Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has appointed ex-Barcelona winger, Emmanuel Amuneke, to join Augustine Eguavoen as joint-head coaches of the national team.
The Super Eagles are officially without a handler after Eguavoen stepped down from his interim role following the team’s early exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
The 56-year-old took over after Gernot Rohr was sacked in December.
The NFF initially lined up Jose Peseiro as the substantive head coach but that appointment is yet to be ratified.
Instead, the federation is understood to be considering sticking with Eguavoen and adding Amuneke to his coaching crew.
