Harry Redknapp being considered as next Nigeria manager

Harry Redknapp is being considered as the next manager of Nigeria.

Current Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr sees his contract expire at the end of the month and there is serious doubt over the German's future.

It has led the Nigerian hierarchy to review their options meaning Redknapp could be set for a return to management.

A Super Eagles source told the Star : “The feeling is Harry Redknapp will be coming to manage Nigeria soon.’’

The African nation and the former Tottenham boss have previously held discussions about the role.

That was back in 2016 but negotiations broke down, however they are confident of completing a deal this time round.

The vast majority of Nigeria's players ply their trade in Europe and are well known.

Friendlies are also held in London on a regular basis given the amount of Nigerians playing in the Premier League which could prove advantageous in discussions.

Redknapp has never tried his hand at international management despite being heavily linked with the England job back in 2012.

He was favourite to replace Fabio Capello who had resigned just months before that summer's European Championships.
