FA looking into Jose Mourinho’s comments about referee Anthony Taylor

him

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho’s comments about the appointment of referee Anthony Taylor for the Red Devils’ match at Liverpool on Monday are to be looked at by the Football Association.

The Portuguese was asked about Manchester-based Taylor – he is registered with the Cheshire FA – being given the game after Keith Hackett, former head of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited body, criticised the move.

Hackett said he felt it placed undue pressure on the official.

“I think Mr Taylor is a very good referee but I think somebody with intention is putting such a pressure on him that I feel that it will be difficult for him to have a very good performance,” Mourinho said.

Press Association Sport understands the FA’s governance team will study those comments and may subsequently wish to contact the United boss for his observations.

New rules were introduced in 2009 in an attempt to crack down on pre-match comments about officials which could be viewed as intimidatory or influential.

In its statement at the time the FA said: “Clubs are being advised that any media comments by managers, players or any other club officials relating to appointed match officials prior to a fixture will no longer be allowed – such pre-match comments will be deemed improper and dealt with accordingly.”

Ugandan Pastor tells church members to burn the Bible, says it is misleading them (Photos)

A Ugandan pastor of House of Prayer ministries, Aloysius Bugingo allegedly gathered all his church members Bibles on Easter Monday and burned them because he thinks it’s misleading them.

According to the report by Zambezi Reporters,  he says that Bibles like the King James version and the New Testament, have been tampered with and some verses omitted.

Pastor Bugingo said that the lines talking about the Fasting and Lent, in general, were erased and that the word “ Holy Ghost ” appears a whopping 99 times yet the word “Holy Spirit” appears only seven times.

He therefore, requested members of his congregation to collect all the said Bible versions and set them ablaze.

CBN to Sustain Forex Intervention, Releases Fresh $418m

The apex bank of Nigeria has moved to boost the value of the naira in the local market by pumping more forex into the economy.
The Central Bank of Nigeria on Sunday vowed to sustain its intervention in the foreign exchange market to ensure liquidity in that segment of the financial sector.
The Acting Director, Corporate Communications, CBN, Mr. Isaac Okorafor, stated this in a statement issued in Abuja.
He said as part of its determination to make forex available to genuine users, the apex bank on Friday auctioned the sum of $418m at the retail segment at the rate of N310 to a dollar.
He gave the sectors of the economy that benefitted from the intervention as aviation, agriculture, petroleum and raw materials/machineries.
The statement  read in part, “In its avowed determination to ensure ample supply of foreign exchange liquidity in the market, the Central Bank of Nigeria on Friday, 7th of April, 2017 auctioned the sum of $418m at a marginal rate of N310/$.
 
“This was in addition to the sum of $350m sold as wholesale auction during the week. In the weeks ahead, the CBN will sustain its intervention through the sale of foreign exchange to all segments of the market.”
The statement said the CBN would sell short-tenured forwards of seven-day to 30-day maturity to meet the demand of manufacturers and all other foreign exchange users.
The apex bank said the injection of foreign exchange into the market should reassure all users of its determination to continue to meet all legitimate forex demand in the market.
It added that the intervention was part of measures to achieve exchange rate stability in the financial market.
