Pinnick: NFF Will Name Foreign Coach Next Week



President of Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has revealed that the identity of the new coach of Super Eagles will be made known in about 10 days’ time.

Pinnick said that they have almost completed the signing of the foreign coach but refused to  disclose his name and country until all the documentations are done.

“We have identified and held talks with the coach who will guide the Super Eagles through the World Cup qualifiers and the World Cup proper in Russia. The only reason we are holding back the announcement is just to ensure that everything is in place before we unveil him to Nigerians,” Pinnick said.

“Money to pay the new coach was a problem but that has been solved because we now have a sponsor who will pick the bills of the coach. We are ready to go and within the next 10 days, we shall tell you all  who is our next coach.”

Pinnick restated the commitment of the NFF to ensure that the Super Eagles qualify for the World Cup in Russia, adding that the other teams in Nigeria’s group are also afraid of the Super Eagles.

“We respect all the teams in our group but we are not afraid of them. They should be afraid of us because we are also a force to reckon with on the continent. At the draw in Cairo, the other teams’ representative were jittery and fear was written over them,” Pinnick quipped.

Nigeria are drawn in the same group with Africa’s top ranked team, Algeria, Cameroun and Zambia.
