Obuh’s resignation accepted
The resignation of John Obuh as coach of Nigeria U20 team has been accepted, officials have said.
“We have accepted the resignation of John Obuh, but he is not the only one going,” said chairman of the technical committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Chris Green.
“We have relieved all members of the technical crew of their jobs.”
Obuh quit as coach of the Flying Eagles after the team crashed out to Uruguay in the Round of 16 clash at the recent FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey.
He has been in charge of the U20s since he led the U-17 team to reach the final of the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup, which Nigeria hosted.
The former Kwara United handler led Nigeria to win the 2011 African Youth Championship in South Africa and also reach the last eight of the 2011 World Cup in Colombia.
He also guided the team to finish third at this year’s AYC in Algeria.
Meanwhile, Green told MTNFootball.com his committee will meet next week to appoint coaches to the various female national teams.
“We will be meeting next week to constitute the technical crew of the Super Falcons and all the female national teams,” he announced.
