BREAKING: Real Madrid Sacks Coach Julen Lopetugi

Real Madrid Sacks Coach Julen Lopetugi 
SPANISH giant Real Madrid has announced the sack of Julen Lopetegui as manager after four and a half months in charge at the Bernabeu.

The Spaniard took over from Zinedine Zidane in June this year but the crushing 5-1 loss to Barcelona in El Clasico on Sunday was their fifth loss in six games.

Real Madrid, who are currently Champions League winners for the past three years, are ninth in La Liga after their worst start since 2001-02.

It is believed that the 52-year-old will be “provisionally replaced” by ex-player Santiago Solari, coach of B team Castilla.

Lopetegui took a training session on Monday but his fate was confirmed following a board meeting.

A club statement on Monday, October 29, said “there is a great disproportion between the quality of the staff of Real Madrid” and “the results obtained to date”.

Bear in mind that eight of the current Real Madrid squad are on the 30-man shortlist for the 2018 Ballon d’Or.

Solari has a favourable run of fixtures for the start of his tenure, beginning with a Spanish Cup match against Segunda Division B Group 4 side Melilla on Wednesday.

Lagos Issues 7-Day Ultimatum To Owners Of Distressed Buildings

The Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) has issued a seven-day ultimatum to owners of distressed buildings across the state to demolish them or bear the risk and cost of their demolition by the agency.

The LASBCA General Manager, Mr Olalekan Shodeinde, issued the ultimatum on Monday, October 29, during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

According to him, LASBCA had identified and marked some distressed buildings for demolition in some areas of the state.

Shodeinde further disclosed that at the expiration of the ultimatum, LASBCA would demolish the buildings in accordance with the Lagos State Physical and Urban Planning Development Law, 2010.

He warned that owners of such buildings would pay the demolition cost to the state government within 90 days, failure of which the government would confiscate the land.

The general manager said that the government had zero tolerance for distressed buildings.

He said that the ultimatum was given within the ambit of the law with a view to ensuring better physical environment for sustainable development.

“In pursuit for zero tolerance for building collapse, the state government has given owners of distressed buildings seven days’ grace to demolish the buildings or bear the risk of their demolition by the agency.

“People have shown disregard for laws on building construction in the past, and the resultant effects are worrisome.

“Sustainable physical development requires the participation of all residents, whose interests are affected and cooperation necessary for successful implementation of laws and regulations,” he said.

 He said that partially-collapsed building would be demolished soon to prevent loss of lives and property.

“Many distressed buildings in the state are disasters waiting to happen, but the agency is committed to preventing them by pulling the buildings down to avoid collapse that could cause more damage,” he said.

Again, Shiite Protesters Clash With Police, Soldiers In Abuja

For the second time in days, members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) also known as Shiites have clashed with soldiers and policemen in Nyanya area of the Federal Capital Territory.

It was gathered that trouble started when soldiers at a military checkpoint prevented the Shiite procession from coming to Abuja, leading to a clash.

TRENDING VIDEO: ‘5 Killed’ As Nigerian Soldiers Clash With Shi’ites In Abuja

As of the time of filing this report, it is understood that protesting members of group are currently engaged in face -off with Nigerian troops and policemen in the country’s capital city of Abuja.

The group had earlier stormed the Kubwa Expressway in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on Saturday, to demand the release of the group’s leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and to protest the alleged killing of Shiites by the Nigerian Army.

The Movement said on Twitter that its members were “on their #Arbaeen2018 procession from Mararraba axis” when the troops started shooting at them.

Arbaeen is a Shia Muslim religious observance that occurs forty days after the Day of Ashura, another religious observance mostly celebrated by Shiites.

IMN also posted pictures of its members allegedly shot by the troops. It said the attacks on its members who “peacefully trekking” were unprovoked.

Leicester City Helicopter Flight Data Recorder Recovered

Featured Image

Investigators have now recovered the flight data from the fatal helicopter crash outside Leicester City’s King Power Stadium on Saturday night.

Leicester City owner and chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was one of five people killed in the horror crash on Saturday night, and now investigators have recovered flight data from the downed Helicopter, which will aid their inquiry as to what caused the tragedy.

Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) have said that the data has been recovered and sent to Farnborough for analysis, while work has already begun on the decoder.

The AAIB have released a statement regarding the crash, which reads as follows: “We have inspectors here from all four air accident investigation disciplines: engineering, operations, flight data, and human factors.”

The experts expect to remain at the site until the end of the week, which point they intend to  “transport the wreckage to our specialist facilities in Farnborough for more detailed examination”.

According to the investigation team, the recorder was  “subject to intense heat as a result of the post-accident fire”, and so it is currently unknown as to whether the team will be able to recover sufficient data to be able to fully understand what caused the crash.

Paulo Dybala’s Dressing Room Photo With Crisitano Ronaldo Reveals Juventus Tactics

Featured Image

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala inadvertently revealed the teams’ set-piece tactics as he shared a picture with Cristiano Ronaldo in their dressing room.

The board contained information as to how the Serie A champions were to set up when defending opposition set-pieces.

For example, Punizione Laterale Bassa, meaning ‘wide free-kick’ provided information on Rodrigo Bentacur and Ronaldo marking a zone whilst Federico Bernardeschi and Miralem Pjanic were told to guard the box.

Whilst none of the information visible was particularly revolutionary, Allegri will no doubt be keen to remind his forward that some things should remain a secret.

David Luiz Praises ‘Great Human’ Maurizio Sarri As The Key to Chelsea’s Flying Start To The Season

Featured Image
Chelsea defender David Luiz has praised “great human” Maurizio Sarri as The Blues continued their flying start to the Premier League season with a dominant win away at Burnley.
David Luiz thinks it is down to the management of ‘great human’ Maurizio Sarri.
The ‘Blues’ have dropped points to Burnley in each of the last two years; but an emphatic performance, supplemented by goals from Morata, Barkley, Willian, and Loftus-Cheek, saw them run away with proceedings this past weekend.

Chelsea remains unbeaten in all competitions this season, with the exception of the community shield, and much of the credit has gone to Italian coach Maurizio Sarri for the transformation that the club has undergone in recent months.

Defender David Luiz thinks that this praise is justified, as the ex-Napoli boss has improved and taught the Chelsea squad a new, exciting way of playing football since taking charge in the summer.

Speaking about the Italian after the win at Burnley, Luiz was full of praise for the manager, saying: “‘I’m so happy because he’s a great human, he knows how to teach us, he knows how to improve us. When it’s like that it’s easy to understand and easy to try to be a fantastic player inside the pitch.”

Luiz suffered a serious knee injury at the beginning of last season, but when he did recover to full fitness, he was essentially frozen out of the Chelsea squad, for vocalizing his dislike of then manager Antonio Conte’s tactics.

Luiz spoke of the absence of Hazard after the victory of Turf Moor, stating: “‘I think we have many talented players, it’s not just Eden. We lost Pedro [to illness], and then Ruben came on. This is a big club and we cannot just play with 11 players. [We need a] minimum of 18, 19 players ready to play and we are happy because we have more than 20.”

He continued the interview, by taking the chance to praise striker Alvaro Morata, exclaiming: “Alvaro is a great player, he’s doing amazing. Sometimes when the strikers don’t score so the pressure starts on them. They love to score goals. I would just say to him to keep doing what he is doing and the goals are going to come naturally like they came today.”

Luiz concluded his chat with the media by quashing talk of a Chelsea title charge, explaining that it is too early to rule them in or out just yet.

The Brazilian said: “I had the opportunity to play in many fantastic squads, I won with great teams but also lost with great teams. I think with this team it’s trying to improve every single day. The manager is here for three or four months now so he’s trying to improve our style of football, our philosophy. The Premier League is not easy but it’s just the beginning. We’re keeping our feet on the ground.”

Nemanja Matic Calls For More Manchester United Improvement After Everton Win

Featured Image

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic says he was delighted by Sunday’s win over Everton but has urged his teammates to keep improving in the coming weeks.

Goals from Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial secured victory for the ‘Red Devils’

Speaking after the game, Matic hailed the victory as “very important”, particularly having been left disappointed after Chelsea’s last-ditch leveler last weekend.

“Of course it is very important for us to win today,” he said. “As you know, Everton is a very good team.

“We were unlucky that we didn’t win against Chelsea in the last second and, as you saw, in this game also in the last minute we had some trouble after a corner kick.

“We didn’t want to allow this to happen again, so we are happy for the win, we are happy for the three points and I hope that this win will give us more confidence for the future.

“I think in some moments of the game we showed good football. We should, how we like to say, kill the game with the goal, but we didn’t score and when you don’t score this happens.

“Obviously in the Premier League every team has quality to hurt you, so we knew they would try to score.

“And they scored from the penalty, but we managed to control until the end and to win.

“I think we deserved to win this game, but they tried to risk it. They went up front with seven, eight players to risk and after that, we had a counter-attack, I think it was Anthony Martial, to score the third one.

“But this is football, we accept that and, in the end, the most important is the result.”

Meanwhile, Nemanja Matic also said that he felt United were indeed improving after a hugely frustrating start to the campaign.

“I think that we improve,” he insisted.

“We work very well during the week and I think that we improve. Also, the other teams improve, they work also.

“Sometimes they don’t allow you to do what you want to do, so I think that we improved but still we have to show that in the next games.”

Luka Milivojevic Had No Doubts About Scoring His Penalties Vs Arsenal

Featured Image

Luka Milivojevic insisted he had no doubt he’d score his two penalties against Arsenal even though he missed a penalty against Everton the previous week.

With two goals from the spot, Crystal Palace scecured an impressive 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Sunday, with plaudits going to the midfielder who, held his nerve from 12 yards impressively.

Milivojevic had seen a penalty saved by Jordan Pickford in the 2-0 loss at Everton the week before, but he told ‘Palace TV’ he had no doubts he’d score this week. ”I’m very happy after this game,” he began.

”It is not easy when you miss and straight away in the next game you have penalties but as I said, I had the confidence to take them and that I was sure I was going to score.

”I just decided where I wanted to go, where I want to shoot. I put pace into it and thank God I scored. Before the game, I decided where I wanted to go.

”The second one was very hard to take, it was in the 83rd minute and we were very tired because we pushed a lot.

”I think I shot very accurately with the second one as well and I think from this game we deserved at least a point.

”When you feel a lot of pressure on your back and then you score, your pressure goes down.”

I Left Real Madrid Because Of President Florentino Perez – Cristiano Ronaldo

Featured Image

Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that Florentino Perez’s treatment of him was the reason he left Real Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo left the Bernabeu to go to Juventus after the World Cup after he fell out of love with Real Madrid

However he has confirmed that this was not for sporting reasons, but due to a break down in relations with the club’s president – Florentino Perez.

Perez is renowned as a shrewd, ruthless operator and according to an interview with ‘France Football’, his treatment of Ronaldo as a commodity rather than a person angered the former Manchester United man.

“I felt it inside the club, especially from the president, that they no longer considered me the same way that they did in the start,” he commented.

“In the first four or five years there, I had the feeling of being ‘Cristiano Ronaldo’. Less afterwards. The president looked at me through eyes that didn’t want to say the same thing, as if I was no longer indispensable to them, if you know what I mean.

“That’s what made me think about leaving. Sometimes I’d look at the news, where they were saying I was asking to leave. There was a bit of that, but the truth is that I always had the impression that the president would not hold me back.

”If it had all been about money, I’d have moved to China, where I would have earned five times as much than here [at Juventus] or at Real. I did not come to Juve for the money. I earned the same in Madrid, if not more. The difference is that, at Juve, they really wanted me. They told me that and made it clear. They showed me that.”

He continued to criticise the Real chief, saying: “He only ever looked at me as a business relationship. I know it. What he told me never came from the heart.”

It had been suggested that Ronaldo left due to Zinedine Zidane’s departure as manager but he denied this, saying: “My decision to leave was not based on his departure. That being the case, it’s one of those little things that made me feel a bit better in terms of what I thought of the situation at the club.”

Cristiano Ronaldo Speaks On Rape Allegations: ‘Truth Will Come Out’

Cristiano Ronaldo once again affirmed his innocence over allegations that he raped Kathryn Mayorga in 2009

A former American model Kathryn Mayorga, 34, of Las Vegas, accused Ronaldo in a 32-page complaint filed last month with a district court in Nevada, of raping her in June 2009, just before he joined Madrid from Manchester United.

“Of course this matter interferes with my life. I have a partner, four children, an aging mother, sisters, a brother, a family with whom I am very close,” he told ‘France Football’ magazine.

“That is without talking about my reputation, that of an exemplary person.

“Imagine what that is like to have someone say you are a rapist, or that you have this or that.

“I know who I am and what I did. The truth will come out. And the people who criticize me and who expose my life today, who make a song and dance about it, these people will see.”

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s Family Pay Respects At Site Of Helicopter Crash

Featured Image

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s son and widow were seen laying a wreath among a sea of tributes from fans outside the stadium, including flowers, football scarves and Buddhist statues.

Vichai’s son Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, known as “Top”, is chief executive of his father’s duty-free empire King Power and also vice-chairman of the football club Vichai bought in 2010.

Air accident investigators also on Monday said they had recovered the helicopter’s digital flight data recorder, which was subject to “intense heat” in a fire after the crash.

“Today our inspectors.. will start working on the recorder,” the Air Accidents Investigation Branch said in a statement.

 

Along with other family members and executives from King Power, the two were also seen laying wreaths at the crash site in a car park near the stadium, which is still cordoned off as air accident investigators pick through the wreckage.

Five people died in Saturday’s crash, including also two members of Vichai’s staff, Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and the pilot’s girlfriend, Izabela Roza Lechowicz, also a pilot.

Nursara Suknamai was an actress and a runner-up in Miss Thailand Universe in 2005.

Vichai, 60, a regular at matches who used to fly to and from home games, was much-loved in the city as the driving force behind the club’s historic 2016 Premiership victory.

His blue helicopter took off from the pitch after the stadium emptied following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with West Ham, but crashed moments later in the car park.

Earlier British Prime Minister Theresa May and Prince William, who is president of the Football Association, offered their condolences over the crash.

“I was lucky to have known Vichai for several years. He was a businessman of strong values who was dedicated to his family and who supported a number of important charitable causes,” said William, the Duke of Cambridge.

“He made such a big contribution to football, not least through Leicester City’s magical 2016 season that captured the imagination of the world.

“He will be missed by all fans of the sport and everyone lucky enough to have known him.”

May said her thoughts were with the family and friends of the victims as well as supporters of the club.

“The outpouring of grief is a testament to how many people’s lives were touched by those on board,” she said in a statement.

TRENDING VIDEO: ‘5 Killed’ As Nigerian Soldiers Clash With Shi’ites In Abuja

‘5 Killed’ As Nigerian Soldiers Clash With Shi’ites In Abuja

According to videos shared on social media, some members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), also known as Shi’ites, were said to have died during a clash with soldiers of the Nigerian army on Saturday in Abuja.

While it was reported that the confrontation, on Zuba highway, claimed the lives of five persons, the Nigerian Army insisted that only three died in the incident.

Below is a video from the scene of the clash.

It was gathered that members of the group stormed the Kubwa Expressway yesterday in thousands to demand the release of the group’s leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and to protest the killing of Shiites by the Nigerian Army.

The Shiites were said to have blocked the Dutse and Galadima ends of the expressway, obstructing traffic for about two hours as they chanted solidarity songs and carried flags containing a deceased member and El-Zakzaky.

Confirming the killings, the military, through the Army Headquarters Garrison on Sunday, said that its soldiers shot dead three of the protesting Shiites in the Zuba area of Abuja on Saturday, after the protesters allegedly attacked the military convoy and pelted personnel with stones.

The army said the Shiites “smashed both military and civilian vehicles’ windscreens and windows and they also attempted to overrun the escorts to cart away the ammunition and missiles the troops were escorting.”

The army, in a release by the Garrison Commander, Maj Gen James Myam, said the troops opened fire to rescue the situation and three of the protesters were killed.

But the Islamic Movement, in a release by its Spokesperson, Abdullahi Musa, on Sunday, said its protest on the Abuja Expressway, was to report the atrocities of the army and to demand the release of Zakzaky and his wife.

Musa said, “Residents of Abuja and some parts of Niger and Nasarawa states should please be informed that the followers of Sheikh Zakzaky are in Abuja to conduct Arbaeen symbolic trek. It commenced on Sunday and the followers would march en mass to Abuja. The public should recall the grave atrocities committed by the Nigerian Army during December 2015 Zaria massacre where hundreds of children were orphaned; many husbands and wives widowed and scores of Zakzaky’s disciples are still languishing in prisons.

“Likewise, Zakzaky has been in detention for more than 1,000 days in spite of his deteriorating health conditions without proper medical treatment and despite the fact that a Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered his immediate and unconditional release since December 2, 2016. We use this opportunity to inform President Buhari and the government that our demand is the release of Zakzaky and his wife and this demand is not negotiable.”

Lai Mohammed Reveals Why Buhari Deserves 2nd Term, Speaks On His Certificate

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari deserved a second term because, in the past three and half years, he has impacted positively in the lives of Nigerians.

Presidency Claims Nigerian Military Lost Buhari’s Certificates

The minister, who was a guest on Channels Television programme “Politics Today” on Sunday night, said the President had leveraged his legendary integrity and acumen in managing resources both human and materials to reinvent governance.

According to him, Buhari had delivered on the three campaign promises he made which were, fighting corruption, tackling insecurity and revamping the economy.

His words: “Today, under President Buhari, Nigerians can dream and hope because he has rebranded governance and put the country on the path of sustainable growth and development.

“He is investing in infrastructure and reinventing the most ambitious social programme in the history of the nation.

“The President is ensuring that the people do not loot the common resources and ensuring that Nigeria is self-sufficient in food production

“Above all, he has brought honour and respect back to the country and fighting all sorts of insecurity in the country.”

Speaking on the non-submission of the President’s WAEC certificate to INEC, the minister said it was “a non-issue and a mere distraction”

“We have moved beyond that. Let me quote what former President Olusegun Obasanjo said in 2015 during this saga of the President’s certificate.

“Obasanjo said that it is an insult on a man, who rose to the echelon in Nigeria Army, attended the War College in the US and Staff College in Nigeria, for anyone to start asking whether he has a certificate or not.

“I think I want to rest this case on that because it is a non-issue,” the minister said.

On Buhari’s health, Mohammed said that the President had fully recovered and fit to discharge his duties.

The minister also said they were not worried by the endorsement of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, by Obasanjo because “it is Nigerians that will decide who will govern them”.

“It is Nigerians that are going to vote at the 2019 elections.

“They will make a choice between going back to the era of inefficiency, looting, decay in infrastructure and the era of integrity when the economy is being revived and insurgency is being tackled.

“It is not what Obasanjo says that matters because I am sure Nigerians will make the right choice,” he said.

APC Harvests 3,000 PDP Members In Ortom’s LGA

APC Harvests 3,000 PDP Members In Ortom’s LGA

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue State has disclosed that 3,000 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have defected to APC in Guma, the local government area of the State Governor, Samuel Ortom.

This is contained in a press statement signed by Mr James Ornguga, APC’s acting State Publicity Secretary, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Makurdi, the state capital.

It was gathered that Ortom administration had earlier accused the Benue APC of staging a political campaign at one of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Daudu where they had deceived the IDPs to gather and collect relief materials.

“We understand that the duo of Akume and Jime lied to the displaced persons that they were visiting the camp to give them relief materials, only for the IDPs to discover that it was a campaign rally,” Akase, Ortom’s spokesperson said.

Reacting to the statement, the APC said the accusation was “infantile to have emanated from a sitting governor” and described it as not only “shameful but a display of immaturity from a panicky government”.

“We read a comical statement from the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Benue State, Mr Terver Akase, wherein he alleged that our party had organized the IDPs for distribution of relief materials and ended up tagging same as a “campaign rally”.

“This accusation is too infantile to have emanated from the spokesperson of a sitting governor but since we are used to the many lies of the Ortom administration in close to four years, the APC can at most describe the action as shameful and a display of immaturity from a panicky government.”

“Benue APC on Oct. 26 organized a defection ceremony at Daudu, Guma where a former Speaker of the state, Mr Stephen Tsav, and over 3,000 PDP members from Nyiev, Mbagwen and Mbawa defected to APC.”

“Everyone who witnessed that event would be forced to commiserate with the Benue State Governor since it marked the end of PDP in Guma, his home local government.

“Rather than mourn this gross deflation of the PDP in one of its strongholds in Benue, Governor Samuel Ortom’s image maker has opted to ridicule himself with careless words that clearly expose the governor’s insomnia over this gathering.”

Presidency Claims Nigerian Military Lost Buhari’s Certificates

Presidency Claims Nigerian Military Lost Buhari’s Certificates

The presidency has alleged that the Nigerian military had admitted losing President Muhammadu Buhari’s certificate.

Outrage On Twitter As Buhari Fails To Provide WAEC Certificate To INEC

In an interview with The Nation, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr. Femi Adesina, was quoted as saying the issue is dead and those still discussing it are “idle”.

“The military already said they lost the certificates. But does it mean that it did not exist that the president went to school, sat for examinations and passed; attended military courses and War College?.”

Buhari failed to provide his academic credentials to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) last Thursday as one of the requirements to contest elective positions in the country.

The president claimed that they are in the custody of the military.

“I am the above-named person and the deponent of this affidavit herein. All my academic qualification documents as filled in my Presidential form, APC/001/2015 are currently with the Secretary of the Military Board as of the time of this affidavit,” Buhari said in an affidavit submitted to INEC.

Adesina, however, said those raising the issue are the opposition parties whose defeat is “imminent” ahead of the 2019 elections.

“The certificate saga is a dead issue, only idle people will consider it,” he said, adding that “it is something that had been laid to rest before the 2015 general elections.”

“Those raising the issue (PDP and others) are idle and they have run out of ideas. They see defeat staring them in the face and they are desperate to cling to any straw. This issue was resolved before the 2015 election.

“It is a matter of fact that when President Buhari and others joined the military, they took their original certificates from them. The military knew where they kept the original certificates of the President.

“In fact, a former Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Alani Akinrinade corroborated that the military collected the original certificates of all its officers. The PDP believes it is going to lose the elections, and they will lose, and it is raising dust over a dead issue.

“The military already said they lost the certificates. But does it mean that it did not exist that the President went to school, sat for examinations and passed; attended military courses and War College.

“It does not change the fact that the President rose through the ranks to become a Major-General in the Nigerian Army and a Military Head of State.

“Didn’t those opposed to President Buhari go to court over his certificate and lost before? They will still lose this time around. It is a dead issue.”
