Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr signs two-year contract extension

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has signed a two-year contract extension with Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr.

NFF 1st Vice President, Seyi Akinwunmi, explained yesterday that Rohr, initially taken on board in July 2016, deserved the extension after qualifying the Super Eagles for the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals, even with a match to spare.

Rohr, who played as a defender and has coached Burkina Faso, Niger Republic and Gabon national teams before landing in Nigeria, expressed joy at the extension of the relationship, while insisting that the Super Eagles players and officials must remain level-headed and focused going forward.
