A top member of the newly appointed Super Eagles backroom staff said he is in the dark over what the future holds with most of them yet to get any confirmation letter to officially back up their appointment,
One of the coaches who pleaded anonymity said he doesn't consider himself a member of the coaching crew yet until NFF officially send his letter of appointment.
He said the appointment of coaches should not be done verbally in this modern day of sports development, adding that the country's soccer governing body needs to follow due process in appointing coaches.
" I still don't know why we are still at this level as a country, we are yet to receive our letter of appointment as I talk to you. All I got was a phone call informing me that I have been appointed by NFF.
"We need to move away from that era when appointments of coaches are done verbally without officially issuing a letter of appointment," he said.
Meanwhile, NFF is expected to name Super Eagles' new technical adviser this week while Salisu Yusuf is expected to lead the national team US ahead of the dual international friendly against Ecuador and Mexico in June.
After non-qualification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the Super Eagles became friendly match material for World Cup teams that have African teams like Senegal and Cameroon in their groups.
The NFF release reveals the venue of the encounter to be the “25,000-capacity Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey-home to Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls.”
Ecuador qualified fourth in the South America qualifiers while the Super Eagles were beaten to the World Cup ticket on away goals against Ghana. This meeting with the three-time African champions will be their first-ever senior team clash.
The match comes five days after Nigeria play Mexico at the AT & T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
