- Emmanuel Sarki has claimed he was asked to pay bribe
- Sarki stated that Super Eagles coaches told him that in 2014
- That was when Nigeria were about to travel to Brazil for World Cup
Ex Nigerian footballer Emmanuel Sarki has made a stunning allegation against the former coaches in the Super Eagles claiming that he was asked to pay the sum of £10,000 to get a call up.
Sarki's allegation comes hours after Chinedu Obasi also alleged that he was dropped from the 2014 Super Eagles World Cup team because of his failure to pay coaches bribe.
Although these two players failed to mention names of the coach or coaches who asked them to pay bribe, but it will be recalled that late Stephen Keshi was in charge of the Super Eagles then.
Keshi who also captained the Super Eagles as a player took the team to the 2013 African Cup of Nations in South Africa where Nigeria won the title.
That great performances from the Super Eagles made the NFF to give Stephen Keshi the chance to take the team to the 2014 World Cup where Nigeria got to the knock out stages.
Emmanuel Sarki who is now playing for the Haiti national team explained on Liberty Radio in Kaduna that the allegation Chinedu Obasi made was true because he was also told the same.
''While I was in Poland Wisla Krakow, my club's president spoke with the national team coaches inviting them to come and watch me in which he was asked to pay for the flight tickets.
''I was now called by the same people my club contacted and was told I should pay £10,000 if I want to be invited that coming to watch me was not enough,'' Sarki explained on the show handled by Mowiz.

Since Emmanuel Sarki decided to be playing for Haitian national team, nothing special has been heard about him because the country hardly qualify for global competition.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Super Eagles defender Ola Aina made it clear that it was not an easy decision for him to ignore England national team and settled for three-time African champions Nigeria.
Ola Aina was born in England to Nigerian parents and has played in the youth ranks for England in which there was high hope that he would choose the Three Lions.
But Ola Aina snubbed playing for the country where he was born and decided to play for his parents' nation which is Nigeria.
