Former Super Eagles defender - Pastor Taribo West

Former Super Eagle’s defender now Pastor, Taribo West has revealed how girls were often imported into the Super Eagle’s camp during major football tournaments. Pastor Taribo West revealed that girls often flowed from other countries into their camps.

According to Sunday Punch reports, the former AC Milan center-back on retirement from football said importing girls was rampant during his era as a footballer but added he could only talk about it now because he is now a born-again Christian. He also revealed that he and his teammates often compete for who gets the best girl

“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,” Taribo West revealed

“We normally kept the girls in different locations, but once everyone was asleep, around 2 am, 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.”

Globally-acclaimed for his various unusual and colorful hairstyles during his playing days, Taribo featured for French side Auxerre before going on to play for both Milan clubs, Inter and AC.

He also appeared in the top leagues of England (Derby County) and Germany (Kaiserslautern). Internationally, Taribo won gold at the 1996 Olympic Games with the U-23 side.

At the senior level, he had 42 caps for Nigeria between 1994 and 2005, played at the 1998 and 2002 World Cups and the 2000 and 2002 Africa Cup of Nations.
