The COVID-19 outbreak has had an enormous impact on the football industry, causing considerable drops in clubs’ revenues and their players’ market value.

Real Madrid’s left-winger Eden Hazard has witnessed the most significant drop in market valuation this year, revealed the TransferMarkt data. In June 2019, while the Belgian footballer played for Chelsea, his market value amounted to €150 million, the highest figure in the career. However, by the end of 2019, this value dropped to €120 million.

The year 2020 hasn’t been easy for the famous left-winger, bringing a new significant drop in his market value. Statistics show Eden Hazard was worth €60 million in October, a 50% plunge since the beginning of the year.

Antoine Griezmann and Dele Alli round the top five list, with a €40 million and €38 million market value drop in 2020, respectively.

The group said it decided to halt all donations after President Muhammadu Buhari’s speech on Thursday.

The rest of the donations will go towards funding medical emergencies, legal aid for wrongfully detained citizens, and relief for victims of police brutality and families of the deceased.

“The past two weeks have been tough for many Nigerians, most especially the last two days. Many lives have been lost and properties destroyed at the height of what started as peaceful marches for the end to police brutality.

“The Feminist Coalition condoles with every Nigerian mother, father, son, daughter who has lost a loved one in these trying times. These Nigerians share the same vision for a better country as we all do and should be duly recognized as heroes.

“Following the President’s address, we hereby encourage all young Nigerians to stay safe, stay home, and observe the mandated curfew in your state.

#EndSARS Protesters Gathered at Lekki Toll Gate Despite Curfew

Lagos protesters defied the 24-hour curfew imposed by the executive governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, as they gathered at Lekki Tollgate to continue their agitation.

The peaceful #EndSARS protesters sang the nation’s national anthem as they held on to their Nigerian flags proudly.

Earlier today, governor Sanwo-Olu, had imposed a 24-hour curfew across all parts of the state, saying the peaceful protest has been hijacked by criminals and unscrupulous individuals.

In a statement put out by the governor, he said “I have watched with shock how what began as a peaceful #EndSARS protest has degenerated into a monster that is threatening the well-being of our society.

“Lives and limbs have been lost as criminals and miscreants are now hiding under the umbrella of these protests to unleash mayhem on our state. As a government that is alive to its responsibility and has shown a commitment to the movement #ENDSARS, we will not watch and allow anarchy in our dear state.”

“I, therefore, hereby impose a 24-hour curfew on all parts of the State as from 4pm today, 20th October,2020. Nobody, except essential service providers and first responders must be found on the streets.

However, the determined Nigerian youths matched forward as they clamoured for complete police reform and a broad-based transparent and good governance for all Nigerians and not a selected few.
