I desire to coach Super Eagles again -Jo BonfrÃ©re
Former Super Eagles coach, Johannes-Franciscus BonfrÃ©re popularly known as 'Jo' BonfrÃ©re in Nigeria, has openly admitted that he still misses coaching the senior national team of Nigeria.
Speaking exclusively on www.footballlive.ng, the Dutch coach confessed that he still misses the Super Eagles and would love to tinker the team again.
Bonfere, who assisted fellow Dutch, Clemens Westerhof to win Nigeria's second Nations Cup title in Tunisia '94, hinted that he desires to come back to coach the Eagles once again based on abundant talents in the country.
'I miss coaching Nigeria, miss working with the talented players in the land. I will not mind coaching the Super Eagles again. If I get the chance, I will definitely bring in my wealth of experience, my discipline and organisation and get the best of the country's players both at home and abroad,' Bonfrere admitted.
Bonfere, who led Nigeria to Africa's first Olympic football gold in 1996 with Kanu Nwankwo as captain, said that Nigeria has talented players and therefore should be among the best four football nations in the world if there is proper programme for the development of the round leather game in the country.
'Nigeria is abundantly blessed with top players and when managed well they will take the country places,' he explained.
And looking at the standard of the ongoing 2015 AFCON in Equatorial Guinea, he noted that the competition has been good while noting that the tournament clearly misses the Super Eagles.
'The standard of the competition is quite high, some teams have not played well. Cameroun for instance were poor and I'm not surprised they crashed out early.
'It's a pity Nigeria did not qualify and I think the AFCON misses the Super Eagles,' he added.
