Algeria have a three man shortlist of their main managerial targets, as confirmed by the head of the Algerian Football Federation. All three managers have international experience.
Kheiredine Zetchi confirmed in an interview following Madjer’s sacking that the three targets are Herve Renard, Vahid Halilhodzic and Carlos Queiroz.
Bosnian coach Halilhodzic managed Algeria from 2011 to 2014, and helped them reach the last 16 of the World Cup in Brazil. He most recently took charge of Japan, and is the only target that is currently unemployed.
Frenchman Renard is currently in charge of Morocco, but is expected to leave following the World Cup in Russia after a disappointing campaign with zero points.
Portuguese Quieroz, who beat Algeria in a friendly this year, has been in charge of Iran since 2011 and has impressed the globe with his tactics despite limited resources.
Algeria have a couple of months to appoint a new manager, before the Africa Cup of Nations qualification begins in September with a trip to Gambia. It is clear that Zetchi is opting for targets now that have key managerial experience at international level.
