Jose Mourinho To Visit Nigeria With Coach He Recommended For Super Eagles Job



Jose Mourinho has reportedly recommended a new tactician to become the next coach for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

This was made known by the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, when he disclosed that he would be searching for a new coach to replace Gernot Rohr.

A source also revealed that a new coach has already been identified, and that Pinnick went as far as reaching out to the ‘Special One’

According to the source, “The NFF boss went as far as meeting with many respected names including the former Chelsea coach, Jose Mourinho to assist him in getting a good coach for Nigeria.

“The speed and precision with which the NFF applied in securing a new coach could not have been possible without the role played by the ‘Special One’.

“Qualification to the 2022 World Cup is top priority for NFF president Amaju Pinnick.”

Recall that Gernot Rohr was officially relieved of his duties as the Super Eagles coach and former international Augustine Eguavoen was appointed to take up the position temporarily.

Eguavoen has been tasked to lead the team to the Africa Cup of Nations tournament billed to kick off in Cameroon on January 9.
