Erstwhile Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Jo Bonfrere believes only an expatriate coach can help improve the fortune of the team, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The Dutchman, in an exclusive chat with Completesportsnigeria.com expressed concern over unimpressive showing of the three-time African Champions in recent international outings.
The former South Korea gaffer also backed the Nigeria Football Federation over the sacking of Stephen Keshi, stating that the performance of the team under his tutelage has nosedived since they won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
“I think the NFF need to hire a foreign coach to take charge of the Super Eagles,” Bonfrere told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“The Super Eagles have failed to make much impact since they won the African Cup of Nations in 2013 and it has to do with the inability of the coaches to take the team to new heights.
“Personally, I don’t think Stephen Keshi have what it takes to take the team beyond where they are now.
“So the decision made by the NFF to sack him was the right one.
“The next task before them now is to carefully look for a capable foreign coach that can help improve the performance of the team.”
