NFF insist no contract with Saintfiet
Saintfiet - no contract says NFF
The appointment of Saintfiet has generated a lot of reactions after the country's minister of sports Bolaji Abdullahi asked the NFF to jettison the idea of employing the Belgian coach.
NFF media committee chairman Emeka Inyama told MTNFootball.com, "We don't have any contractual agreement with Saintfiet.
"We only announced that we have resolved to give him the job. No papers were signed, no contract was entered into and as such we have no reason to say we are sacking him."
On March 28, 2012, Inyama addressed a world press conference announcing that the 38-year-old Belgian has been handed a four-year contract with a $20,000 monthly salary.
However, the NFF have failed in their effort to secure a work permit for the former Ethiopia and Namibia coach.
It is now believed the job will be given to a local man.
