Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has lost his mother, Madam Elisabeth Rohr on Thursday.
Late Elisabeth Rohr died at the age of 97.
Recall that Rohr led the senior national team to a 2-2 draw against Ukraine in Tuesday’s international friendly game at the Dnipro Arena.
The news of the incident was confirmed via the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) twitter handle @Thenff on Thursday.
It reads: “We commiserate with @NGSuperEagles Head coach, Mr. Gernot Rohr who just lost his mother Madam Elisabeth Rohr. She was 97. May her soul rest in peace.”
The news would come as a shock to the German tactician, who helped Nigeria to claim a bronze medal at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
