Musa Amadu-No Plans To Fire Uche,No Connection To Female Football Foundation


The Nigerian Football Federation has dissociated it's self from a group calling themselves The Female Football Foundation in a statement issued by the general secretary of the Nigerian Football Federation,Musa Amadu in Abuja.In a released statement ,Mr. Musa Amadu said that the mission and objectives of the group remain unclear to the NFF since it had failed to seek proper endorsement from the NFA.

The Female Football Foundation has made newspaper publications to the effect that it is launching a private, welfare, insurance & nurture- The Win initiative for the Super Falcons' June 2011 World Cup bid, at the Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Ikeja on Wednesday, 18th May, 2011. Mr Amodu reacted by saying,

"We do not have a clear idea of what the group is doing, and it would be wrong on our part to associate with the launch. The group has not through any written documentation sought for approval for what it is doing, or the endorsement of the Nigeria Football Federation for the project.

"In as much as we would approve of genuine efforts by private individuals and companies to help propel women's football in Nigeria and also to support our women's team's campaign at the FIFA Women's World Cup finals in Germany this summer, we are compelled by decency and diligence to disassociate ourselves from this initiative that has failed to seek for NFF's endorsement."

In other news,the head of the technical committee of the NFF has rubbished news about the committee's meeting aimed at firing Super Falcon's coach Eucharia Uche after failing to qualify to the All Africa Games to be held in Maputo.He maintained that the meeting was solely about activities of the national teams, Under-20 (Flying Eagles), Under-23 (Dream Team IV), Super Eagles and Super Falcons and had nothing to do with the firing of Uche. The coaches of women's soccer teams in Nigeria have have called for the improvement of the women's league if Nigeria is to have a steady stream of players for the national team.they stressed the need for the NFF to improve on incentive packages give to the players in order for the players to give otheir best whenever called to duty.
