Super Eagles of Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr is reportedly set to be sacked after 5-years as the NFF is in a meeting to finalize its decision.
It was a nervy moment across the country as the Eagles played a 1-1 draw to book a place in the final round of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The Eagles were pegged backwards towards the end of the final Group C game as Pedro Brito’s men pushed forward in search of the winning goal that could have seen them overtake Nigeria on the table.
Despite the Eagles’ qualification for the play-offs next March, fans were left unconvinced by the performance of the team and Rohr’s conservative approach, and once again called for the sack of the Franco-German tactician.
NFF has now decided to address his position, and is likely to be sacked.
According to Vanguard, the ongoing meeting is to allow the NFF to contact Rohr’s replacement and tidy upon his compensation.
Rohr was appointed head coach of the Super Eagles in August 2016 and led the team to a third-place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
