Osimhen has not been kicked out of Super Eagles — NFF


The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, says it has not banned Super Eagles’ forward, Victor Osimhen from the national team over his social media outburst last week.

Dr Mohammed Sanusi, NFF General Secretary, expressed shock at the reports by some online publications not LagosPost on Wednesday, that the Napoli forward has been banned, describing the report as outright falsehood.

He said the Federation has neither instructed a process nor has a process been concluded to ban the player from the team.

“The NFF hereby implores the media to join hands with the body to positively resolve issues and then focus on the big picture all the time, rather than needlessly escalate certain matters. There was no official communication from the NFF, yet some persons have gone to town to talk about a ban on Osimhen from the National Team. This is not good at all.

The Nigeria’s football-governing body said it is currently occupied with how to resolve all matters around the senior national team and “be able to look ahead with confidence to the 2025 AFCON qualifiers and the remaining six matches of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualification series.”

“This is not the time to spread falsehood and foul the public space the more.”
