Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, has said he is still under contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), thereby dismissing speculations linking him with Morocco and Gabon.

The Atlas Lions are looking for a new coach, following the exit of Herve Renard, who failed to guide them past the second round of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

But Rohr denies he had made contact with the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (RMFF).

“Though I’ve heard the rumours that Morocco wanted me, the truth is that nobody has contacted me about any job; I also heard that people in Gabon are also thinking about me,” Rohr said in an interview with Sportinglife.ng.

“But I cannot even negotiate with another country because I still have a binding contract with Nigeria.

“Of course, it is an honour to be mentioned than for no country to want you at all but I’m still under contract. I still have a one year contract with Nigeria.

“I think everybody saw the good job being done here in Nigeria whereby we came from being number 11 to become number three in Africa.”

Former Ghanian attacker and Nottingham Forest forward, Junior Agogo has died in a London hospital at the age of 40.

Though the cause of his death is yet to be known, Agogo suffered from a stroke in 2015 and had to battle public stigma during his recovery.

The ex-Ghana international had several stints across England, USA, Egypt and his last competitive outing was at Hibernian back in 2012.

He was a standout player for Ghana at the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations on home soil where he scored three goals in six outings as the Black Stars settled for third-place.

His notable contribution during the continental competition was his late match-winning effort that gave Ghana a 2-1 win over arch-rivals Nigeria.

Agogo made his international debut for the West African country in 2006 and he went on to score 12 goals in 27 international appearances.

Prior to his death, the former Sheffield Wednesday and Bristol Rovers attacker went into the fitness training business in England.
