Sarki Reveals He Was Asked To Pay £5000 To Play For Nigeria - Plays for Haiti instead

Sarki Reveals He Was Asked To Pay £5,000 To Play For Nigeria

Emmanuel Sarki, a former Nigeria youth international, has revealed why he left the country to play for Haiti.

Sarki shone for the youth teams, including the Golden Eaglets, Flying Eagles, and U-23s.

The Kaduna-born winger appeared destined for the Super Eagles, but he was called up to the Haitian national team in 2014.

This was his first call-up to the Nigerian U-23 team in eight years.

Sarki has now claimed that when he was asked to pay to play for Nigeria, he dropped the idea.

The forward jumped at the chance to represent for the Grenadiers after learning that he was eligible through his maternal grandfather.

"There were people demanding that I pay £5,000 just to ensure that Nigeria called me."
“What? Is it necessary for me to pay to play football for my country? 

No way, I'm not going to do that. But my grandfather had come to Nigeria as a missionary from Haiti, and I had his birth certificate, and there was another Haitian on the team at Wisla who called the Haitian Football Federation president and told him everything," Sarki told the Athletic.

Sarki, on the other hand, has stopped playing football due to his air sickness.

"It was too stressful for me," he added. I apologized and said, "I'm sorry, but I'm done." I'm not interested in traveling that far. I was vomiting on the planes and feeling dizzy".

"It was an honor to represent them, but I'm getting old." I'm 33, I'm taking it easy, and I'm just having fun. My fiancee is Polish, and I have a young son named Samuel. "I've returned home."
