“We trust the NFF and the board members that will take the right decision.
“We don’t need to ridicule the whole thing”. He told brila.
Gernot Rohr was hired in 2016 and has qualified the Super Eagles for the 2018 Russia world cup and 2019 African cup of Nations where they finish third.

The 41-year-old played 12 times for the Super Eagles of Nigeria scoring 5 goals between 2000 to 2004.
