The president of Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, said the federation will appoint and unveil a new Super Eagles technical adviser next week who would lead the team to Cameroon.

During an interactive session with the press on Wednesday in Lagos, Pinnick disclosed that the Federation has interviewed three Europeans for the job.

Recalled that the last European manager the Super Eagles had was Gernot Rohr, who was sacked on the 12th of December after five years and four months in the dugout before his contract was terminated.

The president revealed that the NFF have scoured the world for coach ready for the challenge immediately and able to command the respect of the players.

In the NFF lookout for a respectable tactician, the president confessed that he consulted with former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and AS Roma’s boss Jose Mourinho.

However, he noted that interim boss Eguavoen could still lead the Super Eagles to the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon next month, and also hinted that the 1994 AFCON winner could retain the job permanently if he leads the team to success once the competition commence.

According to Pinnick: “We know that Eguavoen can do the job expertly, but we also know that he will be more useful controlling the technical department. However, if we cannot get the new coaches to start the work immediately, we will empower them to take the team to Cameroon.”

“And if Eguavoen wins the nation cup, we might have a rethink. In that case, the foreign coach will now become the technical director, while he takes the position of technical adviser.” said Pinnick.
