Is this why Mudashiru Obasa didn’t look excited to receive Asisat Oshoala?

Super Falcons star striker, Asisat Oshoala, visited Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, in his office on March, 1.

The state chief lawmaker took some pictures with the 21-year-old who was then on the payroll of Liverpool Ladies.

Tried as he could, the Lagos State University Law graduate could not force himself to smile at the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup highest goal scorer.

His inability to show any form of excitement might be because Asisat played for the female arm of a rival club in the English League.

Obasa was at the Agege Stadium on Sunday to watch the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) derby between Ikorodu United Football Club and MFM Football Club.

He had Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode; Special Adviser on Sport to the Governor, Deji Tinubu; Member, House of Representative from Ikorodu, Jimi Benson, and 1st Vice Chairman, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Seyi Akinwunmi, for company.

Conspicuous in his Chelsea jersey, Obasa beamed with excitement and could have won a price for smile of the day.

Asisat could have done with some of that animation during her courtesy visit.

Unfortunately, she now plays for Arsenal, a club Chelsea fans hate more than all other English clubs put together.
