Renard will be a perfect choice for the super eagles if Rohr is sacked. Apart from helping Zambia and Ivory Coast win the Nations Cup in 2012 and 2015, Renard also has great knowledge concerning African football.  

2. Ruud Gullit

Before Rohr was appointed as Eagles coach, former Chelsea midfielder Gullit was also mentioned. The Dutchman remains a good choice as his modern football knowledge will help Nigeria to match up with other big European teams.

3. Sam Allardyce

It is always hard to talk about good coaches without mentioning Allardyce. The former West Ham United coach adapts easily to footballing environments and should also be considered.

A lot of football fans witnessed the progress that Grant brought to the Ghanaian national team when he was appointed. The former Chelsea coach can change quickly, and if a new manager is wanted by Nigeria, Grant is another good option.
