“So many things are involved. The area I am disappointed in, is the board room politics. It seems we did not  get the board room right. We have not gotten it right.

I sympathise with Nigerians, all the hopes were dashed. Including the players because so many of them cannot play again in the world cup. Within four years they will age out.

“The best thing we will have to do is for us to go back to our local league  and start building our local league. We need to start looking at the younger players.
