Former Eaglesâ€™ Chief Coach, Shaibu Amodu, who qualified the team for next monthâ€™s 2010 World Cup, has been approved to join the squad to South Africa. He is however going there as a delegate.
Amoduâ€™s approval to be in South Africa as one of the four Football Ambassadors was approved after the Executive Committee of the Nigeria Football Associationâ€™s nocturnal meeting Wednesday at the NFA secretariat.
While responding to questions after the NFA board meeting, Shehu Adamu said Amoduâ€™s inclusion in the team was in recognition of his efforts at qualifying the Eagles for the finals of the 2010 World Cup.
â€œHe ( Amodu) is to earn estacode like other delegates to the World Cup and not match bonus or any other payment due to the players and technical crew.
â€œHe is also to partake in the share of 25 per cent of the World Cup bonus coming from Fifa for the participation, alongside players and members of technical crewâ€, Shehu Adamu said after the meeting that was concluded at 9.15pm at the NFA secretariat.
