Super Eagles’ Chief Coach Gernot Rohr has told www.adantesports.com.ng in Abuja that he would be legally free to discuss with other nation as from January 1st, 2020 when it would be 6months to the expiration of his contract as the Chief Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
“The situation regarding my contract with the Nigeria Football Federation is simple. My contract is going until June 2020. We have started the qualifiers (for the 2021 AFCON). We are on a good way now to qualify. So I am ready to discuss. I have also other (football) federation who wants to have me but I told them for the moment my priority is to discuss with the NFF.
“That is the situation but after the 1st of January, 2020 I am free to sign with whoever I want. After the first of July, 2020 I will be free. That is the situation and that’s why I think the next step will be to wait for what NFF is doing. We have our team, we have our plan, our project, we have our program to go to the 2021 AFCON first and to start the (2022) World Cup qualifiers because everybody wants to go to the World Cup and this team has a good chance to go there”, Rohr told www.adantesports.com.ng.
