Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has terminated its relationship with Super Eagles boss, Gernot Rohr, and has appointed Mr Augustine Eguavoen as an interim boss of the national team with immediate effect.

The Franco-German manager who has been in charge of the Super Eagles since 2016, recently became Nigeria’s longest serving manager, and will now be replaced by Eguavoen who was Nigeria’s captain when she won her first AFCON trophy on away soil, Tunisia, twenty-seven years ago.

Following a virtual meeting of the NFF Executive Committee on Sunday, it was decided that Eguavoen will work with Salisu Yusuf (Chief Coach); Paul Aigbogun (Assistant Coach); Joseph Yobo (Assistant Coach); Dr Terry Eguaoje (Assistant Coach) and Aloysius Agu (Goalkeeper Trainer).

Also, former Nigeria captains Augustine ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, Nwankwo Kanu and Garba Lawal have been appointed to provide technical and ambassadorial support for the crew.

General Secretary of the NFF, Dr Mohammed Sanusi said: “The relationship between the Nigeria Football Federation and Mr Rohr has come to an end. We thank him for his services to the Super Eagles and Nigeria.

“We also want to thank the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports for their collaboration and guidance all through.”

Eguavoen, a former Nigeria captain, will now take charge of the team as it begins preparations for the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations taking place in Cameroon 9th January – 6th February 2022, and until the appointment of a substantive Head Coach.
