The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has disengaged the technical crew of the Super Eagles, the nation’s men’s football team.
This was disclosed by the NFF via a statement issued and signed by its General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi on Thursday.,
The football governing body explained that the decision was taken due to the failure of the team to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. It stated, “Following the failure of the Super Eagles of Nigeria to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the erstwhile Technical Adviser, Augustine Eguavoen has stepped down from that position with immediate effect.
“The NFF has in the meantime withdrawn the two-and-half years’ contract offered the coaches and terminated the appointment of the entire technical crew of the team with immediate effect.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.”
