“The worst you can get in football is not getting results, the best you can get is winning all the time, and I will do my best to make sure the team works properly and we start winning games.

“What is in the contract is written boldly, it is what the Nigerian Federation and Nigeria in general want, but for me personally, my first goal is to make sure that we are on our way to qualifying for the World Cup.

“The AFCON qualifiers are definitely coming soon, but the key step for me is the two games we have. If we can beat South Africa and Benin, we will set the tone.”

Within the next few days, Fenidi is expected to announce his team’s roster for the 2026 World Cup qualifying matches.

Meanwhile, the NFF has announced that former Super Eagles striker Daniel Amokachi and Abidin Barua will be the assistant coach and goalkeeping coach respectively.
