The couple tied the knot in June 2021 in Kano at a quiet ceremony that was attended by a couple of Super Eagles stars and Maniru Dan Iya, deputy governor of Sokoto state.

Naja’atu has featured in a number of Kannywood movies including ‘Murjanatu’, ‘Auren Gaja’, ‘Hakkin Rai’, and ‘Harira’, among others.

The Athletic Club Omonoia Nicosia player, on the other hand, is currently on national assignment with the Super Eagles as they battle Ghana in a doubleheader fixture that will determine which nation will book the ticket to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The Eagles arrived in Kumasi for the first leg of the playoff round against Ghana, which is billed for the Baba Yara Stadium at 8:30pm on Friday.

The return leg will be played at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, in Abuja on Tuesday.

Published

Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag has said that Cristiano Ronaldo is not happy at Old Trafford.

According to him, the Portugal international is ‘p****d off’ at being left on the bench against Manchester City at the weekend and is unhappy with his playing time under the Dutch coach.

Ronaldo was kept on the bench for the entire duration of their 6-3 defeat at the Etihad on Sunday.

Ronaldo has started just one Premier League match so far this season, which was the 4-0 defeat at Brentford.

“I can’t see that relation, that he is not coming on when we are 4-0 down, I did not bring him on out of respect,” Ten Hag told the press ahead of Thursday’s Europa League fixture.

“It has nothing to do with the future or January. I don’t see him as unhappy. He is happy, training well and enjoying.

“He’s not happy that he didn’t play Sunday, don’t get me wrong, but the question was about his mood in training, where he’s happy.

“Of course, he wants to play and he’s p***** off when he’s not playing.”

UCL: Michael Owen names player who helped Liverpool beat Rangers

Published

on

Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, has identified midfielder, Jordan Henderson as the player who helped the Reds defeat Rangers in Tuesday’s Champions League tie.

Owen hailed Henderson as the ‘key’ player during Liverpool’s clash with Rangers, adding that he was protecting right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold during the encounter at Anfield.

Recall that Alexander-Arnold’s name has hardly been out of the headlines in recent weeks as the defender’s place in England’s 2022 FIFA World Cup picture looks in doubt.

But the 23-year-old put that all to one side to open the scoring for Liverpool in their 2-0 victory against the Scottish giants. Mohammed Salah also scored a penalty.

“I thought Jordan Henderson was key today,” Owen told BT Sport after the game.

“You saw the shape he was playing in the first half, he was filling in for him every time he went forward. To have that insurance behind you when you’re going forward must be a great thing.

“He gets in forward positions and that means there’s a gap there, but when someone’s plugging it, it means he doesn’t have to worry about what’s behind him and that is key. If he’s got Jordan Henderson in the team, I think we will see a different player,” he added.

“What is nice to see is a team that can compete.

“Competing and for me, I always say it’s not because it’s Arsenal or any different team, when you pass Boxing Day and Christmas, it’s going to be different because you have the World Cup, but when you pass January and you’re still up there, competing for the title, then you’re a title contender.”
