NFF Announces Le Guen As New Super Eagles Coach
« on: July 18, 2016, 01:39:04 PM »


The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will today announce Frenchman Paul Le Guen as the Head Coach of the Nigerian's national football team, the Super Eagles.


Green made it clear the committee will only settle for the candidate they see as most qualified and capable of qualifying the Super Eagles for the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia.
He named the candidates as Nigerian Salisu Yusuf (54), Belgian Tom Saintfiet (43) and Frenchman Paul Le Guen (52) are the candidates in the running.


Saintfiet coached the National Teams of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Yemen, Malawi and Togo, and also worked with the Qatar U-17 side, Young Africans FC of Tanzania and Free State Stars FC in South Africa.

A dependable source close to the Federation told Daily Trust that the previous coach of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon has been picked ahead of Nigeria’s Salisu Yusuf and Belgian Tom Saintfiet by the recruitment panel based on his credentials and track record.

Our source said the panelists were impressed that besides qualifying an African side for the World Cup, Le Guen also has huge knowledge of European football which would benefit the country during the World Cup proper.

However, a statement from the NFF yesterday said the Technical and Development Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation will meet in Abuja today to interview three persons shortlisted for the Super Eagles’ Head Coach position and thereafter forward the name of the successful candidate to the NFF Board.

According to the statement, Chairman of the NFF Technical and Development Committee, Barrister Chris Green, told thenff.com yesterday that:

“We have concluded arrangements for the interview process to take place at the NFF secretariat on Monday and thereafter, we will forward the name of the successful candidate to the NFF Board, which will deliberate on it and thereafter make their decision public.”

Saintfiet coached the National Teams of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Yemen, Malawi and Togo, and also worked with the Qatar U-17 side, Young Africans FC of Tanzania and Free State Stars FC in South Africa.
