Another Ex Super Eagles Coach, Amodu Shuaibu Is Dead

Shuaibu Amodu, 58 had shockingly passed away merely 3 days after the death of former Super Eagles international and coach, Stephen Keshi.
The bad news that has sent more fears down the spines of the NFF and other authorities in the Nigerian football circle was broken by the NFF through its official Twitter page.

Amodu has managed a number of club sides in Nigeria, such as BCC Lions, El-Kanemi Warriors, and Shooting Stars; he also managed Orlando Pirates in South Africa.

He first managed the Nigerian national team from April 2001 to February 2002. Amodu later stated that his dismissal was “unfair” and also said that, a month later, he had yet to receive a formal letter confirming his dismissal.


He was re-appointed manager in April 2008. In December 2009 the Nigeria Football Federation stated that Amodu was under pressure, and in January 2010 there was speculation about his future. He was sacked in February 2010.

Amodu was appointed technical director of Nigeria’s national teams in May 2013.

He was re-appointed Nigeria manager in October 2014, replacing Stephen Keshi. It was his fifth spell in charge of the country. Keshi returned to the role two weeks later but was fired in July 2015 and Amodu took over the Eagles again temporarily. He was replaced by Sunday Oliseh on a permanent basis later that month.

The Nigerian Football Federation announced his death on the morning of June 11, 2016.
