There are indications that the Super Eagles Coach, Genot Rohr might be sacked soon.
Contrary to reports earlier in the day that he has been relieved of his duties, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick, debunked the news.
In his words:
“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 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 take decisions. Any decision we take must be what will be acceptable to Nigerians from far and near.”
Gernot Rohr, however, has been told to consider resignation due to the toxic environment created by team’s performance.
He was appointed Super Eagles coach in August 2016 and took charge of his first game in September 2016 against Tanzania which the team won 1-0.
His records as of November 18th 2021 are below:
- 62 games
- Won 34
- Drawn 15
- Loss 13.
He is the longest serving Super Eagles coach in history yet with no trophy to his name.
