NFF to offer Rohr new contract with stringent conditions
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president, Amaju Pinnick, has hinted that Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr will be given a contract extension with the country’s national men’s football team, but with some conditions.
Speaking on Arise TV on Monday, the NFF boss outlined three major conditions the German tactician will be required to accept and meet if he is to continue as the Super Eagles technical adviser.
The NFF president said: “In one week, Rohr will get his contract; he should study his contract and come back to us. So, give and take, within seven days, he should have his contract.
“We have told him. He must live in Nigeria. His salary will be in Naira. He must go around the leagues and see how he can nurture the players.
“If he is able to accept it, we have a deal. There are a lot of coaches that want to coach Nigeria,” Pinnick added.
Rohr, whose current contract runs out in July qualified Nigeria for the 2018 World Cup in Russia and also led Super Eagles to a 3rd-place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
