By Adeboye Amosu: Flying Eagles head coach Paul Aigbogun insists combining his role with that of handling seven-time Nigeria Professional Football League champions Enyimba will not deter him from building a strong squad capable of conquering Africa and the world, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Aigbogun who was recently named head coach of the Nigeria U-20 side no doubt has a tough task ahead of him going by the two teams’ busy schedules.
Enyimba are competing for three trophies this season, the NPFL, CAF Confederation Cup and Aiteo Federation Cup.
The Flying Eagles will also be busy as they bid to qualify for 2019 African U-20 Nations Cup billed for Niger.
But the former Warri Wolves handler is adamant he has the ability to handle the two teams and become successful.
“I know some people will ask questions about combining my job at Enyimba with that of the national team. It is a tough task but it’s something I can do,” Aigbogun told CSN.
“In a situation like this, it is always important to have capable assistants who can take charge of the team while you are away which I already have in Enyimba.
“Then, it is important to have a laid down plan which makes things easy for you. For now, my mind is on our (Enyimba) CAF Confederation Cup game against Energie FC of Benin Republic next Wednesday.
“When it is time to work with the Flying Eagles, I will concentrate on that fully and we will build a strong squad capable of doing the nation proud.”
