'NFF Always Picks Wrong Coaches, Players For Super Eagles' – Amokachi
Amokachi has blamed the Super Eagles woes on appointment of wrong coaches as well as calling up wrong players into the team
Former Nigeria striker, Daniel Amokachi has said the national team’s problems are down to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) appointing the wrong coaches and calling up the wrong players.
Amokachi stated this during an interview on Channels Television on Sunday, November 20, 2022.
He was reacting to the Eagles’ hapless 4-0 defeat against Portugal in an international friendly match last week.
Amokachi, however, noted it’s too early to allow the current head coach, Jose Peseiro go, saying that he should be provided with help wherever he needs it.
Amokachi said: “When you look at the Portugal game, that tells you that we don’t even deserve to be there (World Cup).
“There are one, two, three different angles that you have to look at it, bringing in the right coach, bringing in the right players, and getting the right environment to play.
“We always bring the wrong coaches to handle a country like Nigeria; we always bring the wrong players."
