Arteta speaks on ‘little mafia’ within Arsenal squad

  Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has told his players they must take Gary Neville’s harsh criticism “on the chin” ahead of their Europa League quarter-final clash against Sparta Prague on Thursday. The Gunners were beaten 3-0 by Liverpool on Saturday night, with their lethargic performance even more damaging than the result. Neville, speaking on Monday Night Football, particularly laid into skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette, branding them a “little mafia”. While Arteta would not be drawn on whether a disconnect had emerged between himself and his players, he feels any criticism of the side was justified. When asked to respond to Neville’s “little mafia” comments at a press conference on Wednesday, Arteta replied: “No, no respons...

Gary Neville reveals some Arsenal players have become ”mafia” against Artet

  Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville, has claimed a group of Arsenal players have constituted themselves into “a little mafia” under Mikel Arteta. Neville was speaking about the Gunners’ 3-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend on Monday Night Football. According to him, he felt “uncomfortable” with what he saw at the Emirates on Saturday night. Neville singled out their front six – Dani Ceballos, Thomas Partey, Martin Odegaard, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette for criticism. He said: “I have to say, coming out of Saturday, we don’t know what goes on behind the scenes at Arsenal but there were a few of those players on the front part of the pitch, it looked like a little mafia. “It looked like a little group of players who w...

NNPC Is A Mafia Organisation… I Will Privatise It Even If They’ll Kill Me – Atiku

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has described the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) as a “mafia organisation”, vowing to privatise it if elected. Speaking in Lagos during an interactive session with the business community on Wednesday, Atiku said he would take the step even if doing so would cost him his life. He explained that he sold the idea to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo whom he deputised between 1999 and 2007 but that the former president did not approve of it. Atiku said he is convinced that NNPC would run better if not managed by the government. “Let me go back to my experience. When we got into office, I walked up to my boss and said “Sir, there are two mafia organisations in government: one is the Nigeri...

Too Old To Be Convincingly Fearsome?

You can’t play a convincing mafia-allied bad guy if you look like you’re almost ready to move into Assisted Living. You have to look young and fit enough to roll around and wrestle on the pavement and then clock your opponent with your sub-nosed .38. You have to look and sound like a mean snarly dog.

Church member giving N42m tithe is chicken feed – Kukah The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Kukah, tells TOBI AWORINDE his issues with the modus operandi of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war You have consistently criticised the anti-corruption war of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government. Do you still doubt the anti-corruption war in view of recent developments? Like millions of other Nigerians, you both overstate my intention and may have read too much into my text because this led the ignorant to conclude that I was against the war. I was, and still am, against the lack of vision, clarity, diagnosis, strategy and intellectual depth of what we call a fight against corruption. Conceptually, I was a...

Britain is The World’s Most Corrupt Nation – Expert

A journalist who has spent over a decade documenting the criminal dealings of the mafia has named Britain the most corrupt country in the world. 36-year-old Roberto Saviano who wrote the best-selling exposés Gomorrah and ZeroZeroZero, made the comments at the Hay Literary Festival. He has been living under police protection since publishing revelations about members of the Camorra, a powerful Neapolitan branch of the mafia, in 2006. He said: “If I asked you what is the most corrupt place on Earth you might tell me well it’s Afghanistan, maybe Greece, Nigeria, the South of Italy and I will tell you it’s the UK. “It’s not the bureaucracy, it’s not the police, it’s not the politics but what is corrupt is the financial capital. 90 per cent of the owners of capital in London have their head...
