Michael Nsien Eyes Super Eagles Coaching Role

Michael Nsien, the coach of the United States of America’s men’s U-19 national team and of Nigerian descent, has expressed his interest in becoming the next head coach of the Nigerian national team, the Super Eagles.
Speaking at a news conference in Abuja on Monday, Nsien emphasized his qualifications and experience, asserting himself as the ideal candidate to succeed Jose Peseiro.
With contenders like ex-internationals Emmanuel Amuneke and George Finidi also in the running, Nsien believes he can bring his understanding of Nigerian football and bridge the gap to elevate the Super Eagles to new heights on the global stage.
Despite residing abroad, Nsien, who hails from Eket in Akwa Ibom State, feels connected to Nigerian football and aims to make a significant impact as the head coach.
“It’s time to change course and move forward. I want to put smiles on the faces of our people,” he expressed.
Nsien’s coaching journey saw him rise from serving as an assistant coach at Tulsa Roughnecks to becoming the head coach in December 2018.
He was later appointed as the head coach of the United States U-16 men’s national team in 2022. Prior to his coaching career, Nsien showcased his talent as a left fullback at the University of Dayton, where he made 73 appearances and scored nine goals between 1999 and 2003.
As the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) continues its search for a new Super Eagles coach, Nsien emerges as a serious contender, eager to lead the national team to success and bring pride to Nigerian football.
