Just four days after the death of Former coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi, another death of a former coach and current NFF techinical director Amodu Shuaibu has been announced by the NFF official twitter page.


The late Amodu has always contributed his quota to the development of football in Nigeria.

Under his stewardship, Nigeria qualified for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa but Amodu was sacked despite the team’s third-place finish at the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola.

It was the second time he had been removed from his post ahead of a World Cup finals tournament – Amodu was also fired ahead of the 2002 edition after Nigeria finished third at the 2002 Nations Cup in Mali.

The late Amodu was born April 18, 1958 in Edo State. He managed the Super Eagles between 1998–1999, 2001–2002 and 2008–2010 and was brought back briefly last year before his elevation to head the NFF technical department.
