See Why Neymar Asks UEFA To Expel Barcelona From Champions League

Neymar

Neymar “asked Uefa to expel Barcelona from the Champions League” after they failed to honour a £23million loyalty payment, according to reports in Spain.
AS believe the Brazilian star was advised by his lawyers to take the extreme action.
Neymar joined Paris Saint-Germain from Barca in a world-record shattering £198million deal this summer, clearly on bad terms.
However, despite the player’s plea, Uefa were reportedly quick to snub the Brazil forward’s request.
Meanwhile, director at the La Liga giants, Raul Sanllehi, has officially left the club.

Sanllehi played a vital role in bringing Neymar to Spain four years ago, but has now left.
Spanish newspaper Marca claim he has done so “on his own volition” but was “upset and frustrated” when Neymar stormed out of the Nou Camp.
Big-spending PSG also face a Champions League dilemma of their own, according to El Pais.
The Spanish outlet claim the Ligue 1 giants may be forced to sell eight players or face expulsion from Europe’s elite competition over breach of Financial Fair Play regulations.
Angel Di Maria, Javier Pastore, Blaise Matuidi, Lucas Moura, Julian Draxler, Hatem Ben Arfa and Thiago Silva are now expected to leave in January.

Nigeria is the first African country to qualify for World Cup 2018

Nigeria have become the first African side to book their place at 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ after a 1-0 win over Zambia in Uyo earned them an unassailable lead at the head of Group B.
Alex Iwobi repeated his feat of being the thorn in the Zambians’ side, once again finding himself on the scoresheet against the Chipolopolo. Having scored in the first Group B game between the sides, he came off the bench in the second half to end Zambian hopes of creating a final day climax on 6 November, instead seeing the Super Eagles book a spot at their sixth finals.
Seen by many as the toughest group of the continent’s five qualifying tables, Nigeria have been dominant, remaining unbeaten throughout and only dropping points thanks to a Cameroonian penalty on the road in Yaounde. The 4-0 win a few days earlier against the reigning African champions was a particular highlight.
With a rich youthful streak through the side, seeing the likes of Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Moses Simon score crucial goals throughout qualifying, there will be something of a fresh feel to the side who have only missed one tournament – Germany 2006 – since their debut in 1994.
Led by the seasoned John Obi Mikel, who made his belated World Cup debut at Brazil 2014, they will hoping to better their Round of 16 exit from three years ago – the furthest stage they have reached, having also done so in their first two appearances.

Referendum Blues: A tale of Barcelona Fc and Real Madrid Fc

By Muyiwa Olayinka

Real Madrid Player, Benzema
Suarez, Barcelona Player

If someone like Nigerian prophets always do, predicted that Barcelona Fc could play a football match in an empty stadium, many would have said it is not possible.

The reason is not far fetched. Barcelona Fc is one of the successful football club in the whole world. The club is wealthy and paraded galaxy of stars like the “merciless” Lionel Messi, Suarez etc. Barcelona played on Sunday, September 1st 2017 in a closed stadium without not a single fan cheering them to victory. The Santiago Bernabeu and Camp Nou were worlds apart on Sunday. Real Madrid played to a tumultuous crowd filled with fans.

Barcelona FC played its Spanish league game against Las Palmas in a completely empty stadium amid horrific violence in Catalonia. The football club had openly backed an independence referendum, and criticised the Spanish government for trying to stop the vote by force – a move that has left hundreds injured in the state. Its president said that their decision to play the match behind closed doors was made by the club as a way to protest against the government’s actions.

Barca had wanted to postpone their match against Las Palmas amid safety concerns, but were told by Spain’s Professional Football League (LFP) that they would face losing six points if they failed to go ahead with the fixture.

Making a statement of its own, Las Palmas’ players had the Spanish flag embroidered onto their shirts ahead of the match. Barcelona won 3-0.

However, the mood at the Bernabeu was rather different. Up against Espanyol, the only professional Catalan club that has stayed quiet in the lead-up to the referendum, Real Madrid’s fans brought Spain flag and sang songs in support of their nation.
Before the match, supporters were handed out cards with the message “Todos somos España” (“We are all Spain”) and those were held up in the 12th minute amid chants of “Viva España!” (“Long live Spain!”)
Those went on throughout a match in which Madrid did not play well and, at times, it appeared that the team’s problems at home may continue. Prior to this game, Zinedine Zidane’s side had failed to win any of their Liga fixtures at the Santiago Bernabeu so far this term.
Two very good goals by Isco made sure that Los Blancos did end up with a win, however, although Espanyol came close to scoring on several occasions in something of a subdued showing from the home team.
Hundreds of people were hurt in Catalunya after heavy-handed tactics from police forces sent in from all over Spain to halt the referendum for independece, considered illegal by the Spanish state. So far more than 800 are injured in the referendum induced clashes
The violent scenes shocked the nation, and after Barca beat Las Palmas 3-0 in front of an empty Camp Nou, there were protests all over the country, including a massive demonstration in Madrid’s Puerta del Sol.
There is no love lost between Barca and Madrid, of course, but supporters of Los Blancos were keen to show their colours on Sunday. And despite the unseemly scenes in Catalunya earlier in the day provoked by the police, the message from madridistas was clear — they are Spanish and proud of it.

Serena Williams gives birth to baby girl

Serena Williams posing nude with baby bumps

Serena Williams, an American tennis star. has given birth to a baby girl, the first child for the former world number one tennis player, her coach Patrick Mouratoglou said on Twitter on Friday.The 35-year-old American, who is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, has not competed since winning the Australian Open in January but has posted several videos to social media showing her hitting balls during her pregnancy.

“Congratulations @SerenaWilliams for your baby girl. I am so happy for you and I feel your emotion,” Mouratoglou wrote.

“Btw … I wish you a speedy recovery… we have a lot of work ahead of us,” he added.

Williams and Ohanian have yet to officially confirm the birth, but the reports she had quickly became the talk of the tournament, which Williams has won six times.
“A baby girl? Well, I hope she doesn’t play tennis,” world number three Garbine Muguruza said with a smile during a news conference.

Fellow American Sloane Stephens said she expected to see a lot of the newborn.

“I am very happy for her,” she said. “I cannot wait to see the little baby girl on tour because I am sure she will be around.”

Williams confirmed her pregnancy in April hours after triggering frenzied speculation when she accidentally posted a short-lived selfie on social media with the caption: “20 weeks”.

Williams, the world’s highest-paid female athlete, was about two months pregnant when she captured her 23rd grand slam singles title at the Australian Open, one short of the all-time record held by Australian Margaret Court.

Other women have left the tour to have children and returned at a high level, although none has done so at Williams’ age.

Kim Clijsters of Belgium retired and had a child before coming back at age 26 and winning three grand slam titles.

Australians Evonne Goolagong Cawley and Court also won grand slam titles after having children.

Morata moves to Chelsea in a club record £60m transfer

Chelsea have reached an agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of 24-year-old Alvaro Morata from Spain to London.

Morata, who is left with medicals and personal terms to complete the deal is the Pre,mier League’s fourth signing of the summer, after goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Antonio Rudiger and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Morata scored 20 goals last season after rejoining Real from Juventus.

He won La Liga and the Champions League with Real Madrid last season with most of his appearances  as a substitute.

Morata could replace Spain team-mate Diego Costa, who says he has been told by manager Antonio Conte that he is no longer in Chelsea’s plans.

Click this link below to see the complete story:

http://9jafans.com/2017/07/20/chelsea-sign-alvaro-morata-club-record-60m-transfer/

Manchester United had been interested in Morata prior to signing Everton striker Romelu Lukaku for an initial £75m. Curiously, Chelsea were also in the run to bring back their former player before the Belgian opted to re-unite with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

“I’m going to the team managed by the coach who has placed the most faith in me, and that’s great for me,” Morata told AS on Wednesday 

Morata joined Real Madrid’s youth team in 2008 and was handed his senior debut aged 18 in 2010.

The 6ft 3in striker moved to Italy in 2014, scoring 27 goals in two years for Juventus, winning both Serie A and the Coppa Italia twice and playing in the 2015 Champions League final.

Real exercised a buy-back option in June 2016 to take him back to the Bernabeu.

Morata has won 20 caps for Spain, scoring nine goals, since his international debut in 2014.

Statistics

  • Morata’s conversion rate last season was 27%, the highest of any striker to score 10 or more goals in La Liga in 2016-17; he scored 15 goals from 55 shots.
  • His goals won Real Madrid 13 points in La Liga last season; only Cristiano Ronaldo won more for the side with 15.

The jury is already out on whether Morata will be able to seamlessly slot into the striking role at the Champions.

Some are of the view that the aggression and toughness of unwanted top scorer, Diego Costa are missing in the rather subtle Spaniard. Others, on the other hand contend that Morata’s conversion rate puts him among the best strikers out there.

As shown over the years, it is certain that the Spanish game will improve tremendously under Antonio Conte. The Italian is good at this -One only need to look at Nigeria’s Victor Moses

Neymar rumoured to be headed to Paris Saint Germain

Neymar

The rumour is strong out there that Barcelona superstar Neymar has reportedly agreed a deal to sign for Paris Saint-Germain.

Brazilian sports broadcasting giant Esporte Interactivo claim Neymar has been convinced of PSG’s project — of which he will be the star — and has verbally agreed a contract with the Ligue 1 side.

Neymar’s close friend and compatriot Dani Alves recently snubbed a move to Manchester City in favour of PSG and it seems that may have been part of the club’s attempt to lure the forward to France.

Neymar enjoying himself with his team mates

The former Santos man’s release clause is €222million (£197.3million), which PSG would happily pay. If the French club triggers this clause, it will imply that  Barcelona would not be able to stop Neymar leaving if he wanted to go.

Barcelona officials, however, are confident that he has no intention of leaving them. They believe that, like last summer, the striker and his camp will reject overtures from PSG.

“Selling Neymar is not something the club would think about,” spokesman Josep Vives said at a press conference. “We are very calm.

“He is one of the most important players we have, we will not consider any offers we receive for him.”

Meanwhile, the fast and skillful Brazilian has rejoined his team mates for pre-season. Looking refreshed and raring to go, Neymar looked happy as he warmed up beside Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

Chelsea Sign Real Madrid Forward Alvaro Morata

Three weeks ago if you’d said that Romelu Lukaku was going to sign for Manchester United and Alvaro Morata was going to sign for Chelsea then people would have thought you were mad. But three weeks is a long time in football.

To be fair the two strikers moving to the clubs they eventually signed for is not completely out of the blue with Jose Mourinho having been linked with Lukaku before and Antonio Conte having been linked with Morata before, but that only tells part of the story.

At the beginning of the summer it was reported that the big Belgian was almost certainly heading from Goodison Park to Stamford Bridge and a return to his former club was the move he wanted.

 

The Spanish striker on the other hand was a shoe-in for a move to Old Trafford and it was merely transfer fees to be agreed. That was until the Red Devils got fed up with Florentino Perez and swooped for Lukaku instead.

Now Chelsea have taken the almost inevitable step of signing the Real Madrid forward with a reported €80 million fee agreed between the Premier League and La Liga champions.

 

Chelsea were linked with a move for the former Juventus striker last summer before Zinedine Zidane brought him back to the Bernabeu to become a member of his squad.

The 24 year old was actually the team’s second top scorer in the league, behind Cristiano Ronaldo obviously, with 15 strikes but he started only 14 games in the league and a further five in other competitions.

Diego Costa

Earlier this summer Conte told top scorer Diego Costa that he was no longer wanted by the Blues so an approach for a striker has been a priority for the Italian all season and having worked with Morata before it was an obvious move.

Now we can look forward to a season of Morata and Lukaku being compared with one another, their careers are now linked forever.

The transfer window is really hot now!

Swap Sanchez with Aguero- Paul Merson

By Toyin Akiode

Alexis Sanchez

Echoing the sentiments of teeming Arsenal fans, Paul Merson believes that Arsenal should swap Alexis Sanchez for Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.

The former Arsenal legend, who has always been vocal about issues regarding the team aired his views that the club is bigger any individual.

“I don’t think Arsenal can replace Sanchez, can they?” Merson told Goal. “He gets 30 of their goals, but you’ve got to move on.

“If someone doesn’t want to be at the club, Arsenal are a big club and you don’t want players who don’t want to be there. Arsenal are a big club, a very big club and you don’t want that.

“He’s a good player – if I were Arsenal I’d be ringing up Manchester City and saying, ‘Give us Aguero and you can have Sanchez.’

“If Alexis wants to go to Man City then I’d say I want Aguero. He’s better than Sanchez.”

Paul-Merson
Paul Merson

Alexis Sanchez was Arsenal’s best player last season but he has been reluctant in penning a new deal at the Emirates.

Many believed that the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette would aid in convincing the Chilean to extend his stay with the London club. However, things seem to be going the other way.

Two days ago, Sanchez declared that he wants to play Champions League; an opportunity that is not available with his current team.

With only a year left to run in his contract, Arsenal are at a risk of losing him for nothing at the end of next season. This, obviously, is contrary to all financial reasons.

The argument is that Wenger should sell and use the proceeds to purchase two good players to replace Sanchez.

Whether Arsenal desire to sell or not, the truth is that it is never prudent to keep an unwilling player in the team. It is far better to cut the loss and move on.

As they say; no one is indispensable. Surely, Wenger and Arsenal could find another player that would bridge the gap that Sanchez exit could cause. It must be so!
