Babangida Plays Down Sacking As Oliseh’s Personal Assistant 

By Bamidele Boluwaji:



Former Super Eagles winger Tijani Babangida has told Completesportsnigeria.com that he bears no grudge against anyone at the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, or elsewhere despite his disengagement from the senior national team.



The FA rose from its meeting in Abuja on Wednesday to announce their decision to sack the former Ajax Amsterdam of Holland star from serving as Super Eagles Coach, Sunday Oliseh’s Personal Assistant. The Technical and Development Committee of the NFF had unanimously approved the recommendation,  and General Secretary was therefore mandated to follow the due process in effecting Babangida's disengagement.


Babangida while speaking  to Completesportsnigeria.com said the reason for his disengagement was not clear to him but since it was the decision of the football house, he accepted it in good faith, and said he will always pray for the progress of the country’s football.


“Serving in the national team, mostly with Sunday Oliseh has been a privilege for me and I am happy for that. I have no details of my disengagement for now, but I must say that I bear no grudge against anybody at the FA or elsewhere, and I will always be happy to serve my country anytime I am called upon,” Babangida told Completesportsnigeria.com.


“I really don’t see this situation affecting my love or passion for the game, it is like the job of coaches which comes and goes. So as a Nigerian, I will always be happy to serve my nation.‎"


Babangida, it would be recalled was part of the team to the recently held CHAN tournament in Rwanda where the Super Eagles failed to go beyond the first round.


Meanwhile, Completesportsnigeria.com gathered from a source that the FA is doing everything possible to reduce its work force in the wake of lack of funds to execute its programmes.
