Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has revealed that it was some of the national team players that urged him to stay back in face of the public out-cry over his handling of the team.

Rohr who has one year left to his contract faced criticisms after the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

 The Super Eagles came third, a result that has come to be regarded as their AFCON standard performance.

However, the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF said they would not do away with the coach.
