How Amokachi Shorunmu Scuttled My 2013 AFCON Dreams Lawal
Super Eagles midfielder, Raheem Lawal has accused the duo of Daniel Amokachi and Ike Shorunmu of sabotaging his dream of playing at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
Lawal made this allegation via his official Instagram handle, where he alleged that Amokachi, who was an assistant coach to late Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi preferred to select a player he could easily sell at the tournament.
He also blamed Shorunmu for not playing a brotherly role during the whole incident as they both came from Idi-Oro in Mushin, Lagos.
“Amokachi you denied me the MON title in 2013 AFCON. I still got the pain in my heart forever.
“Amokachi you dropped me last minute of 2013 AFCON because you want (sic) to sell some players to Super Eagles.
“But remember that your children have started playing football. Keep resting in peace big boss Keshi.
“The funniest part is that they called the list three times because Amokachi wants (sic) me out from the squad.
“Even the Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer Ike Shorunmu from Idi Oro Mushin could not fight for me.
“Local Mushin boy and only Yoruba for (sic) the squad then who have (sic) nobody in the team then.”
