Impressed with the tactical prowess of Gernot Rohr, the Alherian national football federation has listed Nigeria’s Super Eagles coach as one of the managers to replace departing Algerian national team coach Rabah Madjer.
The Algeria sports daily Le Buteur had reported other coaches on the short-list include Christian Gourcuff, Vahid Halilhodzic, Hervé Renard, Carlos Queiroz, Alain Giresse.
The Algeria Football Federation recently dismissed Rabah Madjer following a poor run of results that saw the national team lose to Iran, Saudi Arabia, Cape Verde and Portugal in their last four friendlies. Algeria also failed to qualify for Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Rohr extended his contract with Nigeria before the World Cup until 2020, but it is claimed that there is a clause allowing him to negotiate his departure after the tournament in Russia.
