The executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have mandated the technical committee to recommend another Super Eagles coach within week after negotiations with Frenchman Paul Le Guen broke down.
However, the executive committee have approved the appointment of Salisu Yusuf as Super Eagles coach, Bitrus Bewarang as technical director and Nduka Ugbade as Goden Eaglets assistant coach.
According to a communiqué after an executive committee meeting in Abuja on Wednesday, it was decided that the technical committee recommend another head coach for the country.
“Executive Committee instructed the Technical and Development Sub–Committee to, within the next seven (7) days, recommend a candidate for the post of Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles,” read the statement in part.
“It noted that the refusal of Mr. Paul Le Guen, earlier recommended by the Sub–Committee, to accept to be given targets as well as unwillingness to live in Nigeria, made his candidature unacceptable to the Board.
“Committee also disapproved of Mr. Le Guen’s desire to come to the job with two assistants, which would make Nigerian coaches redundant.
“The Committee noted that it was the desire to show transparency that made the Technical and Development Sub –Committee to make public its recommendation in the first place.”
The statement added: “The Committee further resolved that any candidate that would be so recommended by the Technical and Development Sub –Committee must have accepted to be handed targets and must also be willing to live in Nigeria.
“In addition, such a candidate must agree to undergo other internal evaluation.”
