Algeria Linked With Paul Le Guen
Local media reports have linked failed Nigeria target Paul Le Guen to the vacant coaching post at the World Cup rivals Algeria.
The Algeria football federation (FAF) have swung into action to replace the Serb Milovan Rajevac, who quit his post this week after Algeria were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Cameroon in a World Cup qualifier.
Le Guen sensationally turned down a chance to handle Nigeria’s Super Eagles even after his appointment was announced by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
He is still without work and has now been mentioned with the Algeria top job along compatriots Alain Perrin and Rolland Courbis.
And it is looking increasingly likely that the new Algeria coach will be a French man with FAF president Mohamed Raouraoua presently in Paris to discuss with one of these targets.
The speed with which FAF have achieved to hire a new coach could well see them have their man in place before next month’s World Cup qualifier against Nigeria in Uyo.
The FAF boss was earlier this week cautious that a permanent coach will only be engaged before next year’s AFCON in Gabon.
