Former Nigerian forward, Daniel Amokachi blamed Amaju Pinnick led board Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for Super Eagles wobbling form.

The former Besiktas forward insisted the former FA boss choice of coaches is one of the reasons Nigeria’s Super Eagles failed to qualify for the ongoing World Cup in Qatar.

He made this known in an interview on Channels TV on Sunday, following Super Eagles poor showing against Portugal in an international friendly game, where the Super Eagles lost 4-0.

He said : “I am one of Gernot Rohr’s critics, but I believe the timing of his sack was wrong. They left it too late, and they paid the price. Gernot Rohr was not the right person for the job, but the timing of his sack was wrong.

“Then they brought in Cerezo (Austin Eguavoen) who did his best and had a good run at the Afcon.”

“But the difference is they don’t give the local confident to bring in his own staff, and they entangle into his business.”

“What we heard was on why they didn’t make it to Qatar was that on the eve of the game against Ghana, some players heard they are going to start. Maybe they had an interactions with member of the technical crew.”

“And before the game, when the players sat in front of the tactical board, there was a different list entirely, and that tell there is an interference from some officials who want certain players involved,”he said.
