The Super Eagles of Nigeria ma have started their AFCON 2021 qualifying campaign on a perfect note-winning their first two matches, but they could be without a manager by the time the series resume next year.
And that’s because the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) have failed to act swiftly over Gernot Rohr’s contract renewal. The contract of the team’s technical adviser expires in six months with no renewal offer on the table yet.
Although he would love to extend his contract, the former Bordeaux manager revealed he has been approached by other Federations and would start talking to them if NFF fail to offer him a new deal before January.
“I’m ready to discuss as I have other federations who want me but I tell them that my priority is to discuss with the NFF.
“But after January 1, I’ll be free to sign where I want. So I think the next step is to wait to see what NFF is doing.”
Rohr was appointed as Super Eagles manager in 2016 and has overseen qualifications for two major events with a game to spare, while he also led the team to a third place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations.
