Business mogul and owner of Real Sapphire Football Club of Nigeria , Mr Frank Peters has shown displeasure concerning the frequent intimidation being displayed by some people in NFF against Real Sapphire FC and that henceforth such acts will be will be restricted completely by the club.
The Business Mogul , who spoke through the academy’s sport director , Francis Ogete , lamented on the NFF’s roles through an Egyptain scout , Zane Abdulhammid , in the hijack of some of her players on trials in Egypt .
Three of the five players , who are currently plying their trade in various clubs are Odo Joshua Chidibere -AL GHAZWA FC in Saudi Arabia , Odo Mose Tochuckwu – AL MAKKASA and Ajibade Abiola Samson – SERAMEKA FC , are in the Egypt League .
According to Francis Otege in an interview with Sport Journalist , Dipo Liadi , the Charismatic Francis Ogete , spoke frankly concernig NFF unprofessional attitude .
“How can a registered academy in Nigeria have a problem with the Egyptian FA and the NFF turns her eyes off, we are talking about transfers that involved 5 players, imagine how much we used to finance these players out of Nigeria only for us to hear that some clubs in Egypt through a scout hijacked them”.
The Club claimed that NFF issued the international transfer certificate to players that are duly registered under them without due process.
How can they play for clubs internationally if they are registered with the NFF under our club, who issued international transfer certificates (ITC) for them.
We are not going to bow to NFF, we will start fishing out the people involved in this dirty deal, we have gone to FIFA already and we are calling on every Nigerian interested in football to call the NFF to order.
We will ensure that this issue gets resolved and we want to clearly send a message to Amaju Pinnick to call his men to order.
Let us inform Nigerians that the academy has invested over N20m on these five players over the years, we will ensure that the investment will count.
Kazeem Balemo, Moses Odo, Ogenetega Laba, Ajibade Abiola and Odo Joshua are the players involved. We presently have confirmed information that two of them are playing in leagues in Egypt while another one is playing in Saudi Arabia.
The big question is who cleared them in the NFF “? Franis Otege lamented .
