Rohr Linked With Ghana Coaching Job

 

Former Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has been linked with the vacant Black Stars coaching job, Sportivation.com.ng reports

It will be recalled that Ghana recently sacked their Serbian coach, Milovan Rajevac who took the team to the ongoing Nations Cup which ended on a disappointing note.

The Black Stars lost to Comoros 3-2 to finish bottom of their group.

Gernot Rohr was sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation in December following poor performances by the Super Eagles.

According to Ghanaweb, who claimed a source close to Rohr said he would be interested in taking the Ghana job

“Gernot (Rohr) is very much open to the Ghana job. Ghana football has great potential and his experience of the African game will help him steer the team in the right direction.

“His knowledge of African football is deep especially with West African teams. Besides Nigeria, he also handled Burkina Faso and the Niger Republic. Rohr also had a stint with Gabon in 2017. He has now the quality to handle the Black Stars.

“Gernot achieved FIFA World Cup qualification with Nigeria in 2018 and is keen on guiding Ghana to the 2022 edition. Ghana has big-name players like Andre Ayew, Thomas Partey, Daniel Amartey amongst others who are hungry to play at the FIFA World Cup and Gernot can help turn that dream into a reality.”

Ghana will battle it out with Nigeria in a FIFA World Cup play-off clash with the first leg slated for Baba Yara Stadium on March 23 while the second leg is fixed for March 29 at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

Gernot Rohr led the Super Eagles to a third-place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
