Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), earlier requested for the release of their player for the league game through Coach Samson Siasia.
[dropcap type=”2″]S[/dropcap]iasia has recently directed Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) to send their requests to the General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Mohammed Sanusi, as he (Siasia) has no power to release any player.
Coach Siasia said: “While I understand with them that they need their players for club engagements, I also want to remind them that they need to co-operate with us to qualify for the football event of the Rio Olympic Games, and the only way we can achieve this objective is by having all the players in camp to train so we can pick only the best legs.”
Expressing displeasure at the requests being made by these clubs for the release of their players.
The U-23 supremo disclosed that for now, no player will be released from the camp, and that aside those in the Super Eagles B that were in Ouagadougou for Sunday’s CHAN qualifier against the Etalons of Burkina Faso, all other players must report to camp and be part of the team’s training session today, or forget about reporting to camp altogether.
