…Over Onazi injury in France clash
Argentine legend Diego Maradona has stated in clear terms that Blaise Matuidi’s challenge on Onazi is worse than the bite Luiz Suarez unleashed on Giorgio Chiellini.
Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Matuidi was shown a yellow card for the late tackle during his side’s 2-0 over the Super Eagles, which left the Lazio hard tackling player with a fractured leg.
“Where’s the ball? It’s criminal,” said the 1986 World Cup-winning captain of Argentina. “Now, I want to see the reaction of FIFA. The reaction of [Pele] and of [Franz] Beckenbauer. You must have a lot of nerve to not see that this is worse than Suarez.”
Meanwhile, injured Super Eagles midfielder Ogenyi Onazi has thanked Nigerian fans for the massive support during the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Onazi suffered a bad tackle from France midfielder Blaise Matuidi and is currently on crutches and Plaster of Paris.
“On behalf of myself and the entire team, I want to thank you all for your support and prayers for the team, we just want to show how much we really appreciate you. God bless you all” he tweeted.
