Published by Guardian on Tue, 14 May 2013

Having said so, the German will be paid by the NFA and not from Obuh's pocket,' Olajire said.The FIFA U-20 World Cup is slated to hold in Turkey from June 21 to July 13, and the Flying Eagles are in Group B, alongside: Cuba, Portugal and Korea Republic.Meanwhile, a former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Dosu Joseph has supported the decision to hire a foreign assistant coach for the Flying Eagles in the buildup to the U-20 World Cup in Turkey.Dosu told NAN in Lagos that Obuh's decision to hire a foreigner was a good step, adding that his recent coaching course in Germany might have influenced the decision.He added that Germans were technically and tactically gifted in their understanding of the game, and could play a crucial role in the team's outing.'I believe it's a good step in the right direction. The most important thing is for the team to perform well in Turkey.'Obuh recently went for a course in Germany and understands clearly what he passed through, and I believe that might have influenced his decision.'More so, we all know the Germans to be tactical in their understanding of the game and I am sure the man can make meaningful contributions to the team,' he added.
