The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) was on the verge of severing contract with national team coach Gernot Rohr last month, but for the Super Eagles players’ insistence that the German be retained, Completesports.com can exclusively report.

Rohr’s contract was expected to elapse by the end of June, and the NFF renewed it last month after protracted contract talks that dragged since 2019. The German got a fresh two and a half year mandate to manage the Super Eagles to win the AFCON and qualify for World Cup

“It is true that the NFF was ready to replace Rohr and we’re looking at the documents of some European and a South American coaches who wanted the job before the players contributions were sought-after. Rohr had agreed to all the new conditions we thought he would reject in an effort to keep his job,” our source who is an influencial member of the NFF divulged to Completesports.com.

“With the support of higher authorities Rohr was not going to get his contract renewed until we decided to reach out to some Super Eagles players and get their support, but we were shocked when they insisted that they want the Franco/German coach to continue.”

Our impeccable source added: “I tell you, Rohr’s contract was not going to be renewed despite his agreeing to new conditions inserted in his offer, but the players clinched the job for him with their insistence that they don’t want to start all over again with a new coach. We saw reason with them and had to convince government to allow us to give him a new contract

“It is not true that we were set to contract [Harry] Redknapp to replace Rohr. However, there were not a good number of coaches who wanted to coach the Super Eagles. We are glad to have renewed the contract and we are confident Rohr will do better this time around. He is a good coach and we are sticking with him.”
