Nigerians on Twitter pay an emotional tribute to late Super Eagles coach Shaibu Amodu who died on this day four years ago at the age of 58.
Amodu’s death comes three days after that of late Stephen Keshi, also a former coach of Nigeria’s senior national team.
Keshi assisted Amodu at the 2002 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations in Mali.
Amodu managed the senior team at different times, the first being after the exit of Clemens Westerhof in 1994.
When Keshi was sacked in July 2015, Amodu took over until Sunday Oliseh was appointed.
The NFF penned their tribute on their verified Twitter handle on Wednesday.
On this day 4 years ago, Late Coach Shuaibu Amodu departed this world. We miss you coachie, continue to rest in peace. Thank you for all your contributions to the development of Nigerian Football. #WeRememberAmodu pic.twitter.com/1greYyg4Kh— The NFF 🇳🇬 (@thenff) June 10, 2020

One of the most underated Nigerian Coaches, qualified Nigeria for world cup twice….. And was never given the opportunity to coach the team at a world cup. NFF could look back and shake thier heads😙— Ayinmiro Isaiah (@AyinmiroI) June 10, 2020
Big Boss died few days after Coach Amodu— Saint Ulric (@erikefe) June 10, 2020
NFF treat this man badly during his lifetime and it’s a shame on you NFF— Tkgold (@TkgoldG) June 10, 2020
Unfortunately the NFF did not cover themselves in glory. Twice Shuaibu qualified Nigeria for the world Cup and both times he was denied the chance to manage them at the World Cup. It was scandalous and we will never forget it.— Ayodele Odumade (@Mafisportsmedia) June 10, 2020
May his soul continue to rest in peace.— T-wealth (@Saheedtoriola) June 10, 2020
