Complete Sports reports that former French international, Olympique Lyon and Cameroon coach, Paul Le Guen, will be the new Super Eagles coach.
The coach will lead the Eagles when the final round of the qualifiers for the Russia 2018 World Cup start in October.
What comes as a shocker is that the coach will be paid $50,000 – approximately N16 million. Meanwhile, Sunday Oliseh was on a N5 million monthly salary and the NFF still defaulted in paying.
Le Guen who was sacked as Oman’s head coach after his side lost 2-1 to Turkmenistan on Nov. 17 last year, has agreed a three-year deal to coach the Super Eagles. He has also requested to reside in Lagos as against the proposed Abuja, a Nigeria Football Federation source has informed Completesportsnigeria.com.
It is also rumoured that a top sponsor of the Nigerian Football Federation, a bank, has already agreed to bankroll the salaries of the Frenchman.
