He Crossed The Line – NFF Angry With Osimhen For Joining Calls To Pay Super Falcons

The president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is not happy with the comment made by victor Osimhen on the issue of non payment of bonuses to the Super Falcons.

Osimhen delved into the controversial issue that had been a major talking point in the build-up to the Women’s World Cup, which later resurfaced after Nigeria’s elimination in the Round of 16 tie against England.

“Pay them @Thenff” Osimhen posted on his Instagram handle joining calls from around the world calling for the nff to pay the Super Falcons their arrears which have been left unpaid since 2021.

“I can tell you at the NFF no one cares about what Odion Ighalo or Victor Anichebe said, they are former players and can speak unlike Osimhen. He has a very good relationship with the president, Ibrahim Musa Gusau, so close that he invited him to Italy when Napoli lifted the league title.”

“Gusau felt betrayed because with a simple phone call, he would’ve explained to him about the entire saga. It didn’t start with Gusau, it has been there since 2001. A Player like Osimhen should not jump on the back of anything he sees on social media rather, ask questions or stay out. He crossed the line on this one,” a top NFF official told Owngoal Nigeria.

As to what possible action can be taken against the Napoli forward, the source said he does not expect any severe punishment from the NFF on Osimhen.

“They will sort it out like father and son. I really don’t think it has gotten to the extent of punishment.”

Recall, Desire Oparanozie, was blacklisted for speaking out during the 2019 FIFA women’s World Cup.

She was left out of the Super Falcons team for two years, Only to be reinstated after she was asked to write an apology letter to the federation.

If same will be done to Osimhen, then he may not be at the AFCON tournament in Ivory Coast next year.
