Former Super Eagles  defender Taribo West has  revealed how he and his national teammates sneaked women  into camp during national assignments.

The former Inter- Milan centre-back turned pastor  said it was rampant during his days  as a footballer but said  he could only talk about it since he is  now a born-again Christian.

According to sport extra, Taribo revealed that this was a regular occurrence during his playing days with the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

In his words “Sometimes we (the players) will import ladies from other countries and keep them in different hotels. As the competition progressed, more ladies would keep coming and going. It’s something we all did but my teammates won’t talk about it. I can talk about it now because I’ve given my life to Christ,”

“We normally kept the girls in different locations, but once everyone was asleep, around 2am, we would bring them into our hotel rooms. It happened in every tournament we competed in, from the Africa Cup of Nations to the World Cup.

“We had a teammate who the other players waited for to bring in his girl first, because he always had fine women. Once we saw the shape and height of his girl, we would call our own boys to go out and negotiate for girls more beautiful than this player’s own. It was more like a competition for women amongst us then.

“We had crazy guys in the team but there was discipline, that’s why we had to sneak the ladies into camp.”

Taribo was part of the Olympic team that won gold at the Atlanta 1996. He also represented the Super Eagles 42 times  between 1994 and 2005, played at the 1998 and 2002 World Cups and the 2000 and 2002 Africa Cup of Nations.
