“Thank you for contacting me, I don’t know where the story emanated from,” he said.


“I was shocked when I read the report where they said I impregnated my former president daughter, I left Nove Gorica in 2018 and returned to Nigeria at the end of my contract,” Edafe said.


“I can assure you that all is fine between me and the Club, the president has no daughter, and what we share is purely professional relationship and during my time in Slovenia, we didn’t share anything personal.” He told


“The story is completely false and it must be discouraged”.


Edafe further revealed that he’s on the verge of sealing a move to a club in Cyprus and will get out of the country next month.
