Nigerian coaches blasts Pinnick

PRESIDENT of the Nigeria Football Coaches Association, Bitrus Bewarang has taken a swipe at the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF),
Amaju Pinnick over comments attributed to him that the era of indigenous coaches handling the Super Eagles is over.

Bewarang in a statement issued yesterday criticized the NFF boss over the statement which he noted was not fair to Nigerian Coaches who, according to him, have contributed immensely to the development of the game in the country. 

Pinnick Amaju Bewarang further criticized Pinnick for making the statement even when his NFF only turned to the same Nigerian coaches to salvage the national team in the forthcoming twin 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against the Pharaohs of Egypt this month. 

He also wondered why the same NFF who is crying of shortage of funds as well as having a bad reputation of not obeying the contractual agreement with the indigenous coaches will now be talking of hiring a foreign coach. 

“The attention of the Nigeria Football Coaches Association has been drawn to a statement credited to the NFF President, Amaju Pinnick that enough is enough for Nigerian Coaches in the Super Eagles. We want to say as an Association that that statement from the NFF President was the most unfortunate in the present dispensation. 

“This statement is coming at a time when the present administration is struggling to conserve the little foreign currencies that is available, that is when the NFF leadership is thinking of employing a foreign coach who may not be as competent as those that are based here at home.”
