The minister of Sports and Chairman of National Sports Commission, Tammy Danagogo is still sulking over the inability of the Super Eagles to go beyond the round of 16 of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, lamenting that the situation is becoming a thing of a jinx.
The minister declared this when he played host to members of the Club Owners Association in his office at the National Stadium, Abuja.
He said the solution to breaking the jinx lies in the hands of the club owners whom he said have the potentials of harvesting players who will match with their counterparts in the developed nations.
The minister thus encouraged the club owners to work more together and overcome disputes among them. He charged them to learn to handle their problems privately rather than using the media to pass on their messages.
Danagogo applauded the club owners stressing that football association is recognised by FIFA as the bedrock of football in any country.
Meanwhile, the association praised the federal government for the leadership role, intervention as well as contributions towards ensuring that the FIFA suspension was lifted.
They called on the Minister to help in charging all stakeholders to abide by the provisions of the statutes of football as sanctioned by FIFA.
