The Blades were hit with a transfer embargo last moth after they failed to keep up payment installment on signings.

They were prevented from buying a player for the next 18 months unless they win promotion.

    There are Nigerian Clubs that would’ve benefited from this man’s ownership….this should serve as a wake up call to the NFF to do more in terms of league and cup administration and organisation so billionaires like Dozy can invest in our teams and private ownership encouraged.
