A member of the executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation, Chris Green, has refuted allegations that some members of the football body sleep with players of the women’s national team, the Super Falcons, for them (players) to be part of the team.
According to Sunday Punch, former Falcons player, Omo-Love Branch, accused federation officials of sleeping with Falcons players in exchange for......places in the team.
Branch said NFF officials and not coaches, should be blamed for Falcons’ poor performances in recent times.
She alleged that the best players were not given the opportunity to play for the national team, saying federation members imposed their girlfriends on coaches.
The South Africa-based ex-defender cited an instance at the 2010 African Women’s Championship in South Africa, where she claimed that some players were indiscipline and rude to the coaches because they slept with top officials of the NFF.
But Green denied the allegations, saying he was not aware of officials sleeping with players for them to be invited to the women’s national team.
“I haven’t heard of any official wanting to sleep with a player before such a player is invited (to the Falcons). I haven’t seen it and I don’t think it exists,” he said.
