NPFL's Oldest Outfield Player, Rabiu Ali, 39, Trashes Retirement Rumour

Oldest outfield player in the Nigeria Professional Football League, Rabiu Ali, has trashed claims he would be retiring from the game at the end of the season.

The Kano Pillars midfielder, who will clock 40 September 27, in a statement, urged the general public to disregard the news, which he described as unfounded and false.

The statement read: "This is to notify the general public and Gentlemen of the press of an unfounded publication in some media that I will quit active football by the end of the season. Such publication are UNFOUNDED and FALSE..

"I want to call on the media to disregard the information as it is baseless. I'm still active and dedicate myself to the success of my Team Kano Pillars FC.

"I want to call on our youth to always discourage the spread of FAKE NEWS.. 

"God bless Kano Pillars FC. God bless You All."

Nicknamed Pele, Rabiu, who is arguably the best midfield player in the Nigerian elite division in the last decade, is the current captain of Kano Pillars F.C, where he has spent all his senior career since 2011, stringing up honours and making the revered number 10 shirt his exclusive preserve.

He has been capped 18 times by Nigeria, with five goals to his name.
