Gernot Rohr still remains Super Eagles coach- NFF


The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF says there is no truth to reports that it has sacked Super Eagles’ head Coach, Gernot Rohr.

Rohr’s name played widely in both local and international media, with most platforms stating that the 68-year old has been sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation.

However, the President of the NFF, Amaju Melvin Pinnick, said that no such decision has been taken.

“The Board of the NFF is studying the report of the Technical Committee, which is submitted after the match against Cape Verde in Lagos on Tuesday. There are a number of possibilities, but we have not taken a decision to sack Gernot Rohr. I want to assure you that whatever decision is eventually taken will be one that will please the generality of Nigerians.

“Rohr has a contract with the NFF and there is a procedure for disengagement. If we get to that bridge, both parties will look at the contract and see what has to be done both ways. The Super Eagles squad is a national asset and we are just fortunate to be in that space to make decisions. Any decision we take must be what will be acceptable to Nigerians from far and near,” Pinnick added.

Rohr has led the Super Eagles in 54 international matches over the course of five years and three months, winning 28 of those matches.
