War over Mba: NFF decides

The committee empanelled by the Nigeria Football Federation to resolve the controversy over the ownership of Super Eagles’ Cup of Nations star Sunday Mba will meet in Abuja on Wednesday.

Controversy has been raging among several clubs over the ownership of the nimble-footed marksman who scored the winner against the Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire in the quarter finals and the only goal in the final match against Burkina Faso’s Etalons at the 29th Africa Cup of Nations that ended in South Africa last month.

Already, the committee has invited officials of two-time CAF Champions League winners Enyimba FC of Aba, Enugu Rangers, Dolphin FC of Port Harcourt and Warri Wolves, alongside the player himself.

“The committee will sit on Wednesday and we will look at all papers presented by all parties, and be guided by the rules, without fear or favour.

We will look thoroughly into the matter with the highest sense of responsibility and take just decision, in order for the player to continue his club and national team career with peace of mind and comfort,” said Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, NFF’s Director of Competitions.
