Samuel Kalu collapsed during Ligue 1 match - Naija News 247

The 23-year-old winger, Samuel Kalu gave fans and his colleagues a scare after he collapsed on the pitch during Ligue 1 match on Sunday.

Super Eagles midfielder John Ogu has confirmed that his international compatriot Samuel Kalu is okay after collapsing on the pitch last night.

Kalu collapsed in the early stages of Bordeaux’s Ligue 1 clash against Olympique Marseille. The Nigerian international gave everyone a scare when he went down unchallenged, with both sets of players calling on the paramedics to rush onto the pitch.

Fortunately, he regained consciousness after receiving treatment. He was even able to continue the match, although he went off for Remi Oudin in the 14th minute.

Bordeaux were able to claw their way back from two goals down for a 2-2 draw, but it was all about Kalu’s health status after the match.

However, John Ogu has now confirmed that the former Gent winger is doing okay. Ogu, who is currently without a club, shared a screenshot of his video call with Kalu on his Twitter page.

It was believed that Kalu collapsed due to heat exhaustion, but he is set to undergo further tests today to determine what went wrong.

Appeal Court gives NFF go-ahead to hold September 30 election

NFF

The Appeal Court has given the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) the green light to conduct its elective congress scheduled for tomorrow in Benin, Edo State.

With less than 24 hours to go, multiple sources reported on Thursday that the Appeal Court ruled that the election can now go-ahead.

The NFF had appealed a September 15 Federal High Court ruling that sought to stop the election from taking place tomorrow on September 30, 2022.

Peoples Gazette had earlier reported that Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court ordered NFF and the Ministry of Sports to postpone the election indefinitely, until the outcome of suits brought against the NFF was determined.

The federal government had on Wednesday directed football stakeholders in the country and other concerned parties to abide by the Federal High Court ruling not to conduct the federation’s executive committee elections.

The initial suits were brought against the NFF, Amaju Pinnick, and the Minister of Sports and Youth Development by Harrison Jalla, Victor Baribote, Austin Popo, and the registered trustees of the National Association of Nigeria Footballers (NANF).

The plaintiffs want an amendment to the 2010 NFF statutes. They seek equal representation for all the five statutory bodies that make up the NFF as it relates to voting rights and representation on the NFF Board.

Controversial psychologist Jordan Peterson says he helped Ronaldo overcome mental health crisis

Cristiano Ronaldo and Jordan Peterson

Controversial right-wing psychologist Jordan Peterson has claimed that he helped Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo through a mental health breakdown.

Ronaldo came under heavy criticisms earlier this month when the Portuguese forward posted an Instagram picture of him and Peterson, who has been accused for his racist and misogynist view, alongside a caption that says “Nice to see you my friend”.

Peterson, 60, appeared as a guest on British TV host show ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored’ – where the two discussed the Canadian professor meeting the former Real Madrid player.

Morgan is also a close friend of Ronaldo and has always jumped in the defence of the 37-year-old football icon.

Morgan told Peterson that “It seemed to me, talking to him (Ronaldo) in the last couple of days after he saw you, he’s in a much better place.”

Peterson responded by boasting about himself and gave details on him meeting Ronaldo. “That’s what happens when you hang out with a reprobate like me.”

“He invited me to come and see him,” Peterson continued. “He’d had some trouble in his life a few months ago and a friend of his sent him some of my videos and he said he’d watched those.

“Then he read one of my books and found it helpful. He wanted to talk.

“I went out to his house and we talked for about two hours. He showed me all his equipment for staying in tip-top condition, and we talked about his companies. Mostly we talked about what he wanted in the future and some of the obstacles that he’s facing.”

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner and partner Georgina Rodriguez lost one of their newborn twins earlier this year.

I want more, Benzema says after picking hattrick awards in one day

Karim Benzema

Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema said he wants more after receiving his first-ever Pichichi Trophy for finishing as the top scorer in the 2021/22 La Liga campaign.

Benzema was impressive in the Los Blancos’ campaign last season. He scored 27 goals as Real Madrid won their record 35th La Liga title.

The presentation ceremony was held at the Goya Theatre, and the 34-year-old picked La Liga Santander Pichichi Trophy straight out of training.

He also won the Di Stefano Trophy for being the best player for the 2021/22 season and the Hyundai Supporters’ MVP Trophy.

The Frenchman said he is very proud of work and admitted this year is going to be difficult but he will always want more.

“I feel very proud of my work.

“I think this year is going to be a difficult year. I always want to do more.

“I’m going to try and do more, that includes winning LaLiga, scoring a lot of goals and most importantly, enjoying myself on the pitch.

“It’s a very important trophy for me, thanks to my teammates.

“Without them I wouldn’t be here today. Thanks to the fans, the club and the president.

“Every year is different, every year our rivals want to win LaLiga and let’s see what happens this year.

“But we are strong and let’s see what happens,” he commented.

Benzema had admitted last month that Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid has given him a chance to take his game to the next level.

He said Ronaldo’s departure gave him the opportunity to step forward and score goals.

“With him I had another role and when he left, I knew I could take a step forward in scoring goals, but still playing football.

“What has changed since then is my goal tally, but I’m still playing the way I think you have to play this game. The figures mean I’m not far behind the Real Madrid legends, and that gives me confidence, even though I know that reaching Cristiano’s goal [figures] is impossible.”
