Rohr Confirms Talks With Mali Over Vacant National Team Job

Former Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that he has held talks with the Mali Football Federation (FEMAFOOT) over the vacant national team job, reports Completesports.com.

FEMAFOOT sacked erstwhile Eagles head coach Mohamed Magassouba in March following the team’s failure to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Former Cameroon head coach Winifred Schafer and Mali international Eric Chelle are the two other coaches shortlisted for the post.

“The conversation with Mali has been very professional and respectful,” Rohr told BBC Sport Africa.

“It takes some days but nothing has been finalised. Mali has a young team with potential so it is very interesting.”

      Thanks brother. I will try to read the bible verse. I pray for forgiveness. I also apologise to readers offended. That imposter did it to me once and I recall you telling him not to impersonate you. I took the high road on that occasion to ignore him. May God forgive all our sins.

  • @Sean, the Impostor, keep it coming boy. Today, you see it as fun but later, what will stop you will surely stop you. Enjoy.
