NFF president Amaju Pinnick has announced German tactician Genort Rohr agrees new Super Eagles contract after both parties reached an agreement.
The 66-year-old will now remain in charge of the three-time African Champions for the next two years.
Pinnick revealed the new contract agreement with Rohr on his Twitter handle.
I’m happy to announce that the @thenff and Coach Gernot Rohr have concluded all contractual discussions and he will stay on as Coach of the Super Eagles. We have always had confidence in his abilities and we are confident that the national team can only go higher from here.— Amaju Melvin Pinnick (@PinnickAmaju) May 27, 2020
We can now focus on qualifying for the World Cup and winning the Nations Cup. In truth, these are sacrosanct and Coach Rohr is aware of these conditions. Like the Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development has rightly noted; we are uncompromising in these goals.— Amaju Melvin Pinnick (@PinnickAmaju) May 27, 2020
The board of the Federation & I are totally in agreement with the minister on the goals for the team and it is unwavering.— Amaju Melvin Pinnick (@PinnickAmaju) May 27, 2020
In the same vein, I would like to thank our sponsors, especially @aiteogrp. AITEO’s support for our football is unquantifiable, even in these difficult…
…times and I cannot stress enough, how much of a rock they have been.— Amaju Melvin Pinnick (@PinnickAmaju) May 27, 2020
Thank you, AITEO.
With the distraction of the contract talks out of the way now, we can now face our football on the pitch, totally. Again, I never lost confidence in Gernot Rohr’s ability…
Rohr was appointed Super Eagles head coach in 2016 and qualified the three-time African champions to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
He also led the team to a third place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
