The senior special assistant to the governor of osun state on sport development Mr Vincent Akinbami has said that the madness of signing players every year and just allowing them to go for free is gone.
Any club coming for our players should be ready to buy them offf and pay straight into the club account or risk issues with the club and LEAGUE board.
Speaking with some selected journalist,he said bad practices of players transfers as affected movement of cash flow within the football sector.
“A player will sign a three year contract and move to another club and you will hear the club officials and coaches telling you he as gone on loan with no money coming to the club after paying his salary regularly.
It is a different thing if the club terminate the contract of the players with mutual understanding.
He called on the league clubs and especially government owned clubs to monitor the number of players signed , their contract and movement of the players.
“When signing,clubs should sign the right players that will be of benefit, play for years for them and of financial good to their clubs with few experience players.
Untill the right thing is done,money will not circulate in the football sector or be entering the pocket of club officials.
He laid emphasis on proper accounting for football clubs and the training of club officials and accountant on preparation for financial statement for football clubs.
He rounded up by saying that,with the right environment ,osun United will lay the foundation” our governor Alhaji isiaka oyetola is open to the right thing to be done and that the commissioner for sport Yemi lawal and Special Adviser to the governor Alh Adegboyega lateef Aremo are all open to the changes.
