“I won’t really want to say foreign coach is what the Eagles need, but I think the rate at which the team is declining, a foreign coach might be what we should consider at this point, no disrespect to our home-grown coaches,” Sodje told AfricanFootball.com. “But we need a proven and good manager, someone who has the credentials to speak for him. If NFF is not ready for such coach, there is no need to get a foreign coach.”

Sodje added that he wasn’t disrespecting the home-trained coaches, but they just weren’t as good as their foreign peers.

“No disrespect to Nigerian coaches, but the fact remains we really lack a top-grade manager,” he said. “There are so many things they can do to improve themselves, though administrators still have a big part to play in this. The sad thing is that the few local coaches I have met think they know everything and then they stop learning.”
