News Katsina United coach urges NFF to make age-grade teams home-based specific

Katsina United FC board under the new chairman Prince Abdulssamad Badamasi have confirmed the appointment of Henry Makinwa as new Head Coach after the former Abia Warriors gaffer agreed to a one-year deal to succeed Abdullahi Usman Biffo who resigned a few months ago.

Katsina United coach Henry Makinwa has also joined voices with current Plateau United coach Abdul Maikaba in urging the NFF to make the age-grade national teams home-based specific.

Makinwa joined his voice with other football stakeholders in the country to urge the NFF to make the age-grade football teams home-based specific.

Speaking, Makinwa noted that getting foreign-based for the U17 is totally absurd as the age-grade teams shouldn’t be stuffed with foreign-based players who aren’t really exceptional.

“The nucleus of the team should be for players at home, I think the NFF should tell the coaches that will handle any of the age-grade national teams to consider this,’ he said.
