“We won’t beg Saka” – NFF


The Nigerian Football Federation has stated clearly it’s non desired to beg any player to play for the Super Eagles.

The President of the Federation, Mr Amaju Pinnick has in the past tried to convince few players to pick the Eagles over any National team, but the Delta State born Administrator says he won’t do such anymore. Bukayo Saka has attracted the likes of top clubs in Europe, same as Gareth Southgate who is currently the Coach of the English National Team. Bukayo Saka currently has dual citizenship, and can play for either Nigeria or England, until he finally makes an International appearance.

“Saka is an excellent prospect but we have other players in his position who are playing so well, We have talents everywhere so we won’t beg people to play for Nigeria. It is about ardour and fervour, If it’s their desire and they merit it, they’ll be given a chance to represent Nigeria” Pinnick said.
