Coach Gernot Rohr Confirms Reaching An Agreement With NFF

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has confirmed he has agreed on a new two-and-half-year contract extension with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF.

Gernot Rohr has been in charge of the Super Eagles since 2016 and qualified the team for the 2018 World Cup in Russia with ease.

He also led the three-time African champions to finish third at Africa Cup of Nations in 2019 in Egypt.

The 66-year-old Franco-German’s current deal ends in June and he has been in discussions with the federation over a renewal since January.

The NFF gave him new conditions in his contract namely residing in Nigeria, being paid in Nigerian currency and grooming local talent from the Nigerian Football league, conditions he has since agreed to.

Coach Gernot Rohr said “Yes, I can confirm that we reached an agreement to continue our collaboration for two and half years,” 

I am proud of the confidence shown by NFF, it is rare to work in the same national team for more than six years.

“Our team has a good future, our players have discipline and the staff is working in the same spirit.”

Coach Gernot Rohr has already set his target of qualifying the Super Eagles for the next Africa Cup of Nations and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
