“I never said, NFF will ban Super Falcon players, Officials”-Amaju Pinnick

NFF President, Mr. Amaju Pinnick has dissociated himself from stories making the rounds in the media that he had vowed to ban Super Falcon players and officials for protesting over their unpaid allowances.

In a twitter exchange with Michael Effiong, Editor of our sister publication, Ovation International, Mr. Pinnick said there were many rumours in town and he never said such a thing.

He stated on his official twittee page “Wow!! so many stories flying around.How can I say a thing like that.Truly, we can’t develop football by telling falsehood”.

Mr Pinnick was reacting to the story that he said Francesca Odega, one of the players will never returna to the Super Falcons for saying that she regrets wearing the national colours due to the wage row.

There was another story that Mr. Pinnick-led NFF had stated that it was going to sack the entire team and Coaching crew for the protest.

Already, sport-loving Nigerians have stood solidly behind the Falcons, insisting that their protest was in order while urging President Muhammadu Buhari who had congratulated the players to step in and pay them in full.
