Gernot Rohr’s Contract As Super Eagles Coach Continues

The Nigeria Football Federation has officially announced that they have extended Gernot Rohr ‘s contract as Super Eagles’ coach, putting to sleep the reports of Harry Redknapp.

On Wednesday, the president of the NFF, Amaju Pinnick, announced via Twitter that both parties had concluded contractual negotiations resulting in the German tactician remaining with the Super Eagles.

I am pleased to announce that all contractual negotiations have been concluded by the Nigeria Football Federation and Coach Gernot Rohr, and he will stay on as Coach of the Super Eagles. We have always had faith in his skills and we are confident that from here the national team can only go higher.

We can now focus on qualifying to World Cup and winning the Cup of Nations. In fact, these are sacrosanct and those conditions are known to Coach Rohr. As has rightly been stated by the Honorable Minister of Youth and Sports Development; we are uncompromising in these objectives.

The Federation ‘s board & I are completely in agreement with the minister on the team’s priorities and it is unwavering. In the same vein I would like to thank our sponsors, in particular the group AITEO.

Even in these tough times, AITEO ‘s support for our football is unquantifiable, and I can’t emphasize enough how much rock they were. Thank you, AITEO.

Now, with the pressure from the contract talks out of the way, we can face our football on the field, absolutely. Again, I’ve never lost faith in Gernot Rohr’s ability to take our football forward and I’m sure that from here on our football can only get better.

This comes days after the German tactician announced he was given a new deal to remain the Super Eagles’ head coach for the next two and a half years.

Rohr ‘s contract was due to expire in June and it had been confirmed that Harry Redknapp of England was lined up to replace him.
