NFF out­lines du­ties for Fal­cons’, Ea­glets crews

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

The Nigeria Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion (NFF) yes­ter­day clearly spelt out for the re­spec­tive crews of the Se­nior Women Na­tional Team (Su­per Fal­cons) and U-17 Na­tional Team (Golden Ea­glets) their du­ties and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as both teams seek to build new and solid squads.

In a par­ley at the Con­fer­ence Room of the NFF Sec­re­tariat, Abuja, NFF’s Di­rec­tor of Com­pe­ti­tions, Dr. Mo­hammed Sanusi warned of the dan­gers of per­sons tak­ing over the du­ties of oth­ers in crews of the Na­tional Teams.

“I have been man­dated by the NFF Pres­i­dent and the Chair­man of Tech­ni­cal Com­mit­tee to fully brief you all on the im­por­tance of stick­ing to your re­spec­tive du­ties and car­ry­ing out your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties well.

“You must know the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that go with each role and the need to also tol­er­ate and re­spect other per­sons and their roles, be­cause you all come from dif­fer­ent back­grounds to carry out a na­tional as­sign­ment. We want the crews of all Na­tional Teams to be abreast of their du­ties and to do those du­ties to the best of their abil­i­ties.

“For ex­am­ple, the Head Coach is the leader of the team at all times, while the Team Ad­min­is­tra­tor is the head of ad­min­is­tra­tion, who han­dles all ad­min­is­tra­tive and lo­gis­tics mat­ters,” Dr. Sanusi said.

The Su­per Fal­cons are pre­par­ing for their 2014 African Women Cham­pi­onship fi­nal round qual­i­fy­ing fix­ture against the She-Amavubi of Rwanda, with the first leg com­ing up next month, while reign­ing world cham­pi­ons Ea­glets have a 2015 African U-17 Cham­pi­onship qual­i­fy­ing fix­ture against ei­ther DR Congo or Bu­rundi in July.

While the Ea­glets are billed to par­tic­i­pate in the WAFU B Tour­na­ment tak­ing place in Togo later this month, the NFF has se­cured an in­ter­na­tional friendly for the Fal­cons against the In­domitable Lionesses of Cameroon, to be played in Abuja on April 15.
