Paul Le Guen- Frenchman rejects Super Eagles job



Frenchman coach, Paul Le Guen has rejected the chance to be the coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Le Guen was on Monday, July, 19 announced as the Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

The coach has however denied reaching any agreement with the NFF before they made the announcement.
Respected French journalist, Herve Penot first broke the news on Twitter, writing; ”Paul le Guen will not go to Nigeria. Conditions not met to be coach. Nothing to do with the selection today.”

Le Guen told the French journalist that he had a chat with president of the NFF, Amaju Pinnick and told him he wasn't interested in the job.


Pinnick was said to have spoken to friends of the coach in a bid to convince him and went ahead with announcement.
Le Guen, 52, said he was shocked when he was named as the Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The coach said he had no idea that he was being considered because it was never agreed.
Since the resignation of Sunday Oliseh in February, 2016, NFF made it clear that they were only looking for only foreign coaches for the Super Eagles.
