    Nigerian coaches with their nepotism and lack of respect. How did Ahmed Abdullahi get selected ahead of the guys from Arsenal and Crystal Palace. Bosso gave his words that only players that showed up for the screening exercises would be considered for the tournament but decided to drop one of the players at the last minute for Abdullahi who did not partake in the screening.
    Considering the fact that Abdullahi just returned from injury for the B team of Gent, a sane coach would have considered a fit player like Arsenal’s Ideho or the crystal palace guy..
    This is part of the reasons why some Nigerian coaches are not successful. Nepotism, tribalism, bribery, and lack of confidence.
    Mr.Bosso,, you just did a boso but no hiding place for you.
    Anyways, Goodluck to the team.

      How are you sure he took bribe?That was a very serious allegation you know.
      The player in question Ahmed Abdullahi was part of the victorious wafu b tournament playoffs where he scored 2 goals in the group stages before we lost him for the rest of the tournament through injury.
      Prior to the wafu playoffs Abdullahi proved to the selectors his quality as a marksman I have seen him play he has quality,the coach has confidence in him hence his inclusion in the team to Morocco.
      The boy from Arsenal was excluded because his Nigerian passport needs renewing.The other lads from Crystal palace and other English club was given a three day ultimatum for the national team coaches to decide their fate,a condition Bosso wouldn’t accept.
      Though Bosso lauded the lad from Crystal palace and promised to give him another chance with the team should they qualify for the world cup.

      Oga what rubbish are you even spilling, how long were the guys from crystal palace and arsenal in camp for, or were you blind when he said they weren’t ready for African style of football. So where is the nepotism in his decision. You all just get quick data and start to make fool of yourselves. Let the coach be. When his position becomes vacant take your online degree and apply for the job

    I’m not sure if you are referencing my comments. There is no where in my comment where I accused the coac of taking bribe. I only reiterated the widely recognized attitudes of some of the coaches.
    Besides, I did not doubt Abdullahi’s capability I only raised concerns about preferential treatment which was accorded Abdullahi.
    Also, the fact that he just returned from injury should have made more sense for the coach to assess him closely before dropping another player who had been penciled for the tournament at the last minute.

    @Larry’s points were spot-on.
    Seemingly half-fit Ahmed Abdullahi’s sudden inclusion on this travelling squad reeks of nepotism. People shouldn’t kid themselves.
