Nigeria's Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo while speaking about the need for more factual reporting at a dinner organised by the state house communications team for head of media practitioners in Abuja shared a video catalogue of memes about him and President Buhari.


“I see quite a few memes that “roast” me on social media and to be honest, I find some of them creative and funny. For example, it appears every photograph of me talking to the President must be characterized as though I am saying something mischievous” he wrote.

The President of South-Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa was embarrassed by Zimbabweans on Saturday afternoon as he addressed mourners at Robert Mugabe’s state funeral in the capital, Harare.

Ramaphosa was booed by the crowd over Xenophobic attacks on foreigners in his country. The funeral service, which is taking place at the National Sports Stadium, has seen heads of state and former presidents joining Zimbabweans in paying tribute to the former President.

In recent weeks, foreign nationals were attacked in South Africa during a spate of violent activity that led to shops being looted and property vandalized. Twelve people have died, many have been arrested and hundreds of immigrants. including Nigerians and Zimbabweans, have left the country.

When he was finally allowed to speak, Ramaphosa apologised for the violence.

He said, "South Africans are not xenophobic. He says foreign nationals are welcomed in SA."

"This we do to push for unity that Mugabe stood for".

Mathias Pogba has revealed that a World Cup winner at Old Trafford has held discussions with the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Zlatan Ibrahimovic


Barcelona are among those said to have expressed interest in Paul Pogba and the Manchester United midfielder’s brother, Mathias, claims the World Cup winner has spoken with Lionel Messi.

Another window of speculation surrounding a France international has just closed and the deadline has passed with Pogba still on the books at Old Trafford.

Questions continue to be asked, though, as to how long that will remain the case, with the 26-year-old having already conceded that he is open to a new challenge.

Further interest is expected to be shown in his services when future markets swing open, with Spain considered to be his most likely destination, and discussions have already been held with some star turns plying their trade in La Liga.


Among those Pogba has been in contact with are a five-time Ballon d’Or winner and fellow countryman at Camp Nou.

Mathias Pogba told El Chiringuito TV when shown a headline from England in which Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has admitted to being a big fan of his brother: “I know he’s spoken with a few players, but not Ramos.

“Who? Oh, Messi. Sometimes, not always. Zlatan [Ibrahimovic]. Griezmann, because of the national team.”

Paul Pogba Man Utd Real Madrid

It comes as no surprise to find that Pogba has spoken with Griezmann, or former United team-mate and close friend Ibrahimovic.

It could be that Barca stars past and present are sounding him out for a switch, but there are also familiar faces to be found at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Mathias added: “I don’t know about anyone from Real Madrid. Oh, [Raphael] Varane, yes, and yes, with [Zinedine] Zidane, yes.”

France icon Zidane has stated in the past that he would welcome the opportunity to work with Pogba.

It could be that their paths cross at some stage, with another of the midfielder’s siblings, Florentin, having revealed that Barca and Real are the only sides that could tempt a global superstar away from Manchester.


He told AS back in January: “We like tiki-taka. Whenever I can, I watch their (Barcelona) games or go to the Camp Nou.

“When my brother leaves Manchester United, there are only three clubs he can go to improve: [Manchester] City, Real Madrid or Barca. He's not going to go to City, so he'll come to Spain: to Barca or Madrid.”

Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona may yet seal a deal for Neymar as negotiations are not over, according to the forward's father and agent.


Neymar was strongly linked with a return to Camp Nou before the European transfer window closed this month in what became a summer-long transfer saga.


The Brazil superstar was said to be keen to go back to Barca two years after controversially leaving for a world-record €222million (£200m/$249m).

PSG sporting director Leonardo confirmed Neymar wanted to leave the club and was available for transfer if the right offer was made.

But Barca and PSG were unable to come to an agreement, with La Liga giants Real Madrid also reportedly seeing offers rejected.

Neymar, who has three years remaining on his PSG contract, has yet to play for the Ligue 1 champions this term.

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel said he would not select the 27-year-old until his future was resolved.

The closing of the transfer window without a deal appeared to signal an end to the transfer saga, with Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu confirming the La Liga champions would not be making a renewed bid in the January transfer window.

Neymar Sr, though, has cast fresh doubt on his son's long-term future in the French capital.

"The negotiations between clubs are not over," he said in an appearance at Edinburgh Sports Conference.

"A Brazilian just wants to be where he is happy and he was very happy at Barcelona. When his friends asked him if he want to go back, it upset him."

Barca reportedly made cash-plus-players bids to PSG in a bid to force a move through, with Ousmane Dembele and Ivan Rakitic among those said to have been offered.

Goal reported last month that Rakitic was ready to make the move to France, but Dembele was reluctant to quit Barca two years after his move from Borussia Dortmund.

"As an agent, you feel weak when there is no structure that allows you to come and go," added Neymar's father.

"There was no release clause in his contract and this makes things very difficult.


"We fought to find an agreement. We gave the best of ourselves for him."

Michael Zorc insists that BVB are determined to keep hold of a prized asset, who has supposedly already said no to a switch to Old Trafford




Jadon Sancho had no intention of joining Manchester United during the summer, according to Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc.

The 19-year-old burst onto the scene at Westfalenstadion last season, having arrived in Germany from Manchester City for a £9 million ($11m) fee in August 2017.

Sancho contributed 12 goals and 14 assists in 34 Bundesliga appearances in the 2018-19 campaign, helping Dortmund fight Bayern Munich for the title.

Dortmund chief Zorc claims the club were unwilling to sell Sancho at any price, but the England international also had no desire to return to Manchester in any case.

"A hot topic right now is Sancho and Manchester United," Zorc said in the Amazon Prime documentary 'Inside Borussia Dortmund' .

"Both his discussions with the club and mine with the consultants.

"A meeting did take place. Manchester United invited the consultant.

"But, according to what I know, the consultant told the club that no matter how much money they offer, we won’t let him go this summer.

"But the player also has no intention of taking that step this summer."

Sancho has continued his meteoric rise to prominence at the start of the new season, netting two goals in three appearances for Dortmund while also laying on three assists.



The former City starlet was included in Gareth Southgate's latest England squad and featured in a 4-0 win Euro 2020 qualifying win over Bulgaria on Saturday, before playing a starring role against Kosovo.

Sancho scored twice in a 5-3 victory for the Three Lions on Tuesday night , his first goals at international level, having made his debut last October.

The England attacker will now return to Dortmund to prepare for a Bundesliga clash against Bayer Leverkusen this weekend, before a Champions League opener against Barcelona three days later.
The former Premier League goalkeeper says that the Spain international needs to be careful about losing a big contract offer from his club





Mark Schwarzer has warned David de Gea that Manchester United may choose to let him go if they decide his value is less than what he's asking for in the ongoing contract negotiations.

There has long been speculation that the Spaniard could leave Old Trafford, with the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain having been linked.

The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper has made a number of uncharacteristic errors over the last 12 months, including in the 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace earlier this season that saw Patrick van Aanholt beat him at his near post.

"They will have to come to a decision at some point on whether his value is the same as what he is asking for," he told Goal. "There’s speculation about him and then there's the fact that he may still choose to leave.

"Ultimately there comes the point where your history and your past performances only get you so far. It is about now. If you look at his last six months, his average performances haven’t been anywhere near what they have been in the past.

"If you break it down, a lot of goals have come from direct mistakes from De Gea. Probably more than in the entire six or seven-year period before. There is always a balancing act as a player. What’s your current value? Your recent performances come into that.

"Can he get to the level he was at before? Part of that is being consistent. Consistency is not a word I would associate with David de Gea over the last six months. If not more."

If United do lose De Gea, they could look to promote Dean Henderson, the England Under-21 goalkeeper on loan at Sheffield United, but Schwarzer believes he needs to prove himself in the Premier League first.

"United have a very good goalkeeper [in De Gea]. He has been pretty consistent for most of his time at the club. The first 18 months were mixed, then he was exceptional and in the last 12 months he has dropped off a bit. Over a long period he has been very good for them," he added.

Dean Henderson England Romania

"I have seen Dean Henderson play a couple of times, not a lot but a couple of times. He has got a long way to go. He has only had three games in the Premier League. It is a position that De Gea has played in for nearly 10 years. I don’t think it's a genuine comparison at this stage.

"Let’s see how well Henderson does and evolves throughout the season. Then you can maybe have a better idea if he can play for a club like Manchester United. Playing for Sheffield United in the Championship, no disrespect, is very difficult from playing for Man Utd in the Premier League."

Schwarzer also commented on the performances of Brazilian goalkeeping duo Alisson and Ederson, suggesting that the Liverpool man has made the biggest impact in England with his displays for Jurgen Klopp's side.

"A lot of teams have moved towards goalkeepers that can play like outfield players," Schwarzer said. "Alisson and Ederson have pushed that progression along quickly. Both of them are extremely good with their feet.

"If you pick the one who has made the biggest impact? I would say Alisson has really helped Liverpool. Ederson has been really good but I think Alisson was the missing link in the jigsaw for Klopp. Liverpool play out from the back more and his consistency helps win them games.

"De Gea doesn’t start the play. I think he is good with his feet but we don’t see him very often play with his feet, not as much as Ederson or Alisson."
