Even though he has been officially annouced in some quarters as the new coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, German Coach Gernot Rohr says he is yet to accept the terms proposed to him by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

63 year old Rohr was officially named by the NFF as the Technical Adviser designate of the Super Eagles, after a meeting with the Technical Committee of the country’s football governing body.

However, it appears just like the case of when Frenchman Paul Le Guen denied accepting to coach Nigeria after he was announced as coach by the NFF, it looks like same is about to happen with German Rohr.

The former Burkina Faso manager was initially billed to watch the Nigeria Professional Football League game between Ikorodu United and Shooting Stars on Sunday, but refused to as it would mean he has officially start work in Nigeria.

As at the time of filing in this report, the German who is based in France, was getting set to return back to his base without signing the deal, hence postponing indefinitely his planned unveiling by the NFF earlier scheduled for today.

” I have not sign to coach Nigeria, we still have issues to iron out regarding terms of the contract, anything can still happen” He said to Owngoalnigeria.com German contact Jon Eberl.
