NFF: Abba Kyari was a colossus

first_imgRelatedPosts Buhari to Okorocha @ 58: Your large heart will always stand you out Buhari to Kaduna indigenes: Without peace there can’t be development Buhari mourns Emir of Zazzau, Shehu Idris The Nigeria Football Federation has expressed profound shock and a sense of deep sorrow at the passage on Friday of Mallam Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari. “Mallam Abba Kyari’s death is a big loss to the NFF, Nigerian Football family and the entire country as a whole,” NFF’s Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire, said in a statement on Sunday. “Nigeria’s football industry has lost a friend and a great man who showed tremendous interest in the progress of the country’s game. He was, indeed, a colossus.” Olajire said the NFF retains abiding fond memories of Kyari’s love and support for the various National Teams, accentuated by the passion, energy and resolve with which the Cambridge-educated lawyer and former banking titan attended to and presented to President Buhari matters concerning the teams. He said: “The NFF never had reason, even for one day, to doubt Mallam Kyari’s commitment to the development of Nigerian football and the National Teams. He had keen interest in the teams and treated matters concerning them and Nigerian football generally with his well-known empathy and utmost sense of duty. “In his interactions with the leadership of NFF and even the teams, Mallam Kyari was an embodiment of simplicity, humanity and integrity. His personal presence at the airport in Abuja to receive the victorious Super Falcons’ contingent to the Women Africa Cup of Nations competition in Ghana in December 2018 only underscored his passion and keen interest in matters of the National Teams and Nigeria football. “We loved him, but Almighty God loves him more. We can only pray that God grants his soul eternal rest and also grants his immediate family, President Buhari, top officials of Government, his friends and indeed the Nigerian Football family the fortitude to bear the big loss.”Tags: Abba KyariNFFNigeria Football FederationPresident Muhammadu Buharilast_img read more

Kerevi keen to combine with Beale

first_imgKerevi’s 2016 Wallabies debut came at a time when Beale was out injured, prior to his departure for Wasps.That crossing of stars has left the pair with very little on field time together but that will, in all likelihood, change this year with Beale back on deck and Kerevi in career best form this Super Rugby season.The star outside centre was cut down by injury in the Reds’ loss to the Blues but prior to that he was the clear standout 13 in the competition and that was recognised this week, when he was named in the Super Rugby Team of the Year.”Kurtley is an exceptional player with an exceptional rugby brain,” Kerevi said.”We have been doing a lot of opposed stuff with the boys and trying different combinations in the centres.”For me, when I do train with Kurtley or train against him just seeing how he plays excites me.”I know he can bring that X factor to the backline and then we have guys like Israel Folau out back, Tevita Kuridrani and Henry Speight out wide that can finish off amazing tries.”Kerevi said the squad was happy to be past the fitness aspect of Bledisloe Cup preparations, as the team starts to hone in on how they will go about conquering the all powerful, all conquering All Blacks.”Here in Cessnock we have been training a lot with the team and the team shape,” he said.”it’s been really good to see how other boys play in the shape and see how they express themselves throughout the shape – it’s really exciting.”Injury has cruelled Kerevi’s young career to date.He cemented his spot as Michael Cheika’s go to outside centre after making his Test debut against England last year, only to have an ankle injury in the third Bledisloe Cup Test rule him out of the Spring Tour.Then, after starring for the Reds all season, the syndesmosis injury ruled him out of any June calculations.He is easing back into full contact this week but remains confident he will be fit and firing next Saturday.”I guess I don’t really reflect on it in a bad way,” he said of the injury sustained against New Zealand last year.”I took the opportunities that I got last year and brought it to this year.”I want to make sure I take every opportunity this year.”This group can change history and be part of it, that’s what excites me.”last_img read more
