Spalletti Bemoans Separating Totti From Roma

Featured Image

Luciano Spalletti is hoping Eusebio Di Francesco can reunite Roma, after he admitted to playing a divisive role between Roma and Totti.

Spalletti left Roma after the end of the season, despite leading to second on the table and is now in charge at Inter Milan.

His decision to separate club great and veteran footballer Totti from the club, was a cloud that followed his time at Roma.

“Inter contacted me when I was about to finish the championship,” Spalletti said in his first news conference as Nerazzurri coach. “[Roma president James] Pallotta had already been warned by me that I would be gone.

“After the farewell to Roma, this was the best thing that could happen to me. I say this without wanting anyone to take offence.

“In Rome, I had become the one that divided rather than united. There was this problem on the management of Totti.

“I came to see this contrast – the love for the most important player prevailed on the support and affection that we had to have for the team.

“In not being able to put the two things together, I did not do my job well. These two things must go hand in hand.

“I was in trouble because I heard rumours from the fans. I heard them on the streets, in bars, at traffic lights. Many were in favour but there was a line of demarcation.

“They must all be united. I even now wish this to Roma.”

Nigeria Moves To Stop Evasion Of Taxes By Major Companies

Featured Image

The Federal Government of Nigerian on Wednesday announced that plans are underway to stop major companies from evading tax.

To achieve this, the Federal Executive Council granted permission to the Ministry of Finance to sign a multilateral convention to implement tax treaty related matters to prevent base erosion and profit shifting.

Base erosion and profit shifting is a situation where the profit that was made in Nigeria using accounting methods is shifted to a country that has little or no tax.

The decision to sign the convention was taken at a meeting of the council presided over by the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The disclosure was made by the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, while speaking with State House correspondents after the meeting.

She said, “In simple language, this administration is very focused on revenue generation and mobilisation and part of that work is to improve our tax collection.

“One of the means by which major companies evade tax is a practice called base erosion and profit shifting which means that the profit that was made in Nigeria using accounting methods is shifted it to a country that has little or no tax.

“So really the country in which profit was generated doesn’t get tax, they go and declare those profits in a country that has very low tax.

“There is a contact among the G20 countries and the OECD to end this and Nigeria was part of those who negotiated this convention and today council gave us permission to go and sign the conventions.”

He made 36 appearances under Enrique, but his spot is not guaranteed. And the 23-year-old intends to fight for it under Valverde.

Suarez told Sport: “Next season I will be at Barca come what may.

“It’s a different year, with a new manager and I’m really excited about proving to him that I have a place in the team.”

He added: “Like I said when I came back to Barca, I will fight to stay here for many years and to be a first team regular.”

“The difference is their second line of players participated more than ours. At the end of the season they rotated a lot, but they aren’t at a superior level.”

Douglas Costa Is The Right Player For Juventus – Mircea Lucescu

Featured Image

Douglas Costa is ready to play in Italy amid reported interest from Juventus, his former manager Mircea Lucescu has told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa played for Mircea Lucescu at Shakhtar Donetsk, and the coach described him as “one of the purest talents I have ever coached.”

The player’s agent is reported to have met Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta, and Lucescu said both the club and the 26-year-old could benefit from a move.

“He’s proven that he is suited to a big club and he’s gained a lot of experience, also in the Champions League and in the national team,” Lucescu said.

“This is fundamental because experience improves you, but you only gain it over time.

“The Italian league is very stimulating, both tactically and emotionally, and he — like many Brazilians — is one who tends to be at his best when he feels he has people around him who believe in him and is in a position where his qualities can come to the fore.”

Lucescu said Costa “combines an impressive basic pace with great dribbling skills and a deadly shot with both feet.”

He said the player knew how to change the pace of a game and added: “I could see straight away that he had good touches, but he was only expressing this talent for himself.

“Over the years at Shakhtar, we taught him to make himself at the service of the group. It would be a great choice [for Juve]. If the deal goes through, I would be delighted for him.

“I am always happy to see a player I signed improve and join a big club.”

Douglas Costa Agrees To Join Juventus From Bayern Munich

Featured Image

Juventus are expected to hold talks with Bayern Munich for Douglas Costa next week after agreeing personal terms with the player’s agent.

It is understood Juve officials agreed a package of £5.3m (€6m) per year for the player in a meeting with Costa’s agent in Turin on Tuesday.

According to La Gazetta dello Sport, Costa’s agent met with Juventus officials on Tuesday and told them of his client’s intention of a move to Turin.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side seem unlikely to lose money from their initial outlay on Costa after the club splashed out £30m on him from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2015.

But with the likes of Kingsley Coman waiting in the wings, Bayern are well equipped in attack and appear amenable to a deal.

Bayern are believed to want £44m (€50m) for the Brazil international winger, but Champions League finalists and Serie A winners Juve are only willing to pay a maximum of £39.6m (€45m).

Despite failing to nail down regular starts last season, Costa still played his part in the campaign, making a total of 34 appearances in all competitions.

Costa chipped in with seven goals and provided nine assists as the Bavarian side cruised to another title defence in the Bundesliga.

Torino Still Interested In Signing Manchester City Outcast Joe Hart

Featured Image
Torino are considering a move to sign Joe Hart on loan for a second straight season, reports Tuttosport.

The report claims PSG ‘keeper Salvatore Sirigu is Torino’s first-choice target but talks have reached an impasse.

Should they fail to resume, Torino will instead turn their attention to England international Hart.

The Man City goalkeeper spent last season on loan at the Serie A club.

“I need an offer first and then I need to work out my options if I have choices,” said Hart in regards to his future.

“I’m not a kid anymore. I can’t just pack my stuff like a 17-year-old and go on loan. I am a 30-year-old man with stuff I need to organise. I like stability.

“I’ve got nothing at the moment because I think people are focused on international duty and respecting that players are focusing on international duty.”

Hart has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs since the arrival of Ederson at Manchester City, however, the England keeper is taking his time before completing a transfer away from the Etihad Stadium after an 11-year stint with the club.

Featured Image

Dusan Tadic has said “you never know in football” when asked about speculation he could leave Southampton this summer.

The Serbian international has been linked with a move to Liverpool.

And he said: “I don’t comment on these things. I have an agent and I have correct things with the club.

“We will see. You never know in football. In every club, sometimes players leave. It is not easy, but this is football.”

‘I have an agent and I have correct things with the club.’

Tadic’s game time at Southampton has been reduced this season after he fell out with Claude Puel and he has appeared on the Reds’ radar due to his £13m release clause.

The Serbian would be the sixth player to swap the south coast for Merseyside in the last three seasons after Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Rickie Lambert, Nathaniel Clyne and Sadio Mane’s transfers.

BREAKING: CCT Clears Saraki, Dismisses All 18 Charges Of False Asset Declaration Against Him

Featured Image

The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) sitting in Abuja on Wednesday dismissed the 18 charges of false asset declaration filed against the Senate President, Dr. Bulola Saraki.

During a previous sitting, the Senate President, through his no-case submission filed before the CCT on May 26, 2017, had contended that none of the exhibits tendered and no evidence given by the four prosecution witnesses linked him to the alleged offences to warrant him to defend the charges.

The Danladi Umar-led two-man panel of the CCT then reserved its ruling after hearing Saraki’s no-case submission and the Federal Government’s objection to it on June 8.

However, on Wednesday morning, the panel unanimously upheld Saraki’s no-case submission, holding that the evidence led by the prosecution was discredited under cross-examination and therefore unreliable.

The CCT further held that no reasonable tribunal would convict a defendant on the evidence led by the prosecution through its four witnesses.

The CCB had on September 16, 2015 filed a 13-count charge against Saraki for alleged false and anticipatory declaration of assets.

The charges were increased to 15 on April 18, 2016 and another charge was added on April 27, 2016 to make it 16.

The federal government later increased the charges to 17 on January 11, 2017 and finally to 18 on February 23, 2017.
