Hire ex-internationals as scouts, Akwuegbu tells NFF

Former Super Eagles player Benedict Akwuegbu has asked the Nigeria Football Federation to bring in new sets of ex-internationals to help the gaffer scout for the best local league players.

Speaking to, the former Nigerian international said the only way to bring sanity and transparency in Rohr’s job is to allow fresh hands to come in and assist in the development of football in the country.

“The NFF needs the ex-players on the board because some of these ex-players can also scout for good players in the league for the team because they have played in so many leagues and if they see a good player they can easily identify.

“You can’t be recycling the same people all the time, it’s high time we bring in new players into the board to assist when new ex-players come in, they will come with new things.”
