Chelsea player, Rudiger has made up his

Arsenal legend, Paul Merson says he is convinced that German defender, Antonio Rudiger, who he described as Chelsea’s best player and a world class centre back, will leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season. He, however, added that Frank Lampard, and not Thomas Tuchel is to blame for the player’s decision to leave. Antonio Rudiger’s contract expires at the end of the season but he has refused to agree a new deal with the Blues. The player established himself in the Chelsea squad under Tuchel, helping the west London side stay top of the table. Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and some other Europe’s elite clubs are interested in landing him as a free agent following his impressive displays. However, Merson says the player’s mind is already made up to leave on a free transf...

Ex-Belgium coach Verheyen says Origi needs to leave Liverpool: Does he have the drive?

Former Belgium coach Gert Verheyen says Divock Origi needs to leave Liverpool. The 51-year-old coached Origi at U19 level with his national team, but he feels the striker hasn't developed since his arrival on Merseyside in 2014. “We just don't know how good he is today. In his youth, Divock was a class act. But by staying with Liverpool and playing little, he hasn't developed further," he told Het Nieuwsblad. “Can you blame him [for staying at Anfield]? That's his choice. Liverpool must be a fantastic club to play for. "But at some point you want to play, don't you? “I think it would be a shame for Origi's talent. The only thing I never felt about Divock was the urge – the urge to score, a striker who says 'I scored two, now I want three.' “Not that he didn't do his best....

Liberia vs Nigeria: Gernot Rohr may have a curveball up his sleeve

The composition of the Super Eagles squad leaves room for several alterations in shape, but will the German twist? The average Nigeria supporter gets no joy watching the national team these days, as there’s a sense you already know what to expect: a humdrum, frustrating showing accompanied with the desired result—maximum points. It has broadly felt that way for the last two years, with Gernot Rohr seemingly prioritising results over coherence and recognisable patterns of play. The upshot of this is simple: when you emphasise results over performances, the opprobrium when fans get neither is exacerbated...and can you blame supporters?

Carragher, Redknapp criticise Becker after Liverpool’s 3-2 defeat to West Ham

Former Liverpool stars, Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp, have criticised goalkeeper Alisson Becker following Liverpool’s Premier League 3-2 defeat to West Ham on Sunday. An own goal from Becker and a goal each from Pabio Fornals and Kurt Zouma ensured West Ham defeated Liverpool. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Divock Origi did score for Jurgen Klopp’s side at the London Stadium. But Carragher and Redknapp believe Becker was partly to blame for all three goals the team conceded. “Oh yeah, he’s got to save it. He [Alisson] should have done better on all three goals, no doubt about that,” Carragher told Sky Sports. “In some ways, I’m thinking, “You know what, I would rather run back”. What do we gain out of an offside? Nothing, we’ve just got the ball 60 yards fr...

Blame poverty, your wife mustn’t cook till she dies – Pastor Ibiyeomie blasts men

General Overseer of Salvation Ministry, Bishop David Ibiyeomie has lambasted Nigerian men who constantly complain about their wives’ poor cooking abilities. The renowned gospel preacher, during a sermon on Sunday, asked men who cannot afford to hire a chef to blame their poverty rather than laying complaints against their wives. According to him, he stopped his wife from kitchen activities when he became rich and could afford to hire a chef. He said, “When you hear a man say that my wife does not know how to cook, he is yet to understand love. Let me be very raw with you. “Hire somebody to teach her and it is not even compulsory that she cooks for you, can’t you get a chef?

Arsenal vs Olympiacos: Arteta Names who to Blame for Martinelli’s Snub

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has accepted full responsibility for Gabriel Martinelli’s recent absence. The 19-year-old burst onto the scene last season, where he netted 10 goals in all competitions for the Gunners. But he picked up a serious knee injury in June, which ruled him out of action until December. Since returning to action he is yet to complete 90 minutes and has largely had to settle for cameo appearances off the bench. Ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League last-16 second leg against Olympiacos, Arteta was asked if Martinelli was to blame for his lack of minutes. But he replied: “No if anything it’s my fault. He’s done everything perfect. “His attitude cannot be any better. He needs to be a little bit patient and he will get his chance.”

Chinese Lab Investigated by WHO Over Origin of covid-19, Designed Secret Cages to Breed Bats for Coronavirus Experiments

A Chinese lab in Wuhan, investigated by the World Health Organization over the origins of Covid-19 reportedly designed secret cages for breeding bats for virus experiments. The Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) was found to have filed patents for "bat rearing cages" and "artificial breeding" systems in the months before covid-19 first emerged in 2019 December. The institute located just miles from Covid's ground zero has been subjected to scrutiny since the virus emerged. The World Health Organisation released a report this week exonerating the lab, saying the lab wasn't responsible for Covid-19 origins, but the US and the UK  have branded the WHO's report a "whitewash" after new revelations about the work of Chinese scientists led by Dr Shi Zhengli, months before the ...

Excerpts: The security outfit codenamed ‘Operation Amotekun’ is billed to take off in three days’ time. What is the level of preparation between you and the South-West governors?

You Can’t Blame Only North For The Woes In Nigeria – Fani-Kayode Cautions Ohaneze

I am amongst the strongest critics of northern hegemony and domination and nothing is happening today that I did not say would happen if Buhari was elected President both in 2015 and 2019. Yet the truth is that we cannot blame everything on the north because southern leaders are their own worse enemies. We are weak, divided, petty, ignorant, gullible, naive, petty and cowardly. Worse of all we behave like crabs in a basket: always pulling one another down and always attempting to eclipse and destroy our own brightest stars. Northern hegemony and northern domination is manifest in every sphere and sector of the Nigerian space only because the ever-grovelling, ever-slavish, ever-quivering, ever-quarreling and ever-snivelling southern leaders, who are so comfortable with betraying an...
