Skillful Super Eagles winger Chidera Ejuke has been named CSKA Moscow’s best player in July-August 2021, NaijaNews247 reports.

Winning the award caps an incredible few weeks for the talented 23-year-old, who dazzled everyone, especially in the first half, during Nigeria’s 2-1 road win vs Cape Verde in a 2022 World Cup qualifier.

He continued to shine for CSKA Moscow upon his return to Russia, winning the Man of the Match award in the last round of matches against Arsenal Tula.

In a poll to determine the best player of CSKA Moscow since the start of the 2021-2022 season, Ejuke claimed 44 percent of the votes to place first ahead of Alan Dzagoev and Igor Akinfeev.

So far this season, the Super Eagles star played seven games in total, logged 473 minutes and has an excellent disciplinary record as he did not receive a yellow or red card.

Ejuke opened his account for the season against Dynamo Moscow on game week three, provided an assist the following matchday, before bagging his second goal this term versus Akhmat Grozny.

He joined the Muscovites in August 2020 from Dutch Eredivisie side SC Heerenveen.

The Confederation of African Football popularly known as CAF held an award ceremony yesterday in Rabat, Morocco where outstanding African players were duly rewarded for their hard work which doesn’t go unnoticed.

Sadio Mane was named the CAF footballer of the Year beating fellow Teranga Lions teammate and Chelsea’s shot stopper, Edouard Mendy and former Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah to the award which was the case for Asisat Oshoala who made history by winning her fifth record award as the first ever player to do so in history, after surpassing Samuel Eto’o and compatriot Perpetua Nwokocha who had four each as the joint most before yesterday.

Mike Tyson thinks he’s going to die ‘really soon’

Mike Tyson

Despite being a multi-millionaire, boxing legend Mike Tyson has acknowledged his financial troubles with his wife and expressed his belief that his death is approaching “very soon.”

The former heavyweight champion, 56, said to trauma and addiction therapist Sean McFarland on his podcast “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson” that he feels his time is almost over.

Of course, Tyson continued, “We are all going to die one day.”

Then, when I see those tiny marks on my face in the mirror, I exclaim, “Wow. That indicates that I will soon reach the end of my shelf life “.’

Money “doesn’t matter to me,” Tyson continued in a morbid dialogue, adding that it gives one a false sense of security.

I usually tell people that when you have a lot of money, you can’t expect anyone to love you because they believe that money will make them happy and since they have never had money before, he continued.

When you have a lot of money, you think you’re invincible, which is untrue.

Tyson added that he speaks with his third wife Lakiha Spicer, who claimed that money will ensure her long-term stability after his death.

“Exactly what is security?” He questioned.

“I’m not sure. Is it secure to deposit money in a bank and receive a check each week that will allow you to support yourself for the rest of your life?

It does not guarantee that you won’t contract a sickness or be struck by an automobile. Can you be protected by money if you jump from a bridge?

  Finidi: We Have To Defend Better

In 1985, Tyson competed in his first professional fight and defeated Hector Mercedes at the age of 18.

As the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC, and IBF belts, as well as the only heavyweight fighter to unify them in succession, “Iron Mike” immediately developed a reputation for his vicious and terrifying approach.

He was sentenced to three years in prison for the July 1991 rape of teenaged Desiree Washington, and in 2003, he declared bankruptcy despite having made over $30 million from some of his fights and $300 million throughout his career.

Tyson is also notorious for biting Evander Holyfield’s ear during their fight in June 1997.

After the bout in Las Vegas, a portion of Holyfield’s right ear that had been severed during the chomp was discovered on the ring floor.
