Cape Town - Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick said that a concerted effort would be made to ensure that coaches in that country are fully equipped to enhance the development of the sport.

Pinnick announced, on Tuesday, that the federation would send a group of Nigerian football coaches to England for a refresher course, which will be funded by the NFF.

The intention is to have those plans implemented before Nigeria embarks on 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying and certainly before the campaign to qualify for the 2018 World Cup begins.

"In the short term package to reposition our football we will send some of our coaches and ex internationals to England for refresher courses in match reading," Football411 reports Pinnick as saying.

"They will also receive orientation abroad on crisis management and other related courses that would help us improve on the quality of information to be given the coaches before, during and after games," added Pinnick, who has the unenviable task of lifting Nigerian football out of its slumber before his tenure at the helm is completed.
