Galadima advocates for Iheanacho

19 December 2013, 16:29

Lagos - Golden Eaglets hero, Kelechi Iheanacho, has received the backings of former Nigeria Football Association boss, Ibrahim Galadima as the player takes his footballing career to greater heights.

Galadima said he has been in touch with the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation on how best to groom Iheanacho and the rest of the Golden Eaglets for the future.

On the recent departure from the Super Eagles camp of Iheanacho, Galadima opined that while the player has a future career to pursue, the NFF which also helped in his development must keep a close eye on him and other members of the team.

“Europe is good for them because they can help groom them well both in football and education but I have told the NFF to keep an eye on all the players because they are future champions of the world, he said in press release.

“I also told them so when they paid me a visit here in Kano and I’m saying it again, they must be closely monitored to avoid exploitation and being misled by football profiteers”.

In doing so, Galadima said the NFF will not only be helping Nigeria but the players themselves.

“We have cases in the past when some players made so much money but could not even manage it, let alone asking them to come and be part of Nigerian football and sports management. That is what we must guide against and education is key to this”, he said.
