Eagles: Rohr to storm Nigeria with 3 assistants

New Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr will soon assume work in Nigeria with three personal assistants, AfricanFootball.com has exclusively gathered.

The assistants include an adviser, a video analyser and a fitness trainer.

“Rohr will be in Nigeria with three assistants hand picked by him. They are an adviser, who the coach has made it very clear is not an assistant coach, a fitness trainer and a video analyser,” a top official informed.

“We want to believe he will pick up the expenses of these assistants.”

The Franco-German coach has signed a two-year contract with the target being to qualify Nigeria to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The 63-year-old Rohr has hit the ground running since his appointment after he watched the NPFL All-Stars in action during a playing tour of Spain.
