AFCON: NFF Owing Gernot Rohr Since January

Published

on

Just a month plus to the beginning of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, the Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr is not a happy man.

This was revealed to newsmen by a very close source to the team who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The source further revealed that the Franco-German Coach’s contract has been severally breached by the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation who contracted Rohr.

“There are certain clauses in the contract of Coach Rohr that is known to only the NFF and the Coach. Since the Coach is a very close friend he has often complained bitterly to me that his financial benefits have not been met by the NFF.

“The last time Rohr received his salary was December 2018 and the three months ahead payment was not done as it was widely publicised then.

“Even as we speak right now the Coach still didn’t get his salaries from January 2019 up to date. So how do you want him to be happy going into the final lap of preparations for the 2019 AFCON in Egypt? In fact the only thing that can make him happy is for the NFF to pay his salary up to date before going to the AFCON competition.

“Another thing that the Coach is really complaining about is the non reimbursement of the expenses incurred in Niger Republic when he was with the Flying Eagles for the U20 Africa Cup of Nations.

“This money that he spent on the trip including flight ticket and hotel bills are yet to be paid after he made several attempts to get refund from the NFF.

“All these and other undue pressures have made the job very difficult for him. If not for the sake of some senior players in the team he could have called it quits. But something has to be done to make the job conducive for him to concentrate on his duties”, the impeccable source disclosed to newsmen.

‘Winning Is So Addictive’- Man City Boss Pep Guardiola Ahead Of FA Cup Final

Published

on

Manchester City forward, Raheem Sterling, has admitted being a Manchester United fan.

The England forward, who stars for City these days, said when he was younger, he was firmly a Red.

The 24-year-old Sterling enjoyed another brilliant season for Pep Guardiola’s side scoring 17 goals and adding 10 assists in 34 Premier League games.

But despite playing for City, as well as Liverpool before them, Sterling admitted he grew up a huge supporter of United.

Sterling said he was at the 2007 FA Cup final, which saw Chelsea defeat United at Wembley.

“I was at the final in 2007,” he told the Mirror.

“I shouldn’t really say this — not now, definitely not now! — but when I was young, I was a massive United fan.

“I had an old United kit, from when they won the last FA Cup.”

WOW!! Premier League Players To Get Yellow Cards If They Request For VAR Next Season

Published

on

Premier League players may be shown a yellow card next season if they gesture for a referee to check a decision with VAR, Sky Sports understand.

Referees will be encouraged to show common sense early in the season as players adapt to the new technology, which will be introduced for the first time for all Premier League games.

All managers and Premier League squads will be visited by PGMOL officials over the summer, to warn them about their conduct.

Referees will stress VAR officials will be monitoring the game constantly, so there is no need for players to call for a review.

If a player mimics the outline of a TV screen with their hands, they are likely to be booked, but much will depend on the manner and body language of the player at the time.

However, the new advice does not constitute a new rule – it comes under existing FA laws on dissent, whereby any show of aggression or overt questioning of a referees decision will result in a yellow card.

Published

on

Former Manchester United and Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, has insisted that he will not be working at Paris Saint-Germain next season as they already have a coach.

Mourinho is ready to return to management and has been linked with PSG.

In an interview with L’Equipe, he was asked about joining two of France’s top clubs.

“It’s impossible [to coach PSG]. You can’t coach a club that’s got a coach! Speak to me about a club where the door is open.

“I don’t have an answer [about Lyon]. I don’t respond to that type of question.

“I’ve a lot of respect for all clubs – those that think of me and those that don’t think of me,” Mourinho said.

Current PSG boss, Thomas Tuchel, is under pressure, after an indifferent domestic campaign and elimination from the Champions League against Manchester United, despite winning the first leg 2-0 away from home.
