Ex-Chelsea boss Hoddle set to take Nigeria job

Former Chelsea and England boss Glenn Hoddle is set to take charge of Nigeria.

The Daily Mail says Hoddle flew to Africa last night to meet with the Nigerian Football Federation.

Hoddle, 52, has been concentrating on his Academy in Jerez, Spain, since leaving Wolves in July 2006. The Academy aims to get young players who have been released by clubs back into the game.

But it is thought that the chance to take Nigeria to the World Cup in South Africa would appeal to Hoddle, who could take the job on a short-term basis and then return to Spain to concentrate on his business venture.

Nigeria need a new head coach after sacking Shaibu Amodu after their relatively disappointing showing during the Africa Cup of Nations last month.
