The Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development Alhaji Ismail Abubakar has directed the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) to submit the Technical Report of the last phase of the 2021 World Cup qualifiers to the Ministry.
“The report must be on the table of the Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development on Monday, the 22nd of November, 2021,” the PS said in a statement.
The Super Eagles have qualified for the playoff phase of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Africa but the performance of the team has left a lot to be desired.
A top Sports Ministry source said, “The NFF knows that any plan to hire another coach must start with first briefing the Minister /FG about the Rohr issue and bringing a closure to it to avoid embarrassing Nigeria.
“Secondly. The decision to hire anybody as a national coach must be discussed and undergo review.
“The Super Eagles is Nigeria’s property, not a premier club.”
