Former Super Eagles coach and technical director of NFF, Amodu Shuaibu, has died, reports indicated on Saturday.
According to source, Amodu died in Benin, just a few days after the announcement of the death of ex-Super Eagles captain and coach, Stephen Keshi.
Report said Amodu died in his sleep, after complaining of chest pains on Friday.
Amodu coached the Eagles several times, qualifying the national team twice for the World Cup in 2002 and 2010 but was not allowed to manage the national team at both World Cups.
The coach also led BCC Lions to win the 1989 FA Cup, breaking a long time jinx of northern clubs’ inability to win the trophy.
The following year, he led the club to win the Africa Cup Winners. He was the Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation before his death.
No statement has been made on the cause of his death but close sources say he didn’t wake up from his sleep.
