The Nigeria Football Federation has revealed that a testimonial will be organised for Vincent Enyeama, adding that he deserves an honourable exit from the Super Eagles.
“I told him that he did so well for Nigeria over the past 13-and-half years that he had been there, and by all means, is deserving of honourable exit. Whatever the situation, whether he decides to return to the team or not, NFF will organise a worthy testimonial match in his honour, because he served the nation so well.” NFF boss, Amaju affirmed.
On the row with Enyeama and Oliseh, Amaju maintained that “the head coach is in full charge of the team and the camp at all times, and that fact must be respected. The NFF will support and respect the decision of the head coach of any of the national teams at all times.
“Both Oliseh and Enyeama are true heroes of Nigeria football, if you look at what they achieved at different times. But Oliseh is head coach now and in charge of the team. We will continue to respect his contract; our role as a federation is advisory.”
He however disclosed that a code of conduct for players and officials of the various national teams will soon be implemented.
“A small group had been working on the document and I am happy to say that it is now ready for implementation. This will spell out how players and officials must conduct themselves while in any of the national camps, and minimise the probability of misunderstanding between coaches and players.”
He continued, “No player launches his career through the social media. When players are at their clubs, they don’t broadcast camp situation on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. The same restraint and discipline must be observed in the national camp.”
