    Tor….they are beginning to listen to us small small. If AlAhly of Egypt can for the 1st time in their history hire a BLACK MAN as their coach….a black man from south Africa for that matter, then all those who keep complaining ‘nobody wants to give them jobs because they are black’ should bow their heads in shame. If they dont give you jobs in Europe because you are black, are they denying you jobs in Africa too because you are black……? The era of lame excuses is gone.
    Congratulations and Kudos to Mr Eguavoen….! May God guide you in this new journey of yours.

    Congrats, Cerezo. Best wishes in your new assignment!
    Still remember how Eguavoen led the SE to a 5-2 spanking of Algeria IN ALGIERS in a 2006 world cup qualifier. To date, that remains the most humiliating defeat the Fennecs have suffered at home. The normally vociferous Algeria fans were shocked into silence.
    The SE played an exciting brand of football under Eguavoen. I believe we would have qualified for the world cup that year if Eguavoen had the team from the beginning. By the time he took over, things were looking really bad. Though we didn’t qualify, everybody could see that Eguavoen had done well. The guy is a good coach.

  • @Pompei….

    Upon the beautiful football he played then with big names in world football like (KANU, OKOCHA, ENYEAMA, OSAZE, UTAKA, MARTINS, ODIAH, ETUHU, OLOFINJANA and the up-coming MIKEL then); He still struggle against TUNISIA that had only “DOS SANTO, JAIDI, TRABELSI” as their hit men….

    Infact the last time i checked, IVORY COAST lead by DIDIER DROGBA & KOLO TOURE then, taught him how football is played in the semi finals…..

    You pple should leave me with all this hype….

    Till tomorrow like this, late STEPHEN KESHI still remains my best INDEGENOUOS COACH despite the blunder in his team selection which the CABALS in NFF force him to do….
    I still respect him,,,, u can’t erase his achievement from the book of record….

    • @UBFE Big names in African Football you mean, with the exception of Kanu and Okocha who were big names in world football and maybe Obafemi Martins and Vincent Enyeama to a certain degree.

      You are however Over hyping Chidi Odiah (who was not a really big name in Italy maybe more so Russia to an extent) and Dickson Etuhu, Seyi Olufinjana and John Utaka they were not really big names in World football. Africa Certainly but lets be honest with ourselves not World Football

      I don’t get your point. Are you saying Tunisia and CIV are teams Eguavoen should have beaten black and blue, no matter what? Traditionally, these 2 countries are always football powerhouses in Africa. And back then, they were a force to be reckoned with. I believe they were ranked higher than us. So you need to manage your expectations better.
      Per Keshi, did you read me throwing shade on him anywhere in my comment? Am I insulting or undermining Keshi by giving well deserved kudos to Eguavoen? If you have a personal issue with Eguavoen, may be he snatched your girlfriend from you, why drag me into it, LOL? There seems to be a huge disconnect between my comment and your response. Perhaps you are just seeking attention today. If you need a hug, ask nicely, and I will send you a virtual one. Stay cool, my good man.
