There has been speculations on who tinkers the Super Eagles of Nigeria after Sunday Oliseh walked out on the team in February.
It was gathered that the NFF has already held talks with Le Guen who had a successful managerial career in France, most notably leading Olympique Lyonnais to three consecutive Ligue 1 titles.
He also managed Stade Rennais, Paris Saint-Germain, Glasgow Rangers and the Cameroon national team. A reliable source in the NFF discarded reports of employing a Serbian coach insisting that Paul Le Guen remains their favourite.
‘’Initially, we thought of getting a Serbian. We’ve since moved on and held talks with Le Guen who is enthusiastic on working with the star-studded Super Eagles.
He is a gentleman and stickler for discipline’’, our source noted. Le Guen qualified Cameroon for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, where they crashed out in the first round.
