She confirmed that a number of players are already getting worried about their eligibility because of what a two year span will mean for them.
“I’m not happy about that news when I heard about it, many players their passport is ready now but we have to start all over again now when they ask us to resume back. People are just talking about their passport knowing that they will be more than 20 years when they ask us to come back. So they are just bitter about it. Everything God understand, I won’t call it setback, we should just keep on working.”
