Former Super Eagles handler, Amodu Shuaibu has rejected calls for him to take charge of the Super Eagles in the interim.
Amodu who left the job 14 years ago said the mere mention of his name is putting undue pressure on him.
“I am a Technical Director, I have had so many phone calls over the announcement, I am not a coach, do people know what I am going through after the news,” he said. He explained there is wisdom in building these coaches, they need to become a brand like I am, so we have to give them time to operate,” he said.
The former BCC Lions sweat merchant pointed out that he had made his name and pleaded that the upcoming ones should be given the opportunity to prove themselves. “Someone like Samson Siasia is already a brand and other coaches should be given the opportunity to showcase themselves,” he posited.
“It is unfortunate that the football federation did not hold a conference to clear the air on the appointment,” he added. Amodu said this in order to put the record straight in the events of success or failure.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) had last week announced that Salisu Yusuf, Alloy Agu, Imama Amakapabo and Kennedy Boboye should lead the team to the two international matches against Mali and Luxembourg next month in France.
