I can assist Eguavoen, Bosso

Former Nigeria Under-20 coach, Ladan Bosso, has said he could assist Eagles stand-in coach, Austin Eguavoen in the country’s Olympic team.

Eguavoen has already been slated to take charge of the country’s Under-23 team and there are speculations that Bosso will be drafted to assist him.

“Well I have not received any information as regards being appointed as an assistant coach to Eguavoen for the U-23 national team job.

But if it eventually happens, then there won’t be a problem at all. I will recall that we have worked together with the U-17s,” Niger Tornadoes coach Bosso disclosed.

“There is no body I cannot work with as an assistant and there is nobody that I cannot head in as much as the roles are clearly spelt out in the contracts.”

Bosso qualified Nigeria for the 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup after the Flying Eagles placed third at the African Youth Championship in Rwanda.

The team’s tentative showing in Rwanda was roundly condemned by the press and public and Bosso was subsequently replaced by Samson Siasia in time for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Egypt.
