Saintfiet, 43, is one of 3 shortlisted coaches for the Super Eagles jobs, but news of an offer from the Bangladesh Football Federation for the job of the Bengal Tigers sparked concerns in the Nigerian football circles that the former Qatar and Zimbabwe Boss may be looking elsewhere.

However, in a swift response, Saintfiet denied he has accepted to work with any other Federation.

He disclosed that the President and board of the Asian Country’s FA offered him a contract with a mandate to resume immediately. However, he has stated emphatically that the Nigeria Football Federation job is his first priority and until the matter is resolved he cannot accept the Bengal Lions appointment.
