Nigeria Football Federation has expressed its gratitude to former head coach Gernot Rohr for his services to the Super Eagles.
The Nigerian Football Governing Body part ways with the Franco-German tactician after five years and four months in charge of the squad.
Rohr was appointed after the Super Eagles failed to qualify for back to back African Cup of Nations in 2014 and 2016 respectively.
However, the former Gabon and Burkina Faso handler achieved immediate success as he qualified Nigeria for the 2018 World Cup and 2019 African Cup of Nations with a game to spare.
He also qualified Nigeria for the 2022 AFCON edition billed for Cameroon and the final phase of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, before leaving his role with the Nigeria Football Federation.
General Secretary of the NFF, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi said they are grateful to the former Bayern Munich defender for his enormous contributions to the team:
“The relationship between the Nigeria Football Federation and Mr. Rohr has come to an end. We thank him for his services to the Super Eagles and Nigeria.” He said.
Rohr who is the longest-serving Super Eagles coach, managed 54 matches, won 28, drew 13, and lost 13.
Austin Eguaveon will now take charge of the team as it begins preparations for the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations taking place in Cameroon 9th January – 6th February 2022, and until the appointment of a substantive Head Coach.
