If that administration was selfish as you’re doing now, you probably would not have had the opportunity to market your biggest asset.” he fumed on his facebook page.The Black Satellites secured qualification to the 2021 Africa Youth Championship in Mauritania after a 5-3 penalty win over Niger.But the win has been overshadowed by accusation of influence peddling after several quality players were reportedly dropped to make way for “business call-ups”.
