Gernot Rohr’s future with the Super Eagles is uncertain, following discussion with the top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation.
Rohr has been under pressure from the media and fans, following the lackluster performances Super Eagles in just concluded FIFA World Cup qualifying Group phase.
The Super Eagles topped their Group and advanced to the next stage, but the team has been criticized for lack of direction, excitement, and quality of play.
The Super Eagles suffered a shocking 1-0 defeat to the Central African Republic at home last month but managed to bounce back to win the reverse fixture in Cameroon.
However, the poor display in their last two games against Liberia and Cape Verde has now forced the Nigeria Football Federation to reevaluate its position.
According to reports, the NFF top officials held a meeting with the Franco-German tactician and his assistants on Monday and weren’t convinced in their ability to continue leading the team.
The NFF Executives, Technical Committee & Technical Department were not convinced with the conversation with Rohr & his assistants and have decided to deactivate his contract.
Meanwhile, discussion is ongoing with a company to activate a mutual termination of his contract.
Rohr was hired in 2016 and he’s the longest-serving Super Eagles coach ever.
