Oparanozie reveals why she was removed as Falcons captain

Super Falcons forward Desire Oparanozie addressed some key issues concerning her captaincy and eventual removal among other things during a live interview with Lagos-based Brila FM during the week.

Reflecting on her brief captaincy of the Falcons, Oparanozie suggested she had a run in with the top brass of the Nigeria Football Federation.

She said people in the FA don’t like to be confronted when players have genuine concerns that should be addressed.

Oparanozie insists the period in question had taught her some very valuable lessons, but does not rule out the chance of returning to the team in the future.
