Flying Eagles coach Ladan Bosso says he is confident the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will give him the necessary support to enable the national U-20 side to excel in upcoming competitions. 

Bosso, in a chat with,  Bosso said he believes the team will produce the right kind of results provided he gets the full backing of the Football Federation.
“The (Nigeria Football) Federation are there to do the right thing for the coaches to perform, to make the environment comparatively okay for the coaches and players to do well. They have the ability to do that,” he stated.
“And I think we don’t have any reason to give or the NFF have no reason to give not to give us the best of support.
“I’m too confident with these appointments, they know what they (NFF) are looking for, that’s why they called us back.”
The appointments of Bosso and his Golden Eaglets counterpart Fatai Amoo, have been greeted with widespread criticism, with many accusing the NFF of regressing by restoring Bosso to a position he first held in 2007 while the 65-year old Amoo is viewed by many as a tactical dinosaur.
But Bosso believes the experience garnered over the years by himself and Amoo will be very handy for the team and the younger assistant coaches.
“And for people to say ‘these are old coaches, these are that..,” look at the records of the cadet coaches in the previous years,” he said.
“At what age did Fanny Amun win the World Cup, at what age did coach Yemi Tella (56) win the World Cup, at what age did Sebastian Brodericks (47) win the World Cup? Now look at the level they have gone.
“And when you look at the young coaches that came up, some of them did not even qualify (for the World Cup). So, what we are now trying to do is that the NFF is trying to say ‘okay, those people that have enough experience should come and then, most of the assistant coaches that are coming from the grassroots are younger coaches’. So that they can have a long time to learn.”
