ERSTWHILE Eagles players, Jonathan Akpoborie has cast the first stone on Egyptian coach of the moment, Hassan Shehata describing him as a middle class coach. â€œThat he won the Nations Cup with Egypt does not put him in the class of world-class coaches.
And it does not mean that he will succeed with the Eaglesâ€, Akpoborie said on a local radio station. â€œHiddink and Van Gaal are quality coaches but I am afraid if they will come over to Nigeria knowing that they have existing contracts.
The NFF should be frank on whether they have made contacts with the coaches and appoint one as time is running out before the World Cup kicks offâ€, Akpoborie who threw his weight behind the sacking of Amodu added.
