Gernot Rohr Signs Two-year Deal to Coach Super Eagles

- Advertisment -

For the first time in almost six months, the Super Eagles of Nigeria now has a substantive coach, as German tactician Gernot Rohr has signed a two-year deal to become technical adviser of the team.

The Nigeria Football federation (NFF) announced the deal on its Twitter account on Tuesday, two days after its technical and development committee recommended the former Burkina Faso coach.
Rohr’s appointment will now put to bed the embarrassment caused by NFF’s naming of Paul Le Guen as technical adviser, only for the Frenchman to turn down the offer.
The Nigeria Football federation (NFF) announced the deal on its Twitter account on Tuesday, two days after its technical and development committee recommended the former Burkina Faso coach.
Sunday Oliseh, the previous coach, who was unveiled on July 15, 2015, resigned on February 26, citing numerous acts of contract violation.
In recommending Rohr for the job, NFF’s technical and development committee described him as “calm, mature and possessing a good knowledge of the game in Africa”.
