The Nigeria Football Federation says coaches for all the national teams except the Super Eagles will be named in February.

The General Secretary of the NFF, Mohammed Sanusi, in a chat with journalists said the federation has saddled consultants with the responsibility of selecting coaches for the other men and women’s national teams.

“The consultants saddled with the responsibility of recruiting and recommending are expected to turn in the chosen coaches for the Super Falcons, U-23 Eagles, Flying Eagles, Falconets, Flamingos, Golden Eaglets and Future Eagles for the NFF executive to approve and announce the appointments,” Sanusi said.

“We know we have some qualifying matches starting with the U-17 women’s team early March, and we shall hopefully announce a list of successful coaches for the approval of the Executive Committee of the NFF.

“The consultants are working round the clock, and hopefully, the list of those recruited should be out in February.

“We expect the consultants to do a thorough job and recruit the best coaches among those who applied. I can assure Nigerians that the NFF will employ the best coaches for our national teams soon.”

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr whose contract with the NFF expired in June, but he is expected to resume negotiations for a new contract in February.
