Mmadu and Ikidi signs for 1st division club

The Nigerian national team players Maureen Mmadu and Faith Ikidi, who both played for Qbik last year, has signed for 1st division promotion hopefulls Eskilstuna United.
Qbik's chairman Lars-Inge Hallstensson is surprised, but still not. "I knew the player's agent was talking to other clubs, among them Falköpings KIK." Qbik made a deal with the Nigerian FA's general secretary Fanny Amun, that Qbik would take back the players in spite of their contract violation last year. In return, NFA should give financial guarantees. No such guarantees has yet appeared. "This shows that a deal with the Nigerian Football Association isn't worth anything", Hallstensson concludes.
In Eskilstuna, the club's coach Leif Edeborg was just as surprised, when the player's agent contacted him last Thursday. They managed to find sponsors over the weekend and could finalize the deal yesterday. "We've been in contact with Kjell Pettersson [who coached Qbik last year] and he recommended us to sign them. This is players with World Cup and Olympic experience. We are very happy to be able to get them."
