Maigari blasts Malian FA over age-cheats

Alhaji Aminu Maigari, President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has taken a swipe against the Malian Football Federation (NFF) for allegedly parading ‘old men’ as teenagers against the Golden Eaglets in Sunday’s 2013 Under-17 African Junior Championship qualifier in Calabar

Maigari, a member of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Organising Committee for the African Nations Championship, said the action of the Malian FA is inimical to the overall development of football on the continent, adding that the NFF would follow the protest against the eligibility of such clearly over-aged players in a cadet competition to a conclusive end.
