Nigerian Coach rejects new contract

Swedish coach Lars Lagerback is not keen on continuing as the Coach of  the Nigerian Football Team and has turned down an offer for a renewal of  his contract

Lagerback led Nigeria to the World Cup, but despite managing just one point from three games, was offered a fresh four-year deal.

NFF spokesman Robinson Okosun said that the Swede sent in the letter early this week

“He said he was not keen on taking up the offer even though he enjoyed his time in Nigeria,” Okosun said.

Samson Siasia, who led the Under-23 team to silver medal placings at the 2008 Olympic Games and 2005 Under 20 World Cup tournaments, is the favourite to take over.
