The Nigeria Football Federation, (NFF) has assured the Golden Eaglets’ coach, Manu Garba, as well as his team of all the needed support as they prepare for the African Under-17 regional qualifiers in Niger Republic.
Chris Giwa board members who were on a fact-finding mission yesterday paid a visit to the Golden Eaglets at the FIFA Goal Project Package B of the Abuja National Stadium, as well as the Flying Eagles at their Chida Hotel Camp.
Johnson, who spoke on behalf of the board, conveyed the best wishes of the NFF president, Giwa to Coach Garba, saying “we are here at the instance of the president, who would have loved to be here to see you and the boys.
“Mr. president is however unavoidably absent as he had to attend another urgent meeting as we were about to leave, but he sends his greetings,” Johnson said.
“Mr. president said you should choose the best players available as no board member will choose or impose any player on you.”
He added, “the issue of funds, your allowances and training materials you talked about will be addressed soon, just focus on your training and be rest assured you will have no cause to worry”.
Johnson, however, called on the Coach to submit his needs in writing together with the names of the 60 players who will be shortlisted for the Magnetic Resonance Imaging, [MRI] ahead of the qualifiers.
