Super Eagles coach: NFFdenies contacting Renard

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has dispelled reports it has established contact with Herve Renard for the vacant Super Eagles coaching job.

Reports emerged on Monday that the NFF has opened talks with the Frenchman to take charge of the Super Eagles.A top official of the soccer house has now denied the claim.

“This report is inaccurate. We’ve not contacted Renard or his representatives,” the official told BBC Africa.

Renard is expected to quit his role as head coach of the French women’s national team at the end of the 2024 Olympic Games.

The 55-year-old is eager to return to Africa, where he has achieved great success.

Renard led Zambia to win the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations and also repeated the same feat with Cote d’Ivoire in 2015.

The NFF is looking for a new coach for the Super Eagles following Finidi George’s resignation from the post.

A new coach is expected to be in place before the Super Eagles begin the qualifiers for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations in September.
