The Nigerian Football Federation has settled on four names to replace ex-Super Eagles manager Sunday Oliseh.

Following the resignation of Oliseh earlier on Friday the NFF has four candidates pegged for the job:

  • Salisu Yusuf: Super Eagles assistant coach.
  • Amodu Shuaibu: Former Nigera boss.
  • Emmanuel Amunike: Newly promoted U-20s boss and ex and Barcelona player.
  • Samson Siasia: Former Nigeria boss.

The front runners are Siasia and Amunike but the NFF are leaning towards Siasia as he is more familiar with the team. Also he will be assisted by Salisu Yusuf, kingfut understands.

According to KingFut sources this could only be temporary as the NFF president, first and second vice president are in Zurich for the Fifa elections and the NFF wants to appoint a foreign manager.

Nigeria and Egypt face off in qualifiers group G in Kaduna in March 2016.
