The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has shortlisted three coaches for the Super Eagles' coaching job.

A statement by the NFF on Friday in Abuja listed the three coaches to include Super Eagles’ caretaker coach Salisu Yusuf, Ethiopia coach Tom Saintfiet, and Frenchman Paul Le Guen, who once coached Cameroon.

“On Friday at the Glass House, the NFF Technical and Development Committee pored over more than 20 applications before cutting the list to three. “Among those who showed interest in coaching the Super Eagles are Giovanni Solinas, Saintfiet, Hey Antoine, Mark Wotte, Yusuf, Ernesto Paulo Calvinho, Dorian Marin, and Le Guen.

“Others are Miodrag Jesic, Perry Hansen, Ove Pedersen, Adebayo Lateef Kola, Sylvanus Okpala and Peter Ijeh. “The rest are Vladimir Petrovic-Pizon, Lodewijk de Kruif, Kenichi Yatsuhashi, Bjorn Frank Peters and Ricki Herbert,’’ the statement disclosed.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Saintfiet, a 43-year-old Belgian, has coached the national teams of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Yemen, Malawi and Togo.

Chairman of NFF’s Technical and Development Committee, Chris Green, said the shortlist was on the basis of a set of criteria. “We set a criteria with which we evaluated the nearly two dozen applications and then agreed on the three persons that we shortlisted. “The Committee will now meet on July 18 to interview the shortlisted candidates and immediately name the next Super Eagles’ Head Coach,” he said.
