An official of Algeria Football Federation has opened up on the link the body has with Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr, and stressed that they do not have anything concrete with the Franco-German gaffer yet.
Though reports are replete with interest in Rohr by the Algerian FA, the official stressed that an agreement is yet to be reached with the former Bayern Munich defender, who took Nigeria to the ongoing World Cup in Russia.
Mauritanian journalist, Lassana Camara had announced the imminent arrival of Rohr as replacement for the dismissed Rabah Madjer, but this has been denied by the Algerian official.
In the same vein, a reliable Algerian sports newspaper confirmed that Rohr is in Algeria’s short-list for the job, but added that the Eagles’ handler is not favourite to get the nod.
This, though, has been attributed to information that the Algerian soccer federation know that getting Rohr will not come cheap, as he earns approximately 40,000 euros a month.
Consequently, Algeria are yet to make any formal move for the former manager of Niger Republic, Burkina Faso and Gabon national teams, who was appointed Nigeria coach in 2016.
”There is nothing official about Gernot Rohr. There is a list with a lot of coaches but for the moment you have to know that nothing has been done. There is nothing official. For me, these are just rumours,” the Algeria Football Federation insider affirmed.
