“We have no issue whatsoever with Asisat [Oshoala] but thoughts of stripping her of the armbard came after Aisha Buhari Cup last September,” the senior official was quoted as saying.
“This is not for anything negative but for troubling concerns of seeing her struggle in national team colours. We and the coach [Waldrum] observed the captaincy is weighing her down and affecting her play. With or without it, we believe she is a true professional player and should not struggle to prove otherwise by delivering on the pitch.”
Coach Randy Waldrum is also said to have consented to remove the captaincy band off the Barcelona star because it was causing her discomfort.
Reacting on social media hours after the news broke out, the former Liverpool star wrote: “LMAO, I’m just hearing this oo but okay.”
