Stating this in a signed letter by its Secretary-General, Jerome Valcke, the FIFA Emergency Committee “decided that should there still be persons claiming to be elected and occupying the offices on Monday, 8 September, 2014 at 8am Swiss time, the NFF will automatically be suspended with immediate effect until the said persons vacate the premises of the NFF and the General Secretary is able to come back and carry out his work without interference”.

His club, JS Kabylie, published a statement yesterday on its website saying his death will be investigated.
‘The Ministry of Interior and Local Government, speaking through minister Tayeb Belaiz, has given an instruction to open an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Albert Ebosse.” The statement read

So sad! May his soul rest in peace…amen.
Erstwhile Nigeria Super Eagle’s Coach, Stephen Keshi has made a sensational claim that he is out of job not because he is out of demand but for his decision to wait on a possible contract renewal with Nigeria.
The Big Boss told BBC Sports that as much as seven countries have approached him in the last two months he has only kept them away with the hope of staying on as the Super Eagles Coach.
“I have had about seven countries approach me in the last two months but I kept them all away,” Coach Keshi was quoted as saying.
The former Togo and Mali Coach continued “I love my country and I am aware of the dream our fans had of me taking this team to the next level.
Samuel Eto’o has opted to join Liverpool and is undergoing a medical on Friday ahead of signing a one-year deal, Goal understands.
Everton’s late interest in the 33-year-old had threatened to derail Liverpool’s move, with Roberto Martinez’s side ready to offer a two-year contract, but the striker is excited by the prospect of working under Brendan Rodgers.
The Cameroon international’s medical is taking place outside of the UK, while the deal could be finalised before Liverpool face Manchester City on Monday evening.
Eto’o is available on a free transfer having left Chelsea at the end of last season and had held talks with Ajax earlier this summer before the Dutch club pulled out of negotiations.

Germany World Cup-winning goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, the Netherlands talisman, Arjen Robben, and reigning Fifa World Player of the Year, Cristiano Ronaldo, have been named on the final three man shortlist for Uefa’s Best Player in Europe award for 2013/14.
The prize was inaugurated in 2011 by Europe football’s ruling body, Uefa. A jury made up of journalists from the 54 member associations of UEFA will vote to decide the winner.
Bayern Munich’s Franck Ribery claimed the prize last season.
Neuer put up an outstanding performance for Germany at this summer World Cup and eventually claimed the Best Goalkeeper Award (the golden gloves). The goal-tender alongside Robben were part of Bayern Munich’s squad that claimed a domestic league and cup double last season.

Information reaching us has it that Nigeria has moved up by one spot in the FIFA World Rankings to occupy the 33rd position in the August month, according to the rankings released on Thursday.
In the rankings table posted on the world football governing body’s website, Nigeria has 673 points in August, as opposed to the 660 points it garnered in the July ranking.
Nigeria’s ranking was however an improvement, in a month which witnessed a lull in footballing activities in many parts of the world.
But in spite of the slight move, Nigeria remains the third-placed team in Africa behind Algeria and Cote D’Ivoire which have 880 and 840 points respectively.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Mikel, who managed just 11 Premier League starts for the Blues as he found surplus to requirement after the arrival of Nemanja Matic in January, has been offered to several of big clubs for no more than £4.7 million.

With the arrival of Cesc Fabregas at the West London outfit last month to add further competition in the centre of the park, with a departure increasingly likely for the 27-year-old.
FC Barcelona made the club’s record signing when they fulfilled the buyout clause in Luis Suarez’s contract despite a four-month ban hanging over the footballer’s career. While many believe the trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and the new guy would devastate any defence in Europe and bring the Catalan club back to winning ways, I doubt if this will happen.
The three players are fantastic and they can influence the outcome of any match with mesmerising skills and eye for goal, but not many great players have been successful playing alongside Messi at Barcelona.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic cost Barcelona €69.5 million but he could not replicate his superb form that has made him very important at Ajax, Juventus and Inter Milan. He even claimed the club manager had not spoken to him for 5 months when he played his last game for Barcelona on August 25.
