Super Eagles get foreign coach: NFF appoints Gernot Rohr

It seems the Nigeria Football Federation no longer has confidence in Nigerian coaches to manage the Super Eagles. After a failed attempt, NFF has selected a German, Gernot Rohr to manage the Eagles.

NFF boss, Amaju Pinnick, said the German, who is currently working on development programmes for the German Football Federation, is expected to arrive in Nigeria on Saturday.

Pinnick told Punch that Gernot Rohr is also expected to be in Lagos on Sunday where he would be at the stands to watch the league match between Ikorodu United and Sunshine Stars.

Pinnick said, “We are just tying up the little details left to be handled. The work started quite a while ago but there was the need to wait until everything firmed up before making it public.”

The new Eagles coach would be introduced to Nigerians in Abuja on Monday.
