Enoh also said the NFF has taken their time to do a thorough job make sure the Super Eagles qualify for the World Cup after a poor start.

The Super Eagles it would be recalled drew their first two World Cup qualifiers with Lesotho and Zimbabwe last December.

“The campaign for the next World Cup has started and we didn’t start well, it was a shaky one and therefore there’s a lot of mileage to cover,” Enoh added.

“We didn’t qualify for the last World Cup and can’t afford not to be at the next edition.

“The NFF know what Nigeria lost not being at the last World Cup and are doing everything not to repeat same mistake that will lead to the same disappointment.”

    You people are still speaking grammar over the appointment of a coach for the Super Eagles,while other countries are perfecting strategies. Go and ask Cote d’ivore how they did their own within a twinkle of an eye,without any noise and at the middle of the Nation’s Cup. Very unserious and corrupt people.

    Two weeks is a lot what have they been up to for the past few months? NFF should be watched closely because I’m very sure they’re up to something. The one who’s sharing salary might be the chief mastermind behind this delays because I don’t see any quality coach ready to share salary.

  • Hahahaha. In 2 weeks. That’s 2 or 3 weeks to the June 7 match. Chai! Who do us this thing?? Since January or February o. Just one job!!! Appoint a coach. It has become rocket science.

    Except they’re appointing a coach already familiar with the players and team structure or pick such as an assistant.

    Okay Guys tell me, What is the difference between appointing a coach Today 2 weeks from now or Today?..What will change will we have a game to prepare for the SA and Benin from now until the qualifiers?.. If they are down to 2 contenders sureley what ever these candidates need to do in order to prepare them until they get a view of the players in person i.e. video’s of games plyers in mind etc. they can do now and have an idea of the personel already I mean most of our players are playing in leagues that are covered worldwide. so whats the big deal?

    The NFF needs to do the right thing and 2 weeks is not bad. however I feel this Guardiola ex coach is not the answer screams another Peseiro all over him. If you ask me between the two if it is him or Amuneke I will stick my head out for Amuneke. if we will not get a coach in the ilk of Herve Reynard we may aswell just do what NFF is good at doing lately and settle for what we can get

    NFF una well done ooo. CHAI!

    1 week or 2 weeks. The nff should get it right and hire the most qualified coach for the team. If the names of tge shortlisted candidates being thrown around are correct, then the former coach of Cameroon Concenciao is the best option.
    Surprised to see the name of a serial failure being pushed around by people with ulterior motives. A former player that is known for his divisive and technical bereft decision who has failed in all senior team engagements including getting demoted to youth teams. Amunike should first develop himself with Heartland FC, win the league like Finidi before being considered for any national team job. The same clueless coach that could not qualify for the U-20’s despite the arrays of stars in his team.
    Concenciao is the most qualified of the shortlisted three coaches.
