Ex players have cursed Eagles - Taribo

A former Nigeria defender, Taribo West, has shockingly revealed that former players of the Super Eagles have placed a curse on the national team.

He said it was one of the major reasons why Nigerian football had experienced a downward slide in the last decade, except for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations success.

“Administrators in the past committed a lot of atrocities against Eagles players and in anger these players cursed the team. Stephen Keshi led the Eagles to win the AFCON title two years ago through the grace of God. We all saw the problems the team encountered before winning the trophy in South Africa,” the Atlanta ’96 Olympic Games gold medallist said.

“Imagine a nation you serve, you get injured and nobody cares; they dump you. Look at the way a player like (Rashidi) Yekini served the team and died. It shouldn’t have been. Somebody needs to go to his family and compensate them. (Sunday) Eboigbe has been paralysed for years and nobody has gone to see him. Will you say such a man, who gave his best for his country, shouldn’t curse his country?”
