Asisat Oshoala reacts to NFF’s stripping her of Super Falcons captaincy

After being stripped of her Super Falcons captaincy on Thursday, April 7th, Super Falcons striker, Asisat Oshoala has reacted.

Ahead of the double-header friendlies against Canada, the Barcelona Femeni superstar was  stripped of Super Falcons captaincy by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

According to SportNewsAfrica an NFF senior official, revealed that the decision on Oshoala wasn’t taken in bad faith but in order to help the attacker rediscover her form with the Super Falcons.

“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 also reportedly agreed to take off the captaincy band from the Barcelona star as it had been taking a toll on her.

Reacting on social media hours after the news broke out, the former Liverpool star wrote: “LMAO, I’m just hearing this oo but okay.”

Oshoala was named Super Falcons captain in September 2019 by Chris Danjuma after captain of the team at the time, Desire Oparanozie was stripped off her armband following a contention with the NFF.

Super Falcons veteran Onome Ebi is reported to be the new captain and she’ll be assisted by Francesca Ordega.
