3. South Africa: Siv Ngesi eager to get in the ring with Cassper Nyovest

Known for his controversial tweets and fiery commentary, Siv Ngesi is on a mission to get into the boxing ring with rapper Cassper Nyovest but his request is being ignored by the star. Not going down without a fight and putting up one for days, Ngesi reckons it’s because Nyovest is scared of him. The media personality told the media: “I will fight anyone, even Big Zulu, but they’re avoiding me because they’re scared of me.”

In a string of appeals to Nyovest, Ngesi posted: “I’ve been trending for 3 days because you guys want me to fight @casspernyovest .. While you’re at it, please watch @WomanKingMovie!” Fans are calling for Ngesi’s offer to be taken up by Nyovest and they are even betting on Ngesi to “open a can of whip ass” on him.

Xabi Alonso has been handed his first senior managerial post after being confirmed as the new Bayer Leverkusen manager. Bayer Leverkusen has confirmed Alonso is the club’s new head coach and has signed a contract until June 30, 2024. The Spaniard enjoyed a stellar playing career, starring for Bayern Munich, Liverpool, and Real Madrid, and has since moved into management. The World Cup winner has worked as a coach with Real Madrid’s youth sides and most recently took charge of Real Sociedad B.

The team is currently one place off the bottom in the Bundesliga, with just one win from eight games. Leverkusen was also beaten 2-0 by Porto last time out in the Champions League but is still level on points in Group B with the Portuguese side and Atletico Madrid. Sporting director Simon Rolfes has explained why his club has moved for Alonso. “In Xabi Alonso, we have signed a coach who, as a player, was an absolute world-class professional for many years, an intelligent strategist, and extremely successful in three of the most demanding European leagues,” he told the club’s official website.
