November 21 21:11 2021

The Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development Alhaji Ismail Abubakar has directed the NFF to submit the Technical Report of the last phase of the 2021 World Cup qualifiers to the Ministry.

“The report must be on the table of the Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development on Monday, the 22nd of November, 2021,” the PS said in a statement.

The Super Eagles have qualified for the playoff phase of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Africa but the performance of the team has left a lot to be desired.

A top Sports Ministry source said, “The NFF knows that any plan to hire another coach must start with first briefing the Minister /FG about the Rohr issue and bringing a closure to it to avoid embarrassing Nigeria.

“Secondly. The decision to hire any body as national coach must be discussed and undergo review.

Added to this, the Sports Ministry is looking at the possibility of paying the salaries of our National team coaches henceforth.

The honourable minister of youth and sports, Sunday Dare will make a proposal to government once a new coach is employed and agreement will be reached on how government can offset the salaries of the new coach.

The ministry insist that the National team belongs to Nigeria and not any one individual and that henceforth, they want to be fully involved in matters that concerns the welfare and wellbeing of our expatriate coach.

“The Super Eagles is Nigeria’s property not a premier club.”
