Nigeria’s senior football team, Super Eagles have been handed the new ‘Code of Conduct’ booklet by Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) ahead of this year’s World Cup in Brazil to ensure better conduct by players and officials.
The federation on Thursday in Atlanta, Georgia, United States handed out the much-hyped hand book on code of conduct while in the national team to players and officials of the Super Eagles.
The 18-page document clearly outlines what is expected of players, officials and even the federation during camping and major tournaments.
“The document is done in good faith and to ensure that players and officials know their obligations and how to properly conduct themselves, while the NFF will ensure that it also fulfils its own part of the bargain during major tournaments”, Maigari said.
It would be recalled that the Super Eagles were in the news last year when they refused to fly to Brazil to participate in the Confederation Cup following a disagreement with NFF concerning their bonuses.
Eagles return today
Meanwhile, the Nigerian delegation to the United States is expected back in Nigeria on Friday evening after playing a goalless draw against the El Tri of Mexico in an international friendly preparatory to 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Super Eagles Media Officer, Ben Alaiya said the team will arrive through the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos.
