Former Golden Eaglets and Super Eagles coach, Sebatien Brodericks is now part of the 1 Game campaign.
Brodericks who is now retired told 1 Game’s China Acheru that he has decided to lend his voice against the violence in our football stadia and match viewing centers.
“I played my football in the 60s and early 70s and I was never a victim of football violence,” Brodericks said.
“I also coached up to 2006 and I can add that as a coach I never faced any such thing but I hear about it so much these days and I believe it is bad for our football,” he said.
“I have been reading about this campaign on the pages of newspapers and I know it is a just cause that will benefit Nigerian football.
“My name is Sebaetien Brodericks Imasuen, a retired coach and I support 1 Game. Let us play football without violence.”
Brodericks was head coach of Nigeria’s U16 team in 1985 when they won the FIFA World Cup and he was part of the Super Eagles team in the Clemens Westahof era.
He also coached at club level with Udoji United, Bendel Insurance, El Kanemi amongst others.
The 1 GAME campaign was founded in June 2010 with an aim of combating violence and fanaticism in football. The initiative draws public support through sign-ups on its website www.play1game.org.
