Mourinho: Manchester Derby More Than Me And Guardiola

Featured Image

The focus in the upcoming Manchester derby is not on Jose Mourinho or Pep Guardiola, but on the team and the the Portuguese is for this.

The rival managers shared a toxic rivalry when they were in Spain, with Mourinho coaching Real Madrid and Guardiola coaching Barcelona.

The same relationship was expected this season, with the Portuguese in charge at United and the Spaniard at City.

Both teams started the srasonseason quite well and City won the first match 2-1, but the story is not the same, as they’re both fighting for a spot in Europe.

A win for United will see Mourinho’s men move to fourth on the table and City dropping to fifth.

“I see that now is the correct approach and the previous one wasn’t,” he told Sky Sports, reflecting upon early season hype.

“This is about the clubs, this is about the teams, this is about the positions at the end of the season.

“This is not about myself and Guardiola, so I think now is the correct approach.”

Hazard: I’m Not The Right Captain For Chelsea

Featured Image

Belgium captain Eden Hazard, does not think he is a suitable replacement for John Terry as Chelsea’s captain.

John Terry is leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, leaving the role of team captain vacant.

And while Gary Cahill has worn the armband for the majority of the season, Hazard has also been touted as captain of the blues.

“I think we have some players who can be more than a captain in this team,” Hazard told Sky Sports.

“When I talk to you at the national team, I do not know if I am a good captain, but I am a captain on the pitch.

“Off the pitch I do not like to talk a lot. In England I think the captain has to talk and make people ready for the games. I am not this kind of guy, I can talk with my feet but it is not my job to talk to everyone.

“I think JT does this, Gary [Cahill], [Cesar] Azpilicueta and even Cesc. They deserve to be captain.”

Ancelotti Unimpressed With Ribery’s Performances

Featured Image

Carlo Ancelotti has hinted at dropping Franck Ribery for Douglas Costa in the DFB-Pokal semifinal against Borussia Dortmund, due to the winger’s failure to impress him.

The former France international started the season quite well and impressed in the win over Dortmund earlier in the season, but h’s suffered a dip in form.

Ribery was poor in the match against Madrid and Mainz and was replaced quite early in both matches. His fitness was rumoured to be the problem, but Ancelotti has debunked such talks.

“Ribery is fit and can play on Wednesday,” Ancelotti stated at a news conference.

“He was out of the team the other day because he had not been playing well.

“Douglas Costa had some knee problems before, but he is doing better now. He is in a good shape and an option for the game against Dortmund.”

Eden Hazard believes before he can be put on the same level as Ronaldo and Messi, he must increase his goal haul.

The Belgium captain has scored over 15 goals for Chelsea in all competitions this season, helping them to the top of the table.

And Cesc Fabregas has called on Hazard to become more selfish in front of goal, to increase his tally.

“Fabregas is not the only one to say that to me,” he told Sky Sports.

“A lot of people say to me: ‘You need to be more selfish,’ but when I am on the pitch sometimes I prefer to pass the ball.

“I try game after game to be more selfish. I know it is good for me to score more goals if I want to reach the level of Messi and Ronaldo. I am working on it.”

“Perfect Time For Joshua To Face Klitschko”

Featured Image

Lennox Lewis has stated that Anthony Joshua could not have picked a better time to face Wladimir Klitschko ahead of their Saturday fight.

Anthony Joshua will tussle with the veteran heavyweight boxer with his IBF belt and the WBA ‘super’ belt on the line at Wembley.

Lewis does not think Klitschko has what it takes to beat the unbeaten British boxer, with his last fight a loss to Tyson Fury 18 months ago.

Lewis told Sky Sports News HQ: “Joshua is big, powerful and strong. Right now any time he steps into the ring he’s knocking everybody out.

“All these heavyweights are sitting outside of the ropes, waiting to see if Wladimir is going to fall by the wayside. Anthony said no – while you guys are waiting I am going after him. I commend him for that and it’s the right time to go after him.

“Obviously there is a little glitch in his armour – Tyson showed that. Wladimir is definitely beatable and you have to go in there positive. Joshua has got a lot in his head right now, lots of people will be there and there is a lot of pressure, but he’s focused and he knows what he wants to do. I think it’s going to be a great fight.”

Pochettino Asks Spurs To Focus On Title

Featured Image

Mauricio Pochettino has urged his squad to ignore the speculations about their future and focus entirely on their title charge.

Spurs are second on the table and four points behind Chelsea on the table. With an important week for Pochettino’s men starting on Wednesday against Crystal Palace.

Talk of Spurs stars joining Europe’s top clubs have started, with Xavi claiming Guardiola will move in for Alli.

However, Pochettino told the media on Tuesday that now is not the time to be thinking about such matters.

“In the next three to four weeks we must give our best efforts,” he said. “The players must try to focus. Don’t think about holidays, rumours, what will happen next season.

“I cannot guarantee anything in life. The most important is to enjoy the present. In the future, we take the best decision for the club.

“After three years you can see how the team is improving every year and all our decisions so far are good. Trust in the club that we will take the best decision for the club to achieve, to improve next season again.

“We care a lot about the club and now we must focus on the present to try to help the team and club to be there, if Chelsea drop points.

“It will be special if, in the last season at White Hart Lane, we win the Premier League.”

Pochettino added: “We must give our best to try and get the three points because we are fighting for the Premier League and, if it is not possible to catch Chelsea, to be in the top four.

“I think the next six games are all finals.”

Asked if six wins would be required, Pochettino added: “Of course and then it is not sure that you can catch up Chelsea.

“Today it is up to Chelsea (who host Southampton) and for us tomorrow it is a game we must win.”

Joshua: I Banned My Mom From Wembley

Anthony Joshua has banned his mom from coming to Wembley to watch his fight against Klitschko.

The British boxer has also told her to stay away from the TV, she will be informed of the winner via phone call.

However, his father Robert will be in attendance at Wembley, which will be filled with 90, 000 fans.

Joshua said: “My old man will be there but I don’t really let my mum come to my fights.

“I’ve banned her. It’s not a place where you want to see your kid, I don’t think, at a fight. My dad can watch it, but not my mum.

“I would rather she not be there. One of my cousins will call her after the fight. She enjoys it all, though, and she gets a few freebies.”

Joshua’s IBF belt will be on the line, but he will not be following Tyson Fury’s game plan.

He added: “I haven’t watched the Fury fight much. Fury is completely different to me.

“I can’t box the way Fury boxed and expect it to be as simple as that for me. I just look at little parts of it, not the whole thing.

“Klitschko just didn’t show up in that fight. A lot of great fighters have made mistakes and come back, so I’m expecting the best Klitschko.

“I’m just worried about what I can do. Everyone is different when you fight them. I’m going to worry about myself and how I’m feeling.”

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday said the Continuous Voters Registration beginning nationwide on April 27, would run till few months to the 2019 general election.

Speaking at a one-day forum for election stakeholders held in Minna, the INEC Secretary in Niger, Aliyu Bungudu, said that the registration exercise was to ensure that no eligible voter was denied the right to elect leaders of their choice.

The secretary further promised the stakeholders that INEC would not fail its responsibility in that regard, even as he urged them to mobilise the people to get registered.

He said; “The voter registration exercise will continue at the local government levels when it commences, till few months to the conduct of 2019 general elections.

“The exercise will scale down to registration areas/wards and polling units that record zero registration during the last exercise.”

Mr. Bungudu, therefore, called on eligible Nigerians who have attained the age of 18, to take the advantage of the exercise to be registered.

According to him, the voter registration would be conducted in public and open places for ease of access.

He also pleaded with those who registered but did not collect their permanent voter cards to come forward for collection.

Just In: Court Grants IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu Bail, Prohibits Him From Press Interview

Featured Image

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday granted the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, bail on health grounds.

During today’s ruling, Justice Binta Nyako, who presided over the case, said that she was convinced that Kanu was ill and needed more medical attention than what was given to him by the Nigerian Prisons.

She, however, barred the IPOB leader from granting press interview while on bail, further handing a stern warning to the defendant not to participate in any rally or be found in a crowd of more than 10 persons in the course of the bail.

“The first defendant, Nnamdi Kanu, has appealed to the court for bail based on health grounds and it is only the living that can stand trial.

“So I am minded to grant him bail so that he can attend to his health and face his trial alive,” Nyako said.

Nyako gave other bail conditions to include three sureties in the sum of N100 million each.

She added that one of the sureties must be a senior highly placed person of Igbo extraction such as a senator.

The other surety must be a highly respected Jewish leader since Kanu said his religion was Judaism, while the third person must be a highly respected person who owns landed property and is resident in Abuja.

The judge further ordered that Kanu must deposit both his Nigerian and British passports with the court and that a report on the progress of his health must be made available to her on a monthly basis.

However, she refused bail to the three other defendants standing trial with Kanu, namely Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi.

Kanu was arrested on October 15, 2015 in Lagos and charged with treason and terrorism.

Michail Antonio Believes West Ham Are Close To Challenging For European Football Spots

Featured Image

West Ham winger Michail Antonio says the club need four new players to compete for the European places. 

“We need to sign a couple of players – a right-back, one more centre-half, two strikers – and get more goals,” he told ESPN. “If we can do that, we will be up there for European places.”

Since Antonio’s £7 million move from Nottingham Forest, he has scored 17 goals in 52 Premier League starts. And, after rejecting a call-up from Jamaica, he has been called up to the England squad.

He also offered an update on his bid to return to fitness.

‘I am looking to be back around July, basically getting ready for beginning of next season,’ he told ESPN. ‘I’m hoping to be involved in the majority of preseason training. I might miss the first week, but I’ll hopefully be back for the rest of it. 

Antonio was full of praise for manager Slaven Bilic and insisted the Hammers boss has improved his game significantly.

‘He has given me the opportunity to play games and given me the freedom to do what I do on the pitch,’ Antonio said. 

‘I need that freedom; I pop up in lots of different positions and he has given me freedom to do that.

Arsenal Won’t Sell Olivier Giroud And Marseille Have Not Made Any Bid- Arsene Wenger

Featured Image

Arsene Wenger says Arsenal have no received an approach from Marseille for Olivier Giroud and says he wants to keep the striker at the club.

The Gunners manager has been speaking at his pre-match press conference amid rumours the Ligue 1 side are interested in the Frenchman.

“I have had no approach from Marseille and we want to keep Olivier Giroud at the club,” Wenger said.

Giroud signed a long-term contract extension with Arsenal this season, but has only played sparingly as Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck have often been preferred up front by Wenger.

When asked if he was looking at transfer targets for the summer, Wenger said: “Yes, of course. I work until the last day of the season for the present and the future.

“Transfer targets are the future of the club and therefore they are very important. What happens with me is a bit secondary, what is important is the future of the club.”

Bournemouth Defender Steve Cook Linked With Watford Switch

Featured Image

Bournemouth defender Steve Cook has been linked with a move to Watford, according to the Daily Mail.

He has been a regular in the Cherries team this season as they look to secure another Premier League campaign and has caught the eye of Hornets boss Walter Mazzarri. 

Cook, 25, has started 34 times in the Premier League for Eddie Howe this season so is unlikely to be let go by the Cherries this summer.

If Cook did decide the time was right to leave the south coast – he’s still got two-years left on the contract he signed last May – he would certainly cost more than the £150,000 Bournemouth paid Brighton for him in 2012.

Watford are looking to strengthen their central defensive options again over the summer though, and The Daily Mail believe Cook is someone they are looking at.

Christian Kabasele, Adrian Mariappa and Younes Kaboul all moved to Vicarage Road in last summer’s transfer window, with Sebastian Prodl, Craig Cathcart and Miguel Britos already at the club, but they still want more strength in depth in that department.

Niger Vows To Stop Open Defecation

Featured Image

The Niger State Environmental Protection Agency (NISEPA) is to collaborate with the Police to embark on night patrol in areas with records of open defecation.

Mr Lucky Barau, General Manager of NISEPA, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna on Tuesday that areas such as Tunga roundabout, Kpakungu under the bridge, and under mobile bridge, would be under surveillance to ensure that nobody defecated in the areas henceforth.

Barau added that the agency would also collaborate with the Nigeria Prison Service on the matter.

“The state government will no longer tolerate people defecating openly, especially along major roadsides used by motorists.

“ We have received reports from concerned individuals of the unpleasant odour perceived by road users while passing the road. We will not condone indecent behaviour that will bring discomfort to the public.

“The night patrol will be carried out three times every week and until the culprits are brought to book, if not, we will not relent,” he said.

The general manager warned those in the habit of defecating openly to desist from such practice, adding that such was not healthy for the people.

He urged the people to always include toilet facilities while building houses and offices to avoid indiscriminate defecation in public places.

Barau added that the agency would continue to sensitise the residents to the danger of open defecation.

“The sensitisation will be extended to villages on the danger of not keeping the environment clean,” Barau added.

He appealed to well-to-do-individuals in the state to venture into the business of building public toilets in strategic and overcrowded places to address public defecation.

“If Buhari Can Come To Me, I’ll Heal Him” – Guru Maharaji

Featured Image

The Founder of the One Love Family, Sat Guru Maharaji has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to consult him urgently for healing of his ‘protracted’ illness.

Maharaji Ji made the call on Monday while addressing pressmen after a week-long program held to celebrate the 30th year anniversary of the Maharaji Village, along Lagos-Ibadan expressway in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.

“He is supposed to seek help from black men and not white men in London,” Daily Post quoted him as saying.

“Remember the last time he was going out of the country for medical attention, I was the only one who said he would come back safe. What I’m saying is that let’s harness our power here to save ourselves.

“You cannot sit down and be saying Maharaji Ji is not a Muslim or Christian. Is God a Muslim? So, if he can come to me, I’ll heal  him.”

On the Southern Kaduna crisis, the spiritual leader said that if only the people can invoke the holy name of Maharaji Ji, there will be solutions to the crisis ravaging the southern part of the state.

Earlier in the day, while receiving the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji, Ogunguniso 1 who was represented by his two wives, Kudirat and Rashidat Adetunji, Maharaji ji said the that civilization started in Ibadan.

He said, “Ibadan is the first Nazareth while Ile Ife is the first Israel. Contrary to insinuation that Maharaji ji sucks blood, I’m rather a saviour whose name is Akanji Akinbami Ajirobatan, a Yoruba son from Adeoyo in Ibadan and I was prophesied by the first Maharaji ji as his successor.

“I enjoin us to go back to our root as my mission is to save Yoruba culture from extinction and put stop to religious discrimination in the land. The celebration is a reawakening to embrace love and make sure we don’t longer work in vain but reap from our labour”.

“Maharaji ji is a holy name and a paragon of virtues whom everybody must celebrate. We therefore want your royal majesty to support us to promote the faith to better our society. Ibadan was chosen as the next place of Maharaji ji after USA because it is a powerful land”.
