German tactician Gernot Rohr might be at the healms of the Nigerian National team, but his position is almost taken by another foreigner as BBC Africa reports Mladen Krstajic to be the man NFF has chosen to replace him.
The German saw his role as the head coach of the Super Eagles come under serious scrutiny in recent weeks following poor run of both results and his style of play.
Some online media outlet even reported his dismissal after the Super Eagles booked their place in the final round of World Cup qualifiers in the African region.
The 1-1 draw against Cape Verde was enough to secure the spot but was not enough to appease Nigerians as calls for his sack sparked and created ripples on social media.
Several indoor meetings have been held on Rohr’s head to consider his future and inside sources have revealed that Serbian tactician Mladen Krstajic has been chosen to replace the German.
Mladen Krstajic is currently the head coach of Serbian club TSC as he helped them finish 5th in the 2020/2021 Serbian Superliga season.
And could be on his way to replace Rohr as the quest for a World Cup ticket and a serious challenge in the World Cup continues.
Rohr has also coached Gabon, Niger and Burkina Faso and is on a monthly salary of $45,000, appointed in August 2016 and has overseen Nigeria in 64 matches, of which he has won 35, a 54 win percentage which is considered not too good by Nigerian supporters while his style of play has been a major concern.
