Amodu again?

There’s something about “that” animal that visits its own puke. At least that what I was told in primary school I think; that there’s an animal that does that.

And there’s something about the ex that tries to “work things out” with his ex. Not all do though. Some think you need to “give away old toys” to the less priviledged.

There’s also something about Nigerian football and the name Amodu Shaibu. If you didn’t know, he has been appointed to be the “interim” manager of the Super Eagles. Or maybe manager and supervisor at the same time.

As annoying as that move sounds to a football lover like me, it feels good to know that Nigeria’s Football House is full of eggheads. They’ve succeeded in making the Super Eagles slide down the pecking order, faster this time.

Of course, you know it. Going back to Amodu is an indication of a couple of things (at least to me):

– Some powerful people who are permanently in the “Glass House” must love that name. The Amodu name. It is the reason why they keep bringing him back and sometimes… going as far as creating circumstances that’ll bring him back. What? Is it not possible? No be Naija we dey? Abegi!

– Amodu has done a lot for Nigeria… so much so that we can’t do without him. Our football can’t live without him, literarily.

Before you conclude that the writer hates our new “interim coach,” he doesn’t. He loves Nigerian football so much. The writer is just allergic to the blatant display of the “running around in circles” sport that the leaders of Nigerian football have suddenly fallen in love with. Blame it on the Nigerian-football love.

And to think that Amodu, knowing that he’ll get kicked out once he qualifies the team for a World Cup tournament again, is confusing.

What kind of man loves that much?

Whatever it is, I can already predict (I’m sure you have too) that he’ll get the boot – again, for the umpteenth time. And I’m sure he knows this too. His experience must keep repeating this fact in his head.
I hope he does well but how can he revamp the Super Eagles with all that “sack music” playing in his head? I mean, how well will you do a job if you knew you’ll get the boot?

I guessed right.
