Sports Minister Sets Deadline on Appointment of New Super Eagles Coach

The new Super Eagles head coach will be revealed within the next two weeks, according to Sports Minister John Enoh.

Since the contract of Jose Peseiro expired at the end of February, the job has remained empty.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) technical committee is said to have narrowed down the field of candidates to three coaches for the head position.

“What I can assure is the senior national team will have a new coach in the next one week or at most two weeks,” the minister told Channel Sports.

Enoh also said the NFF has taken their time to do a thorough job make sure the Super Eagles qualify for the World Cup after a poor start.

The Super Eagles it would be recalled drew their first two World Cup qualifiers with Lesotho and Zimbabwe last December.

“The campaign for the next World Cup has started and we didn’t start well, it was a shaky one and therefore there’s a lot of mileage to cover,” Enoh added.

“We didn’t qualify for the last World Cup and can’t afford not to be at the next edition.

“The NFF know what Nigeria lost not being at the last World Cup and are doing everything not to repeat same mistake that will lead to the same disappointment.”
