Only competent people should coach Eagles — Okpodu

Former Nigeria international Sam Okpodu insists there can be no place for sentiment when it comes to naming the new head coach of the Super Eagles.

The Nigerian Football Federation are currently holding discussions regarding a way forward for the national team, who have failed to hit any sort of high note over the last 12 months while under the guidance of Stephen Keshi.

The tactician is now expected to again be relieved of his duties, a fate which befell him after the Eagles’ failed 2014 World Cup campaign, although he was reinstated for their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign, and the team again fell short in that regard.

And, with a tactician expected to be named shortly, Okpodu has called on the NFF to do away with any sort of pleasantries and make a decision which will best serve Nigerian football.
