Enyimba FC of Aba Coach Gbenga Ogunbote has said that now is the best time for any coach to swap club-coaching for national team.

Ogunbote, who was among the coaches interviewed for national team jobs on Tuesday in Abuja, said that the once any coach feels he or she is capable of handling the national team, such a coach must throw his hat into the ring.


Ogunbote told exclusively that even if he didn’t get the national team job now, he would try another time because he believes in his ability to handle the national team.

“One thing everybody must know is that Enyimba and every other team in Nigeria are under the national umbrella.

“It is the joy of every coach to serve their nation, most especially in areas where you bring joy to people,” Ogunbote said.
