NFF President Pinnick Accused Of Using Force On Watford New Boy Dapo To Dump Scotland For Nigeria
The President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick has been accused of using underhand tactics to coerce Watfords new signing Dapo Mebude into dumping Scotland for Nigeria .
Dapo who is eligible for Nigeria at senior level is a strong part of the U19 team of Scotland since 2018 with four goals from 11 appearances to his name after his rapid rise from the U17 where he had one goal from six appearances.
Rated as one of the surest teen prospect in Scottish football, the 19 year old recently joined newly promoted English Premier League side Watford and he got off to a flier with a goal in his first game for the club in pre season.
His move to Watford was celebrated by the Nigerian press, so much that the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick had to take a picture with him and the other Nigerians at the club.
That picture didn’t go down well with the press in Scotland and they are accusing Pinnick of using ambush methods to persuade the forward into playing for Nigeria.
Per the reports, Pinnick was said to have classified him as a potential international for Nigeria without respecting the fact that he is presently a core member of the Scottish youth set up.
The termed it as disrespect and also a tactics by Pinnick to turn the head of the teenager into having a change of mind into playing for Nigeria.
