3SC General Manager Balogun Blast Report Linking Malomo To VIA Football Academy
Shooting Stars Sports Club management have debunked the news making the rounds online about its midfielder, Malomo Taofeek Ayodeji been a product of VIA Football Academy.
The General Manager of the club, Rasheed Balogun has rubbished the report as he insisted that Malomo was signed by Shooting Stars from NNL side Joy Cometh.
According to Balogun, “There is no iota of truth in the report liking Malomo to VIA Football Academy.
“To put the records straight, the attacking midfielder was signed outrightly from Joy Comets before the start of the 2020/21 NNL season.
“We have all his valid documents and none showed VIA Football Academy. So where the writer of the story got his facts from I don’t understand.
“For me, this is just mere distractions. I want to state clearly that Shooting Stars is not ready to negotiate with any agent or persons who wants to parade himself as representative of Malomo as the club made an outright signing of him from his parent club, Joy Cometh.”
He had played for Joy Cometh for two and half seasons before moving to 3SC.
Malomo played a key role for the Oluyole Warriors in in the just concluded Nigeria National League (NNL) scoring seven goals in 20 matches.
At the NNL play-offs in Enugu, Malomo proved his worth getting the equalizing goal in 3SC 2-1 victory over perennial arch-rivals Bendel Insurance and went ahead to help his club gain promotion to the Nigerian Professional Football League(NPFL) after three seasons.
