The football fans over by the bar today have been surprised to hear that Harry Redknapp has been linked with a shock career move to the manager of the Nigerian national team.
The report, published in The Daily Star, claims that Redknapp, who left his role at Queens Park Rangers in early 2015, is set to take charge of the African side in the coming days.
Since then, the ex-Tottenham Hotspur boss has been the manager of Jordan, as well as the director at Wimborne Town and a football advisor for Derby County.
The Super Eagles are one of Africa’s biggest clubs but are currently on the lookout for a new manager following the exit of Sunday Oliseh back in February 2016 after just eight months at the helm.
The African side currently have Samson Siasia as an interim manager, but our landlord believes that the Nigeria job could be an interesting move for Redknapp, who has never managed in Africa before.
