Former Heartland assistant coach, Emeka Ezeugo says he is not happy at the way he has been treated by officials of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF over coaching the Super Eagles.

Ezeugo told naijafootball247.blogspot.com that he has applied consistently for the Eagles’ top job since 2002 but is yet to get a response from the people that govern Nigerian football.

“I served this country well as a player and by the time I quit the game to get certified as a coach I have wanted to be part of my country’s national team set up.

“But what irks me the most is that nobody from the NFF even thought it courteous enough to acknowledge my applications for the job. I have just been completely ignored,” Ezeugo said.

According to the former Heartland assistant coach, Nigeria is fond of bringing in old coaches who really have nothing more to offer to the game rather than young ones with more modern ideas.

“In 2002 we brought back Onigbinde to take Nigeria to the World Cup, a man that last coached the national team in 1984 and then two years ago we brought back Shaibu Amodu who  at that time was not the best for the job,” he argued.

“I still want to coach my country but I will not fight any one for it and of course I will only go where I am appreciated.”

Ezeugo was until last month assistant coach at Heartland but left the club over contractual disputes.
