    Liberian footballing legend George Weah has admitted an interest in becoming the new coach of Nigeria.

    "If I have the opportunity, why not? Nigeria is one of the big African names and I am capable of coaching the Super Eagles," said the former Liberia player-manager, who became the first African to win the prestigious European Football of the Year award during his time with Milan.

    Weah is not amongst the half-dozen coaches -which includes Frenchmen Bruno Metsu and Alain Giresse- already short-listed by The Nigerian Football Association (NFA), who are planning to name a new coach in time for next January's African Nations Cup finals in Tunisia.

    In other news out of Africa, The Zambian Football Federation have announced that former PSV player Kalusha Bwalya has agreed to take over the the senior national squad, the junior squad and the U17 team from Patrick Parri.
