Mauricio Pochettino says he is "not in charge" of transfers at Tottenham and believes his job title should be changed from manager to coach.

The Argentine made the comments after Spurs' 1-0 audi cup win over Real Madrid in Munich on Tuesday.

Earlier this month, Spurs broke their transfer record to sign Lyon Midfielder Tanguy Ndombele the club's second signing since January 2018.

"I know nothing about the situation of my players," said Pochettino.

When he extended his contract at Tottenham in 2016, his job title changed from head coach to manager and the 47-year-old said "We are agreed that it would be good, for myself, for the club, for all.

"It's true that 'manager' is a word that means different things than head coach. Maybe I was always manager from the first day I arrived here - and maybe it describes my job better."

Two months ago, Pochettino, signed a new five year contract in May 2018. He said, he would be "stupid" to stay at the club if they expect similar levels of success without changing the way they are run. He led the team to the Champions League final and fourth in the Premier League.

"I am not open to start a new chapter with no plan, with no clear idea, with not being transparent," he said.

Following the win over Real, he avoided questions about the future of defender Danny Rose, saying: "I am only coaching them and trying to get the best from them.

"Sell, buy players, sign contract, not sign contract - I think it is not in my hands, it's in the club's hands and [chairman] Daniel Levy.

"The club needs to change my title and description. Of course I am the boss deciding the strategic play, but in another area I don't know. Today, I feel like I am the coach." 

In his comments, the hashtag #backpoch started trending on Twitter as Tottenham fans showed their support for the manager.

Harry Kane scored Spurs' winner against Real when he intercepted a wayward back-pass from Marcelo in the 22nd minute.

Rose and Christian Eriksen both started for Spurs despite recent transfer speculation, while Real Madrid's former Tottenham player Gareth Bale, whose proposed move to China was called off this week, remained in Spain due to illness.

 If you are not ready to walk down the aisle with your partner, do not bother introducing them to your parents just for the sake of doing so. It is advisable to do it when you are both ready. The right time can be determined by how accommodating your parents are, if they are not as strict then go right ahead and plan something casual. Just remember to be sure that your partner is comfortable with the idea as well. It may not be a big deal on your part, but it could be a big deal to your partner as meeting parents is a sure way to prove how committed you are to your relationship. If your parents are more formal in the sense that a dinner is called for, then perhaps you should take more time to prepare your partner beforehand so he or she knows what to expect. Either way, all parties have to be ready for the meeting if you want it to be successful.

Some parents make it very clear that they are only interested in meeting their Children’s partners only when they have decided that they want to marry them. Some parents are just that way and you cannot fault them for being so stock in their traditional ways. If you have parents like these, then it is better to play by their rules and only introduce your partner to them when things are very serious between you too. It is advisable to get more intimate so that everyone has the chance to properly get to know one another, but of course, that is the right way to go. In any case, here are 7 signs that it is probably time to meet the folks.

The Love is Mutual. You will know that it’s the right time to meet the parents once you both can attest that the love is mutual. There is no point in putting everyone through the stress of getting to know one another if your relationship is not going to last. These days we see people introduce different partners every now and then to their family members. Once you have decided that you are going to be joining with your partner indefinitely, it is probably the right moment to make the introduction to your parents.
Your partner has met your friends. If your partner has hung out with your friends on more than one occasion, then it is safe to say that he or she may be ready to meet the folks. There is less pressure when it comes to meeting a group of friends and if you partner passes with flying colors, then think about introducing him or her to your parents.

Your partner has met your other family members. Whether your partner has met other family members by pure chance or intentionally, once he or she has met an extended family member, it is probably time to meet the parents.

For example, you and your boyfriend may have run into your aunt at the supermarket and you introduced them so as not to be rude. Remember that people talk. And if your family is anything at all like mine, they will talk a lot. News will spread like wildfire that your aunt met your boyfriend before your parents did.

Even chance encounters such as these can lead to massive family drama, so take the bull by the horns and set up a lunch date with your parents sooner rather than later. The same can be said if you introduce your girlfriend to your sister over cocktails and tapas. What makes you think your sister is not going to report everything to your mum? Expectations will be set, judgments will be made and before you know it, your parents will be harping on you to introduce them to your special someone.

You talk about the future. Once you start thinking in terms of “us” instead of “me” then you know that the timing is right. If you see yourself being with your partner for a long time, then the next course of action is to make him or her a part of your life. That means meeting the people who created you. This step will certainly make your partner happy as it serves as validation that you are taking things to the next level.
The idea isn’t intimidating to you. If the idea of your partner meeting your folks does not scare you out, then what are you waiting for? This is a good sign as it indicates that you are comfortable with the two family meeting and becoming one by way of marriage. Ensure that your partner feels the same way and not to push him or her if they are not ready.

Everyone is ready. I suppose if you cannot figure out when the “right time” is, then just take it easy and only set up a meeting once everyone is mentally ready. Speak to your parents about this special someone and gauge their reaction when you suggest a meeting. Do the same with your partner. Once you think that everyone is comfortable enough to take the next step, then you will know that it is the perfect time.

Meeting the parents for the first time is a huge step whether you think so or not. You will be surprised at how many relationships go awry just because the initial meeting with immediate family members did not go as planned.

As much as you love your partner, what your family thinks also carries weight, especially if you are close to them. Never underestimate a parent’s intuition when determining if their child is with the right person. Parents have a bizarre sixth sense when it comes to stuff like that, so take you time and do not rush it. You will know when the time is right.

Banning foreign movies will probably cause more problems for Nollywood.
Desmond Elliot says banning foreign movies can fix Nollywood. [Instagram/DesmondElliot]

When the Nigerian government calculated the entertainment industry as part of the 2013 GDP, there was an increase from $270 billion to $510 billion.
That entertainment industry was a sum of Nollywood, the music industry and the art industry. There is potential in an industry with an audience of over 100 million people. Equally, Nigerians keep spending a killing at cinemas that are not nearly as enough to cater to the viewers.
But sadly, a crushing lack of quality productions continue to inhibit the industry. For years, we have known that asides the problems of terribly financed and produced movies, we also have well-documented problems of piracy, lack of funding, terrible stories and scripting, terribly trained actors, poor directors and godfatherism.
While we document and never create a roadmap to combat these problem, foreign movies continue to soar in influence on the Nigerian populace. To put it quite simply, Hollywood, Bollywood, Latino TV Shows, and even South East Asian movies either have everything or most of the things our movies lack.

On Sunday, July 21, 2019, an interview of Nigerian actor and politician, Desmond Olushola Elliott surfaced on Hip TV. He dropped his two cents on the matter of improving Nollywood movies. To him, banning foreign movies will do the trick. He linked it to how the federal government banned rice.

In his words and after stating his first point, he said, "Secondly, they need to consciously and intentionally focus on improving this industry. Treat it like you're importing rice... You ban all foreign content, make it difficult for all foreign content to come in, so your local content can grow.
"And then, you need to support (financially) the music industry, you need to support the film industry... even the comic industry as well..."
To end his hot take, he highlighted good points on lack of funding. First, we need to admit that he has the interest of the industry at heart. His approach is just faulty.
Secondly, we have to admit that he has some persuasive validation for his purist analogies. When the Federal Government banned rice, the locally produced rice markets have emerged and are booming.

In China, a lot of globally accepted brands like Facebook are rejected for purist reasons and to prevent 'espionage.' In their absence, local Chinese companies like Weibo have thrived.

To him, he probably feels like banning foreign content will force people to face Nollywood and cure its ills. He has a point, however crooked it is. The only problem is that he forgets that China is a communist state and rice is not film.

Rice is food, movies are mostly product. To put things into context, the rice industry isn't confronted with as much problems as Nollywood. Agriculture is a Nigerian reality to start with. Nollywood is a ridiculous problem with improper grounding that created problems which continue to fester.

Even with the ban on rice, illegal importation of rice is still in full swing. Banning foreign movies in Nigeria will be like the terribly-thought out American prohibition on liquor which unleashed the demon of smuggling and created rich men of illegality.

Nigeria is one of the untapped tourist destinations in Africa. Nigeria is blessed with the wondrous landscape of Obudu, the implausible beauty of the Yankari National Park, the aquatic splendor of Lagos, Mountain Resort in Calabar, the sacred groove of Osun, and many more.

However, In order to have the best trip possible, and not flout local custom, when you visit Nigeria, it is advisable to be culturally sensitive and environmentally friendly. The following guide might be of help.

Don’t Skip the Local Tourist Office:
The local tourism office is one of the best places to get advice on current events, festivals, and information you’re likely not going to find in a guidebook or by just asking random people. This is because the job of those working at the local tourism office is literally to know everything about the place you’re in, so when you get to a new city, be sure to go the tourism office to get information on what to see and do, and where the deals are. They can also help you with maps and discount cards as well as help you to book accommodations.

Expect everyone to speak English:
To be fair, a lot of people in Nigeria do speak English. Nigeria is an incredibly multicultural and multilingual country, with English, Pidgin English, Yoruba, Igbo, and Hausa spoken widely. However, English is not as common outside of larger cities, so don’t assume that the locals in a rural town will be fluent in English, and then get frustrated when they are not.

Do Not Make Troubles:
One of the best ways to enjoy Nigeria is by minding your own business. You can make friends but don’t offend anyone. Don’t be upset if they are asking you too many questions.

Ask For Permission before Taking Pictures:
Nigerians are hospitable and friendly people, it would be considered rude and disrespecting for taking pictures of the locals without their consent. To be on a safer side, courtesy demand you should, first of all, take permission before taking pictures. Don’t be surprised the locals will even like to take as many pictures as you want.

Mind What You Do In Public:
Nigerians are conservative people. So, therefore, mind the kind of things you do in public like smoking, displaying affections such as kissing or romancing in public.



Not everybody is blessed with perfect white teeth. Most people are struggling with teeth discoloration which is caused by factors like poor dental hygiene.

Having great teeth is important because your teeth is the first thing that people see. That is why many people are in search of an effective whitening paste as part of their dental care.
