Frenchman Paul Le Guen has rejected the job of Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles the Nigerian Football Federation offered him. The news of the rejection came in less than 24 hours after he was recommended for appointment. The Technical and Development Committee of the NFF had on Monday, after its meeting in Abuja, recommended Le Guen to its Executive Committee for appointment as Super Eagles Technical Adviser. Paul Bassey, a member of the committee, had told newsmen that Le Guen was recommended to the executive committee even before concluding agreement on contract terms. Le Guen “Baring agreement on contract terms, emoluments, allowances and entitlements, Le Guen becomes the Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles,’’ he had said. About 24 hours later, the NFF confirmed the Frenchman’s rejection of offer of appointment in a statement by Ademola Olajire, its Assistant Director of Communications. Why Le Guen rejected Super Eagles job The statement quoted Chairman of NFF’s Media and Publicity Committee, Suleiman Yahaya-Kwande, as saying Le Guen said he was not ready to live in Nigeria while working for Nigeria. “Apart from this, he also did not want to be given a target,’’ Yahaya-Kwande said in the statement. “The statement on the recommendations was clear, to the effect that all appointments made at the Technical and Development Committee meeting were mere recommendations, which had to be deliberated upon.
