Former Super Eagles Coach, Samson Siasia is in the run for a
new national team coaching job in East Africa.
The Rwanda Football Federation (Ferwafa) has announced an
eight-man shortlist for the Amavubi coaching job that went vacant last August
after the Northern Irishman Johnny McKinstry was fired.
From a list of over 50 coaches, Siasia, who led the Dream
Team to bronze at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil, has been named among
the favourable eight candidates to take over the Amavubi.
Siasia is the only African still in the run and he has the
likes of Belgian coach Georges Leekens, who resigned from his role in charge of
Algeria last month, former Burkina Faso and Jordan coach Paul Put all to
contend with for the top job in Rwanda.
Ferwafa president Vincent Degaule Nzamwita said: “We want to
select a coach who will take us to the next level."
The newly appointed coach will begin with preparing the
Amavubi for the Chan 2018 qualifiers that commence in July.
