first_imgThe 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Schalke 04, and has since returned to Barcelona, with whom he has a contract until 2023.Record says Benfica won’t have an easy task to sign the player, since there’s a big competition from the likes of Everton, Fenerbahçe and Wolverhampton Wanderers.The newspaper writes that it was first the Toffees and Wolves who made their approaches asking for the conditions for the signing. Then the Turkish side joined the race.Even though the Eagles have been following him since January, they’re still to make a move.Embed from Getty ImagesThe report claims the Todibo isn’t staying at Barcelona due to the big fight for a place in the team.However, there’s no information on how much he’d cost. All they say is that the Catalan side demanded €25m for Schalke 04 to keep him, and that’s why the Bundesliga side gave up on the signing.If that is all they are asking for, then Everton and Wolves shouldn’t have too much of a problem meeting that.First, however, they’ll probably want to finish the Premier League campaign before delving into the complicated and frustrating world of making offers for players.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

AFCON Winner Emenike Urges Youngsters To Aspire For Laurels (AUDIO)

first_imgFormer Nigeria striker Emmanuel Emenike has advised young footballers to always aspire to win laurels with the national team because the ‘great deal’ of trophies is often the only thing that makes international careers worthwhile.The former Fenerbahce and Spartak Moscow forward spear-headed Nigeria’s attack as the Super Eagles claimed a 3rd Africa Cup of Nations title in South Africa, seven years ago, under the tutelage of late Stephen Keshi.Looking back at the glorious moment, as well as the euphoria, paparazzi and fame that followed it, the 32-year-old, who retired from international football in 2015, said: “Winning (2013) AFCON was a great feeling at that moment, but I didn’t know how big it was till now that I have stopped playing for the national team and seeing the way people appreciate me when I go out there.Audio Playerhttps://www.busybuddiesng.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Emenike-May-9.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Download Audio“I think winning AFCON is a big thing. So, I advise every young player to always put this in their mind that winning something for Nigeria is a big deal. You won’t understand how big it is until you stop playing for Nigeria. But it is a big, big, big deal – winning something for Nigeria,” Emenike stressed.Aside from helping Nigeria win the 2013 AFCON, Emenike also emerged as the tournament’s joint-topscorer with 4 goals, a feat he said he never planned for heading to South Africa.“Being the top scorer is great; it’s good, which is something I did put in my head before going into the tournament,” he said.Audio Playerhttps://www.busybuddiesng.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Emenike-2-May-9.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Download Audio“What we had in our head was to win the trophy, but coming out as the top scorer was great. Aside from being the top scorer, winning the tournament, that is, winning those two trophies was a big bonus in my life.”The former Olympiacos and West Ham striker managed 9 goals in 37 appearances with the Super Eagles before his premature retirement from the national team in 2015 following a 4-year stint.Emenike is currently a free agent after leaving Belgian side Westerlo in 2019.RelatedEmenike Backs Obasi’s Super Eagles Bribery ClaimsMay 13, 2020In “Featured”2019 AFCON: Nigeria Lacks Star Players – RohrFebruary 13, 2019In “AFCON”INSIDE AFCON 2019: Tanzania Football Federation Guarantee Emmanuel Amuneke’s FutureJuly 3, 2019In “AFCON”last_img read more
