FIFA Bans Nigerian Coach Remi Amadi For Two years

FIFA Bans Nigerian Coach Remi Amadi For Two years (Updated: Wednesday 27th October 2021, 07:32 PM)


World football governing body, FIFA has placed a two-year ban on Remi Amadi, the coach of Cofine FC of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

FIFA's Disciplinary Committee conveyed this decision to the Nigeria Football Federation, while the NFF made this known in a statement on Tuesday.

Amadi was found guilty of attempting to manipulate the outcome of a match seven months ago.

According to the statement issued by the NFF, Amadi admitted to having attempted to manipulate the outcome or result of the match between Cofine FC and Bussdor FC as recorded in an audio conversation tendered as evidence.
 
Based on its numerous findings, the NFF’s Disciplinary Committee earlier slammed a two-year ban on the erring coach and an N500,000 fine on Cofine FC.

The statement read, “The world body’s Disciplinary Committee conveyed this decision to the Nigeria Football Federation, and it is a consequence of a similar ban imposed on the gaffer by the NFF Disciplinary Committee at its meeting of 16th August 2021.

“The NFF Integrity Unit forwarded the said decision of the NFF Disciplinary Committee and all the relevant documentations to the FIFA Disciplinary Committee via a letter dated 25th August 2021, requesting the Committee to extend the sanction to have a worldwide effect, in accordance with Article 66, FIFA Disciplinary Code.

“The worldwide effect was activated by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee at its meeting of 5th October 2021.”


Amadi is unable to work as a coach in any football club or national side under FIFA' s jurisdiction again.
