Interim coach of the Super Eagles, Salisu Yusuf, has expressed his joy at making a three-man shortlist of coaches to be interviewed for the job on Monday.
Yusuf, Paul Le Guen and Tom Sainfiet, are the managers who have been shortlisted by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
“I’m honoured by the trust and confidence shown by the federation and Nigerians in general that I can shoulder the responsibility at this level,” Yusuf, who has assisted Stephen Keshi, Sunday Oliseh and Samson Siasia, said.
“I hope to a worthy representative of all Nigerian coaches and the game in the country.
“All the coaches short listed are very experienced, but I am convinced I can do the job.
“I am therefore looking forward to the interview on Monday.”
The 54-year-old was in charge of the national team, for recent friendlies against Luxembourg and Mali.
