Psalms 9:19-20
Arise, O Lord; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. Put them in fear, O Lord: that the nations may know themselves to be but men.

It is frightening to listen to the decrees made by some of our world leaders. They hold the lives of so many people in their hands, and all too often they seem bent on destruction, not only of themselves, but of as many people as they can take with them. Were it true that they really had the ultimate power, there would be no reason for hope.
We know better, however. The only true power in this world is the power of God, and our fate will not be decided by men and women, but by God. WE are created for eternity, and so we do not need to fear the decisions made by corrupt human beings in this age. Our trust is in the Lord of all creation, and in Him there is never reason to fear or doubt.
Prayer: Father God, sustainer of life and giver of sanity in an insane world, hear the prayers of Your people and give us peace and confidence of a bright new age to come. Amen.

Victor Lindelof sign for Manchester United

UNITED COMPLETE SIGNING OF VICTOR LINDELOF

Manchester United is delighted to announce the signing of Victor Lindelof from Benfica on a four-year contract from 1 July 2017, with an option for a further year.

The 22-year-old Swedish international centre-back is a versatile defender and will make his debut on the summer tour of the USA in July.

Jose Mourinho said:

“Victor is a very talented young player, who has a great future ahead of him at United. Our season last year showed us that we need options and quality to add depth to the squad and Victor is the first to join us this summer. I know that our fantastic group of players will welcome him as one of us.”

 

 

 


Victor Lindelof said:

“I am thrilled to be joining Manchester United. I have enjoyed my time at Benfica enormously and I have learned a lot there. But I’m looking forward to playing in the Premier League at Old Trafford and for Jose Mourinho. I’m keen to get started and make my contribution to the team’s efforts to win more trophies.”

The Reds have now completed the set of major trophies in the club’s illustrious history and secured a coveted place in next season’s Champions League.

Paul Pogba’s deflected strike in the first half and Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s flicked finish early in the second period gave United a 2-0 win in the final at the Friends Arena in Stockholm.

It was the perfect end to a mammoth 64-game season and a long journey in the competition for United, which has consisted of 15 matches and trips to eight different cities.

The success in Sweden means Jose Mourinho has won three competitions in his first season in charge at Old Trafford after lifting the Community Shield last August and EFL Cup in February – both at Wembley.

United will now face either Juventus or Real Madrid – who meet each other in the Champions League final in Cardiff on 3 June – in the UEFA Super Cup on 8 August at Philip II Arena in Skopje, Macedonia.

The Reds have become only the fifth team to win all three of the major European honours on offer – the European Cup Winners’ Cup, the European Cup/Champions League and UEFA Cup/Europa League – after Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus and this year’s final opponents AFC Ajax.

MOURINHO: WHY I SIGNED MKHITARYAN

MOURINHO: WHY I SIGNED MKHITARYAN

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has told MUTV exactly why he has made Armenian forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan his third signing of the summer at Old Trafford.

Mkhitaryan’s transfer from Borussia Dortmund was confirmed on Wednesday and it follows the previous arrivals of Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly and Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

During an exclusive interview with MUTV, Mourinho highlighted the 27-year-old’s excellent record in the Bundesliga and expressed his admiration for the player’s ability to unlock opposition defences.

“Well first of all, let me say that we have brought in the player who was voted the best player in the French league [Zlatan] and with Micki we have brought the player who was voted the best player of the Bundesliga,” Jose told MUTV’s Stewart Gardner.

“He was voted not by the fans, not by the journalists but voted by the fellow players and that is what means more, I believe, because when your fellow players are the ones that choose you then it means a lot.

“Micki is a fantastic player and what I like more is something that is undeniable, which is the number of goals that he scores by not being a striker. His number of goals per season is really high for somebody that is not a striker. The number of assists is also very clear because it shows clearly his creativity, his vision and his concept of collective play, and that is something that I believe is really important for a club like us.

“We try to be dominant and will, for sure, face teams with a very defensive profile which is his capacity of acceleration of the game. He has a change of speed with the ball and without the ball, and that is very, very important for a club like ours.”
