NFF Distance Self From Rift Rumour With William Troost-Ekong

William Troost-Ekong, Super Eagles

The Nigerian Football Federation have quashed a media report alleging that they have a problem with Udinese defender, William Troost-Ekong.

BBC ace journalist, Osasu Obayiuwana had Tweeted that Troost-Ekong was a bad influence to the team during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Obayiuwana claimed that Troost-Ekong fought for $15,000-a-man match bonus for the Eagles after they claimed their eighth bronze medal at the 2019 AFCON.

But the Super Eagles media officer disregarded comments credited to Obayiuwana calling them false.

“The story about Troost-Ekong making a $15,000-a-man match bonus demand in Ukraine is totally false….blatant lies. Nothing of such happened in Ukraine, Ibitoye told The Punch.

“I am urging my colleagues to avoid false stories capable of destroying the harmony that is being built in the Eagles camp among the players, officials and the football federation.

“We have a very cordial relationship that is based on trust and mutual respect and this didn’t happen overnight, it took time to build these ingredients in our team and will not allow anybody to destroy what we have with falsehood and an evil agenda.

Ibitoye also accused Obayiuwana of being fallacious with his words as he had no proof to back up his allegation against the Udinese centre-back.

“Logic, how can Troost-Ekong be fighting for $15,000-a-man match when the bonus for the third-place win alone is higher than that?”
