First vice-president of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi has denied reports that regular appearances on social media by players of the Super Eagles is causing distractions in the team’s camp.
Rather than scold the players for posting personal comments and photographs across various online platforms, Akinwunmi downplayed the issue and hinted that it has already been addressed by the team’s officials.
Some of the players came up to caustic attacks on social media, after they lost to Croatia last Saturday and they consequently got enmeshed in nasty rants with the fans.
Though a follow-up suggested that NFF top shots were not amused by the development, Akinwunmi insists the issue has been put to rest.
“Personally, I don’t think that our players should react to people on social media. To the best of my knowledge, the issue has been addressed by those with the team in Essentuki and there’s no issue about that anymore,” Akinwunmi submitted.
