Alexis Sanchez Speaks About His Struggles At Manchester United

Featured Image

Alexis Sanchez has confessed that he “expected something better” from his opening weeks at Manchester United after coming in for major criticism.

Alexis Sanchez is earning wages in excess of £500,000 a week following his high-profile switch from Premier League rivals Arsenal in January.

Sanchez’s United career has yet to take off, though, as he has scored just one goal in 10 appearances and was overlooked for selection in the 2-0 win over Brighton last weekend.

Speaking to reporters upon linking up with his Chile teammates in Sweden, Sanchez admitted that he has found life tough since joining the Red Devils.

“As I am self-demanding, I expected something better,” he said. “After my arrival at United, it was hard to change everything very quickly. I even hesitated to come here [to Sweden].

“I had asked permission to miss these games, but then I thought better and spoke with Claudio [Bravo] and told him that we should all be united.

“The change of club was something that was very abrupt – it was the first time I’ve changed clubs in January – but many things have happened in my life that are difficult.”

Nigeria, South Africa Absent As 44 African Nations Sign Free Trade Area Agreement

Featured Image

Leaders from Nigeria and South Africa were absent on Wednesday as leaders from 44 African countries signed an agreement to form a $2.5 trillion continental free-trade zone.

The creation of a free trade area — billed as the world’s largest in terms of participating countries since the creation of the World Trade Organisation in 1995 — comes after two years of negotiations and is one of the AU’s flagship projects for greater African integration.

“The agreement establishing the CFTA (African Continental Free Trade Area) was signed by 44 countries,” said Moussa Faki Mahamat, chairperson of the AU commission.

However, the agreement will still have to be ratified at a national level, and is only due to come into force in 180 days.

The full list of countries which did not sign the agreement is not yet available, however Nigeria is a notable absentee after President Muhammadu Buhari pulled out of this week’s launch in Rwanda saying he needed more time for consultations at home.

Nigeria, one of Africa’s largest markets, hesitated after objections from business leaders and unions — a sign that getting the deal through scores of national parliaments may face several hurdles.

On his part, South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa, said his country will join the agreement when the necessary legal processes are concluded.

“President Ramaphosa has undertaken that South Africa will become a signatory to the agreement once the legal and other instruments associated with (the trade bloc) are processed and ratified by South African stakeholders and parliament,” he said.

Meanwhile, Albert Muchanga, the AU Commissioner for Trade and Industry, has said:

“Some countries have reservations and have not finalised their national consultations. But we shall have another summit in Mauritania in July where we expect countries with reservations to also sign.”

“Chelsea Is My Home” – N’golo Kante Reveals Has No Intention Of Leaving Chelsea

Featured Image

N’Golo Kante insists he has no desire to leave Chelsea amid speculation Paris Saint-Germain could move for him in the summer.

N’golo Kante joined Chelsea from Leicester for £32m in July 2016 and played a major role as the Blues cruised to the Premier League title during his first season at the club. Chelsea have failed to recapture the same form this season and currently sit in fifth spot, five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with eight matches remaining.

Reports in the national media have suggested PSG are keen to bring Kante to the Parc des Princes ahead of next season, with them having the potential lure of Champions League football. But Kante told the London Evening Standard: “I am at home. It is my club, I am a Chelsea player. This is my second year at Chelsea. After what happened last season, it was a very good one for us because we got to celebrate winning the title.

“In the second season, I have got to play in the Champions League and we are going again to finish in the top four. We will fight until the end to finish in the top four and to get in a Champions League position. We also have the FA Cup to play for – it is a good competition. Last season we failed in the final. It is the only trophy we can win this season, so we have to give everything to get to the final and win it.”

Jay Z With Wife, Beyonce Spotted On A Bike Ride In Jamaica

Featured Image

According to TMZ, power couple, Jay Z and Beyonce are in Jamaica to shoot a video content that will be used for their upcoming On the Run II Tour.

Jay Z and Beyonce are spotted cruising along the famous Trenchtown where the music legend, Bob Marley lived for a while and always sang about.

The couple will be shooting at Tuff Gong, Bob Marley’s home, and studio. Jay was on Jamrock just last year … when he recorded with Damian Marley for the 4:44 album.

With the tour which is set to kick off in June 2018, it is obvious the power couple have put aside all the cheating drama and are moving on. It would be recalled that back in November 2017, while granting an interview with Dean Baquet from The New York Times, Jay Z explained why he cheated on Beyonce and how they both used therapy to avoid divorce.

“You have to survive. So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions. So, even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect. … In my case, like, it’s deep. And then all the things happen from there: infidelity,” he said.

Reading have announced that manager Jaap Stam has left the with immediate effect.

Jaap Stam Stam led the club to the Championship playoff final in his first season at the helm, but a difficult 2017-18 campaign has left the Royals in 20th position in the Championship table – just three points outside of the relegation zone.

#BBNaija 2018 Day 51: Is Bringing Back The Ex-housemates Really Worth It?

Featured Image

Not very many people know that the Big brother show was created by the Dutch after dipping into the unknown and exploringa format that was centred around the ‘all seeing’ supreme, which later grew wings into the #bbnaija show. Africa was hit hard by the Big brother show and thanks to our unique viewing glass and an authentic artistry, we were able to add colour and the sound of the drum to the format.

With the introduction of the #BBBringBack twist to the #bbnaija show which is new to the African shore but has previously been used in the US and Canada, raised more than a few controversies.

From an unbiased point of view, the ex-housemates who are potential ‘returnees’ have been exposed to the outside world, the media and have created strategic moves form that might work in their favour in terms of game.

However, some school of thought believe the only difference between current and Ex-housemates is the amount of information at their disposal. One group of #bbnaija housemates know whose been Nominating them but the other doesn’t, one has established who the strongest contenders are in terms of numbers and the other hasn’t.

In terms of the Votes however, the power still lies in the jands of the viewers. Immunity is only awarded to Housemates that wins it fairly and Nominations are driven by the #bbnaija Housemates themselves.

The probability of two Housemates bringing biased scales to the House may be next to none, as each has to follow their strategy.

Looking at the #bbnaija show in its entirety and the fact that there are 3 views, Big brother’s, The Housemates’ and the Viewer’s, which all silently explains just how fitting the image of the eye logo is.

Seeing as perception is everything, the introduction of the new twist came like an unexpected multi-levelled storm, especially when looking at it from the perspective of the viewers.

However, the show thrives on twists and turns that cause a type of discomfort which causes fans to change and reposition themselves.

Talking about the plots, twists and turns; the constantly changing dynamics of the #bbnaija show are meant to leave even the viewer a little uncomfortable and lost for words.

Since the show is nearing its end, the show saw multiple pairings, changes and twists with the Head of House challenges, to mention a few. This new twist definitely promises a whole lot of drama, and viewers are in for a bumpy ride.

Cristiano Ronaldo Allows Me Take Free Kicks- Marco Asensio

Featured Image

Marco Asensio has revealed Cristiano Ronaldo has no problem allowing him to take free kicks around the penalty area sometimes.

During the first half of Sunday’s 6-3 La Liga victory at home to Girona, Ronaldo appeared to take a free kick just outside the penalty area, then stepped aside for Asensio to fire in a shot, which was saved.

Aseniso told Cadena Ser that if he was feeling confident then he got a chance to have a go, helped by his good relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo

“Cristiano took the first, for the second I had confidence to take it,” Asensio said. “I have a very good relationship with him, and he leaves it to me if I see a chance. Before the game there is always a plan, but if you are feeling confident and he leaves it to you [then you take it].”

Asked during the interview about Madrid’s reported interest in Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, Asensio dodged the question while not ruling out the possibility.

“We will see what happens with Neymar, it is not the moment to think about that now with such important things coming,” he said. “He is a great player, has shown that at Barcelona and PSG, and we will see if we are teammates at some point.”

#BBNaija 2018 Day 51: The Ninja Sessions

Featured Image

One aspect of the Big brother showz that not very many people have a good understanding of is the Ninjas and their roles; expecially in the #bbnaija show.

Although they are not Voted for and people only ever refer to them as ‘the ninjas’, they have so much access to the #bbnaija Housemates that isn’t limited to the physical realm. They see and can almost touch the feelings of the #bbnaija housemates and are almost always dragged down by their laziness and their pepper noodles almost always have them cringe even without tasting them.

Furthermore, the Tasks were always a truck load for the ninjas especially when there were 20 of the #bbnaija housemates. With only 9 of the housemates left, the work load of the ninjas seems to have doubled, literally.

Talking about Tasks, the ninjas have had the responsibility of warning Biggie about ‘colour coded, under 12’ puzzles quite a number of times because it was painful to watch the poor #bbnaija Housemates struggle for up to 10 minutes to put together puzzles that were actually borrowed Kindergarten and failing to go over lifeless logs.

However, the #bbnaija housemates always seem to do enough to surmount the tasks, especially with their acting and under par singing.

More so, the ninjas are alsp tasked with delivering platters to help the #bbnaija Housemates celebrate their victories. After an entire week of curbed eating, thanks to their Wager loss, the hunger of the housemates could be smelt and felt.

They were literally praying that Biggie unfreezes them so they could indulge and break their involuntary fast. The ninjas have also being previledged to witness a number of food brawls and meat counting spurts from the #bbnaija Housemates, an indication that they love food.

The job of the ninjas is not limited to thay of a lazy clock watcher or anything. It includes delivering birthday cakes and cards, silently enforcing the rule during arena Tasks, delivering briefs and all the logistics and mediating when unnecessary fights break out.

They also have the responsibility of escorting evictees who have had to say goodbye to their multimillion Naira dreams and go back to their realities.

The Ninjas not only see the #bbnaija housemates smile, celebrate victories, go hysterical, laze around in bed all day; and also watch them bring the action to viewers the world over.

12 Nigerian Soldiers Killed As Gunmen Attack Kaduna Military Base

Featured Image

No less than 12 soldiers have been killed with 9 others injured after some gunmen raided a military base in Kampanin Doka in Birnin Gwari local government area of Kaduna state.

It is understood that the incident took place in Doka and Maganda districts on the border between Kaduna and Zamfara state on Tuesday night.

The soldiers were said to be among a detachment of troops deployed to the village to ensure security for expatriates and others working on a new road linking Zamfara and Kaduna states through Dansadau-Dangulbi and Birnin Gwari.

TheCable quoted a source at the emirate council as saying that the attackers killed three soldiers in a hole and nine others elsewhere within the camp.

“We gathered that the soldiers had caught a thief in a village called Maganda in the area and were taking him back to their camp when some personnel of the Nigerian Police Force asked them to hand over the thief to them which the soldiers refused,” he said.

“The same police followed the soldiers to their camp in Kampanin Doka and again asked them to hand over the thief to them, but the soldiers still refused.

“Around 8pm on Tuesday, bandits attacked the soldier’s camp and killed three soldiers in a hole and nine others in a tent in the camp.”

Also, a source who is conversant with the development confided in PRNigeria that the well-armed bandits stormed a military post at Doka, an area between Funtua and Birnin Gwari and killed the soldiers on the spot and the bodies of the slain soldiers have been dumped in a mortuary.

The news outlet also gathered that the gunmen had earlier attacked Maganda District in the afternoon on a revenge mission over the killing of Buhari Tsoho where nine (9) members of security volunteer groups were critically injured.

After Maganda, the Armed bandits moved towards Kampanin Doka at the junction road leading to Gwaska and Dansadau and relaunched another attack leading to the death of the soldiers.

A leader of security volunteer groups in the town said that the community had notified Kaduna State government since last week of strange movements of bandits in Birnin Gwari through Funtua-Dansadau axis but no action was taken.

The source said: “With the killing of the bandit commander, Buhari Daji at Nabango area under Birnin-Gwari local government of Kaduna State just 16 kilometers to Dansadau in Zamfara state, there were strange movements of some of the armed men in the area.

“Suspicious of their movements with sophisticated weapons around Goron Dutse, Kuiga, Maganda, Unguwar Nachibi communities, we immediately sent alerts and warning signals to Kaduna state government to take action.

“In fact since the killing of Buharin Daji, kidnappers have been having field days along Birnin-Gwari-Funtua road on a daily basis. Some villagers being terrorized by armed bandits in Kirazo and Layin Mai Gwari had to relocate to Birnin-Gwari town.

“Surprisingly, shortly afterwards, some soldiers that were deployed for ‘Operation Karamin Goro’ in Birnin-Gwari were withdrawn, leaving behind few soldiers who stayed inside the town.

“We have been under intense fear of this armed group and have called for proactive government protection before the latest killing of soldiers”.

“I want to travel to Russia without this concern,” he told L’Equipe. “It’s not about knowing where I’ll play, but about having the peace of mind if I’m still in one place or another.

“It may be boring, but I have told my sister that, whether I stay or not, this will have to be resolved beforehand.

“What bothers me the most is that everyone asks me about this issue.”

Antoine Griezmann currently has a contract with Atletico Madrid until 2022, but has been linked with a move to Barcelona.

Mario Balotelli’s Agent, Mino Raiola, slams Italy Head Coach Lugi Di Biago For Squad Omission

Featured Image

Mino Raiola has criticised Italy coach Luigi Di Biagio’s decision to leave his client, Mario Balotelli out of the squad that will face Argentina and England in upcoming friendlies.

Mario Balotelli, 27, hasn’t played for his country since the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, when Italy lost 1-0 to Uruguay in their final group stage game.

Balotelli has enjoyed a renaissance since joining Nice in summer 2016, scoring 22 goals in 31 matches this campaign. However, Di Biagio did not see fit to give Balotelli another Italy call-up, saying that while his scoring rate was impressive, he still did not convince him for other reasons.

Raiola is not impressed, though, and told Radio 24 that Di Biagio has been a coward for not giving Balotelli a chance.

“If Di Biagio says that numbers don’t matter for an attacker, then that means there’s no way back into the national team for Mario,” Raiola said. “To have him in the national team, you need somebody with a strong character to manage him. [Gian Piero] Ventura wasn’t — in fact, he was totally confused, and Di Biagio is showing the same thing.

“This federation is disgusting, full of incompetent people. And don’t come to me talking about dressing room issues — the forwards are the only players who just have to score goals, and if he’s not wanted in the dressing room, they just have to say.

“We respect the coach, but he is not the problem. We’ve got a federation working without any plan; without any idea about the future. The national team should be represented by the best players and if the best players aren’t being called up, then we really don’t understand the criteria.”

Raiola said Di Biagio’s decision to call up 40-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon proves that different treatment is being reserved for different players.

“Buffon gets called up with reasoning which we don’t see applied to Balotelli — it’s almost discrimination and it’s sad,” Raiola said. “I’m surprised by Gigi’s call-up, although I do like him. But this is how Italy is. I’ve been trying to change things for 10 to 15 years without success.

“We put the national team into the hands of Ventura and then Di Biagio, who have not done anything at the highest level, but let’s see what the results are now. If we win, then they’ll be right because this is all that counts in Italy, even if I think this is wrong.”
