Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr was present at the first training session of selected Nigeria Professional Football League players in Abuja on Wednesday.

The minister of sports and youth development, Sunday Dare, on Thursday said Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr’s continued stay at the helm of affairs will be decided next week.

The minister made this disclosure during a ministerial press briefing hosted by the presidential media team at the presidential palace in Abuja.

Dare was asked if the national team coach had been fired or if he had been asked to resign, following rumours he had been sacked.

While he could not say much about the situation, he promised that the NFF report will be completed next week and that the ministry would respond in accordance with the information provided.
