SCORENigeria can exclusively report that there will be several shock postings when the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) finally announce new coaches for the various national teams.
A top official informed SCORENigeria these appointments will most likely be made this week after so many months of speculations.
It was also gathered that a lot of horse trading, lobbying and politicking have had to happen for the many interests on the NFF executive committee to be catered for.
For the age-group teams, popular names have been linked with a return to their posts, but SCORENigeria has now learnt that will not be the case.
It was further understood that one of these coaches will stage a remarkable comeback to the national set-up after more than a decade away.
Another designated head coach, a former Super Eagles star, will finally step up as boss after serving as a loyal assistant.
“A few coaches who were promised jobs will be devastated because they won’t get them,” a top official told SCORENigeria
“One could say it’s a fresh departure in some ways.”
