President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has announced that the body have reached an agreement with Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr over a new contract, reports Completesports.com.

Discussions over a new deal have been going on since 2019 with problems arising after the NFF insisted that Rohr spend more time in Nigeria.

Rohr will now remain in charge of the Super Eagles for the next two years.

The 66-year-old contract was due to run out next month.

“I’m happy to announce that the @thenff and Coach Gernot Rohr have concluded all contractual discussions and he will stay on as Coach of the Super Eagles. We have always had confidence in his abilities and we are confident that the national team can only go higher from here,”Pinnick wrote on Twitter handle.

“We can now focus on qualifying for the World Cup and winning the Nations Cup. In truth, these are sacrosanct and Coach Rohr is aware of these conditions. Like the Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development has rightly noted; we are uncompromising in these goals.

“The board of the Federation & I are totally in agreement with the minister on the goals for the team and it is unwavering.

“In the same vein, I would like to thank our sponsors, especially @aiteogrp. AITEO’s support for our football is unquantifiable, even in these difficult times and I cannot stress enough, how much of a rock they have been.

“With the distraction of the contract talks out of the way now, we can now face our football on the pitch, totally. Again, I never lost confidence in Gernot Rohr’s ability to take our football forward and I’m convinced our football will only get better from here on.”

Rohr was appointed Super Eagles head coach in 2016 and qualified the three-time African champions to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

He also led the team to a third place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
