Former Flying Eagles coach Godwin Uwua has questioned the appointment of Ladan Bosso as handler of the country’s U-20 men’s team.
The Flying Eagles crashed out of the WAFU B Zonal qualifiers in Porto Novo, Benin Republic after finishing last in their group that had Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire.
After two rounds of games the Flying Eagles drew 1-1 against Cote d’Ivoire in their first game and lost 1-0 to Ghana.
Their ouster means they will not be at next year’s U-20 AFCON in Mauritania.
Uwua who took the Flying Eagles to second place finish at the 2007 U-20 AFCON in Congo and also qualify for the World Cup the same year, described the elimination as unfortunate.
In a chat on Brila FM, Uwua said:”Bosso was an assistant coach to me in 2007 and when the team qualified for the world cup, I resigned and went to South Africa and Bosso lead the team to Canada nothing came out of it.
“Coaching is a professional job, here in Nigeria they turn it into politics they just bring somebody there.
“What is the record of Bosso as a coach in this country? I was not surprised by the result.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
