A new coach could lead Nigeria to the AFCON, the president of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) Amuja Pinnick has revealed. A suicidal decision, according to the local press, which also criticizes the mismanagement of the NFF president.
With only two weeks to go before the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, Nigeria could yet have a new coach. At least that's what the president of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), Amuja Pinnick, has announced. A suicidal decision, according to the local press. "We expected Eguavoen to lead the team to Cameroon. He knows most of the players because he was the NFF technical advisor before Rohr was sacked. But surprisingly, with only two weeks to go before the start of the Africa Cup of Nations, Pinnick reveals that a foreign manager will be appointed next week; this is an act of irresponsibility on the part of the NFF," the Nigerian website Soccernet reported.
For the Nigerian site, the "incompetence" of the president of the federation Amaju Pinnick is the main cause of the cacophony at the head of the Super Eagles. "Since he was elected in 2014, Pinnick has taken many wrong decisions that have hurt the development of Nigerian football. It is time he stopped putting himself at the center of attention and do what is best for the team."
The Nigerian press is still waiting for the Super Eagles' list for the Africa Cup of Nations. Nigeria will face Egypt in Pool D before taking on Sudan and Guinea-Bissau.
