I’m Here To Score Goals For Liverpool – Victor Moses

  Moments after completing his season-long loan move to Liverpool, Victor Moses outlined just exactly why he was so eager to make the switch to Anfield from Chelsea.

The 22-year-old forward will spend the 2013-14 campaign with the Reds having successfully passed a medical and agreed terms with the club at Melwood on Monday morning.Shortly afterwards, he explained why he felt joining Liverpool would represent a huge step in his career and explained what he’s hoping to achieve over the next 12 months.
Victor, welcome to Liverpool Football Club. What does it mean to you to have made this move?
First and foremost, I’m delighted to have made the loan from Chelsea to a big club like Liverpool. The most important thing is for me to be professional about it and I’m here to do a job for the club. The target is to get into the top four and for the club to compete in the Champions League – and I’m delighted to be here.
Fans will know you well from having watched you in the Premier League, but in your opinion what can you bring to this football club?
As I said, this is a massive club and I’ve come in to try and help my new teammates and the team. The players have been doing great – I went to watch them play on Sunday and the atmosphere was incredible. The fans were great and seeing them beat Manchester United was great for me coming into the club. They’ve won three out of three, have nine points and are at the top, so we just want to keep the momentum going.
Watching the game on Sunday and seeing Liverpool beat Manchester United, did that further reassure you that you were making the right move?
It’s definitely the right move – this is a massive club with all the history. The club has come a long way and it’s great to be here and to be playing for Liverpool. I’m delighted to be here and I just want to enjoy my football.
I know you’ll have had experience of playing at Anfield as an opposition player, but what do you think it’ll be like to play in front of that crowd as a Liverpool player?
The atmosphere was incredible against Manchester United and the fans were great. They were singing right from the start until the end. It’ll be proud for me to play out on the pitch. I want to do well for the club, score goals and help the team.
What kind of player do you see yourself as?
I’ll just try to work hard, help the team and try to score and create goals.
Why do you feel a loan move is the right thing for you at this stage of your career?
As a young footballer coming up, I just want to play games. Not playing games can really damage your career. Liverpool is a massive club and I just want to enjoy my football out on the pitch and try to help my teammates.
What has Brendan Rodgers said to you about where and how you’ll fit into his plans this season?
I spoke to him on Sunday. He’s a great manager and he’s done fantastically well here helping the lads. When I spoke to him, he told me what I’m going to be doing here. I was really pleased with that and I’m looking forward to working with him. He’s been a great manager at whatever club he’s been at – and he’s came here and proven that. Your move to Chelsea was a big move for you.
What did you learn throughout that period?
The move to Chelsea was a massive step for me. I just wanted to go there, express myself and enjoy my football. Being at Chelsea was one of the best times for me, but coming to Liverpool is another step for me.
You’ll know Daniel Sturridge from your time at Chelsea – did you speak to him at all about making this move?
Yes, I spoke to Studge and he wanted me to come here. He said I’d love it here, but he didn’t need to say much. The next morning, I had a word with my agent and told him it could be the right move for me. As I’ve said, it’s a massive club with great history. The club is doing well, so I wanted to come here and enjoy my football. It’s been great – I’ve been here since yesterday and everyone has been looking after me. Daniel has made an incredible impact since joining the club
I guess you’d like to make a similar impact yourself… Daniel is a great player and at the moment is probably the best striker in the Premier League – he’s scoring goals, he’s got good vision and enjoys his football out on the pitch. That’s the most important as a player – to enjoy yourself. Daniel’s certainly doing that at the moment. I just want to come here, help my teammates however I can to try and get into the top four, and get as many games as I can at the same time.
Talking of your new teammates, how much are you looking forward to linking up with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez?
I’m definitely looking forward to it. I watched a few matches before I came here and they’ve done fantastically well. I can’t wait to start training with them and gel into the team and get to know everyone.
Do you think the style of football Brendan Rodgers has implemented here will suit you?
Yes, definitely. The manager has done very well and the formation and players here will help me and I just want to gel in, get to know the players and play with them. There are a lot of quality players here – they’re winning games and creating chances. It’s a massive thing for me to be here.

Drama In Presidential Villa As Kwankwaso Rejects Jonathan

There was a mild political drama at Nigeria’s Presidential Villa on Sunday night when Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State rejected the request of President Goodluck Jonathan to stand beside him as Tony Anenih, the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the People’s Democratic Party, read a communiqué at the end of their “peace” meeting.

Mr. Kwankwaso was the spokesman of a group of PDP governors who last Saturday walked out of the venue of the party’s mini-convention.
He was at Aso Rock Villa to participate in a meeting called by Mr. Jonathan to iron out differences between the president’s faction of the party and a splinter group of governors and other party members who staged the dramatic walkout.
At the end of the peace meeting, which was attended by 16 governors, Mr. Anenih was mandated to speak with reporters as Mr. Jonathan and his deputy, Namadi Sambo, were reduced to spectators. A presidential source revealed that President Jonathan had beckoned on Kwankwaso to stand beside him, but the Kano State governor refused. “When Mr. President beckoned to Alhaji Kwankwaso to stand by his side as Chief Anenih read out the communiqué, the governor raised his finger and shook it several times. He then headed to the side of Chief Anenih,” said the source. He added that Mr. Jonathan, though clearly miffed, flashed a pained smile.
It wass learnt that Mr. Jonathan first met behind closed doors with former President Olusegun Obasanjo for close to two hours in the private residence of the president, and then met with 16 PDP governors, including four of the group that walked away from the mini-convention. The splinter group, led by former Vice President Abubakar Atiku, subsequently met at the Musa Yar’Adua Convention Center in Abuja and announced the formation of the “New PDP.” The rebellious governors include Babangida Aliyu of Niger State, Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State, Murtala Nyako of Adamawa, and Abdulfatai Ahmed of Kwara State.
Mr. Anenih read the communiqué flanked by President Jonathan on the right and Governor Kwankwaso on the left, with other governors behind them. The chairman of the fractious party’s board of trustees stated that “the leadership of the party and the PDP governors met today to discuss the incident that occurred during the PDP special convention on the 31st of August 2013, whereby some state delegations walked out of the convention ground to announce a faction of the party.” He added: “The meeting was smooth and encouraging and the discussions will continue on Tuesday with all the aggrieved governors in attendance.”

Rivers State Police on Monday in Port Harcourt declared the ADC to Gov. Chibuike Amaechi, ASP Seimeikumo Debewari, a deserter from the force.
This was made known in a statement issued by the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Administration, Mr Augustine Sanomi. He said that Debewari had ceased to be the ADC to the governor with immediate effect.
According to Sanomi, the officer ignored all lawful directives to see the state commissioner of police and the Inspector-General of Police since July 10 over his role in the fracas at the state House of Assembly and his whereabout is currently unknown to the police.
“The commissioner of police acted on the Police Act and the Regulation Cap of the Federation of Nigeria 1990,’’ he said. Sanomi also said the Inspector-General of Police had approved the desertion of Debewari from the force.
Mr Frank Mba, (CSP), Nigeria Police Public Relations Officer says if a police officer leaves his duty post for 21 consecutive days, without permission, police act and regulation authorise the force to declare the officer a deserter.
According to Mba, “being a deserter is an offence because the officer involved can be arrested without a warrant of arrest’’. Mba also said that it was within the purview of a state commissioner of police to declare an officer a deserter in the force if he committed the offence.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has admitted that he was afraid that he had sustained broken bones during his recent injury woes.

The Argentine has conceded that he had no idea what his recent injury was at first and has insisted that no one lied over the true nature of the knock
The Argentine was forced to miss the recent win over Malaga due to a knock picked up in the first leg of the Spanish Supercopa against Atletico.

However, he returned soon after and has stressed that the club did not hide anything about the nature of the injury.

“It was nothing more than a knock,” he is quoted as saying by Marca.

“I couldn’t see what it was properly in the picture, whether it was broken or not. Luckily it was just a knock. Many things have been said.

“I’ve heard that the club and I were hiding things. I did not hide anything. I’m coming back from an injury, it was tough because I relapsed and that made me more careful and recover better.”

Messi missed a penalty in the return leg against Atletico as Barca edged an away goals victory to claim the trophy and the 26-year-old has voiced his delight at overcoming a tough team.

“I’m happy to have won the title,” he continued.

“We played against a team who made things very difficult, who are closed off and do well on the counter, leaving no space. The truth was that it was a tough tie.”

Barcelona travel to Valencia on Sunday, with kick-off scheduled for 21:00CET.

ABORTION LEGALIZATION: Okorocha At War With Catholic Bishop

photoThe  Imo State Government and the Catholic Archdiocese of Owerri are now on warpath  following the legalization of abortion in the state.  

Consequently, the Archbishop of the Diocese, Most Rev. Dr. Anthony Obinna has demanded that the two obnoxious law containing the anti-life legislation said to have been signed into law by both Governor Rochas Okorocha and his predecessor Chief Achike Udenwa in 2012 and 2007 respectively be repealed.
Addressing newsmen in Owerri, on the forthcoming 2013 Odenigbo Lecture of the Diocese, Dr. Obinna regretted that in spite of the public outcry and pleas to the State House of Assembly not to pass the evil law legalizing abortion in 2010, Governor Okorocha quietly signed the bill as Imo State Law No 12 which he said contains the obnoxious lethal legislation on the 29th of May 2012 and thus coinciding with Nigeria’s Democracy Day.
The law, the bishop lamented, now threatens many conceived unborn children in the state with death.
The Catholic prelate also slammed ex-Governor Achike Udenwa for equally signing on 25th May 2007 “the gender and Equal Opportunity Law 2007 No 7” which he said, equally legalized abortion without considering the right of the unborn child.
“Since abortion is a murder of the helpless child, we as a God-fearing people in Imo State cannot stand by and allow this law to rampage our society in the name of  Women’s Reproductive and Gender Rights,” he warned.
While calling for the immediate repealing of the two abortion laws in the state, the Archbishop said that  although the church will not be mired in the nation’s murky waters of partisan politics, it will continue to demonstrate interest in the nation’s democratic process for the common good of the  people.
However, most people in the state have expressed the fear that the law did not only legalize abortion and prostitution  but may have also legalized the trafficking in human embryo as section 38(h)  and (I)of the legislation  seem to suggest.
The Catholic Medical Practitioners who were the first to speak vehemently against the law slammed the state legislators for passing such an obnoxious and inhuman law which has not only given license for promiscuity but has inadvertently sanctioned murder of unborn babies in the state, as well as encourages the trafficking of ovarian eggs in the state.
According to Dr Philip Njamanze, president of the association, considering the contents of the law as passed by the state legislators implies that a woman is entitled to have an abortion even at the ninth month no matter how she conceived it.
He noted that the section which gives the right to every woman to take decisions about her health needs and requirements implies that abortion has been legalized and operational in the state, irrespective of how the pregnancy was conceived.
