Arsenal Have Paid Mesut Ozil £8,000 A Minute For Not Playing This Season

Arteta no doubt wishes he could do something similar with Mesut Ozil. The German didn't even make Arsenal's 20-man squad at the Etihad Stadium with the Gunners manager answering 'tactical reasons' when pressed for an explanation. Not many words but it spoke volumes for the absurd situation Arsenal find themselves in with a player who costs them a cool £350,000 each and every week yet doesn't even make the squad for one of the biggest games of the season. With the enforced three-month break promising to throw an element of chaos into the Premier League season, Arsenal might have sniffed an opportunity to inflict a rare defeat on City. And so, logically, you'd want your top earner and by extension one of your best players, to at least be there on the night. But no - Ozil wasn'...

Chelsea remain ahead of Arsenal in Coutinho loan battle

Chelsea remain favourites to land Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho, despite new attempts from Arsenal. The Daily Express says Chelsea have emerged as favourites to land Brazilian playmaker Coutinho after Bayern Munich opted not to exercise an option to buy. The former Liverpool man has spent the second half of this season on loan at the German giants, but they aren't interested in meeting the £110million asking price. Barca are willing to take a massive hit on the £105m they paid upfront for the 27-year-old and could accept as little as £80m. But the coronavirus crisis means that few clubs will be willing to invest such large sums in players after being starved of income for almost three months. Frank Lampard is in the market for a big-name signing and Coutinho is a pl...

Bonang Matheba Tax Fraud Case Struck Off The Roll, Admission Of Guilt Fine Paid

The tax fraud case against Bonang Matheba has on Tuesday morning been struck off the roll at the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crimes Court, after she paid an admission of guilt fine of R30,000. Bonang had been charged for not paying personal tax from 2008 - 2017 and company tax from 2014 - 2017.

Ajimobi ‘Was Paid’ $10million To Drop Tegbe For Bayo Adelabu – Sahara Reporters

What really happened was that Ajimobi was supposed to settle for Tegbe. Tegbe has Itsekiri blood; he is from Delta State but he was born and bred in Oyo town,” said a Government House source. “Shortly before the primary, the likes of Otudeko, Onasanya and co mounted pressure on Ajimobi to drop Tegbe for Adelabu. Ajimobi was given $10million; that is N3.57billion. Yes. Yes, yes, yes. It is an open secret in the camp of the decision-makers of Oyo politics.” The last-minute decision of Abiola Ajimobi, Governor of Oyo State, to back Bayo Adelabu rather than Joseph Tegbe for the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not without money changing hands, SaharaReporters has been told. Months before the primary election, Ajimobi egged on anyone who indicated interes...
