Abuja- John Obuh, Nigeria's under 20 coach, has officially resigned from the position following the team's bowing out of the World Cup.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed they received the resignation from the coach's agents.
NFF general secretary, Musa Amadu, however said the organisation had not decided whether to accept the resignation.
"I can confirm that we have received coach Obuh's resignation letter. However we will have to study it and and decide on whether we accept his resignation,” Amadu said.
He praised Obuh for his positive contribution to the junior teams' fortunes.
" Obuh is a great coach and has a very bright future ahead of him. He has handled the under 17 team and taken them to the World Cup and has twice led the under 20's to the World Cup, so I think he has given a lot," Amadu said.
Nigeria’s Flying Eagles lost 2-1 to Uruguay in a Last 16 match to exit the World Cup.
