    The next squad list for Super Eagles will still have Musa Ahmed live with no place for a solid player like Victor Boniface…

    Nobody should tell Ahmed Musa to respect himself… let the team Manager of Super Eagles just assign him to washing training jerseys and bips. Maybe then he will advise himself…

    Lol… Oldman wey no wan leave stage for those wey get dance go embarrass himself, trip and fall face down!

  • When you see genuine talent you know it even if NFF and it’s cohorts refuse to invite them to the national team……A 22 year old worth 20mil in today’s market but is not even an international yet tells you alot about what is going on in our football…….The most painful thing is that people still support and even manufacture excuse for the continued exclusion of our best players from our national team…….. They will say who will he bench,we have too many strikers,he should wait for his time,and many more……..then when he is finally invited they will be so critical of him and look for any slightest excuse to discard him…….. Many of them will avoid this topic and they will never comment here …….Must the whites always show us who the best among us is?????……Who do us like this??????……Boniface nice move jareee…… Top 5 league should be the standard.

      @Akp… exactly brother. Guys like those we all know here run away from headlines like this where real talks and facts are needed to shared for fellow for all to contribute.

      I live in Germany and believe me brother, the football culture here is mad, fanatical and fever-pitched… German fans own their local clubs no matter how small with passion.

      Germans know their football and to be honest, these are one set of people who are culturally very critical and shrewd, traditional clubs like Leverkusen will not just sign anyhow player for €20+ million.

      We have crazy douchebags like of Eguaveon, Gusau running our football. With the level of talents we have now, mediocre players like Moses Simon, Aribo, Frank Onyeka, Ahmed Musa and Troost Ekong should cease making first eleven when lineups are put out henceforth… but the sleazebags who take decisions with a coach like Peseiro who is only a politician won’t let the fans have joy.

      Some Nigerian footballers will be having, hopefully, positive career-defining moves this season, and this is one of them. I believe that Boniface VB22 will have at Bayer 04 an similar to that of Folarin Balogun at French club Reims last season. For me, this is a top move.

        I believe that Boniface VB22 will have at Bayer 04 an IMPACT similar to that of Folarin Balogun…

  • This kid deserves a ton of respect.
    To have come back from two back-to-back ACL injuries and miss almost two back-to-back seasons in Norway, impress enough to be signed by burgeoning Union Saint-Gilloise, walk straight into their starting line-up and after only one season, perform well enough to be snapped up by a very good Bundesliga club, Bayer Leverkusen speaks volumes of young Victor Boniface’s mental toughness.
    They don’t come tougher than this player.
    Congratulations to you!
    Wishing you all the best in your new adventure in Germany!!

    Ride on boy! Enjoy your game whether they invite you or not we know you are good. Let them continue to invite old and tired legs nemesis will catch up with them.

    l have since given up on Nigeria Team. They will not qualify for the World Cup next time as Ghana beat them to qualify last year. What is wrong with picking Victor Boniface. Or Uban into the team? Corruptions is the game in Nigeria.

  • I do wonder on the reasons Nigeria is so corrupt in all facet. Time will tell on Boniface, Urban and co situation concerning SE invitation.
    Corruption is eating deeply in Nigeria

    A great move for Boniface….I’m glad for this

  • AKP & Jimmy una talk sense. 9/10 there’s gotta be something about you if a German club pays 20 for you. Sadly we never tie this guy down because politicians no gree us. Be like Na protest go change this direction of travel

  • Good move. If this player and orban are not in the next list then we have to do something. I mean we can’t just continue to keep quiet in this country. We can write to the Senate of house of reps committee on sports. We can team up with journalist associations to blow this open. Why should they continue to kill the joy of Nigeriams with their selfishness.

    Why bring in bench warmers and retired players when we hsve young players doing well in European competition.

    We can bombard nff social media handles with comments etc. We can choose a day to do this collectively here.

    We can run a Facebook ad to expose this people. Qualifying for world cup should not be a problem when we do the right things.

    Thank God we will be using uyo now. If we use our best players per time we won’t have problems
