Goalkeeper Trainer, Shorunmu Laments Expulsion From Super Eagles

Super Eagles’ goalkeeper trainer, Ike Shorunmu has revealed that himself and Finidi George (1st assistant coach) were barred from the team’s camp on the request of Portuguese head coach Jose Peseiro.

The veteran goalkeeper mentioned that this strange development could have surfaced due to the backlog of payment they are owed as well as a reverse reaction to their request for an official contract with the NFF.

Shorunmu told Punch Newspapers that “Finidi called me on Sunday morning asking me if I got a message from the NFF, and I told him I didn’t get any message from them.

“He then told me he a got a message on Saturday night, that he should not bother to come to camp, that they are rotating his position for another coach to stand in. That is (Usman) Abdallah to replace Finidi.

“However, on Sunday afternoon, someone called me from NFF to also inform me that the top officials of the NFF want to inform me that Peseiro doesn’t want to work with me but with the U-20 goalkeeper coach (Olatunji Baruwa).
