Clemens Westerhof says he can “make Nigeria great again” if he is appointed coach for a second time.
Nigeria, who have failed to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, are seeking a permanent coach following Sunday Oliseh’s resignation in March.
Westerhof coached Nigeria for five years from 1989, winning the 1994 Nations Cup and leading them to their first World Cup in the same year.
The Super Eagles won the 2013 Nations Cup but have now failed to qualify for two consecutive tournaments.
Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick has publicly stated he believes only a foreign coach can revive the fortunes of the three-time African champions.
Dutchman Westerhof feels he is the right man for the job and insists he has unfinished business with the Super Eagles.
