Gernot Rohr was appointed the Super Eagles technical adviser in 2016 after the Nigeria Football Federation received a recommendation through the body’s technical and development committee.

Rohr was initially appointed to work with the chief coach of the team Salisu Yusuf who was later ousted in 2018 after being found guilty of receiving a bribe.

The Franco-German already had stints with African countries including Gabon, Niger Republic and Burkina Faso before his appointment by Nigeria.

He led Nigeria to become the first African side to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, but the Super Eagles crashed out of the competition in the first round.
