    The NFF Chairman is a man with a lot of ideas. Those going for the coaching and match analysis courses are just pioneers. Many more will still go and of course those that will benefit from such courses. I think he is getting it right and we need to give him some breather and also our support. We need not castigate him as I see him as an achiever who will take Nigeria football to the next level. Well done Amanju Pinnick.
