“Rohr’s contract as Super Eagles coach is still on” – NFF confirms



The Super Eagles’ media officer, Toyin Ibitoye, has stated that head coach’s position is not up for grabs.

Speaking with The Guardian, Ibitoye stated that Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has sent its new manager, Gernot Rohr, contract guidelines.

Rohr has two months left on his existing deal and is yet to agree fresh terms.

The delay has led to speculations that NFF may be looking for a new coach.

Former internationals Finidi George, Emmanuel Amuneke and Sunday Oliseh have been linked to the role.

However, Ibitoye has clarified the situation.

“The NFF has not declared Gernot Rohr’s position vacant. I don’t know where the news that different coaches have been contacted by the NFF to coach the Super Eagles is coming from.

“Rohr’s contract as the Super Eagles coach is still on until June and the NFF has sent him new contract guidelines to sign.
