Seeing that the league kept going, The Nigerian midfielder has terminated his contract by mutual agreement with his club, Trabzonspor, giving up the remaining months of his salary. I still had one more year of contract, but he has not hesitated to travel to London (city where he lives with his family since his time in Chelsea) to meet yours.Not all fans have taken the news well, criticizing that it left them lying in the middle of the season (he was the undisputed starter), but footballers of the stature of Radamel FalcaoColombian striker from Galatasaray, have publicly supported their decision: “Life is more important than soccer.” Now Obi Mikel, at 32 years old, is free and looking for a team for the next campaign. The player already criticized the Turkish league before the match against Istanbul Basaksehir, encounter for which it was summoned in which it did not play: “There is more to life than soccer. I don’t feel comfortable and I don’t want to play soccer in this situation. Everyone should be at home with their families and loved ones at such a critical time. The season should be canceled as the world faces a turbulent moment. “ John Obi Mikel has left his job because of the coronavirus crisis. The disease affects the entire planet, but despite this, there are competitions like the Turkish Super League that continue (now behind closed doors). The measure has not convinced the soccer players too much, who see how the rest of the tournaments have been suspended until the pandemic is controlled, but in the case of the Nigerian the decision has been drastic.
In Italy speculates on the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid, but the chances of the Portuguese returning to the Santiago Bernabéu they are absolutely and completely null. “It does not fit into the Club’s sports policy,” say top Madrid sources. Madrid has a great memory of Cristiano and its president, Florentino Pérez, has high esteem for him “But his time has passed and the sports goals are different,” confirmed the same sources. Several Italian media, and with greater intensity ‘Il Corriere dello Sport’, published in Rome, have been speculating for days with the return of Cristiano, 35, who still has two contracts left with his team, Juventus, in which he wins 31 million euros and in which enjoy a flat tax rate of one hundred thousand euros for your advertising revenue, which also represent tens of millions annually. The theory in Italy is that Juventus wants to reduce payrolls due to the economic impact of the coronavirus, and that would put Cristiano on the market for 60 million euros, 40 million less than what he paid to Real Madrid for CR7. If so, of course their destination “will not be Madrid,” they emphatically insist on Concha Espina.Mbappé’s number 1 priority remains, and they do not give up the PSG striker although they are aware of the difficulties involved in such a signing. But if Madrid is considering hiring a crack, the position is for the young Frenchman, for whom they are willing to wait at the Bernabéu offices. Meanwhile, the profile of players followed by the White Club is the one that has been seen in recent times with the additions of Vinicius or Rodrigo, young players with great projection.

UNHAPPY SELECTORS ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC): A report into alleged interference in the selection process has determined that the two highest ranking officials of the West Indies Cricket Board, spoke without “approval” when they backed the retention of Shiv Chanderpaul for the Australia series. WICB president Dave Cameron and his vice-president, Emmanuel Nanthan, had supported Chanderpaul’s selection last May after the Clive Lloyd-led selection panel had decided to drop the veteran left-hander. In a media release on Saturday, the WICB said the findings of the report showed that both Cameron and Nanthan had spoken in personal capacities. “The findings stated that the actions of the president and vice-president to support the selection of Shivnarine Chanderpaul for the home series in May last year, were personal statements and were done without approval of the Board of Directors,” the release said. Chanderpaul was controversially left out of the squad for Australia series following a run of low scores in previous series against South Africa and England. According to media reports at the time, Cameron attempted to have Chanderpaul included against the will of selectors. The report, conducted by human resource specialist Colin Barnett, was commissioned by the WICB after head coach Phil Simmons controversially claimed last September that there had been “outside interference” in the selection of the one-day squad to tour Sri Lanka. Two other selection cases came under scrutiny of the report, namely the Test squad to Australia last December and the cancelled one-day international series against Zimbabwe. According to the release, the report found no discrepancies in these cases. “The other findings reported support the roles of the director of cricket (Richard Pybus) and the selectors and that they were following the existing selection policies and guidelines.” The report also put forward a list of recommendations to improve the overall selection process, among these the refining of selection policies, updating the terms of reference for selectors and advising the public on selection criteria. Simmons stunned the cricket fraternity ahead of the Test tour of Sri Lanka last year when he told a media conference that the selection of the tour had suffered from “outside interference”. The Trinidadian, who had then been only recently appointed, said he and chairman Lloyd had agreed on the need for Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard to be recalled to the ODI squad only to be outvoted by the three other selectors Eldine Baptiste, Courtney Walsh and Courtney Browne. Simmons said those with influence had interfered to ensure the two players remained sidelined. He was subsequently suspended for the Sri Lanka tour, but reinstated for the Australia series following an inquiry.
