The Management of crack Nigeria National League NNL side, Nnewi United football club issued a stern warning to Nigeria professional league side, Sunshine Stars of Akure not to risk the three points at stake with other sanctions by fielding rock solid star central defender Ejike Uzoechi when they host Wikki Tourist fc today in their opening cracker of NPFL 2021/2022 Season.

According to the CEO/Sporting Director of Anaedo Lions Nnewi United who is an experienced football administrator, Mr Olisa Onuchukwu, “Sunshine stars reneged on the loan agreement of last season and has not formalised the one for this current season so Ejike Uzoechi is not eligible to play for Sunshine Stars yet and we will go to the highest level to prove it if the club management ignore this warning.”

He added that “I know my left and right very well regarding application of the rules, therefore i won’t allow mediocres to toy with me.”

We are the best professional football club in Nigeria today because we kept to our own side of bargain in all our contractual obligations to our players who can be reached for clarification of the above statements.

The dark skinned fearless defender who has a running five year contract with Nnewi United fc has witnessed meteoric career progresses after debuting in second tier league for Nnewi United fc in 2020/2021 NNL season, having scored five goals before joining sunshine stars on loan where his superlative performances with five league goals played a major role in Akure gunners successful fight against relegation.

Ejike’s overall performances was capped with home base super eagles invitation for the botched friendly with Congo recently, he however deservedly made the list of NPFL stars that took part in the Budweiser King of Football show graced by famous football legends, John Terry and Roberto Carlos.

Onuchukwu, who is also the General Secretary of ‘All Nigerian Football Players Union’ ANFPU, has then frown at the horrible incompetence level of Sunshine Stars fc management.

Ejike Uzoechi, whose loan move to owena whales at the second half of last season has since expired remains one of the revelations of last football season.
