Super Eagles B Team Coach, Salisu Yusuf has assured that the two-day break granted the CHAN Eagles to observe the Christmas holidays will not affect the players’ preparation for the Africa Nations Championship slated for Morocco in January next year.
Speaking through the Eagles Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye, Yusuf revealed that he has mandated the 30 players jostling for positions in the team to be disciplined while on break.
He said the players had been giving their best in training to ensure they made the final squad to Morocco, adding that all hands were on deck to ensure the team excelled at the championship.
“The players have been briefed and I believe they are professionals. The two-day break is for the players to spend time with their families and settle any important issue that might affect their output on the pitch during the yuletide.
“This does not mean that it is mandatory that all the players must leave the camp. It is only training that will not take place by December 25 and 26, but the camp will still be open on those days.
“When the team resumes camp, preparations would intensify for the CHAN as the 30 players in camp are in high spirit to make the final cut to Morocco.”
