Ronaldo Asks Man Utd board to Replace Solskjaer with Zidane
According to El Chiringuito, Cristiano Ronaldo has advised Manchester United’s board to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Zinedine Zidane.
Following a 4-2 loss to Leicester City on Saturday, Solskjaer has been under greater scrutiny.
The Red Devils have lost three matches in the Premier League.
United’s leadership is said to have given Solskjaer their full support, believing the 48-year-old would enhance the team’s performance.
Senior officials at Old Trafford, on the other hand, are weighing their alternatives and have identified him as a viable contender, based on Ronaldo’s proposal.
According to the report, Zidane has met with United’s management, but he is interested in succeeding Didier Deschamps as France’s new head coach.
It’s also been reported that Zidane was approached by both PSG and Newcastle United, but the former Real Madrid manager declined both offers.

Tinubu will be a presidential candidate for the APC, according to a lawmaker.
Hon Gbolahan Yishawu, a member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, has stated that the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, is ready to nominate Bola Tinubu, the party’s national leader, as its presidential candidate in 2023.
The outcome of Saturday’s State Congress, according to Yishawu, demonstrated that they were ready to appoint Tinubu the APC’s flag bearer.
The legislator, who represents Eti-Osa II, made the statement immediately after the congress, which took place at Lagos State’s Mobolaji Johnson Arena Stadium.
The success of the Congress, according to Yishawu, demonstrated that internal democracy was here to stay.
He praised party members for maintaining peace and order throughout the congress’s conclusion.
“As you can see here, everything is peaceful and orderly, and the rules and regulations of the party are being played according to the party’s constitution, and we are upholding all democratic and pragmatic stakeholders of today, internal democracy is working in the All Progressive Congress party,”
“For us in Lagos State, the Congress demonstrates that we are one and unified, and that we can galvanize ourselves, and by God’s help, our wish is for our leader, Aisiwaju Bola Tinubu, to be the party’s presidential candidate in 2023.”
Tinubu is rumored to be eyeing the presidency in 2023.
Posters have been seen in certain states, and a campaign office has been established in Abuja.
Despite the outpouring of support from his fans, the former governor of Lagos State has stayed mute about his presidential ambitions.
Turkey President warned by Islamic group As he arrives Nigeria today
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has issued a strong warning to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, requesting that he refrain from pursuing opposition figures in Turkey.
MURIC chastised the president ahead of his state visit to Nigeria today, Monday.
In a statement issued by its director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, the Muslim rights group accused turkey President, Erdogan, of arbitrary arrests, torture, political assassinations, and extended incarceration of opponents and critics, notably members of the Hizmet Movement.
The President is scheduled to sign several commercial agreements with President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria.
Erdogan’s visit, according to MURIC, leaves a bad taste in the mouth due to his alleged undemocratic and dictatorial policies in Turkey.
“On the 15th of July, 2016, he staged a phony coup to legitimize massive constitutional changes, and he arrogated extensive powers to himself as president,”
“Irregular arrests, torture, political assassinations, and extended imprisonments of opposition figures and critics, notably members of the Hizmet Movement, followed.”
Key members of Hizmet’s travel passports were taken, as were their personal belongings. Thousands of them were imprisoned without a proper trial. Outside of Turkey, members of the organization were not allowed to return”
“Though Hizmet is not a political organization that poses a danger to Erdogan’s position, the group had become immensely popular, and Erdogan, like many dictators and tyrants, was envious of it. Erdogan’s ambassadors in Nigeria are harassing Turkish residents and Hizmet Movement members who are providing humanitarian aid in the country. They were deemed persona non grata in Turkey and were denied entry to their own country. Their travel documents were confiscated, preventing them the ability to return home.
“Turkey President, Erdogan also employs his Nigerian ambassadors to identify Hizmet members as terrorists.” This is a nefarious plot to persuade Nigerian security agencies to detain, threaten, and punish innocent migrants and asylum seekers. Members of their families who remain in Turkey are also unable to go to Nigeria to reunite with their loved ones. As a result, we have Recep the tyrant impersonating a liberal, Tayyip the dictator impersonating a democracy, and Erdogan the bully impersonating a hero. Erdogan has forcibly removed spouses from their wives and children from their parents, fearful of his own shadow.
“MURIC declares definitely and definitively that Hizmet members are peace-loving individuals dedicated to serving Nigerians and other people across the world.” This is accomplished through building international level elementary and secondary schools, as well as universities and hospitals. They also aid in the construction of boreholes in Nigerian schools and villages. Hizmet is thus only a network of humanitarian workers dedicated to bringing humanity from ignorance to knowledge and from poverty to the peak of economic liberation. This is the epitome of humanity’s service. “How can anyone in their right mind call such a movement a terrorist organization?” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s double standard and hypocritical pretensions are rejected by MURIC. We demand that he respect the privacy of Hizmet members in Nigeria. If Erdogan wants to be accepted by the world community, he must throw open the doors of Turkish jails and torture chambers. Erdogan is now well recognized as a staunch opponent of democracy across the world. Fundamental human rights granted by Allah, including as freedom of expression, movement, association, and the rule of law, are alien to Erdogan’s political ideology.
Turkey has devolved into a massive prison camp under the control of a ruthless dictator.
“We call on the international community to act in the issue of Turkish political prisoners. Thousands of people are imprisoned without charge or trial. Erdogan’s operatives are torturing far too many people. Hundreds of Turkish people with loved ones living abroad should be permitted to leave the country. Amnesty International and all other civil society organizations across the globe are urged to speak out against Erdogan’s inhumane treatment of his perceived adversaries.
“We advise President Muhammadu Buhari to be careful of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s theatrics as the two nations pursue economic partnerships.” Erdogan is the modern Balkan fox, the Mediterranean’s Otto Von Bismarck, and the Black Sea’s Jekyll and Hyde. Erdogan is untrustworthy. He is devoid of any semblance of humanity.”
