ERSTWHILE Super Eagles skipper, Austin Jay Jay Okocha’s new portfolio in the Green Eagles has been explained by the Nigeria football Federation.

Okocha was recently drafted to the Eagles as a Technical hand but the NFF said yesterday that Okocha was neither an assistant coach nor a member of the technical crew.


“Okocha is a member of the Presidential Task Force, PTF. It’s from there that he was drafted to the Eagles as a linksman. He is not an assistant coach of the Eagles. He is there to report to PTF on the goings on in the team.

He is the eyes and ears of the PTF just as Mastroudes is the eyes and ears of the Technical Committee of the NFF in the Eagles team. He reports to NFF on the happenings in the team”, NFF President Sani Lulu said.
