In the past, these agents were said to have caused destabilisation leading to poor performances from the players.

The communiqu described these agents as nefarious individuals and assured that they will be dealt with should they rear their heads again.

Genuinely disturbed by the vexed issue of agents and football merchants around the various National Teams and their debilitating effects on the performance of the teams over the past few years, the Board vowed to henceforth, mete out stiff sanctions to whoever is caught aiding or abetting, dealing, perpetrating or perpetuating the ignoble activities of these nefarious individuals no matter their roles, status or pedigree, the NFF communiqu read.

The board of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) have come out to back the stance taken by the president of the federation, Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau, on inviting players to the Super Eagles setup.

Gusau took over from Amaju Pinnick in September 2022 and has been trying to steady the ship in that time.

One of his main agendas outside the securing of finances for the various national teams is the technical setup of the teams, especially the Super Eagles.

Current manager Jos Peseiro is no different.
