Nigeria will announce a permanent coach in two weeks, according to a top official of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
This is coming on the heels of the draw for the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup and the NFF have now said a coach will be announced in two weeks now that they know the teams they must face to get to the next World Cup.
“The target (to hire a coach) of the technical committee and the NFF is two weeks so we can get down to preparations,” Shehu Dikko, second vice-president of the NFF said.
“It is better now that we know the draws and the countries we will play, so we can decide the kind of coach we need to get the right results,” Dikko added.
The three-time African champions have been without a substantive coach since February when Sunday Oliseh quit the post, and they have now had four coaches in the last one year alone.
The draw for the Russia 2018 World Cup sees Nigeria in Group B along with Algeria, Cameroon and Zambia and failure to qualify will make it three major tournaments in a row that the country has now failed to make.
