Selfish Player, you Don’t Care about Others Scoring Goals – Cassano Blasts Cristiano Ronaldo

  Former Italy international, Antonio Cassano, has slammed Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, ahead of the Bianconer’s Serie A clash with Crotone on Monday. Cassano said Ronaldo is a ‘selfish’ player that doesn’t give a damn about his teammates scoring goals.

Biffo Canvasses Support for Grassroots Football Development

Kwara United Technical Adviser Abdullahi Biffo Kwara United Technical Adviser Abdullahi Biffo has called on sports administrators across the country to place more emphasis on youth football development rather than winning at the grassroots levels. Speaking during an online programme, Biffo said the winning at all cost at the grassroots level has hampered the growth of football in Nigeria.
