Strong indications have emerged that the Nigeria Football Federation, may have agreed to hire former Nigeria international, Sunday Oliseh,as Super Eagles new coach.
It was gathered that Oliseh was given a copy of Keshi’s contract to review, after which he removed some of the clauses and added things he would want the federation to include in the new deal when it is sealed.
Chairman of the NFF Technical and Development Committee, Felix Anyansi-Agwu, said: “An offer has been made, and there is understanding, but we have to work out the final details of the agreement in a few days. Of course, the Executive Board has to give approval for his appointment based on the final terms to be agreed.”
“We are also looking at how he will periodically organise clinics and seminars for coaches of Clubs in the Nigeria Professional Football League, probably once in a month, so as to strengthen the playing philosophy across board. A robust youth development programme, elite player development strategy and performance programmes to drive higher standards, among other core sustainable development programmes, are also part of the proposal,” Anyansi-Agwu added.
Oliseh would work with two coaches from Eastern Europe and Current stand-in Coach Salisu Yusuf will also be in the new team.
