10 December 2015, 11:35

Abuja - Abdulrahman Tonga who accused head coach of the Under-20 team of Nigeria Manu Garba of collecting money from grassroots players, has apologized over his comments.

Tonga in a letter made available to News24 via the Kaduna State FA, admitted he ignorantly made the allegations and rejects any harm his comments might have caused the coach.

The former media officer of Kaduna United also apologized to the organizers of the tournament, that the coach attended for his unguarded comments on social media citing wrong informations from ill-wishers.

In response the Kaduna State FA after a meeting with Grassroot Soccer Developments and other parties involved in the allegations urged them to bury the hatchet and move on like it never happened.

It would be recalled that Coach Manu Garba was in Kaduna for 4 days on a scouting mission ahead of next year U-20 camping, in which he picked 23 players but Tonga falsely claimed the players paid the sum of 50,000 Naira each after selection.

He made the wild claims on his facebook page tagging the Nigeria Football Federation but, he has taken down the post and apologized subsequently bringing an end to threats of dragging him to court by aggrieved parties.
