The Nigeria Football Federation will not probe allegations of bribery leveled against Golden Eaglets coach Manu Garba, so says NFF Technical Committee chairman, Chris Green.
Manu Bribery Scandal will not be in NFF’s Agenda
The NFF Technical Committee meets today in Abuja to discuss the future of the various national teams and amid widespread reports of allegations of corruption against the U17 boys’ coach, the NFF say it will not form part of their agenda.
“We will discuss the future of our national teams and look at the issue of getting a substantive coach but we will not probe anybody,” Green said.
Manu has been conducting a screening exercise for the Nigeria U17’s in Abuja but it has been marred by allegations of corruption against him, as he is accused of collecting bribes from agents in order to select their players to the team.
This is not the first time that such controversy is trailing Manu, as he was also accused of collecting bribes to field certain players during the last FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand.
It however remains to be seen what action will be taken by the NFF on the issue.
