Ex-Super Eagle Assistant Coach Blames NFF For Keshi Dissmisal
Former Super Eagles Assistant Coach, Sylvanus Okpalla has picked holes in the manner his former boss, Stephen Keshi was sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation.
The former Nigeria international who was guest of Vanguard Sports Desk yesterday said the NFF were unfair in the treatment meted out on Keshi, insisting that ‘’they should have allowed him serve out his contract.’’
Okpalla who is still out of job since his disengagement from the Super Eagles in 2013 said, “there is no law or FIFA rule that says that the football federation cannot sack a coach. But if they must do that there are obligations they must meet. Also, there is no law which states that a coach cannot seek another job when under employment.
Okpalla whose disengagement by the NFF resulted in his dragging the football house to Court of Arbtration for Sports, said the NFF was in a hurry to see Keshi out.
