Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has commented on growing suggestions that he may be nearing the end of his coaching career, firmly reassuring that ‘he feels very young.’
Rohr, who has been in charge of Nigeria since 2016, currently has a contract that runs until June 2020.
“I still have a great passion about football and I’m not thinking about my age at all. I feel very young,” he told The Nation.
“I feel very young in my mind; I don’t think I’m old because all the time, I have young people around me and young players with the Super Eagles.
Rohr went as far as giving a bit of a full body health report.
“Honestly, over the last 20 years, I haven’t seen anything going worse with me and the only problem is my right knee cap which can be replaced anytime I want it to be done because my brother did it too.
“It’s a little bit difficult to run unlike when I was younger but, generally, I don’t feel old,” concluded the German veteran.
