Egypt FA want to clarify Nigeria interest in Shehata

Egypt coach Hassan Shehata screams from the sidelines at the 2010 Nations Cup
Hassan Shehata is one of the favourites on the Nigeria wishlist

The Egypt Football Association (EFA) would like to clarify the Nigeria interest in their coach Hassan Shehata.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) need a coach to lead their side at June's World Cup after demoting Shaibu Amodu.

Shehata is one of several candidates on the NFF's preferred list.

The EFA President Samir Zaher will now approach his counterpart at the NFF Sani Lulu to find what sort of a deal they are proposing.

Shehata has declared an interest in coaching Nigeria, but only if the NFF could secure permission from his employers.

It is something of a turn around for the EFA who had said last week they would not let Shehata consider another role at the moment.

The 60-year-old led Egypt to their third consecutive Africa Cup of Nations trophy in January.
