Brendan Ogbu still waiting for MVP prize money in the Federation Cup final against Lobi Stars

The Naze Millionaires' striker says he has done all within his powers to get his money after the final game but to no avail as the organizers have not kept to their words
Heartland striker, Brendan Ogbu has declared that he is yet to get his money for emerging the most valuable player in the final game of the Federation Cup against Lobi Stars.

The former Rangers attacker scored the winning goal that gave the Naze Millionaires a 2-1 victory over Lobi and was declared the MVP of the game with a prize of N250,000.

An enraged Ogbu told that all his effort to get the money has proved abortive.

"I have tried my best and contacted all the people I need to speak to. But it is like some people have decided that I will not get the money," Ogbu said.

"Most times I look at the way things are done in this country and I wonder whether we can improve in everything we do. I did not choose myself as the most valuable player in that match.

"I did my best for my team and was not in any way thinking of emerging the MVP until I heard my name after the match. Since the final match took place, I am still battling to see who will give me the money.

"It is not fair because these are little things that will never encourage any player to put in his best. It is not as if the money is much, but I have worked for it and I deserve to get it.

"I have decided that I will not call anybody again. If they want, then they know where to get me, but it will never disturb me from concentrating to give my best to my Heartland anytime the Nigeria Premier League begins and also in the Confederation Cup.

"I know that God will definitely make a way for me in other areas," Ogbu said.
