The youngster was billed to travel to Abuja, Nigeria for an entry visa to Sweden where he is expected to starts training sessions and trials with the Swedish outfit on 15th February 2016.
He told African Sports Media Network: “This has always been the case whenever our players are going out for trials we seek the FA’s reference letter with an attached document of the club’s invitation and a copy of the players’ passport.”
“To our surprise, exactly two weeks after our request for recommendation, the SLFA secretary sent the same letter to us with a double red stamp at the top and bottom which stated ‘Rejected’”.
Responding on what will be the clubs next move; Robert said they are going to explore all avenues to ensure that the players dream move to Sweden becomes a reality. He added that such move by the Johansen administration will continue to deepen the ongoing problem within the football family.
A senior official from the SLFA secretariat said the decision by the Football Association is connected to the earlier warning that players and officials who are participating in the ongoing football stakeholders ‘National Premier League’ will face punishment.
