Racist Attack: Super Eagles Star Backs Sister
Blood they say is thicker than water and that best explains the unflinching support Super Eagles forward, Sone Aluko is ready to give her sister, Eniola at this critical time.
Eniola has been at the center of a racist slur by a former coach of the England Women's team, Mark Sampson.
The Nigerian-born star said she was initially told her allegations against Coach Sampson had no merits due to lack of evidence, however, the FA in England have since eaten their words and offered an apology.
Eniola, 30, said she felt "vindicated and relieved" by the new findings but accused English football's governing body of behaviour "bordering on blackmail" and an agenda to protect Sampson and its own reputation.
Eniola also said the FA was "dismissive" when she first claimed Sampson told her to make sure her Nigerian relatives did not bring the Ebola virus to the friendly against Germany at Wembley in November 2014.
It is interesting to note that while Sone opted to play for Nigeria, Eniola opted the other way to play for England and she has done quite well for herself with over 100 caps to her name.
