More than 60 coaches have reportedly applied for the vacant positions of the national teams that were advertised by the Nigeria Football Federation, but that of Super Eagles held by German Gernot Rohr was not included.
The NFF disengaged the coaches after their contracts expired, citing poor performance of the teams as the reason.
After that, the Federation threw open these positions but some of the coaches who were relieved of their duties are said to have reapplied to keep their position, that’s according to a source at the Glass House.
“All former head coaches of the national youth teams of Nigeria have submitted their letters of application to continue in their roles following the expiration of their contracts which weren’t renewed by the NFF, “the source said.
The likes of coach Manu Garba, Paul Aigbogun and Imama Amapakabo have all applied to keep their jobs as coach of the Under-17, Under-20 and Under-23 respectively.
Some of their assistants also applied.
Only this time, the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF will not be in charge of the recruitment; it has been handed over to a private firm.

The firm will be screening all candidates before conducting an interview among the coaches for recommendations to the NFF.
