NFF to unveil Sanfiet, Ikhana, Obuh next week

After several postponements and uncertainties, General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation, Musa Amadu has disclosed that the new technical director, Super Falcons, and Flying Eagles coaches would be announced next week  .

Mr. Amadu stated that the board members would  use the opportunity of the public hearing on NFF bill that is being organized by the House of Representatives committee on sports to meet so as to ratify the recommendations of the technical committee which the board could not deliberate on at their last meeting which was short lived.

Mr. Amadu further disclosed that the NFF president, would alongside the minister and Director General of the National Sports Commission, leave for  Zurich Thursday night  to  brief  FIFA president, Joseph Blatter, and to formalize the peace agreement that was signed on Tuesday.

“Honestly i have so many files on my table which i am supposed to attend to since Monday, but because of the case at hand, I had to abandon them and concentrate on the task of bringing this crisis to an end and we are all happy that it has been laid to rest today. The whole thing also delayed all the appointments that were supposed to be made this week.

” But the board will use the opportunity of the public hearing on Monday to meet briefly and deliberate on the recommendations of the technical committee which will lead to the appointment of a technical director as well as coaches for the Super Falcons and the Flying Eagles, since they will all be available during the public hearing,”  Mr. Amadu said.

The NFF technical committee had recommended former coach of Ethiopia and Namibia, Tom Sainfiet, for the position of technical director, while coaches Kadiri Ikhana and John Obuh were recommended for the Super Falcons and national Under-20 team respectively
