Again, Pinnick Makes Excuses For Another Super Eagles Failure
In one breath NFF President Amaju Pinnick said the federation will take responsibility for the Super Eagles (PICTURED) shock home defeat by little Central African Republic and in another breath, he gave excuses to why the three-time African champions failed to fly above their opponents, who are ranked 92 places below them on the FIFA Ranking.
The Eagles fell 1-0 in a 2022 World Cup qualifying match played in Lagos Thursday.
In an official statement, Pinnick again showed he is a master of deflection and in this case “the federation” and not him will take responsibility for the disgrace caused by the Eagles homes defeat.
“As a Football Federation, we take responsibility for this defeat,” Pinnick was quoted in the statement.
“We believe things will change positively in three days.
“We also believe that this loss is a massive wake-up call and could be the springboard to reset and motivate the team to keep giving their all to not only qualify for the World Cup but to perform well in Qatar.”
And at the same time, the quintessential showman was quick to put it on record that the same NFF gave the team all the support to succeed.
“This result has been a huge shock, especially after the NFF provided everything necessary to make the team comfortable and focused on the task at hand, even going the extra mile in a number of areas,” he defended stoutly.
“The Federation wishes to appreciate the Federal Government, the Lagos State Government and our partners and sponsors for their support to enable us provide the necessary comfort and conducive environment for the team to succeed.”
On social media, most fans have called for the resignation of coach Gernot Rohr and his main supporter, Pinnick.
