    Thank God at long last the NFF has released the coaches for the various Age-group teams. However, Nigeria should take note that the appointment is coming a bit late. E.g. the Golden Eaglets will be starting their campaign on the 17th October 2020 which is less than 22days to the Zonal qualifier in Benin Republic. If the Eaglets fail to qualify, we Nigeria should know whom to blame. (i.e. The NFF). Ghana one the opponents, has stated preparation since 15th of September 2020 and the appointment of U17 coaches took place since July, 2020. (Check Ghanasoccernet.com).

  • Same old, same old political appointments. It feels like a throwback to 2007. Lol. Welldone to Phillip Consulting, Pinnick and all the NFF crew for finally being able to discover these “new” and “amazing” coaches with “modern” ideas after 2 years of searching and rigorous interviews. Bravo!

    With all this we should b expecting mediocre team. Anyway this is not a surprise,we are in a country we spend much on our children education outside country in order to become future leaders but at d end of d day we make someone that doesn’t have WAEC result as our number one……..

    When are we going to have young vibrant coaches for the youth teams?

  • No Finidi George,No Daniel Amokachi,No Samson Siasia,No Mutiu Adepoju,No Mike Emenalo,No Sunday Oliseh,No Emmanuel Amuneke,Not even Ndubuiisi Egbo. So this is the best the so called Philip Consulting can offer to Nigerian soccer fans after two years of waiting? Considering the short time left before the qualifiers ,MRI palaver, passport processing,training,scouting,players’ selection,camping etc,I don’t expect any magic from the above coaches. With all due respect,we have seen Coach Isah Ladan Bosso in the past and what he could offer. I like Fatai Amao(Arsenal). He is an ex-internatioal and he is yet to be tested at the national team stage following his exploits at club football level, but then time may no longer be his friend. NFF should take full responsibility if the Flying Eagles and Golden Eaglets fail to qualify for both Indonesia 2021 FIFA U20 World Cup and Peru 2021 FIFA U17 World Cup respectively. May God help us!

  • What NFF is doing is just recycling of coaches. It still baffles me that Ladan Bosso who lost to Paraguay in Canada 2007 by 4-0 in extra time (regulation time 0-0), will still be recalled as flying eagle’s coach while Manu Garba who has won u-17 world cup but just had a poor outing in last edition will just be booted out. Is NFF suffering from retrograde or anterograde amnesia?

    • Manu Garba collected money from players. As for me, I dont care who the coach is, its just a developmental tournament. Just make sure that the coaches do not collect money from players

      Guy, E be like say we too like to score ourselves owngoal. These appointments are laughable.

    • Bobo Colorado Springs 12 months ago

      Bro, that was Chile at Canada 2007.

  • It is not only disappointing, but downright dumb, to appoint ‘Bosso the Clown’ into such a strategic position. As rightly pointed out, he failed WOEFULLY in 2007 as Flying Eagles coach. His team played unintelligent football during the tournament. So, is Pinnick telling Nigerians that 13 years later, Bosso is the best option we have to coach this team? Not only that – was he not SACKED from his last position as coach of Gombe United due to mediocre performance? Yet, Pinnick decides to REWARD his mediocrity with such a critical position? Ridiculous!
    This is the same Bosso that LIED about Yobo being certified to be an assistant coach to Rohr. He is the same person that actively campaigned against Rohr being Super Eagles coach. This is the same Bosso that was embroiled in SCANDAL, taking overaged players to the U20 WC when he was coach of the team, yet, Pinnick, in his infinte wisdom (or lack thereof) decides to SNEAK this over the hill, good for nothing ‘has been’ with one of the most important coaching positions in Nigeria? Nigerians are not dumb and will protest against this!!!
    A very dumb choice, that insults the collective intelligence of Nigerian fans, if you ask me.

  • Collins id 12 months ago

    i dont kno about the rest but i think i know bosso deserves his appointment. now tell me what has bosso done wrong? a man who have won the u20 afcon and took us to the quaters in the world stage, lost in extra time to chile. went further on to obtain a caf A and B plus diploma in sports management.based in nigeria and can easily scout out the best. for me he his perfect for u20 job. as for under 17 i trust nff i dont see any reason to complain here. NFF gave us manu he won wcup they gave amunike he won wcup they gave us mboh he rish final and u20 quaters. they gave us late yemi tella he won wcup. so why are you guys complaining or do you think NFF likes to loose. my guys make we they respect our people small. smartphone doesnt make you smarter than your elders. do we expect guadiola or knop at this level. havnt u guys hard that our youth are lazy? una think say na joke. how many of our under 40s can boost of caf A or B license including our ex footballers(yobo). let us wait sometimes before judgments. i remember when the news broke out that a new boy (mankanjuola) has gatecrashed the Aigbogun flying eagles camp in germany and is now about to make the list. people started vessing here in this forum that it was bribe and corruption some even say na nff official pikin. i was like let us see this guy first naaa, before judjing them. at the end only that sucess mankajuola is the only player i can remember in that u20wcup squad, if i am a coach i will always be open to new legs anytime any day bcos messi and ronaldo nor dey show for face na for leg and for those calling people old face. how will you feel if your boss call you and say u are sacked bcos he needs new faces even when they dont have the experience you have aquired so far? we are too quick to assume coruption or trabilism in watever decision our leaders takes as if ur hands are clean of corruption and trabalism(hipocrates attacks first) somebody can make wrong decision regardless of bribe or corruption. its simply mistakes which no man is above. i advise we should not let critism becomes our nature.

    Eish, so this is what Philip consulting has given us after all the resources allotted to them? Another northern agenda that has taken us absolutely no where. A very big sham! How can the entire head coaches of 90 perecnt of the teams be made up of people from the same region? What is the fg trying to achieve with this their all northern scheme of appointments? Only God knows. Now, favoritism, nepotism, tribalism and sentiments would be the order of the day when selections would be made. What a disappointment. If we don’t get it right at this level, then, it is goodbye to the senior team. Useless country

    • Igbekun Abo 12 months ago

      My G! The tin tire me o!

      • Oakfield 12 months ago

        @igbekun, it is very sickening. Just brace up to see the kind of players that woukd be called up hence forth. Players that have absolutely nothing to do with those respective teams. There is an agenda to rid the political sphere of this country of any sort of southern influence. I’m so sorry to say this here but it appears to be the truth. This is why u see all these lopsided way of appointments all over fg agencies. It is so glaring that even a blind man can see it clearly. The team that would suffer the brunt of this nonsense is our senior team. Very pitiful.

  • Read the reason for the choice of coach from owngoal news, it may not be a bad choice at the end of the day.

    This why I like to hear from owngoal, they always give the inside gist. Because of their inside sources.


  • Olusegun.B. 12 months ago

    It is so saddening to know that the coaching of youth players is a recycle rather than having a clear freshness of great ideas. You won’t believe this but a Sport journalist at TVC complain about this and said one of the reasons why ex players like Finidi George and Peter Ijeh have not be given such a chance Inspite of their interests is because they don’t have a godfather to back them up .

    This is the reason Nigeria is in a mess in a lot of things . Ladan Bosso coached the u20 to Canada 20 years ago and reached quarter final. Farsi Amoo is old news. Infact this is so serious .

  • Food don come ooo. Oya wey spoon. Na wetin we go CHOP people, moke Una show. Man dem haba, country so blessed but constantly being pegged at a spot or taken many steps backward by greed and self servers. If these are the coaches they had in mind all these while, then why wait soooo long to appoint them. Now these coaches have got very valid excuse to fail; we didn’t have enough time to prepare the team. After Rohr tenure, he go better to siddon look and watch Baba ODEGBAS dey strut his stuff.

    Pinnick just betrayed Nigerians…The future Nigerian youths are in trouble…..

  • OmoEsan 12 months ago

    I think we should desist from interpreting every national decision along religious and tribal lines, most especially when our preferred candidates are not chosen.

    I read someone saying Finidi George and Peter Ijeh were not appointed because they don’t have godfathers. This person should please tell us if Finidi and Peter had godfathers when they both featured for the Super Eagles. Do you even know if they applied, if they were interviewed etc? What even qualifies these two for any of the positions; what certifications and requisite experience have they? You may proceed to show us their track record in coaching if you feel they’re the best.

    The same Isah Ladan Bosso whose image has been maligned by some people here is one of our greatest achievers as far as U20 world cup is concerned. He may not be flamboyant and may also not be the best, but he got Nigeria to the quarter finals in 2007. Since then, only John Obuh has achieved a quarter final fit(in 2011). Why have other coaches not achieved or surpassed this fit since then if it is that easy.

    Fatai Amoo is not a bad choice either. From First Bank to Julius Berger, and from 3SC to the national team roles, his records are there to show.

    I read someone mentioning names like Amuneke, Emenalo, Ndubuisi Egbo, Oliseh and Siasia and I just laughed off such opinion. You want Amuneke to resign from his Technical Director position in Egypt for these positions? You want Ndubuisi Egbo to resign from being manager of an European team for any of these? Even Siasia who isn’t settled at the moment? Emenalo? Oliseh? Please stop this if it’s a joke.

    The NFF has done the needful and our opinions will not make them change their decisions.

    Let’s support the new appointees and hope they succeed.

    • Ayphillydegreat 12 months ago

      I completely agree with you OmoEsan. I think the appointments are not the worst case scenario. I believe Bosso can raise a good U20 side and Amoo can also produce a solid U17 side. Obviously, most fans have lost hope on our youth teams recently. They just need to scout across the nation and beyond to discover some raw talents for the future. That’s the essence of youth teams not necessarily winning at all cost. Now we have Tijani from the last U17 Eaglets that was knocked out in the round of 16. There could still be a couple more from that set that can go all the way. I don’t think there are really better options out there that want to take the youth jobs than this Duo who’s got considerable experiences at that level.

    • So you think Amunneke cannot resign from his present engagement to handle any of our national teams? You also laugh it off when people suggest that Ndubuisi Egbo could quit KF Tirana of Albania to take up a On Nigerian national team job? Even the man you are holding brief for,Issah Ladan Bosso will have to leave Adamawa United to handle the Flying Eagles,so will you also “laugh that off?”
