The Nigeria U23 coach Samson Siasia and ex-Super Eagles coach Shuaibu Amodu have been lined up as possible replacements for Sunday Oliseh. This comes hours after the ex-midfielder announced his resignation as coach of the Super Eagles on Twitter.
A committee led by the Rivers state FA chairman Chris Green will meet today, February 26, and one of their deliberations will be to recommend temporary successors to Oliseh, Africanfootball.com reports. While Amodu, who is currently the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) technical director, has previously managed the Eagles, guiding Nigeria to the 2002 and 2014 World Cups, Siasia can only boast of a short stint as Eagles coach between 2010 and 2011.
He was fired after he failed to qualify for the 2012 AFCON in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. Oliseh was unveiled in Abuja by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) as the new head coach of the Super Eagles in July 2015. According to Amaju Pinnick, the president of the NFF, Oliseh was selected because of his high intellectual capacity in coaching and recommendations by FIFA.
