Amokachi praised the club's leadership and expressed optimism that investments like VFC's will be very beneficial for Nigerian football.

Former Super Eagles captain and coach Daniel Amokachi believes that Nigeria will benefit from projects like Vandrezzer FC. 

The Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Sports made the remarks while on a tour of the Vandrezzer FC clubhouse and facilities in Shelter Afrique, Uyo, on Saturday, October 29, 2022.

“I’ve never been here, but I know from what we see on social media, from what we hear from coaches, players, the fans, and the media because when something is good, it can’t be hidden,” Amokachi told VFC media in a chat.

“They said you don’t light a candle and keep it under the bed, you light a candle to put it to brighten, and that’s what Vandrezzer FC is all about,” he said.

Amokachi, a member of the recently formed Interim Management Committee to reposition the Nigerian league, praised the club’s leadership and expressed optimism that investments like VFC’s will be very beneficial for Nigerian football.

“I am a living proof now with what I see, that there is hope for Nigerian football because football is business.”

“If you have an individual who can invest so much because he still has the belief that Nigerian football would be transformed to be business, the way the Honorouble Minister has pointed it to be, with the mandate of the President of the Federal Republic, then definite we are on the right path” concluded the former Ranchers Bees, Club Brugge, Besiktas, and Colorado Rapids forward. 

In addition to visiting the VFC clubhouses, the Tunisia 94 AFCON winner also went to a VFC Academy training session. There, he talked to the excited kids and the Alfred Madaki and Patrick Udo coaching staff and then gave the team N300,000.

The VFC main squad is currently on break, while the club management perfects structures and strategies ahead of the coming football season.
