The former Super Eagles assistant said in a chat with, said the Football Federation said the choice of Bosso, and Amoo as the head coach is commendable, but he believed they should have been given assistants who are equally experienced.


“The NFF have a way of doing their own thing, but I don’t want to say anything negative against the Federation or any coaches who have been appointed to lead the various national teams, but the only thing i want them to know is that, when you pick a head coach, you also need to pick assistants that be a good back up.”


“Because, sometimes when something happens to the head coach, the assistant might be lost and won’t be able to thinker the team, so the only problem is the assistant they picked for these coaches.”He told
