Paul Le Guen, qualified the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon for the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has chosen Paul Le Guen, as the new Super Eagles coach.
According to multiple reports, the football house picked the Frenchman, from a three-man shortlist that included Salisu Yusuf and Tom Saintfiet.
The Frenchman who will lead Nigeria to Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup will be officially unveiled by the NFF Technical and Development Committee on July 18, 2016.
It is also understood that the NFF will consider former Kano Pillars boss, Salisu Yusuf, as an assistant coach. Yusuf had earlier said he was not interested in being second in command to anybody.
The official said: “As it is now the position of the deputy has been thrown open because Yusuf is still insisting that he would not work as an assistant to Le Guen.
“Those who worked on their entries picked the Frenchman and with the hope that Yusuf could learn a lot from him for the immediate future but he (Yusuf) appears to have some other ideas so the federation will now have to consider a new person altogether to replace Yusuf.”
