FIFA U-17: Brazilian coach quits

By Fidelis Ebu, Abuja
Brazilian Chief Coach, Luiz Nizzo, is set to quit the job of youth football development after the on-going Fifa Under-17 World Cup after his team was beaten twice in the group stage.

“After 22 years in  youth football, I think I’m done with it. I’ve made my decision concerning that. I’m not getting younger. Grey hairs have taken over my head. It’s time I call it quit”, he sounded after his futile attempts to dominate the group B fixtures in Lagos that had Switzerland, Japan and Mexico.

Nizzo insisted that he was done with youth football but would look up to handling the bigger boys.
“I have finished my job with the Under-17 and I am looking at something else, maybe a job with the senior team. It’s a decision I have taken before now, and it is not because of the outcome of the result so far.

“The pressure is too much in the U-17 job. Everything was done for us to get to the next round, but it is unfortunate the result is sad”, he said.
Coach Nizzo said that it was time for him to climb the ladder because “I have nine of my players who have graduated to Brazil national team”.
