The National Under-23 football team coach, Samson Siasia, has commended the Nigeria Football Federation for hiring ex-internationals to coach the Super Eagles.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the NFF was in talks with former Super Eagles’ captain, Sunday Oliseh, to coach the senior national team.
Siasia told sports journalists on Saturday in Port Harcourt that it was a good development for the growth of the game in the country and for ex-internationals with interest and experience in coaching.
According to Siasia, Oliseh is good, I just wish him the best of luck and hopefully he would succeed.
“He should know how this terrain is, we have been there for awhile, he has been in Europe, I pray for him to cope, and you know it is not easy,” he said.
Siasia said the U-23 team was well prepared to take on Congo on July 19 at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt.
He called on Port Harcourt fans to “come out in their numbers to support the team.”
