Panic as Super eagles player gets injury during their defeat to Algeria.

Published

French League giants Bordeaux have confirmed that Nigerian winger Samuel Kalu suffered a hamstring injury while on international duty for his national team.

The 23-year-old only lasted 50 minutes in the Super Eagles 1-0 defeat to Algeria in a friendly game and was replaced with Moses Simon over the weekend. He was also missing from the team that played a 1-1 draw against the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia on Tuesday, October 13. The forward has already scored twice in six Ligue 1 appearances so far this campaign but will miss his side’s trip to Marseille this weekend. The club has now dropped a statement on that: “The Nigerian international winger was injured in the last game of the Super Eagles. Our player suffered a torn hamstring in his left thigh. His downtime will depend on the progress of the injury. Kalu also reiterated his commitment to his club despite attempts from Turkish Super Lig club Fenerbahce during the transfer window, he told AOI. “There is really nothing much to say because they [Fenerbahce] first gave an offer of a loan deal but Bordeaux rejected it, saying I was an important player to the club and they can’t allow me to go on loan again. “They came again with another offer for a loan and an option to buy at the end of the season but the club is yet to reply to them.

“I’m however ready to give my best to the club; if I will remain here I am 100% committed and won’t force a move away as it remains with the club to decide that.”

Bruno Fernandes’s penalty hands United a first home win in a match of two penalties

Published

By

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer concedes his side were ‘lucky’ that West Brom had a penalty decision overturned in their 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

 

After a goalless first 45 minutes, Slaven Bilic’s side were awarded a spot-kick early in the second half after referee David Coote ruled that Bruno Fernandes had fouled Conor Gallagher in the box.

 

VAR however intervened with the decision eventually changed after Coote reviewed the incident on the sideline. Replays suggested Fernandes did make some contact with the ball before the man.

 

The Red Devils made the most of the call and were themselves awarded a penalty 10 minutes later which Fernandes tucked away at the second time of asking after his first attempt was saved only for goalkeeper Sam Johnstone to be caught coming of his line.

 

Solskjaer, referencing Aston Villa’s similarly overturned last-minute spot-kick in their 2-1 home defeat to Brighton earlier on Saturday, told BT Sport he thought both penalties should have been awarded.

 

He said: “I looked at the penalty this afternoon at Villa-Brighton, and there’s contact on the ball and the man. In my head, it might be a penalty, and there as well.

 

With this victory, United see themselves in the top half of the table for the first time this seasin with 13 points from 9 games at 8th position.

 

While for West Brom, they remain in the bottom three with only 3 points.

 

United will host Istanbul Basaksehir midweek, while also to play away to Southampton on Sunday.
