Daily Metro News NG
The Nigeria Football Federation ( NFF) has on Thursday evening sacked the entire technical crew of Nigeria National Team (the Super Eagles) following their failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The Super Eagles on Tuesday March 29th, lost the West African ticket to Black Stars of Ghana in a 1-1 draw at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja with the visitors going through on away-goal rule.
But earlier today, the interim chief coach, Augustine Eguavoen resigned from his position to fall back to his role as Technical Director.
But a statement on Thursday by the NFF Secretary General, Dr Mohammed Sanusi said the glass house has wielded the big stick against the technical crew of the Super Eagles.
It reads: “The NFF has in the meantime withdrawn the two-and-half years contract offered the coaches and terminated the appointment of the entire technical crew of the team with immediate effect.
“A new crew will be announced after a proper review to lead the new charge of reinvigorating the Super Eagles to face future challenges appropriately.
“We thank the coaches and team officials for their service to the nation and wish them success in their future endeavours.”
