Minister for Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh, has issued a call for the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to employ a coach who has pedigree and a track record of success to lead the Super Eagles. Emphasizing the importance of having a coach with a reputable history in African football, Senator Enoh highlighted the need for a coach who understands the unique dynamics of the continent’s football landscape.

In a statement, Senator Enoh said “the Super Eagles needs a coach with pedigree and a track record of achievements. We need someone who can propel us towards winning the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and ensure our qualification for the 2026 World Cup.”

The Minister underscored the urgency and significance of this appointment, stressing that the chosen coach must not only bring tactical expertise but also possess a deep understanding of African football and its challenges. “The terrain of African football requires a specific type of knowledge and experience. We need a coach who has proven their capability in this environment and can bring out the best in our players,” he added.

The minister also mentioned the tremendous support the NFF has received from President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration, reinforcing the government’s commitment to elevating Nigerian football on the global stage. “Our goal is clear – we want the Super Eagles and other national teams to excel and bring glory to our nation. The right coach will be instrumental in achieving this,” he stated.

The Minister concluded by urging the NFF to expedite the selection process and ensure that the new coach is in place well ahead of the upcoming games. “Time is of the essence. We must act swiftly to prepare adequately for the 2025 AFCON and the World Cup qualifiers. The future of Nigerian football depends on the decisions we make today,” he emphasized.
