Again, Dalung stops NFF from hiring foreign coach for Super Eagles

Sports Minister Solomon Dalung has again told the Nigeria Football Federation not to appoint a foreign coach for the Super Eagles.

Dalung had in April frowned at the idea of hiring a foreign coach.

According to Independent report, Dalung explained that it was irrational for Nigeria to hire a foreign coach when the country was still indebted to some local coaches, some of whom were late.

“The selection of coaches usually is handled by our technical team; we are a supervising ministry so we have little to do with the process but we have a role in guiding what is best for Nigeria.

“I have always maintained that we even cannot pay indigenous coaches; we still owe them some months of salaries and some of them have even died without those salaries.

“Do we still go and look for a foreign coach and will he (the foreign coach) be able to tolerate us without salaries for some time; more so that we may also be paying him in hard currency.

“So it’s a fundamental contradiction to swallow easily.

There are reports on Wednesday that the NFF are in the process of interviewing Frenchman Paul Le Guen, and Harry Redknapp among others.
