“There’s the June fixture against South Africa, then there are other fixtures for the AFCON. I think it’s imperative that I’m there and on the ground, not just for the NPFL because I think my job will also be to help co-ordinate the infrastructure of the coaches and the Philosophy of Nigerian football.

“I plan on going above and beyond. I know the major focus will be the Super Eagles, and I wouldn’t neglect that by any means. But there should be a process that the NFF is choosing a coach and a clear pathway for us to be developing coaches within our own infrastructure.”

Speaking about players plying their trade in the local Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL), Michael Nsien assured inclusiveness.

According to the tactician, it will do the local players a great deal to share the same dressing room with abroad-based players who play in top European leagues.

“As regards the NPFL, I say 100% that a coach has to be dedicated to viewing and understanding the league, not just for participation in the senior team, but I think it helps when you’re there and you’re watching games.

“It inspires players to go above and beyond because there’s hope, there’s belief that they can make that team. I think that inspires generations, and if local players do make the team and they are successful, then they get sold to big clubs, the money goes back to the club, they develop their other players, and build their status. Then, we will get the NPFL back to how it used to be then,” he said.

He added, “The NPFL brand can return to how it was 8-9 years ago. If I had the authority, I would make it mandatory to have three or four players from the local league in the senior team. We need players from the league to understand what it means and what it looks like to be around the top players in the world. So when they get back to their clubs, it rubs off on the other players.”
