Ex-sports min­is­ter wants NFF to come clean on Le Guen

Daily Trust - - SPORT - By Mansur Abubakar & Joshua Odeyemi

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.

Herve Penot, a re­porter at L’Equipe, wrote via his han­dle @hpenot_ lequipe: “Paul Le Guen re­jects Nige­ria. French­man in­sists the coun­try’s FA (NFF) yet to meet terms & con­di­tions to be coach.”
