NFF vows never to hire local coaches again!!!



President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has vowed that the country will never employ a local coach again, following the resignation of Sunday Oliseh.

Pinnick was answering questions at the 18th Annual Africa Business Conference of the Harvard Business School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States and stated that the NFF had reached “the last bus stop” in appointing local coaches.

Oliseh replaced Stephen Keshi, who led the Super Eagles to winning the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa and the second round of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The NFF is now looking abroad to hire a new man, while Samson Siasia and Emmanuel Amuneke take charge of the team temporarily.

“After this Sunday Oliseh debacle, we have definitely turned the corner. We are now going to start shopping for a well grounded and qualified foreign coach to tinker the team. Enough is enough,” Pinnick said at the event.

“What we have learnt is that there is a world of difference between being a good coach and being a good manager.”
