German tactician Gernot Rohr expected to sign new Super Eagles contract next week, according to Nigeria Football Federation.

The 66-year-old former Bordeaux coach took charge of the three-time Africa Champions in 2016 has been locked in discussion with the NFF over an extension to his current contract which is expected to end in June.

The NFF insisted on inserting several clauses in Rohr’s new contract which the German trainer seems ready to abide with.

“The executive committee mandated the general secretary to liaise with Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr, with a view to concluding all matters around his new contract within the next one week,” according to a statement by the NFF.

Rohr qualified Nigeria to the 2018 World Cup but Super Eagles failed to progress beyond the group stage at the competition in Russia.

Rohr also led the Super Eagles to a third-place at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
