“We are talking to Oliseh but it is not just him,” Pinnick said, “We are setting up a team of coaches for Nigerian football.

“We want to change a lot of things so later today you will get more information but we are changing a lot of things and we are setting up a team.

 “It might be Oliseh and a foreign assistant coach, it might be something else but we are setting up a team and later today we will know more but it won’t be radically different from what we’ve had but we need to put a lot of things in perspective so we don’t make mistakes,” Pinnick added.
