Nimely Receives Bility's Text Message, But---
Manchester City fringe forward Alex Nimely says he has
received a text message from Liberia Football Association
(LFA) president Musa Bility, promising to speak to his
father on the player coming over to play for Liberia and as
well going through the process required by world football
governing body FIFA.
"I am just from Spain where i travelled with my team( Man
City) for the UEFA Champions league match with Real Madrid
which we lost 2-3. "I just put on my phone and saw Musa
Bility's text message, stating that he was going to speak
with my father for the process that would make me play for
my native land, Liberia to begin".
Nimely then went on to say he would check with his father
Mr. Tchuimeni to ascertain as to whether the LFA president
spoke with him.
"The process of going to FIFA takes a lot of time, sometimes
months", Alex hinted.. He also noted that though he followed
the Victor Moses issue which led him to return in playing
for his native land Nigeria, the process took months and is
not just a few days as others would think".
The former Mighty Barrolle hit-man also said up to present
the Ghanaian FA is yet to conclude the FIFA process that
would make Arsenal FC hardworking midfielder Emmanuel
Frimpong return to play for Ghana. "I played with Frimpong
on the youth level for England, and i have being folowing
the activities relative to the Ghananain FA getting in touch
with FIFA to enable him play for Liberia, up till now things
have not been concluded".
Nimely noted that the LFA must speed up things, and with the
crunch match with Nigeria being October 13, which is less
than a month away, he is worried and is in some doubt as to
whether he will be eligible or cleared by FIFA to play the
match as the process is very lengthy.
"I will speak with my father to find out whether the LFA
have started any thing as it regards them going to FIFA to
make me play for my country, Liberia. "I know i am destined
to play for the Lone Star, but it requires a long process
which the LFA must be proactive about to ensure that all
will be in time for me to join my colleagues for the Nigeria
duel", Nimely said in a telephone conversation from his base
in Manchester, England.
