Nigerian Coach Amuneke Beat Up American Football Agent, Calls Him A Useless White Man

A football agent, Henry Galliano, was on Monday evening assaulted by a Nigerian coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, at the Rockview Hotel, Owerri, the Imo State capital. The assault,which happened at about 6:00 p.m. was caused by the decision of Golden Eaglets star, Kelechi Iheanacho, to choose Galliano as his agent ahead of one recommended by Amuneke.
As agent, Galliano would be responsible for arranging club transfer deals for Ihenacho, a member of the world-conquering Golden Eaglets.
Iheanacho was selected by FIFA as the best player of the just-concluded FIFA U17 World Cup in the UAE. He has since been linked to top European clubs including FC Porto and Manchester City.
PREMIUM TIMES learnt that Iheanacho has signed an agent deal officially with Galliano with a copy of the agreement sent to the secretariat of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF. The
agent also confirmed that a copy of the agreement with Iheanacho was submitted to the NFF on October 21.
In a chat with PREMIUM TIMES, Galliano and his Nigerian partner, Solomon Oluwaseun, accused Amuneke of assault; and threatened to press charges against him.
They said the coach invited them for a meeting before he got angry, saying that his (Amuneke’s chosen) agent must be the one to handle Iheanacho’s transfer.
“The coach invited us, we went to see him and he started threatening Kelechi that he should follow him to Abuja to sign with his agent who is working with a Nasiru Jubril, a staff of the NFF; or else Nasiru, the man in charge of the ITC
(International Transfer Certificate), will not release kelechi’s ITC to him and they will both make sure that he is banned from Nigeria football; also he will not get a good club.
“When the agent tried to talk back, the coach slapped him and beat him up in the presence of over 25 people,” Solomon said.
In his comment, Galliano said he only came to Nigeria to take Iheanacho abroad for club engagement; and he didn’t know why the coach threatened him.
“I came here to take Kelechi to his club. FC Porto and Manchester City are interested in him but Manchester City has a better package. This was our discussion and conclusion when Mr. Amuneke sent for me, and asked me to go back to my
“He called me names, beat me up and embarrassed me, he said it’s impossible to just take his players,” Galliano said while accusing Amuneke of racial statements.
Galliano, an American, said Keshi ordered Ihenacho to follow him to Abuja and also threatened him; which made the boy to burst into tears and went away.
“Kelechi is nowhere to be found, he started crying after the threat made against him, the small boy is afraid and I hope he will not lose hope.
“Amuneke said he will delay his ITC and deal with him, he called vulgar words, cursing the boys and the players,” he said.
PREMIUM TIMES tried to speak to Iheanacho, but his phone was switched off. His father, when contacted, declined comment.
Amuneke, a Nations Cup winner in 1994 with the Super Eagles,and current assistant coach of the Golden Eaglets, confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that he assaulted the American.
When contacted on phone, an angry Amuneke confirmed that he slapped Galliano. He threatened to beat him up again whenever he sees him.
He, however, denied being involved in the player’s possible transfer.
“Yes, of course I slapped him very well and I will do it again whenever I see him,” Amuneke said.
“He is an , useless white man, he wants to come and reap where he didn’t sow.
“Kelechi is a nobody; yes, I said we helped him into the team, made him, moulded him into what he is today, he shouldn’t allow anybody to fool him,” the former winger said.
When asked the reason for his action and his rumoured roles in Kelechi and other players transfer business, Amuneke said, “I care so much for my players, I am a coach.”
“I’m not an agent but I just look out for the boys. He wants to come and sign a player just like that, he’s an , I will not allow him.
“Because the boy’s parents are poor and illiterate, he wants to use them. We are Nigerians and we’re not foolish,” he added.
Despite Amuneke’s denial, the shady involvement of Nigerian coaches and football officials in the transfer of players to foreign clubs is something muted and known by close observers of Nigerian football.
A football website, Goal.com, recently revealed that Super Eagles midfielder, Sunday Mba’s move to a French club, was scuttled because of the financial demands and involvement of Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, and some officials of the NFF.
Mba had been unveiled by the French club, Bastia, before he was forced to return to Nigeria.
The NFF also recently suspended a former Secretary General of the Federation, Taiwo Ogunjobi, over the latter’s alleged involvement in the transfer of a Flying Eagles forward,Olanrewaju Kayode.

Super Eagles Coach Stephen Keshi Laments Unpaid Salary “NFF Owe Me 7 Months Salaries”

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has said he is very disappointed he is owed more than seven months salary, describing it as his worst experience as the country’s coach.
Keshi is on a monthly salary of five million Naira (31,500 dollars/22,800 euros).
He led Nigeria to their third Africa Cup of Nations triumph in February and he is only a game away from qualifying the country for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The ‘Super Eagles’ won 2-1 in Ethiopia in a first leg playoff and will host the return match next month in Calabar.
Keshi is approaching two years at the helm of Nigeria and he told reporters that being owed salaries for many months has been his most disappointing experience as the coach of Nigeria.
“The lowest point of my career is working and not being paid for seven to eight months. I have never had this kind of experience before,” the former Nigeria captain said.
“In Mali, they will never owe you. Your salary will hit your account before the end of every month. It was the same thing in Togo.
“Owing me up to seven months makes me feel I am not being appreciated. It is like they, my employers, think I am being favoured in what I am doing.
“I am not being favoured. Whatever I am doing here, I am doing it with everything I have and I need to be respected to be given my pay.”
He added: “I don’t like discussing money issues and if there is any NFF (Nigeria Football Federation) member who said we can work for free, then I will want to speak with him face to
“If they say we can work for free and that they are not going to pay, so be it.
“I can’t have my family abroad and I will be in debt because I have not been paid for seven months and somebody is saying we should not complain.”
The NFF have said they are broke and have already been forced to slash the national team’s win bonus of $10,000 by half.

Stephen Keshi Escapes FIFA Ban For Calling Ex-Malawi Coach “A White Dude”

…….FIFA warned Keshi against future abuse

Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi, can now heave a sigh of relief after FIFA only slammed him with a warning for allegedly making comments perceived to have a racist slant towards former Malawi coach, Tom Saintfiet.
A FIFA spokesman exclusively told THISDAY last night that FIFA Disciplinary Committee after investigating Saintfiet’s complaint, decided to impose a warning on Keshi over the matter.
He said that a decision was reached on the subject after the Chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee, Claudio Sulser,referred to Article 57 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code.
Sulser, who is from Switzerland, warned and requested that Keshi must guarantee that incidents of such high gravity do not occur again in the future.
“If such incidents should happen again, the FIFA Disciplinary Committee will be left with no other option than to impose sanctions against the coach, Mr Stephen Keshi,” the FIFA spokesman told THISDAY last night.
By the tone of Article 57, it is assumed that Keshi only escaped with a warning as his conduct was deemed to fall under offensive behaviour and fair play and not racism as Saintfiet claimed.
The article states that: “Anyone who insults someone in way by using offensive gestures or language, or who violates the principle of fair play or whose behaviour is unsporting in any other way may be subject to sanctions in accordance with
Article 10 ff”.
The pronouncement will be a welcome relief for Keshi and officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) ahead of the Super Eagles trip to Addis Ababa, where Nigeria is due to face
Ethiopia on October 13 in the first-leg of the World Cup play-off.
FIFA had last month queried Keshi and given him a two-week ultimatum to respond to Saintfiet’s complaints against him.
In the build-up to the last group match between Nigeria and Malawi on September 7 the two gaffers engaged each other in mind games with Saintfiet insisting that Calabar was not safe to
play the game.
In anger, Keshi had furiously lashed Saintfiet. The Belgian in turn reported the Eagles gaffer to FIFA, asking that the match be moved to a neutral venue as Calabar was deemed unsafe.
It was not until Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police,Mohammed Abubakar, issued a security guarantee before FIFA was convinced that the match be allowed to be played at the designated venue.
In the comments that riled Saintfiet and informed a petition from his former employers, the Football Association of Malawi (FAM), Keshi was quoted to have called the Belgian a white dude:“He is not an African person, he is a white dude. He should go back to Belgium.”

“The manager has done very well and the formation and players here will help me and I just want to gel in, get to know the players and play with them”

Nigerian Footballer Osaze Odemwingie Leaves West Brom, Signs £2.5million Transfer Deal With Cardiff City

Nigeria’s Peter Osaze Odemwingie has sealed a £2.5million move to Premier League new boys Cardiff, having finally agreed a transfer away from West Brom.
The wantaway striker’s fee is around £1m less than what West Brom wanted earlier this week, with the Nigerian signing a three-year deal.
Osaze’s agent Rob Segal arrived in Cardiff to discuss personal terms as the player secured a transfer on deadline day – something he failed to do after his mad dash down to QPR in January.
Stoke City were interested in the Albion outcast and, although the Potters were nervous about the signing because of his indiscipline last season, boss Mark Hughes wants him at the Britannia.
With Osaze’s West Bromwich career over, a number of clubs were prepared to offer him a lifeline.
But Cardiff boss Malky Mackay secured the striker’s signature from the hands of a host of competitors. The transfer has not been announced on the club’s website.
Osaze has previously played for La Louviere, Lille, and Lokomotiv Moscow.
The forward has made 55 appearances for Nigeria scoring nine times for the Super Eagles.

Samuel Eto’o Signs £7million 1-Year Deal To Join Chelsea

Chelsea are to sign Samuel Eto’o on a stunning £7million one-year deal on Thursday after admitting defeat in their pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.
According to Daily Mail, Eto’o, the 32-year-old Cameroon forward, is taking a huge pay cut from the £17m a year that made him the world’s best paid footballer at Anzhi Makhachkala and will sign on a free transfer.
However, Anzhi are understood to have sweetened the deal by giving Eto’o a multi-million-pound lump sum to get him off their wage bill.
Eto’o arrived at London’s St Pancras station on Wednesday night, where he was pictured with super-agent Pini Zahavi, and is due to have a medical at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground
before finalising terms after his advisers held talks on Wednesday.
Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho, a confirmed Eto’o admirer,turned to his Plan B after United steadfastly refused to sell Rooney.
There is a kinship between the Chelsea coach and his new signing.
Eto’o has never been short of an opinion. At Barcelona he took a microphone on live television and called his former club Real Madrid to celebrate Barcelona’s 2005 Spanish title; he dared to publicly attack Ronaldinho’s work-rate and justifiably threatened to leave the field when racially abused from the stands in Zaragoza.
It is no surprise that his first exchange with Mourinho was a heated one.
In the tunnel at Stamford Bridge in 2005 when Chelsea beat Barcelona in the Champions League, a melee followed between players, and Eto’o was vocal in his opinion of Chelsea’s tactics.
Mourinho liked the striker’s feistiness. “I liked the fact he was worked up after a defeat,” recalled Mourinho.
That fire was put to good use when the two joined forces at Inter Milan where Eto’o was the spearhead for Mourinho’s Treble-winning side. During that time, the four-time African Player of the Year scored a winner at Stamford Bridge to end Chelsea’s Champions League hopes.
Silky of touch, dedicated and clinical, Eto’o is also one to nurture the young players around him, a factor that will not be lost on his coach.
Questions will be asked whether he has the pace which made him such a feared opponent in Italy and Spain and there was evidence in Russia and the Europa League last year that his power is dwindling with age.
However, his speed of thought and relationship with Chelsea’s other Anzhi recruit, the Brazilian Willian, still spawned a goal ratio of one every two games. It is a gamble Mourinho is prepared to take and one appreciated by Eto’o.

United reject Chelsea’s 2nd bid for Rooney

Manchester United have rejected a second bid from Premier League rivals Chelsea for unsettled England forward Wayne Rooney, United confirmed on Monday.
Chelsea made an offer thought to be around £25 million ($38.5 million) but it was immediately rejected. A United spokesman said: “A bid was received yesterday and immediately rejected. Our position remains that he is not for sale.”
The second bid and United’s swift response could prompt Rooney to hand in an official transfer request.
New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has made the 27-year-old his top transfer target, but United have had trouble signing other players this summer and have been frustrated by their pursuit of Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas.
United’s new manager David Moyes has repeatedly stressed that Rooney is not for sale. Rooney himself is believed to have been unhappy at Moyes’ remarks that he would effectively have
to be understudy to main striker Robin van Persie.
United later announced that Rooney would not travel to Sweden for Tuesday’s friendly against AIK Fotboll.
The striker injured his shoulder in Saturday’s behind-closed-doors game against Real Betis, the club said.

Ronaldo signs new £75m mega-dea

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly signed a new five-year deal with Real Madrid worth £75million to keep him at the club for the rest of his career.
The Portugal forward had been linked with an emotional return to Manchester United but seems to have settled his differences with the La Liga giants.
But he will instead hope to link up with Gareth Bale should the Wales star complete his protracted, world-record move from Tottenham.
Madrid-based newspaper Marca reports that Ronaldo will earn around £900,000 more each season than Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, making him the highest-paid player in Spain.
The 28-year-old is believed to have struck a deal with Real to increase his share of his image rights, which previously stood at 60 per cent.
Ronaldo, who cost Madrid £80million in 2009, met with club president Florentino Perez in Los Angeles and the pair ironed out their differences. The former United and Sporting Lisbon player had remained coy on his future at a press conference over the weekend.
‘The situation still hasn’t been resolved and I don’t think now is the right time to talk about it,’ he said.
‘Perhaps we’ll be able to give more concrete news about this further down the line but now the only thing in my remit is to train and work.’

Nigerian Blessing Okagbare Wins 100m Race At London Olympics As Africa’s Fastest Woman

Nigerian athlete Blessing Okagbare has broken historical records as the fastest woman in Africa after winning African Women’s 100m race today at the London Olympic Anniversary Games.
She broke the record by coming first and winning in 10.79 seconds.
The talented Nigerian athlete just came back from an injury that kept her bound for months.
The race features winning 100m Olympic gold medalist Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce and luckily Okagbare beats her.
In 2009, Blessing Okagbare scored a 100 m/long jump double at the NCAA Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Championship for University of Texas at El Paso, completing an undefeated collegiate streak that year.

What an achievement! Congrats to her.

Joseph Yobo Chased Wife’s Mum From Their House In Turkey “Adaeze Igwe’s Mother Is A Bad Influence On Her”

Super Eagles Captain Joseph Yobo Chased Out His Mother-In-Law
According to the National Enquirer, the winner of MBGN contest in 2008, Adaeze Igwe who married Joseph Yobo,Super Eagles captain are having a difficult time in their marriage.

3 months after meeting each other in Dec 09, the lovebirds tied the knot in a rush. Joseph & Adaeze are patching their broken relationship as we speak.

The problem in their marriage started when Adaeze’s mother,Mrs Abigail Fashanu came into their home.
We learnt Joseph Yobo and his wife’s mother got into a clash after he learnt she planned to crash their marriage.

It was reliably revealed that the woman who’s married to her third husband with Adaeze and her younger sister from different men, allegedly controls the marriage to the extent of advising her
daughter against getting pregnant for Yobo even after Joey, their son is almost three.

The reason she gave her daughter, we further learnt is because she needed to get back into her sexy shape just in case things no longer work out between her and her Plateau born hubby and might require her re-marrying.

She was also alleged to have instigated Adaeze’s hush return to school barely a year after her marriage as the ex-model is presently furthering her studies in far away Santa Monica College, Los Angeles, USA, where she is reading Communication while her husband and son are in Turkey.

The goal hunter who used to play for Everton of England before making a switch to Turkish side Fernabarche also allegedly found out that Mrs. Fashanu could have a hand in Adaeze’s frequent request of money for irrelevant things as she’s said to have developed an unexplainable interest for frequent shopping.

The fight started When Joseph Yobo’s mother formed the habit of persistent visit to their home in Turkey unannounced to interfere in every minor argument between the couple.

As a result of this, Joseph Yobo placed a ban on her to stop visiting their home as her interference is hurting their marriage.
We learnt Adaeze’s mother was not invited to Joey’s second birthday party.

Insiders revealed that the Super Eagles captain has advised his wife to choose between her mother and her husband.

For now, she has been banned from visiting their home.
This is serious. I suspect the light-skinned madam is trying to eye Joseph Yobo.

Barca in for £17m Torres

BARCELONA are ready to end Fernando
Torres’ Chelsea nightmare.
The Spanish champs are preparing an audacious £17million bid for the misfit striker — £33m LESS than the British record transfer fee Chelsea paid Liverpool for him two years ago.
New boss Jose Mourinho wants face-to-face talks with Torres before making any decisions about the club’s highest-paid player.
But with the Blues chasing £54m Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, Torres knows his days are numbered.
Now it seems a matter of how much of a hit Mourinho’s Chelsea are prepared to take on Torres, who has three years of his £9m-a year contract to run.
Torres, 29, is on international duty with Spain and not due back at Stamford Bridge for another month.
He has just completed his most productive season yet in Chelsea colours with 22 goals, but only eight of those were scored in the Premier League.
Barcelona, who are also preparing a £35m offer for Blues centre-half David Luiz, see Torres as a back-up striker at the Nou Camp and believe a return to Spain can revitalise his flagging career.
They want him to replace international team-mate David Villa, who is set to leave the Nou Camp.
And they are ready to match the £175,000-a- week wages that Torres trousers at the Bridge.

No Bayern move for Lewandowski – Dortmund

BERLIN(AFP) – Robert Lewandowski will not
sign for Bayern Munich this year, Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim
Watzke said in an interview published on
Monday, amid speculation the Poland striker was eyeing a move to the German and European champions.
“Robert Lewandowski will definitely not be transferred to Bayern in 2013,” Watzke was quoted as saying by the tabloid Bild. “That’s final. We’ve told Robert and his agent.” Watzke accepted that it was “completely
understandable” that players can talk about their future and revealed that he had discussed the matter twice with his counterparts in Munich.
“We explained to Bayern that, if only for
financial compliance (as Dortmund is listed on the German stock exchange), we needed a written offer for Lewandowski. But such an offer hasn’t been received yet,” he added.
“The matter’s closed and there’s no anger or resentment… if Robert still wants to go to Bayern, he’ll have the chance to do it next year.”
Lewandowski, 24, told Bild earlier this month that he wanted to leave the beaten Champions League finalists before the start of next season, although he did not specifically mention Bayern.
Should Lewandowski leave Dortmund next year, the club would take a financial hit, given that he would no longer be under contract,allowing Bayern — or any other club — to acquire his services for free.
Currently, he is thought to be worth an estimated 25 million euros ($33 million, £21
Bayern, runaway winners of last season’s Bundelsiga, as well as the German Cup and Champions League, have already secured the transfer of Dortmund’s young Germany prodigy Mario Goetze for 37 million euros.
