NFF issues 7-day ultimatum for Paul Le Guen’s replacement

21 July 2016, 11:14Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Nigeria Football Federation has handed a 7-day ultimatum to the technical committee to shop for another technical adviser for the Super Eagles after Paul Le Guen rejected the job.

According to News24 report, Le Guen rejected the offer because he was not comfortable with the conditions, after the NFF had announced him the new technical adviser of the Super Eagles.

Rising from an executive committee meeting, the NFF says the candidate to be recommended must be ready to live in Nigeria and be given a target.

“Executive Committee instructed the Technical and Development Sub –Committee to, within the next seven (7) days, recommend a candidate for the post of Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles.

“It noted that the refusal of Mr. Paul Le Guen, earlier recommended by the Sub –Committee, to accept to be given targets as well as unwillingness to live in Nigeria, made his candidature unacceptable to the Board.

“Committee also disapproved of Mr. Le Guen’s desire to come to the job with two assistants, which would make Nigerian coaches redundant. The Committee noted that it was the desire to show transparency that made the Technical and Development Sub –Committee to make public its recommendation in the first place.

News24 reported that the NFF insisted that a technical adviser for the Super Eagles must be handed a target.
