Nigerian international footballer, Ahmed Musa, paid a visit to Tudun Maliki Deaf and Dumb School, Taurey, Goron Dutse Prison Yard, Remand Home For Children and Kurmawa Prison, where he freed more than 40 prisoners comprising males, females and children and donated more than 3,000 bags of rice and millions of Naira as part of his charity work for the fasting month of Ramadan.

He has also joined the Super Eagles World Cup squad and he might feature for the national team against DR Congo in a send forth game.
The 25-year-old also scored one Europa League in six appearances as they were ousted by Arsenal in the quarter finals stage of the championship. The CSKA Moscow striker took to his Instagram page to send holy greetings saying ‘Ramadan Kareem’ with a picture of a bag of rice that has his picture imposed on it along with a ‘Not For Sale’ sign.
The former Leicester City striker is expected to make Gernot Rohr’s final 23-man list to the World Cup in Russia.
Martial Set for New Contract Talks with Man United
Manchester United striker, Anthony Martial has reportedly opened talks with the club over a contract extension despite being out of favour.
The 22-year-old has endured a tough year since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez at Old Trafford in the January transfer window. The Frenchman has performed well when given the chance to play in a united shirt, scoring 11 times and providing nine assists. Jose Mourinho led the side to finish in second position in the Premier League, their highest position since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club.
However, United has ended the year with no silverware, losing to Sevilla in the Champions League’s last 16 and falling short to Chelsea in the FA Cup.
Earlier in the season, United suffered an embarrassing defeat after crashing out of the Carabao Cup to Bristol City, and the Portuguese manager has turned down the former Monaco ace in most part of the season.
In the recent loss to Brighton in the Premier League where United succumbed to a shock loss, Mourinho was quick to blame his players.
“It was not good enough,” said Mourinho. “The players who replaced others did not perform at a good level and, when individuals do that, it is difficult for the team to play well.”
And now, according to the Sun, Martial is prepared to make a U-turn over his summer plans amid transfer speculation. The France international was expected to pack and leave Manchester but the youngster is settled in the city. But details of the deal are yet to be given and the Red Devils expect an uphill struggle to convince the youngster to stay at the club.
Phil Jones brought down Eden Hazard in the box to hand the Blues a penalty as the Belgian stepped up to convert the resulting spot kick. United came close on a number of occasions but were denied by Thibaut Courtois, who was brilliant on the night for Antonio Conte’s side.
