Harry Kane An Easy Target For Critics – Mauricio Pochettino

Featured Image

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has defended the form of his striker Harry Kane and insists that the he “is an easy target” for critics.

Harry Kane has been unable in his last four appearances for club and country, prompting concerns of a possible World Cup hangover.

Kane won the Golden Boot at the World Cup with six goals, but he had just three weeks’ rest before returning to club action and has been used heavily since then.

Mauricio Pochettino has already attempted to play down fatigue concerns, however, and the Argentinian is unwilling to criticise Kane for his barren run.

“Harry is an easy target because it’s easy when he’s not scoring to start to talk about him,” he told reporters ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Inter Milan in the Champions League.

“But Harry, after four years at the club, there are a lot of things to say thank you to him. Of course he needs to improve, but the team needs to improve. But it’s easy to blame Harry, it’s an easy judgement.”

Justin Bieber And Hailey Baldwin Are Married?

Featured Image

It seems Canadian singer, Justin Bieber, 24, and US model, Hailey Baldwin, 21, have secretly gotten married!

Alec Baldwin, Hailey’s uncle, told People on Monday, September 17, at the 2018 Emmy Awards that the couple “just went off and got married. They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone.”

The 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live star who brought this revelation to light in a red carpet interview before the Emmy awards in Los Angeles, also told Access “they just went off and got married and I don’t know what the deal is”.

“We text Hailey every now and then.We met him one time”.

The model previously denied that she tied the knot with Bieber after People reported that the two said “I do” at a New York City city clerk’s office on Thursday. 

The duo were spotted at the marriage bureau at a courthouse in New York City last Thursday, prompting the model to deny wedding rumours.

“I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!” she wrote on Twitter on Friday in a since-deleted tweet. 

But an insider told People last week that the couple “went ahead and did it without listening to anyone”.

“They’re going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love,” the source added.

Meanwhile, when asked what advice he would give his new nephew-in-law, the 60-year-old star, whose brother is Hailey’s father Stephen, said: “Keep working … don’t stop working”.

There are also other top media outlets that are saying otherwise – even TMZ maintained on Tuesday that the couple are not married.

Mesut Ozil’s Agent Labels Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller and Toni Kroos ‘Naive’ Over Racism Claims

Featured Image

Mesut Ozil’s agent Erkut Sogut has hit out at Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller and Toni Kroos

Erkut Sogut called their response to Mesut Ozil’s withdrawal from the Germany national team “either naive or scheming.”

The Germany internationals had commented on Ozil’s decision to retire from international football in the wake of the controversy surrounding a photo taken with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan in May.

Citing racism at the top of the German FA and in parts of the German society, Ozil announced his retirement over three statements published on social media in July, weeks after the national team left the World Cup after the group stages.

Madrid midfielder Kroos told Bild that the statement included a lot of nonsense, while Neuer said in his comments that Germany players must be “proud” again and Muller said “there can be no talk of racism in sports and in the national team.”

Neuer indirectly accuses Ozil of not having worn the Germany jersey with pride. That’s unacceptable,” Sogut told 11 Freunde magazine. “Muller did not get the discussion. And Kroos as a seasoned national team player, should explain what he means by ‘nonsense.’”

Describing the comments as “disappointing and out of place,” Sogut added: “There are only two explanations for the trio’s comments: They are either naive or scheming.”

Anger Was Behind My Stunning UEFA Champions League Final Goal – Gareth Bale

Featured Image

Gareth Bale has revealed anger at being left out of Real Madrid’s starting XI for the Champions League final against Liverpool helped fuel the stunning overhead kick that set them on the path to a 3-1 victory.

Gareth Bale was sent on by then coach Zinedine Zidane with the score at 1-1 after 61 minutes, beating Liverpool keeper Loris Karius with his sensational strike three minutes later.

Asked about his feelings in the moments before the goal, he said: “Angry — quite angry, to be honest. Obviously, I felt I deserved to start the game. I’d been scoring goals. So yeah, I suppose it was hard to put the anger aside.”

Bale said he had decided to attempt the overhead after realising that Liverpool defenders would soon crowd him out.

“You know you are in a situation where, if you’re going to get closed down, you have to try something,” he said. “You certainly don’t really think about looking stupid.

“If you don’t try things, things never happen. If you have time to think about it, it doesn’t come off. I knew exactly where the ball went, and you can see in the video my head turns to look exactly where the ball is going. As soon as I hit it, I knew it was good.”

Bale voiced sympathy for Karius, whose mistake had led to the first Madrid goal and who let a speculative long-range effort from Bale through his grasp late on to seal Madrid’s win.

“I always try to put a bit of wobble on the ball,” he said. “You try to make it more difficult because if it doesn’t go in the corner I always give them a problem if it’s right down their throat.

Mohamed Salah Confident Liverpool Can Win The UEFA Champions League And Premier League This Season

Featured Image

Mohamed Salah has insisted that Liverpool are capable of winning both the Premier League and Champions League this season.

Liverpool’s league form suffered as a result of their run in the UEFA Champions League

Mohamed Salah is upbeat about Liverpool’s ability to juggle European and domestic commitments over the next eight months, however, with neither competition taking priority over the other.

“Last season we knocked out Manchester City, then Roma, who had just beaten Barca in the quarter-finals. Each time, they were incredible games,” he told France Football ahead of his side’s Group C opener against Paris Saint-Germain.

“We played against teams challenging for the title and we still managed to reach the final, so of course we can do it again. I’m sure of it. We can even win both, the Champions League and the Premier League. I don’t want us to put pressure on ourselves, but yes, everything is possible.

“It’s a good draw with some good teams. PSG have some very good individuals and a great team. I’m looking forward to playing them. I’m looking forward to a very enjoyable and intense encounter.”

Ivan Gazidis Leaving Arsenal To Join Italian Club AC Milan

Featured Image

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis will leave the club at the end of October to join AC Milan.

Ivan Gazidis has been at Arsenal for the last 10 years, and was responsible for replacing the club’s long-serving manager Arsene Wenger with Unai Emery ahead of the 2018-19 season

The 53-year-old is stepping away from his role at the Emirates Stadium to take up a new role in Italy on December 1.

Gazidis will be replaced by head of football relations Raul Sanllehi and chief commercial officer Vinai Venkatesham.

“For the last 10 years I have been privileged to dedicate myself to this great club. Arsenal is entering a new chapter and I have done everything I can to ensure that it is strongly placed to take on that challenge. This includes world-class facilities and outstanding leaders in every sector who carry the values of the club, including, of course, Unai Emery, Raul Sanllehi and Vinai Venkatesham in whom I have enormous faith,” read a statement from Gazidis on Arsenal’s official website.

“We have rebuilt the off-field capability of the club, which is necessary for prolonged success in modern football, we have recently concluded new primary partnership deals that, together with the new league broadcast deals, secure our medium term financial future, we have updated our stadium and rebuilt our training facilities so that they are now world class and we have transitioned to a new football structure that is capable of taking the club confidently into the future.

“I am proud to say we have done this while building on the club’s progressive social values, leading the way on the women’s game as well as diversity and inclusion and establishing The Arsenal Foundation, which supports these values around the world in difficult places such as Iraq and Jordan and complements our extraordinary work in our local community. This will remain central to the club’s philosophy.

“Given this platform, I know many will think this is a strange time to be leaving but I believe it is the right time for me and for the club. Change and succession is not only inevitable for a club like Arsenal, it is necessary if it is continually to keep moving forward. One of my primary responsibilities as chief executive has been to make sure that there is good succession planning in every position in the club, including my own.”

Babachir Lawal Reveals He Now Makes Half A Billion Compared To N930,000 Monthly As SGF

Babachir Lawal Reveals He Now Makes Half A Billion Compared To N930,000 Monthly As SGF

A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, has bragged that he’s become a more successful businessman ever since he was dismissed over a corruption scandal.

Lawal was sacked in October last year for allegedly diverting funds meant for people displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency.

But speaking on Monday with Abuja reporters, the former SGF said he made more than he had made as the SGF in one year.

He said: “Let me shock you, before I came into government, I have been in business, I was a very successful businessman,” he said.

“I am a world-renowned IT consultant and I have a very large farm, spanning over 1,000 hectares, which I abandoned to join governance.

“I was earning N930, 000 monthly as the SGF, now that I have returned to my farm and reactivated it after my sack, I now have 4,000 hectares under cultivation.

“Last year, I earned close to half a billion naira from my farm proceeds, I have a cattle ranch that I am developing gradually and I am back to IT consultancy, life is now good.

“Everything that happened to a man is for his own good; my sack I would say is rather a blessing in disguise.

“Let me tell you, nothing happened to me. Right from the beginning of the saga, I knew that the whole thing was fabricated and that was why I did not give any damn from the beginning.

“The reason some people don’t like me is that I am so confident of myself. Did you hear me defend myself at that time, I didn’t do it and I will not do it because I know that they are fabricated.”

Bishop Says You’re Committing Sin If You Charge Phones In Church

A bishop, Michael Osagie, the General Overseer of Bible Believers Ministry, says fighting over charging points in church is a sin “and against the laws of the church’’.

Mr Michael made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday at the Bible Believers Ministry in Oluku, Benin.

He condemned the attitude of charging phones, note pads, touch lights amongst others, while church service was going, saying it was a major distraction to the preacher.

“Sometimes when I preach on the altar, I get distracted, because I see some of my members fighting over charging points.

“Am I amazed how believers of the gospel take the things of the Lord these days,’’ he said.

The cleric pleaded with the Edo government and the Benin Electricity Distribution Company to look into the poor power supply in the state with the view of improving it.

Reacting to the preacher’s insinuation, Ruth Ikoko, an usher of the church said that she was guilty of the sin as her area had serious electricity problem.

She said that she came to church regularly to charge her phone and to also worship the Lord.

Ms Ikoko expressed the hope that the power situation would improve in her area so that she would stop charging her phone in the church. (NAN)

Pearce: Hazard Can Score 40 Goals With City Or Liverpool

Featured Image

Former England international, Stuart Pearce believes Eden Hazard can score 40 goals a season, if he plays for City or Liverpool.

The Chelsea winger has already scored five goals this season already, with Sarri charging him to go for the golden boot.

However, Pearce does not think Hazard can achieve that feat at a club like Chelsea.

“I’m not sure Chelsea will dominate the league enough to create enough chances for Hazard to get 40 goals, because of Liverpool and Manchester City,” he told Sky Sports.

“Put him in the Liverpool and Manchester City team at this moment in time and I think he might be able to.”

Pearce is surprised that Hazard, who has been repeatedly linked to Real Madrid, has not yet been lured away from the Stamford Bridge side.

“He’s a low-maintenance footballer, I think, Chelsea have done really well to hang onto him for the past couple of years,” he said.

 

“I would have thought other clubs might have put money down to take Hazard away from them – he’s the one player that gives Chelsea potential championship-winning ability.

“He’s got so much ability, and works hard for the team as well, when you throw that in the mix, he’s one of these that you need to keep educating, keep testing him in regards to whether you can improve him, but also make sure you tell him how well he is doing.”

Salah: I Fell In Love With Liverpool On FIFA

Featured Image

Mohamed Salah has revealed that his love for Liverpool started from playing FIFA video games.

The Egypt international winger joined the EPL club from Roma last season and has impressed with the Merseyside club.

Salah helped Liverpool to the final of the UCL last season, and has led them to third on the table, breaking records on the way.

“When I played FIFA or another video game, I always took Liverpool in 2005,” he told France Football, reflecting upon the team that won the Champions League by coming back from a 3-0 half-time deficit against AC Milan in Istanbul.

“I would always put Steven Gerrard in the No.10 because he had an amazing shot! Then, I’d put Jerzy Dudek in goal, and the central defenders would be Jamie Carragher and Sami Hyypia. But I played with Liverpool on my console well before 2005.”

Salah admitted that it did not take long for him to feel at home in Liverpool, with the supporters playing a key role in this.

“One or two months after I arrived at the club, I heard them sing my song and it was so special,” he said. “That’s when I really felt the love and the fervour towards me. The fans are simply the best.”

Klopp: Liverpool Just Like A Virgin Ahead Of PSG Game

Featured Image

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will feel like they are virgins when they are facing PSG in the UCL on Tuesday.

The Reds will host the Ligue 1 giants at Anfield, their first match since the loss to Madrid in the final.

“No damage. No, absolutely not,” he told reporters when asked if his side had been damaged by the upset against Madrid.

“I think we got a lot of respect because of the way we played last season and I think everyone who saw the final saw that we could have won it against a side in a completely different moment.

“They see the games we played. They saw Manchester City, they saw Rome, they saw Porto. They saw so many games which we played in a really good way. There was a lot of respect.

“It is a nice experience, it is a nice memory, but pretty sure it will help us in the moment, all that stuff, but at the end we have to start new – using the experience but not relying on it.

“The best way is when you are experienced you use your new knowledge and start again – like a virgin if you want.”

And although Klopp recognises their opponents’ quality, he is sure his team can be strong and bold.

“I love my players, all of them, I wouldn’t change them but I watched Paris, I watched them last year and I watched them this year, and it is impressive,” said Klopp.

“They are good, really good, not only for Paris, but Kylian Mbappe, come on, what a World Cup he played!

“And Neymar we all know about his quality. Angel Di Maria, maybe he didn’t have the best time at Man United but all the rest of his career was outstanding. Cavani, also an outstanding goal-scorer.

“In the preparation, I have to make sure that we know about it. I know we are quite good but we have to respect them without getting afraid of them.”

Ferdinand: Pogba Must Learn From Ronaldo

Featured Image

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has urged Paul Pogba to use Cristiano Ronaldo as an example.

The France international has been criticised repeatedly for a lack of closure to his game, with many believing he cares more about his look.

The Portuguese is, according to Ferdinand, the example that Pogba must now follow.

“Cristiano came as what we called a showpony, all the stepovers, looking good for the fans,” he told ESPN. “He left the best player in the world, who lived and died by the end product. Goals and assists.

“But that’s down to intelligence, Ronaldo worked it out, actually: ‘That’s good that the people love me for that, but what’s going to get me there, to the top of the mountain. I need to adjust my game.’ And he left as the best player in the world.

“So Paul Pogba can look at that as something to learn from there as well. What do I really need to do to make myself the best midfielder on this planet?

“He’s got an ego, that’s not hard to see on social media, this boy’s got an ego, wants to be looked at and talked about as the best player. There’s a hunger and desire for that, with that comes a work ethic.”

“I think that’s been the problem so far, they’ve not been able to work out what’s best for Paul Pogba in the Man United team,” the 2008 Champions League winner said. “Should he be playing in a deeper, reserved position? Should he be playing on the edge of all the attacks, assisting, providing chances, etc? Where is he best in this team?”

Dani Alves: Madrid Are More Dangerous Without Ronaldo

Featured Image

Dani Alves believes the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo from the Real Madrid team makes Los Blancos a more dangerous side.

The former Madrid man is aiming for a fourth consecutive Champions League, after winning three in a row with Madrid.

Losing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has not hurt Los Blancos, though, according to Alves.

“I think that, contrary to what everybody else says, Madrid are more of a team without Cristiano, and now it’s a little more difficult than it was before – at least because of how I see football and my concept of this game,” he explained to Marca.

“Though it’s obvious that him leaving is a brutal loss, Madrid are Madrid.”

The 35-year-old knows exactly why Ronaldo felt he needed to move on, though.

“People want challenges, to continue feeling alive and for that reason it doesn’t surprise me,” he explained.

“He had been there for a while, he had done great things with Real Madrid and he has decided to try other things.

“I did when I was at Barcelona and the true fighters need new challenges and don’t need comfort.

“I think that, like me at Barcelona, he was very comfortable and, maybe, we need something different to stimulate us again.”

Boko Haram Murders Nurse, Threatens To Kill Leah Sharibu

A faction of the dreaded Islamic sect Boko Haram – the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) – has killed one of the health workers kidnapped from Kala-Balge, Borno State, Saifura Khorsa – a midwife with the International Committee of Red Cross.

Shortly after murdering the humanitarian worker, the sect also threatened to kill Hauwa Liman and Alice Ngaddah who were abducted alongside Khorsa in March, 2018, as well as Leah Sharibu, the remaining Dapchi schoolgirl in Boko Haram captivity.

According to The Cable, the deceased who was wearing a white hijab was shot from behind.

The news outlet also reported that the insurgents claimed that they had contacted the government over the captives but did not get any response.

“We contacted the government through writing and also sent audio messages but the government has ignored us. So, here is a message of blood,” said a spokesman of the group who did not give his name.

“The other nurse and midwife will be executed in a similar manner in one month, including Leah Sharibu,” the sect threatened.

At least four soldiers, policemen and three humanitarian workers were killed in the attack in Rann, Kala-Balge Local Government Area.

In its earlier statement, the Red Cross said two aide workers were still with Boko Haram.

At the time of their abduction, Saifura – as well as her other colleagues – a nurse working in a UNICEF-supported centre, were providing essential antenatal care to communities in Rann, whose population has more than doubled after an influx of people fleeing the violence, the agency said.

“We urge those still holding our colleague Hauwa and Alice: release these women. Like Saifura, they are not part of the fight. They are a midwife and a nurse. They are daughters, a wife, and a mother – women with families that depend on them.”

In his reaction to the murder of the Red Cross staff, President Muhammadu Buhari said:

“The government of Nigeria strongly condemns this reprehensible and inhuman act. No religion permits the killing of the innocent. Saifura worked for the Red Cross, a humanitarian organization tirelessly working to bring succor to all the victims of violence irrespective of the sides of the conflict.”

The president sent out an appeal to Nigeria’s international partners and about everyone with an influence on the terrorists to prevail on them “to stop these acts of extreme barbarism.”

Mr Buhari further assured that his administration will seize every given opportunity with both hands and use all means available to bring home all citizens held against their will by the Boko Haram terrorists.

“On behalf of his family, the government and people of Nigeria, President Buhari extended condolences to the family of Saifura, the Red Red Cross and UNICEF over the loss of this selfless and hardworking mother,” Mr Shehu said.

Drama As Ambode Rushes To Tinubu For Photos At Jim Ovia’s Book Launch

A mild drama played out on Monday, September 17, during the launch of ‘Africa Rise and Shine’, a book by Jim Ovia, chairman of Zenith Bank, as Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode rushed to take photograph with his estranged godfather, Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

‘Who Am I To Speak After Jagaban?’ —Ambode Acknowledges Tinubu At Launch Of Jim Ovia’s Book

As the event was winding down to a close, the Master of Ceremonies invited the state governors present at the occasion and other dignitaries to the podium to take photos with a large copy of the book and the author.

Aside the former and current governors of Lagos state, dignitaries that gathered on the podium for the group photos included Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo; Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa; Governor of Borno, Kashim Shettima; Dr Christopher Kolade, among others.

Ambode earlier stood in between Messrs Ovia and Kolade, but as photo journalists started taking shots, the Lagos governor jogged past Ovia, Osinbajo to squeeze himself in between Tinubu and a woman on his estranged godfather’s left side.

The scene elicited cheers, laughter and applause from those on the podium and many other guests.

Ambode ‘In Trouble’ As Femi Otedola ‘Accepts’ Lagos PDP Governorship Ticket

Bear in mind that Ambode had earlier acknowledged the political prowess of his godfather, who is fondly referred to as ‘The Jagaban’ by admirers, stating that he was not prepared to give a speech.

“Actually, I didn’t prepare to come and say anything here. And who am I to speak after the Jagaban has spoken?” he asked.

Although he has consistently denied it, Ambode’s relationship with Tinubu is strained, culminating in the latter’s decision to back Jide Sanwo-Olu for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship ticket.
