Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick has come out to urge football agents to stop taking players from Nigeria to unknown leagues. He recently revealed that he won’t allow any more NPFL players to leave for mushroom leagues.
According to him, anyone playing in Nigeria should only leave the country when there is a top club calling and not a weak league that Nigeria is better than.
Pinnick added that he wants to expose the country’s players to the highest levels of football so such moves will not be tolerated.
His words, “If you’re living in Nigeria, you’re going to a top club. Villarreal, Valencia, Lille, and all those proud footballing clubs and not to one mushroom club that you’re better off.”
“I want to expose you, people, to the highest levels so when you’re going to a foreign club, and we won’t allow any agent take you to countries like Cyprus, Belarus, etc., no, never we won’t allow it and I will make sure no transfer is issued on situations like that.”
