Frenchman Paul Le Guen has been named the New Technical Adviser of the Senior National Team, Super Eagles. Le Guen, 52 will be assisted by Nigerian Salisu Yusuf, who takes the role of Chief Coach. The Technical and Development Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said on Monday that the appointments are subject to agreement of contract terms with the NFF Executive Committee.

The new Eagles’ boss Le Guen steered the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon to the 2010 Fifa World Cup finals in South Africa. He played for Brest, Nantes and Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and won 17 caps for France before coaching Rennes, Lyon, PSG (in France) and Glasgow Rangers (in Scotland). He also coached Oman. Yusuf, capped at U20 level by Nigeria, called the shots in interim capacity for two international friendly matches in Europe at the end of May which the Eagles won.

Spokesman of the Committee, Paul Bassey told thenff.com after the meeting at the NFF secretariat on Monday that Enugu Rangers gaffer Imama Amapakabo and former Super Eagles’ goalkeeper and skipper Alloy Agu, who served as assistant coach and goalkeeper trainer for the games against Mali and Luxembourg in May retain their places in the technical crew.
