“The feelers I’m getting from South Africa regarding Nwabali are not encouraging and I want to advise that he should not go back to Chippa United after the Afcon,” the Nigeria football administrator told the Nation Sports.

“Some would say it was just football but the signals I’m getting from South Africa about Nwabali are not so positive.

“If possible, he can forget going back to Chippa United and train with any of our top clubs either Enyimba United or Rivers United before he can find a new club.
