Redknapp not joining Nigeria after Rohr extension announced

Nigeria will not be hiring Harry Redknapp as their new manager.

The former West Ham United and Tottenham boss was linked with replacing Gernot Rohr as Super Eagles boss.

Instead the country's football association has announced Rohr has signed a contract extension.

"I am happy to announce that the NFF and Coach Gernot Rohr have concluded all contractual discussions and he will stay on as the coach of the Super Eagles', Amaju Pinnick, president of the NFF, said.

"We can now focus on qualifying for the World Cup and winning the Nations Cup. These are sacrosanct and Coach Rohr is aware of these conditions."
