Former governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, has said it is easier to win the World Cup than to win the African Champions League title, stressing that if given the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to manage, he would bring the World Cup to Nigeria in three years.
Kalu made the disclosure on Saturday during an interview in his office in Abuja.
“It is an easy job, it is not difficult, we have the human and capital resources. World Cup is the easiest thing to win, the African Champions League Cup is harder,” he said.
The sport enthusiast, who gave Enyimba International a branded identity, explained that the problem with Nigerians is that they do not allow the people who are knowledgeable about something to do it.
Dr Kalu further noted that the problem with the Nigerian coaches and managers was that they are lazy and do not do their homework very well, stressing that Football is not about being in the office, you must be on the field and have an in-depth knowledge of the game.
