Super Eagles Coach Admits, ‘NFF Will Determine My Future’


Nigeria U23 team coach, Imama Amapakabo has revealed that his future with the national team will be determined by the Nigeria Football Federation.

Nigeria missed out on a chance to be part of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic football event after crashing out of the ongoing CAF U23 AFCON in Egypt.


Imama’s side needed an outright victory against South Africa to qualify for the semi-finals, but fell short after playing a goalless result and Ivory Coast pipped Zambia.


The result means Nigeria U23 team will not be participating at next year’s Olympics in Tokyo, prompting call for Imama’s sack.


However, Imama who also failed to succeed in the WAFU Cup nor qualify for the CHAN 2020, concedes that his fate is not in his hands.


“It is totally out of my hands. We have to look at the future; this has ended, whichever way we want to look at it,” Imama told


“And it depends on what the federation wants in terms of going forward.”
