Former Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has confirmed interests in coaching Mali Men’s national team.
Rohr, 68, said the Mali football federation (Fémafoot) has contacted him over the vacant role and talks are already going on.
The role became vacant following the dismissal of Mohamed Magassouba after he failed to qualify the team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The German was fired last year by the Nigeria Football Federation last November, but could return to management soon as he is favorite for the position.
Eric Chelle and Michel Dussuyer are the other names running for the job.
“Yes, they (Mali) contacted me indeed,” Rohr said. It’s a good team, which made an unfortunate exit at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and which is also eliminated from the World Cup. I saw the two play-offs against Tunisia; they could have qualified.
“They have very good players; it’s an interesting team. The verdict of Fémafoot is expected in the coming days.” He said on Europe 1 TV, via BeIN Sports.
Rohr was the longest serving Super Eagles Coach and qualified the team for every tournament during his time.
