Transfer saga: Warri Wolves defend Keshi

The talks around town that Super Eagles Coach Stephen Keshi as well as the Delta State Sports commission Chairman Pinnick Amaju were the hands behind the recent failed move of Super Eagles star Sunday Mba to French side Bastia.

Speaking on behalf of the club in press statement made available to, Moses Etu the media officer for Warri said such allegations were not true.


- We are not really surprised by this unfounded story making the rounds because we long knew this will come from some desperate people who were hell bent on benefiting from the deal when in actual fact, they have nothing to do with Warri Wolves Football Club and Super Eagles player, Sunday Mba.

- We make bold to say that Coach Stephen Keshi has no hand in what happened in our efforts to help Mba find a club that befits him, the statement continued.

-We therefore enjoin the public to be cautious of those peddling rumours and to contact Warri Wolves for any concrete information not only on Sunday Mba but any other player.

It is our candid opinion that these set of people will be disappointed when Sunday Mba finally leaves the shore of this land to begin a career.


- It is very unfortunate that some people could so be desperate to want to do things that they cannot. It is an open secret that a certain soccer ambassador has been working with some unscrupulous elements in Enugu to reap where they did not sow, the statement continued.

Mba returned to the country after his move to France second division side fell through.
