‘OPERATION SWEEP’ IMMINENT ON NIGERIA NATIONAL TEAM COACHES

If indications that www.sportsvillagesquare.com are getting are anything to go bye, there will be an almost a clean sweep of national football coaches of the Nigeria national teams.

Perhaps only Gernot Rohr, who has a running contracts that extends to June 2020, is certain of not losing his position, at least as at now. Talks are still ongoing concerning contract extension.

Apart from the technical crew of the Super Eagles, all the others are adjudged to have performed below expectation as Nigerian teams were knocked out of one competition or the other.

With the exit of Thomas Dennerby, the Swedish coach of the Super Falcons, the team slid badly that it could not make it beyond third of a five-round qualifying series for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

And so, for the third consecutive time, the Super Falcons will be missing in action at the Olympic Games.

The Under 20 side under Paul Aigbogun failed to get beyond the Round of 16 of the World Cup this year and also failed at the final match of the African Games in Rabat.

The U-23 men’s team under Imama Amapakabo also crashed out at the group stage of the CAF tournament in Cairo and thus bid farewell to the Olympic Games. Before then, Amapakabo’s home based Super Eagles were eliminated from WAFU Cup and African Nations Championship qualifiers by Togo.

The scorecards, Sports Village Square gathered, will be tabled next week Thursday when the Nigeria Football Federation holds its Annual General Meeting in Benin.
