NFF denies appointing Amokachi as Technical Director

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has denied appointing Daniel Amokachi as Head of its Technical Department.

A statement issued by the NFF Director of Communications Ademola Olajire says the NFF Technical Director remains Mr Bitrus Bewarang.

It reads: “This clarification becomes necessary against the background of wide-circulating, but totally misleading reports of the appointment of Amokachi, a former Super Eagles captain and coach, as head of NFF technical department.”

“’The NFF has been bemused by this unfounded story, which no doubt must have embarrassed Mr. Amokachi himself,” Fresh said.

Olajire also revealed that the idea of a major role for Amokachi might later be considered.

“Amokachi no doubt deserves all the regard and respect befitting his new role as an ambassador; he should not be dragged into needless controversies such as this.

“’The NFF, once more, enjoins the generality of the media to retain the important work ethic of fact-checking and verification, and beware of empty wildfires lit by obscure online cells that lack any iota of credibility,” Olajire said.
