I’m not happy with you – Sinclair berates Rio Ferdinand over comment on Phil Jones

Former Premier League star, Trevor Sinclair has berated Rio Ferdinand for asking Phil Jones to leave Manchester United to pave way for younger players. Ferdinand, a former Manchester United star, had told the club’s forgotten defender, Jones to find another club. The former England star believes that Jones is now a waste of time at Old Trafford and should have left Manchester United ‘ages ago’. He blasted the player for blocking an academy player from being part of the first team. After being sidelined with a knee injury for over 18 months, Jones made his comeback in United’s behind-closed-doors friendly against Burnley last week. And speaking with talkSPORT, Sinclair noted that there was nothing wrong with Jones aspiring to get back to United lineup or accep...

Messi is not the answer to PSG’s problems – Thierry Henry

Former Arsenal captain, Thierry Henry, has claimed Lionel Messi is not the answer to Paris Saint-Germain’s problems. Henry hailed Messi as “superhuman”, but feels PSG need to work on their defence if they want to win silverware this season. Messi signed for the Ligue 1 giants on a free transfer after his shock exit from Barcelona, but Henry insists “balance is most important”. Henry said on Amazon Prime: “We are talking about the team in which I played at Barcelona, but people forget to point out that we weren’t conceding a lot of goals. “Teams that don’t concede a lot of goals are not far from the title, or even from the Champions League. “When you have superhuman players, it gets a little easier but when I see how PSG is evolving at the moment, they concede...

LaLiga: Lionel Messi Reveals what Makes him Angry

  Argentina superstar, Lionel Messi has revealed that not playing well in any football game annoys him. Messi also snubbed Sergio Ramos, who he enjoyed a fierce on-pitch rivalry with during the El Clasicos between Barcelona and Madrid, as he picked his toughest defender. The 34-year-old named Stuttgart right-back, Pablo Maffeo, as his toughest man-marker instead. Maffeo, who had three loan spells at Girona earned high praise from Messi for his “intense” man-marking. “Man-marking doesn’t bother me — you know that there will be tough matches and it can be strange to always have someone around you,” Messi told DAZN “In truth, it hasn’t happened to me that often. It doesn’t bother me, but it is strange. Pablo Maffeo of Girona [was the toughest man-marker]. That was i...

We are our own problem in the north, that’s the reason power is about to vacate from the region – Governor Matawalle

Governor Matawalle has stated that the north is the cause of some of the problems witnessed in the region. Matawalle said this in an interview on DW Hausa while firing back at those calling for his removal over his defection. He also dismissed claim of moving to the All Progressives Congress from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because he wanted to seal his second term deal. The Governor said; “Let the people of Zamfara continue engaging with their own business as usual. Those who are mongering this are ignorant. They are worried about the second term, not me. “No one is guaranteed for tomorrow, even an hour per se. I am contented with what Allah made me. As far as I am concerned, if I am done with this first term successfully, I am okay with that. I grateful to Allah a...

Euro 2020: Ian Wright reveals two huge mistake Spain made with Morata in semi-final exit to Italy

  Arsenal and England legend, Ian Wright has pinpointed two huge mistakes Spain made with Alvaro Morata which led to their ouster in the Euro 2020 semi final against Italy. Spain boss, Luis Enrique left Morata, who is his most potent striker on the bench against Italy. Spain dominated the proceeding in the most of the encounter, and were threatening throughout the contest, but didn’t find the back of the net until Morata came off the bench to equalise for La Roja. Wright believes it was an error to keep the Juventus forward on the bench. “They [Spain] are fantastic to watch. You look at some of the players like Pedri, Olmo playing great stuff but when you look in the box? “When they broke through the Italian midfield there’s nobody in the area. There’s nobody to ...

Ronaldo has problems with Juventus teammates – Trezeguet

  Former Juventus striker, David Trezeguet, has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo has problems with teammates at the club. Trezeguet left his role as a brand ambassador at the Italian club earlier this week.
