Russia 2018: Is Gernot Rohr Dumping Super Eagles For Algeria?
Coach Gernot Rohr may have reached the height of his career as Super Eagles handler after leading the side to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Super Eagles were only able to win one match – 2-0 against Iceland before crashing out at the group stage.
While players and fans of the Super Eagles are shifting focus to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in September, Rohr has been shortlisted to replace Rabah Madjer who was sacked recently for suffering defeats to Iran, Saudi Arabia, Cape Verde and Portugal.
Algerian sports newspaper, Le Buteur, is reporting that the leadership of the Algerian Federation, including president Kheiredine Zetchi, have shortlisted Gernot Rohr as one of the candidates to replace Madjer.
Le Buteur reports there is an ‘exit clause’ in Rohr's new deal with the Super Eagles that allows him to negotiate a deal with another team.
Other coaches in the running for the job are Christian Gourcuff, Vahid Halilhodzic, Hervé Renard, Carlos Queiroz, Alain Giresse.
