The executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has ordered the technical committee, to recommend another candidate for the post of Super Eagles coach, after Paul Le Guen turned down the job on Tuesday.

However, the executive committee has approved the appointment of Salisu Yusuf as Super Eagles coach, Bitrus Bewarang as technical director and Nduka Ugbade as Golden Eaglets assistant coach.

“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,” a statement from the NFF executive committee after a meeting on Wednesday, read in part.

“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.”

The statement added: “The Committee further resolved that any candidate that would be so recommended by the Technical and Development Sub –Committee must have accepted to be handed targets and must also be willing to live in Nigeria.

“In addition, such a candidate must agree to undergo other internal evaluation.”
