Virgil Van Dijk Must Trophies To Be Considered A Liverpool Legend – Jamie Carragher

Featured Image

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has denied claims that Virgil van Dijk is already a club legend, claiming that he must win silverware in order to be put in that category of players.

Van Dijk has been one of the standout performers for Jurgen Klopp’s side so far this season, helping the team to eight clean sheets in the first 13 Premier League games played so far.

During that same period, van Dijk has been a mainstay in the defence, which has only conceded five goals.

However, in spite of the ‘world class’ label granted to him by many Liverpool fans, former player Jamie Carragher has said that the Dutchman is not a legend just yet.

Carragher claims that only when he begins to bring silverware to Anfield, will he then be deemed a legend.

In an interview with ‘Sky Sports’ ahead of the Merseyside derby this weekend, Carragher stated: “I think with a club of Liverpool’s size, if you want to be remembered as one of the great players or a legend, you’ve got to take the club to something. ”

“Luis Suarez came very close to doing that in terms of the title and I think he would’ve done that. His name could’ve been right up there with those great attackers but I think the same is with Van Dijk also. At a club the size of Liverpool it’s about winning trophies, it’s not about just playing well for Liverpool.” explained Carragher.

The former centre half continued: “”A proper Liverpool player takes the club to trophies and to heights they didn’t expect. He’s got the ability to do that.”

Caragher did however admit that van Dijk was one of the best players in the current crop of central defenders in the Premier League.

He concluded: “I think he’s brilliant. I think he’s the best centre-back in the Premier League and I also think Aymeric Laporte at Man City has been brilliant since he came in. He’s so good in his position that I think, at this moment in time, he’s up there with the best names in the world.”

“Like Bishop Crowther, I Am A Descendant Of Abraham” – Buhari

“Like Bishop Crowther, I Am A Descendant Of Abraham” – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has aimed a dig at those accusing him of attempting to Islamise Nigeria, describing himself as “a descendant of Abraham just like Bishop Crowther”.

Mr Buhari said this in an opinion article that earlier appeared on the UK-based Christian Times on Friday.

FG Finally Addresses Rumours That Buhari Was Cloned With Jibrin

In the article, the president referenced a Biblical verse and argued that Christians and Muslims share the same root, although their belief differs.

Read the op-ed below:

In 1844, the Revd Samuel Ajayi Crowther returned home to Yoruba land (now part of modern-day Nigeria). Twenty years earlier, he had been kidnapped and sold to European slave traders who were bound for the Americas. He was freed by an abolitionist naval patrol, and received by the Church Missionary Society. There, he found his calling.

Crowther made his voyage home to establish the first Anglican mission in Yoruba land. He came with the first Bibles translated into Yoruba and Hausa languages. He opened dialogue and discussion with those of other faiths. And his mission was a success: Crowther later became the first African Anglican bishop in Africa.

Today, Nigeria has the largest Christian population on the continent. The messages and teachings of Christianity are part of the fabric of each person’s life.

Along with the millions of Christians in Nigeria today, I believe in peace, tolerance, and reconciliation; in the institution of the family, the sanctity of marriage, and the honour of fidelity; in hope, compassion, and divine revelation.

Like Bishop Crowther, I am a descendant of Abraham; unlike him, I am a Muslim. I believe our two great religions can not only peacefully coexist but also flourish together. But Muslims and Christians must first turn to one another in compassion. For, as it says in Amos 3.3: “Do two walk together, unless they have agreed to meet?”

New Islamic Terrorist Group Takes Over In Sokoto

A new terrorist group, which members brandish sophisticated weapons, has reportedly emerged in Tangaza Local Government Area of Sokoto State.

Premium Times reports that the group is now applying ‘strange laws’ and punishing defaulters.

It quoted a witness as saying that members of the group, believed to be from Niger Republic, are in possession of assorted weapons, preaching Islamic teachings, forcefully collecting alms (zakat) and flogging defaulters.

“Though members of the terror group are yet to be identified by name, and have been in the area for than two months, they are allegedly recruiting youth in a nearby bush. After ‘training’ them, they give them a motorcycle,” the witness, who pleaded anonymity, said.

According to him, members of the group are more than 200.

He said they looked strange, spoke Arabic and wore turbans over their heads.

“They imposed compulsory levies on each household with cows and rams. Those with cows are paying N500 and those with ram are paying N200,” he said.

“They are arresting and fining herdsmen who encroach on farmlands and are keeping the money.

“They are operating freely, scaring residents, without being challenged. They are going from one community to another,” the witness said.

Mohamed Salah’s Impact In Egypt Revealed

Featured Image

Mohamed Salah is adored in his home nation of Egypt

Salah has helped out his fellow Egyptians with the riches he’s earned in Serie A and the Premier League.

He donated $300,000 to the Egyptian government to help stimulate the economy and has fronted a drug addiction campaign that has seen the hotline receive 400% more calls since Salah’s intervention.

“Salah has never forgotten his roots – unlike other players who often forget their families and villages when they become wealthy,” the Egyptian national team’s former media officer told the ‘BBC’.

“It is well known that Salah dedicates a lot of money for those in need in his village. Everything goes through his father, who knows what to do.

“For example, someone from the village preparing for a wedding will come to his father to request funds. Or if someone says he is sick, the father follows the case and if it is true, he will help pay for the operation.

“He’s not doing this so that people can appreciate him, he is doing this because he went through moments of hardships himself – so he wants to help people,”

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Diego Dalot will be available for action after sustaining an injury while on international duty.

Diego Dalot joined from Porto in the summer but has been affected by injury for the most part.

“He is ready now,” Mourinho said of the Portuguese full-back.

“But now he has been training for two weeks and we think he is ready now.”

Real Madrid Manager Santiago Solari Refuses To Discuss Rift With Isco

Featured Image

Isco has been linked with a move away from Real Madrid but Santiago Solari declined to entertain suggestions of a rift with the player.

Isco is yet to start a game since Santiago Solari succeeded Julen Lopetegui as manager in October and was left out of the matchday squad for Tuesday’s 2-0 Champions League win at Roma.

The situation has resulted in a host of clubs being linked with his services, including Chelsea, Arsenal, AC Milan and even Barcelona alongside his perpetually touted move to Manchester City.

Solari insisted his midweek decision to drop Isco was tactical and declined to shed any further light on the issue ahead of Saturday’s match against Valencia.

“Honestly, I think there’s not really anything to talk about here,” he said.

“I spoke the other day. These are things that happen, they are decisions that have to be made. That’s it.

“I can’t be speculating all the time here with you guys.

“There are 24 professionals, they are all working hard and we have to take decisions. There’s nothing more to say.”

Solari added: “I do whatever I consider is best for every single player. Every single one is important. We are all Real Madrid.”

Spain

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is stalling over a new contract amid interest from Real Madrid. The Dane’s current deal with Spurs expires in 2020 but he is in no rush to put pen to paper on fresh terms. Real may make an approach for the 26-year-old should Luka Modric leave the Bernabeu. Eriksen, who hasn’t lifted a trophy during five years at Tottenham, is keen to win silverware. However, the former Ajax playmaker would likely cost in excess of £200m, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy placing a premium on price on the midfielder. (Marca)

Barcelona are ready to do everything they can to ensure they win the race for Matthijs de Ligt’s signature. The Ajax defender has attracted interest from top clubs around Europe, but the Catalan giants appear to be in the driving seat having been in regular contact with Mino Raiola, the player’s agent. (Sport)

Manchester City midfielder Brahim Diaz will join Real Madrid on a free transfer when his contract expires next summer. The 19-year-old feels as though he won’t break into Pep Guardiola’s first team and has received more assurances about his role from the European champions. (Marca)

Speculation surrounding Isco’s fallout with Real Madrid manager Santiago Solari continues. The Spain international reportedly refused to shake Solari’s hand following Los Blancos’ 3-0 defeat to Eibar last weekend, which led to him being dropped from the matchday squad for the Champions League trip to Roma. Isco has not started any of Solari’s six games in charge and is attracting interest from Juventus and Manchester City. (Marca)

Giovani Lo Celso says his future is with Real Betis after impressing at the Andalusian club on loan from Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentine has revived his career at Betis after struggling to nail down his place at the Parc des Princes and the La Liga club are now expected to sign the 22-year-old on a permanent basis. “This is not the first time I have said this, but I am very happy, and I am enjoying my football,” Lo Celso said. “Betis are the right club for me, I still have a lot to learn and I plan to do that here.” (Marca)

Italy

Napoli rejected offers for Marek Hamsik from Inter, AC Milan and Juventus, according to club president Aurelio De Laurentiis. The Slovakian has been with Napoli since 2007 and De Laurentiis has revealed that he’s been forced to rebuff interest from Serie A rivals on several occasions down the years, including from Massimiliano Allegri when the coach was at Milan and Juve. (Football Italia)

Fulham have expressed interest in Inter winger Antonio Candreva, with Claudio Ranieri keen to bolster his squad with experience for the second half of the Premier League season. The Cottagers want to take the 31-year-old on an initial six-month loan and, with Candreva struggling for game time at the San Siro, they are confident of securing the Italy international’s services. (Tuttomercatoweb)

Juventus and Inter continue to track Fiorentina forward Federico Chiesa’s progress closely. The 21-year-old, who has impressed for La Viola over the last couple of seasons, was a key target for Giuseppe Marotta while he was at Juventus. Now that Marotta has moved to Inter, he will try to lure the Italy international to the San Siro instead. (Tuttosport)

Germany

Arsenal and Tottenham are interested in Hoffenheim midfielder Nadiem Amiri. The 22-year-old has not played this season due to injury but remains on the radar of the Premier League rivals and could be available for £15m. (Sport Bild)

Portugal

Manchester City have emerged as frontrunners to sign highly-rated Benfica midfielder Tiago Dantas. The 17-year-old is expected to join the Premier League champions when his contract expires next summer. (Record)

UN Officially Adds Reggae Music To Its List Of Global Cultural Treasure Worth Protecting

UN Officially Adds Reggae Music To Its List Of Global Cultural Treasure Worth Protecting

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has added reggae music to its list of cultural institutions worthy of protection and preservation.

Each year, UNESCO adds to its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, and Jamaica submitted reggae for consideration earlier this year.

While reggae music has been popularized around the world by artists such as Bob Marley and the Wailers, and sampled by musicians like Kanye West and Jay Z, its inclusion on UNESCO’s list is about showcasing and preserving its distinctly Jamaican history.

The genre now joins a list of over 300 cultural traditions, including numerous musical ones such as Dominican merengue, Slovakian bagpipe music and Vietnamese xoan singing.

Confirming the addition of Reggae music in a statement issued on its website, UNESCO said:

“Its contribution to international discourse on issues of injustice, resistance, love and humanity underscores the dynamics of the element as being at once cerebral, socio-political, sensual and spiritual. The basic social functions of the music – as a vehicle for social commentary, a cathartic practice, and a means of praising God – have not changed, and the music continues to act as a voice for all.”

Reggae music is one of the more high-profile 2018 additions to Unesco’s list. Other newly honored practices from around the world include traditional hand puppetry from Egypt, the love ballad form of music called Dondang Sayang from Malaysia, and Tamboradas drum-playing rituals from Spain.

You can find the full list of over 300 Unesco cultural traditions here.

Naira Crashes Against Dollar At Black Market – Its Record Lowest Since August 2017

Naira Crashes Against Dollar At Black Market – Its Record Lowest Since August 2017

The Nigerian currency naira on Thursday, November 29, weakened by 1 percent on the black market to 370 per dollar – its record lowest since August 2017.

Reuters quoted traders as saying that some black market outlets were hoarding dollars, fearing a recent sharp fall in oil prices could lead to a shortage of the US currency.

Global prices of oil, Nigeria’s chief export, have dropped more than 20 percent this month.

Traders now fear that the Nigerian central bank may not have enough reserves to defend the currency against a possible further weakening of oil prices as foreign investors have been pulling money out of Nigerian assets.

“There’s no new investment coming in and oil prices have been dropping so investors are watching while some are exiting,” one trader said.

The central bank has been using up foreign exchange reserves to keep the naira stable, spending $2.2bn in October to prop up the currency as foreign investors have also left the market in favour of rising interest rates in developed economies.

The CBN data released on Thursday showed that the nation’s foreign reserves stood at $41.9bn as of November 27, down 12.3 per cent from a peak of $47.8bn reached in June.

Investors have also been pulling out funds from equities. On Thursday, the benchmark stock index fell by 1.33 per cent to 30,611 basis points.

The naira also weakened on the over-the-counter market where it is traded by banks. It was exchanged for between 364 and 364.50 to the dollar on Thursday, compared to 363 a week earlier. At forex bureau, it was quoted at 366 per dollar, while a unit fetched 306.30 on the official market.

I’m Always Envious Of Chelsea, Wish We (Man United) Beat Them – Tinubu

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has revealed that he is envious of Premier League side Chelsea and since he is a diehard fan of Manchester United, he always wished that the latter beats the former.

The former governor of Lagos State stated this when Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi paid him a visit at his Bourdillon, Ikoyi home in Lagos.

The China-based Mikel had visited the APC bigwig to seek his support for his talent hunt programme – Africa’s Next Football Superstar.

In a chat with The Punch, Tinubu said:

“I’m very proud and honoured to receive you (Mikel). I’m a great fan of football even though not much of a fan of your former club (Chelsea). I sincerely tried to watch Chelsea all the time you were there because you are a great talent.”

“Chelsea is not my club but he (Mikel) is my club and we will support his project. I’m a Man United fan to the core.

“Last weekend, I watched the Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea game with one eye because I’m always envious of Chelsea. I always wish we (Manchester United) beat them. I sympathise with him (Mikel), his former club had to take a hit from Tottenham.”

“When Mikel was there however, I watched Chelsea each time he was on the pitch with both eyes because he’s a great talent. It’s been a wonderful homecoming for him and we will do everything to support him.”

Dear Madiba’ — Beyonce Writes Letter Of Gratitude To Nelson Mandela

Ahead of the Global Citizen Festival, Grammy award winning songstress, Beyoncé has written a letter of gratitude to late South African leader, Nelson Mandela.

Read the letter below:

Dear Madiba,

I first met you in 2004 for the 46664 AIDS Benefit Concert in Cape Town, and the impact you have had on my life resonates with me today and every day. Your kindness and gratitude for every experience, and your ability to forgive are lessons I have learned and will pass on to my three children. My entire family holds you in high regard.

It is an honor for me to travel to South Africa this week in celebration of you and your efforts to right so many wrongs. You were a strategic warrior, a bold activist, and charismatic and well-loved leader. Your vision for dignity, for human rights, for peace and a South Africa free of racism and apartheid, allows us all to turn dreams into reality.

I remember taking that walk with you back to the prison on Robben Island where you spent 18 of those imprisoned 27 years. I recall your measured but focused steps in as you recounted the stories of the struggles, the sacrifices and your resilience. You smiled as you talked to a crowd of artists and their guests, including my mother, who first told my sister and me about the great Nelson Mandela. In that moment I truly understood your heart and humility.

You made it possible for so many people like me to reject impossibilities and understand our capabilities in making lasting change in the world. The smallest efforts could change the trajectory for so many living in extreme poverty, facing injustices, the indecency of racism and fighting for their rights as humans.

As we celebrate the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, honoring your centennial year, I promise you that we have made your dreams our own.

Your work and your sacrifices were not in vain. I will cherish every moment shared in your presence and use the lessons learned from you as fuel to stir positive ideas and solutions.

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter

Tomi Adeyemi’s Plagiarism Accusation, Nora Roberts’ Reply And Twitter Reactions

Tomi Adeyemi’s Plagiarism Accusation, Nora Roberts’ Reply And Twitter Reactions

Last night, a mild altercation played out on Twitter after Nigerian-American author Tomi Adeyemi accused American veteran author, Nora Roberts, of book title plagiarism on Wednesday.

The Nigerian-American author is accusing Roberts of replicating the title of her book, Of Blood and Bone on Twitter!

Later on, the ‘Children of Blood and Bone’ author said the titles were created in isolation adding that she had apologized to Nora Roberts.

“Nora was kind enough to reach out & explain that today was the first she’d heard of my book. After talking to her, I believe our titles were created in isolation. I’m grateful she explained & I’ve apologized, but I wanted to address it here as I know others were upset too,” she wrote.

Despite tweeting an apology, Nora Roberts responded back on her blog with a lengthy, strongly-worded piece titled Mob Rule On Social Media.

Reacting to the accusations, Nora Roberts wrote:

“I don’t believe, and have never believed in taking personal issues onto public forums. I don’t believe, and have never believed–will never believe–in a writer attacking another writing on a public forum. It’s unprofessional, it’s tacky and the results are, always, just always, ugly.

Recently another writer used her social media forums to baselessly, recklessly accuse me of stealing the title of her book–which is bullshit right off–to attempt to profit from this theft. She had no facts, just her emotions, and threw this out there for her followers.

First, let’s address the particular title which happens to be similar. I titled this particular book, wrote this book, turned this book into my publisher nearly a year before her book–a first novel–was published. So unless I conquered the time/space continuum, my book was actually titled before hers. Regardless, you can’t copyright a title. And titles, like broad ideas, just float around in the creative clouds. It’s what’s inside that counts.

It’s just a title.

By accusing me, in public, of attempting to ‘shamelessly profit’ off of her creativity, she incited her readers into attacking me–on her feed, then on my pages, then on the internet in general. She did nothing to stop this. I have been accused of theft, of trying to use this first time writer–whose book has been well received–for my own profit. To ride her coattails as I have no originality. This after more than thirty years in the business, more than two hundred books.

I was accused of plagiarism–for a title–of stealing her ideas–though I had never heard of her book before this firestorm, have never read her book.

And trust me, I never will now.”

This is what happens when a reckless statement is made on social media. It becomes a monstrous lie that spreads and grows and escalates.

I don’t know this woman; she doesn’t know me. She lit the match, foolishly. Perhaps being young and new and so recently successful she doesn’t fully understand the relationship between a writer and her readers, or the power of an ugly insinuation posted on Twitter. But, God, you should know how tools work before you use them.

We should all take a lesson here. Think, then think again, before you post. Be sure of your facts before you take a shot at someone. Be prepared for the vicious fallout once you do.

Could you have dug a little deeper to check facts? Could you have contacted the person in question and had a conversation? In this case–writer to writer–could you have spoken to your publisher, your agent, about the fact that a title can’t be stolen in the first place?

Could you have, perhaps, checked the timeline? If your book came out a few months before the other book (and if you know SQUAT about publishing) you’d certainly realize it was written, titled and in production when yours hit the stands. So how could a damn title be ‘stolen’?

To be accused of plagiarism by some faceless reader on the internet, one who felt entitled to spread that lie gutted me. I’ve been plagiarized, and will always have an open wound from the blow. To me, plagiarism is the most terrible sin a writer can commit.

I have worked my entire career to build a foundation of professionalism, of teamwork with my publisher, to create a community with other writers, and to show readers I value them–not just with communication, but by doing my best to give them good books.

No one who knows me would believe any of these accusations. But that’s the problem. Those making them don’t know me, they simply lash out because they can.

This foolish and false statement has damaged my reputation. Vicious and ugly accusations and names have been tossed at me when I did nothing but write and title a book.

While this writer issued a kind of retraction after I reached out to her, it didn’t stop some of her readers from calling me a liar, and worse. We reached out again, asking her to put out the fire.

We’ve had no response, not from her, not from her agent. Shame on them.

I had every intention of letting this go until the flames kept burning, until the attacks kept coming. And nothing was done by the person who lit the match to stop it.

I don’t like taking my issues public. But I will stand up for myself. I will defend my integrity and my reputation and my work.

I’m appalled by this, sickened by it. I’m disgusted that people who don’t know me would feel free to say vicious things about me. I know very well the anonymity of the internet can foster such nastiness, but it still disgusts me.

Words have great power–to harm, to heal, to teach, to entertain. A writer, one who wants to forge a career with words, should understand that. And use them, as well as the tools at her disposal, wisely.

I’ve very deliberately not mentioned the name of the writer who started this, or the title of her book or mine. I don’t want this to escalate any more than it has. I don’t want my readers to go on the attack. It’s not cool. I simply want to set the record straight.

I’m Nora Roberts. I’m a hard-working writer, and an honest one. That’s it.

Meanwhile, a lot of social media users are calling for Tomi Adeyemi to take down the controversial tweet and issue a more heartfelt apology.

JAMB Reveals When 2019 UTME Registration Will Begin

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that registration for 2019/ 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will commence in December.

The Head of Media of the Board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made the announcement on Thursday while addressing newsmen during the conduct of promotion exercise for the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), at the board’s Computer Based Test (CBT) Centre in Abuja.

Buhari Approves Reduction In Cost Of JAMB (UTME), NECO (SSCE) Forms

Benjamin, however, said no specific date has been fixed for the commencement of the registration yet.

The JAMB spokesperson also said that plans were underway to do so as soon as possible as the board was initially waiting for the pronouncement of the presidency on the reduction of the examinations fee, which was formally announced on Wednesday.

Bear in mind that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday approved the downward review of the examination registration fees from N5,000 to N3,500 effective from January 2019.

The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, announced this after the meeting.

Benjamin said it was commendable what the President had done as he was someone, who had always had the interest of the masses at heart and would prove to ensure that no Nigerian was deprived of tertiary education.

”The president has overtime, expressed concern that the charges were high.

”Our consistent remittance has proven that something could actually be done and even if charges are reduced, examinations can still be conducted with no service suffering any issue of funding.

”The president has taken this bold step, we will see what happens after this reduction and if need be for further reduction, Mr President will do so in no distant time because he has concerns for the ordinary Nigerian on the streets. ”

Paris Saint-Germain End James Milner Goalscoring Record

Featured Image

James Milner’s long unbeaten run when getting on the scoresheet was ended on Wednesday night as Liverpool lost 2-1 to PSG in the Champions League.

Milner scored from the penalty spot just before the break for the ‘Reds’ to reduce the arrears, but it proved only to be a consolation as the hosts held on to claim a vital win.

Remarkably, that ended a 39-game run when Milner had not been on the losing side when getting on the scoresheet.

That record goes back all the way to February 2010 and includes 41 goals for Liverpool, Manchester City, Aston Villa and England.

Milner was just 24 the last time he was both on the scoresheet and the losing side, netting for Villa as they lost to Manchester United in the 2010 League Cup final.
