Eguavoen, Lawal, Storm NNL Super Eight

The Technical Director of the NFF, Augustine Eguavoen has revealed that the Technical Department of the Football body will be fully represented at the NNL Super 8 playoff holding in Enugu early next month.

Eguavoen who declared his readiness to be in the Coal City Enugu to watch the games. ‘Cerezo’ as he is fondly called, described the NNL as a very important domestic league in Nigeria due to the abundance of young players who ply their trade in it.

Quoting his words, Eguavoen said “NNL is very important , it is a Nigeria Football Federation critical project, we have such important age bracket of players in the league that should serve to feed the national U-20 and U-23 teams. I can also say that coach of the Flying Eagles Ladan Bosso,should be in Enugu which obviously provides the platform for him to scout for players.”Cerezo as he is fondly called further quiped that the eight coaches of the qualified teams and their technical crew must ensure they portray the best of standards and quality at all times on and off the pitch “We expect the best of behaviours from the coaches and their crew to conform with global standard,the national and global focus will be on NNL and the conduct of the coaches will speak volume for us,we at NFF too we will closely monitor the coaches .Am sure they are forward looking ,they should concern themselves more with producing the best teams and deploying the best of tactics to excel”

Another Nigerian international Garba Lawal equally admonished the teams and their management to ensure better discipline.

“We can not afford to rubbish ourselves and the league,this league is important,i started my career with this league at Nigeria Union Bank (NUB) Football Club of Kaduna and I also had a club Real Stars FC also of Kaduna that played and coached in the NNL,all my life I always preach discipline,it is the watchword.”
