Pogba Compares Cavani to Martial, Rashford, Greenwood

Manchester United star, Paul Pogba, has compared Edinson Cavani to Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood following the Red Devils’ Premier League 2-1 victory over Fulham on Wednesday night. Pogba believes Martial, Rashford and Greenwood don’t have the same quality as Cavani after the Uruguay striker scored in Man United’s win against Fulham at Craven Cottage. Cavani capitalised on an error from Alphonse Areola to equalize, before Pogba grabbed all three points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side with a brilliant left-foot finish from outside the box. “Everybody knows that Edi [Cavani] is a top-class striker and there are a few strikers like this in the world, and we had the chance to have one,” Pogba told MUTV after the game. “We know the hardest goals are those go...

‘They never use skin colour to discredit men when comparing them’ – Pearl Thusi

Queen Sono star Pearl Thusi has hit back at women being pitted against each other due to their skin colour. Though Pearl isn't new to being vocal in the colourism debate, this week the star seems to have finally shared an opinion that doesn't have her catching heat. It all started after a user in a now-deleted tweet asked the internet to choose their favourite actress, a list which included Emmy-nominated star Thuso Mbedu. However, Twitter didn't take too kindly to the list of comparisons. Many criticised the list for pitting women against each other and colourism, with Thuso trending on Twitter because of her defenders. Pearl weighed in on the matter. Taking to her TL, the media personality hit back at the list, saying that men aren't put under the scrutiny as women are wh...

Mauricio Pochettino Wants To Make Manchester City Star His First PSG Signing

  Mauricio Pochettino reportedly wants to make a Manchester City superstar his first major signing as Paris Saint-Germain manager. City's record all-time goalscorer, Sergio Aguero, is entering the last six months of his contract. That means he is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with a European club now, ahead of a free transfer in the summer. Extension talks are apparently ongoing between the 32-year-old and his club. But nothing is settled and, according to football agent Bruno Satin (as reported in The Sun), Pochettino is desperate to take his fellow Argentine to PSG. A strikeforce containing Neymar, Kyllian Mbappe and Aguero would certainly be among the most terrifying in Europe. The Ligue 1 champions already have an Argentine goalscorer in Mauro Icardi, but he...

Javier Mascherano retires aged 36

Former Liverpool and Barcelona star Javier Mascherano has announced his retirement from football after a glittering 17-year career. The 36-year-old dad-of-three revealed his decision on Sunday after his current side, top-flight Argentinian team Estudiantes de la Plata, continued their poor start to the season. A spell with West Ham introduced the anchor man to European football although his switch became embroiled in the Hammers' third-party ownership saga that cost the club a £5.5million fine. He moved to Liverpool in early 2007 and went on to make 139 appearances and become a star of the side under Rafa Benitez, before signing for Barcelona three seasons later. At the Camp Nou, Mascherano quickly settled to become an integral part of Pep Guardiola's imperious side. A d...
