NON-playing Captain of the Eagles, Nwankwo Kanu and Yakubu Aiyegbeni, have tendered apology to Nigerians over the performance of Sani Kaita and his remorseless action at the mixed zone where he snubbed international press.
But importantly, Kanu wondered why Lagerback refused to use him in a match against Greece where he said that his experience would have saved the Eagles. â€œPlease, forgive Kaita and other players. They have been crying since after the match. They are young players and donâ€™t know the rulesâ€.
Thereafter, he fired â€œI donâ€™t know why this man refused to use me. I should have been brought in as my experience would have helpedâ€.
Yakubu Aiyegbeni also pleaded with the press to forgive Kaita and Obinna Nsofor for snubbing the press.
â€œForgive them because they know not what they did. They donâ€™t know that that singular action can end their careers. Please forgive themâ€, he pleaded.
