The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF has expressed anger over the disappearance of U-20 National team skipper, Musa Muhammed from the camp of the U-23 National Team that is heading to Zambia for the crucial All Africa Games qualifiers.
NFF were officially briefed about the antics of the defender, who captained the U-17 National Team to a record fourth FIFA U-17 world title in 2013 and also led the U-20 to a seventh African title in Senegal last month.
Reacting to the incident, NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi had this to say;
“It will be an understatement for me to say the Nigeria Football Federation is disappointed by the behaviour of Musa Muhammed. This is someone who should be a role model for the Nigerian youth.
“He is very good at what he does and we love him for that. But discipline is essential in any vocation and the NFF will no longer condone indiscipline on the part of any player or coach of any of the National Teams.”
Sanusi went on to add that anyone found to have aided the player’s distasteful conduct would face severe sanctions.
“The player had been drafted to the U-23 team because the Coach believes he has something to contribute to bring glory to the nation. Whoever is found to be culpable in this shameful act will be punished.”
Muhammed was not part of the 18 –man list released by Coach Samson Siasia for the trip to Zambia, where the Dream Team will on Sunday seek to win a spot at the Men’s Football Tournament of the 11th All-Africa Games.
