Rohr comments on his future

Rohr comments on his future

Nigeria Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has said he is in no hurry to decide his future.

Following Nigeria’s semi-finals elimination from AFCON 2019, coach Rohr’s future has become a topic of conversation.

The 66-year-old coach took over the Super Eagles bench in 2016 and has one year left on his contract.

"There is no hurry because we want to finish third now. We will take a look at my overall results after the third-place match," Rohr told BBC Sport.

"I'm still under contract for another year, so we will see what is decided together. There are positives for us to look at on this journey, but after this final game we can think and then talk about the future."

Rohr also took the time to suggest that he was left content with Nigeria’s AFCON 2019 attempt.

"The team is already on a good level. After the World Cup, we tried to rejuvenate the team," he added. When you're playing in the semi-final of this big tournament you are already at a very good level.”

"I also want to see the players who couldn't play in this tournament yet, to finally have a team where everybody played."
