NFF Assures Siasia: No Foreign Coach For Now

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:

The Nigeria Football Federation has assured Super Eagles interim coach, Samson Siasia,  that there is no plan, for now,  to hire a foreign coach to take over the senior national team job from him, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.


General Secretary of the NFF, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, who disclosed this on Monday stated that Siasia was saddled with the responsibility of beating Egypt to the AFCON ticket, adding that the federation has absolute trust in the former Nigeria international striker to successfully  lead the Super Eagles to Gabon. 

"We have absolute trust in Siasia  to deliver, and we are giving him all the support to ensure that we achieved our target which to qualify for AFCON. We are not thinking of replacing him for now and we are not discussing with any coach as at this moment. Siasia was with me this morning and I assured him that his job is safe and not threatened," Sanusi  said.

"Honestly, we don't know where this story is coming from because we are not talking with any foreign coach. We don't want anything that will distract the team from the task of beating Egypt home and away. We have confidence in Siasia, that is why we saddled him with the responsibility of heading the coaching crew after Sunday Oliseh resigned .

" What we want from Nigerians is support and prayers so that the Super Eagles qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations. Siasia is doing well so far and we trust him to deliver," Sanusi stated.

  • yes will dont need white caoch for now.

  • I do not trust the NFF one bit. Telling us that no f.coach for now is not the matter. Tell us that Nigeria will not be needing a foreign coach for now and forever as we will be using the local coaches now and forever. Corruption dey smell for that NFF. Oliseh should prepare himself well so that it will be a no hold back discussion with the House of Rep with so many things revealed so that other past sacked coaches like Keshi will be called to testify too. At the end it will help to revamp the NFF.
