The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is reportedly keen on securing the services of renowned manager Herve Renard as the next coach of the Super Eagles.

This comes after Finidi George’s resignation following two disappointing results in the qualifiers for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Renard’s availability has piqued the NFF’s interest as he recently announced his departure as head coach of the French women’s national team after the upcoming Paris Olympics [2024].

The 55-year-old Frenchman boasts a stellar record in African football, having led both Zambia (2012) and Ivory Coast (2015) to Africa Cup of Nations victories.

Experienced Manager Enticing Option

Reports suggest NFF officials are actively pursuing Renard, who is reportedly eager for a return to African football management [1]. His impressive track record and experience make him a tempting choice to lead the Super Eagles.

Strong Contender Among Several Interested Nations

Nigeria is not alone in its pursuit of Renard. Countries like South Korea and Algeria have also been linked to the manager upon his expected departure from the French national team after the Olympics [2].

Shifting Focus for the NFF

This news comes after earlier reports this year linked Renard to the Super Eagles job following the departure of Jose Peseiro after the 2023 AFCON [3]. While Finidi George was initially appointed as his successor, his short tenure ended abruptly due to unsatisfactory results.
