Bastian Schweinsteiger Returns To Manchester United Training

Bastian Schweinsteiger has returned to first-team training with Manchester United, after months of exile from Jose Mourinho's squad.
The former Germany international had been forced to train on his own this season, with Mourinho making it clear that the 32-year-old was not part of his plans.
But Schweinsteiger was spotted back in training with his team-mates on Monday, just days after being left out of the club's squad photograph.

He was pictured smiling during the session with Wayne Rooney, who looked delighted to see his team-mate return to the fold, as well as coming under the watchful eye of Mourinho.
Phil Jones was also back in first-team training after returning for injury, as was the unfancied Henrikh Mkhitaryan, alongside a host of more regular stars.
Whether this will mean a return to the match-day squad for the World Cup winner or not is unknown, but it is a start for Schweinsteiger, who had also trained with the under-23 side this season.

Manchester United Players Don’t Agree With Jose Mourinho Over This – Report

Manchester United  players believe Wayne Rooney should be given the chance to assert his place back in the starting XI.
The club captain has found himself out of Jose Mourinho’s first-team in recent weeks after a dip in form.

The same has happened with England after Gareth Southgate dropped Wayne Rooney to the bench for their latest World Cup qualifiers.

Mourinho has deployed Rooney in midfield of late with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford leading the line.

But according to the Daily Mail, several United players want Rooney to play in the No.9 role and believe he deserves another opportunity to impress.

My Life In Manchester Is A Disaster

Jose Mourinho has claimed living in Manchester has been a “bit of a disaster” so far as he painted a frustrated picture of life in a goldfish bowl.
His wife Tami and children Matilde and Jose Jr – a goalkeeper at Fulham – have stayed in London at their stunning central London townhouse – and he says he does not like constant paparazzi attention.

The former Chelsea coach is facing huge pressure after United slumped to a 4-0 defeat over the weekend against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The huge loss extended United's poor run to one win in six Premier league matches.

I’m Done With Trump – Clinton

U.S. Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has said she no longer cares what her Republican rival Donald Trump might say and will focus on issues instead
“I debated him for four and a half hours,” she said, recalling their acrimonious exchanges. “I don’t even think about responding to him anymore.” She was speaking to reporters aboard her campaign plane.

Mr Trump used a rally in Gettysburg to promise curbs on lobbying and new trade and climate change negotiations. With just 16 days until the election, much of the recent focus has been on controversies linked to his campaign. On Saturday, he again promised to sue every woman who had accused him of sexual assault or inappropriate behaviour as soon as his presidential campaign was over. While the tycoon lags behind Mrs Clinton in opinion polls, he recently narrowed the gap to about four percentage points.

Marco Asensio of Real Madrid was named best emerging player for his display while on loan at Espanyol.

Fani-Kayode Slumped In EFCC Custody

A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, slumped in the custody of the Economic
and Financial Crimes Commission.

The Special Assistant to Fani-Kayode on Media, Jude Ndukwe, raised the alarm in a statement On Monday night. Ndukwe said Fani Kayode slumped in the custody of the EFCC on Saturday.

Operatives of the EFCC had last Friday re-arrested Fani-Kayode outside the premises of the Federal High Court on Oyinkan Abayomi Drive, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Fani-Kayode was picked up after attending his trial over an alleged fraud of N4.9bn before Justice Muslim Hassan.

He was arrested as soon as he stepped out of the courtroom after the judge had adjourned further proceedings in his trial till November 14 and 15, 2016.

Obanikoro’s Revelations: Should EFCC Quiz Jonathan?

Prof. Fidelis Oditah (A Senior Advocate of Nigeria and Queen’s Counsel)
Does he have immunity? Is he not a Nigerian? Everybody is equal before the law. He should be questioned. Many leaders in Africa have gone to jail for corruption. We should avail ourselves the opportunity to combat corruption by showing people they won’t get off scot-free when they leave office having plundered the state.

There is nothing political about it. If I steal money, won’t I be investigated? Won’t the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission invite me? Is that political? Why should politicians be provided with a life-long immunity from being probed? If he (Jonathan) is probed, some people will say the past president’s can of worm is opened. That is the problem we have in this country. We must make it clear to everyone that no one is above the law. At some point, you must be held accountable for your stewardship. I don’t think quizzing Jonathan has anything to do with politics. It is about cleaning the system and enforcing our laws.

We have outsourced our criminal prosecution to other countries to help us recover stolen funds. America is returning looted Abacha funds, Britain is holding Diezani (Alison-Madueke) and it has jailed ex-governor James Ibori. Who have we jailed? Is there any law that you shouldn’t be probed if you were a political office holder? In fact, that is even a good reason to probe you. So, if Jonathan is suspected to have plundered the assets put in his care as a trustee for the people of Nigeria, he should be probed. He must give an account of his stewardship. If I sent you on an errand and I gave you some money, you should come back and tell me how you spent the money. What is wrong in that?

I Gave Fayose, Omisore N2.5bn For Ekiti, Osun Elections – Obanikoro

I gave Fayose, Omisore N2.5bn for Ekiti, Osun elections – Obanikoro
Former minister of state for Defence, Sen. Musiliu Obanikoro, allegedly told Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that N1. 2 billion was transfered to Ekiti Governor Ayodele Fayose, in 2014, from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) for the governorship election.

Obanikoro, who is still in EFCC custody reportedly said the cash was wired into a company, Sylva Mcnamara’s bank account within seven months, in 2014.
A source within the commission said the ex- minister was confronted with water-tight evidence of movement of funds from the ONSA, allegedly using companies belonging to his children, Babajide and Gbolahan as fronts. Obanikoro, who reportedly opened up in EFCC custody, however, insisted he is not the owner of Sylva Mcnamara, the company which was used to transfer N4.7 billion in 2014.
The former minister also said N1.3 billion was given to Senator Iyiola Omisore, who was governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for Osun State election.

Jose Mourinho Blasts Antonio Conte For 'Humiliating' Celebrations During Manchester United's Defeat At Chelsea

Jose Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge began with hugs and ended in humiliation.

After enjoying an emotional embrace with his former Chelsea captain John Terry, Mourinho's Manchester United team were swamped by goals from Pedro, Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante.

He was then involved in an unedifying touchline spat with Antonio Conte, who had been urging Chelsea fans to recognise his team's dominant performance. 

Italian TV reported Mourinho angrily said to his rival at the final whistle: 'You don't celebrate like that at 4-0, you can do it at 1-0, otherwise it's humiliating for us.'

Mourinho accused Conte of disrespect in a heated touchline rant. And the bad blood from Manchester United's 4-0 loss spilled over into the tunnel after the final whistle as a member of Mourinho's staff snubbed a handshake from Conte.

CBN Orders Banks To Stop Dollar Loans

CBN Director, Banking Supervision, Mrs. Tokunbo Martins, said this at the CBN-Financial Institutions Training Centre (FITC) continuous education programme for Directors of Banks and Other Financial Institutions, held in Lagos.

She said the policy shift followed the continuous depreciation of the naira and subsequent rise in foreign currency exposures of banks in naira terms.

“Banks may, therefore, need to restrict extending foreign currency denominated loans to customers that do not earn foreign exchange,” she said.

Speaking on the theme: Current Regulatory Requirements and their Implications, Mrs Martins said the CBN introduced the flexible forex policy to address the challenges experienced in the forex market.

“The objective of the new regime is to enhance efficiency and facilitate a liquid and transparent Foreign Exchange Market. It is pertinent to note that, although the regime is flexible, CBN intervention in the inter-bank market is allowed, and can be direct or through dynamic secondary market mechanisms,” she said.

United boss Jose Mourinho will have his goalkeeper David De Gea to thank for the point.
The Spanish 'keeper made a pin-point save from Emre Can after the Germany playmaker tricked his way into some space in the box just before the hour mark, and then with 20 minutes remaining he pulled off a magnificent stop to parry Philippe Coutinho's stunning  long-ranger.

The first-half began the cagey narrative of the contest, both teams packing the midfield to stop the game from flowing in any way. Entertaining? No, not at all.

Premier League Managers Recreated In Paint As Military leaders

Italian artist Pupazzaro started painting as a hobby but now stars of football contact him for portraits - but why has he not bothered with Antonio Conte?
THEY spend their days leading their clubs in pursuit of trophies – but one artist has gone one step further and painted the Premier League‘s biggest managers as actual military generals.

Italian artist Pupazzaro draws footballers in army gear and what was initially a hobby has turned into a business, with players and managers even contacting him for a portrait.
Fellow Italian Claudio Ranieri, who won the title last year with Leicester City is immortalised in army uniform, as is Manchester United's Jose Mourinho and his fierce city rival Pep Guardiola of Manchester City.

North London rivals Arsene Wenger and Mauricio Pochettino are also drawn for when their two sides Arsenal and Spurs go into battle.

And completing the list is a smiling Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool complete with extravagant handlebar moustache.

When Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari was running as a candidate last year, he counted on his wife to do a lot of the work for him. Twenty-eight years his junior, Aisha Buhari spoke to women and young people at rallies around the country, promising that her husband would end the Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria’s north and bring back thousands of girls kidnapped by the group.

But on Friday, she voiced disappointment in her husband’s time in office, saying she will not support him if he runs for a second term — unless he makes major changes.

“The president does not know 45 out of 50 of the people he appointed and I don’t know them either, despite being his wife of 27 years,” she told the BBC on Friday. “Some people are sitting down in their homes folding their arms, only for them to be called to come and head an agency or a ministerial position.”

How BVN Exposed Corrupt Judges Arrested By DSS

Sources within the Department of State Security (DSS) have revealed that the implemented Bank Verification Number (BVN) was responsible for its operative to trace several millions to alleged corrupt judges who are currently in its custody.
Recall that seven judges- Justice Inyang Okoro and Sylvester Ngwuta of the Supreme Court; Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court, Abuja; Kabir Auta of the Kano High Court; Muazu Pindiga of Gombe High Court, Mohammed Tsamiya of the Court of Appeal in Ilorin, and the Chief Judge of Enugu State, I. A. Umezulike- have been arrested and currently in detention at the SSS office.
In a report by Newsmen, DSS access to the bank accounts of the detained judges and revealed that they had been taking bribes from many sources in the discharge of their duties but used the names and pictures of their wives, children and siblings to open such banks account.

“When we brought in most of the children, wives and relatives of the suspects based on the papers we got from the banks, they did not even have an idea that their names had been used by the judges to open such accounts.
“But you see under the Bank Verification Number, you must put in your passports, name, signature and others. So, for some of the judges, who used fake names and their wives names to open the accounts into which they paid in the proceeds of crime, they foolishly appended their signatures or used their pictures, something that gave them out.

Donald Trump And Hillary Clinton Singing 'Time Of My Life' (So Hilarious You Will Laugh It Out)

A video that shows Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton 'duetting' to a classic Dirty Dancing tune has had the internet in stitches.

The clip, taken from a live debate between the two presidential hopefuls this weekend, seems to show the pair belting out the 80s hit.

It even sort of manages to capture Trump looking lovingly at Clinton as he holds the microphone up to his mouth.

She then takes the female part of the duet, and the two candidates almost seem to be getting along

Bill Clinton can also be seen 'watching' the performance.

In reality, the debate was fraught with tension. Traditionally, presidential hopefuls shake hands before the start of a televised debate, but both Trump and Clinton took to the stage with just a mere nod.

Five Takeaways From The Clinton-Trump Debate

St. Louis (AFP) - Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump went toe to toe in their second presidential debate, clashing over crude remarks by the billionaire Republican -- who vowed that if elected he would jail his opponent over her email use as a secretary of state.

Here are five key highlights of the showdown:

Trump dredges up Bill Clinton

Donald Trump went there, big league.
After holding his tongue in the first debate, Trump assailed Clinton's husband Bill, reminding television viewers about a string of accusations of sexual misconduct, including one of rape, leveled against the former president decades ago.
Fighting the backlash against his 2005 hot mic remarks in which he was caught saying he can grope women because those with celebrity status can "do anything," Trump's point was clear: a certain Clinton has done more than just talk.

"Mine are words, his was action," he said, claiming that there has "never been anybody in the history of politics in this nation that's been so abusive to women."

Commuter Train Derails In Long Island


Dozens of people were injured Saturday when a commuter train hit a work train east of New York City and derailed, officials said.

Trump's Body Language During Debate Raises Social Media Eyebrows

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump paced, frowned and physically loomed at times over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton during Sunday night's town-hall debate, prompting bewilderment and mockery from some on social media.

The online reaction underscored the contentious tone of the encounter in St. Louis in which Trump and Clinton hurled insults at each other less than a month before the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election.

Twitter users seized on Trump's body language, with some remarking that he appeared to have "stalked" Clinton around the stage. The criticism came as the Republican faces a political storm after being caught on a leaked 2005 videotape making lewd and demeaning remarks about women.

'I Can't Believe I wasted So Many Years': Ex-girlfriend Of United's Jesse Lingard

'I can't believe I wasted so many years': Ex-girlfriend of Manchester United star Jesse Lingard hits out at being dumped just months after he hit the big time
She gave up her career, supported him while an academy nobody and followed him round the country on various loan spells, but the ex-girlfriend of Manchester United's Jesse Lingard has let rip after being kicked into touch.
Emma Hyde was sidelined by the 23-year-old earlier this year during his breakthrough season at Old Trafford, which culminated in scoring the winning goal in the FA Cup Final.

The couple had been together since 2011 after he spotted her in a Manchester nightclub, while he was still an academy trainee making next-to-nothing.
At one point Lingard looked unlikely to make the grade at his boyhood club, having been farmed out on loan to Championship clubs such as Brighton, Birmingham and Derby.
