Good morning, football fans

Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes there’s no life after “God” in France.

The ever-modest Swedish legend 41, claims Ligue 1 has become boring since his heavenly presence left PSG six years ago.

The former Juventus, Barcelona and Manchester United striker hopes to return in the new year after suffering an ACL injury in April.

And having played in all of Europe’s big leagues, he feels the French top-flight never recovered from him being spirited away from Paris.

The 121-cap star told the Canalplus TV station: “Since I left France, there is no longer any interesting subject.

“Why? Because you don’t have God.”

Franck Kessie’s agent has slammed rumours linking the midfielder with a move away from Barcelona as “fake news”.

The 25-year-old joined Barca on a free transfer in the summer.
But he has started just twice in La Liga since arriving at the Nou Camp.

Reports in Italy have even linked Kessie with a quick exit from Barcelona as soon as January, with former club AC Milan claimed to be keen, as well as Man Utd.

Now Kessie’s agent, George Atangana, has put those rumours to bed.
Newcastle are lining up a January swoop for Brazilian wonderkid Eguinaldo.

The winger’s agent has confirmed Toon are one of several clubs keen on a move this winter.

But Newcastle will have to meet Eguinaldo’s £26million release clause to get a deal over the line.

The Vasco ace, who stars in Brazil’s second tier, can play across the entire front three but is most at home on the left.

Eguinaldo, 18, has three goals in 18 games this season.
