It has been gathered that top NFF officials have already met with Serbian coach Mladen Krstajic, who has been lined up to take over from Gernot Rohr as Super Eagles charge, just as several questions have already been asked about his suitability for the top post.
Mladen Krstajic, 47, has been interviewed by top officials in London as widely announced.
But SCORENigeria has now learnt that he does not speak English and so communication with both players and officials could be a major hindrance.
Some other top officials have also questioned his coaching pedigree.
“What has he achieved since he coached his country to the 2018 World Cup in Russia?” one official questioned.
What is only known about the young Serbian coach is that he prefers the 4-2-3-1 formation, which Rohr to qualify Nigeria to both the 2019 AFCON and 2018 World Cup.
But it has also been known that several other coaches including former Eagles coach Jo Bonfrere and Juan Antonio Pizzi, who previously handled Chile and Saudi Arabia, have also formally applied for the top post.
