Paul Le Guen has been named the new Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles, by the Technical and Development Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Monday.

The 52-year-old Frenchman will be assisted by Salisu Yusuf, who has been appointed as Chief Coach.

Spokesman of the Committee, Paul Bassey, told thenff.com, that Enugu Rangers coach, Imama Amapakabo and former Super Eagles’ goalkeeper and skipper Alloy Agu, who served as assistant coach and goalkeeper trainer for the games against Mali and Luxembourg in May, retain their places in the technical crew.

Bassey however noted that the recommendations were subject to ratification by the Executive Committee of the NFF.

“About a week ago, this committee met and shortlisted three coaches for the post of the Technical Adviser for the Super Eagles.

“Today, we have made a recommendation to the board that Paul Le Guen be appointed the Technical Adviser.


“We have also made other recommendations, that Salisu Yusuf and Imama Amapakabo be the assistants to Le Guen, while Alloy Agu should serve as goalkeeper trainer.

“We have also recommended that Bitrus Bewarang be appointed the National Technical Director (NTD) and Nduka Ugbade be returned to the Golden Eaglets as assistant to Manu Garba.

“Baring agreement on contract terms, emoluments, allowances and entitlements, Le Guen becomes the Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles”.
