Former Super Eagles’ coach, Adegboye Onigbinde has expressed a different view to the aftermath of Nigeria and Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi’s failure to land CAF’s topmost award in a gala ceremony on Thursday night.
Onigbinde insists Yaya Toure deserved the award noting that there was no form of bias in the voting process.
“There is no cause for bias in this case because people who are voting are selected from different countries on the African continent with the assessment a cumulative one”
“When you talk about a player, there are a lot of things that you look into like intellectual fitness for football, response to issues, character, Psychological status, tactical, technical and so forth”
“It is possible for one player to be good in one aspect and be bad in another but at the end of the day, the aggregate will determine what happens” the FIFA instructor said.
