Super Falcons: NFF to ban several players & officials for "unruly comments"

Reports reaching ADELOVE indicate that Nigerian sports authorities plan to ban several Super Falcons stars and some of the coaches could lose their jobs as fallout from the standoff over unpaid entitlements.

Falcons striker Francisca Ordega will likely be among the stars to be removed after she said she regrets playing for the country.

The USA-based star was later blasted by NFF president Amaju Pinnick for her comments.

“I can categorically state here that the name Ordega will never be heard or seen in a Super Falcons team list again. This I was told by another top official of the football house,” a source informed.

“No less than 10 of these players could be banned for life for ridiculing their fatherland before the international media and henceforth, the NFF may draw up a code of conduct to guide against future occurrences.”

“The coaches and officials are not left out as they could lose their jobs for not standing firm in support of the federation when it matters most.”

Nigerian sports minister Solomon Dalung visited the team Thursday and pleaded with them for understanding before their outstanding allowances and bonuses.

But the girls have dug in, insisting they will only quit their hotel when they get their monies.



  1. The NFF actually ridiculed their fatherland
    They are bunch of idiotic fellows, they don’t deserve to be in charge of NFF
    They should all resign and go back to their villages
    EFCC should visit them and treat them the way they treated the judges

  2. It is the NFF that is suppose to receive punishment by resigning from their jobs and not young girls that need supports.
    This girls camped several months, denying themselves all things just to represent their father land when it matters most.
    It is wrong for NFF to make such statements.

  3. Banning them for having the courage to speak the home truth
    Then what will be the penalty for the NFF officials for their very poor administive and management skills as displayed in their handling of the girl’s victory in the football tournament
