After Ex-Super eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi resigned , there has been a recent scramble on who to replace him .
Two prominent nigerians have been nominated which are Sunday Oliseh Ex- Eagles Captain and Ex-coach Amodu Shuaibu.According to KickOffNigeria.com Technical Director of the NFF, Shuaibu Amodu, who has had three spells with the national team is expected to be put in temporary charge while the NFF shop for a replacement. Meanwhile, former captain Oliseh is considered to be the preference of the NFF to take over from Keshi on a long term.
Oliseh currently working with the FIFA technical study group has won over many people because of his immense knowledge of the game,which is why the NFF are courting him.
“It’s not a secret that Sunday Oliseh is the anointed one among us at the NFF, and the reason is obvious six years ago with Keshi in attendance as well, Oliseh came out top after an interview session but we were scared of gambling on him because he has no coaching experience prior to that interview, we asked him to understudy Amodu Shuaibu but he refused. The closest after him was then under-23 coach Samson Siasia but at that time he was preparing the Olympic team for the Beijing Olympics and we asked him to pick one as he can’t combine both, he opted for the Olympic team, We had no choice than to give it to Amodu Shuaibu”- The Nigeria Football Federation Federation, NFF
“With all due respect to Keshi back then he came last in the interview among them all, but before Samson Siasia was appointed they were the only two in contention, so when Siasia failed we hired him but we still have it at the back of our mind that Sunday Oliseh will one day be our coach and there is no better time for it to come to pass than now”- The Nigeria Football Federation Federation, NFF
The NFF have not reached a final decision as the plans are being made to put to an end their liaison with Keshi before a new coach is appointed.
Who do you think should be the new super eagles coach ? Oliseh or Amodu
