Nigerian Football Federation, NFF is set to name the new manager for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
According to Vanguard, NFF hopes to appoint a foreign coach as the new manager of the Super Eagles.
Recall, former Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr was given the axe on the 10th of December.
The vacant post will therefore be occupied by one recommended to NFF by former Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho.
However, the name of the new coach said to be Mourinho’s choice is yet to be revealed.
The new coach could be appointed before the Africa Cup of Nations kicks off in January.
A source revealed: “The NFF boss went as far as meeting with many respected names including the former Chelsea coach, Jose Mourinho to assist him in getting a good coach for Nigeria.”
“The speed and precision with which the NFF applied in securing a new coach could not have been possible without the role played by the ‘Special One’ . ”
