No bias just optimism!

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has explained that there was no nepotism behind its decision to take on a temporary coach for the national U15 team.

The NFF also denied reports that it has decided to ‘share coaching positions in the various National Teams among their friends and cronies.’

Chairman of the NFF Technical and Development Committee, Chris Green says no member of the NFF's management forwarded names of coaches to him as an individual, or the Technical and Development Committee as a body, for employment.

“As for the U15 National Team, that team and the U13 National Team are NOT full National Teams in the real and active sense of the word, as they do not participate in any FIFA, CAF or WAFU competitions. They are GRASSROOTS projects for the discovery of talents into the main National Teams.”

Green said the Technical and Development Committee decided at its last meeting to enroll a number of coaches to take charge of the U15 National Team for an upcoming tour of Morocco, where the team will play a couple of friendly matches.

“As part of a recent agreement between the NFF and the Federation Royal Marocaine de Football, the U15 boys were invited for a couple of games with the Morocco U15 team in the framework of youth development initiative. The persons so appointed are well aware they are to take charge of only the tour of Morocco. Nothing has been decided on permanent basis", he explained.
