FIFA President Gianni Infantino has given an inestimable description of Nigeria’s passion and love for football where he feels that football is more than religion in Nigeria.
The FIFA boss made the submission recently in Lagos Nigeria at the maiden edition of the AITEO-NFF Awards, where he described football as Life in Nigeria.
“I was told that in Nigeria football is passion, but it is a lie because it is more than that. In Nigeria I was told that football is love, but it is a lie it is more than that.
“In Nigeria, I was told that football is a religion, but it is a lie. It is more than that. In Nigeria, football is life,” he said on Monday, February 19, 2018.
The AITEO-NFF Awards was organised by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and bankrolled by oil giants AITEO Group who have set up a standard for Nigerian corporate organizations.
