Nigeria Cannot Afford To Pay A Foreign Coach -Sports Minister


Sports and Youths Minister, Solomon Dalung has said the Federal Government cannot afford to hire a foreign coach for the Super Eagles for now.

“I’ve always maintained that if we cannot pay indigenous coaches, we still owe them some months of salaries, some of them have even died without those salaries, do we still go and look for a foreign coach and will he be able to tolerate us without salaries for some time more also that we may also be paying him in hard currency? So, it’s a fundamental contradiction to swallow easily,” he said,

He also mentioned that, Nigerian indigenous coaches had always recorded poor performance in football because they had not been able to grow above parochial sentiments.
