Bosso faults NFF criteria for national teams recruitment
Nigeria Football Coaches Association (NFCA) has frown at the criteria and standard used by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for the employment of new coaches to the vacant national team jobs.
NFF had advertised that the interested applicants should apply for the national teams coaching job with U-17, U20, U23 male and female categories, with at least CAF C license certificates as minimum requirements.
But the association president, Ladan Bosso said the criteria requested by the NFF for the vacant jobs are too low.
“We have categories of national teams; so also we have categories of coaches in this country too – that is the standard all over the world. So we will advise the NFF through the technical Committee that they should categorize the coaches according to the national teams’ categories,” Bosso told
“We have over 150 coaches with CAF B license in the country and we have over 300 coaches with CAF C license while we have 45 coaches with CAF A license. So therefore, we expected that the applicants for the head coach of the U-17, U-20 and U-23 must possess CAF A license while their assistants should have at least CAF B licenses.
“The assistants’ coaches of the U-20 and U17 should possess CAF B and C licenses respectively with vast experiences. We as an association ready to accept responsibility for the coaches’ performances good or bad if the NFF yield to our advice.”
