Ahmed Yusuf Fresh, vice chairman of the committee, said the team was convinced of the former German defender’s suitability for the job after a long session with him in Abuja on Saturday.
“The committee was impressed with Mr. Rohr’s profile and current activities for the German Football Federation (DFB), so we invited him to Nigeria for exhaustive deliberations. He was very positive, showed great interest in the job and is ready and willing to live in Nigeria.
He is also willing to work with indigenous Nigerian coaches and with the committee, and believes the Super Eagles can qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which is very important to the NFF. He swayed the committee with his calmness, good knowledge of the African terrain, focus and maturity” Ahmed Yusuf said.

The NFF legal department is working on the final draft of the contract but we have agreed on a range of terms and conditions. The Secretariat will present the full contract to Mr. Rohr in the following days and the Executive Board will contact Mr. Rohr for the final negotiations.”
