The job of incumbent goalkeeper trainer Alloy Agu may be on the line as Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has appointed another man for the position.

Though the new goalkeeper trainer is expected to work with the home based Eagles preparing for the 2018 CHAN qualifier against Benin Republic, there are rumours he will replace Agu in the long run.

Nigeria Football Federation media officer Ademola Olajire, who did not reveal the name of the trainer, confirmed the new appointment on Brila FM.

“I may not be specific but what I can say is he’s expected to see the CHAN team in Kano.

“He wants to be there to see what they are doing and especially to look out for a home based goalkeeper, one of whom could be in goal in the match against Cameroon and probably Zambia,” Olajire said.

“A new Coach will be joining and supporting Mr Alloy Agu in building up the confidence of the home based goalkeeper.

“Rohr will also be around to monitor the team and sanction which goalkeeper will be selected for the clash against Cameroon next month.”

Nigeria is under pressure to secure a competent goalkeeper for the Super Eagles after shocking news that first choice Carl Ikeme was diagnosed with acute leukemia few weeks back.
