Le Guen Allegedly ‘Rejects’ Eagles Job
There has been an unexpected twist in the search for a permanent coach for Nigeria’s Super Eagles as Frenchman Paul Le Guen has reportedly rejected the offer, Punch writes.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), on Monday, announced Le Guen as the new coach of the senior national team after picking him from a 3-man shortlist that included Belgian Tom Saintfiet and erstwhile interim manager Salisu Yusuf.
However, fresh reports have emerged that the 52-year-old former France international has rejected the offer because the Glass House failed to meet his terms and conditions, according to Punch.
Herve Penot, a reporter at influential French daily L’Euipe, broke the news on his Twitter handle @hpenot_lequipe.
Pour info : Paul le Guen n’ira pas au Nigeria. Les conditions pas réunies pour être sélectionneur. Rien à voir aujourd’hui avec la sélection

It reads in English: “Paul Le Guen rejects Nigeria. Frenchman insists the country’s FA (NFF) yet to meet terms & conditions to be coach.”
Neither the Technical and Development Committee of the NFF, nor their official Twitter handle (@theNFF) has responded to the shocking claim.
