In Damage Control Overdrive, Ahmed Musa, Victor Moses Deny Snubbing Amaju Pinnick
In what appears a damage control attempt, Victor Moses and Ahmed Musa have denied snubbing President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick in Yaounde, Cameroon recently.
A video showing the arrival of the Super Eagles in Cameroon’s capital city had revealed how the two players appeared to delivery walk past the NFF boss, as if he did not exist, after shaking hands with other officials,
The video showed the incident between Musa and Pinnick first. The Leicester City striker stepped down from the aircraft and went through the motion of greeting the officials who had come to welcome the Super Eagles, but when he reached the end of the line where Pinnick was standing, Musa moved on as if no one was there.
About six other players followed, all shaking hands with the NFF boss, before the Chelsea wing-back, Moses appeared. He also moved on without acknowledging the outstretched hand of Pinnick.
The video ended as Pinnick scratched his arm and left the line as if to avoid further embarrassment.

However, what appeared like an arranged “photo op” video of Pinnick with the duo of Musa and Moses was released showing the players saying they had no problem with Pinnick.
“I don’t know what you guys are talking about, I don’t know what’s going on,” Moses says in the video.
