Federation (NFF) as a replacement for Super Eagles’ Manager, Gernot Rohr, whose contract with Nigeria ends the month.

According to reports, top officials of the ministry want 73-year-old Redknapp, whose last coaching job was in 2017, to take over Rohr’s position.

Recently, Sports Minister, Gernot Rohr was quoted as saying that all he wants is for a competent coach, whether Rohr or another person, to manage the Eagles, a statement some reports say is a sign that Rohr’s days in the country are numbered.

But the Special Adviser to the Minister on Media, John Joshua Akanji, has debunked the claims.

Joshua told The Guardian yesterday that the minister was not involved in employing any coach for the Super Eagles, adding, “The ministry doesn’t react to rumours and speculations.

“The minister wants the best coach for Nigeria and he is not going to compromise on that. He said it does not matter whether it is Rohr or whoever…all he wants is for the NFF to employ the best coach period for the country,” he said. (Guardian NG)
