Mikel Obi sets new record Ronaldo, Messi, others will be jealous of Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi has been invited by the technical adviser of the Nigeria national team, and because of the invite, the Middlesborough midfielder has set a record that both Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and even Jay-Jay Okocha could not achieve. The former Chelsea star did not play a single qualifying match for the Super Eagles and he has been given an invitation by Gernot Rohr, which makes him enter the record books as the first player to captain Nigeria to the Africa Cup of Nations without featuring in the qualifying series. Argentina captain Lionel Messi never for once featured for the La Albiceleste at a major tournament and without play the qualifiers. The closest Cristiano Ronaldo had was not playing for Portugal at the UEFA Nations League group stages, and will feature during the semifinal this summer. The nearest Nigerian player to that was Joseph Yobo who featured in just one qualifying

Antoine Griezmann will not replace Philippe Coutinho at Barcelona at the end of the season, according to the Brazilian’s agent. Despite an encouraging start to life at Barca, Coutinho has failed to recapture the form he showed at Liverpool before his €160million switch in January 2018. This term, the attacking midfielder has managed only five La Liga goals in 34 appearances and failed to nail down a place in the starting XI, with 12 of his league outings coming from the bench. Coutinho’s underwhelming form has seen him become a target for Barca supporters who have jeered him on several occasions in recent months, while media reports have linked him with a move. Griezmann’s announcement on Tuesday that he will leave Atletico Madrid in the coming months will likely increase speculation surrounding Coutinho, though his representative is convinced the Frenchman potentially joining Barca will not impact his client. “It’s untrue that Griezmann is going to replace Philippe at Barcelona,” A

[ Sports ] Full Story How Messi Was Abandoned At Anfield ( Liverpool )

Barcelona team bus left Lionel Messi at Anfield, after the Spanish Giants’ defeat by Liverpool. The Barcelona team which had a commanding advantage after securing a 3-0 win in the first leg at Camp Nou last week, suffered a miserable night as Liverpool completed a stunning comeback to knock Barca out of the Champions League on Tuesday evening with a 4-0. Immediately after the match, Messi was required to undergo a doping test. El Chiringuito reported that the process took so long, that Barca’s team bus headed to the airport while Messi was still at Anfield. Messi was eventually able to provide a urine sample, while special arrangements were made to reunite the Argentine with the rest of the squad and coaching staff before they traveled back to Spain. Messi also walked through the mixed zone at Anfield much later than the rest of Barca’s players, but said nothing to the media as he was escorted out of the stadium.

Zinedine Zidane 'more than happy' to join Chelsea FC Zinedine Zidane is still keen on the Chelsea FC job, according to reports Zinedine Zidane is still keen to take over as Chelsea FC’s new manager despite the west London club’s transfer ban, according to reports in the British media. The Sun is reporting that Zidane is still “more than happy” to take over at Stamford Bridge, despite the Blues having been hit with a two-window transfer suspension by Fifa for the illegal recruitment of 29 young players. According to the same report, the former Real Madrid boss is keen to take over at Chelsea FC and could be given as much as £200m to spend on new signings this summer.

SPORTS] Ten Footballers Who Reportedly Slept With Their Team Mate's

Despite whatever sport we need to discuss, a group resembles a family. Colleagues in pro athletics are downright siblings. The truth of the truth of the matter is that these folks get to know each other than they go through with their particular families. Would you be able to envision how excruciating it would be for somebody within that fraternity to conspicuously betray another member’s trust? All things considered, actually this happens more frequently than individuals might want to accept. Football (soccer), particularly in the Premier League and the other significant groups in Europe, is a game that unites individuals from a wide range of societies. Just in the Premier League, we have players who originated from Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, Japan, and all edges of the globe. It is a given that a portion of these folks will have unexpected qualities in comparison to the others, yet paying little mind to the way of life that you originate from, the one thing that is unsuitab

SPORTS] Zidane Said To Coach Chelsea

According to The Sun, which runs the story as an exclusive, Sarri is ‘running out of backers’ at Chelsea, while there is ‘growing support’ for Zidane. The Frenchman is currently out of work after leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season, and the newspaper explains he is ‘very keen’ on moving to the Premier League. Furthermore, Zidane’s appointment would ‘encourage’ Eden Hazard to sign a new contract, given he idolises the former Blancos boss. The iconic midfielder led Madrid to three consecutive Champions Leagues and a Spanish title between 2016 and 2018. Sarri, on the other hand, is reportedly facing a player revolt after recent heavy defeats, although he still has an EFL Cup Final to look forward to.

Victor Moses picks English Premier League Club over Turkish Club Chelsea winger, Victor Moses appears set to snub a January transfer offer from Fernebahce of Turkey, as  he is set to opt for either Cardiff City or Crystal Palace. The report out of Queensland indicates that Moses prefers staying in England, hence his lack of interest in the offer from Fenerbahce, who are said to have approached him for formal discussions. However, Fernebahce’s move came few days after Moses had also been taken on a tour of another London-based club, Fulham, who are also in a pivotal position to snatch the former Super Eagles’ star. The 28-year-old winger is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge, having been restricted to just five appearances under The Blues’ new coach, Maurizio Sarri, but he is not keen on going to Turkey. The Turkish Super Lig club, which have a long history of relations with Nigerian players, are after a tested winger, who can fill in down both left and right flanks, hence t

Sari re-sign Diego Costa to Chelsea for any price now Chelsea have been told they should be looking to splash out on their former forward and seal a second big-money agreement with Atletico Madrid, Peter Crouch has suggested that Maurizio Sarri “breaks the bank” to bring striker Diego Costa back to Stamford Bridge. The Stoke City striker is adamant that the return of the Brazil-born Spain international would remedy their current problems up front. He believes that if a top striker is not signed before next season, the Blues will not be title contenders due to their poor goal return.”I have concerns about whether they will mount a proper title challenge next season,” Crouch said. “Chelsea have scored the fewest goals of the top six sides. A return of 38 from 21 matches isn’t enough to win you a title, no matter how good your defence is. “The one thing you need is someone to score you 30 goals and they do not have a player like Harry Kane, Mo Salah or Sergio Aguero. “Not so long ago

Chelsea’s January signings: 5 of their best transfers Fernando Torres’ infamous move to Chelsea from Liverpool for a then-British record of £50m in January 2011 largely defines the risk such a market comes with. Indeed, the Blues’ ill-advised move for the Spaniard stands out as the worst ever January deal, proving quick moves in the New Year sales do little to provide buyers with value for money.  However, with current boss Maurizio Sarri  reportedly (via the Mirror)  plotting an early overhaul in this the first month of 2019, the Torres deal shouldn’t be the only one that stands out. Yes, he flopped miserably, but the West London giants have enjoyed success in years gone by. Club legends have been purchased during this time of year. Players who have helped the club win league and Champions League titles over the years have arrived during the mid-point of the campaign, so Sarri and Roman Abramovich should be inspired.
