THE NIGERIA FOOTBALL FEDERATION (NFF) HAS APPROACHED FORMER TOTTENHAM MANAGER, HARRY REDKNAPP, TO TAKE OVER THE SUPER EAGLES JOB ON FULL TIME.
A source close to the team told British newspaper, Daily Star that Redknapp could be appointed Eagles’ manager within few days.
The NFF last week named Salisu Yusuf as interim manager to take charge of two upcoming friendlies against Mali in Paris on May 27 and Luxembourg on June 1.
Redknapp is largely untested at international level after narrowly missing out on the England job to Roy Hodgson in 2012.
Last month, he concluded a two-game deal managing Jordan – reportedly a favour for the country’s FA president, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein.
