The saga is over btw warri wolves and rangers can now play big time football #God @work” Amaju Pinnick, chairman of the Delta State Sports Commission, which oversees Wolves, told KickOffNigeria.com that the move was initiated by the player and his representatives.“I can tell you that it was the player himself that initiated his return to us and we are happy to have him back,” Pinnick said.“He has realised that as a national team player he needs to begin to play regular club football and that explains how he retraced his steps.”Pinnick declined to give further details, but said Rangers had not met the conditions for keeping the player.“At the initial stage, our release of Mba to Rangers was conditional and it was specifically for their continental assignments. “Even at that they have failed to meet the deadline we issued them for that arrangement to be formalised.”last_img
