Pogba Hints On Leaving Manchester United

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has refused to rule out leaving the Premier League club in the near future as the unsettled player continues to dominate transfer discussions with Spanish media reports linking him with a move to Barcelona.

While United are adamant that Pogba will not be sold they are likely to face a mounting battle to keep their French World Cup winner, with the player understood to have set his sights firmly on a move to Spain.

The World Cup winner, who moved to Old Trafford in 2016 in an 89.3 million-pound ($115.4 million) deal from Juventus, has endured a strained relationship with United manager Jose Mourinho.

 Speaking to Sky Sports before France’s game with Germany in Munich on Thursday night, Pogba said:

“There was a lot of talk about it [a transfer] but it was like that. I am under contract at Manchester [United]. “My future right now is with Manchester. I have a contract. Currently, I play there, but who knows what will happen in the next couple of months.”

Mourinho has tried to diffuse the situation recently by saying he “couldn’t be happier” with Pogba.

The 25-year-old was made United captain for the opening two Premier League games this season in the absence of regular skipper Antonio Valencia and he scored two goals.

When Pogba was asked about his relation with Mourinho, he replied: “We have a coach-player relationship, it’s like that.

“One thing I can promise – I will always give it 100 percent, regardless for which coach. I give it my all for United always. That’s all I can say.”

Meanwhile, Pogba was named in the France team to play Germany in the UEFA Nations League later on Thursday.

APC Taunts PDP Over Plans To Harvest 6 Governors, 27 Lawmakers

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is hallucinating on its recent claims of defection.

Yesterday, the opposition party had in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said it has concluded discussions with six governors of the APC and 27 of the governing party’s members in the National Assembly to defect.

PDP Set To Harvest 6 APC Governors, 27 Lawmakers

However, in a statement issued today, the APC said it is now clear that the PDP has assumed the role of comic relief ahead of the 2019 General Elections.

The statement read: “While the PDP hallucinates on APC members’ defection to the PDP, the APC is consolidating to go into the 2019 General Elections as a smarter, more united and stronger political fighting force.

“While the PDP wallows it its cooked up tales on the state of the nation, the President Muhammadu Buhari administration-led APC administration is focused on bettering the lives of Nigerians, addressing infrastructure needs, revamping the economy, restoring our rank in the comity of progressive nations, confronting the challenges we face as a nation and generally repositioning the country in line with the Change Agenda promised Nigerians.”

Lagos Explains Removal Of Dowen College Footbridge After Lami Phillips’ Censure

Lagos Explains Removal Of Dowen College Footbridge After Lami Phillips’ Censure

The Lagos State Government on Wednesday reacted after concerns where raised in the media over the removal of the footbridge built by Dowen College along Bisola Durosinmi-Etti Road, Lekki Phase 1.

Lami Phillips Raises Alarm As Lagos Demolishes Pedestrian Bridge At Dowen College

Singer, Lami Phillips-Gbadamosi, had yesterday expressed her displeasure on the development via her Instagram page as she shared a video of government officials preparing to demolish the structure.

According to her, the school received a permit from the government to build the bridge, but the government “suddenly decided that this was going to be a 2-way road”.

Reacting to this in a statement, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Kehinde Bamigbetan, emphasised that the completion of the 2.1kilometres Trunk C dual carriageway, which the footbridge encroached on, was to decongest Admiralty Way and provide quicker access to the Ikoyi Link Bridge.

Mr Bamigbetan said the Lekki Peninsula Scheme 1 was conceived in the early 80s covering 1,046 hectares, stretching from the Lagos Lagoon to the Atlantic Ocean end of the Lekki-Epe Expressway cutting across the scheme.

“Due to the nature of the terrain and to reduce the incidence of flooding within the scheme; provision was made for the construction of primary drainage channel within the scheme. One of the primary drainage channel is along the Bisola Durosinmi-Etti Road which cuts across the scheme from the main entrance, Lekki Epe Expressway through the northern portion of the scheme to the Freedom Way.

“That Bisola Durosinmi Etti road is a dual-carriage way but one lane of the broad was constructed in the late 90’s while the other lane was not done due to paucity of funds then; however overtime, various forms of illegal development activities were identified within the unconstructed other lane as well as the setback abutting the primary drainage channel. These include erection of wire mesh fences, construction of car parks, shanties within the setbacks, development of outdoor bars and construction of footbridges over the open drainage channel,” he said.

Addressing the history of encroachment, the commissioner said an agency of the government, the New Towns Development Authority (NTDA) noticed the illegal construction of a footbridge by Dowen College in 2013 and promptly issued a contravention notice to the school on January 13, 2013 to stop it but the management defied the directive.

“Similar notices by other government agencies under the Ministry of Physical Planning & Urban Development were blatantly ignored with arrogant defiance. Rather than comply, Dowen College wrote letters of appeals seeking a concession to be allowed to sustain its illegality by authorising its encroachment of the government’s master plan. This was not acceptable and at no time did government permit the illegal construction,” Mr Bamigbetan said.

He said the government asked Dowen College to remove the offending structure to facilitate the completion of the dual carriageway and was compelled to spend public funds to do so when the school refused.

Varane Not Sidetracked By Ballon d’Or

Featured Image

Raphael Varane says he is not worried about who will claim the ballon d’or, despite having a fine season himself.

The France international is in contention for the award after winning the UCL and the World Cup last season.

However, Varane is more focused on team success and not individual success, despite having a brilliant 2017-18.

“I’m glad you told me about it, but it’s not a topic of debate within the group,” Varane told a news conference ahead of France’s Nations League meeting with Germany.

“It’s an individual reward. We play a collective sport. It showcases the work done, but it’s a personal one.

“It’s not an objective and if I don’t win it, it won’t be a disappointment. It’s true that last season was exceptional. It will be difficult to do better, unless I put in 40 goals.

“Other players are less mentioned but have been very successful, like [N’Golo] Kante or [Paul] Pogba.”

Either Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi have won the Ballon d’Or the past 10 years.

Real Madrid fullback, Marcelo has dismissed rumors he could join Juventus, insisting he will retire with Los Blancos.

Reports have it that Juventus, who lured Ronaldo to the Serie A, are interested in the Brazilian.

However, Marcelo has now reiterated his desire to retire at Real Madrid, a club he has won three consecutive Champions League.

“It’s an element which is hardly worth discussing. I’m very happy at Real Madrid, it’s my home and I’ve got many years left on my contract,” Marcelo told Real Madrid TV .

“I’m very happy here, it’s the best club in the world and I always want to play for the very best.

“It’s good to talk about it because there are always rumours and it’s tough for me to have to continually show I want to be here and can play here. I always give it my best to be at the best club in the world.

“I just keep doing my job. I have to show what I can do every year.

 

“I enjoy every moment of playing for Real Madrid and naturally, I give it everything I’ve got. I do all I can to make sure the fans enjoy the football and that Madrid are always at the top, which is where they belong.

 

“I want to be at Madrid for many years. I’m very calm about it all and I want to continue at Real Madrid. Lots of people hide behind social media to spread ridiculous rumours and cause problems where they don’t exist.

“I’m as hungry as when I was 18 years old. I’ll be here until the end.”

Madrid are off to a fine start to thier La Liga season with three wins from three.

Trippier: England Must Start Beating Big Countries

Featured Image

England defender, Kieran Trippier says to prove their World Cup run was no fluke, the Three Lions must start beating big names like Spain.

England crashed out in the semi finals of the World Cup, but did so by beating Tunisia, Panama and Sweden and needed a penalty shootout to beat Colombia.

The Three Lions will face Spain in the Nations League on Tuesday and Trippier is eager for a win.

“You need to beat the best and Spain are one of the best in the world,” he said. “In the World Cup, you can only play who you are drawn against. Obviously, Spain will be a big test and we want to play the likes of them to show that we are here and we are ready.

“We want to beat these teams, we want to beat the best and Saturday will be no different. So it’s an exciting one and we are all really looking forward to it, but we need to beat these sorts of teams if we want to be up there. Come Saturday, we’ll be ready and give everything to do that.”

“We know the quality we have got in our dressing room and on our day we can beat anyone.”

“The progress and the journey that we went on was fantastic but obviously we were disappointed to get beaten in the semi-final, given the way we started. But we overcame so many obstacles in that tournament and we have got to be proud of ourselves. The nation and the players are back,” he said.

 

“We’ve set the bar high at the World Cup with how well we did as a team and obviously we go into every tournament wanting to win it.

“Every opportunity we get, we always try to do the best we can for our fans and ourselves and the tournament in two years will be no different. If we get there, which we will do, we will go there wanting to win it.”

After facing Spain on Saturday, England host Switzerland in a friendly on Tuesday

Giroud: Ballon d’Or Should Go To Modric Or A Frenchman

Featured Image

Olivier Giroud has dismissed the importance of the FIFA Best Man award, but expects the Ballon d’Or to go to either Modric or a Frenchman.

FIFA drafted Cristiano Ronaldo, Mohamed Salah and Luka Modric as their best three, leaving out Messi and any member of the 2018 World Cup winning France squad.

Many have expressed their shock at this, with Giroud adding his voice.

Giroud was stunned, yet he does not feel FIFA’s award has any relevance in football, with the Ballon d’Or the main prize in his eyes.

“It is very surprising, but, to be honest, I do not attach importance to this trophy,” Giroud told Le Parisien . “I’m only interested in the Ballon d’Or.

“It must be a Frenchman or Modric [who wins the Ballon d’Or]. If I could vote, I know which of my partners I would choose, but I will not tell you.”

When asked if he is continuously surprised by Mbappe, Giroud said: “How can you not be?

“He is breathtaking with his talent and maturity. One wonders where he will stop.

“At the same age, I have never met a boy so strong. It’s never been seen since, perhaps, Thierry Henry.”

Ceballos: I Would Have Left If Zidane Stayed

Featured Image

Dani Ceballos states he would have left Real Madrid, had Zinedine Zidane stayed on as head coach.

The 22-year-old was signed to Real Madrid from Real Betis for a reported fee of €18 million, but saw only four starts under the French manager.

However, with Lopetegui at the helm, Ceballos has played three of four competitive Madrid games and has been called up to the Spain squad for the first time.

“It’s something for him to explain, why I didn’t get opportunities,” he told  Radio Marca when asked about Zidane. “I worked, I tried to make [his decisions] difficult for him, but a moment comes when you see it’s impossible.

“I scored two goals in Vitoria and the next game I played one minute against Dortmund. When you spend weeks not feeling important, it’s more difficult.

“There was a moment in which I gave the season up. We were 15 points [off the top] in La Liga and only had the Champions League left, but I didn’t enter into the dynamic.

“I hired a personal trainer in January, because I wasn’t playing Wednesday and Sunday and I lost that intensity. I was looking to be fit for pre-season.

“If Zidane had continued, I would obviously have looked for an exit, but everything was different with Julen’s arrival.”

“You can never give up because my objective is to succeed at Real Madrid, as I said. Now, I try to give back to the fans what they didn’t see from me,” he said.

“It’s not a grudge. I came having had a great Euro Under-21 tournament, being the best player, to being ostracised right from the start…

“Last year was not a good year for me but, as a footballer, he’s given me maturity. He was always clear with me and I don’t hold a grudge.

“I followed him from when I was little and he was always a star wherever he played, so maybe he didn’t know how it feels for a player to be on the bench.

“It will also help in the future, so I don’t make the mistakes he made here.”
