Everton manager David Moyes looks like he has got himself in hot water with the Nigerian FA with this little gem about Yakubu:
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.
Perhaps unsurprisingly the Nigerian FA haven’t taken too kindly to this remark, prompting NFA spokesman Ademola Olajire to say:
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.
I don’t know much about Nigeria and Nigerians in general, but the one thing I can help you out on Dave is that if their prince drops you an email to let you know that he needs your help and all you have to do is give him your bank details, then for heaven’s sake do it!
