Ex international, Victor Ikpeba has urged the Nigeria Football Federation to extend the contract of the Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr in a bid to maintain stability in the team.
Rohr’s contract will expire in June 2020 and there are fears that the football house may end their relationship with him.
During a Monday Football Night Programm on Supersports that was monitored by Thepledge.ng, the Atlanta Olympic gold medalist advised the NFF to retain the German tactician so that he could continue with his good job.
“I will advise the Nigeria Football Federation to extend Gernot Rohr’s contract because he has brought stability, progress and winning mentality to the team.
“I don’t see any reason why the NFF will want to sack a man that must have qualify the team to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in June next year. For me, Rohr deserves a contract renewal and should be allowed to continue with the good job he has been doing.
“How do you think it will look hiring a new coach to manage the Super Eagles after the expiration of his contract in June next summer. In my view, let’s allow Rohr to continue his good job on the Super Eagles.
