U-17 team boss suspends programme over Amodu’s death

Golden Eaglets’ Head Coach,
Manu Garba, has postponed the
on-going screening of budding
talents into the U-17 National
Team in honour of former Super Eagles tactician, Amodu Shuaibu whose death was announced on Saturday.

Garba said Amodu’s death was
not only tragic but a personal loss
to him because it was under the
watch of the late Super Eagles
coach that he captained and won
the FA Cup with El-Kanemi
Warriors in the 1990s.

“This is a great loss to me,” Garba
told thenff.com . “I spoke with
Amodu just two days ago and we
discussed about our screening,
and I feel so sad that he has gone
few days after we lost Stephen
Keshi. Amodu was my coach at El-
Kanemi Warriors when I
captained El-Kanemi to win the
FA Cup and we have remained
ever so close ever since.

“He was a man with a reservoir
of knowledge and we all enjoyed
his presentation during the CAF
License A Coaching Course here
in Abuja and I can’t just believe
Amodu is dead. I’m too sad over
this loss and in his honour, we
have to call off our training
session today (Saturday) and
God’s willing, we shall continue
on Monday,” Garba said.
