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.

“In addition, according to the contract, ten percent of further sales remain for them until the end of the transition period.

“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.

Voodoo new to me – Waldrum

Published

on

In the aftermath of the drama that ensued between Nigeria and Cameroon during the penultimate qualifying fixture for the 2024 Olympic games, Super Falcons coach, Randy Waldrum, says voodoo is strange to him.

There was drama at the start of the second half inside the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Monday after a Cameroonian player allegedly attempted to plant ‘voodoo’ inside the Falcons goal post.

Falcons’ goalkeeper, Chiamaka Nnadozie, was in fine form as she stopped every shot in her direction to prevent the Indomitable Lionesses from scoring.

However, in the closing minutes of the game, Cameroon sent Annie Enganemben on as they were about to launch a free kick into the Nigerian box with claims that the player was sent on to touch the net in a bid to give Cameroon a saving grace as they were running out of options, and had to resort to diabolical means.

In a video, the substitute, alongside another striker, were seen trying to run towards the Nigerian goal in an attempt to touch the net, but Asisat Oshoala took it upon herself to prevent that from happening. The drama led to the player being sent off after she hit Nnadozie in the process.

When asked by our reporter about the attempt by the Cameroonians to use voodoo during the game, Waldrum said, “Yes it is true.”

“I have never seen it before but our players wouldn’t let them in our goal to use it.”

The only goal of the two-legged tie came in the early minutes of the first half, with Esther Okoronkwo tapping home from close range after Jennifer Echegini’s clever footwork on the edge of the box.

Bayer Leverkusen star Victor Boniface has secured a nomination among the most skilful players in the ongoing 2023/24 Bundesliga campaign so far.

After his move from Union SG last July, the Super Eagles striker wasted no time making an impact under the guidance of manager Xabi Alonso.

Boniface’s initial burst in Germany was nothing short of impressive, netting ten goals in 16 league matches.

However, his promising run hit an abrupt halt due to a groin injury, forcing him to miss the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations held in Ivory Coast.

Despite his current injury setback, the striker’s noteworthy performances have not gone unnoticed.

The spotlight now shines on a particular display of individual brilliance during Leverkusen’s Bundesliga clash against RB Leipzig at the Bay Arena in August 2023.

In that game, Boniface executed a cunning feint, deceiving his marker into anticipating a right-footed shot, only to cleverly pass the ball with his left foot. Although he didn’t find the net, Leverkusen emerged victorious with a 3-2 scoreline.

Boniface shares the skills spotlight with four other notable players: Andrej Kramaric, Jadon Sancho, Felix Nmecha, and Xavi Simons.

To participate in the voting process, fans can visit the Bundesliga’s official website and select their choice among the nominated players.
