Nduka Ugbade has been sacked by NFF
Nduka Ugbade, the head coach of Nigeria’s U-17 national football team, recently faced a major setback in his career when he was sacked by the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF). The news of his dismissal came as a shock to many in the football community, as Ugbade had been with the team for over a decade and had played a pivotal role in their success.
According to the NFF, Ugbade’s sacking was due to “administrative reasons” and was not related to his performance on the pitch. However, many fans and analysts have expressed their disappointment with the decision, citing Ugbade’s experience and dedication to the team as reasons why he should have been retained.
Ugbade first joined the U-17 coaching staff in 2007 and helped lead the team to victory at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2015. He was also part of the coaching team that took the team to the final of the same competition in 2019.
Ugbade’s departure from the team has sparked mixed reactions from fans and analysts. While some have criticized the decision of the NFF, the NFF reiterated that it was a necessary decision.
