  Mourinho Finally Breaks Silence On Replacing Zidane At Real Madrid

Mourinho Finally Breaks Silence On Replacing Zidane At Real Madrid



Jose Mourinho has dismissed speculations claiming he could replace Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid manager.

Madrid have drawn two of their opening four LaLiga matches this season and were crushed 3-0 by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Not only did Zidane’s men perform badly against PSG, they failed to record a shot on target.

However, former Madrid boss, Mourinho, does not believe the situation is as bad as it seems, with Los Blancos sitting third, just two points off early leaders Sevilla.

“They’re third or fourth, no? Close to being first.

“It’s not bad. If you look at it pragmatically, if you focus on the table, they’re right there. Now, they play Sevilla and if they win, they go ahead of them. Barcelona are behind them and Atletico are a point ahead,” Mourinho told Deportes Cuatro.

The Portuguese has further rubbished reports he is being lined up to replace Zidane as head coach, insisting he hopes the Frenchman can go on to have a successful season in the Spanish capital.

“There are two types of rumours. One, when one speaks about Zidane, who is one of ours and it hurts us when our teams aren’t going well. You have to live with it.

“Zidane is in football all his life and he knows it. The other type of rumour is to put my name in there, and I don’t like that. There are problems in many places, but another thing is respect.

“I wouldn’t like to return because they have a manager and I can’t coach a team who have a manager. You can speak with respect about the club but also about the manager who isn’t just anyone. I am out of it. I’m not just blowing smoke. I would like that things turn out well and everything gets fixed.

“Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico, Manchester United and Chelsea – when you have massive expectations, it’s difficult and tough. And for this, they say there are good players and managers who aren’t giving everything, because it takes more than just talent, you also have to have a certain special personality,” he added.

This Is My Life In A Single Post – Yvonne Jegede Reacts To Alibaba’s Post On The Challenges High Achieving Women Face In Marriages

This is my life in a single post- Yvonne Jegede reacts to Alibaba
Yvonne Jegede, Toke Makinwa and many other women and men seem to agree with Alibaba's post about how high achieving women are being frustrated in relationships and marriages.
Alibaba in his post, pointed out that most women in this generation are becoming very ambitious and instead of it motivating the men, they have become very insecure.
Yvonne Jegede in her reaction to his post, stated that it is the story of her life. Toke on the other hand, stated that 'these are the issues in most relationships and marriages.'
See their comments below

This is my life in a single post- Yvonne Jegede reacts to Alibaba

And when the young ladies decide to pocket the achievements and advantages they have, so they can submit to a man in that their age bracket, many of these men have been sooo beaten by the tides of life, that they are too busy fighting the wife they should work with.
_
Any attempt by the wife to suggest to him to get up and do something to succeed, is treated as disrespect, nagging, pressure and sometimes stress.
_
One guy was so broken by the frustration of not having made it since he graduated in 2010, and still without a job, that he wanted his Assistant Manager fiance, to move to his father's house in Magodo, from the Oniru 2 bedroom, she presently occupied.
_
Why don't you move in with her and make your great moves from there? "Never. I can't marry and move into my wife's house." That is from a 32 year old guy, who still lives in his parents house.
_
Don't get me wrong ooo. The economy is messed up. Our politicians have not done much to drag us out of the down turn. After elections, they start working toward the next election.
_
The problem has left many young men, not ready to be married. They are not prepared or do not have what it takes to be a man that can take a woman as wife. And not just as wife, to even be able to provide as the head of the house.
_
So the few men who are loaded and ready, are few and in very high demand. Many ladies can hurt any other lady who tries to take any rare find, of such a man. Especially if he has a house, good job, good car, looks good, dresses well and has very few defects.
_
So what's the issue? The issue now, is that, even when these kind of young men, meet young ladies, who (by any reason) had a headstart, the young men are too faaaaaar behind, ill equipped and unprepared in the sourcing for opportunities and management of the relationship.
_
They are now slaves to ego, frustration, pride, peer pressure, poverty of mind and sometimes total disillusionment.
_
Look around. Don't say I told you. Everywhere. There are many, who don't know what to do, how to do it, where to do it, when to do it... Even with a Masters Degree in Bus Admin, LL

I have presented Biafra?s case and Sowore?s detention to the United Nations -?Nnamdi Kanu
Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said Biafra’s case can no longer be ignored by Nigeria, as he had lodged it with various arms of the United Nations following his meeting with UN officials in Geneva on Tuesday, September 17th.
The group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, in a statement said Kanu, with his deputy, Mazi Uche Mefor and Head of Directorate of State, Mazi Chika Edoziem held a series of meetings with various United Nations officials where he presented Biafra’s plight to the UN officials.
According to him, Kanu’s emergence from the meeting was met with chants of eulogy by a congregation of Biafrans. Emma Powerful said Kanu demanded urgent action against the numerous rights abuses inflicted daily upon Biafrans and the need to support the undeniable right of Biafrans to self-determination as enshrined in law, statute and various UN conventions.
“Every issue concerning our people is now before the various arms and agencies of the United Nations. Our case will no longer be ignored.
The case of RUGA settlement was also raised and the august body was left in doubt that Biafrans will never allow Fulani terror settlements in Biafraland.
“Incessant killing of Biafrans in their own land by terrorist Fulani herdsmen, extortion and killing of Biafran motorcyclists and commercial drivers by Nigerian army and police over refusal to give #50 bribery.”
Powerful also stated that Kanu raised the continued detention of Omoleye Sowore, the relentless persecution of the members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria led by Sheikh El-Zakzaky, among other issues.
