Eriksson accuses Nigeria FA officials of demanding money for Super Eagles job

Written by on November 14, 2022

 Sven Goran Eriksson has accused Nigerian football officials of asking to take half of his salary before giving him the job of managing the Super Eagles.

The Swedish football coach who has managed top sides, both club and country, said he was in the race to lead Nigeria to the first World Cup on African soil – South Africa, but his refusal to ‘play ball’ was the major reason why he missed the opportunity.

Lars Lagerback would later take the job and lead Nigeria to the World Cup where the team crashed out in the group stage.

Vanguard reports that Eriksson was in charge of Ivory Coast at South Africa 2010.
