Pinnick: NFF Won’t Beg Saka to Play for Nigeria

first_imgHis stock has continued to rise following his eye-catching performances and he recently extended his contract to ward off other clubs who are interested in signing him.The winger was born in England to Nigerian parents and has represented the European country at U16, U17, U18 and U19 levels but since he has not yet featured for the Three Lions, he is still eligible to switch his allegiance to the West Africans.Pinnick has failed in the past to persuade Chelsea duo of Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham to play for the Super Eagles.The NFF boss made a number of trips to England to convince the players and despite his closeness to Abraham’s father, the striker went to play for the Three Lions.Pinnick, however, has stated the federation will not plead with any player to don the Nigerian jersey and explained in the case of Saka, there are a number of quality players doing well for the Super Eagles in his position, although if he desires to play for the country he would be given an opportunity.“Saka is an excellent prospect but we have other players in his position who are playing so well,” Pinnick said in an Instagram Live chat.“We have talents everywhere so we won’t beg people to play for Nigeria. It is about ardour and fervour, If it’s their desire and they merit it, they’ll be given a chance to represent Nigeria.”Nigeria are three-time African champions, after claiming the Africa Cup of Nations in 1980, 1994 and 2013.The Super Eagles finished third in the 2019 edition of the competition in Egypt behind Senegal and Algeria who claimed the diadem.The Eagles are currently top of Group L of the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with six points after victories over the Republic of Benin and Lesotho.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram BOREHAMWOOD, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 21: Bukayo Saka scores Arsenal’s 1st goal under pressure from Adam Lewis of Liverpool during the match between Arsenal U23 and Liverpool U23 at Meadow Park on September 21, 2018 in Borehamwood, England.

Bankrupt World Cup hero Andreas Brehme offered job cleaning toilets

first_imgOut of soccer for nearly a decade and in debt to the tune of a reported 200,000 euros ($254,000 dollars), Brehme has fallen on hard times since scoring the World Cup-winning goal for West Germany in 1990.Former German World Cup hero Andreas Brehme’s career is in the toilet, so he might as well clean one.Out of soccer for nearly a decade and in debt to the tune of a reported 200,000 euros ($254,000 dollars), Brehme has been offered a job cleaning toilets by Oliver Straube, who played under Brehme at SpVgg Unterhaching and currently owns a bathroom maintenance company.”We are ready to take Andreas,” Straube told German newspaper Deutsche Welle.”He will learn that what really counts is proper work and real life. It would help him improve his image. To me, that’s help.”It’s a stunning fall from grace for Brehme, who scored the World Cup-winning goal for West Germany in the 1990 final against Argentina and played left back for top-level teams like Bayern Munich and Inter Milan before transitioning to a coaching career.But he may be spared having to add toilet cleaner to his resume thanks to German legend Franz Beckhenbauer, who called on the proud soccer nation to rally behind its fallen hero. “We have a responsibility to help Andreas Berhme. He gave a lot to German soccer, he gave us a [World Cup] title. Now it’s time for German soccer to do something for him.”Berhme’s financial troubles are the rule rather than the exception according to Germany’s players’ union, which released a report claiming that three out of four former players are unable to earn a living outside of soccer once their careers on the pitch end.last_img read more

Quebec ABI smelter workers think they will be locked out for a

first_imgMONTREAL – Workers at the ABI aluminum smelter in Becancour, Que. said Friday they expected to be locked out of work for a long time.The United Steelworkers Local 9700 said the facility’s 1,030 employees were suddenly locked out at 3 a.m. Thursday, less than 24 hours after they voted against the company’s latest contract offer by more than 80 per cent.Union leaders said they think the company’s owners are looking to increase the price of aluminum.Workers picketed outside the Becancour smelter Friday afternoon.Alain Croteau, head of the Quebec section of the United Steelworkers, said the facility’s owners have a “hidden agenda.”“We think that financial interests are behind (the lockout),” he said. “When a big smelter such as Alcoa here in Becancour doesn’t produce, it takes aluminum off the market and drives up prices.”The ABI smelter, a major private employer in the region, is 75 per cent owned by Alcoa and 25 per cent by Rio Tinto Alcan.“We think the lockout will last two or three months, minimum,” Croteau said. “It could go to six, seven, eight months, maybe more, we don’t know. It’s sad for the population. It’s sad for the families and the workers here.”Local union president Clement Masse agrees his members will be out of work for a while.“Just stopping the tanks and re-started them, we’re talking about many millions of dollars,” he said. “If the employer took the decision to close two series of tanks, it’s because they don’t think they are going to settle this next week.”The union says the key issue is a company plan to introduce a new member-funded pension plan instead of a defined benefit plan.ABI said it will use management to continue one production line out of three for the duration of the lockout.last_img read more
