|Sports / Juventus Sign 32-year Old Striker And Place Him In Under 23 Squad by DeRossii: 4:56pm On Sep 17, 2020|
32-year old Andrea Brighenti is anything but a signing for the future at Juventus, yet the new arrival is to play with the club's Under 23 side in Serie C.
The Bianconeri's secondary side have signed the striker from Serie B outfit Monza, beating off interest from Palermo and Como.
The vast majority of his teammates will be nine years younger than him at the very minimum so there is a bit of "How do you do fellow kids?" about it - but the Under 23 team are allowed a select few over-age players so it is all legitimate.
They already have two 30-year-olds in goalkeeper Timothy Nocci and captain Raffaele Alcibiade in their squad, as well as Stefano Gori and Dario del Fabro, aged 24 and 25 respectively.

A year ago, Real Madrid dressed in purple while on Saturday they were in all white, but everything else looks to be the same from last year's picture before the initial whistle.
The position of each of the eleven players is practically the same.
Each player posed a year later in the same position and in the same way.
Can you spot the difference?

|Sports / Robinho Responds To Being Sentenced To Nine Years In Prison by DeRossii: 2:51pm On Nov 24, 2017|
Former Manchester City, Real Madrid and AC Milan forward Robinho has responded today to being sentenced to nine years in prison for sexual assault.
The news broke yesterday afternoon that the Brazilian had been given the hefty sentence and details started to emerge of what happened.
The offence came in January 2013 with the act coming against a young Albanian woman.
Robinho and five other men were accused of sexual assault towards the woman but Robinho has now defended himself.
Posting a picture stating ‘CLARIFICATION NOTE’ in bold letters, the caption read as follows:
“Relating to events of a few years ago, we would like to clarify that he already defended himself from the accusations, saying he had no involvement with the episode.”
“All legal steps are already being taken regarding this decision in the first instance.”
Whether this will have any effect on his sentence is yet to be seen, but reports did state the trial will go through an appeals stage.
That means that Robinho could still escape jail time even after the reports that have emerged.
Football Italia claims that:
“Although this is a guilty verdict and a nine-year prison sentence awarded, the Italian justice system includes several levels of appeal."
“Because of that, the verdict is effectively put on hold until the appeals process is completed and no sentence will be enforced until then.”
Time will tell if Robinho is truly found guilty or not.

“As the legal battle comes to an end with the Supreme Court’s declaration, I’m exceedingly happy today that in the course of this struggle, I never resorted to self-help nor encouraged my supporters to indulge in any form of violence either in my State or elsewhere.
“May I especially thank my teeming supporters for standing by me all through this journey and may I also use this golden opportunity to congratulate His Excellency, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, governor of Abia State and urge all Abians to join hands in supporting the Governor in order to move our dear state forward.”

Full letter below
May 19, 2017
Dr. Sampson Uche Ogar, OON.
My dear brother,
RE: CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE
I write to personally acknowledge the message of congratulations sent to us by your good self following the final judicial imprimatur given to my mandate by the Supreme Court of Nigeria on Friday, May 12, 2017 as the lawfully nominated and duly elected Governor of Abia State.
First, I wish to draw your attention to the fact that in my administration, the title HIS EXCELLENCY, as used in your letter is not applicable. This is a policy statement that has been in place since my inauguration, please.
As was widely reported in the media, as soon as the Supreme Court delivered their judgment, I immediately issued a statement wherein I urged all parties to sheath their swords and put the interest of our dear fledging state above narrow and personal political interests.
I also made it clear that I have, in the interest of our dear state, put the episode of the long drawn litigation behind me and extended warm invitations to everyone, irrespective of differences in political ideologies, to join hands with me to move the state forward.
I note with delight that you have accepted that invitation.
Please recall that in my two meetings with you before this time, I clearly made the point that at this stage of our development, our state needs all her citizens to join hands together and contribute to her growth and development.
Please rest assured of my commitment to work with everyone on this new path of progress and unity.
Kindly accept, Dear Dr. Ogar, my continued assurances of the highest consideration.
Yours in the service of our state,
Okezie Victor Ikpeazu, Phd
Governor of Abia State
