Featured Image

Zinedine Zidane has stated he has the Real Madrid DNA and says the club is his life, as he prepares for the UCL final.

Real Madrid are aiming for a double and to become the first team to successfully defend the UCL title.

Zidane is not too concerned about his contract situation, but is only focused on winning the UCL.

“I have one more year on my contract but that doesn’t mean anything,” Zidane told reporters on Tuesday. “I want to be at this club but it depends on what you do on the field.

“I think the club is happy with what we’re doing and I’m only interested in that. The future: Saturday and nothing else.

“I have the Real Madrid DNA, that’s for sure. It’s my home. Everyone has always been very affectionate towards me and I have always defended the values of this club.

“I’ve experienced spectacular things with this club as a player, assistant coach and head coach. I’ll always be a Real Madrid fan because the club is my life.

“I’m enjoying this moment because I know that one day it will end. I’m on top of my job and we’re close to doing something extraordinary, but I’m not thinking about of leaving an important mark in the history of the club. We work hard and that’s the spirit of this team.”

Zidane: Isco And Bale Can Play Together

Featured Image

Zinedine Zidane would not confirm whether Isco or Bale will feature against Juventus, but hinted at both starting.

Isco has been in exceptional form this season, but could lose his spot, following Bale’s return from injury.

The welshman is eager to play in the final, as it is being played in his hometown of Cardiff.

“It is a difficult decision. I have 23 players and I can only pick 11. Some players who have had an extraordinary year might not make the starting XI, this is the hardest thing for me,” Zidane said at a news conference on Tuesday.

“It is only normal there is a debate about whether Isco or Bale will start because they are both great players.

“We are happy that Bale has recovered and is with the team again. Bale is hugely motivated to play because the final is in Cardiff. But all the players will be motivated.

“Isco and Bale can play together. They have done so a number of times this season. They are both in good form heading into the final, although Bale has played fewer minutes.

“We all know what Isco can do and how he has performed in the last few months. He deserves to play in the final, but so do all the others. They all deserve to play, but they cannot all play.”

Featured Image

AC Milan coach Vincenzo Montella has renewed his contract until 2019, the club have announced.

The former striker led the club to sixth place in Serie A this season, securing a place in the Europa League qualifiers.

Montella joined AC Milan a year ago from Sampdoria, replacing Cristian Brocchi, who had been promoted from youth team coach on an interim basis following Sinisa Mihajlovic’s sacking.

“I’m delighted to continue as Milan coach,” Montella said on the club’s official website. “I reaffirm my enthusiasm for this adventure and thank you for the faith shown in me.”

Milan’s sporting director Marco Fassone added: “It’s a very important moment for us and I think also our fans. We’ve reached an agreement which we, the club, are happy with, after the splendid results from this year, a complicated transitional year.”

£30m Flop Moussa Sissoko Tells Tottenham He Wants To Quit The Club

Featured Image

Moussa Sissoko does not want Spurs to block a move away from White Hart Lane this summer.

The midfielder joined Tottenham last summer from Newcastle but has found game time hard to come by under Mauricio Pochettino, with Marseille thought to be interested.

France manager Didier Deschamps has also reportedly told Sissoko that he needs more regular matches to be considered for the 2018 World Cup squad.

As a result he has admitted he is desperate to leave Spurs as they prepare to move to Wembley and confirmed he will sit down with his agent and Pochettino to discuss his future.

“We’ll talk with my agent to make the best decision. My goal is to do the 2018 World Cup,” Moussa Sissoko told L’Equipe.

“If I revisit a season like this and even if the coach likes me, it makes sense to not do it.

“I fell from high. Even though I never thought I would play all the games, I was not expecting such a low playing time. It was the worst season of my career when collectively it was certainly the best – it’s weird.

“I will talk to the coach. It usually gives good advice. He knows me very well, his opinion will count. I wish there was better communication.

“What I want most of all is that everything be clear. If the coach no longer counts on me, he thinks that the players who are there are better, he should say so.

I want an honest discussion about what they intend to do, their future with me. From there, everything will be clearer in my head.”

The 27-year-old, who failed to register a single goal for Spurs, also revealed that he had a falling out with Pochettino in November when he was dropped from the squad altogether but insisted the pair settle the matter.

“It was not because of my performance on the field,” he added. “There was a misunderstanding between us, it settled.

“The club finished second, so maybe it was not wrong, but, personally, I was hoping better. We can not go back. Who can say how it would have happened if I had gone elsewhere?

“Today, I am disappointed because I aspired to better but I am not dejected. I was not expecting such a low playing time.”

Liverpool Agree Terms To Sign Chelsea’s Striker Dominic Solanke

Featured Image

Liverpool have agreed terms to sign Dominic Solanke, who will officially join the club on July 1.

The 19-year-old striker will join Liverpool from Chelsea when his contract with the West London club expires at the end of June.

He spent last season at Stamford Bridge as he tried to force his way into the starting XI after spending the 2015/16 campaign at Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem.

Dominic Solanke has agreed terms with the Anfield club after refusing to sign a contract extension at Stamford Bridge amid concern over a lack of first-team opportunities. Solanke’s current deal expires this summer but, as he is younger than 24, Liverpool will have to pay Chelsea a compensation fee to be decided by a tribunal. The fee is expected to be in the region of £2m-£3m.

“Liverpool FC have agreed personal terms with Dominic Solanke to sign the England youth international this summer,” read a statement on the club’s official website. “The 19-year-old striker will complete the transfer to the Reds on July 1, 2017, upon the expiry of his contract with his current club, Chelsea.”

Solanke has also represented England at every age level from U16 to U21 and is currently in South Korea for the U20 World Cup, where he has so far featured in all three games and scored once to help England into the knockout stages.

Leicester City Don’t Have Any Interest In Selling Riyad Mahrez Unless…

Leicester City do not want to, and will not, sell Riyad Mahrez unless a bidding club is prepared to pay a “substantial” fee for the player.

We understand there is no buyout clause in the four-year contract that Mahrez signed last summer. There have been no bids for Mahrez since this season ended, and Leicester received no bids last summer or in January for him either.

However, reports suggest that Arsenal are monitoring the situation, and 360Nobs understands Arsene Wenger is an admirer of the French-Algerian winger.

The club are yet to comment but the feeling inside the King Power is that for any bid to be acceptable, it would have to reflect Mahrez’s standing as PFA Player of the Year, Ballon d’Or nominee, Premier League winner and Champions League player.

Fayose Calls For Buhari’s Resignation, Says “He’s Incapacitated”

Featured Image

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has called on ailing President Muhammadu Buhari, to resign if he truly loves Nigeria, adding that “we can’t keep waiting for an incapacitated president.” 

Speaking to pressmen in Lagos on Tuesday, Fayose said the president’s ill-health has not allowed him to effectively discharge his constitutional duties.

He said being an “avowed corruption fighter”, Buhari is now under moral burden to save Nigeria from “needless stagnation” arising from his heath challenges.

Appraising the two years of the Buhari administration, Fayose said the All Progressives Congress (APC) government had failed to deliver on its promises.

The governor said fighting corruption was not limited to ‎discovering large sums of money here and there, but doing the right thing at the right time.

Mr. Fayose argued that quitting office when necessary was also an indication of being morally upright.

‎ “So far, the APC-led federal government has been a government of misadventure and Nigerians are worse for it,” he said.

“They say they are fighting corruption but are shielding corrupt elements within their fold. Members of the opposition defect to the APC for protection‎. Fighting corruption is more than discovering huge sums of money all over the place, with nobody being traced to be the owners, moral corruption too is bad.”

‎”He can do us the great help by resigning. Not resigning bothers on his integrity.‎ His absence allows others to suppress and oppress others and that means he is allowing others ‎ to suppress their fellow human beings.‎ There are many governments in one and they are clueless.‎ We need an active president going by our numerous challenges.”

“How long will Nigerians wait for an incapacitated president‎? We cannot wait again for somebody to hold us to ransom.‎ I don’t have any bad blood against Buhari; Osinbajo has no powers without the president. He owes us the duty to tell us the state ‎of his health.”

Woman Charged To Court For Locking Housemaid In Toilet For 20 Days

Featured Image

A 34-year-old woman was on Tuesday charged at the Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State for locking up her 14-year-old housemaid in a toilet for 20 days.

The suspect, Oyinyen Chuks, a trader, who resides at 19, Ojo St., Shasha, a suburb of Lagos, is facing a four-count charge bordering on assault.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Raphael Donny, told the court that the offences were committed between May 2 and May 22 at the residence of the accused.

The prosecutor further stated that the accused alleged that the housemaid stole her money and beat her mercilessly.

He said: “The accused locked the girl inside her toilet, fed her once and didn’t allow her to take a bath or change her clothes for those weeks in bondage.”

“It was one of the neighbours who could not bear the torment anymore that informed the police”.

Donny said that following the report, the police visited the house and found the girl in the condition.

“Hence, the accused was arrested while the girl was taken to the hospital for treatment”, he said.

The offences, he said, contravened Sections 171, 207, 245 and 285 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

She, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against her.

In her ruling, the Chief Magistrate, Mrs Davies Abegunde, granted the accused N1million bail with two sureties in like sum.

The judge also ordered the accused to pay N200,000 into the Court Registrar ‘s account as part of the bail conditions.

She adjourned the case until June 21 for mention.

JUST IN: Senate Finally Passes President Buhari’s Anti-Corruption Bill

Featured Image

The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday passed an executive bill proposed to enlist international assistance in the country’s efforts to fight against corruption.

The corruption or criminal related matters include money laundering, asset acquisition from proceeds of corruption and other forms of illicit financial flows.

The proposed law, Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Between Nigeria and Other Foreign Countries, SB 224, 2017, was read for the third time and subsequently passed by the Senate on Tuesday.

The passage came after the presentation of the joint report on the bill by the Senate committees on foreign affairs, chaired by Monsurat Sunmonu (APC-Oyo); judiciary, human rights and legal matters, chaired by David Umaru (APC-Niger) and anti-corruption, chaired by Chukwuma Utazi, PDP-Enugu.

On January 27, 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari had forwarded the bill and another one on Money Laundering Prevention and Prohibition, to the Senate, before it was finally passed by the lawmakers on Tuesday.

The bill seeks to get relevant international assistance in cases of money laundering and provide framework for “other countries to assist in provision of and obtaining of evidence, making of arrangements for persons to give evidence”.

“The bill also hopes to elicit international assistance in criminal investigations, recovery, forfeiture or confiscation of property in respect of offences.

“The restraining of dealings in property or the freezing of asset that may be recovered, forfeited or confiscated in respect of offences.

“The execution of request for search and seizure, the location and identification of witnesses and suspects,” Mr. Buhari wrote to the Senate in January 2016.

There is no report yet on the second one, Money Laundering Prevention and Prohibition Bill, sent same day as the one on mutual legal assistance.

Following the approval of the bill by the Senate, a similar ratification is expected from the House of Representatives before the bill can be forwarded to the president for assent.

“The governor also approved the appointment of 17 new Permanent Secretaries into the state civil service for efficiency of the service.

“The ongoing exercise and changes in the civil service is to allow for the emergence of a new crop of leadership, reinvigorate the service and entrench equity and fairness.

“The creation of three additional ministries and employment of 250 graduates into the state’s civil service is part of efforts to harness the potentials of the workforce and enhance efficiency in service delivery,’’ he said.

The governor’s aide listed the new ministries to include; the Ministry of Forestry and Animal Resources, Ministry of Solid Minerals Development and Ministry of Culture and Tourism, bringing the number of ministries in the state to 18 from 15.

“The creation of the new ministries is to enable us as government harness our full potential in the state.

“I have also directed the State Civil Service Commission to immediately recruit 250 graduates from the 25 Local Government Areas into the state civil service.

“In addition, I have also approved the appointment of 17 new Permanent Secretaries based on merit and with immediate effect,” he said.

Mr. Orintunsin said that the state public service has been intensely exposed to damaging partisanship and external influences, adding that such practice had compromised their integrity and created negative perceptions. (NAN)

Senate Suspends Port Harcourt Refinery Concession To Agip, Oando

The Senate on Tuesday called on the Ministry of Petroleum Resources to suspend the planned concession of the Port Harcourt refinery to Agip and Oando – a move that was aimed to allow for the repairs and the operation of the facility.

The senators also resolved to constitute an ad hoc committee to probe the concession.

According to the lawmakers, the process should be suspended pending transparency of the process.

The upper legislative chamber of the National Assembly took the decisions after considering a motion sponsored by Sabo Mohammed, senator representing Jigawa south.

While moving the motion, Mohammed said: “The federal government recently entered into an agreement with Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC), a subsidiary of ENI, an Italian oil giant to construct a $15 billion refinery in the Niger Delta region, a deal which also includes investment by Agip in a power plant with the Italian company assisting Nigeria in the repairs of the Port Harcourt refinery.

“The minister of state for petroleum resources stated that the agreement was part of a broader federal government plan to increase capacity for local production and consumption of petroleum products with the aim of ending fuel importation in Nigeria by 2019.

“While the resolve by the federal government to increase local refining capacity is laudable and should be applauded by all Nigerians, the observance of corporate governance principles and the country’s extant laws must be followed to the letter.”

He added that it was not also clear when Oando became part of the deal.

He continued: “The confusion became obvious following the disclosure on May 11, 2017, by the chief executive officer of Oando Plc on the floor of the Nigeria Stock Exchange that the group had received approval of the Federal Government to repair, operate and maintain the Port Harcourt Refinery Company with their partner Agip.”

“This development would have been wonderful because it would mean an end to importation of refined products by the year 2020, but many questions are begging for answers, such as is it Agip/ENI or Oando Plc that is taking over Port Harcourt Refinery?

“Was there the observance of the privatisation law as regards due diligence, selection from preferred bidders before ceding of the Port Harcourt Refinery to Agip/Oando?”

The Minister of Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu, had on May 9 announced that the Nigerian Agip Oil Company, a subsidiary of the Italian oil giant, Eni, had committed to repairing the Port Harcourt refinery, as part of a $15 billion investment that includes building a 150 thousand barrels per day refinery and a power plant.

The plan was aimed at strengthening Nigeria’s drive to end fuel importation by 2019, Mr. Kachikwu said.

Khaldoon Al Mubarak, Manchester City chairman, insists the club will not be selling Sergio Aguero.

Debate over Aguero’s future at Manchester City intensified since the arrival of Gabriel Jesus in January.

And with Guardiola expected to strengthen his squad in the summer, many believes the Argentine will be sold, but Al Mubarak has refuted such claims.

When asked if Aguero is staying, Al Mubarak said: “Absolutely. There’s never been a doubt about that. I’ve read a lot of the speculation on this and it’s ridiculous.

“Sergio Aguero is one of the best players in the world. We are a team that aspires to win every competition we compete in.

“Having Sergio Aguero as part of the squad is an absolute must. It has never been in doubt.”
