There are report that Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr may vacate the post next summer as the Nigeria Football Federation seems unwilling to extend his contract which will expire in June 2020.
Rohr assumed the post in August 2016 signing a two-year contract and despite strong criticisms that greeted his appointment, the German-born tactician soon won over majority of the fans with a string of impressive results.
Less than a year after his appointment, the Super Eagles became the first African side to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia after a 1–0 win against Zambia.
The former Bordeaux tactician renewed his contract for two more years on the eve of Super Eagles’ participation at the World Cup in Russia.
The 66-year-old also guided the Super Eagles to a bronze medal feat at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
There were strong calls for Rohr’s dismissal after the competition but the NFF opted not to sack the former Gabon and Niger coach.
It was gathered on Thursday that NFF president, Amaju Pinnick is presently not keen on renewing Rohr’s contract once it expires.
