I’m Not Aware, Says Club Secretary
Nigeria premier league side, Warri Wolves, have placed a staggering $2 million (about N560 million) on U-23 midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo, according to Mtnfootball.com.
But the secretary of Warri Wolves, Lawrence Omoghor told The Guardian yesterday that he was not aware of such amount placed on Etebo saying: “The Delta State Sports Commission just got a new management and as far as the secretariat of Warri Wolves is concerned, we are not aware of such amount of money placed on any player. Maybe, by next week, the picture will get clearer,” Omoghor said in a telephone chat yesterday.
Etebo was stand-out performer as Nigeria clinched the U-23 AFCON in Senegal last week.
