Ex-Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has been given condition to return to Lille’s first team.

Lille manager Christophe Galtier, said the Nigerian must step up his work rate and return to full form in order to be reintegrated into the main team.

Asked about the player’s form the manager said, ‘’It’s a reflection I had and I still have.”

“He has not played for a year at this level. He is still handicapped in relation to his injury (knee) and many things he cannot do,’’ Galtier told reporters.

Enyeama has only played two matches for the reserve team of Lille and his last appearance was on March 24 against Viry Châtillon.

In a bid to step up his fitness, Enyeama requested that he should play matches for the reserve team, which competes in the National 2, only at home.

However, the Red Devils said Herrera was, “mortified” following suggestions that he spat at City’s crest on purpose.

A Manchester United spokesperson said, “Ander has seen the footage of the incident and is mortified at any suggestion that his actions were deliberate.

“It was entirely accidental and there was no intent whatsoever.”

LaLiga: Zidane reveals why Ronaldo was substituted in Madrid’s 1-1 draw with Atletico

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has stated why he substituted Cristiano Ronaldo, during Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo put his side ahead early in the second half, but was hauled off just after the hour mark.

Atleti forward, Antoine Griezmann had equalized for Diego Simeone’s side before Ronaldo was substituted and the Portugal captain looked far from happy as he made his way to the bench.

The substitution also shocked supporters at the Bernabeu, but Zidane insisted his star man needed a break.

He said, “Cristiano is Cristiano, he has been this player all his life, scoring 50 goals a season.

“It is true that there is nobody else who does that. But others can score, have done recently, and we must think about the positives.

“It’s better to have Cristiano with us. It was just [to rest]. We have many games, that’s it. ‘Sometimes he needs to rest.

“These days he needs that. He feels better every day, you can see it.’’

The goal against Atletico was Ronaldo’s 605th career goal and his 20th strike in ten games.

LaLiga: Real Madrid to replace Zidane with Klopp

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, is attracting interest from Real Madrid.

According to The Sun, the club want him if they sack Zinedine Zidane at the end of this season.

Zidane is expected to remain at the club if he wins the Champions League, but the club’s poor league form has put his position under threat.

Klopp has become a target for the LaLiga giants, following his success with Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool in the European competition.

The Liverpool boss could still have a say in whether Madrid will retain the Champions League if both sides progress to the semi-finals.

Bayern Munich have also been linked with Klopp, but reports in Germany say Madrid hold the most interest.

Chelsea are now caught up in a race with Arsenal to finish fifth, after they were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

Antonio Conte’s men needed a win to keep their faint hopes of finishing in the top four alive.

They took the lead nine minutes before the interval, after Cesar Azpilicueta found space at the back post to make it 1-0.

However, the Blues failed to extend their lead and allowed Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez level the game in the 73rd minute.

Chelsea now have 57 points, three more than Arsenal who beat Southampton 3-2 in the earlier game, with five fixtures left.

They are also 10 points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who occupy the final Champions League spot.

Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, has revealed Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be out for at least two weeks with knee ligament damage.

Mkhitaryan was injured in Thursday’s 4-1 Europa League quarterfinal first-leg win over CSKA Moscow and a scan on Friday confirmed fears he will face a spell on the sidelines.

“Mkhitaryan has medial knee ligament damage,” Wenger said after Sunday’s 3-2 win over Southampton.

“He will miss these games for sure. He could still play at the end of the season.”

This means the Armenia midfielder will miss Arsenal’s next three matches against CSKA on Thursday, Newcastle on Sunday and West Ham the following weekend.

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has said that their 1-1 draw with West Ham on Sunday, summed up their disappointing campaign.

Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez scored 17 minutes to full time, to cancel out Cesar Azpilicueta’s first-half opener at Stamford Bridge.

The result further dented the defending Premier League champions’ top-four hopes, as they now sit 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

“I think this game describes very clearly our season.

“This game describes it very well. Many games where we put in a good performance, creating many chances to score, but we are not clinical. How many times have I said that we didn’t take the chances we created? A lot of times.

“And then, one chance for West Ham, we concede a goal. We are talking about improving, improving, improving. But today, we must win this game. We must win it. I’m very frustrated and I hope my players go home and stay frustrated because, in this way, we have the right mentality,” Conte told reporters afterwards.
