Everton Midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson Offers Update On His Injury

Featured Image

Gylfi Sigurdsson has revealed that he is currently making good enough progress in his recovery from a knee injury.

Gylfi Sigurdsson suffered the setback in a Premier League fixture with Brighton, and the Iceland international faces a race against time to be fit for this summer’s World Cup.

However, the playmaker has suggested that he is optimistic about his rehabilitation ahead of being reassessed next week.

The 28-year-old told the club’s official website: “It is going well and I am steadily making progress each day. I have not had any setbacks, I am off the crutches and out of the brace and almost back to walking normally.

“I have to get through a lot of exercises with the physios and on the machines – and the hands-on treatment as well. Then there is work in the pool and in the gym. Everything I have been doing is helping me a lot and I am feeling the benefit of it. The medical team have been really good and kept me busy in the past few weeks, they want to get the work in.

“We have been working on getting the swelling down and the fluid out of the knee – and getting some movement back into the knee. I am seeing the specialist in London next Tuesday and he will reassess me – and we will take it from there.”

Mohamed Salah’s Agent Speaks Out On Liverpool Transfer Stories

Featured Image

Mohamed Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas Issa has appeared to dismiss reports that his client has told friends that he will remain at Liverpool next season.

Mohamed Salah has been in an amazing form during his first year at Anfield, scoring 36 goals in all competitions.

Salah’s performances in front of goal have led to reports linking the attacker to various other clubs, including Real Madrid.

Over the weekend, though, The Mirror claimed that the 25-year-old has privately informed friends that he is not going anywhere this summer and that he is on the verge of signing a new deal at the Merseyside outfit.

Salah’s agent appears to have denied these reports by tweeting: “We don’t discuss career plans ‘with friends’.”

On Sunday, Issa wrote on Twitter: “I’m considering calling out #FakeNews when it emanates from agencies that are supposed to be at least half decent.”

Alexandre Lacazette Returns To Arsenal Training After Recovering From Injury

Featured Image

Arsenal have been handed a boost after striker Alexandre Lacazette made a return to training.

Alexandre Lacazette was forced to undergo knee surgery last month, with it being suggested that the forward would be sidelined for around six weeks.

The French international is nearing the end of that six-week timeframe, but the 26-year-old has been pictured at the North London outfit’s training ground.

In Lacazette’s absence Arsenal have been limited to only one senior striker available for the Europa League, Danny Welbeck, but Arsene Wenger will be encouraged to see the former Lyon forward back on the training pitch well ahead of next Thursday’s quarter-final first leg against CSKA Moscow.

Lacazette was among a clutch of the Arsenal squad not way with their international teams who trained this morning at London Colney, including Aaron Ramsey.

Wales Head Coach Ryan Giggs Defends Gareth Bale’s Display Vs Uruguay

Featured Image

Wales manager Ryan Giggs has insisted that Gareth Bale “remained a threat” throughout the China Cup final with Uruguay.

Gareth Bale scored a hat-trick in last week’s 6-0 win over China, but was unable to get on the scoresheet as the Dragons succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Uruguay on Monday.

The forward struggled to make a constant impact against the South Americans, but Giggs has moved to defend his key man.

After the match, Giggs told reporters: “The pitch had a big part to play in it as it wasn’t ideal for dribbling or sticking the pass in.

“When Gareth gets the ball of course he is going to have players around him, they’re not just going to let him get it.

“They recognise the quality he’s got and make it difficult for him. But I thought he was a threat all night.”

Manchester United Youngster Tosin Kehinde Decides To Play For Nigeria

Featured Image

Manchester United midfielder Tosin Kehinde seems to have chosen to represent the Nigeria national team.

Tosin Kehinde, 19, was born in Lagos but is eligible to play for England. However, Kehinde was photographed shaking hands with Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr ahead of their London friendly with Serbia on Tuesday night.

Kehinde expressed his gratitude to his Nigerian supporters last month and felt confident he was close to making his United senior debut.

“It feels good to have that kind of support back home,” he said. “I’ve come close on occasion. All I need to do is continue to work hard.

“Of course I’d be elated to play at the World Cup. It’s every footballers dream. Playing at any level for Nigeria would bring me pride. But I believe in myself enough to know I can bring something great to the Super Eagles first team.”

Kehinde trained with the United first-team earlier this season and has started 15 times for the Under-23s in the Premier League 2. His strike at Chelsea in September was nominated for the club’s goal of the month competition.

Liverpool Capable Of Winning The UEFA Champions League This Season- Lothar Matthaus

Featured Image

Former Germany and Bayern Munich captain Lothar Matthaus has insisted that Liverpool are capable of winning the Champions League this season.

Liverpool are the leading scorers in this season’s competition, but have been drawn against Manchester City in the quarter-finals and will need to pull off an upset against Pep Guardiola’s side if they are to reach the last four.

City have dominated domestically this season, but Liverpool are the only team to have beaten them in the Premier League and Matthaus believes that manager Jurgen Klopp is capable of masterminding another victory before launching a title challenge next term.

“Maybe City has more money but I know the mentality of Klopp, I know the mentality of his team. They work very hard. Liverpool has the mentality and an atmosphere in the ground that is similar to Dortmund. He is a powerful coach. He can get people to take to him – the players and the fans. He has to find one or two more players, especially in the defence to be better in the competition,” Matthaus told reporters.

“Like Guardiola in his first season he had a very good offence then he invested a lot of money in the defence, and you see the difference now – they are 15 or 16 points ahead of Man United. That is a lot. That is the reason [Guardiola] bought many players in the defence, they are much better now. City are maybe one step higher than all the other teams in England at the moment but for sure other teams will invest and find the right players.

“I know Jurgen Klopp knows exactly which player he needs. Some people were shaking their heads at £75m for a defender (Virgil van Dijk) but this £75m at the end shows the defence is a lot better. He didn’t change his style too much. He is working very hard, his team is always ready to fight for 90 minutes, they are in good condition, he works very hard. He finds the right players, especially in the offence, who can make the difference on the highest level.

“Liverpool is not afraid to play against Manchester City. They showed weeks ago how you can win against Manchester City. They have a good offence, they work better in the defence and this is the key to win titles. He has done a very good job. I was believing from the beginning that he and Liverpool have a very good relationship. You can see that in the good results, the good games and he has bought the right players. For me it is a team that can win the Champions League in two months in Kiev.”

Sergio Aguero Reveals He Still Plans To Leave Manchester City In 2020

Featured Image

Sergio Aguero has revealed that he is still planning to return to his boyhood club Independiente del Valle before the end of his career.

Sergio Aguero has enjoyed a glittering spell at Manchester City, scoring 199 goals in 290 appearances in all competitions since 2011, and the 29-year-old looks likely to remain at the Premier League leaders until at least 2020.

However, the Argentine remains keen on a return back home to play for Independiente del Valle, rather than taking his spell at City into a 10th campaign.

Aguero told Fox Sports Argentina: “I always said that I would like to return to Independiente when my contract ends with City, which is in 2020.

“I am not thinking about that now. I am focused on finishing the season well and reaching the World Cup.”

Nigeria Confirms Ceasefire Talks With Boko Haram

Featured Image

The federal government has confirmed that it is in talks with the Islamist terror group, Boko Haram, on a possible ceasefire, with the ultimate aim of securing a permanent cessation of hostilities.

The talks on a ceasefire was made known by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed in an email to Reuters on Sunday, outlining the background to the release of more than 104 schoolgirls returned last week by the group after their kidnapping on February 19 from Government Girls’ Science and Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi, Yobe.

Lai Mohammed

The minister’s revelation on the ceasefire talks came on the heels of the open letter written by civil society group, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), to the president urging him to drop the proposed policy to grant amnesty to members of Boko Haram.

“Unknown to many, we have been in wider cessation-of-hostility talks with the insurgents for some time now,” said Mohammed. “We were able to leverage on the wider talks when the Dapchi girls were abducted.”

Mohammed said the week-long ceasefire, starting on March 19, had been agreed to enable the group to drop off the girls.

FG Seeks For Withdrawal Of PDP’s Certificate Of Registration

This is the first time in years the government has said it is talking to Boko Haram about a ceasefire in an insurgency that has killed tens of thousands of people and ravaged the North-east of Africa’s biggest economy.

Boko Haram aims to create an Islamic state. Its campaign has spread to neighboring Chad, Cameroon and Niger but the group has been severely weakened in recent years by regional military pressure and it has lost most of the territory it once held.

Antoine Griezmann Speaks About Manchester United In An Interview

Featured Image

Antoine Griezmann was quick to quell suggestions he wants to join Manchester United in an interview with France teammate Paul Pogba on Sunday night.

Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba, who are currently together on international duty, were filmed interviewing each other by Canal Football Club at the French national team’s Clairefontaine base last week.

“If we could have this every day,” Pogba began before Griezmann responded.

“That would be beautiful to play alongside you and win trophies,” the Atletico Madrid forward said. Mindful of his remark, Griezmann then added: “But be careful! That doesn’t mean I want to go to Manchester United.”

Jurgen Klopp Is Being Judged Differently At Liverpool- Brendan Rodgers

Featured Image

Brendan Rodgers has claimed that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp would face more questions over his managerial ability if he was British.

Brendan Rodgers was in charge of Liverpool during their most recent title challenge in 2013-14, falling just short

However, the Northern Irishman has rejected suggestions that his side were a one-man team, and believes that being British brings with it more criticism when a team is performing well.

“People said, ‘Well, he had Luis Suarez’. I thought that was very discourteous, mainly to the rest of the players, because we had created a team and we had one team and it had one brain,” Rodgers told The Mail.

“Luis was the focal point of it but he will tell you himself that he couldn’t have done that without the adjustments of the others.

“If you equate what was said about me with what might be said about a foreign coach, then as an example Mauricio Pochettino has done a great job at Tottenham but they probably wouldn’t say, ‘It’s down to Harry Kane’. And it is the same with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool with the contribution of Mo Salah. But for a British coach, there always has to be a catch.”

Report: Stefan De Vrij Agrees To Join Inter Milan At The End Of The Season

Featured Image

Lazio defender Stefan de Vrij has reportedly opted to join Inter Milan.

Stefan de Vrij is available on a free transfer at the end of this season after confirming that he will not sign a new contract at Lazio , leading to a rush from a number of top European clubs for his signature.

Liverpool were understood to be keen to pair De Vrij with his international teammate Virgil van Dijk at the heart of their defence, whereas Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho had considered him as an option in his expected defensive overhaul.

Man City were also looking at the Dutchman as further cover for the injury-prone Vincent Kompany, while Barcelona were among the other clubs to have been credited with an interest.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport claims that De Vrij has instead decided to stay in Italy and will join Inter when his contract officially expires this summer.

Gazzetta claim the pursuit of De Vrij started a year ago and that Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio has never lost sight of the defender.

De Vrij will earn just over £70,000 a week in Milan on a five-year contract that is yet to be signed.

Lagosians To Experience Blackout As TCN Announces Sub-Station Shutdown

Featured Image

Some residents of Lagos, particularly in Itire and its environs, may experience a total blackout as the Management of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has announced a four-hour power outage due to routine maintenance.

It was gathered that the maintenance which would necessitate the power outage is expected to be carried out on equipment at the Itire 132KV Transmission Sub-Station in Lagos on March 27.

The General Manager (Public Affairs) of TCN, Mrs. Ndidi Mbah, who made this known in a statement in Lagos on Sunday, stated that the scheduled maintenance is necessary for the sub-station to maintain effective supply of electricity to the areas concerned.

In the statement, she explained that the proposed maintenance would disrupt 34 megawatts of electricity supply to customers around Ago, Okota, Ilasamaja, Ijesha, Itire and their environs.

Her words: “The planned outage will enable TCN engineers from the Akangba sub-regional office in Surulere to carry out routine maintenance work on all the equipment at its Itire Transmission Sub-Station.

“The maintenance will also cover a 132KV insulated indoor switchyard for improved electricity supply to customers in the above-mentioned areas.

“TCN, therefore, appeals to customers that take supply from distribution load centres covering the areas mentioned above, to bear with it for four hours on Tuesday, March 27.

“The management of TCN apologises for the inconveniences that may result from the temporary disruption of supply to customers within the affected areas.

“TCN promises to continue upgrading and maintaining its equipment to serve Nigerians better, in line with the Federal Government’s strategy on incremental power supply to the people.”

The Atletico Madrid man has been linked with a move to Barcelona, and the France international is keen to make a decision before the World Cup.

“My future will be decided before the World Cup, I want to go to Russia with a clear mind, I think that’s what everybody wants, it’s not so much the question of where I’ll play, which may be boring, but about having the peace of mind if I’m still in one place or another,” he said.

“I’ve told my sister that, whether I stay or not, I’ll have to decide before (in reference to the World Cup).”

“If we could have this every day,” Pogba said on Canal+ as the pair interviewed each other.

Griezmann responded: “It would be nice.

“But beware, that doesn’t mean I want to go to Manchester United.”

Tawiyah further said that males and females, from the ages of 18 to 45, who have good health status, can participate in the contest.

According to him, the winner will receive a brand new SUV, as well as the first ever medal of resilience to be awarded by a top ranking officer in the Nigerian Army.

“This competition is expected to identify resilient young men and women,” he said.

“150 young Nigerians will stand literally in an open space all day, all night, come rain come shine, for a minimum of five days and maximum of seven days.

“This will be until the toughest and most resilient of them all emerges as the Last Man Standing 2018.

“During the competition, contestants can walk around within the arena, dance, have conversations with fellow contestants.
