Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr said it is hard for his team to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations because they are not the best team on the continent.
The German tactician recently agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal to continue his work as the handler of the three-time African champions, putting to bed speculations surrounding his future.
On Wednesday, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick revealed the conditions in the new contract which include a mandate to qualify the country for the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar and also win the next Afcon in Cameroon.
The 66-year-old guided the Super Eagles to a third-place finish in Egypt last year, however, he disclosed that the new target might be difficult to achieve.
“When you go to a tournament it is to win it,” Rohr told BBC Sport .
“We finished third in the last one, and everybody wants to progress. But we know also that it is very difficult to win this tournament because we are not number one in Africa.
“But it is good to have these milestones and ambition.”
