Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has agreed to the terms and conditions of a new two-year contract sent to him by the Nigeria Football Federation.
New clauses were included in the new contract which were contentious but a member of Rohr’s backroom staff has confirmed that the coach will sign the new contract.
He said the Eagles coach had already agreed to the terms of the new deal. His current contract will expire in June, 2020.
He said the draft sent to the Franco-German was agreed on and the federation would send the contract document to the coach to sign by next week.
“He (Rohr) has accepted the new terms and it’s just a matter of days before the deal is sealed. He loves Nigeria and he is excited to coach the Eagles again,” he said.
Some contentious clauses in the new contract which was not in the previous one are:
1. He must reside in Nigeria
2. His salary will be paid in Naira
3. He must watch local league matches with a view to picking players that could be nurtured to become international stars.
