Manchester United Approach Mauricio Pochettino As Next Manager

Published

on

Manchester United have approached Mauricio Pochettino with a view to him replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club’s next manager.

The MEN understands United have made contact with Pochettino’s representatives amid the team’s dismal form under Solskjaer. The MEN reported last December Pochettino wants to take over as United manager and his stance on the role is not believed to have changed.

Insiders say the United hierarchy were privately backing Solskjaer prior to Wednesday night’s shambolic Champions League defeat by Istanbul Basaksehir and are reluctant to part company with the Norwegian so early in the season. But if United lose at Everton on Saturday they could end the weekend 17th in the Premier League table.

United have lost three of their six league games already this term and have not lost four of their first seven in a league campaign since 1989-90. The trip to Everton is United’s last game for two weeks due to the November internationals; a period that has become synonymous with top-flight sackings.

Solskjaer was asked whether he feared for his job after the 2-1 reverse in Istanbul and replied: “I decline to comment on such a thing. Of course, it’s early on and opinions are out there all the time. You’ve got to stay strong.

“I’m employed by the club to do a job and I do that to the best of my ability with my staff.”

Pochettino declared his intention to return to a managerial role during an appearance on Monday Night Football this week. “I am always ready to go again and be involved in the game,” Pochettino said. “It’s not stress when you are working, it’s not stress going into the training round to prepare the match and to compete.

“I hope to go back soon so we can start again to work. I am looking forward to being back in the game. I love this game but it’s difficult, we are inside and working on doing things. That’s the reality.”

The popular man of God said; “A wise husband who is cheating on the wife must be smart enough for her not to find out. When he reaches home, he puts his phone on switch off.

Further in his speech, he revealed it’s necessary for a married man to properly manage the affairs of his home irrespective of their extramarital affairs because it saves the marriage.

“A wise husband does not give blood pressure to his wife for her to die. A wise man must be smart enough not to call another lady in front of his wife and say ‘hello darling’”.

FIFA Ban CAF President Ahmad Ahmad For Five Years Over Corruption

Published

on

Ahmad Ahmad, the embattled president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has been banned for five years over financial misconduct.

The ban was announced during his campaign to be re-elected for four more years as the head of African soccer.

The FIFA ethics committee found “Ahmad had breached his duty of loyalty, offered gifts and other benefits, mismanaged funds and abused his position as the CAF President.”

Ahmad, a former government official in Madagascar, was also fined 200,000 Swiss francs ($220,000).

His first four-year term was rocked with allegations of financial wrongdoing and misconduct at the Confederation of African Football headquarters in Cairo.

The 60-year-old was detained by French authorities in Paris on the eve of the Women’s World Cup for questioning about a CAF equipment deal with a company that appeared to have little connection with soccer.

“The investigation into Mr. Ahmad’s conduct in his position as CAF President during the period from 2017 to 2019 concerned various CAF-related governance issues, including the organization and financing of an Umrah pilgrimage to Mecca, his involvement in CAF’s dealings with the sports equipment company Tactical Steel and other activities,” FIFA said in a statement.

An audit of CAF finances pointed to irregularities under Ahmad’s leadership. The report was ordered by FIFA while it effectively took over running the organization for six months.

CAF appeared to pay about $100,000 for 18 people, including Ahmad and the heads of some of the continent’s 54 national member federations, to travel on the pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.

The CAF election is scheduled for March 12 in Rabat, Morocco.
