The Nigeria Football Federation has commiserated with the Management and Players of Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan over the death of the club’s General Manager, Mr Rasheed Balogun.
Balogun, a highly experienced and respected club administrator, died in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Thursday night.
General Secretary of the NFF, Dr Mohammed Sanusi said: “It is with heavy hearts that we have learned of the passing on of Rasheed Balogun, someone we have known over the years as an energetic, dedicated and charismatic club administrator. He was passionate about the game and was a frontline actor in the country’s domestic game for several decades. His death at this time is heartbreaking.
“On behalf of the entire Nigeria Football family, we pray for the repose of his soul and that God will grant those he has left behind, including the 3SC family, the fortitude to bear the big loss.”
Nigeria’s caretaker manager Augustine Eguavoen has stressed that he might change tactics to ensure the Super Eagles are victorious in Sunday’s 2021 African Cup of Nations Round of sixteen tie against Tunisia.
