Despite repeated pleas by Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung on behalf of Super Eagles Head Coach, Sunday Oliseh, the leadership of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF appears defiant insisting that any future outburst by the coach won’t be tolerated.
Rising from its executive committee meeting, the NFF board further reviewed the outing of Nigeria’s Super Eagles at the recently concluded 4th African Nations Championship and persistently rebuked Oliseh over his unwarranted statement.
“Executive Committee approved the recommendation of the Technical and Development Committee that the backroom staff of the various National Teams be reconstituted immediately, with the exception of the Super Eagles.
The communiqué issued at the end of their meeting in Abuja however mandated Oliseh t henceforth defend his program before NFF technical committee.
The content of the communiqué reads, “In line with global best practices, the Committee decided that Coach Oliseh must henceforth report to the NFF General Secretary and the Technical and Development Committee, and should be ready to defend his entire program before the Committee, including invitation of players and training programs.
“In consonance with its determination to find a holistic solution to the dwindling fortunes of the Senior Women National Team, Falcons, Committee approved the recommendation of the Technical and Development Committee for the appointment of A competent expatriate Coach, within the shortest possible time, for the team. The expatriate Coach will be assisted by former Super Falcons’ Captains, Florence Omagbemi, Perpetua Nkwocha and Ann Chiejine, with Bala Mohammed as Goalkeeper Trainer.
“Omagbemi will head the crew in the acting capacity in the meantime.
“The Executive Committee also approved a recommendation by the Technical and Development Committee for processes to be put in place for the training, grading and certification of all categories of football coaches in Nigeria.
“The program, which would be run in conjunction with a Consultant to be approved by the Executive Committee, will commence once approval is secured from the Confederation of African Football.
“The Committee approved a recommendation by the NFF Referees Committee for the introduction of Referee Assessor for matches of the Nigeria National League from this season.”
