NFF set to replace Ike Shorunmu

09 July 2015, 10:44

Abuja - As the changes in the coaching set up of the Super Eagles continues, News24 has gathered that the next victim of the sweeping change being effected by the Amaju Pinnick-led Nigeria Football Federation could be goalkeeper trainer, Ike Shorunmu.

Pinnick had confirmed in a radio interview on Wednesday they will make more changes to the Super Eagles technical crew following the sacking of Stephen Keshi, as he said they are trying to raise a ‘coaching team’ for the Super Eagles.

Shorunmu, a former Super Eagles goalkeeper, has been the Eagles’ goalkeeper trainer since 2010, when Samson Siasia was appointed the Super Eagles coach and he was retained when Stephen Keshi took over.

But News24 understands that the NFF is disposed to hiring a foreign goalkeeper trainer to replace Shorunmu, even though it is understood that incoming Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh would prefer Alloy Agu.

Agu is presently the goalkeeper trainer of Nigeria’s men’s U23 team, and is a former Super Eagles goalkeeper.

He has also previously worked as the Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer, under German coach, Berti Vogts between 2007 and 2008 and Amodu Shuaibu between 2008 and 2010.

Oliseh’s appointment is expected to be formally announced on Friday.
