Eaglets get code of conduct Golden Eaglets have been issued a code of conduct and warned to adhere strictly to camp rules as new troupe swell the number of players at their CJ Planet Hotel Camp in Abuja to 30.
The team welcomes new recruits who scaled through the screening hurdle as well as proper documentation following almost one month of intensive exercise.
At a brief tête-à-tête with officials Monday night, both old and new players were advised to be guided with camping rules as regards timing; feeding; sleeping hours; friendship; respect; hard work; proper use of telephone; good personal hygiene and appearance amongst others.
Head coach Emmanuel Amuneke (MON), reiterated that the players were picked based on merit and must, therefore continue to work hard to justify their inclusion into the team.
“I want to remind you that this is a national team set up which is quite different from what you are used to in your various academies and home,” said the 1994 African Footballer of the Year who cut his teeth at modest Oxjack Boys Club in Lagos.”We are all friends irrespective of where you are coming from but our appeal to you to be
good conduct and do your very best.
“We don’t want you to have the impression that you have made it after the screening but to see your selection as a new challenge for you and work harder in the days ahead.
“You have been briefed about the need to be of good conduct and it’s in your best interest and that of the team to follow the rules unless you want us to send you home,” he added.
Similarly, Prince Udofia, Golden Eaglets’ coordinator who is charged with the responsibility of proper monitoring of the lads on a daily basis, warned he wouldn’t hesitate to report anyone caught breaking the team’s code of conduct to the appropriate authority.
