Stakeholders including ex-internationals and coaches have been reacting to the raging impasse between Nigeria Football Federation, NFF and Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Keshi as well as Captain Vincent Enyeama.
Former Super Eagles player, Patrick Mancha, faulted the country’s football body for their approach in handling matters that concern members of the country’s senior team.
Accusing NFF board particularly their Disciplinary Committee of being overzealous, Mancha who is currently the head coach of Plateau United maintained that any issue relating to any member of a national team should be treated internally.
Keshi and Enyeama were recently summoned by Chris Green-led NFF’s Disciplinary Committee while Keshi was asked to explain how or why he applied to coach Ivory Coast National team. Enyeama was also queried for his purported uncomplimentary remarks ahead of first 2017 Nation’s Cup qualifier against Chad in Kaduna.
Mancha who spoke to Nigerian Pilot Sports wondered: “I can’t believe somebody of his caliber or repute, having a job at hand can go out to do that. I stand to disagree with that. Even if that was the case, the federation should have treated it internally in other to get their fact before blowing it open to the public.
He, however, condemned statement credited to Enyeama adding “for a captain of a national team to go on air and make such pronouncement, honestly he is wrong but I think NFF approach is completely wrong for them to blacklist someone without hearing from him in the name of discipline.”
