Chief Patrick Ekeji, the Director-General of the National Sports Commission has disclosed that Englishman, Glenn Hoddle was the choice of the interview panel before the arrival of Lars Lagerback who was chosen as the Eaglesâ€™ new Technical Adviser penultimate Friday.
Explaining why Lagerback suddenly became the favourite, Chief Ekeji said the Swede showed that he was organised.
â€œI was in the process of selecting Lagerback and it was transparent. Before he appeared before us for the interview, Glenn Hoddle was the choice, but when he appeared, he showed he is very organised and this is what we want him to impact on our players.
And I also pray that all these factors work for him and the players at the World Cup in South Africa and by extension the Nigeria Football Federation. Weâ€™ll all collectively support Lagerback and the NFFâ€, Chief Patrick Ekeji said.
