Coach of the Nigerian senior national football team, Gernot Rohr, has opened up on reports that he has plans to resign from his role.
Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has insisted that he has no plans to resign from his role.

Rohr, speaking to newsmen on Monday, said he does not regret failing to lead Nigeria past the group stages of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

“When you have a team playing this good, beating Iceland who are ranked 20 in the world, while we are 49, a team that had Argentina who are number six in the world close to a knockout, who would think of resigning from this team?

“You would need to question your own work. No, it’s out of the question for me right now. Our project is also focused on the 2018 AFCON as well as the next World Cup,” he said.

Nigeria’s next competitive match is in September, when they play a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles.
