Former Super Eagles defender, Taribo West has shared one of the unethical practices that he and some other players on the team used to engage in whenever they are on training camps.
Taribo, who is now a clergyman, described how they would ask ladies of different nationalities to come into their training facilities as early as 2 am in the morning while coordinating officers were asleep.
In the interview which was conducted by Sports extra, Taribo mentioned, “Sometimes we will import ladies from other countries and keep them in different hotels. As the competition progressed, more ladies would keep coming and going. It’s something we all did but my teammates won’t talk about it. I can talk about it now because I’ve given my life to Christ.
“We normally kept the girls in different locations, but once everyone was asleep, around 2 am, we would bring them into our hotel rooms. It happened in every tournament we competed in, from the Africa Cup of Nations to the World Cup.”
Taribo equally discussed how they used to use a particular player’s concubine to determine the ladies they would order for.
He said, “We had a teammate who the other players waited for to bring in his girl first because he always had fine women. Once we saw the shape and height of his girl, we would call our own boys to go out and negotiate for girls more beautiful than this player’s own. It was more like a competition for women amongst us then. We had crazy guys in the team but there was discipline, that’s why we had to sneak the ladies into camp.”
