenger has admitted that he needed to change something in order to snap his side out of their poor form during Monday night’s 2-1 win over Middlesbrough.

The 67-year-old played with three at the back for the first time in 20 years, following in the footsteps of Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, who have all switched to a 3-4-3 system this season.

The Gunners were rewarded with just their third win in their last nine Premier League outings, and Wenger believes that the new formation made his side more solid at the back.

“Yes, it is the first time in 20 years. That shows you that even at my age, you can change. Sometimes when your team lacks confidence, just to have something new to believe helps them to focus. The fact we conceded three at West Brom, three at Crystal Palace, I felt it was needed,” he told reporters.

“It was a committed game that we needed to win. In the first half, it was tight because they defended very well. We were tested just after half time when they came back to 1-1. We were tested mentally and we found a response to win the game. That is what we needed and that’s what we wanted.

“Of course, Middlesbrough did fight because it was one of their last chances to stay in the league. That’s why we never gave up. We maybe rode our luck a little bit one or two occasions on crosses, but overall, we were a bit more solid defensively.”

‘Brighton & Hove Albion Prepared For Premier League Football’ Says Manager Chris Hughton

Featured Image
Brighton & Hove Albion Manager Chris Hughton has said that the club are already set up to host Premier League football next season.

On Monday, Brighton sealed promotion from the Championship after their 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic was followed by a 1-1 draw for Huddersfield Town against Derby County.

The Seagulls are likely to be regarded as one of the favourites for relegation, but Hughton has indicated that the club can fully focus their efforts on improving on the pitch, rather than needing to do work behind the scenes.

The 58-year-old told talkSPORT: “This club has Premier League facilities – the stadium and the training ground are exceptional, but of course, it’s ok having the facilities, you’ve got to be a Premier League team. That’s the hardest bit, but it’s something we’ve achieved now.

“Brighton is a wonderful place for people to come and the support base has been exceptional this season – we’ve seen crowds grow, we’ve probably had more full houses this season than any other season, and that’s testament to what the players have done and to what the supporters have enjoyed.”

 Brighton & Hove Albion will win the Championship title should they emerge victorious from two of their remaining three games.

‘John Terry Deserves Absolute Respect’ -Frank Lampard

Featured Image

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has said that former Chelsea teammate John Terry deserves “absolute respect” after announcing that he will end his 22-year association with the Blues.

After falling down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge, the 36-year-old has said that he feels it is the right time to find a new challenge after a glittering period which was seen him help the club to 16 trophies.

Lampard played alongside Terry during his most successful spell in West London, and the former midfielder has heaped praise on the club captain, who he describes as the “best defender in Premier League history”.

On Instagram, he said: “The last man standing of an incredible era for Chelsea. What a pleasure to play with the greatest defender in the Premier League history. In fact, I’d put him up with any defender in world football of any era. He led the club both on and off the pitch from the moment he made his debut.

“He set standards for everyone, whether it was demanding excellence in training, fighting for every win or respecting how fortunate we were to play for such a great club.

“He was, and is, a legend, not just for his talent but just as much for his desire to get the best out of himself and others around him. That’s what made him the most successful captain in the club’s history.

“Off the pitch a great friend to not just me but so many at the club and outside of it. The countless things I’ve seen JT do to help people outside of the game, things that not many see, are what defines him as a man.

“John Terry you deserve every accolade you get over the next weeks and beyond and I hope you get what you deserve and lift two massive trophies at the end of the season (just to add to the tally).

“Whatever you do next I know everyone will respect your decision and I know that the Chels will always be your club. Absolute respect.”

BREAKING: Lagos Confirms ‘Execution’ Of Rev. King And Others On Death Row

Featured Image

There are very strong indications that the Lagos State Government will soon execute the General-Overseer of the Christian Praying Assembly, CPA, Chukwuemeka Ezeugo, a.k.a Rev. King, and others on death row in Lagos prisons.

PM News is reporting today that barring any last minute change of plans, King and all those who have been on death roll for long are among those set to have a date with the hangman’s noose.

The online newspaper quoted the state’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice Adeniji Kazeem as confirming the development on Tuesday while speaking at a ministerial press conference.

Kazeem said: “Very soon, you will see the action of this government on that issues, we are reviewing the case on Rev. King and others on death roll.”

“Lots of people are on death row, Rev. King is not the only one on death row, it is on the instruction of Ambode that I visited the prisons recently and I discuss the issue with the prison officials and they expressed concern.”

“We are moving in that direction of signing. The prison officials said we need to look at that seriously. Those on death row are beginning to think they have some rights. We are going to move in that direction, you will hear from me, but I will not tell you the exact date.”

The Supreme court had on 27 February, 2016 upheld the judgment of the Appeal Court which passed death penalty on King, saying the condemned reverend must die by hanging.

Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele Targeted By Jose Mourinho

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho wants to test Borussia Dortmund’s resolve to hang on to teen star Ousmane Dembele, according to reports in the Sun.

The France international forward, 19, is currently contracted to the Bundesliga club until the summer of 2021.

Only a huge bid would persuade Dortmund even to think of letting another talented young player move on to a so-called bigger club, especially after only one season.

And if the Bundesliga side refuse to consider offers for Dembele, United have another option in Inter Milan forward Ivan Perisic.

Dembele has delivered on his promise this season, helping Dortmund reach the Champions League quarter finals.

And it seems his performances in Germany have caught Jose Mourinho’s eye ahead of the next transfer window.

InterMilan Target Atletico Madrid Boss Diego Simeone In €50m Offer

Featured Image

Inter will try to lure Atletico boss Diego Simeone to San Siro with a five-year deal worth €50m, reports La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Diego Simeone has worked wonders during his time on the bench at the Vicente Calderon and Inter, one of his former clubs during his playing days, want him to lead them back to success.

As such, they are willing to offer the Argentinian a five-year contract worth €10m a season.

Should they fail to secure Simeone’s services, they will ramp up their efforts to lure Antonio Conte from Chelsea.

The San Siro club are currently managed by Stefano Pioli but his days look numbered.

Inter won’t be in the Champions League next season and even a Europa League qualifying spot looks unlikely.

The club’s owners are planning for the long-term and want a big name on board.

He told The Sun: “I believe I can keep Dundee in the Premiership and I am very interested in this job. I can save the club from relegation. I could definitely get results and get the best out of the Dundee players.
