Was the NFF Right To Decimate The Size of Nigeria's National teams' Coaching Crews?
The Nigeria Football Federation has reportedly trimmed down the size of each of Nigeria's national teams' coaching crews. All of the teams, made up of the Super Eagles, Super Falcons, Flying Eagles, Falconets, Golden Eaglets and the Flamingos, will see the number of their coaches almost halved.
According to the NFF President, the retrenchment exercise became necessary in other to cut down the cost of consumption in the team.
He argued that four coaches/technical advisers per team is enough and can move a team forward.
"There's no enough money in the coffers of the NFF, so we must cut costs", said a source close to the Glass House.
A bevy of Nigeria fans welcome this move as they see the size of the coaching crews of the various national teams overbloated in recent times without the concomitant effect of yielding favourable results. As the saying goes, too many cooks ruined the Jollof rice.
And I have to agree.
