Rohr comments on Morocco link

Nigeria national team coach Gernot Rohr has dismissed reports linking him with the Morocco national team.

Following the not-so-popular confirmation that Rohr will stay on with the Super Eagles after taking Nigeria to the last four of AFCON 2019, the German coach has come up alongside several names to replace Harve Renard as coach of the Atlas Lions.

“Though I’ve heard the rumours that Morocco wanted me, the truth is that nobody has contacted me about any job; I also heard that people in Gabon are also thinking about me,” Rohr told

“But I cannot even negotiate with another country because I still have a binding contract with Nigeria.”

Rohr did, however, admit that it was an honour to be mentioned as one of the targets, but is of course still a Nigeria Football Federation employee.

“Of course, it is an honour to be mentioned than for no country to want you at all but I’m still under contract. I still have a one year contract with Nigeria.”

“I think everybody saw the good job being done here in Nigeria whereby we came from being number 11 to become number three in Africa,” Rohr concluded.
