The former Barcelona player also declared that the technical crew would work hard to correct the lapses noticed in the team in Niger Republic.
He said: “I have just ended the search for new players to be injected into the Golden Eaglets. Getting enough players to fight for shirts in the team will enable me select the best legs. After the African championship, we have to correct some of the anomalies that affected the team in Niger,” he said.
