EPL: Manchester United under fire for not appointing Premier League winner as manager

Former Liverpool star, Stewart Downing, has thumped Manchester United for not appointing Premier League winner, Antonio Conte, as their while he was available earlier this season.

Downing hit out at Man United for going for whoever’s available rather than for the best candidates.

According to him, Conte would have been the perfect candidate for the Old Trafford job, but the Red Devils missed the trick.

Recall that Man United had the opportunity to appoint Conte last year after the Italian left Inter Milan, but the Premier League giant did not appoint him.

However, Conte eventually joined Tottenham Hotspur.

“I know a lot of people say he was the only man available, but this is Manchester United we’re talking about. Antonio Conte was available at one point. Why didn’t they go and get him? What about Mauricio Pochettino? You’re Manchester United, go and get the best man, not the only man.

“The whole thing just hasn’t been handled very well, I don’t think,” Downing said as quoted by Caught Offside. Dailypost

It’s blackmail, students never swore to oath of secrecy – Premiere Academy

The management of the Premiere Academy in Lugbe area of Abuja, on Sunday, faulted the claims by the Coalition of Gender Based Violence Responders that its students had sworn to an oath of secrecy on many issues, including the death of a 14-year-old SS1 student, Keren-Happuch Akpagher.

The institution also picked holes in the allegation that it was one of the schools engaged in sexual harassment, which culminated in Keren-Happuch’s death.

The acting Principal of the school, Chris Akinsowon, was responding to allegations by the leader of the coalition, Lemmy Ughegbe, during a press conference held in Abuja on Thursday and attended by Keren-Happuch’s mother, Vivien Akpagher.

Ughegbe had alleged that a preliminary report of the autopsy conducted on the deceased by the doctor appointed by the police, Dr Desmond Okonkwo of the Maitama General Hospital, revealed that she was raped.

The activist had challenged the school management to a media dialogue to discuss the alleged rape and death of Keren-Happuch and other cases of sexual molestation, which he claimed the organisation had the records of and which the school was allegedly covering up instead of handing paedophiles over to the police.

But Akinsowon said in the event that any form of sexual assault happened to the deceased in the school and leading to her death, the management would join hands with all relevant security agencies to prosecute such a person in line with the laws of the land.

He maintained that the autopsy result had yet to come out, stressing that it was part of the investigation the school insisted must be done, adding that Premiere Academy was earnestly awaiting the result.

“The autopsy result is not out yet. It is a part of the investigation process the school insists must be allowed to take its course. We earnestly await the result and plead that nothing should be said to pre-empt whatever the outcome may be,” he stated.

Speaking about the staff member of the school, who was allegedly sent on an indefinite suspension and later dismissed, Akinsowon said it was “based on careless talk with a student as part of our commitment to making the school safe for our students and earning the confidence of our parents.”

He described reports that the students had sworn to an oath of secrecy as very disturbing, stating, “How can secondary students take an oath of secrecy? This is nothing but blackmail and an attempt to divert the minds of the public from the truth.” Punch
