Super Eagles interim coach, Austine Eguavoen, has refused to rule out the possibility of managing the team on a permanent basis.
Eguavoen was placed in temporary charge of the three-time champions after Gernot Rohr was sacked.
He has now led the team to two wins out of two at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
Portuguese tactician, Jose Peseiro, is expected to take over when the AFCON ends.
However, Eguavoen has now put himself in a good position to get the job on a permanent basis, following the Nigeria’s impressive start at the 2021 AFCON finals in Cameroon.
He was asked at Tuesday’s press conference if he would be interested in becoming the permanent manager of the Super Eagles.
“If they gave me the job, why not?
“These questions have come many, many times, but I’m very happy with the position I occupy with the Nigeria Football Federation.
“Yes, if they asked me for it, yes maybe, just maybe and when we get to that river, we will cross it,” Eguavoen replied.
