Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) may be willing to pay a monthly wage of $50,000 for the Super Eagles’ new foreign coach; which is twice what former coaches Stephen Keshi and Sunday Oliseh earned on the job.
The NFF have already been sounding out several candidates for the top coaching post.
Former Cote d’Ivoire and Zambia coach Herve Renard and Uganda coach Micho have already been approached in the last few weeks, with both turning down the offer.
Meanwhile, former Cameroon coach Paul Le Guen is the latest to be contacted by the NFF, according to sources.
Le Guen has been without a job since November when he was sacked by Oman.
The Super Eagles caretaker coach, Samson Siasia is expected to revert to his post as the country’s Olympic team after the AFCON qualifiers against Egypt.
