German manager Gernot Rohr has renewed and extended his stay as Super Eagles coach after agreeing to a new contract with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).
The news was confirmed by the NFF President Amaju Melvin Pinnick, Rohr and the NFF have locked in a contractual back and forth for over 3 months now with his current contract set to expire on the 1st of June next month.
All contractual discussions have now been concluded and Rohr who was first appointed in June 2016 will continue his work with the Super Eagles.
“I’m happy to announce that the @thenff and Coach Gernot Rohr have concluded all contractual discussions and he will stay on as Coach of the Super Eagles,” Pinnick on Wednesday, May 27, 2020, announced on Twitter.
“We can now focus on qualifying for the World Cup and winning the Nations Cup.
“In truth, these are sacrosanct and Coach Rohr is aware of these conditions. Like the Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development has rightly noted; we are uncompromising in these goals.
“The board of the Federation & I are totally in agreement with the minister on the goals for the team and it is unwavering.”
“With the distraction of the contract talks out of the way now, we can now face our football on the pitch, totally. Again, I never lost confidence in Gernot Rohr’s ability to take our football forward and I’m convinced our football will only get better from here on,” the NFF boss also said.
