Neglect of technical department, inadequate training caused Eagles ouster from CHAN – Laloko   –  Super Eagles ouster at the ongoing Championship of African Nations (CHAN), is due to the neglect of the NFF’s Technical Department and the lesser time Coach Sunday Oliseh gave to the team’s training. Kashimawo Laloko, former Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Association (NFA), stated in a telephone
[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”70560″]interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Abuja on Tuesday. He the NFF Technical Director, Amodu Shaibu, who was supposed to be the arrow-head of the technical department, was left in the secretariat without any job schedule. “What type of authority has been given to Amodu to work; Amodu is in Abuja without a place to leave, no car. And with his personality, does he not deserve a good pay? “This is the point because the technical department will work if the NFF allow the place to work; Amodu was supposed to be in CHAN to help in the technical aspect but he was not there’’, Laloko said. The former PEPSI Academy coach pointed out that in spite of all the noise, the Eagles were unprepared for the Guineans. “Guinea has never been a friend of Nigeria in the field of play; they have always been a stumbling block to us. “They have always prepared to win; they have skill, tactics and power, so when we are going to meet this type of team, we have to prepare well. “We have a good team at this CHAN 2016 but the preparation and coaching were not enough’’, he said. Laloko, who also lashed out at the players for their lackadaisical attitude towards the Guineans, noted that it was time Nigerian players began to pay less attention to monetary reward in football. “I don’t believe in monetary rewards; these players playing for us are failing themselves because if you are invited to play for your country, you should count yourself lucky. “They should know that they are selling themselves; times are changing and we need to change. NAN recalls that Guinea defeated Nigeria 1-0 to qualify, while Tunisia thrashed Niger Republic 5-0. Nigeria, third place finishers at last edition and neighbours Niger, quarter finalist at the 2014 edition, automatically crashed out of the ongoing championship on four points and one point respectively.
