Fanny Amun, Nigeria’s 1993 Golden Eaglets coach, has said that the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, is dying under Amaju Pinnick, its president.
He said Pinnick, Seyi Akinwumi, the federation’s first vice president and Shehu Dikko, the second vice, are running the affairs of the country’s football house like a mafia.
Amun said this on Monday during an interview on Brilafm, monitored by Newsbreak.ng.
He also said the three senior executives of the glass house, are marketers and not administrators.
“The men in NFF are running the place like mafia, go to Abuja, the place is dying, it is dying everyday.
“I am not against anybody, but as far as I’m concerned, they are marketers and not administrators,” he said.
On the performance of the Super Eagles at the World Cup, the former coach suggested that the players should be paid their winning bonus against Croatia, to serve as motivation in their remaining two games.
“The boys need serious motivation now. If they can be paid their full winning bonus against Croatia, they will know that they have no option but to win their remaining two games in the group”, he also said.
Amun refuted claims that money has been a major reason for disunity among past Super Eagles’ players in past World Cups.
“It is just to discredit past governments,” he added.
“There has never been any issue surrounding money. Money has always been available.”
