The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has sacked Coach Salisu Yusuf and Nduka Ugbade.
Yusuf and Ugbade were sacked due to their teams’ woeful performances.
Their sack was made public by NFF President Ibrahim Gusau in a chat with Newsmen
“Their jobs are tied to the competition. The coaches have no jobs to do for now since their teams failed to qualify,” he said.
Yusuf’s Dream Team failed to qualify for the U-23 African Cup of Nations and, as a result, won’t be part of the next Olympic football event.
Ugbade’s Golden Eaglets also crashed out of the U-17 African Cup of Nations in the last eight.
This also cost Nigeria, a five-time world champion, a place at the next World Cup.
