He assured the players that he will monitor all their transfer moves in order not to fall victim to dubious agents.
Pinnick also stated that the players would engage Ghana and Canada in an international friendly game in October.
“I am very happy with this development. There is no better way for you to showcase your talent than this game. Don’t play to impress me, play according to the instruction of the coach. Once you do that, you will be identified,” Pinnick told the players.
“I don’t want to hear that you are doing one transfer. If you are going to Real Madrid, Arsenal, Man United or any clubs in Europe, I will make sure I follow you for them to know that you are very important.
“You are the next big thing in Nigerian football regardless of the club you play for. You guys are the Super Eagles. e must win this game and by grace, in October we are going to tidy up all the documentation. You guys will be playing against Ghana and possibly maybe Canada. We want to expose you to the highest level. You guys are the pride of Africa right now. We won’t allow all these agents to take you to unknown clubs.”
