Ex-sports minister wants NFF to come clean on Le Guen
A former minister of sports Col. Musa Mohammed (rtd) says the Nigeria Football Federation are holding back too much information away from the public regarding details surrounding the appointment of new Super Eagles manager Paul Le Guen.
In a chat with Daily Trust, yesterday, the ex-military administrator said a similar incident occurred during his time at the helm of the sports ministry when the then NFA said telecom giants Globacom have promised to foot the bill of an appointed foreign coach when the said company couldn’t even settle an agreed sponsorship fee with the outfit.
“A credible sponsor is vital at this time so that past mistakes can be avoided and I feel the Glass House owe the public to come out with all the details regarding Le Guen’s involvement and not hold anything back.” Mohammed noted.
Meanwhile, according to reports Le Guen has reportedly rejected NFF’s offer to lead the Eagles as Technical Adviser due to contractual disagreements.
According to reports, the 52-yearold rejected the offer because the Glass House failed to meet his terms and conditions regarding bringing in his own support staff for the role instead of the one installed by the Glass House.
