Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr 'set to quit his role'
Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr is expected to quit his role despite leading Nigeria to a third-place finish in this year's Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt. The 66-year-old German was criticized by many over his ‘lack of tactical nous’ or, in other words, an ‘inability to read matches’ at the tournament. According to ESPN, Rohr is uncertain if he wants to carry on as head coach of Nigeria. “A lot of things have been going on but he has taken it all because he does not want to cause any controversy. “But now, he is not sure if he will continue,” sources have told ESPN. A meeting between Rohr and Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick, who appointed him in August 2016 will hold this week as part of that assessment.
