Aghahowa, Chukwu Lament Delay In Appointment Of New Super Eagles Coach Ahead 2023 AFCON Qualifiers (Updated: 5 months ago)


Ex-Nigeria international Julius Aghahowa and former Eagles coach, Christian Chukwu, have lamented the delay in the appointment of a new technical adviser for the Super Eagles.

Interim coach Austin Eguavoen and his technical crew were relieved of their duties after Nigeria failed to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup last month.

The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) resolved to settle for a foreign a foreign manager and its technical committee has recommended four coaches to the federation for weeks now.

Qualifiers for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is scheduled to commence next month, with the Eagles drawn in Group A alongside Sierra Leone, Guinea-Bissau and Mauritius/ Sao Tome and Principe.

Speaking in an interview with Complete Sports on Wednesday, Aghahowa said Nigerians were worried by the silence of the NFF on the appointment of a new coach.

Jose Paseiro, Enersto Valverde, Phillip Cocu and Laurent Blanc have been shortlisted for the vacant position.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk player stated that the delay may also affect the preparation of the national team for the qualifiers.

“It is the opinion of everyone, we are all looking forward to the early preparation for the tournament ( 2023 AFCON qualifiers). So if we do not get ready on time, if we don’t get somebody to handle the team in time, it can also affect the team during the preparation. So the earlier the better,” he stated.

Also, former Super Eagles coach Christian Chukwu pointed out that by now, the national team should have a new coach.

“By now, we should have a coach because the competition is coming nearer; it is so near now. I don’t know what the problem is, but the people running our football should know what is happening. They have named other coaches in other teams except the Super Eagles, I don’t know what is delaying. That is how we will not qualify for the AFCON again,” he told Brila FM in an interview.
