There are strong indications that the Nigerian government will advertise the position of the job of Super Eagles on both the local and international platforms in a bid to get the best tactician for the position if the renewal talks with the incumbent, Gernot Rohr ends in a deadlock.
The exercise to produce Rohr’s replacement if discussions with his employers, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) falls through, will be supervised by one of the renowned international firms Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) to ensure transparency.
Not much was divulged on when the exercise will commence as the source was being careful not to jeopardise ongoing discussions between the tactician and his employers.
Except for the fact that other national teams’ coaches will also follow the same process with word rife that the Super Eagles manager will include coaching of the country’s Olympic Games side to his portfolio.
The German, who took over the Super Eagles job in 2016, has a contract running until June 2022.
Nigeria will kick off its 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying campaign at home against Benin in November.
The Nigerians are in Group L which also includes Lesotho and Sierra Leone.
