The technical director of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), and former coach of the Super Eagles, Shuaibu Amodu, has died, the NFF announced early Saturday.
Mr. Amodu, a four-time coach of the national team, passed on on Friday night shortly after complaining of chest pain, the NFF said in a post on its Twitter handle. He was 58.
Mr. Amodu was appointed technical director of the Eagles in April 2016.
His death came as the nation is still reeling from the loss of Stephen Keshi, the country’s football legend, who died three days ago, aged 54.
