Shuaibu Amodu assumes duty as Technical Director of Nigeria Football Federation

Former Super Eagles Coach, Shuaibu Amodu has officially assumed duty as the technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation, as he received his letter of appointment which has been on hold since the regime of the last NFF board.

The letter according to the former Super Eagles coach was dated April 1, 2015.

Amodu said he hopes to operate from the technical centre, FIFA Goal project, Abuja where he will be free to interact with other coaches.

The former Orlando Pirates of South Africa sweat merchant said he was not after the $5,000 that was initially proposed to him as monthly salary, but on how to take the game to the next level in the country with his wealth of experience.

The former BCC Lions coach explained that he would start work by listening to both the administrators and coaches at various levels before making any input.

He added that the gap between the foreign-based players and their home-based counterparts is not much but added that the national team requires a few overseas- based ones to prosecute matches.
