It is with great sadness that, once again, we have learned of the passing of another African legend. Former Orlando Pirates and Nigeria coach Shuaibu Amodu passed away on Friday, robbing the continent of another legend of the game.
This really is a heartfelt time for all African sports lovers, who have, in recent weeks, had to mourn the death of Muhammad Ali, Ted Dumitru, and Stephen Keshi, and now have to say goodbye to a man who coached Pirates from 1996 to 1997.
"God protect Nigeria and Pirates." – HDK 732VP
"R.I.P. Shuaibu." – Nenga Mqanduli
"What do you say to someone if things are like this? To the Super Eagles and the whole nation of Nigeria, you are in our prayers. As much as you beat us every time and in every level of soccer, we love you. May the Lord Almighty comfort you in this time of pain and give you strength." – Bra-Moss
Supporters Club would like to send its condolences to the family of Shuaibu and the nation of Nigeria.
