According to Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), the coach was recommended by its technical and development committee.

The former Ajax and Real Betis winger had spent twenty months as an assistant to Peseiro and is expected to remain in charge of Enyimba, whom he led to the Nigerian title last year, until the end of the season.

His immediate national team assignments will be against Benin and South Africa in June’s World Cup Qualifiers Group C games.
