Turkish club, Fenerbahce, are set to return on loan winder Victor Moses back to Chelsea according to reports in Turkish media.
Moses, who gradauted from the Crystal Palace Academy, previously played on loan for English clubs Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham after he was deemed surplus to requirements at parent club, Chelsea.
Chelsea loaned him to Fenerbahce this season, but his form coupled with injuries, has made his time in Turkey seem like a bad move, as he hasn’t scored any goal or made any asisists in his last three matches.
According to top Turkish media outlet, Fotospor, Fenerbahce will send Moses back to Chelsea in January as club manager Ersun Yanal isn’t happy with Moses’ contribution and wants to sign a right winger in January.
According to another Turkish news media outfit Fanatik, the AFCON winning former Nigerian international is plotting to make a comeback to Stamford Bridge with the approval of Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.
Moses and Lampard were teammates in the Nigerian’s first season at the west London club and Lampard is aware of his qualities.
Moses’s original agreement with the Turkish Super Lig side is expected to run out on May 31, 2020 and his contract with Chelsea ends at the end of next season.
Olympic champion and judo trainer sentenced for sexually abusing minors
Austrian Olympic champion and Judo instructor, Peter Seisenbacher, has been sentenced to five years in jail for sexually abusing two girls he coached.
One girl was nine and another was just 13 when the abuses started. The Vienna court found that the abuse took place in the late 1990s and early 2000s. A third woman says Seisenbacher, 59, tried to sexually abuse her at a holiday camp when she was 16.He denied the charges. He won two Olympic gold medals, in 1984 and 1988.
The presiding judge told the court: “We didn’t have the impression that the three lied, that they were mistaken, or that they jointly conspired.” Seisenbacher can appeal against the sentence. Seisenbacher’s trial had been scheduled to start in December 2016 but he was nowhere to be found until he turned up in Georgia in 2017, then moved on to Ukraine. He was handed over to Austria in September.
Emery out of Arsenal
Unai Emery has been fired as Arsenal head coach, with Freddie Ljungberg installed as the club’s interim head coach.
Arsenal’s executives, with the support of Josh Kroenke, have pulled the trigger on the Spaniard after the club produced their worst run of results since 1992.
Thursday night’s defeat at home to Eintracht Frankfurt was Arsenal’s seventh consecutive match without a victory.
Josh Kroenke, the son of owner Stan, said: “Our most sincere thanks go to Unai and his colleagues who were unrelenting in their efforts to get the club back to competing at the level we all expect and demand. We wish Unai and his team nothing but future success.”
In a club statement, Arsenal said the search for a new head coach is underway.
Freddie Ljungberg will be put in temporary charge for Sunday’s game against Norwich City, with Steve Bould assisting the former Arsenal midfielder.
Ljungberg will remain in charge until Arsenal can make a permanent appointment, with Mikel Arteta, Max Allegri and Nuno Espirito Santo all on the club’s radar.
Russian Athletes Banned
The World Anti-Doping Agency(WDA) has through a key panel recommended that Russia be slammed with a four-year ban from competing in any sporting activities over its non-compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code
In a statement released on the 25th of November, the recommendation by the Compliance Review Committee was based on a forensic review of inconsistencies found in some of the data that was obtained by the agency from the Moscow lab in January. Although the recommendation has been criticized by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who said it amounted to one more western effort to sideline Russia, the statement said the final decision will rest with WADA’s Executive Committee which will consider the recommendation and the proposed consequences on December 9.
Besides the ban from major sporting events, the recommendation also includes banning Russia from hosting major competitions and from bidding for such events.
Plans are underway to ensure Russian athletes apply to compete as ‘neutrals’ in upcoming competitions, although the decision is not final yet.
