Former Super Eagles coach, Austin Eguavoen has ran from the post of the coach of Super Eagles even without been considered to take the job. For now, Eguavoen still wants to sleep in peace without the huge bundle of handling the team resting on his shoulders

He spoke after the unveiling of the Jay- Jay Okocha Foundation in Lagos. “I know before you count three coaches in Nigeria, you sure would count me, but I am not interested. I need to take some time off, hone my skills and come back in a bigger way. That’s my immediate plan,” Eguavoen said.

He called on Nigerians to support any coach given to Super Eagles “As for me, I would be fine with whoever the NFF settles for, but they should be fast about it because the World Cup qualifiers are fast approaching and we are in a very strong group.” He was however, confident the Eagles will do well if they start strongly. “If we start well, perhaps with a win or a draw in Zambia, we can qualify,” he said.
