Austin Eguavoen: My Appointment As Eagles Interim Coach Surprised Me by robosky02(m): 2:20pm On Dec 16, 2021
Interim Super Eagles boss, Augustine Eguavoen said he was shocked when his name was announced as the next coach of the national team.

Franco-German gaffer, Gernot Rohr was sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) over the weekend after a series of not-too-good results during the World Cup qualifying series.

Eguavoen said he never expected that the former Burkina Faso coach would be sacked despite a cloud hanging over his future.

Technical Director of the Federation, Eguavoen was appointed to take over the managerial reins for the time being.


“I would say I was shocked, I was surprised when my name was announced after a brief discussion but I thought Gernot Rohr will continue because it has always been is he going to continue is he not going to continue, we’re going to sort things out,” Eguavoen told Channels Television.

“And then when my bosses spoke to me about it a couple of days ago I was like why not but is there a possibility that we can sort things out with him.

“We couldn’t get things sorted out and you know when stuff like this happens, the next person in line is the Technical Director.

“It’s something I’ve been through before, I am in the system, I know everything about the players and management, of course, the administration also.

Eguavoen is saying half truth!

Eguavoen is a schemer and deep inside, he wanted the job and wished for it. I remember how he stabbed his best friend, Keshi at the back to take over the Eagles job years ago!!

His first stint as a coach was not satisfactory. With the benefit of doubt, we hope you surprise us this time

Mark it down. Eguavoen as coach will be the final nail in the coffin for the Super Eagles.
Same Eguavoen that messed up against Italy in the 1994 World Cup second round. I am not expecting much from him. Maybe he would shock us too my bring home a trophy.

I remember how Roberto Baggio's equalizer goal slipped past his legs and how he finally gave Italy the wining goal penalty.

This man has not even started and he's already being shocked. I have a feeling that he'll also say that he's shocked, when or if he loses any match in the nearest future. God deliver us!
