Former Sunshine Stars technical adviser, Austin Eguavoen said he left the club because the Nigeria Professional Football League is too dirty.
The former Nigeria defender, who recently resigned his position after 45 days in charge of Sunshine, said this on Talk FM, Lagos on Wednesday.
“I left Sunshine stars because our league (NPFL) is too dirty,” said the former defender, who has coached Nigeria virtually at all levels.
Eguavoen took charge of only five league fixtures at Sunshine, recording two wins and suffered two defeats.
His resignation had been described as a product of a corrupt system by former Nigeria captain Segun Odegbami.
He said: “It’s a psychological thing, this has been an issue for a very long time and nothing has been done.
“I don’t know if anything can be done in this regard because it seems nothing has been done to make our referees better.
“It’s like corruption in this country it has eaten deep into the system, in fact that’s what is wrong with our football.
” It is the same set of people that have been there that are still there so you don’t expect much from them.”
