Wenger Fooled By False Report, Mistakenly Congratulates George Weah On Liberia Election Win

Featured Image

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has seemingly been the victim of false reports, after rumours made the round that former football star George Weah had won Liberia’s presidential election – even though the final results have not yet been announced.

It is understood that Wenger wrongly congratulated his former player for winning the Liberian presidential election on Thursday.

Unfortunately for the 67-year-old French tactician, the results have not been announced.

Wenger, who coached the 51-year-old footballer-turned-politician at Monaco between 1988 and 1992, had said in his pre-Watford press conference:

“I would like to congratulate one of my former players, who became president of Liberia, George Weah.

“It is not often that you have a former player who becomes a president of a country and so well done Georgie and I would say just for him to keep his enthusiasm and his desire to learn and to win.”

Mr Weah was among 20 presidential candidates in Tuesday’s election.

The former Fifa World Footballer of the Year failed in his two previous attempts but is one of the front-runners to replace President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

However, most analysts expect it to go to a second round, as a candidate needs more than 50% of the votes for outright victory.

But there have been false reports of Mr Weah’s victory circulating on social media.

Lyon Striker Mariano Diaz Uncertain About Real Madrid Return

Featured Image

Former Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz says he is unsure of any clauses that may allow Los Blancos to re-sign him just months after his €8 million move to Lyon.

The 24 year-old has got off to a flying start at Stade de Lyon, scoring six goals in eight appearances, prompting questions surrounding a possible buy-back clause with both Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo yet to register in La Liga.

He told Onda Cero and Radio Marca: I signed for five years with Lyon but I don’t know if Madrid have any purchase option. I had a few offers and Lyon made a strong bid for me. [Alexandre] Lacazette left a space in attack and Zidane advised me that it’d be a good option.

“I’m really pleased with how things have started. The French league is very physical and I’ve learned a lot in the last few matches.”

Leicester City Manager Craig Shakespeare Confirms Club Are Interested In Signing Bacary Sagna

Featured Image

Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare says the club are keeping tabs on former Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna, though his potential signing is not something that has been discussed at the King Power Stadium as yet.

Bacary Sagna spent the last three years at Manchester City but has been without a club since his release in the summer and Shakespeare says he will review the Frenchman’s situation.

He said: “We have looked at him before but we haven’t spoken about him recently. We are aware of the situation. We will look at it and review.

“We have good defensive cover at the moment and players who can cover in different positions but you always have to make sure that you are aware where the cover might come from if you have one or two injuries.”

Adrien Silva Now Training With His Leicester City Teammates

Featured Image

Adrien Silva is now training with Leicester while the Premier League club consider going to the Court of Arbitration for Sport over his transfer “saga”, Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare has confirmed.

The paperwork on Adrien Silva’s £22m move from Sporting Lisbon arrived 14 seconds too late on the deadline day of 31 August.

“He wants to play football and train,” said Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare.

“He’s had to miss out not only on club football but international football and we’ve tried to keep his spirits up.

“I speak to him on a regular basis during training to make sure he’s fully focused on what his requirements are.”

Shakespeare says the club are looking at arranging behind-closed-doors friendly fixtures to help 28-year-old Silva maintain his fitness.

“The camaraderie and the banter is brilliant in and around the changing rooms and I wanted to integrate him as quickly as possible and I can do that now,” added Shakespeare.

“It would be remiss of me not to plan for the worst-case scenario, which is that we don’t have him until January.

“In terms of his fitness, we will have a plan in place – and we will probably have a Plan A, B, C, D, E and F, so it’s something that we will continue to monitor.”

Featured Image

France booked their spot in Russia with consecutive victories over Belarus and Bulgaria, with Digne playing an important role.

France finished top of Group A and four points clear of Sweden , Digne would not call them favourites, but believes they can challenge for the World Cup.

“We can win the World Cup with this team,” Digne told Goal. “Of course, we have to think like that.

“We have great ambitions and a huge potential in this squad, but there are other teams who can win it as well, so I don’t see ourselves as favourites.

“Of course we can improve as a team and hit our top level in Russia, but now we have qualified directly and that is a great feeling for us all – and for the whole country.

“We can allow ourselves to dream right now, but the most important thing is to work hard.”

“Going into the last two games, we knew we could decide everything ourselves by winning both,” he said. “We’re very satisfied that we managed to do just that.

“Personally, I’m happy that I could play the full match in both of these important fixtures and thereby contribute to helping us to the World Cup. Celebrating on Tuesday with a full and party-ready Stade de France was a special experience.”

Featured Image

The Supreme Court on Thursday, October12, adjourned the hearing of a former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki’s appeal to January 25, 2018.

The ex-NSA is asking the country’s apex court to compel the Federal Government to obey the bail orders granted to him by the Federal High Court Abuja and obey ECOWAS CCJ Judgement that ordered his immediate release on bail.

It Is Impossible To Say Dasuki Stole $2.2 Billion – Jonathan

Dasuki has asked the Supreme Court to effectively stop the trials against him in the lower courts until the bail granted to him is implemented.

Colonel Dasuki is facing trial in the FCT High Court and Federal High Court Abuja for money laundering, breach of trust, conspiracy and unlawful possession of firearms – arising out of alleged misappropriation of 2.1 billion dollars by former NSA.

“Klopp Was Interested In Managing United”

Featured Image

Eckhard Krautzun has stated that Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp was very interested in managing Manchester United.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager joined Liverpool in 2015 and his addition to the Anfield team was hailed.

But Krautzun , who was replaced at Mainz by Klopp says the German tactician was always interested in managing at Old Trafford.

He told TheSetPieces on the Premier League aspirations of a man considered to be one of the finest bosses in the business: “It would be his dream to go to England one day and his favourite club would be [Manchester] United. That’s what he said.”

“After three or four months not working, I knew that he wanted to be in action again…when the offer came from Liverpool [that October], I knew he would not hesitate because he wanted to get into a top club in England,” said Krautzun.

He added: “The emotions in the stadium in Liverpool and the enthusiasm of the fans, the temperament there – that fits Klopp.

“I was not surprised that the spectators liked him right away. His emotions, the way he coaches the team, the way he jumps around, the way he shows his desire to win, that fits the club.

“The fans are little more different to Man Utd. Man Utd is more quiet, the fans love their team too but there is more emotion and more passion I think in Liverpool. And Kloppo I think is a passionate, very temperamental man. That club fits him.”

Osinbajo Admits Granting N640 Billion Oil Contracts For NNPC

Featured Image

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has admitted that he granted authorisation to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) for two oil contracts worth N640 billion.

A statement issued on the verified account of the presidential spokesperson, Laolu Akande, said Mr. Osinbajo approved the contracts in his capacity as acting president in July.

“In response to media inquiries on NNPC joint venture financing, VP Osinbajo, as Ag President approved recommendations after due diligence,” Mr. Akande said.

This is coming barely a day after the apex oil firm disclosed that the presidential approvals it received for two oil contracts worth N640 billion were granted by the Vice President during his time as Acting President.

On Wednesday, the spokesperson for the NNPC, Ndu Ughamadu, had said that the “Acting President Yemi Osinbajo gave the approval.”

Recall that a critical analysis of the NNPC reply to the Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu, showed that the NNPC received presidential approvals for at least two contract awards during the time President Muhammadu Buhari was on medical leave in London.

The statement said NNPC received presidential approvals for two oil contracts on July 10 and July 31 worth $1 billion and $780 million, respectively, while Buhari was on medical leave.

When quizzed further, Ughamadu added, “Presidential approval is presidential approval.”

The development is coming on the back of a memo written to President Muhammadu Buhari by the Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu, in which he accused Baru, NNPC GMD, of $26bn contract scam.

Kachikwu had also accused the NNPC boss of insubordination and sidelining him from important decisions.

Spain

Manchester United are willing to let Arsenal transfer target Anthony Martial join Barcelona as part of a deal that would bring Ivan Rakitic to Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho is a keen admirer of the Croatian midfielder and believes his creativity could be a real asset to him in the Premier League.

Martial, despite beginning the season in fine form, has not been a guaranteed starter under the Portuguese coach and may be used as a makeweight. (Diario Gol)

Philippe Coutinho remains a Barcelona transfer target and the club will again try to sign him in January, according to club CEO Oscar Grau.

The Brazilian playmaker was the centre of a bitter transfer saga in the summer as Liverpool refused to sell him to the Catalan side, with the player himself attempting to force through a move. And while the Reds’ stance has not softened, the Merseyside club are braced for another bid come January.

“We are ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market, or any player the technical staff request,” Grau said in a press conference. (Marca)

Meanwhile, Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta is targeting a return from injury for the side’s trip to Atletico Madrid at the weekend. The 33-year-old is still recovering from a hamstring injury which forced him to miss both of Spain’s recent World Cup qualifiers and has two more training sessions this week to prove his fitness. (Mundo Deportivo)

Italy

Napoli are interested in signing highly-rated Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa. The Italian club’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis confirmed that he failed with several bids for the 19-year-old in the summer, but is ready to go back in with a big offer. Chiesa has scored two goals and notched one assist in six Serie A appearances this season. (Corriere dello Sport)

Juventus have identified a key transfer target of their own, with the club set to launch a bid in excess of £70m for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. The Manchester City transfer target has been in impressive form this season and is expected to be the subject of intense transfer speculation in the coming months, with his brother issuing a come-and-get-him plea by saying he is waiting for Juventus. (Tuttosport)

France

Paris Saint-Germain defender Dani Alves has welcomed the possibility of the club signing Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez.

The Manchester City transfer target is expected to leave the Gunners in either January or next summer, and the former Barcelona and Juventus right-back has said it would be good to see him add to the Ligue 1 side’s glittering array of attacking talent.

“He is wanted by many teams. It would be good if he came with us,” Alves said. (Le Parisien)

RB Leipzig Almost Signed Kylian Mbappe – Ralf Ragnick

Featured Image

RB Leipzig were close to signing PSG’s on-loan wonderkid Kylian Mbappe two years ago, claims sporting director Ralf Rangnick.

The 18 year-old’s transfer saga dominated the back pages across Europe throughout the summer, with Spanish giants Real Madrid keen suitors, though he decided to leave Monaco but remain in Ligue 1 with PSG.

Speakling to Bild, Rangnick said that he had a conversation with Mbappe’s father that almost altered the player’s career, though his inability to honour a promise was the deciding factor.

“The problem was back then we just separated from our coach Alexander Zorniger. It was shortly after the winter break 2015, so at that moment we didn’t know who our next manager would be and how everything would continue.

“Kylian’s father said to me that if I could say for sure that I would become the new manager, he would entrust his son to me immediately. But in February [2015] I could not give him that promise.”

Arsene Wenger Admits Arsenal May Need To Sell Alexis Sanchez And Mesut Ozil In January

Featured Image

Arsene Wenger has admitted that Arsenal may be forced to sell Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in January to avoid the pair leaving for free next summer.

Striker Sanchez and midfielder Ozil are both out of contract at the end of the season and, despite lengthy negotiations, neither have agreed to extend their current deals.

The stalemate leaves Arsenal facing the possibility of their two star players departing for free and Wenger conceded selling mid-season is one solution.

“It is possible,” Gunners boss Wenger said. “Once you’re in our kind of situation, we have envisaged every solution, yes.”

Asked if the club had set a deadline for talks to be resolved, Wenger said: “No. Not at the moment.”

(OPINION): 2019: May Buhari Not Contest

2019: May Buhari Not Contest – Abimbola Adelakun

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

My prayer for Nigeria is that President Muhammadu Buhari will not contest another presidential election in 2019. I hope when the time comes, he will do the noblest thing: Thank Nigerians for giving him a chance to serve, allow the transition process to run smoothly without his interference, and walk away with his head high. That will be the best thing for Nigeria, and one hopes he has enough of the acclaimed Mandela spirit in him to know when to walk away from the gambling table. Nigeria is doing poorly under his watch and we cannot continue this way until 2023. We cannot be munching the same old issues on our weakened gums every election cycle. If Buhari decides to contest in 2019, we will waste about half of the electioneering time on enervating debates about his health; arguing whether he has the physical and mental capability to continue the taxing job of leading Nigeria or not. His detractors and his followers will have a lot of material to chew on for many such specious debates, none of which will improve our lot.

This piece was written by Abimbola Adelakun. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

There will be much talk about Buhari’s disposition: how he not only failed to stop medical tourism as he promised but has probably spent the highest sum of public money ever on his health. This year, he has spent almost six months abroad treating an unknown ailment, and there is no guarantee he will not travel again before his tenure expires. His foreign trips have cost Nigeria tons of naira, and knowing how prohibitive medical costs in Britain can be for a non-citizen, Buhari has probably cost Nigeria higher than the budgetary allocation to the entire health sector in Nigeria. And the man is not humble enough even to be grateful to Nigerians whose sweat and blood pay for these luxuries.

When he returned from his last lengthy trip in August, after some 104 days, his first impulse was to re-establish territorial dominance to dissidents who had gained ground in his absence. Shorn of either tact or contemplation, he rode roughshod on an issue that could have been handled far differently. If Buhari chooses to contest, these issues will come up and his defenders, will, expectedly, twist themselves into climbing ropes to defend their “big daddy”. They will blackmail us with religious and cultural sentiments about not holding a poor man’s health against him. They will whip out their Red Book and mindlessly spew out their regular jabberwocky about their poor old man. They will say he is deserving of our indulgence because he is the messiah who saved Nigeria from the 10 plagues, (never mind that people are fighting Pharoah’s army and drowning in the Red Sea).

The conversation will expectedly spiral into the usual argument about Buhari fighting corruption. His aides will argue that for Buhari’s flaws to be so evident, it could only mean that corruption is fighting back. At this point, aides will then reach for their favourite whipping boy ­­­– Dr. Goodluck Jonathan – to blame him for everything wrong with Nigeria. They will do all these to pass the time and by the time we are done with this chaotic cycle of palaver, more than 90 per cent of the election time would have been frittered and the election date, close. We would have little time left to engage the actual issues that matter to our lives as Nigerians and our future as a country. Time is running out on us as a nation and we can barely afford distractions. We need to be serious and Buhari’s presence will hardly let us be. That is why he needs to go in 2019.

Buhari’s government has fallen far short of the standard it set for itself and it is unfair that we should be called upon to discuss his underperformance when far weightier matters are at stake. We should not have to be running through the content of its manifesto to see what promises he made about reforming the country’s political construct when we should be having far more useful conversations with a fresher candidate who has his thought through political reforms and is ready to highlight them lucidly. In 2019, we should not have to be carrying out a post-mortem of Jonathan’s government, along with the usual spirit-sapping news of who stole what, when, and where. We want someone who has thought through the art of fighting corruption in Nigeria, has viable and workable plans towards achieving them and is not going to surround himself with people his government should be putting through the judiciary laundry.

From 2019, we should not have to listen to about a mere 55 people who have stolen a whopping $6.2bn from Nigeria’s coffers anymore. We need to move forward as the stories of corruption are no longer entertaining; they are now a psychological burden that breeds despair in the audience and ultimately desensitises them to corruption. We no longer need such diversion

We should not have to resurrect the old question of whether Buhari has a certificate or not. Neither should we be consumed with his aging body when he gets exhausted on campaign grounds and flies out for another round of medical tourism in the thick of the election. None of that should be our portion. Come 2019, we should not have to deal with the odium that will emanate from Buhari’s aides who will dominate the media with their religious-spiced charade. We deserve more; we deserve better.

If Buhari loves us and loves this country, he should just go back to Daura so he can free the political space for more deserving candidates. In 2019, we want to be talking about issues that border on rebuilding the education sector that has been consistently vandalised by previous administrations that needed to weaken the mind of Nigerians to make them more susceptible to administrative abuse.

We need to talk about how we can revamp the Nigerian health sector so that every Nigerian, from the interior of Borno State to the cosmopolitan Lagos can have access to quality medical care. We do not want to hear Mrs. Aisha Buhari talk about how Aso Rock, with all the budgetary allocation it receives, lacks elementary amenities. If Mrs. Buhari is pained by what is happening in Aso Rock, she could have conducted an independent investigation and resolved the issue privately. Bringing it to the public is a waste of time because her audience has no power to adjudicate. Public access to medical care is worse and Mrs. Buhari’s complaints, from the top of the pinnacle where she is perched and enjoys the privilege of her positions, can barely appreciate people’s health challenges.

From 2019, we should not be dealing with leaders who gorge themselves on public wealth and then turn around to enter the oppression Olympics with genuinely disenfranchised people. No matter what the APC and its governors – especially the likes of Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State who is an ardent supporter of Buhari 2019 say – I pray Buhari leave the arena and let Nigeria breathe.

Not that I believe that 2019 will turn Nigeria into an El Dorado or that a perfect leader is waiting in the wings to take over. Our walk to freedom is far and the road ahead offers no guarantees. There is a lot of work in our future to get to the Promised Land and that is why we can barely afford to waste time beating a dying horse and insisting it takes us home. We should be looking for candidates who have energy, goals, plans, ideas, philosophy, and vision. Buhari cannot offer all these for obvious reasons, some of them not his fault. And that is why he should do all of us a favour and exit this stage when he can still get some applause.

Hamburg Still Keeping Tabs Their On-loan Striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga

Featured Image

Hamburg are keeping tabs on their on-loan Leeds striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga and say he could be in the Bundesliga club’s future plans next season, report the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga has impressed so far on his season-long loan in the Championship, scoring three goals in six appearances.

Todt told the Hamburger Morgenpost: “If Pierre plays a good season he could also play a role (at Hamburg) with a lot of fresh self-confidence.”

Lasogga moved to Leeds on a season-long loan in August after being told that he would not feature in the plans of Hamburg head coach Markus Gisdol.

As many as four strikers are in front of Lasogga at the Volksparkstadion and Hamburg’s insistence on moving Lasogga on saw them agree to subsidise around 75 per cent of his salary as part of their deal with Leeds.

Hamburg have scored just four times in seven games this season and are third from bottom in the Bundesliga.

Nigeria Denies Rumour On Cancellation Of Post-UTME Examination

Featured Image

The Federal Government on Wednesday refuted reports in the media that it has ordered the cancellation of post-UTME examination; urging candidates seeking admission into tertiary institutions to ignore the rumours.

The denial was contained in a press statement issued yesterday by the ministry’s Director of Press, Mrs. Chinenye Ihuoma, in Abuja on behalf of the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.

The minister further described the statement credited to a former Deputy Director of Press of the ministry, Ben Goong, as completely false and without foundation even as he urged universities to go ahead with arrangements for the examination as earlier planned.

According to Adamu, Goong ceased to be a staff of the ministry since November 2016.

The statement reads: “The attention of the Honourable Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu has been drawn to a news report in the media claiming that the Minister had issued a directive to universities to cancel the Post-UTME examinations already scheduled.

“The statement, according to the report, was issued by Mr. Ben Goong, Deputy Director of Press.

“The Ministry would like to assert emphatically that:- The report is completely false and without foundation.

“The Minister therefore urges universities to go ahead with their Post- UTME arrangements as earlier planned.

“Mr. Goong, who purportedly issued the statement, ceased to be a staff of the Ministry since November, 2016.”

The statement also warned universities against charging beyond the N2,000 fee stipulated for the examination.

“The attention of the minister has been drawn to some of the institutions who are charging more than the stipulated N2,000.00 (Two Thousand Naira) only.

“The minister views this as an act of insubordination and emphatically redirected that every institution that runs in violation to the directive will be made to face disciplinary action.

“He therefore, asked such institutions to refund to the students immediately. Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been directed to compile list of violators for appropriate sanctions.

“The ministry also urges the media to always endeavour to crosscheck facts with the relevant officials of the Ministry before going to the press, particularly when such sensitive matters of national importance are involved.”

Report : Real Madrid Ready To Offer Up To Three Players To Sign Harry Kane

Featured Image

Real Madrid are ready to offer Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric in a swap deal for Tottenham’s Harry Kane, report Diario Gol.

Harry Kane is reportedly valued at €200m (£179m) with Real president Florentino Perez prepared to offer Spurs three players to make up the fee.

Ideally Bale would be the only player included in the swap deal but the fact he is so injury prone has devalued the Welshman significantly.

The inclusion of Bale and Benzema would bring the offer required down to £35.7m (€40m), according to the reports.

But if Tottenham continued to demand more from Real, Perez has also considered including Modric in the offer.

Newcastle Looking To Make Loan Bid For Liverpool’s Danny Ings

Newcastle are looking to bolster their striking options by launching a loan bid for Liverpool’s Danny Ings in January, according to the Shields Gazette.

Danny Ings’ time at Liverpool has been marred by injury and is still yet to play under manager Jurgen Klopp.

Rafa Benitez is believed to be keen to take the striker to Newcastle so the 25-year-old can get regular playing time.

This comes after Danny Ings insisted he wanted to remain at Anfield.

“Everywhere I have been, I have always found a way to make it happen,” he told The Times. “I have been in a lot of tough situations at previous clubs where it’s been hard to break in.

Juventus And Inter Milan Considering Move For Olivier Giroud

Featured Image

Juventus and Inter Milan are considering a move for Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud in January, according to Calciomercato.

The two Serie A giants believe that Giroud’s limited starting opportunities at Arsenal could tempt him away from north London.

Giroud was courted by Everton in the summer and recently admitted that he was ‘very close’ to making the move.

He also revealed that French duo Marseille and Lyon had expressed an interest in him but that he had wanted to remain in England.

However, an opportunity to join an Italian giant may prove too much to turn down for 31-year-old Giroud, who realistically has one major move left in his career.

Olivier Giroud joined Arsenal from Montpellier in 2012 and has gone on to bag 100 goals in 237 appearances for the club, winning three FA Cups.

However, he is yet to start a Premier League game this season, with Arsene Wenger choosing to deploy him as an impact substitute.

Getting Lionel Messi To Manchester City Will Be ‘Complicated’ – Sergio Aguero

Featured Image

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero admits he would “love” to see Lionel Messi join him at his club , but admits it would be “complicated” to persuade the 30-year-old to leave Barcelona due to his stature in the game.

“The money isn’t a problem here,” Aguero told TyC Sport. “But I think Messi, like [Cristiano] Ronaldo, are players who are symbols of their clubs and it’s difficult for them to leave.

“I would love to have Leo on my team, but that seems quite complicated.”

Reports claim Messi is being lined up for a world-record £357million switch to the Etihad in January.

Lionel Messi is out of contract at the end of the season.

And despite Barcelona claiming an agreement has been struck, Messi is yet to put pen-to-paper on the deal.
