As Ministry, NFF Ban Scouts, Hangers-on From Super Eagles Camp

As parts of efforts to restore sanity to the senior national team football team, the Super Eagles and curb the activities of illegal scouts, the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has given a clear mandate to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to get rid the national team of agents and hangers-on.

Sports Minister Sunday Dare, said, “NFF must get rid of hangers-on and individuals who do not have clear mandates and are around the national team.  These are agents, scouts etc.  They should operate outside the perimeter.”

In this direction, the NFF was also advised to set up a scientific template to benchmark the performance of the Super Eagles as this will curb the problem of poor performance and mediocrity in the performance of the players.

It was also decided that henceforth, invitation of foreign-based players to the national team must be based on current form and performance. 

It was also agreed that foreign-based players’ performances must be properly monitored before they are invited to the Super Eagles.
