Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr is expected to sign a new contract with the Nigeria Football Federation next week, reports Thecitypulsenews.

Rohr has been locked in discussion with the NFF over an extension to his current contract which is expected to end in June.

The NFF insisted on inserting several clauses in Rohr’s new contract which the German trainer seems ready to abide with.

“The executive committee mandated the general secretary to liase with Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr, with a view to concluding all matters around his new contract within the next one week,” according a statement by the NFF.

The 66-year-old took charge of the Super Eagles in 2016 and qualified the three-time African champions to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Super Eagles however failed to progress beyond the group stage at the competition.

Rohr also led the Super Eagles to a third place at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
