Super Eagles coach to the 2002 Korea/Japan World Cup, Chief Adeboyega Onigbinde has called on the Nigeria Football Association, NFA to learn from the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) award which excluded Nigerian players.
Onigbinde, who expressed sadness over the absence of Nigeria players in the CAF award list, said it is time to develop the game as it would go a long way.
“It is very sad that none of our players was nominated, after years of managing the game. With the way things have gone, do you think that any one of our players is more consistent than those that were nominated?
“It’s glaring that our problem emanate from the fact that the players are not consistent in their game and this speaks volume of them.
On the way out, the Modakeke high chief said the only way out is to develop the game, starting from the grassroots.
“Now that we have failed again, we should start developing our football, this is the only way we can come out from the woods,” he said.
