Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has issued a strong warning to his players ahead of their English Premier League opener against Leeds United on August 14.

 

Some players who represented their countries at the Euro 2020 and Copa America are expected to return to the team on Monday.

 

Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho played for England during the Euro 2020, while Paul Pogba played for France and Fred represented Brazil at the Copa America.

 

 

But Solskjaer has now sent out a warning to his players that they cannot expect to start the season opener against Leeds if their fitness is not up to requirements.

 

“With the boys who have not come back yet, I have not got a Scooby-Doo how they are fitness wise,” Solskjaer said as quoted by Daily Star.

 

“Everyone’s due in on Monday, they have got two weeks until the first game and that means it’s three weeks since their last game ­— Fred at the Copa America and the English finalists.

 

“So we will see how they are, what fitness levels they are at, because it’s also down to what they have done during the holidays.

 

 

“I can’t just throw them in if they are not fit enough.”

  2. Recall it was widely reported that the US cancelled $875 million ammunition deal with the US because of President Muhammadu Buhari’s bad human rights record.

    Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said the federal government does not have any $875 million ammunition deal with the United States.

    According to him, such a news is fake.

    Recall it was widely reported that the US cancelled $875 million ammunition deal with the US because of President Muhammadu Buhari’s bad human rights record.

    Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja, the minister said there was no contract of such nature and sum between Nigeria and the US

    “There is no contract of arms between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the United States of America today apart from the 12 Super Tucano Attack Helicopters of which six had been delivered.

    “We are quite satisfied with the progress and cooperation that we received from the government of the US on this issue.

    “As a matter of fact, six of the Tucano helicopter will be launched on Aug. 3, this year.

    “We are not aware of the so called 875million USD arms contract or some helicopters which they said some lawmakers in the US are trying to persuade the president of the US not to honour

    ”The relationship between Nigeria and the US is smooth and waxing stronger,’’ he said.

    The reports in some sections of the media had claimed that influential U.S. lawmakers were masterminding a hold on a proposed sale of ammunition and attack helicopters to Nigeria over allegations of human rights abuses and anti-democratic actions of the present administration.

    The report listed the blocked proposed sale to include 12 AH-1 Cobra attack helicopters accompanied by defence systems, 28 helicopter engines produced by GE Aviation and 14 military-grade aircraft navigation systems made by Honeywell.
