OFFICIAL: Rohr pens two-year contract extension with NFF


Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has officially penned a two-year contract extension with the Nigeria Football Federation. 

The 64-year-old put pen to paper at the unveiling ceremony of Coca-Cola as official soft drinks partner of the national teams at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.


Rohr, whose previous contract was due to expire immediately after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, has been entrusted to manage the Super Eagles for another two years.

The Franco-German was appointed coach of the senior national team in August 2016, assigned with the tough task of steering Nigeria to World Cup qualification.

The coach, not only guided the three-time African champions to qualification for Russia 2018, he also did it in grand style as the West Africans were the first team in the continent to secure a berth in the Mundial.

The former Bayern Munich defender has managed the Super Eagles in eleven games since his appointment in 2016.
