Austrian Coach Demands Eagles Job

–Didi Constantini wants to succeed Keshi

Even as Super Eagles head coach, Stephen keshi’s future with the Nigeria national is yet to be decided in the aftermath of Nigeria’s Round of 16 ouster in the concluded FIFA World Cup in Brazil, former Austria manager,Dietmar ‘Didi’ Constantini has expressed interest in taking up Super Eagles coaching job as successor to the Big Boss.

59-year-old Constantini stepped down as Austria senior national team manager September 13, 2011 after two years in the saddle.

With 198 caps for his country, Didi Constantini has had several spells with Austrian national teams, including U-18 and U-21s as well as senior national team assistant role in 2001 having equally handled Al-Ittihad of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia among several other Austrian clubs.

“Nigeria has a lot of potentials in the game and given the opportunity I’ll be ready to help take the game to the next level in Nigeria”, he said Wednesday from his base.

Although Keshi has been linked with several job offers including that of South Africa’s Bafana Bafana which his fate stands to be decided by SAFA come July 26, the Big Boss is yet to make his decision on the Nigerian hot-seat job known after leading the team to Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup and having earlier lifted the 2013 AFCON in South Africa.

Complete Sports was informed by Constantini’s Nigeria-go-between that the Austian will add more value to the Super Eagles even as the Nigerian federation is yet to make a pronouncement on Keshi’s fate.

    We don’t need foreign coach to be given the super eagles job, NFF should employ one of Nigerian coaches to handle this job. We can give the job to Sunday Oliseh, he is one of former super eagle players and he has the experience to coach the super eagles. The foreign coaches will just come and spend our money without result .Apparently, We have some foreign coaches that worked in this country without result except clement westerhof and Bon joe .

    That`s very correct my fellow Nigerian,the white fox are more interested in the hot cake.Any coach interested in Nigerian job should reside there in Nigeria and always introducing fresh legs.Foreign coach is not what Super Eagles needs though an efficient FA,minimum corruption,good working environment(well furnished football oriented village).If Keshi could win the most prestigous football tournament in Africa in 2 and half years incharge he could do better if supported.2018 world cup plans could take effect now!!!!
