Frenchman Paul Le Guen Rejects New Super Eagles Coach Job
Newly-appointed Super Eagles coach, Paul Le Guen, has rejected the offer by the Nigeria Football Federation, according to reports.
The Technical and Development Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation on Monday, named Frenchman Paul Le Guen, 52, as the new Technical Adviser of the Senior National Team, Super Eagles, adding that he will be assisted by Salisu Yusuf, who takes the role of Chief Coach, and that the appointments are subject to agreement of contract terms with the NFF Executive Committee.
According to a Tweet by Herve Penot, a reporter at international sports magazine, L’ Euipe, Paul Le Guen has reportedly rejected the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) offer to lead the Super Eagles as Technical Adviser.
The 52-year-old reportedly rejected the offer because the Glass House failed to meet his terms and condition.
“Paul Le Guen rejects Nigeria. Frenchman insists the country’s FA (NFF) yet to meet terms & conditions to be coach,” Penot tweeted via his handle @hpenot_lequipe.
