Nigeria Football Federation considering hiring a foreign coach to lead the Super Eagles

As the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Nigeria and Egypt draws closer, a dark cloud still hangs over the Super Eagles.

Since 2015, futile efforts for continental trophies have seen Nigeria change management three times, raising questions over the ability of local coaches to steer the team to championship wins.

Samson Siasia has come back to head a group of coaches trying to get the team to the 2017 AFCON finals.

Following the Nigeria Football Federation’s sacking of controversial coach Stephen Keshi following a turbulent spell in charge of the Super Eagles in July last year, his replacement, Sunday Oliseh, resigned just seven months after assuming office.

Now NFF president has hinted that Nigeria could stop hiring local coaches and opt for a foreign tactician.
