New Super Eagles Coach: Rodolfo Zapata Tops The List


The scramble for who takes over the position of Super Eagles coach has started after France kicked Nigeria National Team out of the Brazil World Cup 2014, in a match that revealed lack of technical department on the part of Eagles.

It will be recalled that a renown foreign Coach, Rodolfo Zapata, an Argentine and an authority on Super Eagles had correctly predicted that Nigeria would qualify for round of 16, but will need technical tactics to advance beyond that. He had made some good suggestions that appeared not to have been followed.

“Rolo” Zapata is not known to be amongst the foreign coaches currently talking with NFF but a sports pundit familiar with Zapata’s technical capacities told African Herald Express that “Zapata will make a great national coach above all others because he comes with a consistent history of passion for Nigerian soccer development”.

An official of the NFF who pleaded anonymity confirmed that they have been besieged by many interests from foreigners but said that it was too early for them to disclose the identities of such coaches since Keshi is yet to officially tender his resignation letter to the body.

Keshi had delivered a valedictory speech to his players at the dressing room in Brasilia after they were bundled out 2-0 by France to signal the rush for applications by many coaches who admire the abundance of talents that abound in the Super Eagles.

“Many coaches have expressed their interests in the job but we need to meet and review our performance in the World Cup and sundry issues”, a top NFF official told reporters.
