NFF promotes Amuneke, sacks Babangida and Oliseh gets final warning.

Nigeria Football Federa­tion (NFF) has issued what could pass for final warning to Super Eagles coach, Sun­day Oliseh. The soccer ruling body stated yesterday that Oliseh must desist from his unwarranted statements un­becoming of a national team coach in both regular and so­cial media .

In a communique by the executive committee of the NFF signed by Vice presi­dent, Seyi Akinwunmi, the committee made it clear that such infractions from Oliseh, would not be tolerated in the future.

While acknowledging his apology, the committee which sat on Tuesday Febru­ary 16 2016 in Abuja, re­solved that henceforth , the senior national team gaffer will defend his call-ups and training programmes before the technical committee.
“In line with global best practices, the committee decided that coach Oliseh must henceforth report to the NFF general secretary and the technical and develop­ment committee, and should be ready to defend his entire programme before the com­mittee, including invitation of players and training pro­grammes,” said the official statement.

The committee in a dra­matic reversal of deci­sions, rewarded Emmanuel Amuneke for leading Nigeria to her fifth U-17 World Cup glory by elevating him to chief coach of the national U-20 team (Flying Eagles).

Amuneke’s promotion to the U-20 cadre , recom­mended by the Technical and Development Committee, was embraced and endorsed by the committee. He is to be assisted by Kabiru Baleria and Emeka Amadi. The committee went a step further, to relieve ex-international Tijani Babangida of his duty as the personal as­sistant to Sunday Oliseh.

Meanwhile, the trio of Flor­ence Omagbemi, Perpetua Nkwocha, and Ann Chiejine have been drafted to the senior national women’s team, Super Falcons with Bala Mohammed as the goalkeeper trainer.
Omagbemi, has been man­dated to head the crew pending the appointment of a compe­tent expatriate coach as recom­mended by the Technical and Development Committee of the NFF.
