mourinho dismay

 

 

Chelsea sacked Mourinho after the 52-year-old Portuguese, who took charge of the club in June 2013, has struggled against being amidst the bottom three in the league table. His sack is coming seven months after he won the Premier League title and League Cup title for the club, last season. 

 

However, this season, the club has lost nine of their 16 league games and presently occupies 16th position on the table. Mourinho's last match for the club was on Monday in which they were defeated 2-1 by Leicester City.

 

Speculations have it that either Pep Guardiola, Guus Hiddink, Brendan Rodgers or Juande Ramos would be a likely replacement for Mourinho. Below is the statistics of Mourinho's performance in the Barclays Premier League:

Season.     M.    W.   D.   L.    W.   %

2004-05.    38.   29    8.   1.   76.    32

2005-06.    38.   29    4.   5.   76.    32

2006-07.    38.    24  11    3.   63.    16

2007-08.      6.      3.   2.   1.   50

2013-14.     38.    25   7.   6.   65.      7

2014-15.     38.    26   9.   3.   68.     42

2015-16.     16.      4.   3.  9.   25

nnamdi kanuu

 

The embattled Radio Biafra Director, Nnamdi Kanu, may finally have survived the long incarceration. The Abuja Federal High Court has ordered his immediate release. 

 

This comes a day after the Senior Magistrate Court in Wuse Zone 2 discharged Kanu of the allegations brought against him by the DSS.
The accused person is hereby discharged and the case struck out," Magistrate Shuaibu Usman ruled.

 

Recent reports show that prosecution counsel, Moses Idakwo, said the DSS had found some facts which showed that the accused had been involved in terrorism and had also been financing terrorism hence the matter was no longer under the jurisdiction of the court.

 

"The complainant is, therefore, applying to discontinue the matter under section 108(1) of the administration of criminal justice act 2015." Idakwo said.

"A declaration that the 1st respondent has a duty to make electoral materials available in the applicant's polling unit 11 for the yet to be rescheduled Bayelsa governorship election. A declaration that the 2nd respondent has a duty to ensure that the applicant exercises his right to vote in an environment that is devoid of violence and insecurity."
