Nigeria's coaching search continues: five viable candidates for the job

Sam Allardyce is all smiles after being named England manager, a job he says he has waited years for.
Tom Saintfiet has plenty of experience coaching in Africa. Might he be the right man for the job?

Nigeria got themselves into a bit of a pickle this week with their intended appointment of Frenchman Paul Le Guen as national coach. By the time the dust had settled, it was clear that the arrangement was over well before it had any chance of getting off the ground.

And so, the NFF have now launched a fresh, seven-day search for a replacement. Here are five possible candidates they should consider.

Goran Stevanovic

The Serbian manager spent time in Ghana with the Black Stars in 2011, but...

What Nigeria striker Ahmed Musa brings to Leicester City

The ESPN FC guys answer your tweets about Antonio Conte, Leicester City and Gareth Bale.

One of the first games Ahmed Musa played for the senior Nigeria team was an African Nations' Cup qualifier in October 2010 against Guinea in Conakry.

With Nigeria trailing 1-0, stand-in coach Augustine Eguavoen threw on the youngster late in the second half. Within minutes, his pace was burning the lungs out of the Guinea defenders. Even Eguavoen himself looked exhausted just watching Musa fly.

That pace almost earned Nigeria a point. One typical run saw Musa get in behind the Guinea defence...

Nigeria look to Europe for next coach, who will face daunting WCQ challenge

Paul Le Guen
Former Cameroon manager Paul Le Guen remains the favourite to take over the Nigeria national team.

Nigeria are in the hunt to find a new coach to manage the senior national team, but that process is anything but simple. Since the departure of Lars Lagerback in 2010, the country has stayed to local coaches for the national team. Samson Siasia, Stephen Keshi and Sunday Oliseh have all had had their turn at managing the Super Eagles.

Of the three, Keshi was the most successful, guiding the team to the African Nations Cup title in 2013 and the round of 16 at the World Cup a year later, but was...

Lagerback doing for Iceland at Euro 2016 what he could've done for Nigeria

One of first things I heard Lars Lagerback say during his time in Nigeria was that the country had a lot of talents, but needed more long-term planning to translate that talent into sustained success.

That was my first meeting with him, soon after he was appointed Nigeria coach. He had arrived at the Nigeria Football Federation secretariat in Abuja to discuss his preparation programme with federation officials. It was a rare moment, with minimal media attention and not that many people around....

Kelechi Iheanacho issue shouldn't overshadow Nigeria's Olympic prep

Kelechi Iheanacho would arguably perform well at the Olympics, but he must wait to earn his place.

There is plenty to be said for having a star player of genuine, game-changing quality on a football squad, especially one that is heading for a major tournament. In Kelechi Iheanacho, Nigeria have a youngster with the slowly realising potential to be among the best the country has produced.

It explains why Samson Siasia is so keen to have him as part of his Olympic team for the Games in Rio this summer. That desire has hit a snag, however, with the Nigeria coach lamenting early this week that...
