Former Chairman of the NFF’s technical committee Christopher Green has said that the Golden Eaglet’s coach should not be as old as the current handler, Fatai Amoo.
Green in a chat with www brila.net exclusively revealed that the modern terrain in appointment of coaches of the under age groups have changed, clubs don’t appoint managers above sixty years this days, they’d rather go for coaches in their thirties and most especially from teams ranging from the U15 to the U 17 national teams.
“Its a bottom to the top approach, what do I mean by that, first from the U15, we should have people that are knowledgeable to take care of that department straight to the U17 – you don’t appoint a coach because you know them or you have their contacts, you like them!
”Look at the past two handlers of the team, they both helped us now we are shouting Amoo, Amoo, Amoo, when last did Amoo coach up to this level and how old is he ? Green asked,”
Football is dynamic, football grows, its very difficult to see a coach up to sixty years even in the clubs now, most of the coaches in that age group are on their way out but then, they make up for experiences and training as a trainers as the case may be.
“In our own case here, we don’t have some of them on that age range training as a trainers having the composite exposures and you get them into the national team and you expects them to perform?! Its not possible.” he said.
