  • Another official assignment is nocking but yet the NFF has not come out with official information as regards to Salish Yusuf and his bribery allegations against his person. Does NFF thinks they hold no body any explanations or what?
    This should not be swept under the carpet, we demand answers.

    NFF just had it own issue recently resolved, Even though we know the case hasn’t been buried yet. Moreover, Coach Gernot Rohr already said that he(Salisu) won’t be with the team against Seychelles. That tells you that his case is not something that has been forgotten. And i have 100% trust in the Leadership of the Amaju Pinnick led-NFF board that they will surely address that issue.

    After the NFF election, the case would be addressed.. It can be counter productive…

    How Ezenwa (who is a third choice goalkeeper at lowly Enyimba) continues to make Super eagles squad baffles me

    I mean if you can’t be first choice in an NPFL club, you shouldn’t be near the national team

  • Clement, your right, i’m begging the coach to give this guy Ezenwa chance to try his own tallent too, because this way is a way for missing some of our players thank you..
