Don’t Bring Any Idiot As Super Eagles Coach – Allen Onyema Tells NFF 


THE Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Airpeace, Chief Allen Onyema, has kicked against the Nigeria Football Federation,(NFF)  hiring another foreign coach to take charge of the national team.

The Super Eagles are without a handler after Jose Peseiro’s contract ran out in February.

Former international, Finidi George, has been put in interim charge of the team for the friendly matches this international break against Ghana and Mali.

Onyema, who is an ardent supporter of the Super Eagles, has now warned the NFF not to hire a foreign coach over a local candidate.

He told City People Online: “I don’t see the reason why we cannot have a look into the country and get somebody out there that will take on the Super Eagles. As far as I am concerned, Eguavoen succeeded to some level.

A lot of them succeeded. The truth is that when a foreign coach bows out from the group stage, nobody talks; when a Nigerian coach bows out from the quarterfinals or semifinals, oh if it had been a foreign coach, we would have won the cup.

“Nobody gives Nigerian coaches a chance. Nigerians should rise against any NFF that goes again to get any idiot as a foreign coach.”
