The CAF General Secretary wrote further: “This joint working group, to be led by FIFA, will analyze the applicable legal framework and the governance structure, mandate, and mission of Normalisation Committees, and make suggestions to the FIFA Council accordingly.”

He is however yet to comment on the resigning matter but he said the Super Eagles of Nigeria is currently in search of a good coach. It is not just the Super Eagles that need a coach as even the other lower teams of the country are also looking for a coach like the home-based Eagles and also the U17 and U20.
