Arsenal ‘Still In Chase For Champions League Spot’

Hector Bellerin says Arsenal remain in the hunt for Champions League qualification after recovering from a slow restart following the coronavirus shutdown.
The Gunners lost their opening two matches as the Premier League returned following the three-month hiatus.
But a resounding 4-0 win over Norwich on Wednesday, including two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, followed victory against Southampton last week.
With Chelsea and Leicester losing on the same night and 10 points separating third-placed Leicester and Burnley in ninth, Bellerin believes Arsenal can still secure a return to the Champions League.
Arsenal is seventh, eight points off Chelsea, who occupy the fourth and final Champions League spot.
“For us, that has been the goal since the beginning of the season,” said the right-back. “And obviously coming back from lockdown that has always been our goal.
“It wasn’t the best of starts to our Premier League return, but we have been working really hard through the whole of quarantine — not just physically but tactically as well.”
If Arsenal is to achieve their ambition then the goals of Aubameyang will be a big factor.
His first effort was his 50th Premier League goal in just his 79th appearance in the competition.
“I think the stats speak for themselves,” Bellerin said.
“It is very hard nowadays to get a striker that can score that many goals in that many games. We are very happy to have him.” (AFP)

IN NIGERIA SYSTEM WE ARE NOT USED TO REMEMBERING GOOD WORK ONLY THE BAD

SORRY I DID NOT KNOW THE GOOD THINGS DONE BY MINIMAL. HOWEVER GOD BLESS HIM FOR THOSE GOOD WORK

But he has to wake up and stand firm for boxing because when his house is not in order ,it is the man of the house that people blame. eg. GCFR Buhari. Because NBF problem is exactly like Nigeria problem.

The minister told me that NBF is divided into 3 groups but In my investigation I find out,that there are even four groups fighting for the control of the game namely Minimal,Ayeni,Oldschool and omogege but it is our boxers, coaches and R&J that is suffering as the result of the fight

Now it is the duty of those interested group to use the case of inefficient and embezzlement of fund to fight their opponent to victory for the benefit of justice and accountability.
