Stating this at the first training session with the students of the academy, Briton expressed happiness at the high level of mastery of the game displayed by the students and the great talents he noticed in them.

Gilligan who was unveiled some weeks ago by the administrator of the academy, Mr. Kumbi Titiloye, has fully resumed duty and has been having training sessions with the students both on the pitch and in the classrooms.

It would be recalled that the Briton, who replaced the former director of the academy, Clemence Westerhof, promised to bring to bear his age long experience in football to transform the students inherited from his predecessor to better players for both Nigerian and European leagues.

Just like his predecessor, Gilligan has chosen to stay on the campus of the academy together with the administrator of the academy in order to ensure quality control of the students.

Speaking with Grassroots sports, the chief coach of the academy, Paul Odey, described the new director as a good tactician whose wealth of experience will greatly improve the students’ tactical and technical understanding of the game.

According to Odey, since the foreign director‘s arrival in the academy, the students have become more serious with their activities, noting that his presence has equally brought joy to the students and other employees of the academy.

“The students are very happy and inspired by the presence of the new technical director in the academy. There is a mentality among our players which makes them to respect white coaches more than the black ones. That is responsible for the change in the attitudes of the players,” Coach Odey said.
