Nduka Ugbade has called for more involvement of ex-internationals in managing affairs of Nigerian football especially at the Glass House in Abuja.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is currently led by Amaju Pinnick but the country’s football has continued to dwindle under his leadership with the Super Eagles failing to qualifier for the African Nations Cup back-to-back.
Ugbade who was part of the Golden Eaglets technical crew led by Manu Garba to win the 2013 U17-World Cup in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), believes that ex-internationals have a lot to offer and should be engaged to run the affairs of the country’s football.
‘We have been talking about going back to the drawing board, people like us should be involved, we have been going to the drawing board for the past twenty years with no difference,’ he said.
”The likely solution to the down turn of Nigeria’s football is engaging ex-internationals in key positions so that they can influence our football development properly.”
Ugbade is currently available as he was removed from his post as assistant coach to Manu Garba who was resigned to the national under 17 team.
