Udeme who is a sports presenter with Love FM 104.5 station based in the Federal Capital Territory has asked the former Super Eagles player, to be man enough to mention the names of the members of 2014 World Cup crew led by Late Stephen Keshi who asked him for money before he can play for his fatherland.
Obasi who played for German Bundesliga side Shackle over the weekend in a video that wen viral alleges that he was asked by the technical crew of the Super Eagles to pay money to be selected for the 2014 World Cup squad in Brazil.
To this end, Mr Udeme George has given Obasi 24-hours to show evidence or name the culprits saying, players should stop “rubbing the name of our coaches in a mud.”
According to him, “I think we need to address this issue now, because the media have been awash with different allegations leveled against backroom staff of 2014 world cup in Brazil that was led by the late Stephen Keshi.
“A couple of days back we saw video trending with Obasi coming out to say he was asked to pay money to make the Super Eagles team that went to the FIFA World Cup in brazil.
“Now we have many of this stories, you hear a player telling you, ‘that they have been asked to pay certain amount of money if they are to make the list’, but they don’t say it immediately they were dropped or the incident happened, now they are coming out after years.
“How can you wait since 2014 to speak up in 2020? The concern now is, Obasi should be man enough to come out and tell the whole world who asked him for money in 2014? We don’t want to make do with cock and bull stories flying around, no; we must fish out the culprits. We must know that these guys are the reason our football is not moving forward, because they put money ahead of talent. If you don’t have money, they push you out even with your talent, they bring in players who have money and got no talent and we go to the world stage and get embarrassed by superior teams with talent.
“So, Obasi please I am asking you within 24 hours, give us names of those who were involved in this scandal, we don’t just want to make do with allegations. They are stories, anybody can come out and tell stories but until you give us names then we will start taking you serious.
“And if you can not be man enough to mention the names of those who were involved in this scandal, shut-up, because you can’t keep rubbing the names of our coaches in the mud, come out and give us names.” Udeme Geoge said
