Daily Trust - - SPORT -

of o f The Nige­ria Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion (NFF) has re­futed a story in some sec­tions of the me­dia that the Fed­er­a­tion has se­cured the sum $1.5 mil­lion from the Nige­ria Na­tional Petroleum Cor­po­ra­tion (NNPC) as spon­sor­ship for salaries the in­com­ing Su­per Ea­gles’ Head Coach.Chair­man of the NFF Me­dia and Pub­lic­ity Com­mit­tee, Hon. Suleiman Ya­haya-Kwande, said: “The story is the fig­ment of the imag­i­na­tion of the writ­ers. No­body in the NFF or NNPC dis­cussed the mat­ter of salary of Ea­gles’ Coach and there is no iota of truth in it.

“Of course, we would be happy if the Nige­ria Na­tional Petroleum Cor­po­ra­tion can come into Nige­ria foot­ball, as we are try­ing to at­tract more cor­po­rate bodies into the Nige­ria game. But there has been no dis­cus­sion be­tween NFF and the NNPC over pay­ment of the new Su­per Ea­gles’ Head Coach or tech­ni­cal crew.”

The process for the ap­point­ment of a new Su­per Ea­gles’ Head Coach is on with the NFF Tech­ni­cal and De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tee hav­ing short­listed Nige­rian Sal­isu Yusuf, Bel­gian Tom Saint­fiet and French­man Paul Le Guen for a fi­nal in­ter­view.

The com­mit­tee will meet on Mon­day, 18th July to in­ter­view the three per­sons and an­nounce the suc­cess­ful can­di­date, after a pre­sen­ta­tion to the NFF Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee.
