Rohr To Stay On As Super Eagles Manager – NFF

​Gernot Rohr will remain as Super Eagles coach despite the country’s early exit from the World Cup in Russia, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have confirmed. 

Rohr and his side finished third in Group D after winning one and losing two in their group stage matches, and the Franco-German has received huge criticism for the team’s performance in Russia. 

However, NFF president Amaju Pinnick has maintained Rohr has a new two-year contract and it will be honoured. 
“I am not one of those who is asking for the coach to go,” Pinnick said.
“He has a new two-year contract and we will respect it. He has a young team who he will build on with the likes of Henry Onyekuru, Victor Osimhim, Kelechi Nwakali, Usman Mohammed and Junior Lokosa all now set to join this team.”

In September, Nigeria will resume the qualifying tournament for next year’s AFCON in Cameroon after they lost their opening game 2-0 to South Africa in Uyo in June 2017.
