Former member of the executive committee of the world football governing body, FIFA Dr. Amos Adamu has applauded the courage of Coach Samson Siasia to accept the responsibility of taking over the Super Eagles for the two-legged 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Egypt this month.
Speaking in an exclusive chat with Sports Vanguard at the weekend, Adamu noted that since the time was not there for the NFF to shop for a substantive coach, the only option left was to draft some of the coaches that are already used to the team in the interim.
“What the NFF has done to appoint Siasia and Amuneke to take us through this next two games against Egypt is the right thing. Also I salute the courage and patriotism of the coaches to have accepted to come in at this time. Everybody knows that there is no much time left to hire a coach who does not know the team because if you are talking about a foreign coach it takes time to negotiate and all that.”
