Rug, it was good to see you yesterday & some of the others. After a pretty dour 1st half I was pleased with 2nd half & Kanu changed the game. Grateful for the penalty & the 3pts.
Anyway, an interesting story breaking, which concerns the age of our ex-player Yakubu & has some reflection on Kanu.
The Nigerian FA have written in complaint to the FA at comments made by Everton manager David Moyes towards Yakubu, and other Nigerian’s in general regarding their ages, and maybe what they might really be?
“He’s only 25, albeit a Nigerian 25, and so if that is his age he’s still got a good few years ahead of him,” Moyes told the Guardian newspaper.
Yakubu is not the only one who has had his age questioned over the years, as many other Nigerians including our own Kanu have too.
NFA spokesman Ademola Olajire countered Moyes’ comments on the BBC
“His statement is insulting to the Nigerian nation and unbecoming of a Premier League manager”
“We don’t take kindly to snide remarks about our players, or our nation and we have sent a strongly-worded complaint to the English FA.
“Seriously, we will go at any length to ensure he is brought to book to explain his comments.”
