According to fresh reports this morning, Nigeria Football Federation are set to appoint a foreign coach after failure to qualify for AFCON back-to-back.
According to Punch, the federation is already in talks with the French coach but the NFF members would meet with Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, on Tuesday to finalise discussions on the matter.
It was also gathered from a top official in the glasshouse that the french coach is willing to work with Nigeria legend, Okocha as a member of his technical crew.
But he disclosed that ex-international Emmanuel Amuneke and Salisu Yusuf would also assist the coach if he eventually gets the job.
He will be paid €44,000 monthly but the president of the federation have failed to comment on the latest development.
