first_imgNewly appointed technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Shuaibu Amodu has told the out-of-contract chief coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi to honourably resign whatever working relationship he has with the NFF so as to give the country the opportunity to reposition its football.Speaking to journalists in Abuja yesterday, Amodu said his position on the matter was anchored on the fact that ‘a coach is as good as his last game’ hence the former national team captain having failed to qualify the country for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) has no business hanging onto the job.Amodu who described the embattled Keshi as a thoroughbred professional added that retaining him as the Super Eagles coach will send a wrong signal because a precedent had been set when Samson Siasia was sacked after failing to qualify the country for the 2012 AFCON.“I am of this opinion because as a coach you are as good as your last game but only Keshi alone should decide what to do. If he has a reputation he should walk out of the job but if he does not have it, he should hang on to the job. The truth is that he has failed and to keep him is a bad precedent because when Siasia failed instantly, they told the whole country that he had failed and he left and President Jonathan could not save him. What is good for the goose should also be good for the gander. That is my personal opinion”.The former BCC Lions of Gboko tactician further advised that with the failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for the Equatorial Guinea 2015 AFCON, the best option for the NFF is to give the National U-23team, the Dream Team all the support to succeed because the next crop of national team players will come from there.“Let me also advice that the best thing for us is to support the Dream team 6 because that is where our next set of players will come from. I am not saying that we should throw away everybody in the Super Eagles but, that is the way to go” Amodu added. He however revealed that he will be resuming officially as the NFF technical director in the next two or three weeks.–last_img read more

first_imgIndian skipper Mahendra Singh DhoniThe BCCI on Monday said Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s comments on coach Duncan Fletcher is his “personal opinion” after the national team’s captain said that Fletcher still called the shots and would lead them into next year’s World Cup.”I have not spoken to Dhoni and so the BCCI will not like to react to his comments,” said BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel about Dhoni’s comments on the eve of their one-day series against England which appeared to undermine former captain Ravi Shastri.”However, it seemed to me as his personal opinion,” said Patel.Shastri was appointed as director of cricket for the one-day series as part of a coaching shake-up following the 3-1 test series defeat. The appointment had created questions about Fletcher’s role after bowling coach Joe Dawes and fielding mentor Trevor Penney were also given a ‘break’ for the series by the BCCI.Sanjay Bangar and Bharat Arun were made assistant coaches and R. Sridhar named as fielding coach.Shastri who played 80 tests and 150 ODIs for India said after his appointment that the team staff’, including Fletcher, will report to him.The 33-year-old Dhoni who leads India in all three formats and captained the side to their 50-over World Cup victory at home in 2011 however said Fletcher was still firmly in charge.”Definitely he (Fletcher) will lead us into the World Cup,” Dhoni told reporters in Bristol on the eve of the five-match series.”Also he is still the boss. We have Ravi (Shastri) who will look into everything, but Duncan Fletcher is the boss. It’s not as if his powers or his position have been curtailed. I don’t know what you feel from outside, but still operations remain the same. We have a few other support staff who come into the dressing room, but overall the operation remains the same,” said the Indian skipper.advertisementlast_img read more
