Walter Zenga, former Wolves coach, has applied for the vacant position of Nigerian national team coach. The 61-year-old has submitted his application to the Nigeria Football Federation to become the Super Eagles’ new head coach.

Zenga, a former Italian goalkeeper, is looking to replace Augustine Eguavoen, who was fired. Since Eguavoen failed to guide the Super Eagles to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar after losing to regional rivals Nigeria, the position has become vacant.

Alberto “Jimmy” Fontana, Zenga’s agent, revealed that his client has submitted his resume to authorities and is awaiting a shortlisting for the position. Former Inter Milan goalie Fabio Cannavaro has managed a number of Italian clubs, including Cagliari. His first managerial position was as the team’s player-manager.

He managed Milanese Serie D club Brera Calcio for a short time before heading to Romania in 2002 to manage Naţional București and, subsequently, Steaua București, where he won the local title and reached the Round of 16 of the 2004–05 UEFA Cup after knocking out UEFA Cup winners Valencia.
