Is Fashanu Reaping Where He Did Not Sow?

John Fashanu who was called to play for the Super Eagles in his own days but refused to heed the clarion call started by coming down to Nigeria when he was outta reckoning to obtain a chieftaincy title sometimes ago.

Right now is claiming to be running a football academy which he intends to go on air.This academy is being sponsored by Oceanic bank which means he is smiling to the bank and that would most be in millions of naira.

I just feel the guy abandoned his country when it mattered the most and is now shamelessly trying to reap from the same country.

Is anyone agreeing or disagreeing with me in the house?

I marvelled when I hear people say I refused to play for my country, Nigeria. On three different occasions. I came down here but I was not considered good enough. I felt bad to hear in the local press that John Fashanu shunned his fatherland. How could the press be misinforming people?

I remember I came for a qualifier against Tunisia in the 80s, then the likes of Muda Lawal were still available, I wasn’t selected and it was said that I didn’t come until pictures showed me in company of Lawal, John Chidozie and a couple of others sitting on the bench.

It was frustrating that time, and there was nothing I could do as a player. When people say they don’t want you, then you have got to leave them alone.

Eventually I had two caps with England, against Chile and Scotland in what was then called Reuters Cup. It’s all gone now and you’ve got to put it behind you and try to get on with your life.

I am quoting Fash!

I believe i understand better now that the guy has got good intentions and would likely help push our football forward.

Even if Fash abandonded Nigeria, how many so called patriotic ex-Super Eagles are doing what he is trying to do now, he's one of the few ex-footballers i know who constantly tries to make a difference

leave fash alone, he has paid his dues. people say he abandoned nigeria then. thats not true. learn not to be ignorant. he came to nigeria but he wasnt selected by otto gloria.

so what if he didnt come back.u people will still have something to say about him. many nigerians in his shoes, who have 'comfortable lives' abroad wont even bother to return home.

do u know how many employment opportunities he has created alone.

fash has returned to embrace his people. let him be.
