Herve Renard in fresh links to Super Eagles job

Herve Renard net worth

Ex-Ivory Coast national team boss, Hervé Renard, is being linked with the vacant role in the next Super Eagles coach.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are looking for Finidi George’s replacement.

Finidi stepped down after less than two months in charge.

Reports originating from Africa Soccer and circulating in the Nigerian football community suggest that the NFF is pursuing the former Saudi Arabia boss in their bid for a 2026 World Cup ticket.

The Nigeria Football body has a long history of owing coaches and players salaries and bonuses. Pursuing Renard’s signature may be another financial burden to avoid.

Renard’s annual salary as head coach of Saudi Arabia during the 2022 FIFA World Cup was reported to be £999,961 (€1,171,734) by Finance Football. According to The Athletic, as reported by Citisports, Renard earns £345,000 (€400,000) annually as the head coach of France’s Women’s National Football Team.

This suggests that the Nigerian football organization cannot afford to pay the former Zambian national team boss, who would demand nothing less than $90,000 monthly if he were to consider coaching Nigeria.

Notably, José Peseiro quit the Super Eagles role because the NFF could not afford to meet his $50,000 monthly wage demands.
