Thiago Silva Takes Decision on Chelsea Future

  Chelsea defender, Thiago Silva, will sign a one-year contract extension at Stamford Bridge, Le10Sport reports. Silva signed an initial 12-month deal when he joined from Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent last summer. Despite suffering from injury problems, the Brazilian has shown he has lost little of his quality. Silva worked under Thomas Tuchel in Paris and the German tactician appreciates the defender’s leadership, even if he has not been able to call on him as much as he’d like in recent weeks. Chelsea inserted a 12-month extension option in Silva’s initial deal, but it required both sides to agree in order for it to be activated. Silva believes he has more to give and has agreed to extend his deal, meaning he will stay at Chelsea until he is at least 37....

Why Biden Embraces Nigerians And Shuns Buhari – Farooq Kperogi

It is by now evident that although President Joe Biden appreciates and identifies with Nigerians (certainly in more ways than Donald Trump did), he has nothing but stone-cold disdain for the inert, isolated mannequin in Aso Rock that pretends to be Nigeria’s “president.” Biden’s first call to an African president (on March 3) after his inauguration wasn’t to the president of the continent’s most populous country; it was to Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta. Even in the aftermath of his electoral triumph in November 2020, Biden also only called South Africa’s Cyril Ramaphosa. And on February 26, Vice President Kamala Harris spoke to President Felix Tshisekedi of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Nigeria’s geographic and demographic heft in the African continent hasn’t caused it to deserv...
