Mfon Udoh speaks!

Good morning Guys and welcome to a brand new week.

While thinking of what to share today, I stumbled upon a piece of information that I doubt a lot of you have seen. It’s the theme of this blog today and I’ll give the credit where it is due. It’s courtesy of the guardian.


“Even in a house where you have the father and his children, there is bound to be misunderstanding. What really happened was an in-house thing, which was not properly managed and later got out of hand.

“To God be the glory, the issues had been resolved and everyone has moved on. Inasmuch as I do not want people to know what happened between us, I think it is better to allow the sleeping dog lie,” he said.

“As at the time of the crisis, I was the team’s captain. And if anything goes wrong with the players, it is the captain that is always held responsible. Every player will not just come out to say this is what is going on. I was the messenger of the players because I transfer the messages of the players to the management, coaches on whatever the players have decided. And this boils down to the unpaid salaries, match bonuses and allowances.

“As the team’s captain, it was my duty to pass their message to the management. But the anger of the management was now passed down to me as if it was the messenger. I do not see any reason why the management should do that to me since I was only representing the players on their grievances.

“I was the voice of the players, as the team’s captain because I told them the players’ minds and not mine. There are players, who are far older than me, they have families and definitely I cannot be the one controlling them on so many things concerning them.

“I think the management of Enyimba decided to hold me responsible for something that I didn’t do and it was a misunderstanding on their part. On my suspension, they tried to nail me by looking for possible facts and evidences just to make it look as if I did something to justify their action,” he said.

Make that of what you may. He’s gone. Out the front door. One of these days ahead, I’ll do a timeline of Mfon’s stay at Enyimba. He is a personal friend and just how I felt when Nzube left, I feel horrible that Mfon is leaving/has left. But it doesn’t matter.

That’s all we’ve got to serve here on the blog.

Back tomorrow.

  1. It’s unfortunate, blogger was said that when we are champion in charge, we didn’t take our chances… Enyimba should up their game in everything, including marketing, management, fan opinion issues inta alia…
