Nigerians who are waiting for the exit of Franco-German Gernot Rohr from the Super Eagles job may heave sigh of relief soon as four African countries want to hire him.
Rohr, 66, led Super Eagles to the semi final of the just concluded 32nd Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt and won the bronze with a 1-0 defeat of Tunisia in the Third Place match last Wednesday.
However, since Nigeria failed to reach the final, there have been calls for the termination of Rohr’s contract. He is largely perceived to have failed at the tournament despite meeting the target of a semi final finish at Egypt 2019.
We learnt at the weekend that Morocco and three other countries have made enquiries about the gaffer and want to hire him.
If the coach accepts to leave, this will save the NFF the payment of the $1million pay off clause in his contract that is not due to expire until next year.
Under Rohr, Nigeria has recorded 20 wins in 35 matches, drawn five and lost 10 since he took charge of the team in 2016.
