Ex-Everton, Ajax, Barcelona, Lille stars consider coaching Nigeria's Super Eagles

Posted : 04 March 2024

The former General Manager of Bananawa FC, Mr. Harry Yachi, has recommended a coaching lineup for Nigeria's Super Eagles, proposing the appointment of Daniel Amokachi, George Finidi, Emmanuel Amunike, and Vincent Enyeama. This proposal comes in the wake of the departure of Jose Peseiro as the head coach, whose contract expired on March 1. Augustine Eguavoen has assumed the role of interim boss, and there is a concerted effort to secure a substantive head coach before the next round of World Cup qualifiers begins in June.

Following Peseiro's less-than-convincing tenure and considering the perennial financial constraints faced by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), there is a growing sentiment for the appointment of an indigenous coach to lead the Super Eagles. Notably, George Finidi, the former Ajax winger currently managing Enyimba International, is among the names being considered for the position.

In addition to Finidi, other options being discussed for the coaching role include ex-Everton forward Daniel Amokachi, former Lille goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama, and one-time Barcelona winger Emmanuel Amunike. Harry Yachi, the former Bananawa FC boss, has put forth the suggestion that all four former Super Eagles stars should be engaged, with Amokachi taking the lead. Yachi emphasizes Amokachi's prior experience, highlighting his involvement when Nigeria won the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in 2013.

Harry Yachi believes that if these proposed names agree to work together, they can form a formidable coaching squad that would contribute to the long-term success of the Super Eagles. Amunike, with coaching achievements such as guiding the Golden Eaglets to victory in the 2015 FIFA U17 World Cup and helping Tanzania qualify for the 2019 AFCON, brings valuable experience to the table. Amokachi, despite a hiatus in coaching, served as an assistant coach when Nigeria won the 2013 AFCON in South Africa, showcasing his past contributions to the national team's success.
