Leicester City Have Been Hit With A Lot Of Injuries -Craig Shakespeare

Featured Image

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare has revealed that his players will not be doing a lot of training over the coming days.

Craig Shakespeare revealed that as many as five players will be unavailable for the game at the King Power Stadium.

Wes Morgan and Robert Huth are among the players to miss out, and Shakespeare has said that fitness issues have started to ‘catch up’ with his squad.

The 53-year-old told reporters: “Unfortunately, we’ve still got a few injuries. Wes [Morgan] won’t be okay and we’ve still got Robert Huth out. Danny Drinkwater, Papy Mendy and now Andy King joins the long list.

“We won’t be doing a lot of training next few days. We’ll be doing enough to make sure we are competitive in these two home games. The injuries have caught up with us but there’s two games left and other people will get their opportunity.”

Ruben Loftus-Cheek Might Leave Chelsea On Loan Next Seson

Featured Image

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has reportedly remained as a transfer target of Brighton & Hove Albion.

Loftus-Cheek had been tipped to make an impact at Chelsea after Antonio Conte‘s arrival at the club, but each of his four starts this season have come in cup competitions.

According to the London Evening Standard, the 21-year-old is keen on securing first-team football elsewhere for the next campaign with chances in the Blues XI likely to be few and far between.

A number of clubs – including Brighton – were said to be keen on the England Under-21 international in January, only for Conte opting to keep the player as backup.

However, it has been suggested that Conte may be willing to loan out Loftus-Cheek to another Premier League side, and Brighton could fit the bill.

Dirk Kuyt has announced his retirement from football just a matter of days after winning the Eredivisie crown with Feyenoord.

In 19 years, the ex-Netherlands international played for Utrecht, Feyenoord, Liverpool and Fenerbahce, sealing seven trophies and earning 105 caps for his country.

Kuyt has signed off in style having scored a hat-trick on Sunday to help Feyernoord clinch their first top-flight title in 18 years.

A statement from the Dutchman read: “Throughout my career I have always followed my heart when taking decisions and that goes for this one too,’ said Kuyt as he announced the decision.

“To me this feels like the right time to retire. I have had two fantastic years here since returning to Feyenoord, with this season’s title as the absolute pinnacle. I had the dream of winning trophies and becoming a champion with Feyenoord. All my dreams have come true.”

Dirk Kuyt will remain at Feyenoord with the hope of joining the club’s technical management team.

Michael Van Geel, Feyenoord’s technical director, added: “We are unbelievably grateful to Dirk for what he has done over the past two years. With his attitude, professionalism and passion he has added a lot, in the locker room, on the field and beyond.

“We are therefore delighted that we can retain someone with his experience and setting the club.”

Kuyt made his debut as a professional footballer for FC Utrecht in the 1998-99 season, moving to Feyenoord in 2003.
He joined Liverpool in 2006 and would go on to make 285 appearances for the Reds, scoring 71 times.

Southampton Chairman Ralph Krueger Insists The Club Can Afford Not To Sell It’s Star Players This Summer

Featured Image

Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger says the club would be prepared to turn down a bid of up to £60m for Virgil van Dijk this summer.

Reports in the national press have linked Liverpool and Man City with summer moves for the Netherlands defender, who has been exceptional for Saints since joining from Celtic in September 2015.

Asked if Saints could realistically turn down a £60m bid for the Dutchman, Krueger said: “Can we? Yes. We do not need to sell anybody.”

‘Here we sit in the summer of ’17 and we now have 18 top, or above average, Premier League players under three or more year contracts,’ Krueger said.

‘We actually have 12 players that have more than four years, so 49 months, left on their contract and even a couple with 61 months.

‘So 18 players have more than three years, gives us control over the summer for the first time.

‘We will decide if anybody goes and we will decide who comes in, in the best interests of the club.

‘We do not need to sell any player for the first time since I’ve been here.

‘I can make that statement and – unless football decides it’s in the best interests – we don’t need to do that.

‘I think that we’re moving into a new era at Southampton Football Club after three-and-a-half years of building this foundation of depth, where we have more than 25 players that can play a Premier League game.

‘We now need to consolidate. We’re going to do everything possible to keep the core in place because the one thing that has been lacking here is developing synergies within the squad because of the changes.

‘It has been difficult to maintain the synergies we would see at times during the season.

‘I think that’s one of the reasons we would like to keep the core in place to give the synergies an opportunity, and we are extremely hungry to push back into Europe next year. It is our obsession.’

There have been reports that several Premier League clubs are interested in signing Pickford, 23, after Sunderland’s relegation to the Championship.

“Everybody is well aware that I’ve said he is one of the best goalkeepers in the country,” Sunderland manager Moyes told Sky Sports.

Marco Silva To Decide His Hull City Future In The Next 24 Hours

Featured Image

Marco Silva will be discussing his future with the owners of Hull City in the next 24 hours.

Marco Silva is understood to have signed a six-month deal in January, with an option he could trigger to extend his stay by a further 12 months, and he may now opt to pursue his career elsewhere.

He will now meet members of the board before Sunday’s visit of Tottenham Hotspur to the Kcom Stadium and will elaborate on the reasons for the team’s demotion back to the second tier before seeing “what is best first for the future of the club and also for my career as well”.

“It’s not the moment to talk about my situation, to talk about the future of the manager,” he said after Palace eased to a 4-0 success which preserved their own status, along with that of Swansea City. “I respect too much the club and these fans, who have been amazing since I came here. It’s the moment to speak to the chairman and the board. The club needs to understand what they need to do differently in the future, and we’ll do that next.

“I will talk to the board and the chairman first, talking inside the walls of the club. But for me it’s easy to see what the club needs to do differently. They started to lose [our way] in pre-season when we were making our preparation. We tried to do many things in January but it’s not good to be signing six or seven players in January and losing two [Jake Livermore and Robert Snodgrass] in the market. You should be doing that in June, in pre-season.

“You need to prepare better. So we’ll analyse it and talk in the next few days. We’ll see [if I will be manager next season]. I have enjoyed these four months in the Premier League. That was one target I had in my career and we tried to do our best. Now it’s time to be calm and see what is best first for the future of the club and also for my career as well. But this is not a good day for us. It is a sad day for the club and our fans. They didn’t deserve what’s happened this season.”

I’m Staying At Tottenham – Mauricio Pochettino

Featured Image

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that he will definitely still be at White Hart Lane next season.

And the Argentine has also revealed that there is no buyout clause in his current contract at White Hart Lane.

The 45-year-old Argentine has been in charge at Spurs since joining from Southampton in May 2014 on a five-year deal.

In May of last year he signed a contract extension which commits him to the club until 2021.

“There are many rumours, but I am committed with the club,” he said.

“There is no reason to leave. I will be here for pre-season. There is no buy-out clause in my contract, I will stay here next season.”

Watford Sack Manager Walter Mazzarri After Poor Run Of Form

Featured Image

Watford head coach Walter Mazzarri is to leave the club at the end of the season.

The Italian will take charge of the final match against Man City on Sunday and will then depart along with his coaching staff after just one season in charge.

We understand that Mazzarri was told of the decision yesterday at the club’s training ground by club owner Gino Pozzo and chairman Scott Duxbury.

Chairman Scott Duxbury said in a statement: “After the Board discussed with Walter Mazzarri the club’s future goals and aspirations, it was decided he will be stepping down from his position as the club’s Head Coach after the final game of the 2016/17 season. We thank Walter and his staff for the contribution they have made to Watford Football Club over the past year.”

Mazzarri’s future at Watford has been the subject of speculation for several weeks after a difficult end to the season.

Watford are currently in 16th in the Premier League having lost their five games — including the 4-3 defeat to Chelsea on Monday night — and were nervously looking over their shoulder in the relegation battle before Hull’s defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend confirmed the final spot.

360Nobs understands that a number of Watford players would have looked to leave the club in the summer if Mazzarri remained in charge.

Morale among the squad is understood to be at rock-bottom, with a significant rift between the players and manager.

Squad members have been irked by the manager’s lack of English – he has taken to barking instructions at them in Italian during matches, leaving them bewildered.

And a lack of days off has also become an issue. Mazzarri granted a rare piece of down time to his staff on Tuesday.

Nigerian Army Warns Officers, Soldiers To Steer Clear Of Politics

Featured Image

The Nigerian Army has issued a stern warning to all officers and soldiers in the Force to steer clear of politics.

While issuing the warning, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, revealed that some politicians have been making frantic efforts to infiltrate his officers for various political “actions and gains”.

The cautionary words from the Army Chief may not be unconnected to the air of uncertainty in the country arising from President Muhammadu Buhari’s illness, which necessitated his return to London penultimate week to get medical treatment for an undisclosed ailment.

Although he did not speak more on what the political “actions and gains” were, it is rumoured that Buratai’s warning followed a report of an attempt by some politicians to infiltrate the military, particularly the Nigerian Army.

A statement issued by the Director of Army Public Relations, Brig. Gen. Sani Usman, said the army headquarters and the COAS had received information about such “sinister plans” by some politicians to derail the professional calling of some army officers.

The statement read: “This is to inform the public that the Chief of Army Staff, Nigerian Army and Lieutenant-General TY Buratai have received information that some individuals have been approaching some officers and soldiers for undisclosed political reasons.

“On the basis of that, he has warned such persons to desist from these acts.

“He also reminded them that the Nigerian Army is a thorough professional, disciplined, loyal and apolitical institution that has clear constitutional roles and responsibilities.

“He seriously warned and advised all officers and soldiers interested in politics to resign their commission or apply for voluntary discharge forthwith.”

“Any officer or soldier of the Nigerian Army found to be hobnobbing with such elements or engaged in unprofessional conduct such as politicking would have himself or herself to blame.”

“The COAS has further reiterated that the Nigerian Army will remain apolitical and respect the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

Senate Orders CBN, NNPC, FIRS, 35 Other Agencies To Submit Budget Proposals Or Risk Sanctions

Featured Image

The Senate on Tuesday directed the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) and 35 other Federal Government agencies to submit their 2017 budget proposals for approval or risk sanctions.

The upper chamber of the National Assembly stated that it was unbecoming that five months into the year, 38 statutory agencies of the Federal Government have failed to submit their budget proposal for the 2017 fiscal year.

It further stated that the agencies continued to make huge extra budgetary expenditure against the law establishing them.

Speaking on Tuesday, the Deputy Senate Leader, Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah (Kebbi South), who dragged the attention of the Senate to the matter, said it was abnormal for the agencies not to have submitted their budgets for approval by the National Assembly.

He further stressed that it was wrong for agencies to spend money that has not been appropriated by the legislature.

Na’Allah told the Senate that he intends to bring the issue to the floor as a motion so that Senators will understand the implications and the need to assist the government to fight corruption.

He said: “I deliberately decided that I will bring it on the floor, so that Senators will understand the implications.

“In our commitment to assist this government to fight corruption, we must stand on our feet that every spirit of our law must be obeyed by those holding public offices. I think that if you permit me I will like to come tomorrow by way of motion, so it can be debated on the floor of the Senate.

“The only approach this Senate can take to assist this government in fighting corruption, is to insist that gross abuse of power and misuse of power must be stopped by every government agency. The only way we can build our institutions is to radically address the issue of abuse of power and misuse of power. I think that if you give me permission, I will like to bring it tomorrow as a motion.”

Reacting to Na’Allah’s submission with an approval, the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, expressed displeasure over the failure by most government agencies to submit their 2017 budget proposals to the National Assembly for consideration and approval.

Saraki condemned the practice where agencies of government spend money without statutory approval by the National Assembly.

The senate president ruled that the Senate would comprehensively debate the issue and take a resolution today (Wednesday).

Nigerian Govt To Terminate 6 Abandoned Projects In Niger Delta

Featured Image

The Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs has said it has concluded arrangements to terminate about six abandoned projects spread across the region with a view to enhance the development of the region.

This disclosure was made known by the Minister, Pastor Uguru Usani, while receiving the report on the audit and review of the East-west road and other project of its Ministry in Abuja.

Usani said that following the report from the Ministerial Technical Audit Committee on the contracts awarded from 2009 – 2015 in the Niger Delta, that some projects have been proposed for termination.

He listed the projects to include construction of OkpuhutaMbano Junction – Orie market –Lomara- Igwebulka (35km) – Abia State; Land reclamation and Erosion control project at OguduAbia Phase I, Abia State.

Others are Idoro-Eastern Itam Water Supply Scheme Akwa Ibom; Construction of Mbak Atai-Ikot Ntu-MkpetiOkuiboku road project (13.86km) Akwa Ibom State; Ukparam Water Supply Scheme and Construction and Supervision of Omelema – Agada II Road, Rivers State. Project Length 14.415km.

He said, “Gross lack of capacity problem, lack of seriousness on the project, lack of technical capacity to prosecute project and gross lack of competence by the contractors”.

“Prominent among other issues of violation were indiscriminate award of contract by initiating and benefiting departments without the leading and guiding role of the procurement department.

“Awards never took cognizance of availability of funds and annual appropriation provisions.

“This manifestly, emanated from inconsistency in government annual budgetary provision and lack of capacity to deliver especially where funds released do not correspond with performance.

“Most contracts were awarded with specific dates of completion but were not captured in subsequent appropriations.

“Consequently, no capital project was completed within the stipulated time frame.”

A close family friend, Mr Yusuf Oludaisi, described the act as dastardly and wicked, wondering what the victim must have done to warrant such treatment.

“He was someone whom we grew up together. I have known him for 30 years to be humble and kind to everyone who came across his path.

“It’s really sad because this was someone you will never see quarrelling or being disrespectful”, said Oludaisi, while speaking with NAN.

The younger brother of the victim, Alfa Ishaaq Amzat-Salam, however, said he would leave the matter for God to judge.

“I leave those who perpetrated such evil into God’s hands for He alone will judge them. The deed cannot be undone.

“I will always remember my brother forever for his loving kindness as he was a shining light to us all”, said Ishaaq.

Senator Gbenga Kaka (Ogun East), who was at the burial of the victims, described the incident as very sad.

“I am a close friend to the father of the victim and when I heard what happened, I was in shock.

“It is unimaginable what these people did and it brings much sadness to my heart. I don’t even have the words to describe it”, said Kaka.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), in Ogun, Bimbola Oyeyemi, said the command was aware of the incident.

“We are already doing all to investigate and apprehend the culprit”, he said.
