Gerrard Labels Ronaldo As The ‘GOAT’

Al-Ettifaq manager Steven Gerrard has labelled Cristiano Ronaldo as “The GOAT”.

Gerrard joined up with Ronaldo in the Saudi Arabian Pro League in July.

During Ronaldo’s first spell with Manchester United, he enjoyed a fierce rivalry with Gerrard who was Liverpool’s captain at the time.

“The arrival of ‘The GOAT’ as we call him, Cristiano (Ronaldo), him arriving in January obviously (was) a huge signing,” Gerrard said in an interview with the Saudi Pro League.

“He still had a lot of football to offer. So, from afar, for six months, I was looking in at Cristiano Ronaldo’s results, at the league, watching some games and watching some highlights.

“I think from that moment, the league around the world had become a very popular talking point for everyone. After Cristiano’s arrival, even more big-name signings, talents and skill sets were joining the league.

Everton Vs Chelsea Will End In A Draw, Sutton Predicts

Published

on

Former Premier League star Chris Sutton has predicted the outcome of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Everton.

According to him, the game slated for Monday will end in a 1-1 draw.

In his column for the BBC, Sutton stated that Chelsea have a tendency to shoot themselves in the foot, which is bound to happen once again.


While the Blues are on a seven-game unbeaten run, the pundit pointed out that four of those results have been draws.

“As usual with Chelsea, I don’t have a clue what to go for here. If you look back at their results then they are on a seven-game unbeaten run in the league but they have drawn four of those matches because they always seem to shoot themselves in the foot. Everton beat Mauricio Pochettino’s side at Goodison Park in December but only got their first league win of 2024 last week.

”Beating Burnley was massive for them, but they need to follow that up by getting something at Stamford Bridge.

“Chelsea are still a developing team so I am going to go with the Toffees to take a point,” he said.

Manu Garba Returns As Golden Eaglets Coach

on

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has appointed Manu Garba as the head coach of the U-17 male team the Golden Eaglets, 11 years after he guided them to the World Cup.

“The Board of Nigeria Football Federation has appointed former U17 World Cup winner Manu Garba as Head Coach of the Nigeria U17 boys, Golden Eaglets,” the football body said Friday.

He was in the same position when he led the team to victory at the FIFA U17 World Cup for Nigeria in the United Arab Emirates in 2013 – Nigeria’s fourth triumph at that stage.

That group included Kelechi Iheanacho, Taiwo Awoniyi, Isaac Success, Musa Mohammed, Chidiebere Nwakali, and goalkeeper Dele Alampasu.

“The squad, which finished as runners-up at the African U17 Championship in Morocco after a penalty shootout defeat by Cote d’Ivoire, defeated Mexico 6-1 in their opening game, drew 3-3 with Sweden and hammered Iraq 5-0. In the Round of 16, they ran Iran ragged 4-1, dispatched Uruguay 2-0 in the quarter-finals, and trounced Sweden 3-0 in the semi-finals, before they dislodged Mexico by the same margin in the final to lift the trophy,” the statement read.

“The former Nigeria international will now immediately resume the role and take charge of the team’s preparations for next month’s WAFU B U17 Championship, taking place in Ghana.”
