POGBA: IT’S NOT ME TALKING
Paul Pogba has admitted there will “always be talk” about his future at but claims it is not him doing the talking.
When Asked if he was “fed up” with all the speculation in England about his relationship with United manager Jose Mourinho, the 25-year-old midfielder said: “It’s not me who’s talking.
“I’m trying to work on myself physically. I got back late [from the World Cup], so I’m trying to perform as well as possible.
I’m just trying to do my job and for the rest there’ll always be talk.”
THE GOLDEN EAGLETS BACK ON TRACK.
Nigeria has got her campaign back on track in the U17 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers with a 5-1 win over Cote d’Ivoire on Thursday.
The Golden Eaglets smashed the Baby Elephants in a largely one sided cracker in Niamey to temporarily shoot to the top of the Group B with three points from two games.
Manu Garba’s who was the king of great soccer artistry and electrifying pace at the game displayed it against Ivorians who were clueless in Niamey.
The result is a morale booster to the five-time World Champions who surprisingly lost 3-2 to Burkina Faso in the group opener on Monday.
A new format approved for the competition at the CAF Extra-Ordinary General Assembly which took place in Rabat 13 months ago means countries in each regional bloc gather in one country within the bloc to play a qualifying tournament, as against the old format of home-and-away qualifying series.
Only the winning team from each of the blocs (apart from the bloc of the defending champions that will produce two teams) will qualify for the final tournament, slated for Tanzania next year.
