Emmanuel Amunike and Salisu Yusuf have been lined up as assistant Super Eagles coach to Gernot Rohr.
“It’s now left for the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to open talks with both Amuneke and Salisu because Rohr clearly needs a capable deputy,” a top source informed SCORENigeria
The same source revealed the NFF plan to appoint another local coach, who is more experienced than Joseph Yobo, who this year began to assist Rohr.
Yusuf previously occupied this post, but his contract was not renewed after the former Enyimba and Kano Pillars coach had served out a ban for receiving cash from undercover journalists.
Meanwhile, Yusuf has since signed a two-year contract with NPFL club Enugu Rangers.
Former international Amunike was also assistant to Samson Siasia in the 2017 AFCON playoffs against Egypt.
He led Nigeria to win a fifth U17 World Cup in Chile five years ago.
Amunike also qualified Tanzania to the 2019 AFCON, worked in Sudan and he is currently engaged as a sports director with a club in Egypt.
