Taribo West Slams Pinnick Over ‘mushroom Clubs’ Comment by robosky02(m): 9:31pm On Jul 08, 2021
Former Super Eagles defender, Taribo West, has hit out at the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, over his remarks on blocking players based in the country from joining “mushroom clubs” abroad.

West described the comments as “insensitive” and “embarrassing”.

Pinnick, while addressing the home-based Super Eagles before last weekend’s friendly against Mexico, vowed to stop football agents from taking the players to unknown leagues in Europe

Instead, the NFF boss promised he would help the players join major leagues in Europe.

However, West told BBC Sport Africa: “You cannot keep people against their will in a league that doesn’t respect them, pay them, protect them or care about their welfare.

“Such comments from the head of Nigerian football are insensitive and embarrassing.”

West called on Pinnick to focus on developing the NPFL and advised him that “he doesn’t have any power to prevent any footballer who has access to move to those clubs he described as small leagues or ‘mushroom clubs’.”

Even Kenya league is far far better than Nigeria every one can attest to this
Nigeria league doesn't give our young players opportunities but the so-called muchroom clubs in Europe do
I have a first-hand experience of this my friend brother plays for Malmo ff fc in Sweden . Back then in Nigeria he never had opportunity to play in our local league because we don't have anybody
Fortunately he moves to lillestrom fc in Norway and today is Malmo ff fc in Sweden

What is pinnick saying !
They should not go to muchroom clubs, when players have not been paid for months in our league. Have a re-think please lipsrsealed

This man Don carry him bad character come public... Same thing he did when he was Delta FA Chairman... Blocked players from signing in Europe even after trials. There's also a starting point. Let them go to the mushroom clubs that will pay them rather than stay in this country and die of hardship.

Rubbish

It's time to sack Pinnik before he completely ruins are football

Olympics is coming and Nigerian football is not going to be anywhere near there

Pinnik's board has ruined all our age grade national teams male and female . Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles Nigerians love are nowhere to be found

Pinnick and taribo both made reasonable points.... The ''mushroom club'' tag made by pinnick was unnecessary though

It is better to be playing for a mushroom club in Belgium than playing for a useless league like Nigeria league with no sponsor, no funding, poor welfare etc.
