Rohr Offers To Help Former Club Bordeaux In Relegation Fight

Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr has offered to help his former club Girondis Bordeaux following their dismal run in Ligue 1 this season, reports

Bordeaux, who are battling to escape the drop currently occupy 16th position on the table.

Les Girondis are without a win in their last 12 league game, with 11 defeats and one draw.

Rohr featured as player for Bordeaux from 1977 to 1989 and scored 13 goals in 352 appearances.

The German has also coached the club in the past, leading them to the final of the UEFA Cup in 1996 where they lost to Bayern Munich over two legs, 0–2 away and 1–3 at home.

The 67-year-old insists he is available if the club needs him to help salvage their season.

“Jean-Louis Gasset has experience, he has tried things but he also seems a little lost in this situation,”

“We need solidarity above all. There are 5 points ahead of the team in 18th position. Four points in five matches, it’s possible! […] I have always been the man of the club.

”Currently, I am under contract with Nigeria. But if it is to help the Girondins, I will always be available . ”

      read what u wrote if it make sense to u, how many of our ex-coach ever offer to help a top club to survive relegation. name any previous coach that have opened our eyes and bring out the best of our boys like rohr, or any coach that have attracted foreign born like him. Low for germany coach for years without winning a trophy not until 2014 they won, did heaven fall, if u c what is good praise it. one day it will b ur turn.

    • So you’d always secretly believed he can do it for Nigeria then why live in denial in public all along?

    Good one, but I hope he doesn’t get unnecessarily distracted….the upcoming WCQ will be SERIOUS business, most especially the latter knockout stages where the big guns from the continent lie in wait….this period is the time to recharge after qualifying for the AFCON, refocus and then restrategize for the real job ahead
