    I just read somewhere that the NFF just got him sacked, just because he told them to do the right thing. Now, unnecessary corporate ego will cost us another good coach. Back to square one. New coach, new style, new approach, new players and perhaps new unsavory results. Our problem isn’t lack of talent; it’s that lack of good decision makers. This is the Gasau that one Prophet predicted will be the best NFF president ever isnruening out to be the worst ever in Nigerian history. Heaven knows Nigerian football fans deserve better.

      It’s still fake news for now, owngoal as usual gives their fake news ojbnews relied on their information to continue to spread the unofficial information.

    I don’t believe in FIFA ranking. Rather, what you can do on the pitch of play is that congratulations to Super Falcons Shikena.

    I read it somewhere a few minutes ago that coach Waldrum won’t continue with Super Falcons. Well, NFF, I know you don’t have the interest of Nigerians in mind, but I am so happy that the coach has exposed your atrocities to the world. It is well. Hmm. God bless Nigeria!!!

    While our lovely NFF are looking to sack a coach that did us proud at the world cup, this article here suggests that the U.S. are looking at him as a possible candidate for the US women team job.

    As for Peseiro, some news articles are saying that if an agreement is not reached, the team will be taken over by interim coaches, WITH OUR OWN AS THE HEAD COACH.
    Otu tu nze! Make we dey observe as things unfold!

    Thumbs up Pompeiman. The NFF are destroying Nigerian football. Waldrum only said the truth. You are right about Peseiro because they want to bring back Eguavoen. Nigeria we hail thee.

    NFF have killed Nigeria football

  • They want to bring back a failure? I don’t know why the government are not saying anything. Does it mean they support the NFF? If I were in the govenment, I would have dealt with these vagabonds in NFF.

      It’s really annoying that they don’t take feelings of fans into consideration . This is why our football and Nigeria as a whole is always backward despite the efforts of the common man politicians always fails us. Tufiakwa .

  • It isn’t time for complaints… they’re unnecessary…

    I think it’s about time we the fans old or young descend heavily on erring government officials both at the polical,ministry and parastatal levels Starting with the NFF…
