NFF to announce new coach for Super Eagles in two weeks

27 June 2016, 14:43

Ibadan - Amaju Pinnick, the President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), on Sunday in Ibadan said the Super Eagles would have a substantive Head Coach within the next two weeks.

Pinnick told newsmen that the football body was working assiduously to ensure they got a new head coach for the Super Eagles, urging Nigerians to hope for the best.

The NFF President was in Ibadan to watch a 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match.

The NPFL Match Day 24 fixture between hosts Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) and FC IfeanyiUbah Football Club ended in a 2-2 draw.

Pinnick also spoke on the Russia 2018 World Cup Qualifier draws, pointing out that football has come of age and was getting tougher by the day.

“Football has come of age. Peru beat Brazil in Copa America. But I think we have assets that can make the country proud and I believe we will qualify,’’ he said.

The African 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers have the Super Eagles placed in Group B with Cameroon, Algeria and Zambia.

The NFF President said Super Eagles players were excited about facing Algeria and not Egypt, adding that the Federation would do everything possible to support them to qualify.

“We will ensure that we make the difference in all,’’ he said.

Also speaking on the allegation that he was in Ibadan as a guest of FC IfeanyiUbah, Pinnick said he was there to visit his aunt.

“I grew up here and I am a fan of 3SC. I have only come to greet my aunty in Ibadan,’’ he stated.

Pinnick said he was very glad to see football fans come out in their thousands to support 3SC.

“It is a sign of the people’s love for the team and the game,’’ he said.
