Trapattoni rules out Nigeria role

MILAN - Ireland coach Giovanni Trapattoni has said he is not interested in taking over as Nigeria coach for the World Cup after Shaibu Amodu's dismissal.

"I still have a two-year contract with the Irish federation," he told Italian news service ANSA on Sunday.

"I won't hide the fact that other countries have shown interest in me but I am happy in Dublin so it's a no to Nigeria."
