Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has said the Nigeria Football Federation Ridiculed him by publicly discussing his contract terms and said he would love not talk about the contract scenario as two wrongs do not make a right.
The African Cup of Nations silver bronze medalist said these while live on Instagram with former Media Officer the the Super Eagles Colin Udoh.
According to Gernot Rohr “I don’t speak publicly about contractual matters, It’s a thing of ridicule for the NFF to discuss my contract as it should be confidential”.
Some days ago, Amaju Pinnick, President of the Nigerian Football Federation, was on a Nigerian Television station and he stated clearly that the German tactician would have to agree to some clauses if he intends to keep his job as the Super Eagles gaffer.
According to Pinnick, Rohr would have to, this time stay in Nigeria on a permanent basis and would be mandated to visit Nigeria Professional Football League match venues in order to discover home based players and develop them for the national team.
In addition Rohr’s salaries will now be paid in naira as against foreign currency that he is currently receiving. Rohr will also start paying taxes as a worker in Nigeria.
Rohr said that he turned down so many juicy offers from different countries as he wants to take Nigeria to the 2021 Africa Cup Of Nations in Cameroon as well as the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
He said “I had a few offers from other countries that I turned down as i want to go to the AFCON and world cup with Nigeria.”
Gernot Rohr qualified and took Nigeria to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia where the three time African Champions exited in the first round.
After missing out on the 2015 and 2017 editions, the 66 year old also qualified Nigeria for the 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations in Egypt where Nigeria finished third behind Senegal and eventual Champions Algeria.
