Sports Minister Instructs NFF To Ban Scouts, Hangers-On From Super EaglesPublished: November 26, 2020
In a bid to restore sanity to the National team and curb the activities of illegal scouts, the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has given a clear mandate to the Nigeria Football Federation to rid the National Team of agents and hangers-on.
According to the Minister, Mr. Sunday Dare, "NFF must get rid of hangers on and individuals who do not have clear mandates and are around the National team. These are agents, scouts etc. They should operate outside the perimeter."
In the light of this, the NFF was also advised to set up a scientific template to benchmark the performance of the Super Eagles.
This will curb the problem of poor performance and mediocrity in the performance of the players.
It was also decided that henceforth, invitation of foreign based players to the National team must be based on current form and performance.
Foreign based players performance must be properly monitored before been invited to the team
