We have not sacked Genrot Rohr – Pinnick

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

This comes after swirling media reports that Rohr was given the boot after a string of uninspiring displays with the senior national side, who are in the playoff stage of the qualifiers for next year’s World Cup.

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

“The Board of the NFF is studying the report of the Technical Committee, which it 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.

“Mr 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.”

Rohr, a former Germany international defender, has been in charge of the Super Eagle since 2016.
