There has been a shakeup in the constitution of the technical crew of the senior national team of Nigeria, OwnGoalNigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
We gathered from Wale Ajayi, that first assistant coach of the team who also doubles as the head coach of the team Salisu Yusuf has been demoted to the role of second assistant.
Enyimba’s coach Finidi George will now take the role of head coach stepping up from his role as second assistant. It means he will be the man in charge when the team take on Mexico and Ecuador respectively in two high profile friendly games.
He is expected to deputise for incoming foreign coach of the team Jose Peseiro who will be announced as coach in the coming days as first reported by this portal.
Yusuf will also keep his role as coach of the Nigeria U23 team and also that of the home base Super Eagles called CHAN Eagles. Usman Abdallah completes the Super Eagles technical crew set up.
