The Nigeria Football Federation ( NFF) has relieved the entire technical crew of the Super Eagles of their appointments following the failure to the senior national team to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Needing a win to qualify for the mundial, Super Eagles managed a 1-1 draw against their west African rivals, Ghana, at the MKO Abiola Stadium, on Tuesday and lost the ticket to the Black Stars with the FIFA away goal rule.
The interim chief coach Augustine Eguavoen resigned earlier from the position to fall back to his role as Technical Director.
But a statement on Thursday by the NFF Secretary General Dr Mohammed Sanusi informed the glass house has wielded the big stick against the technical crew of the Super Eagles.
It reads: “The NFF has in the meantime withdrawn the two-and-half years contract offered the coaches and terminated the appointment of the entire technical crew of the team with immediate effect.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.”
Those affected are Augustine Eguavoen Technical Director/Technical Adviser; Emmanuel Amuneke, Chief Coach; Salisu Yusuf, 2nd Assistant Coach/Chief Coach of the CHAN team; Joseph Yobo 3rd Assistant Coach, and Aloysius Agu, the Goalkeepers’ Trainer.
