Sanusi continued: “We expect the consultants to do a thorough job and recruit the best coaches among those who applied. I can assure Nigerians that the NFF will employ the best coaches for our national teams soon.”
Over 100 coaches were reported to have applied to the NFF, for the jobs of handling the five national men and women teams. Some of the coaches that applied included Christopher Danjuma, Paul Aigbogun, Edwin Okon, Manu Garba, Kennedy Boboye, Abdu Maikaba, Fidelis Ilechukwu, Bala Nikyu and Agan Edat, to mention a few.
Sanusi was silent on the Super Eagles job, ostensibly because of more time could take for the NFF to negotiate and agree a contract extension with Gernot Rohr who is already at the tail end of his three year contract, or otherwise hire a new coach.
