In an exclusive chat with the media officer of Rangers, Foster Chime, disclosed that the dispute has been referred to the Nigeria Football Federation who have consequently set up a committee to resolve the issue.

Chime also disclosed that newly-signed Nigeria international defender Chibuzor Okonkwo has started training with the team along with Super Eagles goalkeeper Chigozie Agbim, who along with Sunday Mba played for Warri Wolves last season.

He further disclosed that Mba who has since distanced himself of any affiliation with Warri Wolves will return to Enugu tomorrow.

Mba who is currently holidaying in Jos is reported to have been approached by more than ten European clubs including English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.

Mba, be careful wt these unprofesional clubs. Clubs that cannot document the selling and buying of players properly, because they dont care. If u are not careful they ll ruin ur carreer for u.

Like I said before "victory has many fathers" Mba is an example of this as two teams are now fighting furiously to claim ownership of him. Now only in Nigerian will there be a confusion about such things. For a professionally run league a player does not move to another team until all the paper works have been signed and approved by the league office. All these signing are done in the presense of an attorney and the player's agent. It shows how poorly run the Nigerian league is.
Football is a commodity in the rest of the world as mcuh as say cars clothes etc. an as such it is run as a business with the aim of making money. Three of the biggest business in the world are sports team, Nwe York Yankees, Manchester United and I think Barcelona they are worth billions.
Nigeria has a chance to make football a big business but like we did with the oil business we manage to screw it up. Mainly because we have robbers in charge of these business. It is really a shame. Africans love to watch euopean football to the extent it is affecting the local football attendance. The same goes to every aspect of our lives. We enjoy what other countries have to offer but cant dupplicate it in our own country. There is the saying"charity begins at home" Until Africans as a people start to look within themselves to solve their own problemswe will remain the poorest continent in the world.
