I Have Unfinished Business With Super Eagles – Gernot Rohr

Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr said he extended his contract with Nigeria because he has an unfinished business with the team, one of which is a fourth Africa Cup of Nations.

The German-born coach will, according to reports, earn 49,000 dollars a month instead of the 55,000 dollars stipulated in his previous contract and he will live in Nigeria for at least 10 months a year.

The Super Eagles have won the Africa Cup of Nations three times in 1980, 1994 and 2013.

Rohr led Nigeria to third place at last year’s Africa Cup in Egypt, where they lost 2-1 to eventual champions Algeria in the semi-finals after conceding a stoppage-time goal.

His team top their qualifying group for the 2021 Nations Cup slated for Cameroon with six points after winning their first two games against second-placed Benin and Lesotho, who are third.
