Super Eagles Coach, Augustine Eguavoen has reportedly resigned his role as the head coach, according to leading Sports Radio Station in Nigeria, Brila fm.
“Austin Eguavoen has stepped down as Super Eagles Head Coach and will return to his role as Technical Director of all national teams.
“Reliable sources revealed Eguavoen has sent an official letter to the NFF stating his decision.
“Brila Media gathered that, in the aftermath of the failed World Cup bid, the NFF will announce the sack of Eguavoen, however, the embattled Coach is yet to sign the proposed two-year contract for the Super Eagles job which he was handed two days before the first leg of the World Cup play-off against Ghana.”
NFF is yet to issue official statement on the purported resignation of Eguavoen.
