Rohr to extend Nigeria contract

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has finalised signing a new two-year deal that will see him continue beyond the World Cup.

 

The German is rewarded for negotiating a tough World Cup qualifying group that included African champions Cameroon, Algeria and Zambia.

"We offered him a new contract which he has accepted," Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick told BBC Sport.

"They are going about the documentation now. His contract expires after the World Cup but we have offered him another two years with a slight pay increase.

"He has radiated being that father figure for the team and has made the players understand that if "I lead well, you guys will follow well.

"The team spirit is what has been counting for us on the field and off the field.

"He has been able to instil in the boys a sense of patriotism, a sense of discipline, and he's been able to show them that if you are not disciplined then you cannot make an impact.

"Gernot has been exceptional as a coach."
