  • This Amaju Pinnick sef. He just dey do wetin we like. Oyibo coach for Super Falcons is a vely vely goid development o. My belly dey sweet me no be small. Our local coaches dey disappoint us too much. Make we try stranger coach. I believe say if no Gernot Rohr dey coach the CHAN Eagles fem for do better pass this one dem do for Morocco. Thanks NFF under Amaju Pinnick.

  • But Amaju and his management or executive team are a phenomenal to be candid. I wish they stay here for another 5 years. Basketball federation thought they brought change but in essence brought backwardness and confusion. The previous administration were great so also this one but greed and African style did not allow them to resolve.
    Nff please don’t join them. We want this stability, trust and progress for our football

    this guy Amaju is phenomenal due to his sense of judgment in identifying loopholes before it bust. The hiring of a Swedish coach for the super falcons is a welcome development and long overdue due to Swedish women football pedigree in world football. His hiring will rub on d super falcon enormous potential. Am not taking away anything from what Florence omagbemi have achieved but we need to conquer the world stage as we have already conquered Africa by a mile. if I have my way this Amaju pinnik led board will stay for life. They are passionate and purposeful in their handling of Nigeria football. kudos to them and best of luck come 2018

    A nice one from the NFF, we hope to conquer the world very soon. I also think the local coaches should develop themselves and garner experience by going for courses and coaching foreign teams either in Africa or abroad. I love what Sunday Oliseh and Emmanuel amuneke are doing presently, they are improving their CVs. Just imagine fortuna sittard gaining promotion into the Eredivisie, it will be awesome. Nigerians will boast ehn! Success has many fathers but failure has none.
