NFF reveals why Rohr can’t be sacked as Super Eagles coach

NEWSMAN, Abuja – President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has affirmed they cannot fire Gernot Rohr as head coach of the Super Eagles, because of the cost.

Rohr has come under intense criticism, after the team failed to win any game in 2020.

The Eagles lost to Algeria and played a 1-1 draw against Tunisia in last month’s international friendly matches.

The three-time African champions ended the year with two disappointing draws against Sierra Leone in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

It led to the Minister of Sport and Youth Development, Sunday Dare, hinting that Rohr could be axed, DAILYPOST reported.

Meanwhile, Pinnick insists Nigeria cannot afford to sack the German, especially since he just signed a new two-year deal in May.

Pinnick said in an interview with NTA, “We cannot afford to sack Gernot Rohr. We cannot.”

Rohr has been in charge of the Super Eagles since 2016 and has led Nigeria to the 2018 World Cup with a game to spare and repeated the same feat for 2019 AFCON, finishing in third place.

His new deal expires after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
