Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr is grieving the passing of his mother at the age of 97.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) announced the passing of Rohr’s mum on their social media accounts.
“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 NFF wrote in a statement.
It is not clear the exact day Rohr’s mum died but Rohr will have time to grieve and lay his mum to rest with the international break over.
