Olarewanju Yemi Daniel said he is going to bring professionalism to the U17 national team after he was appointed to assist Head Coach Nduka Ugbade by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Daniel, describing the appointment as a big challenge, said he has garnered experience in the past four years having worked with different national clubs. He added that working alongside other technical crew will produce great results, The Trumpet gathered.

The former coach of Vandrezzer FC explained that the U17 national team is the bedrock of the Super Eagles and anything short of excellence will affect the Nigerian senior men’s football team because a lot of U17 players will not progress to the next level if they fail.

He said: “I am a young coach so, with my experience of what I’ve been doing for the past four years, I think it’s going to come in handy with other technical crew that you know, we were selected together.
