NFF has sacked the coaches and entire technical crew of the Super Eagles
The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has announced the termination of the appointment of all the technical crew of the Super Eagles.
The development is coming days after Nigeria failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
In a statement released on Thursday, the NFF also announced that Austin Eguavoen has stepped down from his role as the technical adviser of the Super Eagles.
The national football body said the resignation of Eguaveon and termination of the appointment of the entire technical crew is with immediate effect.
“Following the failure of the Super Eagles of Nigeria to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the erstwhile Technical Adviser, Augustine Eguavoen, has stepped down from that position with immediate effect,” the statement read.

NFF said a new technical crew will be appointed in due course to take charge of the super eagles with a view to revamping and better positioning the team for future challenges.
“The NFF has, in the meantime, withdrawn the two-and-half years’ contract offered the coaches and terminated the appointment of the entire technical crew of the team with immediate effect. A new crew will be announced after a proper review to lead the new charge of reinvigorating the Super Eagles to face future challenges appropriately.
“’We thank the coaches and team officials for their service to the nation and wish them success in their future endeavours,’ said NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi.”
The disengagement of the technical crew came just a little over one month after it was constituted as NFF dumped Jose Peseiro, Portuguese tactician, for Eguavoen following his exploits at the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.
