Management of Warri Wolves has denied the sale of Goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi to a South African Club, Chippa United and declared that the news is like any other rumour which should be ignored by all stakeholders.
The Media Manager of the Club, Moses Etu who reacted on the issue yesterday said the South African Clubs are yet to learn and master the way the business is done in Europe.
He explained that some time ago, Akpeyi who is presently with the Super Eagles in Kaduna ahead of Nations Cup qualifier against Chad this weekend, took permission to travel to South Africa for a trial which was granted.
Etu further said since he came back, the South African Club has not opened any line of discussion with the Warri based Club and suddenly the rumour is everywhere that Akpeyi has signed for Chippa United.
Etu revealed that in as much as the Club will not stand on the way of any player seeking for greener pastures, the buyer should behave like others in Europe and contact the right people.
” Once again, we have to come out and tell the World that some mischievous people are at it again by trying to pass through the back door to do an illegal business. Our attention has just been drawn to a rumour that Daniel Akpeyi has signed for Chippa United. Ordinarily, we would have ignored the rumour but it kept on spreading like wild fire and we have decided to come out openly to deny the contract. And to advise whoever that is interested in any of our player to meet the Management of the Club in Warri.
That is the way it is done in a civilized society.” said Etu.
