NFF Keeps Mum On Obuh's Fate


Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, is not ready to reveal what becomes the fate of coach John Sam Obuh, after his Flying Eagles yesterday returned from the Colombia 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup where they lost to France in their quarter final match.

While speaking with P.M.Sports at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos yesterday, Secretary General of the NFF, Barrister Sam Ahmedu, declined to say categorically what would be the fate of Obuh and the role he would play in the team after the World Cup. He, however, said the NFF is waiting for Obuh to submit his World Cup report to the technical department of the NFF for assessment.

“Nothing changes as regards the status of Obuh. He still remains what he is as our U-20 coach. The technical department will be waiting to receive his report and look into it and the performance of the team in Colombia,” he said.

“The crew, I mean both the players and the coaches have done a good job for the country and they deserve to take some time off the job and get some rest.”

Meanwhile, former Green Eagles’ defender, Yisa Shofoluwe, has advised the NFF to keep the bulk of the players for the future, saying he sees them going places as a team.
