Florentino Pérez: "Cristiano Ronaldo won't return to Real Madrid"

  Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid, was on Spanish TV show El Chiringuito to speak for the first time after the announcement of a breakaway European Super League. The new chairman of the Super League also discussed the current ongoing at Real Madrid. On signing Kylian Mbappé : We are here to talk about the Super League. In eight years' time, I'll be talking about something else. Look, I'm wearing a mask and I hear "sign Mbappé". What do I say? Don't worry... The truth is that he is a very good player. Madrid need a change. I'm not talking about Mbappé. But we have won many things, many things have happened. I have not spoken to him... At least today. It was a joke. I can assure you that I haven't spoken to him for years. I only know what I read in the newspapers. Signings at Real Madrid: I'm doing everything I can so that Madrid doesn't lose its rightful place. The madridistas know that. But the truth is that we had to bring in €9

National Assembly Ready To Pass N56,000 Minimum Wage Bill



All Progressives Congress chieftain, Saraki has expressed optimism that the Senate will pass the Minimum Wage Bill as pushed by the workers.

The President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki has said that the National Assembly was ready to consider and pass a new Minimum Wage Bill whenever it was presented by the executive.

Note that the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, is demanding an upward push from 18,000 to 56,000 as minimum wage.

Saraki, who made this known to newsmen in Abuja, said that the senate was aware of the need to review the current minimum wage.

He said that all the indices upon which the last minimum wage of N18, 000 was approved had changed and that there was, therefore, no need leaving the wage unchanged.

He acknowledged that the sufferings of Nigerians were glaring, and said that the national assembly was only waiting for the executive to present a bill for a wage review.

“We are in support; we are waiting for the executive. We have told them to go ahead with the idea.

“I have said it myself and the Speaker of House of Representatives said it the last time that we are fully in support. We are waiting for the executive to make a move on it.

“We are prodding the executive to do that; we have done that many times and we are still doing that.

 “It is justifiable to have a new minimum wage. How will it not be if you look at the challenges the people are going through. “More so, all the indices have changed since then, and should that be the only index that should stay the same? It is not possible,” he said.

On the inability of some state governments to pay the current minimum wage, Saraki expressed optimism that all state governors were responsible and would key into a new wage when approved.

“I am not in the state but I don’t think that any chief executive or any governor will be irresponsible not to want to provide succour for his people. “But, we have to understand that maybe they have challenges of affordability,” he said.

On the recent request for the report of the 2014 National Conference to be sent to the senate, he said although the move had been lauded, it should not be assumed that all Nigerians supported it.

The president of the senate said that the upper chamber had learned to approach sensitive issues at a slow pace so that all Nigerians could understand and be cara

UCL Early Team News: Lucas Vazquez,Toni Kroos Others Absent for Liverpool clash

  Real Madrid are facing the trip to Liverpool without three important starters, Toni Kroos, Fede Valverde and Lucas Vazquez. Lucas had to be replaced before half time during the Clásico after he took a serious knock to his left knee, while both Kroos and Fede Valverde were also suffering from discomfort when they came off the field in the second half. Los Blancos have recorded important victories against Liverpool and Barcelona during a tough week that has taken its toll physically. “We are at the limit, I don't know how we are going to end up,” warned Zinedine Zidane after the Clásico. Following tests carried out by Madrid's medical team on Sunday, it was confirmed that Lucas has suffered a cruciate ligament sprain in his left knee. This type of injury usually requires around six weeks of recovery, meaning the Spanish midfielder will likely miss the rest of the season. Lucas's injury is fortunately not serious enough to require an operation. But since it is a spra
