Rohr guided the Super Eagles to their eighth bronze medal in their history as the 66-year-old German tactician is facing an uncertain future after the just concluded competition but former Niger, Burkina Faso and Bordeaux coach has now denies move made Royal Moroccan Football Federation (RMFF) for his services.

Rohr said in an interview with "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,”

"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.”

Rohr took over the Super Eagles in 2016, Nigeria have recorded 20 wins in 35 matches, drawn five and lost 10 under his charge.
