Tinubu mourns Nigeria’s global trophy-winning coach, Sebastian



President Bola Tinubu has received the news of the passing of one of Nigeria’s finest football coaches, Sebastian Brodericks-Imasuen, with a heavy heart.

This is contained in a statement by Chief Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, on Sunday in Abuja.

Sebastian, a footballer-turned-coach, led Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets to victory at the inaugural FIFA U-16 World Championship in China in 1985.

“Tinubu celebrates the football icon, who brought hope and inspired national pride by his industry, devotion, and diligence on and off the pitch, describing him as a true Nigerian hero,” said the statement.

The president sympathised with the Imasuen family, the football community, the government of Edo and all those who mourn this agonising loss while praying for the repose of the soul of the dearly departed.
