Gernot Rohr

The Nigeria Football Federation has announced that German Gernot Rohr has signed a two-year deal to work as a technical adviser. The 63-year-old ex-Gabon, Niger and Burkina Faso coach will be assisted by Salisu Yusuf, who was appointed as chief coach last month. The NFF’s technical committee recommended Rohr after the federation failed to reach an agreement with Frenchman Paul Le Guen last month. “I am enthusiastic to get to work,” Rohr told the NFF website. “This is a big challenge because Nigeria has big players everywhere and has the ability to do well internationally. “I have a German heart – the heart of a winner. “I have confidence that with the right atmosphere and the right support, the Super Eagles have the capacity not only to qualify for the World Cup, but get to the latter stages of the competition.”
