Hope that embattled Super Eagles star, Sunday Mba’s transfer saga may soon end to allow him return to football action in the local may be a mirage as Warri Wolves who are in a bitter tussle with Rangers of Enugu over ownership of the player are not eager to let go soon.
Chairman of the Warri outfit, Amaju Pinnick in a telephone conversation with Saturday Vanguard sports said Rangers must first apologise to Warri Wolves in two national newspapers and two television stations before they can start discussing the real issue of who owns the player.
“Warri Wolves have been so maligned by Rangers over this Mba issue and they must apologise in two newspapers and television stations before we can start talking. We have argued our case and the secretary-general of the NFF should disclose the outcome of the meeting we held,”he stressed.
Efforts to reach the spokesman of Rangers FC, Foster Chime proved futile as his phone didn;t go through.
Meanwhile Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi has threatened to drop Mba from the team preparing for the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Kenya in Calabar next if the Rangers and Warri Wolves fail to reach n early agreement on the player’s case.
Keshi who spoke on a radio station in Lagos said he may be forced to take the decision as the crisis is capable of distracting the player from giving his best in the game after his superlative performance at the Nations Cup.
