‘Fair play’: Michael Owen reacts to Chelsea FC’s Champions League final win.

Michael Owen took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on Chelsea FC’s 1-0 win over Man City in the Champions League

Michael Owen took to social media to praise Chelsea FC for their impressive performance after they claimed a 1-0 win over Manchester City to win their second Champions League trophy.
Kai Havertz scored the decisive goal for the Blues in the 42nd minute of the final in Porto after he was slid through by Mason Mount and duly rounded Ederson to tap home into an empty net.

Chelsea FC defended solidly throughout the game and managed to limit Manchester City to just one shot on target in Portugal as the Blues denied the Citizens their first ever Champions League trophy.

The south west London side triumphed despite Manchester City enjoying 60 per cent of the posession.

Former Liverpool FC and Manchester United star was tipping Manchester City to win the game beforehand, but he paid credit to Chelsea FC for their impressive triumph after the final whistle.

Posting on Twitter after the final whistle, Owen wrote: “Huge blow to Pep Guardiola and the @ManCity owners tonight but fair play to @ChelseaFC who deserved their win despite City having better players in almost all positions.

“That’s why we love the sport and all its unpredictability.”

Meanwhile, former Chelsea FC midfielder Joe Cole was thrilled to see his old club win the Champions League for the first time since their triumph back in 2012.

“It’s hard for me because I’m so emotionally engaged,” Cole said on BT Sport after the final whistle. “To sit where we’re sat amongst the fans…

“Every man, from [Edouard] Mendy through to the final man in the squad, for me is a hero.

“That was an unbelievable performance. Just the emotion coming over me now… I’m just so happy.

“All these boys are heroes to me now. My son is here and they’ve given him the best day of his life.”

World Cup 2022 Qualifiers: Ghana To Miss Jordan Ayew And Amartey Against South Africa

World Cup 2022 Qualifiers: Ghana To Miss Jordan Ayew And Amartey Against South Africa

The Black Stars are set to do without some first team players for their upcoming back-to-back games against Ethiopia and South Africa.

Premier League clubs have decided against releasing players for September’s round of World Cup qualifiers which are due to take place in Covid-19 red-listed countries, ruling Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew, Leicester City centre-back Daniel Amartey and Brentford winger Tariqe Fosu out of Ghana’s showdown away against South Africa.

 

According to a statement by the FA, nearly 60 players from 19 clubs have been affected by the decision.

 

South Africa, who are on the UK’s coronavirus red list, are set to host Ghana for a Group G matchday two fixture in Johannesburg on September 6.

“Premier League clubs have today reluctantly but unanimously decided not to release players for international matches played in red-list countries next month,” the FA announced on their official website on Tuesday.

“The clubs’ decision, which is strongly supported by the Premier League, will apply to nearly 60 players from 19 Premier League clubs who are due to travel to 26 red-list countries in the September international window.

“This follows Fifa’s current position not to extend its temporary release exception for players required to quarantine on their return from international duty.

“Extensive discussions have taken place with both The FA and the Government to find a solution, but due to ongoing public health concerns relating to incoming travellers from red-list countries, no exemption has been granted

Ghana are set to open their World Cup qualifiers with a home clash with Ethiopia on September 3 before making the trip to South Africa.
Earlier this month, Black Stars coach CK Akonnor unveiled a provisional list of 30 players for the uncoming double-header, the roster including Ayew, Amartey and Fosu.

UTAG is Setting A Bad Precedent For Disobeying Court Injunction – Kabila

UTAG is Setting A Bad Precedent For Disobeying Court Injunction – Kabila

Former Acting General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), James Kwabena Bomfeh, has slammed the UTAG executives for not obeying the injunction order by a High Court regarding their industrial action.

UTAG has refused to call off their strike despite calls on them to return to work.

The National Labour Commission, in an attempt to compel them to resume work, secured an injunction from an Accra High Court but the University lecturers Association has defied the court ruling.

According to UTAG President, Prof. Charles Marfo, the injunction has rather worsened the case for the Labour Commission.

“We were almost reaching a consensus until the government’s court issue arose. Now, a whole new ballgame has started because we’re also asking our lawyers to go to court . . . We were getting there. We were pushing; now this argument I’m making is lost,” he said.

Addressing the issue during Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”, James Kwabena Bomfeh, popularly called Kabila, bemoaned the UTAG response to the Labour Commission’s injunction.

According to him, UTAG somehow disrespecting the injunction must be condemned in no uncertain terms stressing ”if care is not taken and we allow for positive defiance against a court ruling, we will be setting a certain bad precedent”.
