Jose Mourinho Criticizes His Team’s Lack Of Creativity

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho has criticised his side’s lack of creativity during their narrow 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford.

Manchester United needed an own goal from Lewis Dunk midway through the second half to come away with all three points against their promoted opponents, just about doing enough to maintain their flawless home record in the league this season.

“It was a battle. It was a battle because Brighton were very good. I think they were good from minute one until the last minute. Good approach, defensively very well organised. I keep saying to defend well is very important. For some pundits no, but to defend well is very important. And they defended very, very well, and they were quite dangerous on the counter-attack,” he told reporters.

“I think they played really well and we didn’t play well. Today our creation was poor. The three players who played with (Romelu) Lukaku, they didn’t get the ball, they were not successful in the one against one. Marcus (Rashford) did not have a happy match at all. The good thing for me was the intensity got higher in the second half in search of the goal. Then after the goal we couldn’t kill the game.

“In the last 10, 15 minutes I saw a humble team with everybody trying to play for the clean sheet and giving everything. So I am happy with the attitude. I have to praise a team and a manager who a few months ago were playing in the Championship. Today they came to Old Trafford and they were the team until now who gave us the biggest problems.”

Douglas Costa To Join Juventus Permanently

Featured Image

Juventus will activate their option to sign on-loan Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa, according to the Bundesliga club’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Douglas Costa joined Juve on a season-long loan during the summer transfer window.

The Bianconeri have the option to secure his services on a permanent basis and Rummenigge says they will activate it.

“He (Costa) will be signed definitively for €46m,” he is quoted as saying on TuttoJuve.com.

After joining Bayern from Shakhtar Donetsk for €30m in 2015, Costa enjoyed a bright first season in Germany, scoring four and assisting 14 goals in 27 Bundesliga appearances under Pep Guardiola.

However, Costa, who had to contend for a place on the flanks with Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Kingsley Coman, struggled to back up his strong debut campaign and started only 14 of Bayern’s 34 Bundesliga games last term.

Marko Arnautovic hopes he has put a difficult start to his West Ham career behind him.

The £24m record signing had been made a scapegoat for the Hammers’ poor start to the season, but he was given a standing ovation when he limped off in Friday’s draw with Leicester.

“It was hard for me at the beginning of the season,” Arnautovic told the club’s website. “I got the red card, then I was ill when we played Swansea and it was hard mentally for me, but I think I’m ready, I’m fit and I hope I can give everything for West Ham.

“I’m not here for no reason, and I want to show the fans, the players and everyone involved at West Ham that they can count on me.

“I want to help the team, I want to give assists and score goals. Hopefully that can come in the future.”

Hoffenheim And Bayern Munich Yet To Agree On Transfer Fee For Sandro Wagner

Featured Image

Sandro Wagner’s move to Bayern Munich is at risk of falling through, according to Kicker.

The Hoffenheim striker was expected to join the Bundesliga champions in January, but Bayern president Uli Hoeness has revealed the deal is far from completion.

“I think that’s going to be a matter of compensation, and I hear we’re miles apart right now,” he said. “The way it looks right now, that’s going to be pretty bad.”

Former Bayern player Wagner is under contract at Hoffenheim, the club he joined from Darmstadt in 2016, until 2020, and it has been reported that he could be allowed to leave for a transfer exceeding €10 million.

Hoeness also hopes he can convince Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes to extend his tenure.

Borussia Dortmund Manager Peter Bosz Refusing To Give Up Despite Second Half Disaster Vs Schalke

Featured Image

Borussia Dortmund boss Peter Bosz has vowed to continue, despite his side’s second-half capitulation against derby rivals Schalke today.

A match which at half-time looked set to ease the pressure on the Dortmund boss in the end only turned up the heat further.

“It is hard to analyse and to cope with that,” Bosz, whose side have now taken two points from their last six Bundesliga games, said on the Dortmund website.

“You feel nothing but disappointment. When you lead 4-0 at the break, that cannot be allowed to happen.

“It is now up to me to rebuild the team. We have to continue to believe in ourselves, we have to shed the uncertainty. I am a fighter – I was as a player and I am as a coach too. I am not giving up.”

On the second half, Bosz said: “We didn’t play football any more, lost the ball much too quickly, didn’t use the room that Schalke offered us. If you see how the goals come about, it is much too easy.”

On the red card, he added: “He wanted to help the team in a defensive situation, but went in to aggressively. Clearly, he should not let that happen, but he wanted to help.”

It’s Official! Musiliu Obanikoro Dumps PDP For APC

Featured Image

A former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, on Saturday in Lagos dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr. Obanikoro’s defection at his Lagos Island constituency ended months of speculations about the status of his political allegiance.

There were earlier reports that he had settled his differences with the national leader of APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as a step to joining the ruling party.

Atiku Dumps APC, Says “Party Has Failed Nigerians”

Though Mr. Obanikoro acknowledged reconciling with Mr. Tinubu, he neither denied nor confirmed plans to join the APC.

He, however, finally gave the hint of his defection during a television interview on Thursday.

NAN reports that Mr. Obanikoro defected to the APC along with other PDP bigwigs in the state, including a former aide of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Modupe Sasore.

Others are a national officer of the PDP, Jide Damazio, and another PDP chieftain, Kola Balogun.

They were received by chieftains of APC, including the state chairman, Henry Ajomale; Kashim Imam, James Odunbaku as well as the Attorney General of Lagos State, Adeniji Kazeem, who represented Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode.

Past and serving members of the National Assembly including Ganiyu Solomon, Gbenga Ashafa and Jide Jimoh were among APC bigwigs present.

Presenting the APC flag to Mr. Obanikoro and others, Mr. Ajomale said the coming of the former minister and others meant the opposition was totally dead in the state.

He described Mr. Obanikoro as politically experienced and sagacious, and said his joining the party would no doubt add to the electoral fortune of the party in the state.

“We are happy to receive Obanikoro back in our fold. He was with us when we started the Alliance for Democracy (AD) but he decided to go the other way.

“Thank God he has realised his mistake and he is back. We are indeed happy to get back this big fish, along with others.

“Obanikoro is an asset and he will no doubt add value to our party,’’ he said.

Mr. Obanikoro, in his speech, said he was happy to return to the fold of his age-long political associates after his long sojourn in the PDP.

He said he defected because he could not find fulfillment in the PDP and he joined the ruling party because he had a mission to render service on its platform.

The ex-minister said his former party could not offer him the platform for the kind of service he wanted to render.

“Today, I and others are not just joining the APC for joining sake, we are joining because we are on a mission.

“I had joined the PDP a few years ago with the hope that certain things would be done right to enable me make the desired impact. That did not happen.

“And now, Asiwaju Tinubu has taken leadership to another level, not only in the state, but at the national level.

“So, my joining the APC is not by accident. It is to return to my people and seek a platform on which I can render service to my people, because leadership is about service and co-ordination of talents to achieve results.

“We have looked everywhere, and the only party that offers that platform for service delivery is the APC.

“For me, this is not really a defection; it is a home-coming, because in a way, this is my root. I am happy to return to my people; no place like home,” he said.

Mr. Obanikoro praised the leadership style of Mr. Tinubu, which he said had ensured the development of the state.

He thanked Mr. Tinubu for being magnanimous to accept him back in the fold after years of altercations between them.

“I thank Tinubu for his magnanimity. I am here because he is generous and has a forgiving heart. If it were other leaders, they will say ‘God forbid’.

“He has accepted me back despite all the issues between us, I am grateful to him,” Mr. Obanikoro said.
The former minister said he we would do his best to add value to his new party.

Also, Messrs. Sasore and Balogun took turns to thank the party for allowing them into the fold.

They said they could not find fulfillment in PDP hence, the decision to join APC.

The duo promised to do their best to ensure APC progresses in the state.

Mr. Imam, in his remark, said the party was happy to receive Mr. Obanikoro and others.

He said the defection meant the party was the only party in the state, as it marked the end of PDP.

The National Vice-Chairman of the APC (South West), Puis Akinyelure, who represented Mr. Tinubu, said the party was glad about the homecoming of Mr. Obanikoro and others.

He said the defection meant the PDP was dead as Mr. Obanikoro was one of its pillars in the state.

NAN reports it was a carnival-like ceremony as party faithful danced and sang to receive Mr. Obanikoro and the others.

A popular Fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, was on hand to thrill those present.

Meanwhile, Nigerian indigenous rappers, Phyno and Olamide have taken to social media to apologize to their fans for not turning up for their show in Toronto, Canada.

Phyno wrote on Instagram;

We humbly apologize to our fans who bought tickets for The Culture Tour in Canada. Olamide and Phyno love and adore their fans and did everything within their power to ensure they performed at the event.

However the promoter Prince George Entertainment defaulted on the our agreement . It was announced at the venue during the show that Phyno was sick and he couldn’t perform which is a lie.

Jeff Bezos Of Amazon Now Worth $100 Billion – Thanks To Black Friday

Featured Image

American entrepreneur, Jeff Bezos, who is the founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Amazon.com and owner of ‘The Washington Post’, is now worth $100 billion, further securing his title as the world’s richest man.

Bloomberg reports that the $100 billion milestone makes Bezos, 53, the first billionaire to build a 12-figure net worth since 1999, when Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates hit the mark.

It was gathered that Bezos’ fortune went up $2.4 billion to $100.3 billion, as the online retailer’s shares jumped more than 2 percent on optimism for Black Friday sales.

Jeff Bezos is the world’s newest $100 billion mogul.

Jeff Bezos is the world’s newest $100 billion mogul.

Online purchases for the day are up 18.4 percent over last year, according to data from Adobe Analytics, and investors are betting the company will take an outsized share of online spending over the gifting season.

“World’s Richest Man” is a title Bezos officially earned in October when he beat Gates for the title, a feat he also briefly accomplished in July.

Bezos started 2017 as the fourth richest person in the world, and surpassed both Inditex (ZTSTF, +2.98%) founder Amancio Ortega and Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffet this year as well. Bezos’ climbing net worth is due in part to an exceptionally profitable year for Amazon, which saw the acquisition of Whole Foods.

While Gates and Bezos have both been vying for the top spot on the world’s richest person list for some time, Gates made it slightly easier for Bezos to surpass him this year when he donated 5% of his net worth (roughly $4.6 billion) to charity in August. Unlike Gates, Bezos has given very little of his fortune to charity so far.

Gates, who currently has a net worth of $86.8 billion, is estimated to have had a net worth of $150 billion had he not given so much of his fortune to charity.

Meanwhile, Bezos himself has shown interest in philanthropy. This past June he asked Twitter for ideas on how to be a better philanthropist.

His goal was to tackle problems “at the intersection of urgent need and lasting impact.”

Honeymoon To Doom: Couples Maim, Send Partners To Early Graves – Eric Dumo

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

Over the last few days, the Nigerian airspace has been replete with all sorts of news. While some have been soul-lifting, a handful others have been demoralising, leaving many confused as to where the society was headed. Even though cases of spouses and even lovers having strained relationship and quarrelling in the process are not totally strange, killing each other in the midst of such tempestuous moments appears to have become almost a tradition these days.

This piece was written by Eric Dumo and was first published on The Punch Newspaper. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

For example, last Saturday evening, news of a nursing mother stabbing her husband to death in their Wuse, Abuja, home rent the airwaves, sending shocks down the spines of many across the country. The young mother identified as Maryam Sanda, stabbed her spouse – Bilyamin Bello – son of a former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Haliru Bello, in the neck and chest while he slept in the bedroom following suspicions of infidelity. Though immediately rushed to a nearby hospital by the woman, the young man died shortly afterwards due to the grievous bodily harm inflicted on him.

Wife Stabs Son Of Ex-PDP Chairman To Death Over Infidelity Allegation

According to close friends of the victim, the two-year-old marriage had been fraught with problems as a result of Sanda’s violent tendencies and hot temperament.

“Maryam had attacked Bilyamin before the latest incident, which unfortunately led to his death. The two got married about two years ago when the victim’s father persuaded him to marry her. Everyone was shocked by Bilyamin’s death; it was sudden, unexpected and tragic,” one of his friends said.

Describing the act as intentional, the police in Abuja, which already filed murder charges against the suspect at the Federal Capital Territory High Court and obtained a two-week remand warrant to keep her, are seeking the death penalty. They want maximum punishment for the crime.

While news of the gruesome murder of Bilyamin,a real estate developer, by his wife was yet to fully die down, the airwaves was again rocked by another similar occurrence on Wednesday, November 22, when a woman stabbed her husband multiple times with broken bottle in Zamfara State. The incident, which happened in Gusau, the capital city, did not only send residents around the neighbourhood into panic, but shed more light on rising cases of spousal abuse in the country.

Though findings by Saturday PUNCH reveal that the victim is still alive, he is said to be in a critical situation following the gravity of the attack and the terrible state it left him.

“The man is still alive but he is in a very bad state because his wife stabbed him several times and in different places. They had an argument and the next thing, she broke a bottle and charged at her husband with the aim of finishing him up.

“We are all still in shock because nobody expected such,” a resident around the area of the incident, Alim, said.

While the victim in Zamfara is lucky to remain alive after being served a ‘deadly blow’ by his wife, Mr. Raymond Ihugba, a resident of Owerri in Imo State was not as fortunate. His wife, Augustina, bathed him with acid after accusing him of adultery. The woman had traced the 50-year-old to a construction site where he was working before emptying the deadly liquid on him. She immediately fled the scene, leaving him to his fate. Despite being rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri, Ihugba died shortly afterwards. The incident, which happened on October 10, 2017, continues to leave residents of the community in shock.

“Ray did his best to take care of his family with the little resources he had but rather than rally round him and remain steadfast in prayers, his wife always made life difficult for him. Now that she has killed him, I hope that she will be satisfied,” mother of the victim, Eunice Ihugba, said painfully after his death.

In September, the gruesome murder of a 33-year-old woman known as Onyinye Eze by her husband, Stephen Akpata, in Bayelsa State, added a troubling twist to this rising phenomenon. Akpata, said to have lived in Australia for several years before moving back to Nigeria, strangled Eze with the cable of an electric iron before also stabbing her with a kitchen knife. He thereafter locked her body up in their apartment before going into hiding. He was however, arrested by the police two weeks later in Badagry, Lagos.

“When our operatives went into the apartment of the deceased, we meticulously searched the environment and saw a three-quarter knicker that was well hidden, tucked somewhere in the room that one would not suspect that something was hidden there,” Commissioner of Police in Bayelsa, Asuquo Amba, said. “We discovered there was a blood stain on the knicker. By this time, we tried to find out who was with the lady because we knew that they had just contracted a registry marriage.

“We got in touch with Akpata who is the purported husband. He gave us the impression that he was out of town, implying that he travelled before the incident.

“So, we were still communicating with him, at least to break the news to him that his purported wife was dead. He told us he was on his way back and this took us some days.

Court Remands Maryam Sanda In Suleja Prisons – Woman Who Allegedly Stabbed Husband To Death

“As we were communicating with him, he was giving us the impression that he was coming back, not knowing that he was plotting his own escape.

“We found out that prior to the time of her murder, the suspect had spent so much money on her and they were moving from one hotel to another. Still, we were playing along to enable him to come to us. But since he said he was in Lagos, we suspected that Ghana or Republic of Benin would be a likely point of escape.

“We got in touch with the embassies there and the Ghanaian Embassy was on the alert. From our radar, we found out that he slept in Ghana.

“He escaped back to Badagry in Lagos. He did not know we were still following him up. We got in touch with the police in Badagry. Eventually he was arrested at the Badagry border. That was how we brought him back,”Amba added.

About one month before that time, an auxiliary nurse in the Oto-Awori area of Lagos, Mrs. Folashade Idoko, stabbed her husband, Lawrence, to death, after accusing him of cheating on her with another woman. According to neighbours, the wife had constantly subjected the 32-year-old man to domestic abuse since they married even though the victim showed restraint hoping that she would turn a new leaf.

“He returned from a one-week official assignment one evening and his wife accused him of having extramarital affair before stabbing him in the leg with a sharp knife. It was his three-year-old son’s cries that alerted neighbours, by which time he had bled profusely.

“He died about an hour after he was rushed to the nearby New Ayetoro Medical Centre,” the victim’s neighbour said.

Revealing that they had no idea their relation was in an abusive marriage, aunt to the deceased, Betty Abbah, said that they could have known how to help him had he opened up to them on the real situation.

“My nephew, like many men and women who die daily in violent relationships, would have been alive had they fled such deadly arrangements in the name of marriage.

“We, the family, will ensure that justice is done. This is another young and promising life deliberately cut short and this wickedness will not go unpunished.

“We would have intervened one way or the other but he hid the entire violent scenario from us. Persons suffering domestic violence should always call out for help. It is indeed a big tragedy for us,” she said.

That same month, a pregnant woman – Chinyere Akaleme, was killed by her husband, Obinna, on the day she was to be delivered of the baby. Announcing the incident in a post on popular social networking platform – Facebook, a Benue-based human rights activist, Ukan Kurugh, said the woman had been a victim of domestic abuse since she married the man in 2012.

“Unfortunately for Chinyere, she did not live to tell her own story. She was cut down in her prime by the man she loved till death. She died on the day she was to give birth after series of miscarriages.

“In 2012, she met and married Obinna, a farmer/chef/kitchen assistant and thus began her journey to an untimely death in the hands of the man she loved so much and catered for,” the post read in parts.

The incident came after another disturbing spousal killing when in July a 39-year-old mother-of-three, Omotayo Salawudeen, confessed to murdering her husband, Hakeem, while being paraded by the police in Oshogbo, Osun State. The woman, who contracted the services of a 24-year-old ex-convict, Oladapo Dolapo, for backup, said that she snuffed life out of the victim after he got her angry.

“We were married for 17 years and were blessed with three children. My husband didn’t offend me, I was just mad at him. I choked him with pillow after we had sex while I got Dolapo to stab him to death with a knife,” the woman said.

Disturbing as these killings appear, they are only a fraction of spousal murders that have occurred in many parts of Nigeria in recent times. While some observers blame these gruesome attacks on the pressure created by the country’s poor economy on families, others finger the loss of morals and societal values as part of the major causes fueling this sad trend.

According to Sociologist, Biobele George, the failure of couples to carefully interrogate the person of their partners before going into marriage and also learn to exhibit tolerance and genuine respect for each other was part of factors contributing to such deaths as witnessed today.

“Today’s youths want and love to do things in a hurry. They fail to sometimes take their time to study a person and or situation before jumping into marriage. They meet somebody today and by tomorrow, they are man and wife. This should not necessarily be so.

“Marriage, being one of the sacred institutions ordained by God, requires a lot of sacrifice and perseverance. Many of today’s young people do not have such and that is why some of these things are happening.

“The problem also reflects how low we have gone as a society. If for example the large majority of the society still has regards for our morals and values, many of these things won’t be happening.

“For me, it is not a question of frustration due to economic factors, I think if a man and woman understand each other very well and are always willing to make sacrifices, they will experience peace and surmount any challenge that comes their way,” he said.

Matteo Darmian has emerged as a target for Roma. With right-back Rick Karsdorp set for a substantial spell on the sidelines after injuring his ACL, Roma are in the market for a replacement. The belief is that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will release the versatile defender in January, and Roma want to bring him back to Italy. Other players on the list include Aleix Vidal and Sime Vrsaljko. (Calciomercato)

Alex Sandro remains on the radar of Chelsea manager Antonio Conte. Manchester United are also keen on the Brazilian full-back and Juventus could be tempted to sell him, the Serie A champions have lined up Roma’s Emerson Palmieri as a replacement. The left-back is available for €25m (£22.3m) after losing his place to Aleksandar Kolarov. (Calciomercato)

Spain

Real Madrid are in the market for a new goalkeeper. The reigning European champions have been linked with David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois in the past but moves failed to materialise. The club appear to have moved on from the two Premier League ‘keepers and are now looking a little closer to home, with Athletic Bilbao shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga top of the list. (Marca)

inedine Zidane’s coaching ability is getting seriously tested. The La Liga champions continue to lose star players on a weekly basis with Marco Asensio the latest to be sidelined through injury. So far this season the Real Madrid manager has been without; Keylor Navas, Raphael Varane, Dani Carvajal, Luca Zidane, Jesus Vallejo, Marcelo, Theo Hernandez, Marcos Llorente, Mateo Kovacic, Dani Ceballos, Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale at various stages of the campaign. (Marca)

Lionel Messi has revealed the three clubs he sees as rivals to Barcelona’s Champions League challenge. “(Manchester) City is one of the strongest teams at the moment together with Paris Saint-Germain,” he said. “So far, they have been the two teams that have shown themselves to be favourites, but this is a very long and tough competition. I never rule out Madrid because although they’re not having the results that everyone expects, I have no doubt that in the end they will be fighting for everything, as they do every year.” (AS)

Eric Abidal has revealed he didn’t get off to the best of starts with Pep Guardiola when he was appointed as Barcelona manager. “At the start, our relationship was complicated,” he said. “Guardiola came to me and told me to stop speaking in French with Thierry Henry. I told him ‘don’t talk to me like that, I’m not a child’ and secondly, ‘if I can’t speak in French with Henry, why are the Catalans speaking in Catalan among themselves?” (Sport)

Germany

Sandro Wagner’s move to Bayern Munich is at risk of falling through. The Hoffenheim striker was expected to join the Bundesliga champions in January but Bayern president Uli Hoeness has revealed it’s not close to completion. “I think that’s going to be a matter of compensation, and I hear we’re miles apart right now,” he said. “The way it looks right now, that’s going to be pretty bad.” (Kicker)

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed Douglas Costa’s loan move to Juventus has been turned into a permanent transfer, and it was the club’s most-expensive sale in their history. The Italian champions parted with €46m (£41.1m) to secure the Brazilian’s services, €16m (£14.3m) more than they received when selling Toni Kroos to Real Madrid. (Kicker)

France

Atletico Madrid are set to rival Inter Milan for the signature of Javier Pastore in January. The Paris Saint-Germain playmaker is set to be a victim of the French club satisfying the FFP rules with the club having to sell a number of players this winter. (L’Equipe)

Arsene Wenger Denies Mesut Ozil Has Already Agreed To Join Barcelona

Featured Image

Arsene Wenger has denied Mesut Ozil has already agreed to move to Barcelona when his contract expires at Arsenal.

Mesut Ozil is out of contract at the end of the season and is set to leave the Gunners next summer having failed to sign a new deal.

Ozil is free to speak to foreign clubs in January but Wenger denies the Germany international has already agreed to join Barcelona next season.

Asked if Ozil had already agreed terms with the current La Liga leaders, the Frenchman said: “No.

“What kind of control can I have over that [speculation]? All these people have agents who can talk to anybody. That doesn’t disturb people, that happens all through their career.”

Arsene Wenger refused to sell either Ozil or Sanchez in the summer despite knowing they could walk away for free in 2018, although that stance softened as a potential move to Manchester City for the latter almost came to fruition on deadline day.p
