NFF To Hire Foreign Tactician For Super Eagles

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced plans to contract a foreign technical adviser for the Senior Men’s National Team, Super Eagles.

This comes after widespread criticism of the handling of the team bt coach Finidi George.

The Executive Committee rose from its board meeting on Wednesday and “resolved to employ an expatriate Technical Adviser for the Super Eagles in the coming weeks, ahead of the AFCON qualifiers and the remaining FIFA World Cup qualifying matches”.

“The Committee resolved to beef up the NFF Technical Department with more qualitative hands. Equally, the Technical and Development Sub-Committee will be re-jigged with immediate effect,” a communique released after the meeting said.

The communique didn’t however disclose if the current Super Eagles coach will work under the new foreign tactician when employed or be sacked.

While apologising to Nigerians for the dismal output and subsequent very poor returns in four out of 10 matches in the ongoing qualification series for the 2026 FIFA World Cup finals, the Executive Committee pledged to work assiduously and put necessary measures in place to ensure a better-prepared squad ahead of the AFCON 2025 qualifiers in September this year and the resumption of the World Cup qualifiers in March 2025.
