The executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation will meet today in Abuja to decide on their next line of action after their attempt to hire Paul Le Guen as the new Nigeria coach ended in an embarrassing episode.
Frenchman Le Guen yesterday turned down the chance to become the next Super Eagles coach after the NFF had announced him without having a proper agreement in place.
Chairman of the NFF technical committee Chris Green confirmed they will meet to ‘chart a way forward’.
“We will meet today to take a decision and to chart a way forward,” he said.
The Glass House had named the former PSG coach as the substantive replacement to Sunday Oliseh on Monday, when they were yet to discuss terms with the Frenchman in actual fact.
It now remains to be seen what decision will be taken at today’s meeting, but there are feelers that interim coach Salisu Yusuf might be given the chance to lead the team full time if there are no other viable options.
The development with Le Guen is the latest in a series of seeming ineptitude displayed by the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF, having already failed to qualify the country to the last two Africa Cup of Nations championships.
