Danfo buses will not be scrapped – Governor Sanwo-Olu says

Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that the yellow buses popularly known as ‘danfo’ will not be scrapped as earlier reported, but would rather be remodeled to meet modern standards. Recall that in February this year, the state Commissioner for Transportation, Frederick Oladeinde, said the yellow buses do not have a place in the transportation master plan of the state, suggesting that they would soon be scrapped by the Sanwo-Olu administration. However, during an interview with Channels TV over the weekend, Governor Sanwo-Olu said it will be unfair to scrap ‘danfos’ as they have served Lagos residents for a long time. “It will be unfair for us. These are important stakeholders. They served our citizens. They served Lagosians for a long time. It became the print of...

Why Tottenham May Avoid £30m Mourinho Pay-off if he is Sacked

Tottenham Hotspur may have to pay less than the reported £30million in pay-off, if they decide to sack Jose Mourinho as manager this summer, Daily Mail reports. Rumours had claimed Mourinho would be due a huge compensation if the club decided to sack him ahead of his contract expiring in 2023. The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss is said to be earning around £15million a year with Spurs and with no break clause, chairman Daniel Levy would have to stump up the remainder of his expected salary should he choose to let the manager go. However, Mourinho’s payout is dependent on Tottenham’s league position and if the club qualifies for Europe. Failure to reach the Champions League or Europa league would see his entitlement reduced in the event he was to lose his job....

Police officer accused of raping and physically assaulting two female colleagues

The UK's Metropolitan Police is investigating allegations a serving male officer raped two female colleagues. Three years after the allegations were made, a BBC investigation with the Bureau of Investigative Journalism found that the officer was not charged or suspended, but will face a misconduct hearing. Both women were reportedly involved in ‘abusive’ relationships with the unnamed officer, before being introduced to each other by a mutual friend. The BBC investigation says both women made separate allegations of physical and sexual assault in 2017, which were denied. An investigation by Essex Police and the Crown Prosecution Service was then reportedly dropped in 2019 because of a lack of evidence. One of the women, whose name was changed to ‘Holly’, by the BBC to pr...

Chelsea to Continue Paying Frank Lampard Until End of Season

  Former Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, will continue to be paid by the club until the end of this season, SportsMail reports. The Blues have spent over £110million in pay-offs to sacked coaches during the Roman Abramovich era. However, they are now moving towards heavily incentivised, performance-related contracts, to minimise future compensation payments. So, the club’s decision to fire Lampard last week, will not significantly add to the £110m bill, because his three-year deal contained a break clause after two years. Therefore, they will only have to continue paying the 42-year-old until the end of this season. His replacement, Thomas Tuchel, has been given an 18-month contract.

Roman Abramovich Has Dished Out £112.5M In Compensation To Sacked Chelsea Bosses

Frank Lampard was railroaded as surely as the trains which still rumble along the old tracks behind the main stand at Stamford Bridge. The German era was already dawning on Chelsea. At another hefty price. Roman Abramovich does not sack managers with quite the frequency of that rusty stretch of the London Overground but the costs of keeping his unwanted livestock rolling out has to be just as expensive. Even though the King's Road's favourite son goes for a bargain handshake. Because the club had not yet triggered his new contract extension beyond the remaining six months of his old deal, Lampard collects £2million compensation rather than a projected £6million. Oh, well. Only Rafa Benitez and Guus Hiddink, who were out of contract and cost Roman sweet nothing, went chea...
