Disappointed by the failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has expectedly disengaged the team’s technical crew led by Augustine Owen Eguavoen.
According to a press statement made available to journalists on Thursday, the federation has also
withdrawn the two-and-half years contract offered the coaches and terminated the appointment of the entire technical crew of the team with immediate effect.
The statement read in parts:
“Following the failure of the Super Eagles of Nigeria to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the erstwhile Technical Adviser, Augustine Eguavoen has stepped down from that position with immediate effect”.
“The NFF has in the meantime withdrawn the two-and-half years contract offered the coaches and terminated the appointment of the entire technical crew of the team with immediate effect.
” A new crew will be announced after a proper review to lead the new charge of reinvigorating the Super Eagles to face future challenges appropriately.
“We thank the coaches and team officials for their service to the nation and wish them success in their future endeavours,” said NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi”.
