The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) says it has completed its new contract agreement with Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr.

The NFF president Amaju Pinnick stated this in a statement released on his twitter handle.

I’m happy to announce that the NFF 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,” he said.

He also insisted that at no time did the Federation lose confidence in the abilities of the German-born tactician.

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 to take our football forward and I’m convinced our football will only get better from here on.”


Rohr took over as coach of Nigeria in 2016 and since then has led the team to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.

He is expected to pilot the affairs of all national teams henceforth and also focus on building a solid foundation for Nigerian football.
