Taye Taiwo claims that some Nigerian players offer coaches gifts, so they can be selected
Taye Taiwo has claimed that some Nigerian players offer coaches gifts, so they can be selected for the national team.
“Unlike others, I didn’t offer gifts to the Nigeria coach to be selected,” he told Football Africa 365. “Unfortunately, it’s still happening.”
Now 30 years of age, the former Queens Park Rangers and AC Milan man, says he will never give anyone gifts to feature for the Super Eagles.
“I’m not going to be some who owe their selection of gifts to the coach,” he insisted.
The left-back has terminated his contract with Turkish club Bursaspor because of unpaid wages and is in France looking for a new club.
Taiwo said: “The French league is my favorite, it’s my adopted country and my city Marseille. I would love to return, I spent my best moments, my family, my friends are there. I remain a strong supporter of OM. If Jean-Claude Dassier had been able to manage a football club, I would still be in Marseille.”
