German coach linked with Eagles’ job

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), may have settled for a German Coach, Gernot Rohr, to take charge of the Super Eagles five months after the resignation of Sunday Oliseh.

Rohr, 63, is currently working on development programmes for the German Football Association and he is expected to arrive in Nigeria anytime from now to finalise documentation with the NFF.

The former coach of Gabon, Niger and Burkina Faso is set to be unveiled by the Amaju Pinnick-led board of the federation.

Rohr has already accepted the terms and conditions of the job and is ready to stay in Nigeria and lead the Eagles to the FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

A top official of the NFF, who did not want to be named, told Thecable that Rohr is due in the country soon to go through formalities.
