The President of Nigeria Football Coaches Association (NFCA), Ladan Bosso has described the ongoing Berackiah/Abigol Football Coaching Clinic in Kano as the ideal way to improve the efficiency of Nigerian coaches.
The Nigeria U-20 handler (otherwise known as Flying Eagles) noted that the clinic had found a good home with the NFCA mandate and identifying with it is a reflection of the pressing need to develop coaches from the grassroots level to the top cadre.
He said the NFCA has been working closely with all series of coaching clinic programmes with the purpose of assessing their delivery and also deciding which best suit the categories of coaches in the country.
“At any point in time we always assess them (coaching programmes) and that’s why we are here now to watch and assess which is best suit for different categories of the coaches in Nigeria.”
Bosso extolled the Berackiah/Abigol Clinic for beating expectations in terms of organisation and delivery while tipping them for a promotion in mandate and purpose.
“We haven’t found them (Berackiah/Abigol) wanting of going against our mandate so they are good to go and we’re even looking at how we can promote them beyond the grassroots coaching.”
While expressing the need for football identity in terms of philosophy and ideology, he revealed that the NFCA is planning to unveil yet another coaching education program tagged “Digital Assistant Coach”.
The former FC IfeanyiUbah tactician explained that, “Digital Assistant Coach basically entails how coaches can use numbers and electronic gadgets in their job in order to enhance effectiveness”.
The 5-day clinic which has now covered five geopolitical zones in the country will end on Friday 19th of February in Kano.
The North West Zone B schedule of the clinic will run in Kaduna State from Monday 22nd- Friday 26th of February.
