Taribo blows hot: Giwa has nothing to offer Nigeria football
Former Nigeria international Taribo West has described the lingering struggle for the soul of Nigerian football as an unnecessary battle that should be called off forthwith.
“Both sides are not sincere to themselves, whether Pinnick or Giwa. The war must stop so that we can move our football forward,” Taribo said.
But Taribo was impressed with the Pinnick-led board of the Nigeria Football Federation as the better of the two gladiators fighting for the leadership of Nigerian football. Said he, “Pinnick has been able to raise the credibility level in the manner things are run,” adding, “for the first time players allowances were paid in a major tournament without rancour. They have also brought a lot of investors to Nigeria football and incredible football summits to Nigeria. “We have seen FIFA delegates and CAF delegates in this country and they have raised the profile of Nigerian football internationally.”

Rohr, though, stated categorically that the former Wolverhampton Wanderers of England shot-stopper will join the Eagles’ crew for subsequent matches, as the Franco-German tactician. Read more at https://footballlive.ng/ikeme-joins-eagles-crew-after-seychelles-match/
