Super Eagles Coach: It's Time for Northern Nigeria to Lead

The impending appointment of a new head coach for Nigeria’s Super Eagles has stirred discussions regarding whether the next coach should be indigenous or foreign. However, one particular aspect that demands attention is the geographical representation of coaches, particularly from the northern region of the country.

Historically, all 12 indigenous coaches who have led the Super Eagles hailed from the southern part of Nigeria. This glaring absence of representation from the North raises concerns about fairness and inclusivity in the selection process. Despite producing esteemed coaches like Salisu Yusuf, Usman Abdallah, Abdul Maikaba, and Babaganaru Mohammed, the North has never been given the opportunity to lead the national team.

Salisu Yusuf, for instance, boasts an impressive track record and profound understanding of the intricacies of football management. He has worked with various clubs and has a perfect record in interim roles. Yet, he has been denied the chance to helm the Super Eagles.

Under the leadership of Ibrahim Musa Gusau, the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has an opportunity to rectify this longstanding imbalance. Zoning or rotating the head coach position could promote unity and fairness, ensuring that every region feels adequately represented.

The North is eager to contribute its share to national development through football. By appointing an indigenous coach from the North, the NFF can showcase the region’s capabilities and dispel negative stereotypes associated with it.

In conclusion, it is time for the NFF to prioritize inclusivity and consider appointing a deserving coach from the northern region to lead the Super Eagles, thus reflecting the diversity and talent present across Nigeria.
