Former Super Eagles Head Coach Shuaibu Amodu has formally resumed work with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, as the new Technical Director of the country’s National team with a promise to work with all national team coaches.
Confirming this to Nigerian Pilot in Abuja, Amodu who was formerly appointed about two years ago by the Aminu Maigari led board assured of his readiness to work with all teams’ coaches even as he promised not to have anything to do with the invitation of players.
According to him, “My target will be to work for the development of Nigeria football vis-à-vis all the national teams from the U-17 to the top. Whatever input we can give directly or indirectly in terms of technical expertise we will do to ensure that all the coaches get all what they deserve to get in terms of technical support that will bring the best out of their responsibilities.
“Talking about the relationship between me and the coaches with reference to the selection of players, I want to state that it is not in my purview to select players for national team coaches, it is their responsibilities and all I think I need to do is to work with them to ensure that the best is always available to play for Nigeria.”
“My target will be to work for the progress of Nigeria football vis a vis all the national teams from U-17 to the Senior National team, Super Eagles whatever input we can give directly or indirectly to the technical support expert we will do it.”
The ex BCC Lions Sweat Merchant explained he would start work by listening to both the administrators and coaches at various levels before making any input.
Amodu said this would reduce the huge bill usually used in prosecuting matches in the past.
“I think we should go back to Westerhof days when majority of the boys are picked from the local teams with an addition of few foreign based pros”
“I will advise that the home based players are kept together in camp in order to realise our ambitions” he added.
