Rangers, Wolves Fight Over Mba  print

Published on February 22, 2013 by   ·   No Comments

Rangers have declared that AFCON hero, Sunday Mba, is their bonafide player contrary to the claims by Warri Wolves, where he last played.

Mba, who scored the championship winner in the final against Burkina Faso, is bound for an overseas club soon.

Warri Wolves have maintained the overseas-bound Mba is their player, but Rangers have now come out to dismiss the claim.

Enugu State FA boss, Chidi Ofor Okenwa, said Mba has always been a player of Rangers as he was sent on loan to Dolphins in the first instance.

“We don’t have to start joining issues with Warri Wolves on who owns Sunday Mba. Any contractual agreement of a player is with the state FA, and that is Delta State Football Association. Like when Mba joined Rangers from Enyimba, he was duly registered in Enugu State FA and his papers are still on my table,” said Okenwa.

“Even his loan deal with Dolphins was duly documented.”

“Warri Wolves are crying wolf. We don’t have any business with them because Mba is a registered player of Rangers. He joined us from Enyimba, then we loaned him to Dolphins, who in turn loaned him to Warri Wolves without our consent,” added Rangers media officer Foster Chime.

“We don’t have to start joining issues with Wolves, who have started crying wolf as their name goes.  Mba is our player. A player has the right to say where he wants to play and Mba has come out to say he wants to play in Rangers.

“Rangers even gave him transport fare to Abuja to team up with the Eagles before they left for Faro camp in Portugal. He was training with us, his Honda Accord is parked in our Enugu camp and I know he will be glad to be with us,” he said.
