I struggled with injury at 2010 World Cup – Echiejile

first_img The former Bendel Insurance defender was named in the Super Eagles 23-man squad as a back up for Taye Taiwo at the first-ever world cup on African soil. Echiejile made his world cup debut in Nigeria’s second group match against Greece after Taye Taiwo suffered an injury in the first match against Argentina. Unfortunately, he got injured in the match against the Greeks, and he was forced to play through pain against South Korea when he replaced an injured Joseph Yobo at half time. “In 2010 I was at the World Cup, and we had a Swedish coach Lars Lagerback who took over from Shuaibu Amodu, and at the end of the day we had preparatory games before the tournament,” Echiejile told the Super Eagles Media Team on Instagram Live.Advertisement Loading… “Most of the players might be tired, from one injury to another injury, but at the end of the day, we were able to have a fair tournament. It’s not easy in the World Cup to play three games, but we had a fair tournament. “For we the young players it was a good eye-opener for us to get to see the world stage of football and it was something great, this is really the big stage. “Injury didn’t allow me as a person to really enjoy the tournament, but that is football, you just have to accept it and move on which I did”. The former Monaco defender was also part of the Super Eagles squad to the 2018 FIFA world cup in Russia. Still, he was unable to make an appearance in the competition as the Super Eagles crashed out in the first round. read also:Elderson Echiejile goes spiritual craves divine favour Echiejile is currently without a club after leaving Finnish club, Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi in 2019 by mutual consent.

Mayweather demands £500m to make stunning boxing return

first_img Mayweather hung up his gloves after his big-money cross-sports fight against UFC legend Conor McGregor in 2017. He is believed to have earned around £300m for the scrap that saw him stop McGregor in the 10th round at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The 43-year-old Michigan man often teases a return to the sport that made him a legend in training videos. But he says it would take a monumental money offer to get him lacing the gloves back up. He has previously said he would rematch McGregor and box UFC champ Khabib Nurmagomedov – but only for £464m. Speaking to, ‘The Money’ said: “If I see an opportunity where I can entertain and have a little fun and make six hundred million, why not? “If I am going to do something it’s got to be worth it.

But the American, who retired with a perfect 50-0 fight record, doesn’t fancy coming back to fight “any of the younger guys”. “But there’s no number that’s worth me getting back in that ring and fighting these young fighters to get any type of wear and tear on my body.” Mayweather then said that he would prefer any return to the boxing ring to be in exhibition bouts. He famously left Tenshin Nasukawa in tears in one of these after battering the Japanese kickboxer into a first-round KO back in December 2018. Mayweather added: “Am I going to fight any fighters as of right now? No. “I’m retired. I’m retired from the sport of boxing. “I’m training, having fun, and enjoying life. I don’t want for anything. I’m not retired from business. “When I beat McGregor, they said ‘That ain’t 50 fights (50-0)’. But these guys are fighting and they are making a couple of dollars, they’re crazy.” read also:Ronaldo, Mayweather own supercars but not richest collection in sport Mayweather also laughed off recent rumours that he has ran out of money, saying that he “makes seven figures every month” from “smart investments”.

Arsenal reject £3m bid for Folarin Balogun

first_img New signings Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes both hit the ground running against Fulham but Mikel Arteta is still on the lookout for new signings. Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar and Brentford keeper David Raya are two of the names on their radar. Chris Wilder was hopeful of landing Balogun to help boost his attacking options but could now turn his attentions to Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster. There has been interest in Balogun from Germany and the forward could move abroad if Arsenal receive any offers that meet their demands. Arsenal chiefs would rather receive a fee for the academy star than lose him for nothing and are resigned to him leaving. Balogun was offered a new contract at the club but failed to agree terms. He feels he would be given a better chance of first-team football elsewhere given he is yet to make his senior debut while other stars from Arsenal’s academy are involved regularly in Mikel Arteta’s plans.

The highly-rated 19-year-old is due to leave the club next summer after entering the final 12 months of his contract with no hint of him signing a new deal. Balogun is able to enter pre-contract negotiations with other clubs from January ahead of a proposed free transfer when his deal expires. That would leave Arsenal entitled to only a small fee by way of compensation via the Elite Player Performance Programme. Sheffield Utd looked to move ahead of other interested parties by offering £3m up front with a range of add-on incentives, but it falls well short of Arsenal’s valuation. According to The Mail , The Gunners want a deal worth a total of £15m for the US-born forward, to include an initial fee plus various bonus payments. Balogun has been attracting interest from Southampton, Brighton and AC Milan, while Arsenal turned down a £5m approach from Brentford earlier this year. He has been with Arsenal since the age of 10 and has shown prolific form in the under-18s and under-23s over the past two seasons.last_img read more
