I Won’t Apply For Eagles’ Job —Eguavoen



Interim coach of the Super Eagles,  Augustine Eguavoen has stated in clear terms that he  won’t apply for the vacant job of the senior national team.


Eguavoen, who returned as caretaker coach of the team after Sweden-born Lars Lagerback  failed to return to the country at the end of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, said  though he sees himself as the right man for the job, he won’t apply for it.

The board of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, had recently declared the post vacant.

The Aminu Maigari-led board failed to appoint Samson Siasia for the job  after the NFF  elections. The NFF officials were about to invite applications from interested coaches when  their elections were cancelled by the Lagos High Court. Eguavoen, while speaking on Brila  F..M. early today, said as an interim coach of the Eagles, he saw no  reason to apply for  the job.

“As the interim coach, I deserved the job without applying and I will never apply,” he said.

The former Enyimba of Aba soccer tactician noted that the leadership of the NFF is very much  aware of his capability to tinker the team but they are only trying to play games.

Meanwhile, Nigeria crashed to the 34th position in the latest monthly world rankings  released by FIFA yesterday.
