Mastoroudes Tasks NFF On Choice Of Coach

Nigeria Football Federation

One-time member of tech
nical committee of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), John Mastoroudes, has tasked the NFF to make the right choice as regards a foreign coach for the country.
Mastoroudes, who became a household name in the 80s when the star-studded Leventis United bestrode the Nigerian domestic football scene, said the NFF must hire a world-class coach, who the players will respect.
“The NFF hiring a foreign coach depends on what the blueprint is and what we want to achieve going forward,” he said.
“If you ask me, we have good local coaches in Nigeria and there are equally good foreign coaches in Europe.”
Nigeria is shopping for a new coach after Sunday Oliseh walked out on the team in February over several breaches to his contract.
The immediate task of the new Eagles coach is the qualifying campaign for the 2018 World Cup in Russia beginning on October 3 with a dicey game away in Zambia.
