She said any player found to be involved in lesbianism will be disqualified from participating in the league and also barred from representing the national team.

Onyedinma told Premium Times: "Any player that we find is associated with it will be disqualified.

"We will call the club chairmen to control their players, and such players will not be able to play for the national team."

She added: "Llesbianism is happening but we have to talk to the clubs, and look inside the clubs and these things have to do with clubs.

"There are particular clubs that don't even want to hear about it and once they heard it the players involved will be sacked."

Onyedinma's comments come two years after Super Falcons coach Eucharia Uche declared that the team were performing better because she had rid the squad of lesbians.
