Former Super Eagles coach, Clemens Westerhof who led Nigeria to its first World Cup and won the Nations Cup with the Super Eagles in 1994 has indicated he’d love the opportunity to coach the Super Eagles.Westerhof also took a shot at former Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh.Speaking in an interview, he said
“I know what Nigeria lacks and I can make them great again,” he said.”Just give me the Super Eagles again and watch what we can all achieve together.Nigeria need a strong person with the required experience to bring them out of the negative position they are in right now.Nigeria is a big country and the national team should be in the top 10 in Fifa’s world rankings, not the 67th position they currently occupy.For 22 years I have watched everything I built slowly collapse and all I need is a chance to fix the national team again.With due respect to Sunday Oliseh, he was a good player but the job of managing Nigeria is not for an inexperienced person and that is the reason things never worked out.I know what Nigeria lacks and need to be respected in the world again. ”
Westerhof who coached Nigeria for five years and also went on to coach other teams like Zimbabwe, Mamelodi Sundowns says he still has some unfinished business with the Eagles
“I left Nigeria as number five in the world and now I want to do it again, this is my second country and what I accomplished then is possible again,” he said.”Just give me the Super Eagles again and watch what we can all achieve together.”
The Super Eagles are right now without a full-time coach with Siasia having to coach both the u-23 and the senior team at a time,soccer loving Nigerians would be hoping a new coach is employed in earnest for preparations to begin for the World Cup in Russia 2018.
