    All you Rohr Haters and SD Jones Impersonator, see your life so. Ghana are going for a foreign coach but you Haters kicked out a wonderful world class coach. Nigeria deserves to be in the current Afcon knock out stages. as for that sick SD Jones Impersonator, enjoy being me whilst it last. Hahahaha.

    Nigerian administrators all over makes me sick with their ways of doing things. All they ever think of is how much money they can make while discharging a duty they are being paid for. And no consequences for their actions usually perpetuate their wrong doings hence the circuit continues.

    Imagine hosting a team that fails to go beyond Round of 16 in AFCON being hosted to a lunch in ASO Rock and commending them for a job well done while the coach was given pat in the back and asked to continue with a lucrative contract as a reward? This is really beyond my understanding.

    You rewarded a performing coach with a sack and then turn round to reward a failure with a proper contract. Perseiro was interviewed telephonically for a job as good as great SE coach…….and then you sent a unilaterally drafted contract to him to sign, announced to the world that you have appointed the coach whom has not agreed to your contract terms and make a mockery of yourself as an astute administrator………..wonders shall never end with these Nigerian politicians cum administrators

    Let’s just hope one day we shall get things right somehow
