Conte: Tottenham Have An Advantage In Race For The Title

Featured Image

Antonio Conte has urged Chelsea to use their win in the FA Cup for their upcoming premier league matches, but says Tottenham have an advantage of an extra day’s rest.

Chelsea made it to the final of the FA Cup, after beating Tottenham 4-2 at Wembley. Spurs are four points behind Chelsea on the table.

Conte’s men will welcome Southampton on Tuesday as they look to claim the trophy, but Tottenham have an extra day of rest, as they play Crystal Palace on Wednesday, a situation that doesn’t go down well with the Italian.

Conte said: “We have to try to exploit the momentum. I think this week is crucial for us.

“They have the advantage. We have to play after two days and a half and Tottenham have one day more to rest.

“Sometimes it is difficult to understand this planning of the fixtures but we have to try to answer on the pitch.

“For sure this win is a really important win. They are fighting us for the title. We have to know that, on Tuesday, we play a tough game against a tough team. I want our fans to be the 12th player.”

South Africa-Based Nigerian Pastor Tim Omotoso Arraigned For Allegedly Molesting Over 30 Girls

Featured Image

It was a starling scene at a South African airport on Thursday as the nation’s police arrested a Nigerian pastor, Tim Omotoso, accused of sexually molesting over 30 girls in his congregation.

The 58-year-old Omotosho, the senior pastor of the Jesus Dominion International, an interdenominational ministry, based in Durban, who was arrested inside the toilet at the Port Elizabeth Airport shortly after his flight landed, was arraigned in court on Friday and was denied bail.

According to South African newspaper, The Herald, he is likely to spend 12 nights behind bars.

It is understood that the miracle worker, who cures the sick, reforms criminals and lives like a rock star in one of South Africa’s richest suburbs, had arrived Port Elizabeth airport around 3 pm from Durban where his church is situated.

“Within minutes of the first passengers disembarking, police rushed on to the tarmac. But Omotoso was seen walking into the toilets minutes earlier, accompanied by a woman,” the paper said.

The police alleged that Mr. Omotoso over the years trafficked about 30 young girls from various branches of his church to a house in Umhlanga, KwaZulu-Natal where he allegedly exploited them sexually.

It was further gathered that he allegedly handpicked the girls and instructed them to live in his house where they were forced to have unprotected sex with him.

Meanwhile, he appeared in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court yesterday where his case was postponed to May 3.

Mr. Omotoso, who is the founder of a 24-hour satellite TV station, Ancient of Days Broadcasting Network (ADBN), which is aired across the Caribbean, Africa, Mexico, Middle East, Europe and the United States, is married and has three children.

Pochettino: Chelsea Were Dominated By Tottenham

Featured Image

Mauricio Pochettino insists Tottenham were better than Chelsea, but concedes they lacked in front of goal.

Chelsea won 4-2 in the FA Cup and had only five shots on target. Willian scored a brace, with Hazard and Matic rounding up the scoring.

Pochettino’s men scored twice, after going behind twice, thanks to goals from Kane and Alli.

“Congratulations to Chelsea. We dominated the game, but they were more clinical than us,” Pochettino told BBC Sport. “I feel proud, we were fantastic in the way we played and in our philosophy. They had five shots and scored four goals and we score only two.

“It is important to speak about the moments of the game. We fought a lot. We tried and scored. The penalty for me was a soft penalty or was not a penalty. To go into the changing room 2-1 down was difficult and again we played well in the second half and scored, but then they came back.”

“Only now we can look forward. We are four points behind them and we will try to win our next game,” added the Spurs boss. “I am not worried. The team is strong, we are focused. We were competing with one of the best teams in Europe. Did we deserve more? Sure, but that is football.

“Now we will try to be calm, watch the game again and try to improve. We are in a process of trying to improve, if we cannot win the FA Cup this season we will try again next season.

“We have another difficult game coming up against Crystal Palace. It is a tough league to play, but we are okay. For sure now we are disappointed but that is football.”

“I am very happy for my players and for Michy Batshuayi, he played from the start in an important game. I am happy for Nathan Ake, a young player from our academy. I am happy for Willian, two goals today in a difficult season. For me it is a great achievement.

Harry Kane Claims Tottenham Where The Better Team Despite Loss To Chelsea

Harry Kane has claimed Tottenham were the better team during their FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea, despite falling to a 4-2 defeat at Wembley.

Tottenham came from behind twice as goals from Kane and Dele Alli cancelled out a Willian brace, but Eden Hazard then came off the bench to put Chelsea back in front before Nemanja Matic secured their passage into the final in emphatic style.

Tottenham enjoyed the majority of possession throughout the match, but Kane admitted that they could not find a way past Chelsea as their wait for an FA Cup trophy extended to 26 years.

“I think we were the better team, played better football but couldn’t find a way to win. Sometimes that is football,” he told BBC Sport.

“When we got back to 2-2 we thought we were going to win it but we got punished by another set piece. It is difficult to take right now.”

The suspects, who were arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), were caught while perpetrating certain irregularities in the ongoing registration for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).

Dr Fabian Benjamin, Head of Public Relations of JAMB, in a statement issued in Abuja on Saturday, said:

“These registration thieves deployed fake biometric capturing mechanisms and super-imposed registration slips just to satisfy the curiosity of innocent candidates that their registration was successful.”

“And on the day of examination, such candidates’ data would either be edited, or not found on the JAMB data base.

“Such candidates would not be verified during the examination proper.”

The JAMB spokesman further said that the fraudsters were arrested variously in Oyo, Ogun and Maiduguri by officers and men of the NSCDC and brought to Abuja.

During their interrogations in Abuja, Benjamin said, the suspects gave startling revelations of how they conducted their operations.

“While being paraded in the presence of the Commandant-General of NSCDC, Abdullahi Gana Mohamadu, the fraudsters confessed to numerous registration infractions that JAMB couldn’t imagine.”

“Some of these registration suspects are Computer-Based Test (CBT) centres owners licensed by JAMB to conduct registration exercise for the candidates planning to take the forthcoming UTME,” Benjamin said.

Nemanja Matic Speaks About ‘Special’ FA Cup Victory Over Tottenham

Nemanja Matic has claimed that his side’s FA Cup semi-final victory over Tottenham Hotspur will give them confidence heading into the Premier League title run-in.

Goals from Willian , Eden Hazard and Nemanja Matic saw Chelsea beat Spurs 4-2 to reach next month’s final, leaving the Premier League as Tottenham’s only remaining hope of silverware this season.

Matic capped off the scoring with a stunning strike 10 minutes from time at Wembley this evening, but the Serbian also claimed that the goal was not the best he has ever scored.

“It was a nice goal! But first of all I want to say I am very happy for the team, that we’re going to play in the final. Today was hard against a very good team. Congratulations to Spurs, who didn’t give up,” he told BBC Sport.

“I am happy for my goal, it was a great goal, but it’s not the best I’ve ever scored. I scored a harder one in a Benfica vs. Porto derby… this is perhaps my second best ever!

“It’s great when you have a chance to play in this stadium. For our supporters, you can see this is something special. To have a chance to win this trophy is significant for us as players. This result gives us more confidence of course – it’s always good to win. Now we have to recover quickly for the next game on Tuesday.”

PDP Harvests Over 800 APC Members In Akwa Ibom

Featured Image

More than 800 members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nsit Ubium Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom, on Saturday, defected to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).‎

The APC Chairman in the council area, Mr. Aniefiok Ekah, who led the defectors to the PDP, said the defectors had ‎endured severe hunger in APC and could therefore no longer continue to tolerate such.

‎While submitting every document belonging to APC in his possession for destruction, Ekah, however, pleaded with the PDP not to treat the returnees as outcasts.

He explained that some of them left PDP in 2015 due to cheating by some party leaders who allegedly refused to protect their interests.

His words: “This is the membership register, registration forms and every other item in my possession.

“They were all given to me by APC, please burn them to ashes, there is nothing like APC again in Nsit Ubium.

“We left PDP in the first place because of cheating, middle men were short-changing us of what was meant for party supporters, but we have suffered so much hunger in the APC.”

Apparently elated, the state Chairman of PDP, Mr. Paul Ekpo, while receiving the defectors, lauded them for the bold steps taken and pledged to fully integrate them into the PDP family.

Ekpo said that PDP in the state would continue to accord importance to the interest and welfare of members, adding that the deflectors would be fully integrated into the party.

ULC: Congress Seeks N96,000 Minimum Wage For Nigerian Workers

Featured Image

The United Labour Congress (ULC) on Saturday reiterated the union’s demand for N96,000 minimum wage for workers in the country.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the Northern Coordinator, ULC, John Gimbason, said the proposal was realistic and realisable considering the current inflation in the nation’s economy and in view of workers’ contributions to the nation’s building.

Gimbason, who doubles as a former Kaduna State NLC chairman, made this known while inaugurating a ULC 12-member State Executive Council on Saturday in Kaduna.

He said that the new Labour Centre had opened negotiations with the Federal Government on the proposed N96,000 minimum wage, assuring members that the proposal would soon yield fruits.

Gimbason frowned that while workers are overburdened with lots of responsibilities, they receive stipends as monthly salaries, even as some others do not receive their wages for months.

He further flayed at the Kaduna State government’s plan to sell off government quarters to the highest bidder, saying that it was unacceptable and calling for the reversal of the decision.

The Northern Coordinator also pleaded with the 25 unions under the ULC to give their maximum cooperation to ensure that workers in both public and private sectors were treated with human face.

Meanwhile, the State Chairman of the ULC, Ephriam James, in his inaugural speech, said the council would ensure that workers in the state were liberated to earn salaries they deserve.

NAN reports that NUPENG, NUBIFIE and NUEE officials were among notable associations that attended the inauguration.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes the void left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic can be filled by Wayne Rooney.

Ibrahimovic sustained a serious knee injury in the quarterfinal Europa League win over Anderlecht, and is believed to be out for the season. However, no official statement has been released by the club.

Burnley host United at Turf Moor on Sunday and Dyche is backing Rooney to step up for the Swede.

“They’re not short of options, without a shadow of a doubt,” Dyche told reporters.

“The one everyone thinks is not that good anymore, I think he’s decent – the boy Rooney, I always think he ain’t bad. I certainly think if they chose to play him, I don’t think he would let anyone down.

“You get to an age where you’re questioned regardless of performances. He’s a top-class player; you can’t achieve what he’s achieved in the game and not be a top-class player. You can’t cheat the system. Whatever his journey forward is he will remain a top-class player in my eyes.”

Liverpool will be playing in the champions league again next season , the last time they were in the competition was 2014-15.

Liverpool are third on the table and two points ahead of fourth placed Manchester City.

But Klopp believes Liverpool have become a much more attractive option for players.

“I think that Liverpool at this moment is a really interesting project for players. It’s a fantastic club, it’s a good situation where we really can see the progress of the team,” he said.

“The talks we’ve had so far are very positive. That doesn’t mean it will all work out, but they are really positive, and they all see the progress. That’s good.

“We cannot say 100 percent that we will play Champions League football next year. I’m not sure, but I would say together with Tottenham, the average age of the team is such that there’s still a lot to come.

“We feel in a good way, and if a player wants to be part of this way, then it’s easier to make this decision this year than last year.”

Klopp’s Liverpool play host to Crystal Palace on Sunday.
