  • Olofinjana should take over as Super eagles head coach and let’s say bye bye to Jose Pesiero for good! Good riddance 

  • Mr. Seyi Olofinjana  is among our ex-internationals who should be running our football either as administrators or as coaches. Instead, some bad-belle fans would rather incompetent foreigners get the job. They throw out all kinds of allegations against our great ex-internationals without evidence to support their allegations.
    But you can’t keep a good man down. And I regard all our ex-internationals as good men.
    Let it be known that in the entire history of Nigeria football, no foreign coach employed by Nigeria has accomplished what a local coach, Stephen Keshi accomplished as coach of The Nigerian national team. And he was treated for worse than any of them including Mr. Rohr was ever treated. 
    So for those always arguing about him (Mr. Rohr) being a good man and being badly treated by The NFF, I say, cry me a river.
    And while you are at it, I would hasten to remind you that he couldn’t carry Coach Keshi’s coaching manuals.

    All those alcultic people in NFF will not give him chance, this is how they targeted keshi and killed him. Sunday Oliseh ran away because of too much juju in NFF. Federal government need to raid NFF and fix people who knows football well! They have initiated Eguaveon, so he don’t know what is doing again!

    Imagine we have our own Michael Emenalo an ex super Eagle player who was also former Chelsea and Monaco director of football and currently director of Football at money mad Saudi league and our own football is still the way it is. we have the right people but our system will never give them chance.
