Nigeria striker, Michael Eneramo was in fine fettle on Wednesday as his goal helped Sivasspor beat 1490 Trabzon Karadenizspor 2-1 in a group stage game in the Turkish Cup.

Eneramo opened score in the 40th minute in very chilly condition.

The big striker’s effort just before the break was a finish of pure quality.

He received a cross from Polish striker, Kamil Grosicki from the right and with his back to goal, he swiveled before lashing an unstoppable effort.

AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani has claimed that Manchester City have quoted them €37 million for Mario Balotelli and that his side will consider a bid on Monday.

Balotelli's future at City is in doubt, as he has struggled for form this season while off-field problems have also put him in the spotlight.

City boss Roberto Mancini has insisted he has no desire to sell Balotelli, but it would appear the club have put a price on his head.

Quoted in Gazzetta dello Sport, Galliani said: “At the end of Friday, Manchester City still said €37 million. We will see on Monday. Under these conditions, he will remain at Manchester City.'’

AT a tender age a boy discovered his unrepentant love for soccer and also got an early revelation of his seemingly bad predicament. The legs for sure is the very most important part of body physique as far as active participation of the soccer game is concerned and for little Messi his legs were bad.

Nothing about the lad pointed to anything near the destiny he is embracing at the moment. For he was skinny, short and had bad legs. But for his father's love for game, the parents might have discouraged him from active play. 

PETER Odemwingie's late strike saw West Bromwich Albion fight back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at home to Aston Villa in an entertaining Midlands derby last  Saturday.

Odemwingie struck from close range in the 83rd minute after Chris Brunt had started to chip away at a two-goal lead that Villa established through superb first-half goals from Christian Benteke and Gabriel Agbonlahor.

Villa coach Paul Lambert was visibly annoyed by his side's capitulation.

FRANK Lampard is poised to accept Harry Redknapp's offer of a two-and-a-half year deal if he is snubbed by Chelsea again tomorrow.

Lampard would also be handed the captain's armband if he agrees to join his uncle at QPR next month. He has not made a final decision about his future, although he has accepted he will not get a new contract from the Blues when his current deal expires in June.

But the Redknapp offer to join in the January transfer window could look far more inviting tomorrow if Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez does not pick him in his starting XI for the Club World Cup Final against Corinthians.
