“You can’t win the AFCON with that goalkeeper (Uzoho). It’s impossible to be honest and this am saying despite the fact that Uzoho originated from the state where I control most of the youth teams. He is not fit enough to be first choice”, he said.

“Ezenwa is a bit better and his record for the team is decent but he isn’t someone you can rely on. Akpeyi is someone I knew right from his days at Nasarawa United. He’s a goalkeeper who feels like running away from the post whenever the Eagles are under pressure. We’ve a big problem “.
