Eguavoen's move to Leopards gets more support


This was said by Nigeria’s current national U-23 coach Samson Siasia.

In an interview with, the former Super Eagles striker said that it was best for Eguavoen that he traveled outside of Nigeria, away from the unsettled hubbub surrounding the job of the technical crew of the Super Eagles.

“My thoughts about this are that he will now have another chance to concentrate on taking his career as a coach to another level,” Siasia said.

“There has been so much confusion about his status back at home, but he will now have that chance to concentrate on a new challenge in the job.”

Siasia added that he is confident Eguavoen will be able to prove himself at the South African Premiership outfit, despite the club currently being bottom of League.

Another Nigerian coach, Felix Okey Emordi, of Aba’s Enyimba, also stated his satisfaction with news that outgoing Super Eagles’ assistant coach had moved to the relegation-threatened Limpopo Province outfit.
