According to a Serbian publication, sportal.blic, newly promoted La Liga club side, Almeria, are set to pay the sum of €500,000 to Partizan Belgrade after Nigeria international Sadiq Umar made his first LaLiga appearance for the club, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

The Super Eagles player was in action for the Rojiblancos on Sunday as they lost 2-1 to Real Madrid in their first league game of the 2022/23 season.

Umar joined Almeria in the summer of 2020 for €9m plus add-ons.

The 25-year-old had since become an integral part of the club and has seen his value rise to €18m – double of what the Spanish club paid for him when he joined two years ago.

Sadiq played 71 minutes, leaving the pitch after making two attempts, one on target, and a 70 per cent pass accuracy after completing seven of his 10 passes.

And according to the publication, Partizan will earn €500,000 as part of the deal that brought the player to Spain.

“Last Sunday, in the first round, for example, Almeria, for which Sadiq is now playing, and Real Madrid met.

“It was the 75th match in Almeria in which the Nigerian played no less than half time, thereby activating the second bonus agreed between the Spanish club and the club from Humska.

“Originally, the black and whites earned €3,000,000, when Almeria was placed in Primera, and yesterday brought them another €500,000.

“So far, Partizan has earned €9,500,000 from Sadiq. The amount of €5,500,000 was paid to them during the transfer of the Nigerian to the Spanish club, in the name of compensation from the sale of 50 percent of the economic rights to the player, but it turned out that the bonuses almost doubled the earnings.”

Sadiq has been linked with a move to Villarreal with reports stating that a fee of €30m has been agreed with the Yellow Submarines.

Olise’s late strike gets Palace point against United

Published

on

Michael Olise has helped Crystal Palace get a point against Manchester United in their 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park Stadium on Wednesday night.

The midfielder’s late strike in extra-time, 91′, levelled the game against United, who had controlled the lead since the 43rd minute of the first half after Bruno Fernandes’ fine finish put the Red Devils ahead just before the break.

A relentless Olise scored from a free kick with a left-footed shot to the top right corner. The equalising goal saw United’s dream of replacing defending EPL champions City in the second place on the league table, fade away, as they remain third with 39 points, having played a game more than City.

Crystal Palace remains in 12th place with 23 points.

Atletico Madrid head coach speaks on leaving Atletico Madrid

Published

on

Atletico Madrid head coach, Diego Simeone, has insisted that nobody has personally told him to leave the club.

Rumours have persisted that Simeone, 52, could be set to end this 11-year stay at Atletico Madrid at the end of the season.

However, the Argentine has now stated that no one at the club has asked him to quit the La Liga giants.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Atletico Madrid’s Copa del Rey tie with Levante on Wednesday night, Simeone said when asked about reports suggesting he would leave the club at the end of the season: “No one has personally asked me to leave.”

However, having already been eliminated from UEFA Champions League and sitting 13 points behind leaders Barcelona in the La Liga table, the Copa del Rey is Atletico Madrid’s last realistic opportunity for a trophy this season.

It has been a disappointing campaign for Simeone’s side, as they sit fourth in the league.

Simeone added, “The boys are enthusiastic to reverse this situation that we have experienced since the break and prior to the World Cup. It’s been a regular to a bad season. For me, there is growth after the break, hopefully, we will continue in that line.”
