Kanu to manage Nigeria?

Kanu to manage Nigeria?

The Daily Mail is today reporting that with Nigeria set to sack Berti Vogts after a poor showing at the African nations, Kanu is being lined up to replace him.

From what I can gather Vogts has not been the most popular manager with Nigeria and is highly likely to get the boot, and with Kanu quite literally being the 'king of Africa' let alone Nigeria this could be a plausible option.

Lets say that Kanu did get the job - if it becomes available, that would not mean he calls time on his playing career would it? Surely not...

I don't have a problem with him hanging up his boots. If we move on without Benjani, I think we can do the same with Kanu. Kanu has helped raise the profile of the club & his goals, especially at the start of last season, have given given us a fanatstic platform to build on. We thank him immensley for that. However that was then & this is now. Time is moving quickly, so good luck Kanu.

I've got the answer - Kanu goes off to manage Nigeria, so we bring back Benjani instead of Kanu, (ManC clearly don't want him) and keep Defoe's deal as a loan for now and make it permanent in the summer. Sorted!

We can have a pre season friendly in Lagos as well as Bournemouth and Torquay! Seriously though, I'd be happy to say thanks for everything and good luck in the future.

Well it can't get much worse than Mr Charisma Berti Vogts can it? He obviously has a huge passion for his nation so why not? See out the rest of the season with us and go for it King Kanu.

I think it would be great to say goodbye with a nice send-off with Kanu moving on to manage his country. Fairytale!

ideal scenario would be he takes it 'part time' now, sees out this season - without getting his automatic year extension - bows out gracefully having helped us into europe then takes over nigeria, everyone is then a winner...

See out the season, move on as King Kanu and a Pompey hero. End it with a testimonial with all the other african premier players, for either his pocket or his charity or a bit of both, and take over the nigerian post. As Imazav says, its a fairytale ending for a king.

I'm all for fairytale endings and wish him luck but still hope HR lets him go.

Agree Rug, let the tall one go and bring in the other one; Mr Crouch. I believe that that was very close to being a deal on Thursday instead of Defoe but Liverpool bumped the price up. It looks like Nugget will go (shame but reality) and that really only leaves us Baros, Defoe and Utaka so we will still need another striker.
