NFF frees Alampasu

24 June 2015, 09:01

Abuja - The Players’ Status/Arbitration Committee of Nigeria Football Federation has waded in to save the career of junior international goalkeeper Dele Alampasu, by giving him “unconditional clearance to play for a club of his choice.”

At its meeting in Abuja, the Committee, headed by NFF Executive Committee member, Alhaji Babagana Kalli, ruled that the contracts that the player, who was in the Nigeria U-20 squad to the just-ended FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand, signed with both Future Stars Academy, Lagos and Football College, Abuja are not binding as he signed as a minor.

“Future Stars Academy, Lagos and Football College, Abuja will only be entitled to training compensation/solidarity mechanism in accordance with the FIFA Regulations on Players’ Status and Transfer, 2014,” ruled the committee.

The career of the long-limbed goaltender, who was selected as the Best Goalkeeper of the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup that Nigeria won in the United Arab Emirates, had been on hold as both Future Stars and Football College claimed ownership.

Aside Babagana Kalli, other members present at the meeting were Jude Anyadufu, Dahiru Sadi and Austin Popo, as well as Nasiru Jibril (secretary) and Joshua Onoja (assistant secretary)
