NFF Begs! We Don’t Have Funds For Match Against Zambia
Amaju Pinnick, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation yesterday said they lack adequate funds for the Super Eagles’ World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Ndola on Sunday. Pinnick said this when he appeared before the Senate Committee on Sports yesterday. His words;
“Nigeria was paired with former Africa Cup of Nations winners, Zambia, Algeria and Cameroon, who have been to the World Cup seven times. Algeria is the highest ranked team in Africa as we speak. It is a group that is called ‘Group of Death’, which means we need to intensify our preparations. We need to monitor our players and make sure that the ticket is made available.
“The good news is that I think we have a very sound technical crew and we also have a lot of our players doing very well, but the missing link is our financial incapacitation, which activates practically everything you do on the field and off the field.
“Before now, we have sent a representation to government for intervention because funds were not coming in from our sponsors, which relates to the economy of the country at the moment and it has been very difficult for them –that is what they claim. So, we didn’t have any option but to resort to writing to government, which we did and we are still waiting for a response from them and the match is five days away.”
