Two-time African Footballer of the Year Nwankwo Kanu has said those behind the leadership tussle rocking Nigeria ought to be ashamed of themselves.
Chris Giwa has insisted he has been voted new NFF president and will not vacate the federation’s office despite a looming FIFA ban of the country.
However, FIFA has maintained they do not recognise Giwa as president who has taken the world football governing body to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
“All those involved in this crisis have to be ashamed of themselves because they are really killing football in Nigeria,” lashed out Kanu, who is the country’s Soccer Ambassador.
“There is no peace. Nobody understands what’s going on and the earlier this problem is solved, the better.”
Some observers have even been blamed the crisis for the Super Eagles 3-2 loss to Congo in Calabar, and according to africanfootball.com this was stressed by the team coordinator Emmanuel Attah.
“The boys’ concentration was affected by the crisis as much as we do not wish to admit this,” said Eagles official Attah.
The Eagles left for Cape Town on Saturday for the crucial game against the Bafana Bafana.
