Former Super Eagles midfielder, Seyi Olofinjana, has given reasons why he rejected a job offer from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

He was offered the job of Technical Director by NFF President, Amaju Pinnick.

After playing for 16 years, Olofinjana went into management and was named loan manager at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, in 2020, Pinnick approached the 40-year-old over the role currently occupied by Austin Eguavoen.

In an interview with BBC Sport Africa, Olofinjana said: “It was difficult, but at the same time, easy.

“I think the federation made it easier for me to make that judgement call. There were certain questions I asked of the federation that they weren’t able to answer.

“Do I regret saying no? Absolutely not. Is there a part of me that thinks it could be a good opportunity for me to go and put myself in the history books and try to help my people? Absolutely! I’m still looking for that opportunity.”
