    Next time good luck.

     
  • I wish it was Drogba. Austin Eguavoen’s project must begin in earnest. Every Nigerian football lover, sports new should buy into the ex-player elected the president of NFF.

    Ivory coast is Nigeria, their leaders preferred calamity to progress and transparency because of their personal gains.

    Second time in a row that they nocked out Drogba. Keep pushing Drogba.

    Etoo have done it and he succeeded. Drogba is trying his best to follow Etoo’s footsteps, it may take time in a country like this to achieve that height but by God’s grace, he will get there.

    African countries are waking up because we can not continue this way.

    However, no place like home.

    EFCC should standby, after the tenure of the current NFF members, they should get them arrested. Amaju, Diko and Sheyi are the first people to be arrested then, follow by their servants.

    Enough is enough, Africa deserve to be among the best in the world. Mr. Drogba, relent not, no pain no gain, keep pushing til the end. God is in control. Africa must rise up again. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    @Bola, I read an article on the prospect of having the former Eagles gaffer, Eguavoen becoming the federation president. What really stands him out? Why not Seyi Olofinjana or Michael Emenalo?

     
    • Mike Emenalo managed Chelsea and Monaco, two great clubs.

      Segun Odegbami is very sound.
      As a matter of fact, Segun Odegbami, As FA president, Emenalo or Olifinjana as Technical Director.

      A dutch coach, assisted by Amuneke , Manu Garba, and Ikeme, will be the best thing to happen to our football.
