Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp could be the new head coach of the Super eagles in a shock appointment, the Daily Star has claimed.
The Nigeria Football Federation appointed Salisu Yusuf as interim manager this week to take charge of two upcoming friendlies against Mali in Paris on May 27 and Luxembourg on June 1.
But Redknapp, who was once tipped to become England coach, has been reportedly approached to take over the Super Eagles full time.
Daily Star claims that a source close to the team revealed Redknapp could be named as the next permanent Nigeria manager within a few days.
Sunday Oliseh, who left in February after falling out with the NFF over unpaid salaries, was the last permanent head coach of the Super Eagles.
Redknapp is largely untested at international level after narrowly missing out on the England job to Roy Hodgson.
Last month Redknapp, 69, finished a two-game deal managing Jordan – reportedly a favour for the country's FA president Prince Ali bin al-Hussein.With 1xBet you get High Odds, Fast Payouts, Wide Selection of Sports Events, Online Streaming and Huge Bonuses... sign up now.
