This post is just a pointer to how countries we emulate their football policies, programs and plans reason.
Charity they say begins at home. We have employed foreign coaches who contributed to develop our football. We have grown to the point of using what we have to get what we need.
There is nothing any foreign coach has achieved for Nigerian football that Late Stephen Okechukwu Keshi did not achieve before his death. He could have achieved more if, encouraged.
We should trust and believe in our own and ourselves. We must stop the Pull Him Down (PHD) syndrome. We should give the same contract, support and attention given to the foreign coaches to our indigenous coaches. We must be equally patient with them to build and achieve. We must eschew ethnic and religious considerations while appointing them. Merit should be the watchword.
