Eagles coach, official face sack
Eagles bench in Malawi
Details of the officials’ offence in Blantyre, Malawi, for a 2014 World Cup qualifier are still very sketchy as top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have bluntly refused to discuss the matter.
Eagles coach Stephen Keshi also refused to comment on this issue.
Officials have tried to keep the whole incident in Malawi under wraps with a baffled team official saying “this ought to be a very top secret”.
It is now left to be seen whether the NFF will go ahead and sack the officials.
MTNFootball.com specially gathered that letters sacking the two officials had even been prepared and were only not given to them following the pleadings of the their colleagues on the eve of the team’s flight back to Calabar ahead of a 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Rwanda.
The affected officials would later be part of the team’s final training in Abuja before the team departed for Calabar the following day.
Nigeria were forced to a 1-1 draw by hosts Malawi in a Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifier on June 9 at the Kamuzu Banda Stadium in the commercial capital of Blantyre.
