NFF Gun For Gullit! To replace Keshi As New Eagles Boss

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have initiated moves to sound out former Dutch coach Ruud Gullit as the country’s new coach, reports AfricanFootball.com.

The NFF have made it clear Shuaibu Amodu will only be in charge of the Super Eagles for two AFCON qualifiers against Congo and South Africa next month after which the country will hire a foreign coach.

The NFF,according to the website have moved quickly in the plan to engage a top foreign coach by getting across some contacts to sound out Gullit for the top coaching post.

“The Nigeria contacts in Europe are first to sound out Gullit whether he will be open to handle the Super Eagles and if he would be available,” a top source told the website.

“It will be only after this contact that other considerations like the duration of the contract and the personal terms of Gullit would be tabled.”

The 52-year-old Gullit last coached Russian club Terek Grozny in 2011. He has most recently worked as a TV pundit for SuperSport and BBC.

He has coached English Premier League clubs Chelsea and Newcastle United as well as Dutch side Feyenoord and Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS.

He led Chelsea to win the FA Cup in 1997 and is best remembered for his “Sexy Football”.

    So Guilit have won the Euros, UEFA champions league as a coach and NFF didn’t tell us all this while! But if he hasn’t won any of these titles, then he is not better than Keshi, as bad as he is.
    You guys had better give us a coach with better credentials. Coaching Chelsea FC years ago is not a criteria to be flung in our faces.
    If these coaches are good, they should be coaching their national teams or major clubs in europe.

    If we can bear the pain of taking the spec out of our eyes, we will see that any coach with the sound technical knowhow like Gullit, if blessed with the ocean of Nigerian players scattered all over the globe; that coach will do wonders.

    The issue was not about our coach, because we had a coach. What we need now, is a coach that is technically sound. We cannot be cutting down trees with machete when others have started utilizing industrial saw. Lets understand that the new NFF President is now applying rocket science to our football, and that my friend is a welcome relief.
