The former Coach of the Super Eagles, Shuaibu Amodu, has commended the Nigeria Football Federation and his former assistant coach, Stephen Keshi, for Nigeria’s victory at the African Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES, the coach praised the current Eagle’s coach, Stephen Keshi, for a job well done job.

“Keshi has been wonderful and I want to give kudos to him. He is actually doing a very good job with the Super Eagles even with the home-based players,” he said.

Reacting to the recent winning streak displayed by the national teams, Shuaibu said, “I’m a very holistic person; a lot of good things has been happening recently and we need to react positively to that. [However,] the issues we really needed to talk about is to see how we arrived here and where we are going from here.

“I’m just waiting for the FA to see how they will articulate it. They have not been able come out to say this is how we arrived here and this where we are going to. Overall, all the National Teams are doing tremendously well.”

Amodu has coached the Super eagles three times: 1998-1999, 2001-2002 and 2008-2010. In 2010, under his direction, the team qualified for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa; but he was axed before the competition.

Recent rumours have linked him to the position of Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation.
