Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has confirmed he has agreed on a two-and-half-year contract extension with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
The 66-year-old’s current deal ends next month and has been in discussion with the federation over a renewal since January.
The delay to reach an agreement generated speculation that the governing body is looking to do away with the services of the Franco-German tactician and former internationals had been linked to the job.
The rumours have now been laid to rest after Rohr revealed he has been handed an opportunity by the federation to continue in his role.
“Yes, I can confirm that we found an agreement with NFF to continue our collaboration for two and half years,” Rohr told the Cable.
“I am proud of the confidence shown by NFF, it is rare to work in the same national team for more than six years.
“Our team has a good future, our players have discipline and the staff is working in the same spirit.”
Rohr has been in charge of the Super Eagles since 2016 and qualified the team for the 2018 World Cup in Russia with ease.
