Current Super Eagles' Coach - Gernot Rohr may not be retained and the coach of the Nigerian senior football team according to reports.

The German tactician who have accounted for some improvements in the tactical display of the Super Eagles seems not to be in the good books of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF). In fact, it is believed that the NFF have reached a verbal agreement with another top class coach who may likely take up his office.

Rohr's contract will expire in June 2020; and there's a high chance that he won't be able to conclude the great work he had begun in the team. Regarding his work ethics through the Super Eagles, the Minister of Sports and NFF executives are quite unimpressed with Rohr's work so far.

A source in the NFF had recently made a categorical statement with a correspondent that the NFF’s chieftains would have informed the coach about their intention to allow him go. The reason why they couldn't do this was because of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Sierra Leone (home and away fixtures) which was supposed to take place on March 27 and April 2 respectively.

As it stands now, the postponment of the fixture due to the coronavirus pandemic has once again hastened the threats to Rohr's service as the coach of the Nigerian senior team.

Meanwhile, another source was of the opinion that Gernot Rohr has not helped himself through his actions; coupled with his inability to convince the Nigerian Sports Minister - Sunday Dare, on his ability to take the team to the next level.
