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

Stop Playing Politics With Buhari's Health, Gbenga Daniel Tells Fayose

A former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, on Sunday cautioned the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, to desist from playing politics with the health of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Mr. Daniel cautioned the controversial governor while featuring as a guest of Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria, FIBAN, at an interactive session held in Abeokuta.

He said there was nothing wrong for a formidable opposition to checkmate excesses of government which Mr. Fayose was known to be doing; but faulted his manner of playing politics with the health of the ailing president.

“It is good to have opposition for good democracy to thrive,” he said. “Democracy without a viable opposition is dictatorship.”

“It (viable opposition) will checkmate excesses of government in power, which Fayose is doing; but it is not good playing politics ‎with president’s health,” Mr. Daniel said.

The former governor, a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, explained that there is no human being who is immune to sickness; stressing that rather than turning the health of the president to an issue, Nigerians should pray for his recovery.

“He is our president, and I am one of those who want him to recover with good health, and there is no reason why we should toy with his health. I want his recovery and that is my prayers,” Mr. Daniel said.

Mr. Buhari has been in London for medical treatment of an undisclosed ailment for over 90 days and Mr. Fayose has repeatedly called for the president’s resignation claiming he can no longer continue in office.

Speaking on the PDP’s woeful defeat in 2015, Mr. Daniel said propaganda by the opposition was the major cause.

“We allowed the propaganda of opposition to defeat the sitting government, whereas machinery of government is expected to be up and doing,” he said.

Mr. Daniel, however, expressed optimism that the opposition party would bounce back especially after the Supreme Court resolved the leadership crisis.

“Now people who called for change are now calling for change the change. It is now a clear fact that Nigerians at all levels are fed up with APC government.

“It is now time for comparative analysis,” he statedj

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
