The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare says the issue of contract extension for Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr lies with the Nigeria Football Federation.
Rohr’s current contract expires in June 2020 which will fall to the middle of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.
Dare, however, stressed that the ministry would continue to give the coach all the necessary support as the NFF finalises its meeting on the contract talks.
“The issue of contract (with Rohr) will be best handled by the NFF, I understand the need to work the fine lines,”Dare told reporters in Abuja.
“I understand there is a contractual arrangement with the NFF, I will allow the NFF to work through its process.”
Rohr has been in charge of the Suoer Super Eagles since August 2016.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
