Like the biblical Paul who went on three missionary journeys preaching the gospel and performing miracles, another Paul is set to embark on his second missionary journey as Flying Eagles chief coach.
Adjudged the best National team coach in 2019 due to his sterling performances with the Under 20 National team that saw Nigeria make it to the last 16 of the 2019 FIFA Under 20 world cup in Poland and a Silver winning exploit at the All Africa games in Egypt, Paul is the man looking good to get the job again
Blessed with UEFA A’ Licence certificate, the former Warri Wolves and Enyimba FC chief coach is currently in the United kingdom undergoing intensive coaching from some of the world’s best coaches as the Covid-19 pandermic persists.
He has travelled from London to Ireland and lately Scotland to beef up his credentials
A top official of the NFF told this reporter that Paul is top on a list of four and is looking food for the job. According to him, Paul Aigbogun has done well for himself after the Under 20 World cup in Poland. I understand that a few persons are not happy with his team’s performance in Poland but he remedied the situation with a fine showing in Egypt during the AAG. I am not his fan but from what i hear and based on the list of those who applied for the Flying Eagles job, he stands out interms of credentials and exposure.
Remember, this is not entirely the NFF’s decision to make. I am not saying we can’t make some inputs but the decision is that of Prime Water company PWC. We have given them the authority to act on our behalf. They are seriously scrutinising all the applications on their table and will come out with the best names in the coming days.
I understand why many are saying Paul will get it because from the list of coaches that have appled for the Under 20 job, he stands out.
All i can say for now, is that everyone should stay calm with fingers crossed, a definite decision will be made that will be in the best interest of Nigerians he concluded.
Five of Paul Aigbogun’s discoveries from the last FIFA world cup have gone on to sign improved contracts with top European clubs.
