Can Amodu Deliver Our Football?
Just heard disturbing news some few minutes ago and i am fuming right now so I decided to vent my anger on my blog.
I am told that everything has been done to ensure that Amodu Shuaibu who has been out of job for a long time heads the Super Eagles. It is rather unfortunate that Amodu that deserted our team and also fail to handle a club with success and also failed to upgrade himself is the on one those that matters in sport is now backing.
And to ensure that the press does not give it the necessary bashing, all the Sports Editors (even those that claim to be critics) were flown into Abuja, camp in a hotel by Patrick Ekeji to rubber stamp and endorse his candidature so that the sporting press won't kick against it.
But that is more dangerous because I know if the man fails to perform the same sporting press will cry foul. They may keep quite for a while but results cannot be faked. He will be named at the end of the NFS Board meeting tomorrow (Thursday).
Lets wait and see o. I know that God will continue to compensate the hard working people Samson Siasia and Stephen Keshi.
After a protracted meeting in Abuja on Monday, the board of the Nigeria Football Association had once again postponed the announcement of a new coach for the Super Eagles until Thursday.
A communique from the meeting on Monday, stated that: "After listening to the presentation of a detailed report from the screening of a number of candidates for the vacant Super Eagles coaching crew positions by the Technical Committee, the Executive Committee unanimously decided to set up a three man committee to make recommendations on a four-man technical crew with the financial implications, contract duration and targets of performance.
"The committee must present its report to the Executive Committee at a meeting on Thursday April 10 which will take a final decision on the issue."
KickOffNigeria.com exclusively reported that the board has already agreed on the personnel for that four man coaching crew, which will be headed by Amodu Shuaibu.
He will be assisted by Daniel Amokachi and Fatai Amoo with Alloy Agu as goalkeeper coach.
Nigeria have been without a coach since Berti Vogts was dismissed following the country's worst Nations Cup performance in 25 years.
We are not ready in this country I tell you and this is very sad.
