World Cup Disappointments: NFF Goes Shopping for Foreign Coaches



Following the poor showing by the junior national team, the Flying Eagles, and the Super Falcons, at both the U-20, and Women World Cups respectively, there are indications the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) is out shopping for foreign coaches to head the teams.

According to Sportinglife, the three tacticians are expected to come with their backroom staff but they would work with those Nigerians sent to England for courses on technical study.

The paper reported that the NFF has contracted agents to help develop templates for the three teams as well as train potential coaches.  The said agents constitute some of the best hands that do design the technical framework for the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA).

Top officials of the NFF suggest that the three coaches could be in Nigeria next month for discussions with the federation culminating in their commencing work latest in July.

It was also gathered that those at the helm of affairs at the Glass House are outsourcing the payment of the three foreign coaches through the Public Private Partnership (PPP) with words rife that the federation chiefs are keeping the names of their partners under wraps until all the details are sealed with all those involved.
