Rohr has a fantastic career which spanned over 17 years. At least 12 years he spent in France, Bordeaux. For Nigeria, the 63-year-old Gernot Rohr football manager is quite a mystery. He used to manage such teams and countries, like Burkina Faso, Niger, Gabon, Nantes, Etoile du Sahel, Ajaccio, Young Boys, Nice and Bordeaux.

Nevertheless, in Gernot Rohr history, he managed to stay more than a year on his position only three times. Moreover, his management career has not been so bright for the last decade.

In 1996, he managed Girondins Bordeaux. He helped Bordeaux win AC Milan in quarter-finals. In 1999, he was the sports director of Eintracht Frankfurt. After that, he worked for Creteil in 1999, for Nice in 2002, Young Boys in 2005, Ajaccio in 2007, for Etoile Sahel in 2008, Nantes in 2009, Gabon in 2010, Niger in 2012, Burkina Faso in 2015 and Nigeria since 2016.

One of his biggest failures was with Etoile in 2009. Due to the bad performance of the overall team, they gave the title to their rivals Esperance. According to the club spokesman, Taoufik Gahbiche, Gernot Rohr did not manage to level up the discipline and the style of play for the team.

The Tunisian giants are especially critical about Gernot Rohr work. The major fail was also with Nantes. The coach only managed to stay there for six months. In 2014, he was resigned from Niger National team. In 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, Niger lost three out of four games. Gernot Rohr explained that he was primarily responsible for that failure.

In 2016, he was shortlisted for the Guinea National Team, but, for some reasons, he didnít get that job. In August 2016, he was assigned coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria. The person who assigned him was Amaju Pinnick.

Gernot Rohr won his first game by defeating Tanzania. The first major loss was from South Africa. On October 2017, due to his help, Nigeria became the first African side to qualify for 2018 FIFA World Cup.
