NFF Picks Amodu, Salisu As Super Eagles Interim Managers
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said on Wednesday that Shaibu Amodu, the Technical Director of the NFF and Salisu Yusuf would take charge of the Super Eagles on interim basis.
This was part of the decisions taken after Wednesday’s meeting of the NFF Technical Committee which took place at the NFF secretariat.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the appointment would see the coaches lead the Eagles to the two international friendlies against Mali and Luxembourg national team on May 27 and June 1 respectively.
Yusuf would take charge of the team, while Amodu would supervise.
Imama Amapakabo, coach of Rangers International FC of Enugu and Kennedy Boboye, the coach of Abia Warriors FC of Umuahia, were appointed to assist, while Aloy Agu remained the goalkeeper trainer.
The match against Mali would take place at the Stade Robert Diochon in Rouen, France, while Luxembourg would host the Eagles in Luxembourg.
Chris Green, Chairman, NFF technical committee told NAN that the Super Falcons qualification and preparation for the 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCN) and the Dream Team VI Olympics preparation, were also discussed.
Green, who failed to give further clarification on the meeting, said that he needed to get the permission of his boss Amaju Pinnick, to give full details of their meeting.
“I have to get clearance; most likely, if you call me this evening after we have talked to ourselves, then I can now release it.
“It will not be right for me to release it without clearance; it is against our procedure.
“What we do is for the board to see it first and then agrees or throws it away.
“I will be speaking with Mr President, let him now coordinate his people and I will be able to tell release the outcome,’’ Green said. (NAN)
